Disney Warns Investors Of Coronavirus Impacts On Financials

With the Disney parks closed, Cinemas closed, reduced sales of tv ads and more, Disney warns performance will be poor.


Disney Warns Investors Of Coronavirus Impacts On Financials

The Walt Disney company made a SEC filing today which warned investors about the troubled time ahead due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

"The impact of the novel coronavirus ("COVID-19") and measures to prevent its spread are affecting our businesses in a number of ways. We have closed our theme parks; suspended our cruises and theatrical shows; delayed theatrical distribution of films both domestically and internationally; and experienced supply chain disruption and ad sales impacts. In addition there has been a disruption in creation and availability of content we rely on for our various distribution paths, including most significantly the cancellation of certain sports events and the shutting down of production of most film and television content."

It appears they believe there will be some consumer behaviour changes after the pandemic which could impact earnings in the future.

"We expect the ultimate significance of the impact of these disruptions, including the extent of their adverse impact on our financial and operational results, will be dictated by the length of time that such disruptions continue which will, in turn, depend on the currently unknowable duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of governmental regulations that might be imposed in response to the pandemic. Our businesses could also be impacted should the disruptions from COVID-19 lead to changes in consumer behavior. The COVID-19 impact on the capital markets could impact our cost of borrowing. There are certain limitations on our ability to mitigate the adverse financial impact of these items, including the fixed costs of our theme park business. COVID-19 also makes it more challenging for management to estimate future performance of our businesses, particularly over the near to medium term."

Disney shares are trading at around $95, down from around $140 before the pandemic was declared.
