Income Before Extraordinary Items and Discontinued Operations

View Financial Glossary Index


Net income after tax items, but without factoring in income/loss from discontinued operations or any losses from extraordinary items. This is intended to give a picture of how a company would be performing under normal circumstances.

Note: extraordinary items is a catch-all for irregular or non-recurring events, such as accidents or natural disasters. Discontinued operations refers to a unit or segment of a business that has been sold, abandoned or otherwise discontinued.
