EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, depreciation, taxes, and amortization. EBITDA measures profitability. It is important to note that EBITDA can be misleading as a cash flow evaluation tool because it does not take into account cash used to fund working capital or replace old equipment.

EBITDA = Revenue - Expenses (excluding tax, interest, depreciation, and amortization)
