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 six months ended March 30, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending September 28, 2013. 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 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
The Company enters into relationships or investments with other entities in which it does not have majority ownership or control. 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 or the right to receive benefits from the VIE that could potentially be significant to the VIE. Although the Company has less than a 50% direct ownership interest in Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and Shanghai Disney Resort (collectively the "International Theme Parks"), they are VIEs, and given the nature of the Company’s relationships with these entities, which include management agreements, 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:

During the six months ended March 30, 2013, the Company recorded a $55 million charge for our share of expense related to an equity redemption at Hulu LLC (Hulu Equity Redemption). 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.

Acquisitions
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 closing price of Disney shares on December 21, 2012 of $50.00 per share, the transaction has a value of $4.1 billion.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited; tabular dollars in millions, except for per share data)


The Company is required to allocate the purchase price to the estimated fair value of the tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The excess of the purchase price over those fair values is recorded as goodwill. The Company is in the process of finalizing the valuation of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed.
The following table summarizes our allocation of the purchase price, which is subject to adjustment once the valuations are completed:
(in billions)
  Estimated 
Fair Value
Intangible assets
$
2.6

Goodwill
2.3

Deferred income taxes
(0.8
)
 
$
4.1

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. The goodwill recorded as part of this acquisition is not deductible for tax purposes.

The amounts of revenue and net loss of Lucasfilm included in the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statement of Income from the closing date through March 30, 2013 are not material.

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. 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.  The Company has guaranteed $107 million of a $338 million five-year term loan, which was used by Hulu to finance the transaction. The Company will continue to account for its interest in Hulu as an equity method investment.

Pursuant to a delisting offer process governed by Indian law, on February 2, 2012, the Company purchased publicly held shares and all of the shares held by the founder of UTV Software Communications Limited (UTV), a media and entertainment company headquartered and publicly traded in India, for $377 million. The Company also assumed approximately $300 million of UTV’s borrowings. The purchase increased the Company’s ownership interest to 93% from 50%. As a result, the Company changed its accounting for UTV from an equity method investment to a consolidated subsidiary. The acquisition of UTV supports the Company’s strategic priority of increasing its brand presence and reach in key international markets.

Upon consolidation, the Company recognized a non-cash gain of $184 million ($116 million after tax) as a result of adjusting the carrying value of the Company’s 50% equity investment to its estimated fair value of $405 million. The gain was recorded in “Other income/(expense), net” in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. The fair value was determined based on the Company’s internal valuation of the UTV business using an income approach (discounted cash flow model), which the Company believes provides the most appropriate indicator of fair value.

The Company allocated the purchase price to the estimated fair value of the tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The majority of the purchase price has been allocated to goodwill, which is not deductible for tax purposes. The goodwill reflects the synergies and increased Indian market penetration expected from combining the operations of UTV and the Company.

To date, the Company has paid $72 million to acquire an incremental 6% interest bringing its ownership percentage to 99%.

(1) The other activity is primarily the impact of foreign currency translation as a result of the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against the Japanese yen.

(2) The other activity is primarily market value adjustments for debt with qualifying hedges.

At September 29, 2012, the Company had two bank facilities, each for $2.25 billion, which are used to support commercial paper borrowings. One of the facilities expires in 2015 and the other in 2017. On March 15, 2013, the Company entered into a new $1.5 billion 364-day credit agreement with a syndicate of lenders.  These 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 public rating.  The spread above LIBOR can range from 0.23% to 1.93%.  The facilities contain only one financial covenant, relating to interest coverage, and specifically excludes certain entities, including the International Theme Parks, from any representations, covenants or events of default.

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 October 24, 2012, the Company removed the action to the United States District Court for the District of South Dakota, and on October 31, 2012, the Company moved to dismiss all claims. On November 28, 2012, plaintiffs filed motion to remand the case to state court, which is pending.
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.
Celador International Ltd. v. American Broadcasting Companies, Inc. 
In connection with the Company's litigation with Celador International Ltd., the Company established a reserve in the amount of $321 million, which was recorded in Other income/(expense), net, in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and paid in the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

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 March 30, 2013, the remaining debt service obligation guaranteed by the Company was $347 million, of which $78 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 program rights in the television syndication markets 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 syndication receivables recorded in other non-current assets, net of an immaterial allowance for credit losses, was $0.9 billion as of March 30, 2013. 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 March 30, 2013. The activity in the current period related to the allowance for credit losses was not material.
 
Income Taxes
During the six months ended March 30, 2013, the Company settled certain tax matters with various jurisdictions. As a result of these settlements, the Company reduced its unrecognized tax benefits by $71 million, including interest and penalties.
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 $16 million.
 
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. Assets and liabilities measured at fair value are classified in 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 has master netting arrangements by counterparty with respect to certain derivative contracts. Contracts in a liability position totaling $122 million and $153 million have been netted against contracts in an asset position in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at March 30, 2013 and September 29, 2012, respectively.
The fair values of Level 2 derivatives are primarily determined based on the present value of future cash flows using internal 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.
Level 3 borrowings, which include Hong Kong Disneyland 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 and liabilities that are required to be recorded at fair value on a non-recurring basis when certain circumstances occur. During the prior-year six months ended March 31, 2012, the Company recorded impairment charges of $117 million on film productions. These impairment charges are reported in “Costs and expenses” in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. The film impairment charges reflected the excess of the unamortized cost of the films

Interest Rate Risk Management
The Company is exposed to the impact of interest rate changes primarily through its borrowing activities. The Company’s objective is to mitigate the impact of interest rate changes on earnings and cash flows and on the market value of its borrowings. In accordance with its policy, the Company targets its fixed-rate debt as a percentage of its net debt between a minimum and maximum percentage. The Company typically uses pay-floating and pay-fixed interest rate swaps to facilitate its interest rate management activities.

The Company designates pay-floating interest rate swaps as fair value hedges of fixed-rate borrowings effectively converting fixed-rate borrowings to variable rate borrowings indexed to LIBOR. As of March 30, 2013 and September 29, 2012, the total notional amount of the Company’s pay-floating interest rate swaps was $5.6 billion and $3.1 billion, respectively. The following table summarizes adjustments related to fair value hedges included in net interest expense in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.

The Company may designate pay-fixed interest rate swaps as cash flow hedges of interest payments on floating-rate borrowings. Pay-fixed swaps effectively convert floating-rate borrowings to fixed-rate borrowings. The unrealized gains or losses from these cash flow hedges are deferred in AOCI and recognized in interest expense as the interest payments occur. The Company did not have pay-fixed interest rate swaps that were designated as cash flow hedges of interest payments at March 30, 2013 or at September 29, 2012.
Foreign Exchange Risk Management
The Company transacts business globally and is subject to risks associated with changing foreign currency exchange rates. The Company’s objective is to reduce earnings and cash flow fluctuations associated with foreign currency exchange rate changes, enabling management to focus on core business issues and challenges.
 
The Company enters into option and forward contracts that change in value as foreign currency exchange rates change to protect the value of its existing foreign currency assets, liabilities, firm commitments and forecasted but not firmly committed foreign currency transactions. In accordance with policy, the Company hedges its forecasted foreign currency transactions for periods generally not to exceed four years within an established minimum and maximum range of annual exposure. The gains and losses on these contracts offset changes in the U.S. dollar equivalent value of the related forecasted transaction, asset, liability or firm commitment. The principal currencies hedged are the euro, Japanese yen, Canadian dollar and British pound. Cross-currency swaps are used to effectively convert foreign currency-denominated borrowings into U.S. dollar denominated borrowings.
The Company designates foreign exchange forward and option contracts as cash flow hedges of firmly committed and forecasted foreign currency transactions. As of March 30, 2013 and September 29, 2012, the notional amounts of the Company’s net foreign exchange cash flow hedges were $4.6 billion and $4.6 billion, respectively. Mark-to-market gains and losses on these contracts are deferred in AOCI and are recognized in earnings when the hedged transactions occur, offsetting changes in the value of the foreign currency transactions. Gains and losses recognized related to ineffectiveness for the six months ended March 30, 2013 and March 31, 2012 were not material. Net deferred gains recorded in AOCI for contracts that will mature in the next twelve months totaled $114 million.

Foreign exchange risk management contracts with respect to foreign currency denominated assets and liabilities are not designated as hedges and do not qualify for hedge accounting. The notional amounts of these foreign exchange contracts at March 30, 2013 and September 29, 2012 were $4.5 billion and $4.1 billion, respectively. The following table summarizes the net foreign exchange gains or losses recognized on foreign currency denominated assets and liabilities and the offsetting net foreign exchange gains or losses on the related foreign exchange contracts for the quarters and six months ended March 30, 2013 and March 31, 2012 by the corresponding line item in which they are recorded in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income.

Commodity Price Risk Management
The Company is subject to the volatility of commodities prices and the Company designates certain commodity forward contracts as cash flow hedges of forecasted commodity purchases. Mark-to-market gains and losses on these contracts are deferred in AOCI and are recognized in earnings when the hedged transactions occur, offsetting changes in the value of commodity purchases. The fair value of the commodity hedging contracts at March 30, 2013 and September 29, 2012 were not material. The related gains or losses recognized in earnings were not material for the six months ended March 30, 2013 and March 31, 2012.
Risk Management – Other Derivatives Not Designated as Hedges
The Company enters into certain other risk management contracts that are not designated as hedges and do not qualify for hedge accounting. These contracts, which include certain commodity swap contracts, are intended to offset economic exposures of the Company and are carried at market value with any changes in value recorded in earnings. The fair value of these contracts at March 30, 2013 and September 29, 2012 were not material. The related gains or losses recognized in earnings were not material for the six months ended March 30, 2013 and March 31, 2012.
Contingent Features
The Company’s derivative financial instruments may require the Company to post collateral in the event that a net liability position with a counterparty exceeds limits defined by contract and that vary with the Company’s credit rating. If the Company’s credit ratings were to fall below investment grade, such counterparties would also have the right to terminate our derivative contracts, which could lead to a net payment to or from the Company for the aggregate net value by counterparty of our derivative contracts. The aggregate fair value of derivative instruments with credit-risk-related contingent features in a net liability position by counterparty were $18 million and $82 million on March 30, 2013 and September 29, 2012, respectively.
 
14. Restructuring and Impairment Charges
The Company recorded $61 million of restructuring charges in the current six-month period primarily for severance and contract termination costs in connection with the acquisition of Lucasfilm. In the prior-year six-month period, the Company recorded $44 million of restructuring charges for severance costs related to organizational and cost structure initiatives.
