    Thoughts on tomorrow-presentation of the year-results 2006

    What are your thoughts on tomorrow, the presentation of the year-results 2006?

    I think that the results will be positive; profit?! And that they are going to announce new expansion-plans: Stitch for WDS, new attraction(s) for DLP (Mickeys Philharmagic, POTC re-newal....).

    And of course a lot about the 15th!

    Or am I being to positive??

    I'd say they'll be 40 mil. € on RED. But that's not bad when they've invested about 100 mil. €. AND that money came from investors, so in theory EDL s.c.a. will make profit.

    Yes, there will be hype about 15th year - and why not. It'll be THE year for DLRP. European economy is on right track, people are willing to come (there's already more reservations made for winter than ever), new parade, attractions and more streetmosphere (you though they hired people just for the parade, uh?) will make this year THE year!

    But tomorrow they'll relese the formal annual report. Later they'll release full color book of past year.

    EDL s.c.a. Annual Report 2006

    Revenues increased 5% to € 1,088 million reflecting increases in both theme parks attendance and hotel occupancy
    • Operating margin before depreciation and amortisation up 30% to € 148 million
    • Net loss on a comparable basis1 reduced 21% to € 89 million

    (Marne-la-Vallée, November 8, 2006)
    Euro Disney S.C.A. (the "Company"), parent company of Euro Disney Associés S.C.A., operator of Disneyland Resort Paris, reported today financial results for its consolidated group (the "Group") for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2006.

    Revenues increased 4.5% to € 1,087.7 million in fiscal year 2006 reflecting increases in theme parks attendance and hotel occupancy. Theme parks revenues increased 5.4% to € 579.2 million, following an increase of 0.5 million in attendance, which reached 12.8 million in 2006. Hotels and Disney Village revenues increased 4.2% to € 412.2 million due to a higher occupancy rate of 83.5% compared to 80.7% for fiscal year 2005, as well as increased guest visitations at Disney Village.

    Operating margin before depreciation and amortisation increased 29.6% to € 147.9 million from € 114.1 million as a result of growth in revenues combined with a slight increase in costs and expenses. Operating margin before depreciation and amortisation as a percentage of revenues increased 2.6 percentage points to 13.6%.

    Costs and expenses for fiscal year 2006 grew 1.6% compared to the prior year reflecting management’s ongoing focus on cost containment. The Group's operating margin improved € 29.5 million to a loss of € 2.4 million for fiscal year 2006, from a loss of € 31.9 million in the prior year. Other net financial charges increased over the period due to a higher effective interest rate on the Group's debt.

    For fiscal year 2006, net losses of the Group amounted to € 88.6 million. Excluding the non-recurring, non-cash gain in fiscal year 2005 that resulted from the Group's 2005 legal and financial restructuring (the "2005 Restructuring"), net loss on a comparable basis attributable to equity holders of the parent decreased 20.5% from the prior year to € 73.1 million. Net loss on a comparable basis attributable to minority interests amounted to € 15.5 million.

    Cash and cash equivalents increased by € 24.2 million from the prior year to € 266.4 million.

    Commenting on the results, Karl L. Holz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Euro Disney S.A.S., said:

    "We are pleased with our year end results and we look forward to maintaining this momentum as we continually reinvigorate our Theme Parks. We believe that our growth strategy is delivering its benefits as we remain focused on improving our margins, while continuing to provide our guests with a unique experience. These efforts contributed to a 30% improvement in our operating margin before depreciation and amortisation.

    This year, we benefited from several events, such as the launch of Buzz Lightyear Laser Blast®, and introduced various original offers that appealed to our visitors. Next year, we are hosting the most magical celebration in our history to commemorate our 15th-year anniversary. We are also developing thrilling new products, including a parade in the Disneyland Park and three attractions in Walt Disney Studios Park. All these things plus more combine to create the Disney dream holiday for every family.

    Our encouraging results have been achieved thanks to the dedication and hard work of our cast members, who continue to make our theme parks the most popular tourist destination in Europe."

    You were just ahead of me! I had just copied the text!

    Positive results I think. Still a loss, but all the other signs are on green I think. With the 15th coming up, results can only get better.
    Unfortunmately no further news on new attractions.

    EDL s.c.a. made investments worth of 131 million € (increase of 56 million €) and that included refurbishing hotels and park + building new attraction. So actually net result was quite good.

    You are right! And if I read the statement correctly, there still is some money at hand for more investments.

    Re: Thoughts on tomorrow-presentattion of the year-results 2006

    Do they usually release attendance figures as a combined total for both parks, or is there a way to find the attendance numbers separately for Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios?

    That's what I was wondering too. Because it is pretty good that attendance is up. But I still don't get the idea that WDS has spiked up attendance in recent years. In my memory, even before WDS the attendance figures lay around 10-11 mln. visitors.

    Does this mean a new attraction or new merchandise? (the bolded)

    The words "including" and "plus more" (in the following sentence) do seem to promise more. But this could mean anything; new attractions, but maybe they are only referring to (for example) new paper cups with the 15th logo on it....

    But to remain positive; I sure hope they mean new attractions (Stitch?)!

    So according to that report, Walt Disney Studios has only attracted about 3 million guests?
