English term or phrase:headline earnings
The Chairman announced headline earnings of $xxx, an increase of x% on the same period last year.
I found this definition for headline earnings:
"A basis for measuring earnings per share implemented by the Institute of Investment Management and Research. This method accounts for all the profits and losses from operational, trading, and interest activities, that have been discontinued or acquired at any point during the year. Excluded from this figure are profits or losses associated with the sale or termination of discontinued operations, fixed assets or related businesses, or from any permanent devaluation or write off of their values."
Does anybody know how they are called in Spanish? They are not beneficios netos as net profit is part of headline earnings.
