The metric called EBIT Margin provides a way to look at a company's profitability without considering its cost of capital or taxes. By dividing EBIT into a company's net revenue, the resulting margin percentage can be easily compared to the margins of other companies in its industry, or to its own past performance to assess how the company has evolved and grown.
EBIT Margin = EBIT / R
R = sales revenue
A firm has sales of $500000 with an operating cost of $450000, interest paid of $6000 and a tax rate of 30%.
