1Non-GAAP Financial Measures
EBITDA is a supplemental measure of performance not defined by International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and, therefore, it does not have any standardized meaning under IFRS. Therefore, the measure is unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The reconciliation of EBITDA to net income and the reason why we use this measure can be found in Management's Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016, under section 19 titled "Non-GAAP and additional GAAP measures".
