Operating cash flows, post tax and post interests?

Are operating cash flows a post interest and post tax metric?

Operating Cah flows are post TAX but not Post Interest as Interest Expense is an outflow from Financing activities not Operating .

It is EBIT* (I-TAX Rate)

Isn’t Interest expense an Operating outflow under US GAAP and possibly also under IFRS?

I’m confused now.

Operating Cash Flow = EBIT (1 - Tax Rate). Interest is an expense that’s reported in the Cash flow from operations.

Why isn’t it (EBIT - Interest)* (1 - Tax Rate)?



Could someone please clarify that?

Operating CF Before Interest and Tax = Operating CF + Cash interest Paid + Cash taxes paid
