walt disney co/the (DIS*) Key Developments

The Walt Disney Company Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal Year 2016

The Walt Disney Company provided earnings guidance for the fiscal year 2016. For the year, the company expects that due to strength of the U.S. dollar versus a number of key foreign currencies adversely impact operating income by approximately $500 million. The company expected to grow both domestic cable affiliate revenue and cable operating income by high single digits on a compounded annual basis between fiscal 2013 and fiscal 2016. Due to the lower subscriber levels, now expect domestic cable affiliate revenue to fall a bit short of previous expectation though still in the high single-digit range. Now expect this lower affiliate revenue and the multiyear impact of foreign exchange rates to moderate the cable operating income growth to mid-single digits during the fiscal 2013 to 2016 period.
