MARKHAM, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/21/12 -- VIQ Solutions Inc.

"Our pipeline of opportunities continues to grow on a global basis in the digital media capture and management industry and we are working to convert these market opportunities into significant contract wins."

Notes

1. EBITDA is a non-IFRS earnings measure which does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and therefore may not be comparable to EBITDA presented by other companies. EBITDA represents earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. This measure is important to management since it is used by potential investors to evaluate the Corporation's operating performance and ability to incur and service debt, and as a valuation metric. Investors are cautioned that this non-IFRS financial measure should not be construed as an alternative to other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with IFRS.

It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
