Represents ordinary share-based compensation expense for Q2 2023 and Q1 2023. Q2 2022 reflects a $21.0 million share-based compensation expense related to the graded vesting from the restricted stock units granted as a result of closing the Company's Recapitalization Transaction on June 24, 2022.

Reflects accrued interest on the exit fee owed to the holders of the Company’s 13.0% senior secured convertible debentures. As the Company's Recapitalization Transaction closed on June 24, 2022, the Company will no longer incur debt obligation fees relating to such debentures.
Includes one-time, non-recurring costs related to the Company’s Recapitalization Transaction, its strategic review process, ongoing legal disputes, and severance and other non-recurring costs associated with having become a U.S. reporting company. These non-recurring costs are offset by insurance proceeds received as reimbursement for certain legal costs incurred.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the SEC and the Canadian Securities Administrators. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP are included in the tables above. This information should be considered as supplemental in nature and not as a substitute for, or superior to, any measure of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

In evaluating our business, we consider and use EBITDA as a supplemental measure of operating performance. We define EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We present EBITDA because we believe it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as a measure of financial performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA before stock-based compensation, accretion expense, write-downs and impairments, gains and losses from changes in fair values of financial instruments, income or losses from equity-accounted investments, changes in accounting policy, non-recurring costs related to the Company’s Recapitalization Transaction, and litigation costs related to ongoing legal proceedings.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not standardized financial measures defined under GAAP, and are not a measure of operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as an analytical tool, and when assessing the Company’s operating performance, investors should not consider EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA in isolation, or as a substitute for net income (loss) or other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Among other things, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the Company’s actual cash expenditures. Other companies may calculate similar measures differently than us, limiting their usefulness as comparative tools. We compensate for these limitations by relying on GAAP results and using EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA only as supplemental information.
