Data Feed: Revenue to EBITDA Reconciliation

This data set contains the data we use to calculate EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation & Amortization). Updated daily.

See the General Information page for details on coverage, data file structure, delivery information, and sample real-time, point-in-time backtest and historical data files.


Total Revenue
Total revenue as reported on the income statement.
+ Total Operating Income
Sum of a company's operating income derived outside of revenues.
- Total Operating Expense
Total operating expenses disclosed on the income statement.
- Total Hidden Non-Operating Expense, Net
Total Net Non-Operating Expenses Hidden in Operating Earnings are the net of losses and gains that do not appear directly on the income statement. These items are bundled inside other line items that appear on the income statement. Hidden items are found only in the Management Discussion & Analysis (MD&A) or in the footnotes to the financial statements.
- ESO Expense (Employee Stock Options)
ESO Expense (Employee Stock Options), net is the cost of issuing (at-the-money) employee stock options (ESOs) to employees before companies were required to expense ESOs. Prior to 2006, businesses were not required to record any cost for issuing ESOs. Using data provided only in footnotes, we charge companies for the cost of all ESO issuances long before FASB required companies to report the expense. This charge only appears in historical filings prior to adoption of the new accounting standards.
+ Goodwill Amortization Expense, Net
Goodwill Amortization Expenses, net is a gradual, formulaic reduction in goodwill asset value using any of the several GAAP amortization methods. In 2002, FASB did away with Goodwill amortization and replaced it with the practice of goodwill impairment. This adjustment only appears in historical filings prior to adoption of the new accounting standards.
+ Calculated Single Period Value for Depreciation and Amortization (Cash Flow)
The value of depreciation and amortization from on the cash flow statement for this period. This datapoint removes the cumulative reporting of the cash flow statement in quarterly filings to get the value for only the period of the document, similar to the way the income statement is reported.
Adjusted operating earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. This version of EBITDA is adjusted for unusual gains/losses found only in the footnotes or MD&A.
