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; 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 exercising control over our
affairs, and his interests may conflict with the holders of our Class A
common stock; a substantial number of shares which 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 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.
