    --------------------------------
    (1) EBITDA is not a recognized measure under Canadian generally accepted
        accounting principles 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, net and Income tax, results in Net income.
