Video Games
A VIDEO GAME is an electronic game that involves interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a video device such as a TV screen or computer monitor . The word _video_ in _video game_ traditionally referred to a raster display device, but as of the 2000s, it implies any type of display device that can produce two- or three-dimensional images . Some theorists categorize video games as an art form , but this designation is controversial. The electronic systems used to play video games are known as platforms ; examples of these are personal computers and video game consoles . These platforms range from large mainframe computers to small handheld computing devices . Specialized video games such as arcade games , in which the video game components are housed in a large, typically coin-operated chassis, while common in the 1980s in video arcades , have gradually declined due to the widespread availability of affordable home video game consoles (e.g., PlayStation 4 , Xbox One

and Nintendo

Earnings Before Interest And Taxes
In accounting and finance, EARNINGS BEFORE INTEREST AND TAXES (EBIT), is a measure of a firm's profit that includes all expenses except interest and income tax expenses. It is the difference between operating revenues and operating expenses. When a firm does not have non-operating income , then OPERATING _INCOME_ is sometimes used as a synonym for EBIT and operating profit . EBIT = revenue – operating expenses (OPEX) Operating income = revenue – operating expenses A professional investor contemplating a change to the capital structure of a firm (e.g., through a leveraged buyout ) first evaluates a firm's fundamental earnings potential (reflected by earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA ) and EBIT), and then determines the optimal use of debt vs. equity. To calculate EBIT, expenses (e.g. the cost of goods sold , selling and administrative expenses) are subtracted from revenues. Net income is later obtained by subtracting interest and taxes from the result

Net Income
In business , NET INCOME (TOTAL COMPREHENSIVE INCOME, NET EARNINGS, NET PROFIT, informally, BOTTOM LINE) is an entity's income minus cost of goods sold , expenses and taxes for an accounting period . It is computed as the residual of all revenues and gains over all expenses and losses for the period, and has also been defined as the net increase in shareholders\' equity that results from a company's operations. In the context of the presentation of financial statements , the IFRS Foundation defines net income as synonymous with PROFIT AND LOSS. Net income is a distinct accounting concept from profit but the same as net profit. Net income can also be calculated by adding a company's operating income to non-operating income and then subtracting off taxes. CONTENTS * 1 Definition * 2 An equation for net income * 3 Other terms * 4 See also * 5 References DEFINITION Net income can be distributed among holders of common stock as a dividend or held by the firm as an addition to retained earnings . As profit and earnings are used synonymously for income (also depending on UK and US usage), NET EARNINGS and NET PROFIT are commonly found as synonyms for net income. Often, the term INCOME is substituted for net income, yet this is not preferred due to the possible ambiguity

Subsidiary
A SUBSIDIARY, SUBSIDIARY COMPANY or DAUGHTER COMPANY is a company that is owned or controlled by another company, which is called the _parent company _, _parent_, or _holding company _. The subsidiary can be a company, corporation , or limited liability company . In some cases it is a government or state-owned enterprise . In some cases, particularly in the music and book publishing industries, subsidiaries are referred to as imprints . In the United States railroad industry, an OPERATING SUBSIDIARY is a company that is a subsidiary but operates with its own identity, locomotives and rolling stock . In contrast, a NON-OPERATING SUBSIDIARY would exist on paper only (i.e., stocks, bonds, articles of incorporation) and would use the identity of the parent company . Subsidiaries are a common feature of business life, and most multinational corporations organize their operations in this way. Examples include holding companies such as Berkshire Hathaway
Berkshire Hathaway
, Leucadia National Corporation
Corporation
, Time Warner
Time Warner
, or Citigroup
Citigroup
; as well as more focused companies such as IBM
