Overcharging Doesn't Pay: Ticketmaster Lose A Billion Dollars
The loss is a result from the ticketing company taking an impairment charge to account for its falling share price since spinning off from IAC/InterActiveCorp last August. The $1.1 billion goodwill write-down reflected the decline in the company's stock price, which debuted at $20 when it spun off from IAC/InterActiveCorp.
Ticketmaster Entertainment shares closed today (March 19) down 3 cents at $4.09 before the earnings were announced. Free cash flow increased to $49 million from negative $15 million in the same period a year ago. - more on this story
