(1) Basic earnings per share is calculated by dividing our profit after tax as, reduced by the amount of a non-controlling interest reflecting the remaining approximately 19.6% of Amira India that is not indirectly owned by us, by the number of our weighted average outstanding ordinary shares during the applicable period, and diluted earnings per share is calculated by dividing our profit after tax as reduced by the amount of a non-controlling interest reflecting the remaining approximately 19.6% of Amira India that is not indirectly/ directly owned by us, by the number of our weighted average outstanding ordinary shares adjusted by dilutive impact of equivalent stock options granted. The dilutive impact of total share options (360,257 and 361,278) granted to a director in fiscal years 2013 and 2014 was insignificant and hence there is no change in Basic and diluted earnings per share.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

In evaluating our business, we consider and use the non-IFRS measures EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted profit after tax, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted net working capital and net debt as supplemental measures to review and assess our operating performance. The presentation of these non-IFRS financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with IFRS. We define: (1) EBITDA as profit after tax plus finance costs (net of finance income), non-recurring IPO-related expenses, income tax expense and depreciation and amortization; (2) Adjusted EBITDA, as EBITDA plus approximately $2.9 million and $0.2 million of non - cash expense for share based compensation for FY2014 and FY2013, respectively (3) Adjusted profit after tax, as profit after tax plus $1.8 million in non-recurring IPO-related expenses for FY13 and approximately $2.9 million and $0.2 million of non - cash expense for share based compensation for FY2014 and FY2013, respectively; (4) adjusted earnings per share as the quotient of: (a) adjusted profit after tax and (b) the sum of our outstanding ordinary shares and the ordinary shares subject to the exchange agreement between us and the non-controlling shareholders of Amira India, during the applicable period; (5) adjusted net working capital as total current assets minus: (a) cash and cash equivalents and (b) trade payables, current tax liabilities (net) and other current liabilities; and (6) net debt as total current and non-current debt minus cash and cash equivalents.

We use both EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as measures of operating performance to assist in comparing performance from period to period on a consistent basis, as a measure for planning and forecasting overall expectations, for evaluating actual results against such expectations and as a performance evaluation metric, including as part of assessing and administering our executive and employee incentive compensation programs. We believe that the use of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as non-IFRS measures facilitates investors’ assessment of our operating performance from period to period and from company to company by backing out potential differences caused by variations in items such as capital structure (affecting relative finance or interest expenses), non-recurring IPO-related expenses the book amortization of intangibles (affecting relative amortization expenses), the age and book value of property and equipment (affecting relative depreciation expenses) and other non-cash expenses. We also present these non-IFRS measures because we believe they are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties as measures of the financial performance of companies in our industry.

We present adjusted EBITDA, adjusted profit after tax, adjusted earnings per share, adjusted net working capital and net debt because we believe these measures provide additional metrics to evaluate our operations and, when considered with both our IFRS results and the reconciliation to profit after tax, basic and diluted earnings per share, working capital and total current and non-current debt, respectively, provide a more complete understanding of our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. We also believe that these non-IFRS financial measures are useful to investors in assessing the operating performance of our business after reflecting the adjustments described above.
