About the Corporation:
Alaris provides alternative financing to the Private Company Partners in exchange for royalties or distributions with the principal objective of generating stable and predictable cash flows for dividend payments to its shareholders.

The terms EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA are financial measures used in this news release that are not standard measures under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). The Corporation's method of calculating EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA may differ from the methods used by other issuers. Therefore, the Corporation's EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.
EBITDA refers to net earnings (loss) determined in accordance with IFRS, before depreciation and amortization, net of gain or loss on disposal of capital assets, interest expense and income tax expense. EBITDA is used by management and many investors to determine the ability of an issuer to generate cash from operations. Management believes EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure from which to determine the Corporation's ability to generate cash available for debt service, working capital, capital expenditures, income taxes and dividends. The Corporation has provided a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA in this news release.
Normalized EBITDA refers to EBITDA excluding items that are non-recurring in nature, such as gains on the reduction of interests in Private Company Partners.
The terms EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA should only be used in conjunction with the Corporation's annual audited and quarterly reviewed financial statements, excerpts of which are available below, while complete versions are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
