This excerpt taken from the ATVI 10-Q filed May 8, 2009.
For the quarter ended March 31, 2009, net revenues from Activision, Blizzard, and Distribution segments increased compared to the same period in 2008. These increases were principally attributable to the following:
· As a result of the Business Combination, net revenues of $330 million from the businesses operated by Activision, Inc. prior to the Business Combination were included in the three months ended March 31, 2009, but not for the same period in 2008;
· The catalog sales of Guitar Hero World Tour and Call of Duty: World at War, the new releases of Guitar Hero: Metallica in North America, Monsters vs. Aliens worldwide, and Call of Duty: World at War map pack, and the catalog sales of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare;
· Sales of the second expansion pack of World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, which continues to be the #1 best selling PC title in dollars in the U.S. for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 according to the NPD Group; and
· As a result of the Business Combination, Distribution net revenues of $85 million were included in the three months ended March 31, 2009, but not for the same period in 2008.
We estimate that changes in foreign exchange rates had an approximately $87 million unfavorable impact to Activision Blizzards consolidated net revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2009 compared to the same period in 2008 as the U.S. dollar strengthened in relation to the British pound, euro, Australian dollar, Korean won, and Swedish krona.
