The Walt Disney Company will begin distribution of the following letter to shareholders: The Walt Disney Company ISSUE #6 - FEBRUARY 2024 We are pleased to present to you The Walt Disney Company’s quarterly shareholder newsletter. A Message from Bob Iger to Shareholders Watch Video

Transcript: 2024 BOB IGER SHAREHOLDER VIDEO

I’m Bob Iger – CEO of The Walt Disney Company.

Ahead of our upcoming Annual Meeting, I wanted to update you about the Company’s significant recent achievements, and share why your vote this year is so important to Disney’s future.

It has been a busy and challenging time since I returned to the Company, but we’ve made significant progress, and I am enormously optimistic about our future.

Over the past year, we’ve assembled a new team of experienced leaders, and we’ve created a much more efficient and highly effective company structure.

The steps we’ve taken to propel Disney into a new era of growth are paying off, as evidenced by our recent earnings performance and the new growth initiatives underway to build our businesses.

The team and I have a responsibility to ensure that Disney is one of the most admired companies in the world. This is one of our biggest priorities.

We also want to return to a place where we’re consistently delivering shareholder value. We’ve already taken steps in that direction by declaring a second higher dividend… and by initiating a 3 billion dollar stock buyback program.

All of this takes a lot of work and a laser-like focus on the task at hand, which is why the major distractions we’re facing from activist investors are exactly what we don’t need.

I’m urging you to vote for the Disney Board’s recommended slate of nominees on the WHITE proxy card—and not to vote for the nominees presented by these activist hedge funds.

You have the power to make sure we are able to continue our momentum from the past year and ensure the success of The Walt Disney Company as the world’s leading and most beloved entertainment company.

The leadership team at our Company is experienced and highly motivated. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished, we have a clear vision for the future and we’re optimistic about it.

Our goals are to improve the quality of the films we produce… to transition ESPN into a preeminent digital sports platform… to turn streaming into a significant growth business with increased reach and strong margins… and to turbocharge growth in our experiences business.

All of these goals are achievable, and we’ve already made meaningful progress with each of them. The opportunities before us are very exciting, and we know that we have the strategy, the talent, the resources, and the determination to be successful.

Thank you for your continued support, and I urge you to vote on the WHITE proxy card in support of Disney Director Nominees.
