Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

Toys “R” Us, Inc. (the “Company” or “Parent”) is providing certain lenders and analysts the following information, as of February 1, 2014, related to intercompany loans made by and between the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary, Toys “R” Us-Delaware, Inc. (“Toys-Delaware”):

The Parent had a net payable to Toys-Delaware of $381 million as of February 1, 2014. The net payable consists of three components: $783 million in aggregate long-term notes payable to Toys-Delaware, $316 million short-term loans receivable from Toys-Delaware, and $86 million of other net intercompany receivables from Toys-Delaware, primarily related to insurance obligations of the Parent where Toys-Delaware is the primary obligor.

On the Parent’s balance sheet as of February 1, 2014 presented in the Toys “R” Us, Inc. 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 1, 2014, the $316 million short-term loans receivable is recorded in “Due from subsidiary” as a current asset. The remaining $697 million long-term net payable is reflected, along with other balances and transactions, in “Investments in and advances to subsidiaries, net” as a long-term liability. Additional detail on this line item is presented below:

On the Toys-Delaware balance sheet as of February 1, 2014 contained within the Toys “R” Us, Inc. 8-K dated May 2, 2014, the long-term notes receivable of $783 million from Parent is reflected in “Due from affiliates, net” as a long-term asset. The “Due from affiliates, net” balance as of February 1, 2014 was $777 million. Additionally contained in this line item is a miscellaneous $4 million receivable from Parent and $10 million of payables to other subsidiaries of Parent. The $316 million short-term loans payable to Parent is reflected in “Short-term borrowings from Parent” as a current liability.
