Note 1:

Gross profit and operating expenses excluding non-cash items such as depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation.



Note 2:

DEQ uses an adjusted calculation of EBITDA (Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization and stock based compensation and foreign exchange impact), a non-IFRS measure, to evaluate the Company's operating performance. Securities regulators require that issuers caution readers that measures adjusted to a basis other than IFRS do not have standardized meaning under IFRS and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other companies.
