Textbook Problem


After a successful first year, Cam and Anna decide to expand Front Row Entertainment’s operations by becoming a venue operator as well as a tour promoter. A venue operator contracts with promoters to rent the venue (which can range from amphitheaters to indoor arenas to night-clubs) for events on specific dates. In addition to receiving revenue from renting the venue, venue operators also provide services such as concessions, parking, security, and ushering services. By vertically integrating their business, Cam and Anna can reduce the expense that they pay to rent venues. In addition, they will generate additional revenue by providing services to other tour promoters.

After a little investigation, Cam and Anna locate a small venue operator that owns The Chicago Music House, a small indoor arena with a rich history in the music industry. The current owner has experienced severe health issues and has let the arena fall into a state of disrepair. However, he would like the arena to be preserved and its musical legacy to continue. After a short negotiation, on January 1, 2020, Front Row purchases the venue by paying $10,000 in cash and signing a 15-year 10% note for $380,000. In addition, Front Row purchases the right to use the "Chicago Music House" name for $25,000 cash.

During the month of January 2020, Front Row incurred the following as they renovated the arena and prepared it for the first major event scheduled for February.

Jan. 5 Paid $21,530 to repair damage to the roof of the arena.

10 Paid $45,720 to remodel the stage area.

21 Purchased concessions equipment (e.g., popcorn poppers, soda machines) for $12,350.

Renovations were completed on January 28, and the first concert was held in the arena on February 1. The arena is expected to have a useful life of 30 years and a residual value of $35,000. The concessions equipment will have a useful life of 5 years and a residual value of $250.
