Non-GAAP measures

EBITDA is a key measure used by management to evaluate the Company's performance. Management believes that EBITDA is useful as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company's business activities prior to taking into consideration how those activities are financed and taxed and also prior to taking into consideration asset depreciation and other non-cash expenditures. EBITDA is not a recognized measure under Canadian GAAP, and accordingly, investors are cautioned that EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings or loss determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of the financial performance of the Company or as a measure of the Company's liquidity and cash flows. EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The schedule below details how Monexa reconciles its net loss per GAAP to EBITDA for the most recent four quarters. Note: for the quarter ended December 31, the impact of realized and unrealized foreign exchange gains and loss are excluded.
