* EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure – earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA plus stock-based compensation, non-recurring transaction and restructuring expenses. EBITDA is not a defined term under IFRS nor does it have a standard, agreed upon meaning. Accordingly, TIO’s EBITDA may not be directly comparable to EBITDA reported by other issuers. TIO management had determined EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure in evaluating TIO’s performance as it provides investors with an indication of cash available for debt service, working capital needs and capital expenditures.
