Euro Disney S.C.A. has announced the final completion of its capital increases carried out within the framework of the implementation of the proposal of recapitalization and debt reduction of the Euro Disney group announced on October 6, 2014

(Marne-la-Vallée, February 20, 2015) Euro Disney S.C.A. (the “Company”), parent company of Euro Disney Associés S.C.A., operator of Disneyland® Paris, announced today the final completion of its capital increase with shareholders’ preferential subscription rights maintained (the “Rights Offering”) and of its two capital increases without preferential subscription rights reserved for Euro Disney Investments S.A.S. (“EDI S.A.S.”) and EDL Corporation S.A.S. (“EDLC S.A.S.”), two indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of The Walt Disney Company (the “Reserved Capital Increases”, together with the Rights Offering, the “Company’s Capital Increases”).

The characteristics of the Company’s Capital Increases have been described in detail in the securities note that is part of the prospectus approved by the Autorité des marchés financiers (“AMF”) under visa number 15-021 on January 14, 2015 (the “Prospectus”).

The completion of the Company’s Capital Increases occurred within the framework of the implementation of the proposal of recapitalization and debt reduction of the Euro Disney group (the “Group”) announced on October 6, 2014, which is aimed at improving the Group’s financial position and enabling it to continue investing in Disneyland Paris so as to improve the guest experience (the “Proposal”).

The subscription by EDI S.A.S. and EDLC S.A.S., by way of set-off against receivables, to the Reserved Capital Increases for a total amount of €492 million (including issue premium), by issuance of 393,600,000 new ordinary shares at a price of €1.25 per share, occurred today, following implementation of the Rights Offering amounting to €350,788,410, the results of which were announced by the Company on February 17, 2015.

As a result of the Company’s Capital Increases, the settlement and delivery of which is scheduled today, 744,388,410 new ordinary shares were issued and admitted to trading on Euronext Paris today.

Following completion of the Company’s Capital Increases, EDL Holding Company LLC (“EDL Holding”), EDI S.A.S. and EDLC S.A.S., now own 566,675,030 Company’s shares, representing 72.34% of the Company’s share capital and voting rights.
