  1. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization

    A company's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization is an accounting measure calculated using a company's net earnings, before interest expenses, taxes, depreciation and amortization are subtracted, as a proxy for a company's current operationing profitability, i.e., how much profit it makes with its present assets and its operations on the products it produces and sells, as well as providing a proxy for cash flow. Although EBITDA is not a financial measure recognized in generally accepted accounting principles, it is widely used in many areas of finance when assessing the performance of a company, such as securities analysis. It is intended to allow a comparison of profitability between different companies, by discounting the effects of interest payments from different forms of financing, political jurisdictions, collections of assets, and different takeover histories. EBITDA is a financial measurement of cash flow from operations that is widely used in Mergers and Acquisitions of small businesses and businesses in the middle market.
