Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release makes reference to certain non-GAAP financial measures. These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Rather, these measures are provided as additional information to complement IFRS financial measures by providing further understanding of QYOU Media's results of operations from management's perspective. QYOU Media's definitions of non-GAAP measures used in this press release may not be the same as the definitions for such measures used by other companies in their reporting. Non-GAAP measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of QYOU Media's financial information reported under IFRS. QYOU Media uses non-GAAP financial measures, including "adjusted net loss", to provide investors with supplemental measures of its operating performance and to eliminate items that have less bearing on operating performance or operating conditions, and thus highlight trends in its core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures. QYOU Media defines "adjusted net loss" as the company net loss, less non-cash related expenses of $412,843 (stock based compensation of $142,149, foreign exchange of $264,217 and depreciation of $6,477).
QYOU Media believes that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-GAAP financial measures in the evaluation of issuers. QYOU Media's management also uses non-GAAP financial measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period.
