Notes:

  1. Assets under management or "AUM" refers to the market value of net
     assets of the investment funds on which management fees are
     calculated. Industry data as reported by the Investment Funds


 Institute of Canada.
  2. Operating EBITDA defined by NexGen as earnings before interest, 
 taxes, depreciation and amortization, investment income and other 
 non-cash expenses.
  3. Free Cash Flow defined as Operating EBITDA less interest and 
 deferred sales commissions paid. 
Non-GAAP financial measures such as "Assets Under Management" or "AUM", 
"Operating EBITDA", and "Free Cash Flow" do not have any standardized meaning 
prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and may not 
be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Readers are 
cautioned that these non-GAAP measures are not alternatives to measures 
determined in accordance with IFRS and should not, on their own, be construed 
as indicators of performance, cash flows, or profitability. However, 
management of NexGen believes that most shareholders, creditors and other 
stakeholders prefer to include the use of these financial measures in 
analyzing the Company's results.
