Costco Wholesale EBIT Calculation

EBIT, sometimes also called Earnings Before Interest and Taxes, is a measure of a firm's profit that includes all expenses except interest and income tax expenses. It is the difference between operating revenues and operating expenses. When a firm does not have non-operating income, then Operating Income is sometimes used as a synonym for EBIT and operating profit.

EBIT for the trailing twelve months (TTM) ended in Feb. 2020 was 1158 (May. 2019 ) + 1537 (Aug. 2019 ) + 1096 (Nov. 2019 ) + 1311 (Feb. 2020 ) = $5,102 Mil.
