¹ EBITDA is not a recognized measure under International Financial Reporting Standards and investors are cautioned that EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net income or cash from operating activities as an indicator of the Company's performance or cash flows. The Company's method of calculating EBITDA may differ from other companies' and may not be comparable to measures used by other companies. EBITDA less depreciation and amortization, interest and other expenses and deferred income tax expense, results in net income.
