Companies in the news:
SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. (TSX:SNC). Down 11 cents to $23.98. SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. is pushing back its decision on whether to opt for a trial by jury or by judge alone in a corruption case that has tripped up the engineering giant and ensnared it in a political controversy for months. Defence lawyer Francois Fontaine told the Court of Quebec he needs more time. Last week a Quebec judge ruled there is enough evidence to send SNC-Lavalin to trial over charges of fraud and corruption, prompting a further tumble in the beleaguered firm’s share price.
