How to calculate EBITDA

To calculate EBITDA, follow these steps:

  1. Determine the company’s net income: Obtain the net income figure from the company’s income statement. Net income is the total revenue minus all operating expenses, interest, and taxes.

  2. Add back interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation: Identify the interest expense, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation from the company’s financial statements. Add these values back to the net income obtained in step 1.

  3. Calculate EBITDA: Sum up the net income, interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation figures to calculate the EBITDA.

The formula for calculating EBITDA is:

EBITDA = Net income + Interest + Taxes + Depreciation + Amortisation

EBITDA is commonly used as a measure of a company’s cash flow and profitability, as it provides insight into its operating performance without considering non-operating factors. However, it’s important to note that EBITDA has limitations and should be used alongside other financial metrics and analysis when evaluating a company’s financial health.
