Cogeco Cable’s third-quarter profit dropped to $35.5 million, or 72 cents per diluted share, largely because of an impairment charge as well as what it said were temporarily reduced margins at two recent acquisitions. The results were down from $48.1 million, or 98 cents per diluted share, in the same quarter last year.

Corus reported a net loss of $30.3 million or 36 cents per share in its third quarter compared with a net profit of $89.9 million or $1.07 per share, in the comparable year-earlier period. Adjusted net income was $41.6 million or 49 cents per share, missing analysts estimates by two cents as revenue also fell short of expectations.
BCE Inc. (TSX:BCE). Communication services. Up 11 cents, or 0.23 per cent, to $48.39 on 1.9 million shares. The company’s Bell Media subsidiary is cutting 91 employees from its production staff as it makes big changes to programming, with the brunt of the losses hitting music channels Much, MTV and M3. The layoffs are part of a previously announced plan for Bell Media to cut 120 jobs from its Toronto workforce due to “financial pressure” in advertising and subscription TV services.
