They touched on spend a bit in the Q3 19 call. Here's what the CFO said. Looks like Q4 and Q1 should see pressure, but it should go back to normal after.

You will also notice in the statement of cash flows about $30 million spend on acquisitions in the third quarter. The majority of this was for the Ytica acquisition Jeff mentioned earlier. We also purchased a small computer support to our growing Programmable Wireless efforts. These acquisition had a material impact to our top and bottom line results in the third quarter and expect that to be the case again in the fourth quarter.

we will be moving into new headquarters starting in the first quarter of 2019. Financially, this will have a couple of impacts. In CapEx, you should expect about $40 million of buildup costs split mostly across the next three quarters, at the operating line the fact that we'll be paying double the rent will likely push us close to break even on the operating line for Q1. Like most other businesses, we pay this seasonal cost from payroll taxes. 401(k) match payments and the like in the first quarter of the year. And the actual rent situation will put incremental pressure on operating expenses in Q1.
