As well, shares of High Liner Foods Incorporated (TSX:HLF) slipped 19% to $7.09 as the frozen seafood company said financial results for its second quarter of 2018 reflect continued challenges in the business related to soft sales volume, a shift in product mix from higher margin value-added products to lower margin commodity products, raw material cost increases not fully passed along to customers and inefficiencies in its supply chain.

Eguana Technologies Inc. (TSXV:EGT), meanwhile, reported that July orders have exceeded $3 million, eclipsing its first two fiscal quarter results of $2.4 million, with an additional $3 million expected for the balance of the fiscal year. Eguana Technologies stock moved up 8% to $0.205 following the announcement.

Finally, Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSXV:PAT) shares rose 4% to $1.65 after the concealed weapons detection system provider announced that it has reached an agreement in principle with a major international defense contractor pursuant to which Patriot One will receive funding for the further development and integration of its PATSCAN CMR covert weapon detection system technology.
