How Do Unusual Items Influence Profit?

For anyone who wants to understand Rimon Consulting & Management Services' profit beyond the statutory numbers, it's important to note that during the last twelve months statutory profit gained from ₪14m worth of unusual items. We can't deny that higher profits generally leave us optimistic, but we'd prefer it if the profit were to be sustainable. When we crunched the numbers on thousands of publicly listed companies, we found that a boost from unusual items in a given year is often not repeated the next year. And, after all, that's exactly what the accounting terminology implies. If Rimon Consulting & Management Services doesn't see that contribution repeat, then all else being equal we'd expect its profit to drop over the current year.
