To calculate: The vertical analysis of an provided income statement for Netflix, Inc. for the year December 31,2013 from the consolidated statements of operations of Netflix Inc.


Given Information:

The consolidated statement of operation of Netflix, Inc.

Netflix, Inc. Consolidated statements of operations (in thousands) ($)
Revenue $4,374,562
Cost of revenues $3,083,256
Technology and development $503,889
General administrative $180,301
Operating income $228,347

Income before income taxes $171,074
Provision for income taxes $58,671
Net income $112,403

Formula used:

Follow the steps to prepare a vertical analysis of an income statement:

Step 1: Use the percentage formula, Rate=Portion÷Base, to determine the rate of each item on the income statement. Net sales items are used as base and each items as portion.

Step 2: Round each answer to the nearest tenth of a percent.

Step 3: Count the percentage of each statement item in a column to the right of the amount.


Take revenues as the base parameter to calculate the percentages. Mark Revenues as 100%.

Compute percentage of cost of revenues by substituting cost of revenues to $3,083,256 and Revenues to $4,374,562

%of Cost of revenues=Cost of revenuesRevenues×100=$3,083,256$4,374,562×100=70.48%

Compute percentage of marketing by substituting marketing to $503,889 and Revenues to $4,374,562

%of Marketing=MarketingRevenues×100=$503,889$4,374,562×100=11.5%

Compute percentage of technology and development by substituting technology and development to $378,769 and Revenues to $4,374,562

%of Technology and development=Technology and developmentRevenues×100=$378,769$4,374,562×100=8.6%

Compute general and administrative expenses by substituting general and administrative expenses to $180,301 and Revenues to $4,374,562

%of General and administrative expenses=General and administrative expensesRevenues×100=$180,301$4,374,562×100=4.1%

Compute percentage of operating income by substituting operating income to $228,347 and Revenues to $4,374,562

%of operating income=Operating incomeRevenues×100=$228,347$4,374,562×100=5.2%

Compute percentage of interest expense by substituting interest expenses to ($29,142) and Revenues to $4,374,562

%of interest expense=Interest expenseRevenues×100=($29,142)$4,374,562×100=(0.6%)

Compute percentage of interest and other by substituting interest and other to ($3,002) and Revenues to $4,374,562

%of interest and other expenses=Interest and other expensesRevenues×100=($3,002)$4,374,562×100=(0
