USE OF NON-IFRS MEASURES

 

Adjusted EBITDA

 

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 that 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 Company 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 is 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:
