Companies in the news:
CannTrust Holdings Inc. — CannTrust Holdings Inc.’s move to voluntarily halt all sales and shipments of its cannabis products amid Heath Canada’s investigation into illegal cultivation at one of the company’s facilities has further fuelled its stock’s steep descent. CannTrust late Thursday announced it had implemented a voluntary hold on the sale and shipment of all cannabis products “as a precaution” while Health Canada visits and reviews its Vaughan, Ont.-based manufacturing facility. It added that it placed a hold on medical sales through its customer service line and online as of 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday.
MTY Food Group Inc. (TSX:MTY). Down 26 cents to $63.15. MTY Food Group Inc. reported a profit of $19.3 million in its latest quarter, up from $16.2 million in the same period last year. The franchisor and operator of a broad range of restaurants says revenue in MTY’s second quarter totalled $130.6 million, up from $107.4 million, boosted by an increase in sales and the acquisition of Casa Grecque late last year. MTY said consolidated same-store sales were up 0.6 per cent boosted by a 1.4 per cent improvement in Canada and a 0.6 per cent gain in the U.S.
