It might be helpful to know what interest, tax, depreciation and amortization were, so as to judge what the net loss was, and how it compares to the full-year 2016 figure. There is also a need to clarify what EBITDA2 means as opposed to EBITDA. In my understanding EBITDA2 is the EBITDA just for Q2 2017, meaning that the annualised figure would be quadruple the £2.4 million for Q2 alone: a annualised loss of £9.6 million, far worse than the impression of an improvement implied by the figure in brackets of Full-Year EDITDA loss of £6.9 million.
