German: Operative Marge. The  operating margin is the percentage ratio of the operating profit over sales revenues. In most cases the operating profit is the EBIT, being the earnings before deducting financial expenses and tax expenses, often also before adding financial income. But the operating profit may also be the EBITDA or EBITA or even other earnings figures out of the profit and loss account.
