Cable Networks

Results for the Quarter

Operating income at Cable Networks decreased $95 million to $1.3 billion for the quarter. The decrease in operating income was driven by a reduction of $172 million in the recognition of previously deferred ESPN affiliate fee revenues related to annual programming commitments. Absent this impact, operating income would have increased by $77 million driven by affiliate fee contractual rate increases at ESPN and the domestic Disney Channels and higher advertising revenue at ESPN, partially offset by higher programming and production costs. ESPN advertising revenues increased primarily due to an increase in units delivered and higher rates. The increase in programming and production costs was due to the addition of new college football rights, contractual rate increases for NFL, Major League Baseball (MLB) and college football rights and more episodes of original programming at the domestic Disney Channels.

Results for the Year

For the year, operating income at Cable Networks increased $343 million to $6.0 billion due to growth at ESPN, the domestic Disney Channels and A&E Television Networks (AETN). Growth at ESPN was due to increased affiliate and advertising revenues, partially offset by increased programming and production costs. Affiliate revenue improvement at ESPN was due to contractual rate increases and, to a lesser extent, international subscriber growth. ESPN advertising revenue growth was primarily due to an increase in units delivered and higher rates, partially offset by lower ratings. The increase in programming and production costs was due to contractual rate increases for college sports, NFL, MLB and NBA rights, production costs for new X Games events and the addition of new college football rights. Domestic Disney Channels growth was due to higher affiliate revenues from contractual rate increases, partially offset by higher programming costs driven by more episodes of original programming. Higher equity income from AETN reflected advertising and affiliate revenue growth, along with the benefit of the increase in the Company's ownership interest from 42% to 50%.

Broadcasting

Results for the Quarter

Operating income at Broadcasting decreased $34 million to $158 million for the quarter due to higher primetime programming costs, an unfavorable comparison to syndication sales of Castle and Wipeout in the prior year and higher marketing costs for the fall season, partially offset by advertising and affiliate revenue growth. Higher primetime programming costs were driven by an increase in the average cost per hour due to a shift of hours from lower cost reality and primetime news to higher cost original scripted programming. Higher affiliate revenues were due to contractual rate increases and new contractual provisions. Growth in advertising revenue was due to higher units delivered at the ABC Television Network, increased Network rates and growth in online advertising, partially offset by lower primetime ratings and the absence of the Emmys, which was broadcast by ABC in the prior-year quarter.

Results for the Year

For the year, operating income at Broadcasting decreased $144 million to $771 million due to higher primetime programming costs and lower program sales, partially offset by higher affiliate and advertising revenues. Primetime programming costs reflected an increase in the average cost per hour as a result of a shift in hours from lower cost reality and primetime news to higher cost original scripted programming. The decline in program sales reflected higher sales in the prior year for Desperate Housewives, Castle and Grey's Anatomy, partially offset by current year increases for Scandal, Revenge and Once Upon a Time. Affiliate revenues benefited from contractual rate increases and new contractual provisions. Growth in advertising revenues was due to higher units delivered at the ABC Television Network, increased Network rates and growth in online advertising, partially offset by lower primetime ratings.

Parks and Resorts

Parks and Resorts revenues for the quarter increased 8% to $3.7 billion and segment operating income increased 15% to $571 million. For the year, revenues increased 9% to $14.1 billion and segment operating income increased 17% to $2.2 billion.

Results for the Quarter

Results for the quarter reflected growth at our domestic parks and resorts, an increase in vacation club ownership sales and higher royalty revenue from Tokyo Disney Resort, partially offset by a decrease at Disneyland Paris.

Higher operating income at our domestic parks and resorts was primarily due to increased guest spending, attendance and occupied room nights at Walt Disney World Resort and increased guest spending at Disneyland Resort. These increases were partially offset by higher costs at both resorts and lower attendance at Disneyland Resort, which reflected the success in the prior year from the opening of Cars Land at Disney California Adventure. Increased guest spending at our domestic parks was due to higher average ticket prices, food, beverage and merchandise spending and average daily hotel room rates. Higher costs were due to spending on MyMagic+ and labor and other cost inflation.

Lower operating income at Disneyland Paris was due to lower attendance and occupied room nights, partially offset by increased guest spending. Increased guest spending reflected higher average ticket prices, merchandise, food and beverage spending and average daily hotel room rates.

Results for the Year

For the year, operating income growth reflected increases at our domestic parks and resorts, Disney Vacation Club and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, partially offset by a decrease at Disneyland Paris and higher pre-opening costs at Shanghai Disney Resort.

Operating income growth at our domestic parks and resorts was due to increased guest spending, attendance and occupied room nights, partially offset by higher costs. Increased guest spending was due to higher average ticket prices, food, beverage and merchandise spending and average daily hotel room rates. Cost increases were driven by spending on new guest offerings and labor and other cost inflation. Significant new guest offerings included MyMagic+, the expansions of Disney California Adventure and the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort and Disney's Art of Animation Resort. The increase at Disney Vacation Club was primarily driven by sales of The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, which is a higher margin property.

Operating income growth at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort was due to higher guest spending and attendance, partially offset by higher costs driven by resort expansion and labor and other cost inflation. At Disneyland Paris, increased guest spending was more than offset by lower attendance, fewer occupied room nights and labor and other cost inflation. Increased guest spending at our international resorts was due to higher average ticket prices, the opening of the World of Disney store in July 2012 at Disneyland Paris and increased average daily hotel room rates.

Studio Entertainment

Studio Entertainment revenues for the quarter increased 7% to $1.5 billion and segment operating income increased $28 million to $108 million. For the year, revenues increased 3% to $6.0 billion and segment operating income decreased $61 million to $661 million.

Results for the Quarter

The increase in operating income for the quarter was primarily due to improved theatrical results and growth from television/subscription video on demand (TV/SVOD) distribution, partially offset by a decrease in home entertainment and higher film impairments. The increase in theatrical results was primarily due to the strength of Monsters University in the current quarter compared to Brave in the prior-year quarter, partially offset by the performance of The Lone Ranger in the current quarter. The increase in TV/SVOD distribution was driven by the timing of title availabilities and SVOD sales of library titles in the current quarter. Lower home entertainment results reflected decreased unit sales driven by the performance of Iron Man 3 in the current quarter compared to Marvel's The Avengers in the prior-year quarter, partially offset by lower marketing and overhead costs. Higher film impairments were driven by the write-down of The Lone Ranger in the current quarter, partially offset by a development cost write-off in the prior-year quarter.

Results for the Year

For the year, the decrease in operating income was primarily due to a decrease in home entertainment results, partially offset by an increase in SVOD sales of library titles and lower film impairments. Lower home entertainment results were driven by decreased unit sales reflecting the performance of Brave, Iron Man 3, Wreck-It Ralph and Cinderella Diamond Release in the current year compared to Marvel's The Avengers, Cars 2 and The Lion King Diamond Release in the prior year along with lower catalog sales. Lower film impairments were due to the write-down of The Lone Ranger in the current year compared to the write-down of John Carter and higher development cost write-offs in the prior year. Theatrical distribution results were essentially flat year over year as increased revenues were offset by incremental distribution and production cost amortization. A key driver of the revenue and cost increase was the release of two Disney animated features, Wreck-It Ralph and Planes in the current year versus none in the prior year. Other significant titles in release during the year included Iron Man 3, Monsters University and Oz The Great and Powerful compared to Marvel's The Avengers, Brave and The Muppets in the prior year.

Consumer Products

Consumer Products revenues for the quarter increased 14% to $1.0 billion and segment operating income increased 30% to $347 million. For the year, revenues increased 9% to $3.6 billion and segment operating income increased 19% to $1.1 billion.

Results for the Quarter

Higher operating income for the quarter was due to increases at our Merchandise Licensing and Publishing businesses. The increase at Merchandise Licensing was driven by the performance of Planes, Monsters University and Disney Junior merchandise. Merchandise Licensing results also increased due to the inclusion of Lucasfilm. At Publishing, higher operating income for the quarter was primarily due to international sales of books based on Disney Channel properties.

Results for the Year

For the year, the increase in operating income was due to growth at our Merchandise Licensing, Retail and Publishing businesses. The increase at Merchandise Licensing was driven by the performance of Disney Junior, Monsters University, Mickey and Minnie, Iron Man and Planes merchandise, partially offset by lower earned revenue from Cars and Winnie the Pooh merchandise. Merchandise Licensing results also increased due to the inclusion of Lucasfilm.

At our Retail business, higher operating income for the year was due to comparable store sales growth in North America and Japan and higher online sales in North America. At Publishing, higher operating income for the year was due to the strength of Marvel comics.

Interactive

Interactive revenues for the quarter increased by $205 million to $396 million and segment operating results improved from a loss of $76 million to income of $16 million. For the year, revenues increased 26% to $1.1 billion and segment operating results improved by $129 million to a loss of $87 million.

Improved operating results for the quarter and year were due to increases at our console games and Japan mobile businesses. The increase at our console games business was primarily due to the fourth quarter release of Disney Infinity. Japan mobile results benefited from the full year impact of a licensing agreement that started in February 2012, which drove an increase in handset sales and subscribers for the year and quarter. The increases for the quarter were partially offset by a decrease at our social games business due to a favorable acquisition accounting adjustment recognized in the prior-year quarter.

OTHER FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Corporate and Unallocated Shared Expenses

Corporate and unallocated shared expenses increased $24 million to $164 million for the quarter and increased $57 million to $531 million for the year. The increase for the quarter reflects higher charitable contributions, timing of allocations to operating segments and higher labor costs. The increase for the year reflects higher labor costs and charitable contributions.

The decrease in the effective income tax rate for the quarter was driven by favorable tax adjustments related to pre-tax earnings in prior years and the impact of changes in our full year effective income tax rate relative to our estimate at the end of the third quarter. This impact was slightly favorable in the current quarter, whereas it was unfavorable in the prior-year quarter.

Cash provided by operations for fiscal 2013 increased 19% or $1.5 billion to $9.5 billion as compared to fiscal 2012. The increase in cash provided by operations was primarily due to higher segment operating results, lower pension contributions and the prior-year payment of interest accrued on Disneyland Paris borrowings, partially offset by the payment related to the Celador litigation in the third quarter of the current year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This earnings release presents EPS excluding the impact of certain items, free cash flow and aggregate segment operating income, all of which are important financial measures for the Company but are not financial measures defined by GAAP.

These measures should be reviewed in conjunction with the relevant GAAP financial measures and are not presented as alternative measures of EPS, cash flow or net income as determined in accordance with GAAP. EPS excluding certain items, free cash flow and aggregate segment operating income as we have calculated them may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

EPS excluding certain items – The Company uses EPS excluding certain items to evaluate the performance of the Company’s operations exclusive of certain items that impact the comparability of results from period to period. The Company believes that information about EPS exclusive of these impacts is useful to investors, particularly where the impact of the excluded items is significant in relation to reported earnings, because the measure allows for comparability between periods of the operating performance of the Company’s business and allows investors to evaluate the impact of these items separately from the impact of the operations of the business.

The following table reconciles reported EPS to EPS excluding certain items:

Charges for the prior year totaled $100 million and consisted of $78 million of severance and lease termination charges (of which $35 million was recorded in the fourth quarter of the prior year) and $22 million for intangible and other asset impairment charges (of which $14 million was recorded in the fourth quarter of the prior year).

The current year includes a charge related to the Celador litigation ($321 million), partially offset by gains on the sale of our 50% interest in ESPN STAR Sports and various businesses ($252 million, of which $23 million was recorded in the current quarter). The prior year includes a non-cash gain recorded in connection with the acquisition of a controlling interest in UTV Software Communications Limited ($184 million) and the recovery of a receivable from Lehman Brothers that was written off in 2008 as a result of the Lehman bankruptcy ($79 million, all of which was recorded in the prior-year quarter), partially offset by a net charge related to the refinancing of Disneyland Paris borrowings ($24 million, all of which was recorded in the prior-year quarter).

Free cash flow – The Company uses free cash flow (cash provided by operations less investments in parks, resorts and other property), among other measures, to evaluate the ability of its operations to generate cash that is available for purposes other than capital expenditures. Management believes that information about free cash flow provides investors with an important perspective on the cash available to service debt, make strategic acquisitions and investments and pay dividends or repurchase shares.

Aggregate segment operating income – The Company evaluates the performance of its operating segments based on segment operating income, and management uses aggregate segment operating income as a measure of the performance of operating businesses separate from non-operating factors. The Company believes that information about aggregate segment operating income assists investors by allowing them to evaluate changes in the operating results of the Company’s portfolio of businesses separate from non-operational factors that affect net income, thus providing separate insight into both operations and the other factors that affect reported results.
