EBITDAX


Also found in: Acronyms.

EBITDAX

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and exploration. A measure of an oil, gas, or mineral company's ability to produce income on its operations in a given year. It is calculated as the company's revenue less its expenses (such as overhead), but including its tax liability, interest paid on debt, depreciation, amortization, and what it spends in exploring for new oil, gas, or mineral deposits. It is important to note that EBITDAX does not account for one-off or otherwise unusual revenues and expenses, only recurring ones. It is used when determining whether an energy or similar company can repay a loan; often a loan used to acquire another company.
