while building loyal Client relationships with the MATRRIX brand, we’re
very encouraged at the level of acceptance from customers with strong
capex plans and forecasted activity. We are executing at a high level,
meeting both internal and client expectations. Within the past twelve
months, we’ve assembled and molded our core team and culture, and
proven to the market that MATRRIX is a solid choice to provide high
quality directional and horizontal drilling services and technology.

This press release contains references to EBITDA. This financial measure
is not a measure that has any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS
and is therefore referred to as a non-GAAP measure. The non-GAAP
measures used by the Corporation may not be comparable to similar
measures used by other companies.

(i) EBITDA is defined as “income (loss) before interest, taxes, business
acquisition transaction costs, reverse takeover adjustments,
depreciation, stock based compensation expense, gains on disposal of
property and equipment and foreign exchange.” Management believes that
in addition to net and total comprehensive income (loss), EBITDA is a
useful supplemental measure as it provides an indication of the results
generated by the Corporation’s principal business activities prior to
consideration of how these activities are financed, how the results are
taxed in various jurisdictions, or how the results are effected by the
accounting standards associated with the Corporation’s stock based
compensation plan.
