Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization

A measure of a company's ability to produce income on its operations in a given year. It is calculated as the company's revenue less most of its expenses (such as overhead) but not subtracting its tax liability, interest paid on debt, amortization or depreciation. It is important to note that EBITDA does not account for one-off or otherwise unusual revenues and expenses, only recurring ones. It is a less common measure than EBITD or EBIT.
