AMC NETWORKS INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)

Note 1. Description of Business and Basis of Presentation
Description of Business
AMC Networks Inc. ("AMC Networks") and its subsidiaries (collectively referred to as the "Company") own and operate entertainment businesses and assets.
Segment Reporting Changes
In the first quarter of 2021, the Company changed its presentation of operating segments, reflecting a reorganized operating structure focused on a multi-platform distribution approach to content monetization. The Company's streaming services and IFC Films, previously included in the International and Other segment, are now included within Domestic Operations (formerly referred to as the National Networks segment). In addition, certain corporate overhead costs will no longer be allocated to the operating segments. Operating segment information for the prior period has been recast to reflect these changes. The new reporting structure consists of the following two operating segments:
Domestic Operations: Includes activities of our five national programming networks, our streaming services, AMC Studios operation, IFC Films and AMC Broadcasting & Technology. Our national programming networks are AMC, WE tv, BBC AMERICA, IFC, and SundanceTV. Our streaming services consist of our targeted subscription streaming services (Acorn TV, Shudder, Sundance Now, and ALLBLK), AMC+ and other streaming initiatives. Our AMC Studios operation produces original programming for our programming networks and also licenses such programming worldwide. IFC Films is our film distribution business and AMC Networks Broadcasting & Technology is our technical services business, which primarily services most of the national programming networks.
International and Other: Includes AMC Networks International ("AMCNI"), our international programming businesses consisting of a portfolio of channels around the world and 25/7 Media (formerly Levity), our production services business. See Note 4 relating to the spin-off of the Levity comedy venues business.
Basis of Presentation
Principles of Consolidation
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of AMC Networks and its subsidiaries in which a controlling voting interest is maintained or variable interest entities ("VIEs") in which the Company has determined it is the primary beneficiary. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
Investments in business entities in which the Company lacks control but does have the ability to exercise significant influence over operating and financial policies are accounted for using the equity method of accounting.
Unaudited Interim Financial Statements
These condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") for interim financial information and Article 10 of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), and should be read in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2020 contained in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K ("2020 Form 10-K") filed with the SEC. The condensed consolidated financial statements presented in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are unaudited; however, in the opinion of management, such financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods presented.
The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that might be expected for future interim periods or for the full year ending December 31, 2021.
Risks and Uncertainties
The COVID-19 pandemic and measures to prevent its spread continue to affect our businesses in a number of ways, including adverse advertising sales impacts and delays in the creation and availability of our programming. The Company cannot reasonably predict the ultimate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the extent of any adverse impact on our business, results of operations and financial condition, which will depend on, among other things, the duration and spread of the pandemic, the impact of governmental regulations that have been, and may continue to be, imposed in response to the pandemic, the effectiveness of actions taken to contain or mitigate the outbreak, the availability, safety and efficacy of vaccines, and global economic conditions. The Company does not expect the COVID-19 pandemic and its related economic impact to affect its liquidity position or its ongoing ability to meet the covenants in its debt instruments.
Use of Estimates
6

AMC NETWORKS INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued)
(unaudited)
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent liabilities at the date of the financial statements; and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates and judgments inherent in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements include the useful lives and methodologies used to amortize and assess recoverability of program rights, the estimated useful lives of intangible assets and the valuation and recoverability of goodwill and intangible assets.
Recently Adopted Accounting Standards
Effective January 1, 2021, the Company adopted Financial Accounting Standard Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes. ASU 2019-12 removes certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740 - Income Taxes. The adoption of the standard did not have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.
Note 2. Revenue Recognition
Transaction Price Allocated to Future Performance Obligations
As of March 31, 2021, other than contracts for which the Company has applied the practical expedients, the aggregate amount of transaction price allocated to future performance obligations was not material to our consolidated revenues.
Contract Balances from Contracts with Customers
The following table provides information about receivables, contract assets, and contract liabilities from contracts with customers.
(In thousands)March 31, 2021December 31, 2020
Balances from contracts with customers:

     Contract assets, long-term (included in Other assets)942 942 
     Contract liabilities (Deferred revenue)76,787 71,048 
Revenue recognized for the three months ended March 31, 2021 relating to the contract liability at December 31, 2020 was $7.7 million.
Note 3. Net Income per Share
The following is a reconciliation between basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding:

Approximately 0.5 million and 1.3 million restricted stock units outstanding as of March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, respectively, have been excluded from diluted weighted average common shares outstanding since a performance condition for these awards had not been met in each of the respective periods. As of March 31, 2021 and March 31, 2020, 0.4 million and 0.4 million, respectively, of restricted stock units and stock options have been excluded from diluted weighted average common shares outstanding, as their impact would have been anti-dilutive.
Stock Repurchase Program
The Company's Board of Directors has authorized a program to repurchase up to $1.5 billion of its outstanding shares of common stock (the "Stock Repurchase Program"). The Stock Repurchase Program has no pre-established closing date and may be suspended or discontinued at any time. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company did not repurchase any shares of its Class A Common Stock. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had $135.3 million of authorization remaining for repurchase under the Stock Repurchase Program.

Note 4. Impairment and Other Charges
In March 2021, the Company completed a spin-off of the live comedy venue and talent management businesses ("LiveCo") of Levity Entertainment Group, LLC. In connection with the transaction, the Company effectively exchanged all of its rights and interests in LiveCo for the release of the Company's obligations, principally related to leases. As a result of this divestiture, the Company recognized a loss on the disposal of $16.1 million reflecting the net assets transferred (consisting of property and equipment, lease right-of-use assets and intangibles, partially offset by lease and other obligations), which is included in Impairment and other charges. The Company retained its interest in the production services business of Levity Entertainment Group, LLC, which was renamed 25/7 Media Holdings, LLC following the spin-off.
Note 5. Restructuring and Other Related Charges
Restructuring and other related charges of $8.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, consisted of $4.1 million of severance costs associated with the restructuring plan announced in November 2020 and $4.5 million at AMCNI related to the termination of distribution in certain international territories.
Restructuring and other related charges of $6.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020, primarily related to restructuring costs associated with the termination of distribution in certain territories, as well as severance and other personnel related costs associated with previously announced restructuring activities.

Licensed program rights21,352 97,069 118,421 
Program rights amortization$126,913 $97,069 $223,982 

The Company periodically reviews the programming usefulness of its licensed and owned original program rights based on several factors, including expected future revenue generation from airings on the Company's networks and other exploitation opportunities, ratings, type and quality of program material, standards and practices, and fitness for exhibition through various forms of distribution. If it is determined that film or other program rights have limited, or no, future programming usefulness, the useful life is updated, which generally results in a write-off of the unamortized cost to technical and operating expense in the consolidated statements of income. There were no program rights write-offs included in technical and operating expense for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.
Note 7. Investments
The Company holds several investments and loans in non-consolidated entities which are included in Other assets in the condensed consolidated balance sheet. Equity method investments were $95.3 million at March 31, 2021 and $69.5 million at December 31, 2020. In February 2021, the Company invested $25.5 million for an interest in a Toronto-based production company and studio, which is accounted for as an equity method investment.
Marketable Equity Securities
The Company classifies publicly traded investments with readily determinable fair values that are not accounted for under the equity method as marketable equity securities. Marketable equity securities are recorded at cost and adjusted to fair value at each reporting period. The changes in fair value between measurement dates are recorded in miscellaneous, net in the condensed consolidated statement of income. Investments in marketable equity securities were $11.2 million at March 31, 2021 and $62.4 million at December 31, 2020. In January 2021, the Company sold the remaining portion of one of its marketable securities with a carrying value of $51.0 million as of December 31, 2020, resulting in a realized loss of $5.4 million. There were no unrealized gains or losses on marketable equity securities for the three months ended March 31, 2021. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, unrealized losses on marketable equity securities were $1.1 million, included in miscellaneous, net in the condensed consolidated statement of income.
Non-marketable Equity Securities
The Company classifies investments without readily determinable fair values that are not accounted for under the equity method as non-marketable equity securities. The accounting guidance requires non-marketable equity securities to be recorded at cost and adjusted to fair value at each reporting period. However, the guidance allows for a measurement alternative, which is to record the investments at cost, less impairment, if any, and subsequently adjust for observable price changes of identical or similar investments of the same issuer. The Company applies this measurement alternative to its non-marketable equity securities. When an observable event occurs, the Company estimates the fair values of its non-marketable equity securities based on Level 2 inputs that are derived from observable price changes of similar securities adjusted for insignificant differences in rights and obligations. The changes in value are recorded in miscellaneous, net in the condensed consolidated statement of income.
Investments in non-marketable equity securities were $36.0 million at March 31, 2021 and $35.8 million at December 31, 2020. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company recognized impairment charges of $20.0 million related to the write-down of certain non-marketable equity securities, included in miscellaneous, net in the condensed consolidated statements of income.

As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, accumulated impairment charges in the International and Other segment totaled $123.1 million.
The reduction of $0.3 million in the carrying amount of goodwill for Domestic Operations is due to the realization of a tax benefit for the amortization of "second component" goodwill at SundanceTV. Second component goodwill is the amount of tax deductible goodwill in excess of goodwill for financial reporting purposes. In accordance with the authoritative guidance at the time of the SundanceTV acquisition, the tax benefits associated with this excess are applied to first reduce the amount of goodwill, and then other intangible assets for financial reporting purposes, if and when such tax benefits are realized in the Company's tax returns.
