  • Net revenue is expected to be approximately $5.075 billion.
    • Change in deferred net revenue (online-enabled games) is expected to be approximately $25 million.
  • Net income is expected to be approximately $1.125 billion.

    • Change in deferred net revenue (online-enabled games) is expected to be approximately $205 million.
  • Net loss is expected to be approximately ($57) million.
  • Loss per share is expected to be approximately ($0.18).

Impact of Recently Adopted Accounting Standard

At the beginning of fiscal 2018, EA adopted FASB ASU 2016-09, related to stock-based compensation. In the first quarter of fiscal 2018, we recorded a $39 million benefit to income tax expense that would have been recognized in additional paid-in capital under rules in effect prior to adoption.

This pronouncement also requires EA to change how it reports the cash effects of stock-based compensation in the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flow. It does not impact total cash and cash flow, but it does increase operating cash flow and decrease cash flow from financing activities. The following table reflects the impact of this standard on operating cash flow for the periods presented:

   
Three Months Ended June 30,
(in $ millions) 2017 2016
Operating cash flow under historical GAAP 42 (248 )
 
Operating cash flow under ASU 2016-09 176 (118 )

Forward-Looking Statements

Some statements set forth in this release, including the information relating to EA’s fiscal 2018 expectations under the heading “Business Outlook as of July 27, 2017,” contain forward-looking statements that are subject to change. Statements including words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate” or “expect” and statements in the future tense are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are preliminary estimates and expectations based on current information and are subject to business and economic risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events or actual future results to differ materially from the expectations set forth in the forward-looking statements.

Some of the factors which could cause the Company’s results to differ materially from its expectations include the following: sales of the Company’s titles; the Company’s ability to develop and support digital products and services, including managing online security and privacy; the Company’s ability to manage expenses; the competition in the interactive entertainment industry; the effectiveness of the Company’s sales and marketing programs; timely development and release of Electronic Arts’ products; the Company’s ability to realize the anticipated benefits of acquisitions; the consumer demand for, and the availability of an adequate supply of console hardware units; the Company’s ability to predict consumer preferences among competing platforms; the Company’s ability to develop and implement new technology; foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations; general economic conditions; and other factors described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2017.

These forward-looking statements are current as of July 27, 2017. Electronic Arts assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these forward-looking statements. In addition, the preliminary financial results set forth in this release are estimates based on information currently available to Electronic Arts.

While Electronic Arts believes these estimates are meaningful, they could differ from the actual amounts that Electronic Arts ultimately reports in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2017. Electronic Arts assumes no obligation and does not intend to update these estimates prior to filing its Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2017.
