Transcontinental is posting higher profitability in the third quarter. As revenues increased by 1.9% in the third quarter to $500.0 million from $490.7 million at the same time last year, its net earnings rose to $44.2 million from $30.1 million.

The improvements are mostly due to the company’s recent acquisitions: Capri Packaging and Sun Media Corporations’ weekly newspapers in Quebec, as well as new agreements in two operating sectors. However, the company quoted a softer advertising market, which affected revenue growth.

Adjusted earnings rose 11% to $58.3 million from $52.5 million due to the contribution from acquisitions, new printing and distribution agreements, and company-wide optimization of its cost structure and its printing platform. >> continued

When IKEA released its 2015 catalogue, the company decided to give it the Apple treatment and spoof the popular brand. You know those apple commercials, a representative sits against a white background and the camera zooms in on a set of hands playing with the latest gadget.

So what exactly do you get with your IKEA catalogue? Well the bookbook is pre-installed with thousands of home furnishing ideas. It contains 328 hi-definition pages; it's 8mm thin, and weighs less than 400 grams. One of its top selling features: an eternal battery that promises to stay fully charged until the end of time. What Smartphone can promise that?
