Operating expenditures for the three months ended June 30, 2018 were up 5% to $740 thousand from $703 thousand for the period ended June 30, 2017. The increase primarily relates to higher payroll.

Non-IFRS Measure

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, we are disclosing Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS financial measure, as a supplementary indicator of operating performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before, interest, income taxes, amortization, stock based compensation and currency gains or losses including derivative foreign exchange differences. We are presenting the non-IFRS financial measure in our filings because we use it internally to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and to evaluate our performance and because we believe that our current and potential investors and analysts use the measure to assess current and future operating results and to make investment decisions.  It is a non-IFRS measure, may not be comparable to other companies and it is not intended as a substitute for IFRS measures.
