Over the seven years since its founding in 2010, Spartan Race grew to be the world's most popular obstacle course race provider. Spartan's CEO and founder was contemplating an initial public offering but was unsure how the new global revenue recognition standard that the company was in the process of implementing would affect potential investors' perception of its financial performance. Spartan had developed numerous revenue streams despite being a relatively young company. The primary responsibility for determining how Spartan's varied revenue generating activities would be accounted for under the new accounting standard fell to its director of financial planning and controller. This case is part of the MIT Sloan free case collection (visit for more information on the collection).
