EBIT (Earnings Before Interest and Taxes) is a measure of a entity's profitability that excludes interest and income tax expenses. Interest and taxes are excluded because they include the effect of factors other than the profitability of operations. EBIT (also called operating profit) shows an entity's earning power from ongoing operations.
