Some of the bright spots the purchase of nutrition bar company RX Bar, and restructuring at its Nigerian operation.

It’s shaping up to be a bad day for Blue Apron (APRN). The meal kit company just reported quarterly revenue slid 25% from last year as fewer customers signed up.

CBS (CBS) is out with earnings after the closing bell and embattled CEO Les Moonves is expected to be on the earnings call. CBS has hired two of the nation’s most powerful law firms to investigate Moonves. Former federal prosecutor and SEC chair Mary Jo White will be part of the team looking into the allegations of sexual misconduct against Les Moonves. Moonves denies the claims and says he never misused his position to harm anyone’s career.
