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
