Dorel warns US tariffs could impact its business result in price increases

first_imgMONTREAL – Manufacturer Dorel Industries Inc. warns that proposed tariffs in the U.S. would have a significant impact on all three of its major business lines and could result in higher prices for consumers.The bicycle, furniture and baby ware maker, which manufacturers some of its goods in low-cost China, says the proposed U.S. tariffs on imports from that country is creating business uncertainties for the company and its competitors, adding that higher costs will ultimately be passed on to consumers.The Montreal-based company slipped into a loss in its second quarter even as its children’s division in the United States overcame the earlier impact of the closure of Toys “R” Us stores to post its best year-over-year quarterly growth in nine years.The company, which reports in U.S. dollars, had a net loss for the quarter ended June 30 amounting to $14.8 million, or 46 cents per share, compared to an income of $11.4 million, or 35 cents per share in the second quarter of 2017.The second-quarter results included higher tax rates than in the year-ago quarter and expenses related to restructuring and a number of other one-time items.On an adjusted basis, however, the company reported an income of 39 cents per share, beating analyst expectations of 27 cents per share, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.Revenue rose two per cent to $623.2 million as seven per cent growth in its sports segment offset a more modest decline in sales in its home and juvenile segments.Positive results in the company’s U.S. juvenile division were offset by an overall disappointing quarter, largely due to difficulty implementing a warehouse management system in Europe that caused it to miss sales and its Chilean segment in the midst of a turnaround.last_img read more

Oil prices Alberta election call cloud Stampede chuckwagon auction expectations

first_imgThe current NDP government introduced controversial oil production curtailments in January and is investing in crude-by-rail capacity to fill a shortfall in export pipeline room.Bensmiller also took the prize for the highest tarp price of $130,000 last year as a total of $3.2 million was bid at the auction.“I’m hoping with the economy the way it is, if we stay close to what it was last year or even the average comes up a bit as a whole, the driver group will be pretty excited about that,” he said in an interview.“I’ve talked to a few (prospective sponsors) and they expressed interest in me so I’m not really on pins and needles.”The top money bid last year came from Versatile Energy Services, Ltd., a private oilfield services company based in the resort town of Sylvan Lake in central Alberta.Versatile president Kent Stormoen said he plans to be at the event tonight but declined to make any predictions for results given the province’s current uncertain times. “The industry still isn’t rolling like we expect it to but (the sponsorship) did help with the exposure of our company,” he said.“I think there’s a lot of uncertainty with the provincial election coming now and the new federal budget that’s come out.”Stampede spokeswoman Kristina Barnes said Wednesday the number of bidders who have pre-registered for the auction is at more than 130, a bit behind last year’s pace while adding many bidders register just before the event.The record year for overall tarp auction results came in 2012 when bidders pledged just over $4 million, including the highest bid of $300,000 by oilfield services firm Tervita Corp. At the time, oil prices were hovering above US$100 per barrel versus recent prices of around US$60 per barrel. CALGARY, A.B. – Chuckwagon drivers and sponsors are hoping for the best as clouds of political and energy industry uncertainty gather ahead of the Calgary Stampede canvas auction tonight.The success of the annual event is considered a bellwether for the Calgary-based oil and gas industry, as many of the sponsors who pay to have their company names on the 36 rigs competing in the 10-day July tribute to cowboy culture are energy industry players.Champion driver Kurt Bensmiller, who won the chuckwagon derby for the fourth time in five years in 2018, says the calling of an Alberta election on Tuesday creates more uncertainty for an economy battered by recent commodity price volatility and slowing oilfield activity.center_img About 80 percent of the canvas auction proceeds go to the drivers and the rest is used for prize money, safety and other chuckwagon initiatives.last_img read more

Chinese navy launches 2 new guided missile destroyers

While it has one aircraft carrier, the Liaoning which was commissioned in 2012, its second indigenously built aircraft carrier is currently undergoing trials and a third one is being built at a feverish pace. China plans to acquire about five to six aircraft carriers in the coming years, according to reports in the official media.

The Chinese navy for the first time in its history has logistic bases in Djibouti in the Indian Ocean and is developing Pakistan’s Gwadar port in the Arabian Sea.

Fake Police Officer Arrested in Casablanca

first_imgCasablanca- According to news outlet, the police arrested a man in Casablanca’s Ain Chock neighborhood for impersonating a police officer. The arrested man had allegedly stopped a car and requested the driver to hand him his driving license before attempting to rob him off his phone and flee away. The police found that the 22-year-old had already been arrested for similar infringements. During police interrogations, the fake police officer quickly admitted the charges held against him. The accused will be prosecuted for attempted theft and police impersonation. Insecurity in CasablancaNew kind crimes have started surfacing in the economic city, ranging from armed bank robbery to police impersonation. However, phone robbery is the most frequent among all street crimes in the kingdom, and tensions between robbers and victims sometimes leads to serious injuries or even murder. The lack of police authority in zones where robbery and other sorts of crimes are rampant is one factor among many that account for the shocking pervasiveness of these phenomena. “I was stopped by a woman who seemed not in shape the other day,” a red taxi driver shared with me, “She said she was forced into a car by someone near Ai Diab beach in Casablanca. The man threatened to harm her if she did not hand him all valuable things she had on her. When the guy saw that she had a bank car, he asked her to give him her password under the threat of killing her if she lied.” “He said he would take her to the nearest bank agency to check the accuracy of the password before he released her,” the taxi driver continued, “Miraculously, she managed to convince him that she wasn’t lying and that there wasn’t much money in her bank account. Well, she actually lied! Her bank account contained everything she and her husband had been saving for their children’s education. The woman had heart issues, and I could see the effect of that shocking incident on her. She could barely breathe,” he added. © Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.
