(1) EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Number for comparative periods were revised to exclude SRED credit tax, variation on exchange, and bank charges in EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as EBITDA to which the Company adds stock-based compensation including the grant of stock options, restricted shares units, and restricted share awards as these expenses do not result in any use of operating cash flows by the Company, severance payments, impairment loss on goodwill, write-off of intangible assets, change in fair value of investment in shares, expenses related to acquisition or disposal of business, and loss on extinction of debt and equity components of convertible debentures, which are extraordinary and non-recurrent expenses, and Board remuneration, which is paid in shares units. EBITDA and non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA are provided as a supplementary earning measure to assist readers in determining the ability of ENGAGEMENT LABS INC. to generate cash from operations and to cover financial charges. They are also widely used for business valuation purposes. These measures do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.

Corporate Update

The Company announced on November 1, 2021 that the completion of its previously announced merger proposal with DGTL Holdings Inc., if approved by shareholders, might not be completed before year-end due to a delay in DGTL's year-end financial filing which delayed its ability to raise financing for the transaction.

Since that time DGTL has issued its year end Audit and its Q1 2022 results and has reaffirmed its desire to close the transaction with the Company. Toward this end, DGTL has lowered the financing condition for closing the acquisition to $1m CAD and indicated it expects to close the financing in early December. Based on its expectations that all necessary conditions will be met to allow the Plan of Arrangement to be approved, the Company is preparing to set a meeting date for shareholders to vote on the proposed merger in early February. The merger is expected to close in Q1 2022.
