Canopy Growth Corp. (WEED-T) reported a loss in its latest quarter as its revenue fell compared with a year ago. The cannabis company says its net loss amounted to $231.9-million or 47 cents per share for the quarter ended Sept. 30. The expectation was for a loss of 22 cents per share, according to S&P Capital IQ.

Canopy says the bigger loss was primarily due to non-cash fair value changes and an increase in asset impairment and restructuring costs, partially offset by improved margins.

Net revenue for the three-month period amounted to $117.9-million, down from $131.4-million in the same quarter last year. The expectation was for revenue to come in at $121.4-million.

Canopy says the drop in revenue was due to increased competition in the Canadian adult-use cannabis market, the sale of C3 Cannabinoid Compound Company GmbH and softer performance from This Works, offset by growth at BioSteel.

Last month, Canopy announced a plan to speed up its foray into the U.S. market with a new U.S.-domiciled company meant to hold its cannabis investments made in the United States.
