Item Description The company
Equity in the income (loss) of investees, net This item represents the entity’s proportionate share for the period of the net income (loss) of its investee (such as unconsolidated subsidiaries and joint ventures) to which the equity method of accounting is applied. Such amount typically reflects adjustments similar to those made in preparing consolidated statements, including adjustments to eliminate intercompany gains and losses, and to amortize, if appropriate, any difference between cost and underlying equity in net assets of the investee at the date of investment. Walt Disney Co.’s equity in the income (loss) of investees, net decreased from 2017 to 2018 and from 2018 to 2019.
Investments, equity basis This item represents the carrying amount on the entity’s balance sheet of its investment in common stock of an equity method investee. This is not an indicator of the fair value of the investment, rather it is the initial cost adjusted for the entity’s share of earnings and losses of the investee, adjusted for any distributions (dividends) and other than temporary impairment losses recognized. Walt Disney Co.’s investments, equity basis decreased from 2017 to 2018 but then slightly increased from 2018 to 2019.
ROA (equity method investments only) A profitability ratio calculated as equity in the income (loss) of investees, net divided by investments, equity basis. Walt Disney Co.’s ROA of equity method investments deteriorated from 2017 to 2018 but then slightly improved from 2018 to 2019.
