WWE Financials: WWE Studios Doesn’t Not Lose Money


For what seems like the first time in forever, WWE Studios did not report a loss on the WWE Financials. Here is the official word from WWE…

WWE Studios recognized revenue of $2.1 million as compared to revenue of $0.6 million in the prior year quarter, reflecting the impact of a current quarter release, No One Lives, and the timing of results generated by our overall portfolio of movies, including the impact of The Marine and The Marine 2, which were released in prior periods. Although five films were released during the first half 2013, including two films in the current quarter (No One Lives and 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded) and the successful release of The Call in the first quarter, revenues for these movies will be recognized on a net basis as participation statements are received from our distribution partners rather than upon release as was the case with the Company’s self-distributed movies. In general, for movies that are not self-distributed, the Company does not expect to begin recognizing revenue until four-to-six months after release. As such, the recognition of revenue related to The Call is not expected until the second half of 2013.
