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 Mar. 2018 was 7629 (Jun. 2017 ) + 6863 (Sep. 2017 ) + 7985 (Dec. 2017 ) + -331 (Mar. 2018 ) = $22,146 Mil.

Explanation

1. EBIT or Operating Income is linked to Return on Capital for both regular definition and Joel Greenblatt's definition.

Berkshire Hathaway Inc's annualized ROC % for the quarter that ended in Mar. 2018 is calculated as:

ROC %(Q: Mar. 2018 )
=NOPAT/Average Invested Capital
=Operating Income*(1-Tax Rate)/( (Invested Capital (Q: Dec. 2017 ) + Invested Capital (Q: Mar. 2018 ))/2)
=0 * ( 1 - 29.68% )/( (334929 + 337924)/2)
=0/336426.5
=0.00 %

where

Invested Capital(Q: Dec. 2017 )
=Book Value of Debt + Book Value of Equity - Cash
=Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation + Current Portion of Long-Term Debt + Total Stockholders Equity - Cash
=77500 + 25087 + 348296 - 115954
=334929

Invested Capital(Q: Mar. 2018 )
=Book Value of Debt + Book Value of Equity - Cash
=Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation + Current Portion of Long-Term Debt + Total Stockholders Equity - Cash
=76490 + 22595 + 347401 - 108562
=337924

=EBIT/Average of (Property, Plant and Equipment+Net Working Capital)
     Q: Dec. 2017  Q: Mar. 2018
=EBIT/( ( (Property, Plant and Equipment + Net Working Capital) + (Property, Plant and Equipment + Net Working Capital) )/2 )
=-1324/( ( (145901 + max(-7325, 0)) + (149775 + max(-10306, 0)) )/2 )
=-1324/( ( 145901 + 149775 )/2 )
