The Company changed its fiscal year end from June 30th to August 31st effective 2014. Therefore the immediately comparable period is the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Net loss for the nine months ended June 30, 2014 was $2.1 million.

EBITDA is a non-IFRS earnings measure which does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to EBITDA presented by other companies. EBITDA represents earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. This measure is important to management since it is used by potential investors to evaluate the Company–s operating performance and ability to incur and service debt, and as a valuation metric. Investors are cautioned that this non-IFRS financial measure should not be construed as an alternative to other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with IFRS.

Renewal of Debt Facilities

The Company has renewed with Royal Bank of Canada its mortgage with a balance of $6.6 million on the property (held in its wholly-owned subsidiary) located in the heart of Liberty Village on Jefferson Avenue in Toronto and renewed its term loan with a balance of $6.6 million secured by a charge over the assets of the Company including the Jefferson Avenue property. The initial 3-year term for the mortgage and term loan ended on June 27, 2015. The mortgage and term loan have been renewed for a further 3-year term at an interest rate of 4.43% per annum down from 6.297% per annum.

The original net proceeds of the mortgage and term loan were used to replace a previous mortgage on the property and to fund the renovations of the Company–s Jefferson Avenue property so that it could consolidate all of its operatio ns into one location.
