Earnings Before Interest After Taxes - EBIAT
Definition of 'Earnings Before Interest After Taxes - EBIAT'
A financial measure that is an indicator of a company's operating performance. EBIAT, which is equivalent to after-tax EBIT measures a company's profitability without taking into account the capital structure, i.e., the ratio of debt to equity. EBIAT takes taxes into account because they are viewed as an ongoing expense that is beyond a company's control, especially if it is profitable. EBIAT is not as commonly used in financial analysis as the EBITDA measure. EBIAT is calculated as: EBIT x (1 - Tax rate).
