Profitability - US.

Earnings Before Interest, Taxes and Amortisation.

EBITA is designed to compare underlying operating performance over time or between businesses, free from any distortions caused by differing financial structures, tax, or the historical cost of fixed assets.

EBITA means the same as 'EBITDA' in other countries.

The additional 'D' in EBITDA is for 'Depreciation' of tangible long-term assets.

In the US, and elsewhere, where 'amortisation/amortization' includes both tangible and intangible assets - the D isn't needed.
