Entire Document


In addition to recording the impact of significant financing components associated with our NCM ESA and CUA agreement, we have determined that based on how the performance obligations are fulfilled under these agreements, the related deferred revenues will be amortized on a straight-line basis under ASC 606 versus the units of revenue method followed prior to adoption of ASC 606.  As a result of the change in amortization method, we expect to record a cumulative effect of accounting change adjustment of no more than $55 million in retained earnings effective January 1, 2018, with an offsetting decrease in deferred revenue - NCM.  


We currently record online surcharges net of service fees as amounts have been immaterial. We have determined that we are the principal in the arrangement, and therefore, in accordance with ASC 606 guidance, we will recognize online surcharges in revenues on a gross basis and record all related service fees as an operating expense.  As a result of this change, our other revenues and utilities and other costs will increase on a prospective basis, but will not have a material impact on our results of operations.  


We currently have a domestic loyalty program that awards points to our members upon completion of various purchases and other transactions. Under ASC 606, we will have to defer a portion of the proceeds received from each purchase as a liability to provide future goods and services (or rewards in exchange for points) to program members.  We expect this will result in slight reductions in admissions and concessions revenues with an offsetting increase in other long-term liabilities, but will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.  

The timing of revenue recognition for other revenue streams, including revenues for unredeemed gift cards and other advanced sales-type certificates, will also be impacted by the adoption of ASC 606, but we do not expect such changes to be material.

Impact of Tax Reform

On December 22, 2017, the President signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Act”). The Tax Act, among other things, lowered the U.S. corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21% effective January 1, 2018 and included a one-time transition tax on certain undistributed earnings of foreign subsidiaries. We recorded a net one-time benefit of $44.9 million, all non-cash, related to enactment of the Tax Act, including a re-measurement of deferred tax liabilities using the lower U.S. corporate income tax rate, a reassessment of permanently reinvested earnings, a deemed repatriation tax, and a reduction in a deferred tax asset with regard to foreign tax credit carryforwards.

While we have substantially completed our provisional analysis of the income tax effects of the Tax Act and recorded a reasonable estimate of such effects, the net one-time charge related to the Tax Act may differ, possibly materially, due to: further refinement of our calculations, changes in interpretations and assumptions that we have made, and additional guidance that may be issued by the U.S. government. We will complete our analysis over a one-year measurement period ending December 22, 2018, and any adjustments during this measurement period will be included in net income from continuing operations as an adjustment to income tax expense in the reporting period when such adjustments are determined.
