Non-IFRS Financial Measures
The terms “EBITDA” (net income or loss excluding net finance income or expense, income tax or recovery, depreciation, and amortization) and “Adjusted EBITDA” (which is calculated by the Company by adjusting EBITDA to exclude share-based payments, fair value loss or gain on re-measurement of digital assets, gain (loss) on foreign exchange, and costs associated with one-time transactions) are not recognized measures nor do they have standardized meanings under International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”). There is no standardized measure of “EBITDA” or “Adjusted EBITDA” under IFRS and consequently, TAAL’s method of calculating this measure may differ from methods used by other companies and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. A reconciliation of “Adjusted EBITDA” to Net Loss can be found in the MD&A.
