USE OF NON-IFRS MEASURES
Management uses Adjusted earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and
amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA“) as a key financial metric to evaluate ADCORE’s
operating performance and for planning and forecasting future business operations.
Adjusted EBITDA excludes significant items which are non-operating in nature in
order to evaluate ADCORE’s core operating performance against prior periods.
Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should
be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for net earnings, overall change
in cash or liquidity of the business as a whole. Management believes the use of
Adjusted EBITDA allows investors and analysts to understand the results of the
continuing operations of the Corporation and its subsidiary, by excluding certain
items that have a disproportionate impact on ADCORE’s results for a particular
period. Management’s method of determining non-GAAP financial measures are
evaluated periodically and may differ from other companies’ methods and therefore
may not be comparable to those used by other companies.
The following table presents the adjusted EBITDA for the periods ended:
