Note 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
There have been no significant changes in the Company’s significant accounting policies during the three months ended March 31, 2017, as compared to the significant accounting policies described in the Form 10-K with the exception of the fighter commission revenue recognition policy disclosed below.
The Company records revenue from ticket sales and sponsorship income upon the successful completion of the related event, at which time services have been deemed rendered, the sales price is fixed and determinable and collectability is reasonably assured. Customer deposits consist of amounts received from the customer for fight promotion and entertainment services to be provided in the next fiscal year. The Company receives these funds and recognizes them as a liability until the services are provided and revenue can be recognized.
Ticket Service Revenue
The Company acts as an agent for ticket sales for promoters and records revenue upon receipt of cash from the credit card companies. The Company charges a fee per transaction for collecting the cash on ticket sales and remits the remaining amount to the promoter upon completion of the event or request for advance from the promoter. The Company’s fee is non-refundable and is recognized immediately as it is not tied to the completion of the event. The Company recognizes revenue upon receipt from the credit card companies due to the following: the fee is fixed and determined and the service of collecting the cash for the promoter has been rendered and collection has occurred.
Fighter Commission Revenue
The Company records fighter commission revenue upon the completion of the contracted athlete’s related event, at which time the fighter’s services have been deemed rendered, the contractual amount due to the fighter is known and the commission due to the Company related to these activities is fixed and determinable and collectability is reasonably assured.
The Company acts as a producer, distributor and licensor of video content. The Company’s online video content is offered on a pay per view (“PPV”) basis. The Company records revenue on PPV transactions upon receipt of payment to credit processing partners. The Company charges viewers a fee per PPV purchase transaction for entitling a viewer to watch the desired video. The Company records revenue net of a fee for the credit card processing cost per transaction. The Company maintains all revenues from videos the Company films and distribute a profit share, typically 50% to promoters who use our streaming services. The Company generates revenues from video production services, and books this revenue upon completion of the video production project. The Company generates revenues from licensing the rights to videos to networks overseas and domestically, and books revenue upon delivery of content. To the extent there are issues (i) watching a video (ii) with our production services or (iii) with the quality of a video we send out for distribution to a network we would issue a partial or full refund based on the circumstances. Given the nature of our business, these refund requests come within days of delivery, thus we would not anticipate any refund request in excess of 30 days from a PPV purchase, a license delivery or video production performance.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” (“ASU 2014-09”), and since May 2014 the FASB has issued amendments to this new guidance, which collectively provides guidance for revenue recognition. ASU 2014-09 is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2018 and, at that time, the Company may adopt the new standard under the full retrospective approach or the modified retrospective approach. Under the new standard, the current practice of many licensing companies of reporting revenues from per-unit royalty based agreements one quarter in arrears would no longer be accepted and instead companies will be expected to estimate royalty-based revenues. The Company is currently evaluating the method of adoption and the resulting impact on the financial statements.
In August 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-15, Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40) (“Update 2014-15”), which requires management to assess a company’s ability to continue as a going concern and to provide related footnote disclosures in certain circumstances. For public entities, Update 2014-15 was effective for annual reporting periods ending after December 15, 2016. The Company adopted this update in 2016 resulting in no impact on its consolidated results of operations, financial position, cash flows and disclosures.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02 “Leases (Topic 842).” The core principle of Topic 842 is that a lessee should recognize the assets and liabilities that arise from leases while the accounting by a lessor is largely unchanged from that applied under previous GAAP. The amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this new standard.
In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, Compensation Stock Compensation (Topic 718) (“ASU 2016-09”). ASU 2016-09 identifies areas for simplification involving several aspects of accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, an option to recognize gross stock compensation expense with actual forfeitures recognized as they occur, as well as certain classifications on the statement of cash flows. This guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016 and for interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted this update effective January 1, 2017.
In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. This ASU addresses the classification of certain specific cash flow issues including debt prepayment or extinguishment costs, settlement of certain debt instruments, contingent consideration payments made after a business combination, proceeds from the settlement of certain insurance claims and distributions received from equity method investees. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. An entity that elects early adoption must adopt all of the amendments in the same period. The Company is currently assessing the impact of this new guidance.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04 to simplify the measurement of goodwill by eliminating the Step 2 impairment test. Step 2 measures a goodwill impairment loss by comparing the implied fair value of a reporting unit’s goodwill with the carrying amount of that goodwill. The new guidance requires an entity to compare the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount and recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value. Additionally, an entity should consider income tax effects from any tax deductible goodwill on the carrying amount of the reporting unit when measuring the goodwill impairment loss, if applicable. The new guidance becomes effective for goodwill impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, though early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact of this new guidance.
In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-01, “Classifying the Definition of a Business.” This ASU clarifies the definition of a business with the objective of adding guidance to assist entities with evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or businesses. For public entities, this ASU is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those periods. Early adoption is permitted for transactions for which the acquisition date occurs before the effective date of the ASU only when the transaction has not been reported in financial statements that have been issued. The Company chose to early adopt this standard effective for the year ended December 31, 2016.
