Forward-Looking Statements: This press release contains forward-looking
statements pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Securities
Litigation Reform Act of 1995, which are subject to various risks and
uncertainties. These risks and uncertainties include, without
limitation, risks relating to: WWE Network; major distribution
agreements; our need to continue to develop creative and entertaining
programs and events; the possibility of a decline in the popularity of
our brand of sports entertainment; the continued importance of key
performers and the services of Vincent K. McMahon; possible adverse
changes in the regulatory atmosphere and related private sector
initiatives; the highly competitive, rapidly changing and increasingly
fragmented nature of the markets in which we operate and greater
financial resources or marketplace presence of many of our competitors;
uncertainties associated with international markets; our difficulty or
inability to promote and conduct our live events and/or other businesses
if we do not comply with applicable regulations; our dependence on our
intellectual property rights, our need to protect those rights, and the
risks of our infringement of others’ intellectual property rights; the
complexity of our rights agreements across distribution mechanisms and
geographical areas; potential substantial liability in the event of
accidents or injuries occurring during our physically demanding events
including, without limitation, claims relating to CTE; large public
events as well as travel to and from such events; our feature film
business; our expansion into new or complementary businesses and/or
strategic investments; our computer systems and online operations; a
possible decline in general economic conditions and disruption in
financial markets; our accounts receivable; our revolving credit
facility; litigation; our potential failure to meet market expectations
for our financial performance, which could adversely affect our stock;
Vincent K. McMahon exercises control over our affairs, and his interests
may conflict with the holders of our Class A common stock; a substantial
number of shares are eligible for sale by the McMahons and the sale, or
the perception of possible sales, of those shares could lower our stock
price; and the relatively small public “float” of our Class A common
stock. In addition, our dividend is dependent on a number of factors,
including, among other things, our liquidity and historical and
projected cash flow, strategic plan (including alternative uses of
capital), our financial results and condition, contractual and legal
restrictions on the payment of dividends (including under our revolving
credit facility), general economic and competitive conditions and such
other factors as our Board of Directors may consider relevant.
