But that seems like you should deduct intangibles, I mean, deduct them from revenue. I guess the reason you didn't deduct them in the Wrigley's example is that they are already included in cost of sales?

The company I am working on breaks out R&D as a seperate item, so I deduct that on the defensive statement, and then after I depreciate it, I deduct it again on the enterprising statement.

I think this is right?

Thanks for your help, Mr Heiserman.
