EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial figure that measures a company's profitability before deductions that are considered somewhat superfluous to the business decision-making process. These deductions are interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, all of which are not part of a company's operating costs and are therefore not associated with the maintenance and administration of a business on a day-to-day basis.
The true benefit of a high return on equity arises when retained earnings are reinvested into the company’s operations. Such reinvestment should, in turn, lead to a high rate of growth for the company. The internal growth rate is a formula for calculating maximum growth rate that a firm can achieve without resorting to external financing. It’s essentially the growth that a firm can supply by reinvesting its earnings. This can be described as (retained earnings)(total assets ), or conceptually as the total amount of internal capital available compared to the current size of the organization.
