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 27, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending October 3, 2015. 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 2014 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, 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. On June 29, 2015, the Company announced the realignment of two of its segments, Consumer Products and Interactive, into a new combined segment, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. The Company expects to begin reporting the combined segment in fiscal 2016.
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:

Acquisitions
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 may also receive up to $450 million of additional cash upon final determination of Maker's achievement of 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 majority of the purchase price has 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 included in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income for the quarter and nine months ended June 27, 2015 and June 28, 2014 was not material.

Venezuelan 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 generally 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 fluctuated based on Government-run auctions. The ability to convert currency in the SICAD 1 market was dependent on market factors and Government discretion. 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 fluctuated daily. The ability to convert in the SICAD 2 market was also dependent on market factors, including the availability of U.S. dollars. Although a small portion of the Company's cash may have been eligible to be exchanged at SICAD 1, the majority was only eligible for exchange at SICAD 2. Accordingly, 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 fiscal 2014 based on the SICAD 2 rate, which was 50.9 BsF per U.S. dollar at March 29, 2014.
In February 2015, the Government combined the SICAD 1 and SICAD 2 exchange mechanisms (SICAD) and introduced another exchange mechanism, SIMADI. The SIMADI exchange mechanism allows for trading BsF at prices set by the market. The Company does not believe it can successfully convert currency at the SICAD rate and therefore, in the second quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company began translating its BsF denominated net monetary assets at the SIMADI rate resulting in an immaterial loss included in "Costs and expenses" in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. The SIMADI rate on June 27, 2015 was 199.9 BsF per U.S. dollar and the Company had net monetary assets of approximately 2.2 billion BsF.

Other
In fiscal year 2014, the Company recognized $83 million of gains primarily due to the sale of a property and $29 million for a portion of a settlement of an affiliate contract dispute.

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 June 27, 2015, $214 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 June 27, 2015 by a significant margin, and specifically exclude certain entities, including the International Theme Parks, from any representations, covenants, or events of default.

Disneyland Paris    
In January 2015, the shareholders of Disneyland Paris approved a €1.0 billion recapitalization consisting of the following:
A €0.4 billion February 2015 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, the Company replaced its existing lines of credit with Disneyland Paris with a new €350 million line of credit bearing interest at EURIBOR plus 2% and maturing in 2023. The prior lines of credit were repaid, and there is no outstanding balance under the new line of credit at June 27, 2015. As of June 27, 2015, the total outstanding balance of loans provided by the Company to Disneyland Paris was €1.0 billion.
Following regulatory approval, the Company opened a mandatory tender offer to the other Disneyland Paris shareholders in April 2015 to purchase their shares at €1.25 per share, and the Company may be required to purchase up to €0.3 billion in shares. As of June 27, 2015, the Company has acquired €0.1 billion in shares, which increased the Company's effective ownership by an additional six percentage points. There was an appeal to the regulatory approval, and the tender offer will remain outstanding during the appeal process.
Following the completion of the mandatory tender offer and to offset the dilution caused by the loan conversion, the Company will offer the right to certain of the remaining Disneyland Paris shareholders to purchase shares from the Company at €1.25.
As of June 27, 2015, the Company has an 83% effective ownership interest in Disneyland Paris reflecting purchases in connection with the recapitalization discussed above. The Company’s final ownership interest following the recapitalization will depend on the number of Disneyland Paris shareholders that accept the Company’s tender offer and/or exercise their anti-dilution rights. The Company will have a minimum effective ownership interest of 54% after the recapitalization.
The Company has recognized approximately $400 million of deferred income tax assets on the difference between the Company’s tax basis in its investment in Disneyland Paris and the Company’s financial statement carrying value of Disneyland Paris. The Company will likely be required to write-off this deferred tax asset as a result of the recapitalization although it will depend on the final outcome of the tender offer and anti-dilution process including the determination of our final ownership interest.
The recapitalization is expected to be completed by the end of calendar 2015.

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort
At September 27, 2014, the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and the Company had a 52% and 48% equity interest in HKDL, respectively. In addition, 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. Because HKDL exceeded the performance target in fiscal 2014, HKSAR received additional shares, which increased their ownership interest to approximately 54%. Additional shares that may be issued in future years could decrease the Company’s equity interest by up to an additional 8 percentage points over a period no shorter than 17 years.
HKDL plans to build a third hotel at the resort, which is expected to open in 2017 and cost approximately $550 million. To fund the construction, the Company will contribute approximately $219 million of equity, 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
The Company and Shanghai Shendi (Group) Co., Ltd (Shendi) are constructing a Disney Resort (Shanghai Disney Resort) in the Pudong district of Shanghai that initially includes a theme park, two hotels and a retail, dining and entertainment area. Major construction work is anticipated to be complete by the end of calendar 2015 and the opening of the park is planned for spring 2016. Shanghai Disney Resort is owned through two joint venture companies, 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 designing, constructing and operating Shanghai Disney Resort.

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. Trial is set for February 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 June 27, 2015, the remaining debt service obligation guaranteed by the Company was $330 million, of which $64 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 $1.0 billion as of June 27, 2015. 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 June 27, 2015. The activity in the current period related to the allowance for credit losses was not material.
Income Taxes
During the nine months ended June 27, 2015, the Company increased its gross unrecognized tax benefits by $145 million to $948 million including an $85 million increase 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 $195 million, of which $83 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:
