Earnings Results The Walt Disney Company recently reported earnings for its second fiscal quarter and six months ended March 28, 2009. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) for the second quarter were $0.33 including restructuring and impairment charges which had a $0.10 per share impact on EPS. Excluding these items, EPS decreased 26% to $0.43 from $0.58 in the prior-year quarter. For the six month period, diluted EPS was $0.78. In addition to the restructuring and impairment charges, EPS for the six month period included a gain on the sale of our investment in two pay television services in Latin America. Collectively, these items adversely affected EPS by $0.07 per share for the six months. Excluding these items, EPS decreased 30% to $0.85 from $1.21 in the prior year six months. We had a difficult second quarter due to the weak economy and other factors, said Robert A. Iger, president and CEO, The Walt Disney Company. At the same time, we remain focused on our core business strategy and believe our creativity, brands and businesses will serve us well as the economy recovers.

Charities Walt Disney World is the largest supporter of the Give Kids the World compassion program, providing over 50,000 tickets a year and special services for terminally ill children and their families. Disney's Celebration in the Park transforms Lake Eola Park in Downtown Orlando into a magical Disney experience as our annual thank-you to the community. All of the best Disney entertainment is provided at no charge to nearly 100,000 Central Floridians during one weekend in October. The Disney Crew is a puppet show targeted at elementary age students, and is designed to discourage drug experimentation. The show travels to Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake, and Polk counties and has played to over 1.7 million students. The Disney Dreamers and Doers program recognizes students in Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake, Polk, and Brevard counties. The positive response by educators and families led to the expansion of the program in 1986 to all public school districts in the State of Florida. To date, nearly 6,000 students have been recognized. Disney's Community Service Awards program honors those groups whose members dedicate their lives in service to others. Over the years, we've recognized more than 1,000 Central Florida organizations with cash awards totaling over $4 million. In 1998, a total of $500,000 was awarded to 73 organizations at the fall awards ceremony. Through the Ears to You program, VoluntEar Cast Members can recommend funding to local non-profit organiations for which they volunteer. Applications are reviewed once a year by the VoluntEar Board and funds are awarded at a May ceremony. Funding for this program comes from money collected from the many ponds, reflecting pools, and other bodies of water throughout Walt Disney World.
