The Chicago company that makes the familiar gold-plated Oscar statues is laying off almost 100 employees as it's bought by a Canadian firm. But some workers could be rehired.

R.S. Owens & Co. Inc. said this week in a notice to the Illinois Department of Commerce that it will lay off 95 workers on Dec. 17, when it is purchased by St. Regis Crystal of Canada. The business-data website Hoovers says R.S. Owens has about 250 employees.
