Companies reporting major news:

Celestica Inc. (TSX:CLS). Computer hardware. Up 19 cents, or 1.58 per cent, to $12.25 on 395,007 shares. The company says it had US$47.1 million of adjusted net earnings in the first quarter, or US$37.3 million under standard accounting — both up substantially from the same time last year despite soft demand for some of its manufacturing services. The adjusted earnings amounted to 26 cents per share — above the high end of Celestica's guidance and up from 16 cents per share in the first quarter of 2013.

Mega Brands Inc. (TSX:MB). Toy manufacturer. Unchanged at $17.74 on 238,564 shares. The company shareholders overwhelmingly approved a US$460-million friendly takeover of Canada's only public toy company by American giant Mattel. A total of 99.96 per cent of Mega Brands shareholders who voted endorsed the deal, well in excess of the two-thirds requirement.

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. (TSX:VRX). Drug manufacturers. Down $4.13, or 2.76 per cent, to $145.25 on 694,613 shares. The company says three of its directors will not stand for re-election this year as it pursues the acquisition of Botox maker Allergan. The departures come after Valeant teamed with activist investor Bill Ackman to make a hostile takeover offer for Allergan (NYSE:AGN), which has since announced it has adopted a shareholder rights plan that will allow its board time to consider alternatives and potentially block the bid.
