Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS financial measure that we calculate as income (loss) before income taxes excluding depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, interest expense, and gain or loss on financial instruments and foreign exchange.
Adjusted EBITDA is a measure used by management and the Board to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends. This measure differs from contribution in that adjusted EBITDA includes additional operating costs, such as general and administration expenses and marketing, but excludes funding interest costs.
The following table presents a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to loss before income taxes, the most comparable IFRS financial measure for each of the periods indicated:

Built for cross device video advertising: Mobile, In-App, Desktop and CTV (Connected Television) the GLN Programmatic Video Advertising Platform has among the lowest fraud rates of similar vendors in the industry. Advertisers make more money by reaching their target audience more effectively. GLN makes money by retaining a percentage of the advertiser’s fee.
