WWE has since October 1999 been a publicly traded company, meaning that every Tom, Dick and Hunter can grab their Bowler hat, light up a pipe and apoplectically yell at their computer screens while the company’s share price tumbles… I have no idea how to trade stocks, in case that wasn’t already clear.
However, being a public company also means that WWE is subject to a bunch of tedious regulations. One of these less glamorous requirements is that it file financial reports every three months, reflecting its earnings, business projections and other market-sensitive information.
Many of these reports consist of little more than a confusing barrage of numbers and dollar signs. Many, many dollar signs if Vince has anything to say about it.
But as with most things in life, context is everything. And often the information that isn’t readily apparent ultimately turns out to be the most important. It can reveal a company’s health, its motivations and, in certain instances, provide some insight into its future plans.
On the morning of October 25, WWE filed its third quarter earnings report. Accompanying this report was a press release, providing some additional detail to its more salient points.
So pour yourself a strong cup of coffee, brush aside that number-induced delirium and be prepared to possibly catch a glimpse into WWE‘s future. Here are the five observations we gleaned from the company’s Q3 results.
