Netflix CEO/CFO To Do Live Video Discussion With Moderators In Lieu Of Regular Earnings Call
Netflix announced on Tuesday that it will post its second-quarter 2013 financial results and business outlook on Monday, July 22nd at about 1:05 PM Pacific Time.
Investors will no doubt be eager to hear of the company’s performance in relation to its original shows like House of Cards, Hemlock Grove and Arrested Development, and how these have impacted new subscriptions.
House of Cards already has a second season in the works, and the company recently announced the renewals of both Hemlock Grove and the upcoming Orange is the New Black, indicating how serious it really is about original programming as it pertains to the future of Netflix. While nothing has been announced, Netflix has also expressed interest (as has the show’s creator) in bringing back Arrested Development.
Interestingly, rather than doing a traditional earnings call, Netflix has elected to provide a live video discussion featuring CEO Reed Hastings and CFO David Wells to be moderated by BTIG Resarch’s Rich Greenfield and CNBC’s Julia Boorstin. The executives will be answering questions submitted by email and Twitter. These can be submitted to Greenfield at firstname.lastname@example.org or @RichBTIG or Boorstin at Julia.email@example.com or @JBoorstin.
According to Netflix, the moderators will incorporate as many submitted questions into the discussion as time allows.
If you wish to watch the discussion live, you will be able to find it on Netflix’s Investor Relations page.
