Companies reporting major news:
SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. (TSX:SNC). Engineering. Up 65 cents, or 1.70 per cent, at $38.86 on 449,148 shares. The company’s weak market value may prompt an activist investor to push the engineering giant’s incoming chief executive to sell all or part of its lucrative concessions business, an analyst said Tuesday. Maxim Sytchev of Alta Corp Capital suggests SNC-Lavalin could end up facing the kind of investor-led campaign that resulted in a new chief executive and new directors at Canadian Pacific Railways (TSX:CP).
Forbes & Manhattan Coal Corp. (TSX:FMC): Miner. Up two cents, or 3.08 per cent, at 67 cents on 92,300 shares. The company says it’s buying majority stakes in an operating coal mine and an undeveloped anthracite deposit in South Africa from Rio Tinto PLC (NYSE:RIO). Toronto-based Forbes & Manhattan will pay a total of about C$52.3 million plus royalties to the Anglo-Australian mining giant, including $37.7 million when the deal closes and two followup payments.
