DreamWorks’ profits beat the experts

first_imgFourth quarter profits fell by more than half at DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc., but the company still easily beat Wall Street expectations. The company reported net income of $63.2 million, or 61 cents per share in the quarter ending Dec. 31, 2005, compared to net income of $192 million, of $1.99 per share in the same period last year. Revenue fell to $172.9 million from $495.7 million in the same period last year. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Financial had expected earnings of 42 cents per share. Results were driven mainly by home video revenue from the film “Madagascar,” which contributed $152.3 million worth of revenue during the quarter. Last year’s quarter included home video revenue from the company’s huge hit “Shrek 2” and box office revenue from “Shark Tale.” Despite winning an Oscar for the film “Wallace & Gromit: the Curse of the Were-Rabbit,” DreamWorks Animation took a charge of $25.1 million for the film, which did not perform well at the box office. The write-off reduced fourth quarter earnings by 15 cents per share. The Glendale-based company did not give earnings guidance for 2006. DreamWorks Animation said its next film, “Over the Hedge,” will be released in May and may not generate profits for the company until its release on home video in the fourth quarter. The film “Flushed Away” will be released in November and will not generate significant returns until 2007. Ahead of the income report, DreamWorks shares rose 23 cents to close at $26.86 Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange. They gained 8 cents in late-session trade.

Freshman leads golfers to first

first_imgWhen a team has as much talent as the College of the Canyons’ men’s golf team does, it’s in for some surprises. Freshman Edgar Reyes, struggling at season’s start, the shot a 1-under-par 71 to win a Western State Conference match Monday at Tierra Rejada Country Club in Moorpark and help the Cougars catch nemesis Santa Barbara in the conference standings. COC (20-4) finished second to host Moorpark in the team scoring and is knotted with Santa Barbara (20-4), which finished fourth, atop the WSC. “(Reyes is) as talented as anyone else,” coach Gary Peterson said. “It’s really a level of confidence. When you start to roll, you get more aggressive, more confident, and that’s probably what happened out there.” Robbins, from Village Christian of Sun Valley, remembered playing against freshman Michael Notaro (Westlake) and sophomore Willy Cabrera (Chatsworth). “I knew that they were good hitters,” Robbins said. “I got Willy (Cabrera) out, but I left a curveball up for Michael (Notaro). He got the best of me there.” Notaro singled in his only at-bat against Robbins, who took the loss in the 12-1 defeat to Pierce. Cabrera went 0 for 1. Robbins is the Cougars’ top pitcher with a 4-2 record. He leads the team with 32 innings pitched.

first_imgDONEGAL TD Charlie McConalogue has described a proposal by the Labour Party’s Aodhán Ó Riordáin to cut chaplaincy services from VECs and community schools as the latest front in the party’s ‘Culture War’, criticising the plan as ‘typically myopic and mean spirited’.Deputy McConalogue told Donegal Daily: “The attempt of the Labour Party to remove all trace of religious faith from public life in Ireland is well understood, however the latest front in this Culture War marks a new low.“Deputy Aodhán Ó Riordáin’s proposal to cancel funding for chaplaincy services in VECs and community schools comes hot on the heels of the Labour Party’s dismantling of the school counsellor system and shows a shocking disregard for the effect that these decisions are having on vulnerable students.” “As someone with a background in education, you would expect Deputy Ó Riordáin to understand that the chaplaincy service in these institutions is more about student support than anything else.“Since his party demolished the student counsellor system, these individuals have taken on a more important pastoral support role than ever before.“Unfortunately, it appears that such considerations take a back seat when it comes to the Labour Party’s prosecution of their Culture War. The proposal is myopic and mean spirited and I am calling on the Minister for Education to move quickly to dissociate himself and his department from it.”  ‘LABOUR’S BID TO REMOVE RELIGION FROM SCHOOLS IS NEW LOW’ – McCONALOGUE was last modified: September 3rd, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Charlie McConaloguecutseducationLabour partylast_img read more

What Information Should Your Business Plan Include?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It’s easy to know you need a business plan, but it’s harder to know exactly what to include.Business plans tend to follow a standard format, and many online resources and templates online can be adapted for your operation. Make your plan as simple or as complex as you like. The main goal is to create a plan that is useful to you and meets your needs.At Farm Credit Mid-America, we recommend including the following components in your business plan:Operation overview. This is the “elevator pitch” about your farm. Describe the basics of your operation related to your mission and objectives, crops you produce and acreage.Ownership summary. Include information about ownership and company structure. With any type of business, different owners bring different expertise. It’s always good to evaluate each owner’s strengths and what he or she brings to the operation.Strengths and weaknesses. Identify ways to use your ownership team’s strengths to your advantage and plan for ways to overcome any weaknesses in your operation.Sales and marketing strategy. Once you have identified your operation’s strengths, look for opportunities to leverage them to your competitive advantage as you create sales and marketing strategies.Financials (budget and balance sheet). This is the most important part of your business plan. Include a budget and a balance sheet that reflects your assets, liabilities and net worth.Goals. Research has shown that the simple act of recording goals will increase the likelihood of achieving them.In the budget section, project income and expenses for the upcoming year. This is not a time to be optimistic. It is best to plan for the worst-case scenario. Try to avoid underestimating expenses or overestimating income.The balance sheet helps you understand and evaluate working capital and net worth. Comparing balance sheets year-over-year offers a good picture of how your operation is progressing toward your goals. Your net worth should increase steadily each year. If not, that’s a red flag.Write down both short- and long-term goals, such as purchasing a new combine or paying down debt. Your goals should be SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timebound). Remember to involve all owners in identifying and setting goals.Also, identify risks that may impede your goals and create a contingency plan for them. The more you prepare for challenges, the easier they will be to deal with when they do occur. For example, crop insurance is one smart way to mitigate damages from drought, flooding and other natural disasters.Including the above components will ensure your business plan works hard for you and your operation. Be sure to update your information and revisit your plan on a regular basis. An accurate and updated business plan is a powerful tool that can open up many opportunities.AUDIO: The Ohio Ag Net’s Ty Higgins visits with Wendy Osborn of Farm Credit Mid-America about putting together a farm business plan. Wendy Osborn FCMA Business Plan 1.12.17last_img read more
