Normalized Earnings

1. Earnings for a company not including nonrecurring charges and gains. A one-time charge or gain that deeply affects a company's profits or losses for a given period of time might make it appear more or less healthy than it really is; normalized earnings are an indication of a company's true financial health.

2. Earnings that account for seasonal or economic cycles. See also: Seasonally-adjusted.
