exciting announcements over the coming months to drive shareholder value.”
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, the 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.
