Adjusted EBITDA and Non-IFRS Financial Measures
This MD&A includes certain measures which are not defined terms in accordance with IFRS such as Adjusted EBITDA. The Term « Adjusted EBITDA » refers to net income (loss) after adjusting for interest, taxes, depreciation and costs relating to acquisitions and their integration.
The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful supplemental information as it provides an indication of the results generated by the company’s main business activities prior to taking into consideration how those activities are financed and taxed and prior to taking into consideration depreciation and particularly the costs of integration of acquisitions.
Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure used by Management and the Company’s Board of Directors (« Board ») to understand and evaluate the company’s operating performance, to prepare annual budgets, and to help develop Operating Plans. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance under IFRS and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net and comprehensive income (loss) prepared in accordance with IFRS or as a measure of operating performance or profitability.
Adjusted EBITDA does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and is not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.
