(1) Adjusted EBITDA is defined 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 income (loss) prepared in
    accordance with IFRS as issued by the IASB.

(2) In Canadian dollars, rounded to the nearest cent.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
