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 quarter and nine months ended June 28, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending September 27, 2014. 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 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
The Company enters into relationships or investments with other entities in which it does not have majority ownership. In certain instances, the entity in which the Company has a relationship or investment 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 (as defined by ASC 810-10-25-38) or the right to receive benefits from the VIE that could potentially be significant to the VIE. 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, although the Company has less than a 50% direct ownership interest in the International Theme Parks, 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. The Company reports the performance of its operating segments including equity in the income of investees. Equity in the income of investees included in segment operating results is as follows:

This charge is recorded in "Equity in the income of investees" in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income but has been excluded from segment operating income. See Note 3 for further discussion of the transaction.

(1) Studio Entertainment segment revenues and operating income include an allocation of Consumer Products revenues, which is meant to reflect royalties on sales of merchandise based on certain film properties.

Acquisitions
Maker Studios
On May 7, 2014, the Company acquired Maker Studios, Inc. (Maker), a leading network of online video content on YouTube, for approximately $500 million of cash consideration, subject to certain conditions and adjustments. Maker shareholders may also receive up to $450 million of additional cash if Maker achieves certain performance targets for calendar years 2014 and 2015.  The Company has recognized a $198 million liability for the fair value of the contingent consideration (determined by a probability weighting of potential payouts). Subsequent changes in the estimated fair value, if any, will be recognized in earnings. The Company is in the process of finalizing the valuation of the assets acquired, liabilities assumed and the fair value of the contingent consideration. The majority of the purchase price has initially been allocated to goodwill, which is not deductible for tax purposes. Goodwill reflects the synergies expected from enhancing the presence of Disney's franchises and brands through the use of Maker's distribution platform, advanced technology and business intelligence capability. The revenue and net income of Maker, which are included in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income from the closing through June 28, 2014, are not material.

Lucasfilm
On December 21, 2012, the Company acquired Lucasfilm Ltd. LLC (Lucasfilm), a privately held entertainment company. This acquisition will allow Disney to utilize Lucasfilm's content across our multiple platforms, businesses and markets, which we believe will generate growth as well as significant long-term value.
Under the terms of the merger agreement, Disney issued 37.1 million shares and made a cash payment of $2.2 billion.  Based on the $50.00 per share closing price of Disney shares on December 21, 2012, the transaction had a value of $4.1 billion.
The following table summarizes our allocation of the purchase price to the tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The excess of the purchase price over those fair values and the related deferred income tax liability was allocated to goodwill, which is not deductible for tax purposes.

Intangible assets primarily consist of intellectual property based on the Star Wars franchise with an estimated useful life of approximately 40 years. The goodwill reflects the value to Disney from leveraging Lucasfilm intellectual property across our distribution channels, taking advantage of Disney's established global reach.

Hulu
On October 5, 2012, Hulu LLC (Hulu) redeemed Providence Equity Partners' 10% equity interest in Hulu for $200 million, increasing the Company's ownership interest in Hulu from 29% to 32%.  In connection with the transaction, Hulu incurred a charge of approximately $174 million primarily related to employee equity-based compensation and borrowed $338 million under a five-year term loan, which was guaranteed by the Company and the other partners. The Company's share of the charge totaled $55 million and was recorded in equity in the income of investees in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
 
In July 2013, Fox Entertainment Group, NBCUniversal and the Company agreed to provide Hulu with $750 million in cash to fund Hulu's operations and investments for future growth, of which the Company's share is $257 million. To date, the Company has contributed $134 million, increasing its ownership to 33%, and will continue to guarantee its share of Hulu's $338 million term loan.
  
The Company accounts for its interest in Hulu as an equity method investment.

Venezuela foreign currency loss
The Company has operations in Venezuela, including film and television distribution and merchandise licensing and has net monetary assets denominated in Venezuelan bolivares (BsF), which primarily consist of cash. The Venezuelan government (Government) has foreign currency exchange controls, which centralize the purchase and sale of all foreign currency at an official rate determined by the Government, currently 6.3 BsF per U.S. dollar. Although the Company has historically been unable to repatriate its cash at the official rate, we translated our net monetary assets at the official rate through December 28, 2013. In January 2014, the Government announced that currency arising from certain transactions could be exchanged at an alternative rate (SICAD 1), which fluctuates based on Government-run auctions. The ability to convert currency in the SICAD 1 market is dependent on market factors and Government discretion, and the Company does not believe it can successfully convert material amounts of currency at this rate. In March 2014, the Government launched a new currency exchange market (SICAD 2), which allowed entities to submit a daily application to exchange foreign currency with financial institutions that are registered with the Venezuelan central bank. Foreign currency exchange rates under SICAD 2 fluctuate daily. The ability to convert in the SICAD 2 market is also dependent on market factors including the availability of U.S. dollars. Although a small portion of the Company's cash may be eligible to be exchanged at SICAD 1, the majority is only eligible for exchange at SICAD 2. Accordingly, as of March 29, 2014, the Company began translating its BsF denominated net monetary assets at the SICAD 2 rate resulting in a loss of $143 million in the second quarter of the current year based on the SICAD 2 rate at March 29, 2014, which was 50.9 BsF per U.S. dollar. The SICAD 2 rate on June 28, 2014 was 50.0 BsF per U.S. dollar and the Company had net monetary assets of approximately 1.2 billion BsF on June 28, 2014.

Celador litigation charge
In connection with the Company's litigation with Celador International Ltd., the Company recorded a $321 million charge in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

ESPN STAR Sports
On November 7, 2012, the Company sold its 50% equity interest in ESPN STAR Sports (ESS) to the joint venture partner of ESS for $335 million resulting in a gain of $219 million ($125 million after tax and allocation to noncontrolling interest).

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. The facilities contain only one financial covenant, relating to interest coverage, which the Company met on June 28, 2014 by a significant margin, and specifically exclude certain entities, including the International Theme Parks, from any representations, covenants, or events of default.

Disneyland Paris
The Company has provided Disneyland Paris €1.7 billion ($2.3 billion) of intercompany loans and a line of credit totaling €250 million ($340 million). The balance outstanding under the line of credit was €100 million ($136 million) at June 28, 2014.
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort
In July 2009, the Company entered into a capital realignment and expansion plan for HKDL with the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), HKDL’s majority shareholder. The expansion cost approximately $0.5 billion, was completed in 2013 and was financed equally by the Company and HKSAR. As a result the Company’s equity interest in HKDL increased from 43% to 48%.
In addition, HKSAR holds a right to receive additional shares over time if HKDL exceeds certain return on asset performance targets.  The amount of additional shares HKSAR can receive varies to the extent certain performance targets are exceeded but is capped on both an annual and cumulative basis. Based on the number of shares currently outstanding, these additional shares could decrease the Company’s equity interest to no less than 38% over a period no shorter than 18 years. HKDL may begin to exceed the performance targets in fiscal 2014, in which case HKSAR would be entitled to receive

additional equity interests beginning in 2015. The maximum additional interest which HKSAR can receive in 2015 would reduce the Company's equity interest by approximately 1 percentage point.
In February 2014, HKDL announced a plan to build a third hotel at the resort expected to open in 2017 at a cost of approximately $550 million. In July 2014, HKSAR Legislative Council approved the financing of the hotel construction, in which the Company will provide approximately $219 million of equity contributions and HKSAR will convert 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%.
Shanghai Disney Resort
In fiscal 2011, the Company and Shanghai Shendi (Group) Co., Ltd. (Shendi) received Chinese central government approval of an agreement to build and operate a Disney Resort (Shanghai Disney Resort) in the Pudong district of Shanghai for a planned investment of approximately 29 billion yuan ($4.7 billion). Shanghai Disney Resort is owned by a joint venture, in which Shendi owns 57% and the Company owns 43%. An additional joint venture, in which the Company has a 70% interest and Shendi a 30% interest, is responsible for creating, constructing and operating Shanghai Disney Resort. Construction on the project, which includes a theme park, two hotels and a retail, dining and entertainment area, began in April 2011, and the resort opening date is expected to be announced in early calendar 2015.
In March 2014, the Company and Shendi received Chinese central government approval of an agreement to increase the planned investment by approximately 5 billion yuan ($0.8 billion), primarily to fund additional attractions, entertainment and other offerings to increase capacity at the theme park. The total investment in Shanghai Disney Resort will be funded in accordance with each partner’s ownership percentage, with approximately 67% from equity contributions and 33% from shareholder loans.

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 that discussed the subject of labeling requirements for production processes related to a product one plaintiff produces that is added to ground beef before sale to consumers. Plaintiffs seek actual and consequential damages in excess of $400 million, statutory damages (including treble damages) pursuant to South Dakota's Agricultural Food Products Disparagement Act, and punitive damages. On July 9, 2013, the Company moved in state court to dismiss all claims and on March 27, 2014, the state court dismissed certain common law disparagement counts as preempted by South Dakota’s produce disparagement statute, but denied the motion on the remaining claims. On April 23, 2014, the Company petitioned the South Dakota Supreme Court to allow a discretionary appeal seeking reversal of the state court's order permitting the remaining common law disparagement claims to proceed and also seeking reversal of its decision to allow certain claims to proceed as defamation claims. On May 22, 2014, the South Dakota Supreme Court denied the Company’s petition. On May 23, 2014, the Company answered the Complaint. 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 June 28, 2014, the remaining debt service obligation guaranteed by the Company was $339 million, of which $72 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 within the Media Networks segment and vacation ownership units within the Parks and Resorts segment. 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 $0.8 billion as of June 28, 2014. 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 5%, was approximately $0.7 billion as of June 28, 2014. The activity in the current period related to the allowance for credit losses was not material.

 Income Taxes
During the nine months ended June 28, 2014, the Company decreased its gross unrecognized tax benefits by $365 million to $755 million with a resulting $19 million reduction 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 $58 million, of which $42 million would reduce our income tax expense and effective tax rate if recognized.
 
12. 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:
