Etymology 1

The noun is derived from Latin exitus (departure, going out; way by which one may go out, egress; (figuratively) conclusion, termination; (figuratively) death; income, revenue), from exeō (to depart, exit; to avoid, evade; (figuratively) to escape; of time: to expire, run out) + -tus (suffix forming action nouns from verbs). Exeō is derived from ex- (prefix meaning ‘out, away’) + (to go) (ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *h₁ey- (to go)). The English word is cognate with Italian esito, Portuguese êxito, Spanish éxito. Doublet of ejido.

The verb is derived from the noun.
