Non-IFRS Financial Measures

Our management and supervisory boards utilize both IFRS and non-IFRS measures in a number of ways, including to facilitate the determination of our allocation of resources, to measure our performance against budgeted and forecasted financial plans and to establish and measure a portion of management's compensation.

The non-IFRS measures used by our management and supervisory boards include:

EBITDA, which we define as net profit (loss) calculated in accordance with IFRS before financial result, taxes, depreciation and amortization; for purposes of our EBITDA calculation, we define "financial result" to include financial result as calculated in accordance with IFRS and foreign exchange gains (losses) on intercompany indebtedness.

We have not provided a reconciliation of our non-IFRS financial measures to their most directly comparable IFRS measures in this press release because we have not yet finalized the specific items required to reconcile our non-IFRS financial measures to their most directly comparable IFRS financial measures. Accordingly, a reconciliation of the non-IFRS financial measures to the corresponding IFRS measures is not available without unreasonable effort.
