In order to help investors understand the Company's current results and future prospects, this new release includes "forward-looking information" and "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of applicable Canadian and United States federal securities legislation. Management refers to these types of statements collectively, as "forward-looking information". Forward-looking information includes, but is not limited to: information with respect to our objectives, strategies, operations and financial results, competition; initiatives to grow revenue or reduce retention payments and other costs and the quotation from Mr. Reykdal, CEO.
Forward-looking information can generally be identified by the use of words such as "plans", "expects", or "does not expect", "is expected", "budget", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "anticipates", or "does not anticipate", or "believes" or variations of such words and phrases. They may also be identified by statements that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might", or "will be taken", "occur", or "be achieved".
Forward-looking information is subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from those expressed or implied. These risks and uncertainties may include (but are not limited to) changes in economic and political conditions, legislative or regulatory developments, technological developments, third party arrangements, competition, litigation, market conditions, the availability of alternative transactions, shareholder, legal, regulatory and court approvals and third party consents and other factors described under the heading "Risks and Uncertainties" in our annual MD&A filed on www.sedar.com and under the heading "Risk Factors" in our annual report on Form 20-F filed with the SEC in the United States.

Non GAAP Measures
Throughout this news release, terms that are not specifically defined under U.S. GAAP are referenced and used. These non-U.S. GAAP measures may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These non-U.S. GAAP measures are presented because the Company believes that they provide investors with additional insight into the Company's financial results. The non-U.S. GAAP measures mentioned in this news release, along with the way in which management calculates them, are defined below.
Same Branch Revenue is used to explain changes in total revenue by
comparing the average revenue for a particular group of branches in a
current period to that same particular group of branches in a prior
period, excluding income from centralized collections. Average revenue
is defined as revenue for the period divided by the number of branches.
EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are used as a measure of cash income. EBITDA
is calculated as net income (loss) and comprehensive income (loss)
before interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation of property
and equipment and amortization of intangible assets. Based on EBITDA,
the effects of other items and/or non-cash expenses are removed to
calculate Adjusted EBITDA. Please refer to the section entitled "EBITDA
and Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation" for a reconciliation of EBITDA and
Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) and comprehensive income (loss).
The interest component of retention payments line item presented on the Adjusted EBITDA reconciliation is intended to help investors to determine the Company's EBITDA under a scenario where funds provided by third-party lenders to lend to consumers were considered to be debt financing to the Company. The amount is calculated based on the total funds provided by third-party lenders multiplied by a rate of 17.5% per annum.
- Working Capital is calculated as current assets less current liabilities.
