Analysis of Revenues
Accounting Policy on Revenue Recognition
Revenue is primarily recognized at a point in time when control of the promised goods is transferred to the customers in an amount that reflects the consideration Micron expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods. Contracts with Micron’s customers are generally short-term in duration at fixed, negotiated prices with payment generally due shortly after delivery. Micron estimates a liability for returns using the expected value method based on historical rates of return. In addition, Micron generally offers price protection to the distributors, which is a form of variable consideration that decreases the transaction price. Micron uses the expected value method, based on historical price adjustments and current pricing trends, to estimate the amount of revenue recognized from sales to distributors. Differences between the estimated and actual amounts are recognized as adjustments to revenue.
