According to the company, the higher loss was due to an increase in operating expenses related to continued growth, expansion of international teams, and costs related to financing and mergers-and-acquisitions activity. 

“Looking ahead, we remain committed to pursuing global growth opportunities and will be disciplined in deploying capital, particularly in the United States and Europe, where we believe we have multiple paths for value creation," said President and CEO Brendan Kennedy in a statement.
