(1) Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, one-time acquisition costs, and non-cash items such as stock compensation expense and IFRS fair value adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA is not a defined performance measure under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) but it is used by Management to assess the performance of the Company and its segments.

(2) Free cash flow less maintenance capex is not an IFRS measure. Maintenance capital expenditures are those required to maintain the operations of the Company at its current level of operations.

Management is maintaining a positive outlook for the Company and its two subsidiaries, Blaze King and Unicast. Management believes that the Company is better positioned for future growth now that a second company has been added to the corporate family, as this diversity adds strength and resilience to operations. Management believes that continuing to follow a balanced and disciplined acquisition approach is the best path to generating shareholder value.

Management remains confident in its strategic and operational plans and in its seasoned leadership. The Company is committed to enhancing customer service in both subsidiaries and growing the sales teams to accommodate a plan of steady growth. The Company continues to develop and expand its network of referral sources that regularly present it with potential acquisitions. The Company also independently assesses certain markets and regions to identify potential targets and believes that its disciplined approach to acquisitions is largely responsible for the success to date. While the deal flow brought to the Company is considered strong, there can be no assurance target companies meeting management's standards will be identified.
