About Non-IFRS Financial Measures

Our reported results and financial targets include certain non-IFRS financial measures, including non-IFRS gross profit, non-IFRS operating income, non-IFRS net income, non-IFRS net income per diluted share and free cash flow. Management believes that the use of non-IFRS financial measures provides consistency and comparability with our past financial performance, facilitates period to period comparisons of results of operations, and also facilitates comparisons with other peer companies, many of which use similar non-IFRS or non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their IFRS or GAAP results. Non-IFRS results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only to aid in understanding our operating results. The non-IFRS results should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with IFRS, and may be different from non-IFRS measures used by other companies.

Our non-IFRS financial measures reflect adjustments based on the items below:

Non-IFRS gross profit. Excludes expenses related to share-based compensation and amortization of acquired intangibles.

Non-IFRS operating income. Excludes expenses related to share-based compensation and amortization of acquired intangibles.

Non-IFRS net income and non-IFRS net income per diluted share. Excludes expenses related to share-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles and related income tax effects on these items.

Free cash flow. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, which consist of purchases of property, equipment and software. Management considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by our business that can be used for strategic opportunities, including investing in our business, making strategic acquisitions and strengthening our statement of financial position.

We exclude expenses related to share-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles and income tax effect on these items from certain of our non-IFRS financial measures as we believe this helps investors understand our operational performance. In addition, share-based compensation expense can be difficult to predict and varies from period to period and company to company due to differing valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments, as well as changes in stock price. Management believes that providing non-IFRS financial measures that exclude share-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangibles and the tax effects of those items allow for more meaningful comparisons between our operating results from period to period.

We include the effect of our outstanding share options and RSUs in weighted-average shares used in computing non-IFRS net income per diluted share. IFRS excludes the impact of the full weighting of these outstanding equity awards until the effectiveness of our initial public offering. We have presented the full weighting impact of these additional shares from previously granted share options and RSUs, as if they were outstanding from the date of grant, in order to provide investors with insight into the full impact of all potentially dilutive awards outstanding and provide comparability.

Our management uses non-IFRS gross profit, non-IFRS operating income, non-IFRS net income, non-IFRS net income per diluted share and free cash flow:

  • as a measure of operating performance, because these financial measures do not include the impact of items not directly resulting from our core operations;
  • for planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget;
  • to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of our business;
  • to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies; and
  • in communications with our board of directors concerning our financial performance.

The tables in this press release titled "Reconciliation of IFRS to Non-IFRS Results" and "Reconciliation of Selected IFRS to Non-IFRS Financial Targets" provide reconciliations of non-IFRS financial measures to the most recent directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with IFRS.

We understand that although non-IFRS gross profit, non-IFRS operating income, non-IFRS net income, non-IFRS net income per diluted share and free cash flow are frequently used by investors and securities analysts in their evaluation of companies, these measures have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our results of operations as reported under IFRS.
