Shareholders Re-Elect All 10 Directors At The Walt Disney Company Annual Meeting

Shareholders of The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) at the 2013 Annual Meeting today elected all 10 members of the Board of Directors and supported Board recommendations on the Company's auditor, its executive performance plan and the advisory vote on executive compensation, based on preliminary results.

Disney Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Robert A. Iger welcomed shareholders to the meeting at The Orpheum Theatre in Phoenix and introduced independent Lead Director Orin C. Smith, formerly President and Chief Executive Officer of Starbucks Corporation, and the other members of the Board of Directors. Noting Disney’s blockbuster creative and business accomplishments in 2012, Mr. Iger said, “All of this success across so many of our businesses led to another record financial performance for The Walt Disney Company. In Fiscal 2012, we increased revenue by 3% to a record $42 billion, which led to a record $5.7 billion in net income, up 18% over the year before. And our earnings per share were up 24%, setting a new record of $3.13.” Disney’s market capitalization hit a record $102 billion, Mr. Iger told shareholders.

“We’re very excited about what’s ahead—especially with our recent acquisition of Lucasfilm and Star Wars,” Mr. Iger said. “Lucasfilm joins Disney, Pixar, Marvel, ESPN and ABC in our unprecedented collection of amazing brands.”

Mr. Iger also released the first model image of Shanghai Disneyland, which is scheduled to open at the end of 2015.

Based on preliminary results, all Disney Directors were re-elected to the Board:
  • Susan E. Arnold
  • John S. Chen
  • Judith L. Estrin
  • Robert A. Iger
  • Fred H. Langhammer
  • Aylwin B. Lewis
  • Monica C. Lozano
  • Robert W. Matschullat
  • Sheryl Sandberg
  • Orin C. Smith

Shareholders ratified the appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as the Company's independent accountants for the fiscal year ending September 28, 2013, and approved terms of the Amended and Restated 2002 Executive Performance Plan and the advisory resolution on executive compensation.
