The use of any of the words "could", "expect", "believe", "will", "projected", "estimated" and similar expressions and statements relating to matters that are not historical facts are intended to identify forward-looking information and are based on the Company's current belief or assumptions as to the outcome and timing of such future events.

Non-IFRS Measures

The Company uses International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”).  EBITDA is not a measure that has any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and is therefore referred to as a non-IFRS measure.  This news release contains references to EBITDA.  This non-IFRS measure used by the Company may not be comparable to a similar measure used by other companies.  Management believes that in addition to net income, EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company’s principal business activities prior to consideration of how those activities are financed or how the results are taxed.  EBITDA is calculated as net income excluding depreciation, amortization, interest, taxes and stock based compensation.
