Notes:

  1. Assets under management or "AUM" refers to the market value of net assets of the investment funds on which management fees are calculated. Industry data as reported by the Investment Funds Institute of Canada.
  2. Operating EBITDA defined by NexGen as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, investment income and other non-cash expenses.
  3. Free Cash Flow defined as Operating EBITDA less interest and deferred sales commissions paid.

Non-GAAP financial measures such as "Assets Under Management" or "AUM", "Operating EBITDA", and "Free Cash Flow" do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Readers are cautioned that these non-GAAP measures are not alternatives to measures determined in accordance with IFRS and should not, on their own, be construed as indicators of performance, cash flows, or profitability. However, management of NexGen believes that most shareholders, creditors and other stakeholders prefer to include the use of these financial measures in analyzing the Company's results.
