Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA
for the Years Ended December 31, 2021, 2020 and 2019
Use of Non-IFRS Financial Measures
We monitor a number of financial performance and liquidity measures on a regular basis in order to track the progress of our business. Included in these financial performance and liquidity measures are the non- International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) measures, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow. We believe these measures provide analysts, investors and management with helpful information regarding the underlying operating performance of our business, as they remove the impact of items that we believe are not reflective of our underlying operating performance. The non-IFRS measures are used by us to evaluate our core operating performance and liquidity on a comparable basis and to make strategic decisions. The non-IFRS measures also facilitate company-to-company operating performance comparisons by backing out potential differences caused by variations such as capital structures, taxation, depreciation, capital expenditures and other non-cash items (i.e., embedded derivatives, debt extinguishment and share-based compensation) which may vary for different companies for reasons unrelated to operating performance. However, different companies may define these terms differently and accordingly comparisons might not be accurate. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow are not intended to be a substitute for any IFRS financial measure.
We have included reconciliations of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow for the years ended December 31, 2021, 2020 and 2019 above.
EBITDA excludes charges related to finance costs and finance income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA excludes charges related to finance costs and finance income, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, merger-related transaction fees, foreign currency exchange fluctuations, debt extinguishments, changes in the fair value of embedded derivative instruments and share-based compensation. Free Cash Flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less payments for capital expenditures. The following table presents a reconciliation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to its net loss for the periods indicated.
