TR.EBITDA vs TR.NormalizedEbitda vs TR.EBITDAActValue

Hello, Im checking for AAPL.O with the python API and i cant understand the difference between these 3 data item codes for EBITDA. They all report pretty much the same number, and the description is pretty much the same too, so what is the difference?

TR.EBITDA and TR.NormalizedEbitda are exactly the same? TR.EBITDAActValue is almost the same, but im guessing this is the reported data by the company? what is the difference with the other two?

Thanks in advance for the help!

You can use a Data Item Browser app to find definitions of these fields. For example:

  • TR.EBITDA
    EBITDA is EBIT for the fiscal year plus the same period's Depreciation, Supplemental [VDEP], Amortization of Acquisition Costs, Supplemental [VAMA] and Amortization of Intangibles, Supplemental [VAMI]
  • TR.NormalizedEbitda
    Represents the sum of: Operating Income; Interest Expense (Income), Net Operating; Unusual Expense (Income); Loss (Gain) on Sale of Assets & Operating; Depreciation, Supplemental; Amortization of Acquisition Costs, Supplemental and Amortization of Intangibles, Supplemental
  • TR.EBITDAActValue
    EBITDA gauges the raw earnings power of a company before debt servicing, corporate taxes, and any allowances made for depreciation and amortization costs the company faces. It is calculated in general form by taking the pre-tax corporate income of a company, adding back any depreciation and amortization costs charged, plus any interest expense on debt (subtracting any capitalized interest)

For more information regarding these fields, you can directly contact Eikon support team via Contact Us.

You can visit this article on how to use the Data Item Browser.

Although the article mentions to JET API, the same fields can be used with Eikon Data API as well.
