The company slowed the flow of red ink last quarter, but still lost $16.6 million as revenue slipped due to store closures, harsh winter conditions and lower housing construction. It said the loss amounted to 14 cents per share, compared with a loss of $36.1 million or 30 cents per share a year ago.

Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. (TSX:VRX). Health care. Down 30.5 cents, or 0.22 per cent, to $141.40 on 415,231 shares.
