EBITDA defined: EBITDA stands for “Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization” and is a non-GAAP indicator of a company’s financial performance. EBITDA is frequently used as a measure of a private company’s financial performance, since it is a good way of comparing the performance of different companies, as it removes the effects of financing and other balance-sheet decisions like interest on debt, or depreciation expense.
