Companies in the news:
AtkinsRéalis. (TSX:ATRL). Construction. Up $3.31, or 8.19 per cent, to $43.75. AtkinsRéalis more than doubled its profit last quarter and raised its financial forecast for the year as the company shifts to growth and rounds out its transition to a pure-play engineering firm. The company formerly known as SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. — whose massive, overbudget construction projects several years ago wound up draining coffers and pushing a round of cuts — notched a record backlog in its third quarter. The figure hit $12.5 billion as of Sept. 30, driven higher by government contracts for energy and transportation projects in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.
Sleep Country Canada Holdings Inc. (TSX:ZZZ). Retail. Up 47 cents, or 2.06 per cent, to $23.29. Sleep Country Canada Holdings Inc. reported its third-quarter profit fell compared with a year ago as it saw pockets of softness in consumer demand, particularly on larger ticket items. Sleep Country chief executive Stewart Schaefer said the company was pleased with the performance amid an evolving environment, as high interest rates and inflation continue to affect consumer confidence. The mattress retailer said its net income attributable to the company amounted to $24.7 million for the quarter, down from $28.9 million in the same quarter last year.
