    standard definition under IFRS. It is therefore possible that this
    measure could not be comparable with a similar measure of another
    Corporation. The Corporation uses this non-GAAP measure which can also
    be helpful to investors as it provides a result which can be compared
    with the Corporation's market share price.

    with a similar measure of another Corporation. The Corporation uses this
    non-GAAP measure which can also be helpful to investors as it provides a
    result which can be compared with the Corporation's market share price.
