The force is definitely with George Lucas. In the almost 50 years since he studied film at the University of Southern California and trekked to the coffeehouse-lined streets of San Francisco as a young film novice to watch short art house movies, Lucas has managed to amass a $3.2 billion empire. With a plethora of major motion picture directing credits to his name, and a diverse resume—which includes everything from writing and producing some of the most successful sci-fi films of all time to serving as the chairman and CEO of his own production company—the jack-of-all-trades has more than cemented his place in Hollywood history. On the heels of his latest labor of love, Red Tails and the recent 3D theatrical re-release of Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, BlackEnterprise.com Decodes the box office titan’s illustrious film career, philanthropic efforts and examines why the mastermind behind the first big budget all-Black action movie is no accidental billionaire. —Shydel James

Strong historical cash flows.

A banker will first look at your income statement and bottom line, add back a few things that are fairly essential to the cash flow analysis, such as depreciation, which is a non-cash expense.  They’ll use the business’ interest expense to come up with just a rudimentary cash flow number. “That’s important because bankers just want to have an idea of your capacity to repay their loan,” says Dillon. “So, the basic equation in a bankers mind is, ‘this is how much it’s going to cost for them to repay my loan.’”
