*Non-IFRS measure. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) should not be construed as alternatives to comprehensive loss or income determined in accordance with IFRS. EBITDA does not have any standardized meaning under IFRS and, therefore, may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The Company defines EBITDA as IFRS net loss excluding interest expense, depreciation and amortization expense. The Company believes that EBITDA is a meaningful financial metric as it measures cash generated from operations which the Company can use to fund working capital requirements, service future interest and principal debt repayments and fund future growth initiatives.
