Brazil Judge Bars JBS's Batista Brothers From Key Shareholder Vote -- 2nd Update

SAO PAULO -- Wesley Batista, chief executive officer of meatpacking company JBS SA, won a respite from efforts by some shareholders to oust him after a Brazilian judge suspended Friday a shareholder meeting scheduled for the same day.

The 15-day suspension by federal Judge Giselle de Amaro e Franca followed a decision Thursday night by another judge barring Mr. Batista, who has admitted paying bribes to government officials to get favors for his companies, from voting on proposals that could lead to his removal.

Canadian Grocers Hit Amid Incoming Amazon Delivery Service -- Market Talk

13:10 ET - Canadian grocers fall on news that Amazon's (>> Amazon.com) grocery delivery service could be coming to Canada later this year. The WSJ reported late Thursday that Amazon Prime Now, the Seattle-based online retailer's one- and two-hour membership delivery service, will arrive in Toronto and Vancouver within the next six months. That's pushed Loblaw's (>> Loblaw Companies Ltd), Canada's biggest grocer, to a midday decline of 3.1%, while Empire (EMP.A.T), which owns Sobeys and Safeway, is down 4.3%. TSX's consumer staples group is also one of the market's biggest decliners of the day, falling 1.1%. ([email protected]; @itsdgc)
