Conference Call

RDM will be hosting a conference call to discuss the Company's second quarter results on April 29, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. EDT. Dial-in numbers are 647-427-7450 or 1-888-231-8191.

Non-IFRS Measures

Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization adjusted for foreign exchange gains and losses, stock-based compensation and one time charges) is provided to assist management and investors in determining the Company's approximate operating cash flows before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Management believes that RDM shareholders and potential investors in RDM use non-IFRS financial measures such as Adjusted EBITDA in making investment decisions about the Company and measuring the operational results. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income determined in accordance with IFRS is provided in the Company's MD&A.
