Summary
Cash Burn Rate

What is Cash Burn Rate? Meaning.

The Cash Burn Rate became a popular metric during the dot-com era to assess how quickly start-up or Internet companies are using up their cash reserves.


Calculation of Cash Burn Rate. Formula

The cash burn rate can be calculated in one of two ways:

  1. The first calculation method is based on the cash flow statement and takes the cash used for operations plus cash used for capital expenditures and purchases of ongoing businesses (net of cash received) and divides it by the number of months covered by the cash flow statement (i.e. 12 months for annual and 3 months for quarterly statements).
  2. The second calculation method is based on the income statement and divides the earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) excluding non-recurring gains and losses by the number of months covered by the income statement.

The related measure of "Months to Burnout" can provide an estimate of how much longer a company can survive without a capital increase (via debt or equity financing) and is calculated as follows:


Months to Burnout = (Cash + Cash Equivalents + Short-term Marketable Securities) / Cash Burn Rate.
