Mr. Pape continued, “In China, sales increased sequentially as a result
of a realigned distribution strategy which is already providing a better
platform for us as we grow into that market. In Canada, the Parasol
acquisition which we consummated in the first quarter has proven to be a
great strategic move for the company, although the weakness in the
Canadian dollar continues to impact our consolidated results.
Nonetheless, the acquisition has been quite accretive on a constant
currency basis.

“During the quarter, we soft launched a window film line and the initial
feedback has been very positive. This is as a complimentary product line
and one which is used by many of our customers. Furthermore, we continue
to focus on making our product the easiest to order and deliver, and are
in the process of rolling out a new ordering and account management
portal in the fourth quarter to provide best in class ordering
experience.”

Constant Currency

The Company reports results in U.S. Dollars, but does business on a
global basis. Exchange rate fluctuations affect the U.S. Dollar value
for foreign currency revenue and expenses and may have a significant
effect on reported results. Comparisons are made to the prior year in
constant currency terms, which Management believes is helpful in
understanding the Company’s performance. Constant currency is calculated
by converting current period results using the prior year currency
exchange rates.

Non-IFRS Measures

In addition to disclosing results in accordance with IFRS as issued by
FASB, the Company also provides supplementary non-IFRS measures as a
method of evaluating the Company’s performance.

Management uses EBITDA as a measure of company-wide performance. EBITDA
is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and
amortization. Management believes EBITDA is a useful measure to allow
period-to-period comparison of the Company’s operating performance.
EBITDA does not have a standardized meaning under IFRS and is not
necessarily comparable to measures presented by other Companies. EBITDA
excludes components that are significant in understanding and assessing
our results of operations and cash flows. EBITDA does not represent
funds available for Management’s discretionary use and is not intended
to represent cash flow from operations. EBITDA should not be considered
a substitute for Net Income prepared in accordance with IFRS as issued
by the FASB.
