Item 8.01 Other Events
This document provides a revised description of business and summary recast segment financial information for fiscal year 2020, 2019 and 2018 to reflect the following:
Media and Entertainment Reorganization
In October 2020, the Company reorganized its media and entertainment operations, which were previously reported in three segments: Media Networks, Studio Entertainment and Direct-to-Consumer & International. Under this reorganization, a single group is responsible for distributing all of the Company’s media and entertainment content across all platforms globally and has full accountability for the financial results of the media and entertainment businesses. Content in support of the distribution platforms is generally created by three production/content licensing groups: Studios, General Entertainment and Sports.
As a result of the reorganization, effective at the beginning of the first quarter of fiscal 2021, operations of the media and entertainment businesses are reported as one segment, Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution (DMED), with financial results reported across three significant lines of business/distribution platforms: Direct-to-Consumer, Linear Networks and Content Sales/Licensing.
Intersegment Transfer Pricing
Under our previous segment structure, in certain instances production and distribution activities were in different segments. In these situations, for segment financial accounting purposes, the producer segment would recognize revenue based on an intersegment transfer price that included a “mark-up”. These transactions were reported “gross” (i.e. the segment producing the content reported revenue and the mark-up from intersegment transactions, and the required eliminations were reported on a separate “Eliminations” line when presenting a summary of our segment results). Under our new segment structure, the operating results of the production and distribution activities are reported in the same segment, and the fully loaded production cost is allocated across the distribution platforms utilizing the content.
Elimination of Consumer Products Revenue Share
Under our legacy segment financial reporting, the Studio Entertainment segment received a revenue share related to the consumer products business, which is included in the Disney Parks, Experiences and Products (DPEP) segment. Under the new reporting structure, DMED will not receive a revenue share from DPEP related to the consumer products business.
