In this press release Horizon North uses non-GAAP measures including "EBITDA", calculated as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, share based compensation, bargain purchase gain and gain/loss on disposal of property, plant and equipment, "Adjusted EBITDA", calculated as EBITDA before transaction costs, "EBITDA as a % of revenue", calculated as EBITDA divided by revenue, "Adjusted Earnings Per Share", calculated as net earnings less the bargain purchase gain divided by the weighted average number of shares outstanding, and "Free Cash Flow", calculated as net cash flows from (used in) operating activities, less changes in non-cash working capital for investing activities, capital expenditures, payments for lease liabilities and finance costs, to provide investors with supplemental measures of Horizon North's operating performance and thus highlight trends in its core businesses that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures. Horizon North also believes that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-GAAP measures in the evaluation of issuers. Horizon North's management also uses non-GAAP measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, to prepare annual operating budgets, and to determine components of management compensation.
Certain measures in this press release do not have any standardized meaning as prescribed by generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and, therefore, are considered non-GAAP measures. These measures are regularly reviewed by the Chief Operating Decision Maker and provide investors with an alternative method for assessing the Corporation's operating results in a manner that is focused on the performance of the Corporation's ongoing operations and to provide a more consistent basis for comparison between periods. These measures should not be construed as alternatives to net earnings and total comprehensive income determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of the Corporation's performance. The method of calculating these measures may differ from other entities and accordingly, may not be comparable to measures used by other entities. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their nearest measure under GAAP please refer to "Reconciliation of non-GAAP measures" in the MD&A.
Certain statements contained in this press release may constitute forward-looking information within the meaning of securities laws. Forward-looking information may relate to Horizon North's future outlook and anticipated events, business, operations, financial performance, financial condition or results and, in some cases, can be identified by terminology such as "continue"; "forecast"; "may"; "will"; "project"; "could"; "should"; "expect"; "plan"; "anticipate"; "believe"; "outlook"; "target"; "intend"; "estimate"; "predict"; "might"; "potential"; "continue"; "foresee"; "ensure" or other similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts. In particular, statements regarding Horizon North's future operating results and economic performance and its objectives and strategies are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on certain factors and assumptions, including expected growth, results of operations, performance and business prospects and opportunities regarding Horizon North, which Horizon North believes are reasonable as of the current date. While management considers these assumptions to be reasonable based on information currently available to Horizon North, they may prove to be incorrect. Forward-looking information is also subject to certain factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from what Horizon North currently expects.
The reader should not place undue importance on forward-looking information and should not rely upon this information as of any other date. While management may elect to, Horizon North is under no obligation and does not undertake to update or alter this information at any time, except as may be required by law.
