Non-IFRS Financial Measures
The Company has included certain non-IFRS financial measures in this news release including Adjusted EBITDA because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget and to develop short- and long-term operational plans. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating Adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business. Non-IFRS financial measures are not a substitute for IFRS financial measures.

Share-based compensation expenses and bad debt provision are included in General and administrative expenses in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. Measuring adjusted EBITDA is intended to provide additional information to investors and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS.
