Companies in the news:
Shaw Communications Inc.. (TSX:SJR.B). Up 55 cents, or 1.62 per cent, to $34.46. Shares in Shaw Communications rose Thursday, a day after it reported higher revenue and earnings for its latest fiscal quarter. The company says it had net income of $217 million on revenue of $1.387 billion in the three months ended Feb. 28, up from net income of $167 million on revenue of $1.363 billion in the same period a year ago. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization came to $637 million, beating analyst expectations of $612 million, according to financial data firm Refinitiv. Shaw says wireless service revenue rose 8.5 per cent to $218 million as it added 82,300 subscriptions, while wireline revenue dropped 0.8 per cent to $1.05 billion as it lost 65,800 subscriptions. Shaw's $26-billion deal to be sold to Rogers Communications Inc. continues to face federal and regulator scrutiny. The deal would create a company that owns Canada's two largest cable systems, the country's No. 1 and No. 4 wireless businesses, one of Canada's two direct-to-home satellite services, as well as a significant stake in Cogeco. Shaw's Freedom Mobile has said it will not participate in a wireless spectrum auction in June deemed crucial for the development of 5G networks.
