Earnings before interest and tax.
EBIT is a measure of company’s profitability. EBIT is calculated as Revenue minus Operating Expenses plus Non-Operating Income.
Operating expenses include cost of goods sold, depreciation and amortization, selling, general and administrative expenses and other expenses.
Non-operating income is a part of company’s income that generated not by company’s core business. That may include income from investments, dividend income etc.
If company doesn’t have non-operating income than EDIT is equal to operating income.
EBIT is a popular measure because doesn’t depend on company’s capital structure and tax regime. It allows to make comparison of companies with different debt-equity ratios and with different tax rates.
