In finance, "earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization," sometimes "EBIT-DA." In accounting, a way-station in the slow morph from "conceptual" to "pure cash flow" reporting. Compare "EBAWDWTCAE"--"earnings before anything we don't want to count as expenses."
The net is negative but the EBITDA is sensational.
