Non-IFRS Financial Measures
In addition to disclosing results in accordance with IFRS as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB"), theScore also provides supplementary non-IFRS financial measures as a method of evaluating the Company's performance. theScore utilizes earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") to measure operating performance. theScore's definition of EBITDA excludes depreciation and amortization, finance income, income taxes, and acquisition costs which in theScore's view do not adequately reflect its core operating results. EBITDA is used in the determination of short-term incentive compensation for all senior management personnel. EBITDA is not a measure of performance under IFRS and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net and comprehensive income or loss prepared in accordance with IFRS or as a measure of operating performance or profitability. EBITDA does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and is not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.
