 EBITDA is calculated as operating profit excluding depreciation, impairment and the result of disposal of assets and one-time expenses and takes into account the impact of IFRS 16.
 Lease liabilities do not take into account obligations under lease agreements, which until January 1, 2019 was recognized as operating prior to entry into force of IFRS 16, therefore, adjusted EBITDA is also used to calculate coefficients without taking into account impact of the effect of applying IFRS 16.
