Russel Metals Agrees to Acquire Boyd Metals

Metals distribution company Russel Metals Inc. on Thursday said it agreed to acquire a group of companies that operate as Boyd Metals in a $110 million deal, subject to closing adjustments.

Boyd has five service centers in Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma City and Texas. Its product mix includes carbon steel products, stainless steel, aluminum and other related industrial products, Russel said, adding it also offers value-added processing services.

"For the 12 months ended Sept. 30, 2021, Boyd generated revenues of $244 million," Russel said.

The deal is expected to close in the fourth quarter, Russel said.

Canada Strips Military of Powers to Investigate Sexual Misconduct

Canada on Thursday said all allegations of sexual misconduct within the country's armed forces would now be investigated and prosecuted by civilian authorities, citing skepticism among soldiers and the public about the military's ability to police itself.

Policy analysts say this marks a rare move among major Western democracies to strip certain responsibilities away from their own military's justice system. The decision is also the first significant response from the country's Liberal government to a series of sexual-misconduct allegations in the armed forces that sparked a public outcry and a probe by parliamentarians. The uproar also threatened to undermine Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his high-profile pledge to defend women's rights and fight harassment in the workplace.

Academics who study sexual misconduct in the military had argued Canada lagged behind the U.S. and other jurisdictions in addressing sexual-misconduct complaints in the military, in part because legislative armed-services oversight is among the weakest relative to other major Western democracies.

Anita Anand, named Canada's defense minister last week, said the move would help the armed forces "live up to its stated values and the expectations of Canadians," and was recommended by a former Supreme Court of Canada justice the government appointed this year to investigate sexual misconduct in the military. Ms. Anand is a lawyer and was a law professor before entering politics in 2019.

Market Talk:

Canada Bank Regulator Decision Could Spur Buybacks, Dividends

A decision by Canada's Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions to allow Canada's banks to increase dividends and resume share buybacks could unleash a large wave of shareholder returns, Barclays analyst John Aiken says. Canada's banks have been accruing capital well beyond their regulatory minimums since March 2020. The banking regulator imposed capital restrictions on the banks to ensure they had enough capital to withstand possible financial shocks caused by the pandemic. With the restrictions now gone "Canadian large cap banks could go beyond their usual conservative stance," Aiken says.
