EBITDA and Other Scary Words

Accountants and other financial professionals – and the people they interact with – use, both comfortable and uncomfortably, a vocabulary that meets their needs and enables them to communicate concepts and issues that are critical to their profession. With an eye toward helping our colleagues, clients and friends better understand the things we talk about, we’ve put together a series of articles to help you embrace terminology like EBITDA, GAAP and PP&E, and to help you understand references like contingencies and commitments, along with a host of other terms. We hope this helps. As always, thanks for reading.
