Bombardier Inc - BBD-b.t is a global transportation company with 80 production and engineering sites in 26 countries, and a worldwide network of service centers that operate two industry-leading businesses; Aerospace and Rail transportation.

On August 5, 2016 the company released Numbers

Bombardier reported consolidated revenues of $4.3 billion in the quarter and $8.2 billion for the first six-month period, relative to $4.6 billion and $9.0 billion for the same periods last year, explained for the most part by the planned reduction in business aircraft revenues. EBIT before special items was $106 million and $236 million respectively for the quarter and year-to-date, as margin improvements at Business Aircraft and Transportation were offset by the production ramp-up effect of the C Series, as it entered into service.

Improved free cash flow usage for the first six months of the year and the completion of the equity investment by the Government of Québec (through Investissement Québec) have resulted in pro forma liquidity of $4.9 billion as at June 30, 2016. These results place Bombardier on track to meet its full year guidance of revenues between $16.5 billion and $17.5 billion, EBIT between $200 million and $400 million, and free cash flow usage between $1.0 billion and $1.3 billion.

Barrick Gold hit by Tanzania ban on mineral concentrate

Canada’s Barrick Gold (TSX, NYSE:ABX), the world’s top bullion producer, has warned that up to 6% of it expected output for 2017 may be severely hit by a ban on mineral concentrate exports affecting its subsidiary Acacia Mining (LON:ACA), in Tanzania. The Toronto-based miner, which holds a 63.9% stake in Acacia, noted that if the subsidiary needed to revise its forecast for the current year, then Barrick would evaluate any necessary adjustments to its own 2017 outlook. Acacia, which spun off from Barrick in 2010, accounts for roughly 10% of the Canadian miner’s 2017 gold production guidance of 5.3-5.6 million ounces. Comments come on the heels of a report published Wednesday that claims Acacia has been under-reporting the amount of metal in its shipments to evade taxes.
The probe's results also led to President John Magufuli firing his mining minister and shutting the board of the mineral audit agency, which he accused of failing to supervise exports properly. Acacia, Tanzania’s largest miner was spun off from Barrick in 2010. The miner has three major gold mines in the country, which also produce copper.
