Note: EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP/IFRS figures. “EBITDA” represents net income plus income tax, finance expense and depreciation. “Adjusted EBITDA” represents EBITDA plus share-based compensation and one-time costs. “Adjusted Net Income” represents net income plus one-time finance expenses.
The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful additional information to management, the board and investors as it provides an indication of the operational results generated by its business activities prior to taking into consideration how those activities are financed and taxed and also prior to taking into consideration asset depreciation and amortization and it excludes items that could affect the comparability of our operational results and could potentially alter the trends analysis in business performance. Excluding these items does not necessarily imply they are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual. Adjusted EBITDA is also used by some investors and analysts for valuing a company. Investors are cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to operating earnings or net earnings determined in accordance with IFRS as an indicator of the Company’s financial performance or as a measure of the Company’s liquidity and cash flows. Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account the impact of working capital changes, capital expenditures, debt principal reductions and other sources and uses of cash, which are disclosed in the consolidated statements of cash flows.
Non-GAAP financial measures do not have standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Specific items may only be relevant in certain periods. For reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures please refer to the Company’s Management Discussion and Analysis for the period ended March 31, 2019.
The financial statements, notes to the financial statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019 are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
In addition, the Company announces that its Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Randy Clifford, has resigned to pursue other opportunities. The directors of the Company have appointed Mr. Steve Kang as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer. The Company wishes Mr. Clifford success in his future endeavours.
“Mr. Kang has the necessary public market experience and expertise to assist and guide Datametrex to the next level,” stated Ms. Janeen Stodulski, a director and chair of the Audit Committee.
