film costs classified as inventory, then depreciated upon release
Long-Term contracts smooth balance sheet-- will they ever be capitalized?
Spending more money than they're making ($29,845,000) ($213,835,000) With so many movie distributors, Netflix's future of long-term viability is not a guarantee! How does Dreamworks determine the depreciation of films? Dreamworks considers partially-produced films assets even though they have no value ... smoothing??? Why does a company like
Dreamworks have half a billion
dollars worth of "inventory" ? Dreamworks is more consistent than a film company should look
It is in their best interest to appear as consistent as possible because investors are turned off by volatility
Does Dreamworks smooth over any of their numbers?
How MIGHT they do this? MAJOR COMPETITION Dreamworks' classification of this long-term contract as an accounts receivable is misleading .. smoothing?? When a film is released,
Dreamworks immediately starts
depreciating the asset Lets Investigate! Operating Smoothing??? Estimate the "Ultimate Revenue" to be received from a movie, and then continually depreciates the film until that revenue is realized.
Have the right to revise these estimates at any time Operating Activities 2011
