Non-IFRS Measures

This news release includes certain measures that have not been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) such as Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin which are used to evaluate the Company’s operating performance as a complement to results provided in accordance with IFRS.  The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are useful supplemental information as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company’s main business activities prior to taking into consideration how those activities are financed and taxed and also prior to taking into consideration asset depreciation and the other items listed below.

The term “Adjusted EBITDA” refers to net income (loss) before adjusting for loss from discontinued operation, share-based payment expense, depreciation and amortization, impairment charge on non-financial assets, impairment of loan receivable, lease-exit charges, net, earn-out expense (recovery), foreign exchange gain (loss), finance income, finance costs, and income taxes.  The loss from discontinued operation represents the results of operations of the Healthcare business, as separate segment of the Company, which was spun off on January 25, 2016 and which have been excluded from Adjusted EBITDA because the Company is no longer in the Healthcare business and the Healthcare business’s current and historical results do not represent the operating performance of the Company for the quarter ended March 31, 2016. The Adjusted EBITDA for the comparative period in 2015 has also been adjusted accordingly.  The impairment of loan receivable has been excluded from Adjusted EBITDA because the loan advanced to the Healthcare business is an interim loan until such time the Healthcare business secures financing and does not represent the operating performance of the Company for the quarter ended March 31, 2016.  “Adjusted EBITDA margin” refers to the percentage that Adjusted EBITDA for any period represents as a portion of total revenue for that period.

The term Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are not measures recognized by IFRS and do not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS.  Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.  Investors are cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin should not be construed as an alternative to net income (loss) as determined in accordance with IFRS.
