Companies in the news:
Rogers Communications Inc. (TSX:RCI.B). Down nine cents to $61.01. Rogers Communications Inc. is warning Canadians to be wary of text messages offering to reimburse customers for a system outage earlier this month. Screenshots shared on social media show text messages purporting to be from Rogers, asking recipients to click on a link to claim their rebate. Rogers says it never sends credit notifications by text and anyone receiving such a message should not click on the link. The 16-hour wireless system outage on April 19 was traced to a software upgrade, the company said. A Rogers email to customers the next day said it would issue a credit for that day's service on May's wireless bills, with no action required by customers. One text message posted to social media falsely says that "R0GERS WIRELESS INC." — spelled with a zero instead of the letter O — is offering a $50 credit if people click on a provided link. The $50 flat-rate figure is bogus, Rogers says, because the credit amount will vary depending on the wireless plan.
Quebecor Inc. (TSX:QBR.B). Down $1.85, or 5.2 per cent, to $33.55. The chief executive of Videotron is leaving the company at a critical time for the wireless sector and will be replaced by Pierre Karl Peladeau, who will oversee the company as head of Quebecor Inc. Appointed to the job a little over two years ago, Jean-Francois Pruneau is stepping down effective June 4 to focus on personal investment projects. His departure marks the third change of leadership at the wireless and cable company in seven years. Analyst Drew McReynolds of RBC Capital Markets called the announcement a "negative surprise," especially because the arrival of Pruneau as head of Videotron was relatively recent. Quebecor's main subsidiary is due to participate in the wireless spectrum auction next month that will be essential for the future of fifth-generation (5G) network services. In addition, Peladeau has signalled some interest in Freedom Mobile, which is owned by Shaw, in order to expand its wireless business outside of Quebec.
