Financial Statements & Management’s Discussion and Analysis

 

This news release should be read in conjunction with Everyday People’s consolidated financial statements and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis” report for the three months ended March 31, 2024, which have been posted under the Company’s profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca.

 

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

 

This news release makes reference to certain non-IFRS financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EBTDA.

 

“Adjusted EBITDA” is not a recognized measure under IFRS and does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. “EBITDA” means earnings before finance and interest costs, provision for income tax and amortization and depreciation expenses. “Adjusted EBITDA” is calculated as adding back the share-based compensation, depreciation and amortization expenses,, other expenses (income) and other non-operating expenses (income) management considers not directly related to operational performance of the period presented.

 

“Adjusted EBTDA” is not a recognized measure under IFRS and does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and is therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. “EBTDA” means earnings before finance excluding interest costs, provision for income tax and amortization and depreciation expenses. “Adjusted EBTDA” is calculated as adding back the share-based compensation, depreciation and amortization expenses,, other expenses (income) and other non-operating expenses (income), and excludes interest costs in the calculation, management considers not directly related to operational performance of the period presented.

 

Adjusted EBITDA and EBTDA, are used as non-IFRS financial measures to provide investors with a supplemental measure of the Company’s operating performance and thus highlight trends in its core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures. The Company believes that securities analysts, investors, and other interested parties frequently use non-IFRS financial measures in the evaluation of issuers. The Company’s management also uses non-IFRS financial measures to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, prepare annual operating budgets and assess the Company’s ability to meet its capital expenditure and working capital requirements.

 

Non-IFRS financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for an analysis of the Company’s results under IFRS. There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-IFRS financial measures versus their nearest IFRS equivalents. Investors are encouraged to review the consolidated financial statements as at and for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and March 31, 2023, and disclosures in their entirety and are cautioned not to put undue reliance on any non-IFRS financial measure and view it in conjunction with the most comparable IFRS financial measures. In evaluating these non-IFRS financial measures, please be aware that in the future the Company will continue to have the adjustment similar to those adjusted in the presented period.
