David Milstead, The Globe and Mail, p. B1

Maxar Technologies Ltd., the former MacDonald Dettwiler & Associates Inc., saw its share price collapse on Wednesday on an earnings miss and a writedown that was an acknowledgment that one of its satellite businesses may never recover.

Maxar shares declined almost 45 per cent to close at $19.68, trading at record lows in the session. It is now almost 80 per cent below its 52-week high of $86.67.

On October 18, 2018, over twenty prominent executives, representing some of America’s largest corporations, pension funds and investment firms, came together to sign Commonsense Principles 2.0 . The signatories include, among other noteworthy individuals, Warren Buffett, Jamie Dimon and Larry Fink1. In an open letter, the signatories make “a commitment to apply the Commonsense Principles 2.0 in our businesses” and “hope others will do so as well.” Moreover, while recognizing that there is significant variation among public companies, and that not every principle will be applied in the same manner, the signatories expressed their intent to use the principles to guide their thinking, and encouraged others to do the same2.
