Some investors have expressed that the change will be good and highlighted their trust in the new CEO that he can drive the momentum of the company, while some still think that it is too early to tell.

Alimentation Couche-Tard – The Canadian multinational convenience store operator based in Quebec, who’s also the parent company of Circle K, continues to expand their global reach.
