non-operating income



Income received by a business that is not derived from operations, such as manufacturing. Non-operating income usually does not occur on an ongoing basis, and is examined separately from operating income. An example of non-operating income is income generated through the sale a subsidiary or division, since the company won't be able to resell that division again and the income is a one-time occurrence.
