French term or phrase: chiffre d'affaires économique
In a discussion of a company's performance over the past year, the first figure given is "Le chiffre d'affaires économique", followed by "le résultat net consolidé". Am I right to believe that the "chiffre d'affaires économique" refers to sales from normal business activity, and is there a preferred translation for this into US English? Thanks in advance,

Explanation:
Hi Germaine,

I don't know what the accounting term in US English is for this figure.

It seems to be the total consolidated revenues plus other revenues of the group (defined somewhere in your document?).
