Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ending June 30, 2015, was ($797,000) compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $610,000 in the same period last year.

"The second quarter was transformational for Symbility with our revenue growth shifting internationally.

"With our revenue and sales opportunities now equally distributed between Canada, the USA and our International operations, in late Q2 we realigned our resources to mirror the geographic footprint of our revenue, with an annual cash cost savings of approximately $2.0 million. Now that our infrastructure and pipeline are properly aligned, we look forward to a successful second half of the year and a number of new contracts to set up a very positive 2016."

1 Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure and is calculated as earnings before interest income, taxes, depreciation and amortization, impairment losses, stock-based compensation, and other non-recurring gains or losses including transaction costs related to acquisition. Management believes Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure that facilitates period-to-period operating comparisons. Adjusted EBITDA does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and is not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net earnings (loss) prepared in accordance with IFRS as issued by IASB. All other financial measures referenced herein have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards unless stated otherwise.
