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 Jul. 2017 was 5143 (Oct. 2016 ) + 6235 (Jan. 2017 ) + 5272 (Apr. 2017 ) + 5219 (Jul. 2017 ) = $21,869 Mil.

Explanation

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

Wal-Mart Stores Inc's annualized ROC % for the quarter that ended in Jul. 2017 is calculated as:

ROC %(Q: Jul. 2017 )
=NOPAT/Average Invested Capital
=Operating Income*(1-Tax Rate)/( (Invested Capital (Q: Apr. 2017 ) + Invested Capital (Q: Jul. 2017 ))/2)
=23876 * ( 1 - 32.61% )/( (113643 + 117563)/2)
=16090.0364/115603
=13.92 %

where

Invested Capital(Q: Apr. 2017 )
=Book Value of Debt + Book Value of Equity - Cash
=Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation + Current Portion of Long-Term Debt + Total Equity - Cash
=40025 + 6472 + 73691 - 6545
=113643

Invested Capital(Q: Jul. 2017 )
=Book Value of Debt + Book Value of Equity - Cash
=Long-Term Debt & Capital Lease Obligation + Current Portion of Long-Term Debt + Total Equity - Cash
=40469 + 7174 + 76389 - 6469
=117563

Note: The Operating Income data used here is four times the quarterly (Jul. 2017) operating income data.

2. Joel Greenblatt's definition of Return on Capital:

Wal-Mart Stores Inc's annualized ROC (Joel Greenblatt) % for the quarter that ended in Jul. 2017 is calculated as:

ROC (Joel Greenblatt) %(Q: Jul. 2017 )
=EBIT/Average of (Net fixed Assets + Net Working Capital)
=EBIT/Average of (Property, Plant and Equipment+Net Working Capital)
     Q: Apr. 2017  Q: Jul. 2017
=EBIT/( ( (Property, Plant and Equipment + Net Working Capital) + (Property, Plant and Equipment + Net Working Capital) )/2 )
=20876/( ( (114169 + max(-16930, 0)) + (115353 + max(-15343, 0)) )/2 )
=20876/( ( 114169 + 115353 )/2 )
=20876/114761
=18.19 %

where Working Capital is:

Working Capital(Q: Apr. 2017 )
=(Accounts Receivable + Total Inventories + Other Current Assets) - (Accounts Payable & Accrued Expense + Defer. Rev. + Other Current Liabilities)
=(5252 + 43361 + 2178) - (67721 + 0 + 0)
=-16930

Working Capital(Q: Jul. 2017 )
