21ST CENTURY FOX AND DISNEY ANNOUNCE DISTRIBUTION ADJUSTMENT MULTIPLE IN CONNECTION WITH ACQUISITION AND EFFECT ON OUTSTANDING SHARES

18/03/2019

NEW YORK, New York and BURBANK, Calif., March 18, 2019 - Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. ( 21CF ) (NASDAQ: FOXA, FOX) and The Walt Disney Company ( Disney ) (NYSE: DIS) announced today that the distribution adjustment multiple used to determine the portion of each share of 21CF common stock to be exchanged for common stock of Fox Corporation ( FOX ) in the Distribution (as defined below) (the Distribution Adjustment Multiple ), has been calculated to be approximately 1.357190, in accordance with the Amended and Restated Agreement and Plan of Merger (the Merger Agreement ), dated as of June 20, 2018, by and among 21CF, Disney, TWDC Holdco 613 Corp., the holding company that will own both Disney and 21CF following the completion of the transactions contemplated thereby, and certain of Disney's other subsidiaries.

21CF expects to distribute, at approximately 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time tomorrow, all issued and outstanding shares of FOX common stock to 21CF stockholders (other than holders of the shares held by subsidiaries of 21CF) on a pro rata basis (the Distribution ). Pursuant to the Amended and Restated Distribution Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of June 20, 2018, by and between 21CF and 21CF Distribution Merger Sub, Inc., and because the Distribution Adjustment Multiple is approximately 1.357190, 0.263183 of each share of 21CF common stock held at the time of the Distribution will be exchanged for 1/3 of one share of FOX common stock of the same class, and holders will receive cash in lieu of any fractional share of FOX common stock they otherwise would have been entitled to receive in connection with the Distribution. Following the completion of the Distribution, holders will continue to own 0.736817 of each such share of 21CF common stock, which will remain issued and outstanding until 21CF merges with a subsidiary of Disney (the Acquisition ). The 0.736817 of each share of 21CF common stock remaining outstanding following the Distribution will be exchanged for the amount of consideration in the Acquisition that a whole share of 21CF common stock would have been exchanged for before giving effect to the Distribution, because the consideration that holders will receive in the Acquisition is automatically adjusted pursuant to the Merger Agreement to take the Distribution into account by multiplying the value of such consideration by the Distribution Adjustment Multiple.

As previously announced, 21CF and Disney anticipate the effectiveness of the Acquisition to occur at 12:02 a.m. Eastern Time on March 20, 2019.
