GLENDALE, Calif., July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc.

June 30, 2013. For the quarter, the Company reported total revenue of $213.4
million, net income of $22.2 million, and earnings per share of $0.26 on a
fully diluted basis. This compares to revenue of $162.8 million and net income
of $12.8 million, or $0.15 per share on a fully diluted basis, for the same
period in 2012.

"DreamWorks Animation significantly outperformed in the second quarter, thanks
primarily to The Croods' incredibly successful box office run, where it has
amassed $584 million worldwide to become the fifth highest grossing movie of
the year,"said Jeffrey Katzenberg, Chief Executive Officer of DreamWorks
Animation."We also have a great deal of momentum within our television,
consumer products and location-based entertainment businesses today, as
DreamWorks Animation continuesto diversify and evolveinto a branded family
entertainment company."

The Croods, released theatrically on March 22, 2013, has reached $186.4
million at the domestic box office and $397.5 million at the international box
office for a worldwide gross of $583.9 million to date. The Croods contributed
$71.8 million of revenue to the quarter.

Rise of the Guardians contributed $16.7 million of revenue to the quarter,
primarily from home entertainment. The film reached an estimated 4.1 million
home entertainment units sold worldwide through the end of the second quarter,
net of actual and estimated future returns.

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted contributed $48.9 million of revenue to the
quarter, primarily from worldwide pay television. The film reached an
estimated 7.7 million home entertainment units sold worldwide through the end
of the second quarter, net of actual and estimated future returns.

Puss In Boots contributed $1.4 million of revenue to the quarter, primarily
from home entertainment. The film reached an estimated 7.2 million home
entertainment units sold worldwide through the end of the second quarter, net
of actual and estimated future returns.

Library contributed $41.3 million of revenue to the quarter. Other items,
including results from AwesomenessTV and Oriental DreamWorks, contributed
$24.3 million of revenue to the quarter. Classic Media contributed $9.0
million of revenue to the quarter.

Costs of revenue for the quarter equaled $133.3 million. Selling, general and
administrative expenses totaled $49.7 million, including $5.6 million of
stock-based compensation expense.

The Company's income tax expense for the second quarter was $10.1 million. The
Company's combined effective tax rate – its actual tax rate coupled with the
effect of its tax sharing agreement with a former stockholder – was
approximately 32% for the second quarter. The Company currently expects that
its full-year 2013 combined effective tax rate will be approximately 30%.

Year to date, the Company has repurchased 1.3 million shares for $25 million.
The Company has $100 million remaining under its current authorization.

The Company's third quarter results are expected to be driven by worldwide pay
television revenue for Rise of the Guardians and international free television
for Kung Fu Panda 2.

will be discussed in more detail on the Company's earnings conference call
