walt disney co/the (DIS) Key Developments

Muneefa Abdullah Sues Walt Disney

An author sued Walt Disney Co. in federal court claiming the movie 'Frozen' ripped off her short story about a snow princess. Kuwaiti author Muneefa Abdullah alleges 'Frozen' copied plot elements, themes and characters from her children's story 'The Snow Princess', most notably Elsa, the princess who has the power to turn people into ice. The copyright infringement lawsuit, which was filed in Detroit's federal court, seeks unspecified damages. Her story, 'The Snow Princess', was published in the compilation 'New Fairy Tales' in 2007 by Trafford Publishing. The publishing firm later became part of Random House Publishing, which employed Lee for eight years.

The Walt Disney Company Enters into $1.5 Billion 364-Day Credit Agreement

On March 13, 2015, The Walt Disney Company entered into a new $1.5 billion 364-Day credit agreement with a syndicate of lenders to support commercial paper borrowings and for other general corporate purposes. The new facility will expire on March 11, 2016. Under the new facility, as with the company's existing $1.5 billion 364-Day credit agreement, the company has the option to borrow at LIBOR-based rates plus a spread, subject to a cap and a floor that vary with the company's debt rating, depending on the credit default swap spread applicable to the company's senior, unsecured, non-credit enhanced long-term debt. The remaining provisions of the new facility, including representations, warranties, covenants and events of default, are also substantially similar to the provisions of the existing 364-Day facility. In particular, the new facility contains only one financial covenant, relating to interest coverage, and specifically excludes certain entities, including Euro Disney, Hong Kong Disneyland and Shanghai Disney Resort, from any representations, covenants or events of default.

Walt Disney Names Thomas Staggs as New COO

The Walt Disney Company has named Thomas Staggs as the new COO. A 25-year Disney veteran, Mr. Staggs is Chairman, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, overseeing the strategy, operations and creative development of the company's iconic travel and leisure businesses. He will assume the role of COO immediately, while continuing to lead Parks and Resorts until a successor is named. Disney's senior management team, including all business segment leaders, will report jointly to Mr. Iger and Mr. Staggs, with the exception of the CFO, General Counsel, Chief Communications Officer and Chief Human Resources Officer, who will continue to report directly to Robert A. Iger, Chairman and CEO.
