THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited; tabular dollars in millions, except for per share data)
 
1.
Principles of Consolidation
These Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) for interim financial information and the instructions to Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. We believe that we have included all normal recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim period. Operating results for the nine months ended July 2, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending October 1, 2016. Certain reclassifications have been made in the prior-year financial statements to conform to the current-year presentation.
These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s 2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
The Company enters into relationships or investments with other entities that may be a variable interest entity (VIE). A VIE is consolidated in the financial statements if the Company has the power to direct activities that most significantly impact the economic performance of the VIE and has the obligation to absorb losses or the right to receive benefits from the VIE that could potentially be significant to the VIE (as defined by ASC 810-10-25-38). Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort (HKDL) and Shanghai Disney Resort (collectively the International Theme Parks) are VIEs. Company subsidiaries (the Management Companies) have management agreements with the International Theme Parks, which provide the Management Companies, subject to certain protective rights of joint venture partners, with the ability to direct the day-to-day operating activities and the development of business strategies that we believe most significantly impact the economic performance of the International Theme Parks. In addition, the Management Companies receive management fees under these arrangements that we believe could be significant to the International Theme Parks. Therefore, the Company has consolidated the International Theme Parks in its financial statements.
The terms “Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our” are used in this report to refer collectively to the parent company and the subsidiaries through which our various businesses are actually conducted.
 
2.
Segment Information
The operating segments reported below are the segments of the Company for which separate financial information is available and for which segment results are evaluated regularly by the Chief Executive Officer in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance. Fiscal 2015 segment financial information has been restated to reflect the combination of the Consumer Products and Interactive segments into a single segment effective at the beginning of fiscal 2016.
Segment operating results reflect earnings before corporate and unallocated shared expenses, restructuring and impairment charges, interest income/(expense), income taxes and noncontrolling interests. Segment operating income includes equity in the income of investees. Corporate and unallocated shared expenses principally consist of corporate functions, executive management and certain unallocated administrative support functions.
Equity in the income of investees is included in segment operating income as follows:

Acquisitions
Vice/A&E
Vice is a media company targeting a millennial audience through news and pop culture content and creative brand integration. During the first quarter of fiscal 2016, A&E acquired an 8% interest in Vice in exchange for a 49.9% interest in one of A&E’s cable channels, H2, which has been rebranded as Viceland and programmed with Vice content. As a result of this exchange, A&E recognized a net non-cash gain based on the estimated fair value of H2. The Company’s share of the Vice Gain totaled $332 million and was recorded in "Equity in the income of investees" in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income in the first quarter of fiscal 2016. At July 2, 2016, A&E had a 20% interest in Vice.
In addition, during the first quarter of fiscal 2016, the Company acquired an 11% interest in Vice for $400 million of cash.
The Company accounts for its interests in A&E and Vice as equity method investments.
Maker Studios
On May 7, 2014, the Company acquired Maker Studios, Inc. (Maker), a leading network of online video content, for approximately $500 million of cash consideration. Maker shareholders were eligible to receive up to $450 million of additional cash upon Maker’s achievement of certain performance targets for calendar years 2014 and 2015. At the date of the acquisition, the Company recorded a $198 million liability for the fair value of the contingent consideration (determined by a probability weighting of potential payouts). In fiscal 2015, the Company paid $105 million, and in January 2016, the Company made a final payment of $70 million for the contingent consideration.

The Company had bank facilities for $1.5 billion and $2.25 billion, which were expiring in March 2016 and June 2017, respectively. These facilities were refinanced in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 and the maturities were extended to March 2017 and 2021, respectively. All of the above bank facilities allow for borrowings at LIBOR-based rates plus a spread depending on the credit default swap spread applicable to the Company’s debt, subject to a cap and floor that vary with the Company’s debt rating assigned by Moody’s Investors Service and Standard and Poor’s. The spread above LIBOR can range

from 0.23% to 1.63%. The Company also has the ability to issue up to $800 million of letters of credit under the facility expiring in March 2019, which if utilized, reduces available borrowings under this facility. As of July 2, 2016, $189 million of letters of credit were outstanding, of which none were issued under this facility. The facilities contain only one financial covenant, relating to interest coverage, which the Company met on July 2, 2016 by a significant margin, and specifically exclude certain entities, including the International Theme Parks, from any representations, covenants, or events of default.
On July 7, 2016, the Company issued $2.0 billion in debt under its U.S. medium-term note program. The proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes.

Disneyland Paris    
During calendar 2015, Disneyland Paris completed a recapitalization consisting of the following:
In February 2015, Disneyland Paris completed a €0.4 billion equity rights offering of which the Company funded €0.2 billion. The Company purchased shares that were unsubscribed by other Disneyland Paris shareholders, which increased the Company’s effective ownership by approximately four percentage points.
In February 2015, the Company converted €0.6 billion of its loans to Disneyland Paris into equity at a conversion price of €1.25 per share. The conversion increased the Company’s effective ownership by an additional 23 percentage points. In addition, Disneyland Paris repaid €0.3 billion that was outstanding under then existing lines of credit from the Company. These lines of credit have been replaced by a new €0.4 billion line of credit from the Company bearing interest at EURIBOR plus 2% and maturing in 2023. There is €40 million outstanding under the new line of credit at July 2, 2016. As of July 2, 2016, the total outstanding balance of loans provided by the Company to Disneyland Paris was €1.0 billion.
In September 2015, the Company completed a mandatory tender offer to the other Disneyland Paris shareholders and acquired €0.1 billion in shares at €1.25 per share, which increased the Company’s effective ownership by an additional eight percentage points.

THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY

(unaudited; tabular dollars in millions, except for per share data)


In November 2015, to offset the dilution caused by the loan conversion Disneyland Paris shareholders purchased €0.05 billion in shares from the Company at €1.25 per share, which decreased the Company’s effective ownership by four percentage points.
As of July 2, 2016, the Company had an 81% effective ownership interest in Disneyland Paris.
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort
At July 2, 2016, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and the Company had 53% and 47% equity interests in HKDL, respectively. HKSAR holds a right to receive additional shares over time to the extent HKDL exceeds certain return on asset performance targets. The amount of additional shares HKSAR can receive is capped on both an annual and cumulative basis and could decrease the Company’s equity interest by up to an additional seven percentage points over a period no shorter than 16 years.
HKDL is building a third hotel at the resort, which is expected to open in 2017 and cost approximately $550 million. To fund the construction, the Company contributed $219 million of equity and HKSAR converted an equal amount of its outstanding loan to HKDL into equity. Additionally, the Company and HKSAR will provide shareholder loans of up to approximately $149 million and $104 million, respectively. The loans will mature on dates from fiscal 2022 through fiscal 2025 and bear interest at a rate of three month HIBOR plus 2%. At July 2, 2016, the outstanding balances of these loans provided by the Company and HKSAR were $62 million and $41 million, respectively.
Shanghai Disney Resort
On June 16, 2016, Shanghai Disney Resort opened in the Pudong district of Shanghai. The resort includes a theme park, two hotels and a retail, dining and entertainment complex.
Shanghai Disney Resort is owned through two joint venture companies, in which Shanghai Shendi (Group) Co., Ltd (Shendi) owns 57% and the Company owns 43%.

Commitments and Contingencies
Legal Matters
Beef Products, Inc. v. American Broadcasting Companies, Inc. On September 13, 2012, plaintiffs filed an action in South Dakota state court against certain subsidiaries and employees of the Company and others, asserting claims for defamation arising from alleged false statements and implications, statutory and common law product disparagement and tortious interference with existing and prospective business relationships. The claims arise out of ABC News reports published in March and April 2012 about a product, Lean Finely Textured Beef, that was included in ground beef and hamburger meat. Plaintiffs’ complaint sought actual and consequential damages in excess of $400 million (which in March 2016 they asserted could be as much as $1.9 billion), statutory damages (including treble damages) pursuant to South Dakota’s Agricultural Food Products Disparagement Act, and punitive damages. Trial is set for June 2017. At this time, the Company is not able to predict the ultimate outcome of this matter, nor can it estimate the range of possible loss.
The Company, together with, in some instances, certain of its directors and officers, is a defendant or codefendant in various other legal actions involving copyright, breach of contract and various other claims incident to the conduct of its businesses.
Management does not believe that the Company has incurred a probable material loss by reason of any of the above actions.
Contractual Guarantees
The Company has guaranteed bond issuances by the Anaheim Public Authority that were used by the City of Anaheim to finance construction of infrastructure and a public parking facility adjacent to the Disneyland Resort. Revenues from sales, occupancy and property taxes from the Disneyland Resort and non-Disney hotels are used by the City of Anaheim to repay the bonds. In the event of a debt service shortfall, the Company will be responsible to fund the shortfall. As of July 2, 2016, the remaining debt service obligation guaranteed by the Company was $321 million, of which $56 million was principal. To the extent that tax revenues exceed the debt service payments in subsequent periods, the Company would be reimbursed for any previously funded shortfalls. To date, tax revenues have exceeded the debt service payments for these bonds.
Long-Term Receivables and the Allowance for Credit Losses
The Company has accounts receivable with original maturities greater than one year related to the sale of television program rights and vacation ownership units. Allowances for credit losses are established against these receivables as necessary.
The Company estimates the allowance for credit losses related to receivables from the sale of television programs based upon a number of factors, including historical experience and the financial condition of individual companies with which we do business. The balance of television program sales receivables recorded in other non-current assets, net of an immaterial allowance for credit losses, was $0.9 billion as of July 2, 2016. The activity in the current period related to the allowance for credit losses was not material.
The Company estimates the allowance for credit losses related to receivables from sales of its vacation ownership units based primarily on historical collection experience. Estimates of uncollectible amounts also consider the economic environment and the age of receivables. The balance of mortgage receivables recorded in other non-current assets, net of a related allowance for credit losses of approximately 4%, was approximately $0.7 billion as of July 2, 2016. The activity in the current period related to the allowance for credit losses was not material.
Income Taxes
During the nine months ended July 2, 2016, the Company decreased its gross unrecognized tax benefits by $58 million to $854 million, including an $18 million decrease to income tax expense.
In the next twelve months, it is reasonably possible that our unrecognized tax benefits could change due to resolutions of open tax matters. These resolutions would reduce our unrecognized tax benefits by approximately $152 million, of which $46 million would reduce our income tax expense and effective tax rate if recognized.

11. Fair Value Measurements
Fair value is defined as the amount that would be received for selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants and is classified in one of the following three categories:
Level 1 - Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets
Level 2 - Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets
Level 3 - Valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable
The Company’s assets and liabilities measured at fair value are summarized in the following tables by fair value measurement Level:

 The fair values of Level 2 derivatives are primarily determined by internal discounted cash flow models that use observable inputs such as interest rates, yield curves and foreign currency exchange rates. Counterparty credit risk, which is mitigated by master netting agreements and collateral posting arrangements with certain counterparties, did not have a material impact on derivative fair value estimates.
Level 2 borrowings, which include commercial paper and U.S. medium-term notes, are valued based on quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets.

The fair value of the Level 3 other liabilities represented the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration for Maker, which was settled in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.
Level 3 borrowings, which include International Theme Park borrowings and other foreign currency denominated borrowings, are generally valued based on historical market transactions, prevailing market interest rates and the Company’s current borrowing cost and credit risk.
The Company’s financial instruments also include cash, cash equivalents, receivables and accounts payable. The carrying values of these financial instruments approximate the fair values.
The Company also has assets that are required to be recorded at fair value on a non-recurring basis when the estimated future cash flows provide indicators that the asset may be impaired. During the quarter and nine months ended July 2, 2016, the Company recorded film production impairment charges of $49 million and $79 million, respectively. At July 2, 2016, the aggregate carrying value of the films for which we prepared the fair value analyses in fiscal 2016 was $254 million. The impairment charges are reported in "Cost of services" and "Restructuring and impairment charges" in the Consolidated Statements of Income. The film impairment charges reflected the excess of the unamortized costs of the impaired films over their estimated fair value using discounted cash flows, which is a Level 3 valuation technique.

12. Derivative Instruments
The Company manages its exposure to various risks relating to its ongoing business operations according to a risk management policy. The primary risks managed with derivative instruments are interest rate risk and foreign exchange risk.
