This press release includes references to "net asset value per share ("NAV per share")," a financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) or International IFRS. NAV per share is calculated as the value of total assets less the value of total liabilities divided by the total number of common shares outstanding as at a specific date. Investors are cautioned that this non-GAAP measure should not be construed as an alternative to the measurement calculated in accordance with IFRS as, given its non-standardized meaning; it is unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.
