2013 Everything You Wanted to Know about a P&L and Were Afraid to Ask
This session engages the evolution of the P&L (profit & loss statement) from a strictly print-based evaluation tool to one that's suited to all the permutations of the digital age. P&L models from four different presses of various sizes will be shown, some P&Ls will be demonstrated, and we'll discuss the goals and driving concepts behind each press's variant of the P&L. Panelists will talk about how decisions that go into the P&L are made, such as print run projections, how overhead is addressed, how the P&L is integrated with production estimates and the P&L's use for both budgeting and retrospective performance.
Chair: Rebecca Schrader, Director of Finance & Operations, MIT Press
Panelists: Tom Helleberg, Business Manager, New York University Press
John Rollins, CFO, Yale University Press
Fran Toolan, Chief Igniter, Firebrand Technologies
