  • i. International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) earnings per share (EPS) for the fourth quarter of 2016 included an aggregate charge of $0.25 (pre-tax) per share for employee stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets (excluding computer software) and restructuring charges. This aggregate charge is above the range we provided on October 20, 2016 of an aggregate charge of between $0.09 to $0.14 per share for these items (see the tables in Schedule 1 attached hereto for per-item charges), due to higher than anticipated restructuring charges related to our exit from the solar panel manufacturing business (discussed below).
  • IFRS EPS and adjusted EPS (non-IFRS) for the fourth quarter of 2016 were favorably impacted by a $0.07 per share net benefit related to income taxes, comprised of a $0.10 per share income tax recovery attributable to the resolution of certain previously disputed tax matters in Canada (including related refund interest income) and a $0.03 per share favorable deferred tax recovery, offset in part by a $ 0.06 per share income tax expense related to taxable foreign exchange resulting from the weakening of the Malaysian ringgit and Chinese renminbi relative to the U.S. dollar. See notes 12 and 14 to our December 31, 2016 unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements (Interim Financial Statements). The foregoing items arose in the fourth quarter of 2016, and were therefore not factored into our guidance for adjusted EPS (non-IFRS) for that period. Non-IFRS adjusted EPS for the fourth quarter of 2016 would have been towards the high end of our guidance range for the quarter without the net income tax benefits referred to above.
  • IFRS EPS and adjusted EPS (non-IFRS) for full year 2016 were favorably impacted by an aggregate $0.22 per share net benefit related to income taxes, comprised of a $0.34 per share income tax recovery attributable to the resolution in the second half of 2016 of certain previously disputed tax matters in Canada (including related refund interest income), offset in part by an aggregate $0.07 per share negative impact from current and deferred withholding taxes, as well as a $0.05 per share income tax expense related to taxable foreign exchange impacts similar to those noted above. See notes 12 and 14 to our Interim Financial Statements.
  • IFRS EPS for the fourth quarter and full year 2015 were negatively impacted by an $0.08 per share non-cash impairment charge (aggregate of $12.2 million) on certain of our property, plant and equipment. IFRS EPS and adjusted EPS (non-IFRS) for the full year 2015 included an $0.08 per share (aggregate of $12.2 million) income tax expense related to taxable foreign exchange impacts similar to those noted above, arising in the third quarter of 2015. See note 12 to our Interim Financial Statements.
  • Our non-IFRS operating margin of 3.8% for the fourth quarter of 2016 was consistent with the mid-point of our expectations.
  • In addition, the calculation of our weighted average number of shares (used to determine our IFRS EPS and non-IFRS adjusted EPS) for the full year 2016 reflects the full impact of the reduction in outstanding subordinate voting shares as a result of our share repurchases and cancellations in 2015 pursuant to our $350.0 million substantial issuer bid and our Normal Course Issuer Bid then in effect. Accordingly, the positive effect of the reduced weighted average number of shares on our IFRS EPS and non-IFRS adjusted EPS for the full year 2016 was greater as compared to full year 2015.
  • ii. Non-IFRS measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other public companies that use IFRS or other generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). See "Non-IFRS Supplementary Information" below for information on our rationale for the use of non-IFRS measures, and Schedule 1 for, among other items, non-IFRS measures included in this press release, as well as their definitions, uses, and a reconciliation of non-IFRS to IFRS measures.
