In company news, United States-based Tilt Holdings Inc. (TILT) dropped five cents to 58 cents on 854,500 shares after releasing its fourth quarter and full-year 2019 results. The company's revenue slipped to $33.4-million (U.S.) in Q4 2019, down from $46.1-million (U.S.) in Q3 2019. Tilt attributed much of the drop to the "vape crisis," which killed 68 people in the United States and peaked in September and October, with media coverage lasting throughout the fourth quarter.
