Companies in the news:
Rogers Communications Inc. (TSX:RCI.B). Down 17 cents or 0.28 per cent to $60.02. Edward Rogers is seeking to assert his control over Rogers Communications Inc. The Toronto-based telecommunications giant appeared open to exploring legal options Friday as a boardroom fight escalated between the company and Edward, who was removed as Rogers chair Thursday but remains chair of the family trust that controls the company. The fight broke out after Edward unsuccessfully attempted to put Rogers' former chief financial officer Tony Staffieri into the CEO role and replace other members of the leadership team, according to media reports. Multiple reports say the plan to replace Rogers CEO Joe Natale was blocked by board members, including Edward's sisters and mother, and his attempt at shaking up the firm led to him being replaced as chair of the board on Thursday. But Edward, who remains chair of the family's Rogers Control Trust, is not giving up. In a news release late on Thursday, he announced his plan to remove John Clappison, David Peterson, Bonnie Brooks, Ellis Jacob and John MacDonald, who was named chair on Thursday, from the company's board of directors. In their place, he named Michael Cooper, Jack Cockwell, Jan Innes, Ivan Fecan and John Kerr as the new directors.

Corus Entertainment Inc. reported a fourth-quarter profit of $19.9 million, down from $30.3 million in the same quarter last year, as its revenue grew more than 10 per cent. The television and radio broadcaster says the profit amounted to 10 cents per diluted share for the quarter ended Aug. 31, down from a profit of 15 cents per diluted share a year ago. Revenue for the quarter totalled $361.3 million, up from $318.4 million in the same quarter last year for the company behind Global Television, W Network, HGTV Canada, Food Network Canada and other specialty television services, radio stations and conventional television stations.
