operating profit / trading profit / operating income


Explanation:
The above terms seem to be synonymous, according to Valente, who defines the French thus: "Bénéfice découlant de l'exploitation de l'entreprise dans son activité normale et réprésentant l'excédent des produits d'exploitation sur les charges d'exploitation avant impôt."
