* EBITDA is a non-IFRS financial measure which does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. EBITDA provides useful information to users as it reflects the net earnings prior to the effect of non-operating expenses and one-time events such as interest, tax, depreciation and amortization, share based payments and other income. Management uses EBITDA in measuring the financial performance of the Company as this measure reflects results that are controllable by management in day-to-day operations. Management monitors EBITDA against budget and past results on a regular basis. The above EBITDA figure is calculated prior to any depreciation and amortization, foreign exchange gains or losses, interest, bad debts, impairment of long-lived assets, stock based compensation and taxes incurred by the Company.
