Companies in the news:
Bombardier Inc. — Bombardier Inc. shares fell to a new low Tuesday after Spirit AeroSystems said some closing conditions on its planned acquisition of Bombardier’s aerostructures business remain unmet, injecting a degree of uncertainty into the deal. The US$500-million sale of facilities in Belfast and Morocco forms a key part of Bombardier’s shift from a commercial plane-and-train maker to a pure-play manufacturer of private jets. The deal is also critical to buoying the Montreal-based company’s balance sheet, which is currently weighed down by more than US$9 billion in debt. Spirit says the agreement will automatically terminate if conditions are not satisfied by Oct. 31, according to filings it submitted Tuesday to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
BlackBerry Ltd. (TSX:BB). Up 24 cents, or 3.8 per cent to $6.57. BlackBerry Ltd. and Telus Corp. say Edmonton’s police service has signed on to become a customer for a secure emergency preparedness system that’s used by the U.S. government. They didn’t disclose financial details of their deal with Edmonton Police Service. BlackBerry acquired AtHoc four years ago as it was strategically shifting emphasis from smartphones towards secure communications for organizations. It says AtHoc is used by organizations around the world, including coverage for U.S. federal departments and agencies.
Inter Pipeline Ltd. (TSX:IPL). Up 27 cents or two per cent to $13.54. A year after putting its European bulk liquid storage business on the block, Inter Pipeline Ltd. has signed a deal to sell most of it to the Madrid-based CLH Group for $715 million. The sale includes all of the Calgary-based company’s bulk liquid storage and handling assets in the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Netherlands and Germany. CLH chairman Jose Luis Lopez de Silanes said the deal will make the company the industry leader in Europe with operations in eight countries. The purchase includes 11 U.K. terminals plus two in Germany and one terminal in each of Ireland and the Netherlands with a combined storage capacity of about 18 million barrels.
Dye & Durham Ltd. (TSX:DND). Down 18 cents to $22.93. Cloud software company Dye & Durham Ltd. of Toronto has signed a deal to buy U.K.-based rival Property Information Exchange Ltd. for $52.9 million.
