to meddle in such a culturally-important industry.
Netflix shares dropped 13 per cent on Tuesday after the
company reported a lower-than-expected round of subscriber
numbers. The company added 5.2 million users in the last
quarter, around one million fewer than predicted. The setback
comes after concerns were previously raised about a streaming
“bubble” that could reflect a change in consumer choice.
Nutrien has announced plans to acquire fellow rival Agrible
Inc. The deal is expected to be worth C$63 million. Agrible
offers real time weather updates, agronomy services, and
planning insights for sustainable decisions, according to the
company’s website.
