Parijs – Zing mee met “Everyday’s a Celebration” het nieuwe themalied voor de 25ste verjaardag van Disneyland Paris! Dit nummer zal gebruikt worden op de verjaardag van Disneyland Paris op 12 april 2017.

“Everyday’s a Celebration
Of wishes coming true
You don’t need an invitaion
We’re always here for you
Days and nights are filled with laughter
There’s always something new
In a world of adventure, enchantment, excitement
From out of the blue, it’s too good to be true
Could it be?
Come and see
You’re always at home here at Disneyland Paris
And even as you go
You never really go
The memories that we make here
Will go on and on and on

Everyday’s a Celebration
Of wishes coming true
You don’t need an invitaion
We’re always here for you
Days and nights are filled with laughter
There’s always something new
In a world of adventure, enchantment, excitement
From out of the blue, it’s too good to be true
Could it be?
Come and see
You’re always at home here at Disneyland Paris”

Activist hedge fund critical of Walt Disney’s move on Disneyland Paris

Activist hedge fund critical of Walt Disney’s move on Disneyland Paris

London/Paris (Reuters), March 14, 2017 – An activist hedge fund has criticized plans by Walt Disney (DIS.N) to take full control of debt-laden Paris theme park operator Euro Disney (EDLP.PA), according to a letter seen by Reuters.

Paris-based CIAM, which owns 1.4 percent of Euro Disney shares, has written to the board of the French company to object to what it believes are plans by Walt Disney to force out minority shareholders. It said it has the support of more than 5 percent of Euro Disney shareholders, including its holding.

“The Walt Disney Company seeks to force out the remaining minority shareholders by offering them a new public offer, under penalty of having to undergo a strong dilution later,” said the letter, dated March 6. CIAM has not declined Walt Disney’s offer but is monitoring the situation, a source familiar with the matter said.

Euro Disney defended the terms of the Walt Disney takeover. “Given the financial challenges faced by Euro Disney, The Walt Disney Company has developed a long-term solution that takes into account all stakeholders,” it said in a statement. “We believe such an operation will provide Euro Disney with a strong financial footing to continue its strategy, while providing minority shareholders the opportunity to exit at a significant premium,” it added.

Walt Disney last month announced plans to take full control of Euro Disney, after raising its stake to 85.7 percent through a deal with Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. Walt Disney has said it would also support a recapitalisation of up to 1.5 billion euros, helping cut debt and improve Euro Disney’s financial position.

Minority shareholders will be offered 2 euros ($2.13) a share to sell their stake to Walt Disney – a 67 percent premium to Euro Disney’s share price on Feb 9, which was the day before the offer was announced. Walt Disney will buy out and delist the remaining shares from the Euronext Paris stock exchange if it gets to a stake of at least 95 percent. The shares stood at 1.99 euros on Tuesday.

Disneyland Paris opened in 1992 and has struggled financially for much of that time, after making overly optimistic visitor projections and taking on too much debt. Deadly attacks in Paris in 2015 by Islamist militants also hit the broader French tourism sector, and Euro Disney racked up a net loss of 858 million euros in 2016.

LYRICS:

Are we crazy
Living our lives through a lens
Trapped in our white picket fence
Like ornaments

So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble, bubble
So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

Aren’t you lonely
Up there in utopia
Where nothing will ever be enough
Happily numb

So comfortable, we’re living
in a bubble, bubble
So comfortable, we cannot
see the trouble, trouble

So put your rose-colored glasses on
And party on

Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one’s on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm

Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one’s on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm

Are we tone deaf
Keep sweeping it under the mat
Thought we could do better than that
I hope we can

So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble, bubble
So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

So put your rose-colored glasses on
And party on

Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one’s on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm

Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one’s on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm

It is my desire
Break down the walls to connect, inspire
Up in your high place, liars
Time is ticking for the empire
The truth they feed is feeble
As so many times before
They greed over the people
They stumbling and fumbling
And we about to riot
They woke up, they woke up
the lions

Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one’s on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm

Disney bails out European theme park again with $2 billion

11 februari 2017

Disney bails out European theme park again with $2 billion
The Walt Disney Company is once again coming to the rescue of its only theme park in Europe

February 10, 2017: 9:53 AM ET – Disney said Friday that it will increase its stake in Euro Disney to 85.7% from 76.7%. It is also offering to buy the rest of the company for €2 per share, bringing the potential value of the transaction to €356 million ($379 million).Disney said it will also pump up to €1.5 billion ($1.6 billion) into the park to “address its financial needs.” Since opening in 1992, Disneyland Paris says it has become Europe’s top tourist attraction by visitor numbers. But it struggled with huge debts and weak attendance in the aftermath of Europe’s debt crisis.

A series of terror attacks in Paris have increased pressure on the park. Disney said Friday that the operation’s financial position has been “significantly and negatively impacted” by the November 2015 terror attacks in Paris and what it described as “challenging business conditions” in Europe. The number of visitors to the theme park dropped to 13.4 million in 2016, from 14.8 million the previous year. Hotel occupancy rates and average spending per rooms have also declined.

Disney has been forced to bail out the struggling theme park at least three times. In 2014, it invested €1 billion ($1.1 billion) into the park as part of an effort to develop new attractions and hotels. Data from the UN’s World Tourism Organization show international visitor numbers to France fell by about 5% in the first nine months of 2016. Traveler spending in the country also slumped 6.6% in 2016. If travelers continue to shun France in favor of other destinations, it could soon be overtaken by the United States as the world’s most popular tourist destination. The country has been in an official state of emergency since the November 2015 attacks.

The Walt Disney Company Announces an Increase in its Interest in Euro Disney; its Intention to Launch a Tender Offer for all Remaining Euro Disney Shares and a mandatory buy-out if the 95% threshold is reached; and a Proposal to Restore Disneyland Paris’ Financial Position

10 februari 2017

The Walt Disney Company Announces an Increase in its Interest in Euro Disney; its Intention to Launch a Tender Offer for all Remaining Euro Disney Shares and a mandatory buy-out if the 95% threshold is reached; and a Proposal to Restore Disneyland Paris’ Financial Position

– The Walt Disney Company (“Disney”) announces the acquisition of 90% of Kingdom Holding Company’s (“Kingdom”) interest in Euro Disney S.C.A. (“Euro Disney”), representing 9% of Euro Disney’s outstanding shares.

– The proposed transaction will increase Disney’s interest in Euro Disney to 85.7% from 76.7%.

– The price for the transaction is €2.00 per share and will be paid in shares of Disney common stock.

– Disney also announces its intention to make a cash tender offer for all remaining outstanding shares of Euro Disney at a price of €2.00 per share, representing a 67% premium to Euro Disney’s trading price at its close on February 9, 2017.

– Subsequent to the completion of the tender offer, Disney is committed to support a recapitalization of up to €1.5 billion for the Euro Disney group of companies (“Group”) to address the Group’s financial needs.

PARIS, Feb. 10, 2017 /CNW/ — Today The Walt Disney Company (“Disney”) announced that it will acquire through one of its subsidiaries 90% of Kingdom Holding Company’s (“Kingdom”) shares in Euro Disney S.C.A. (“Euro Disney”) at a price of €2.00 per share, increasing its interest in Euro Disney to 85.7%. Disney also announced that this subsidiary intends to make a cash tender offer for all remaining outstanding shares of Euro Disney at a price of €2.00 per share, representing a 67% premium to the trading price at the close on February 9, 2017. Moreover, Disney has informed Euro Disney that it is committed to support a recapitalization of up to €1.5 billion for the Euro Disney group of companies (“Group”) to enable the Group to continue implementation of improvements to Disneyland® Paris, reduce debt and increase liquidity.

As previously reported by Euro Disney, despite the recapitalization announced in 2014 that enabled the Group to make attraction and hotel improvements which have generated positive guest feedback and set the stage for the Resort’s 25th Anniversary celebration this year, the Group’s financial condition has been significantly and negatively impacted by the November 2015 events in Paris and the challenging business conditions that continued through 2016 in France and throughout Europe. The comprehensive proposal announced by Disney affords maximum flexibility to shareholders, addresses the Group’s financial needs and reflects its ongoing support for the long-term success of Disneyland® Paris.

Euro Disney’s Supervisory Board has expressed its support of these developments, and its interest in evaluating this proposal. The Board has asked its audit committee, which is comprised solely of independent members, to make a recommendation for the appointment of an independent expert to deliver a fairness opinion in connection with the proposed tender offer.

Transaction Details:
The acquisition of Euro Disney shares will occur through an off-market block trade and is scheduled to close on February 15, 2017. The purchase price of €2.00 per share will be paid in shares of Disney common stock, based on Disney’s closing price on the New York Stock Exchange on February 14, 2017 and the Euro-U.S. exchange rate published by the European Central Bank on the same day. The seller will be Kingdom 5-KR-11, Ltd, a subsidiary of Kingdom, and the purchaser will be EDL Holding Company, LLC (“EDL”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Disney through which Disney historically has held its interest in Euro Disney. As a result of this transaction, Kingdom’s ownership interest in Euro Disney will decrease from 10.0% to 1.0%.

In connection with this transaction, EDL intends to make a voluntary tender offer for all of the Euro Disney shares not already owned by Disney subsidiaries at a cash price of €2.00 per share. If EDL and the other Disney subsidiaries acting in concert with it collectively own at least 95% of Euro Disney’s common shares following completion of the voluntary tender offer, EDL will promptly proceed with a mandatory buy out and delisting of the Euro Disney shares from Euronext Paris. An indicative timetable is attached to this press release.

Disney has also informed Euro Disney that it is committed to support a recapitalization of up to €1.5 billion as described below:

– If Euro Disney remains a listed company, Disney would expect the recapitalization to take the form of a subscription by the applicable Disney subsidiaries of their pro-rata share of a €1.23 billion rights offering by Euro Disney together with a backstop of (and at the same price as) the rights offering by one or more of such subsidiaries, ensuring that Euro Disney will be able to raise the full amount contemplated by the rights offering, combined with a direct €270 million cash investment in equity at the level of Euro Disney Associés S.C.A., the main operating subsidiary of Euro Disney, and contribution of the proceeds of the rights offering by Euro Disney to Euro Disney Associés S.C.A. to maintain the ownership level of Euro Disney Associés S.C.A. by Euro Disney at its current 82%. Proceeds would be used to enable the Group to continue implementation of improvements to Disneyland Paris, repay most or all of the Group’s indebtedness and increase liquidity. The rights offering described above would be subject to the prior approval of Euro Disney’s shareholders at a shareholders’ meeting.

– If Euro Disney is delisted, Disney would expect the recapitalization to be in the same amount and to also consist entirely of equity contributions to the Group, but the allocation of such contributions between Euro Disney and its subsidiaries could vary compared to what is described above. The proceeds would be used for the same purposes as described above.

The proposed tender offer will be subject to review and clearance by the Autorité des marchés financiers of a Tender Offer Prospectus (Note d’information). In addition, any rights offering will be subject to review and clearance by the Autorité des marchés financiers of an Offering Prospectus (Note d’opération).

Michael van de Kuit steekt €10 à €12 miljoen in nieuwe toeristische attractie aan IJ-oever Amsterdam

31 januari 2017

Michael van de Kuit steekt €10 à €12 miljoen in nieuwe toeristische attractie aan IJ-oever Amsterdam

Amsterdam, 29 maart 2016 – Nedstede, de vastgoedontwikkelaar van Quote 500-lid Michael van de Kuit, koopt de stenen van het This is Holland-paviljoen. Ook neemt Nedstede een belang in het bedrijf dat de attractie, een 3D-film van Nederland, uitbaat. ‘We nemen een deelneming in het bedrijf en worden daarnaast 100% eigenaar van het vastgoed’, aldus Van de Kuit tegenover Quote. Het gaat om een investering van zo’n ‘€10 à €12 miljoen’.

In het This is Holland-paviljoen, dat verijst bij filmmuseum Eye in Amsterdam-Noord, stappen bezoekers in een soort vliegsimulator en maken met behulp van grote 3D-schermen een virtuele vlucht naar Hollandse hoogtepunten als de bollenvelden en de Rotterdamse haven. Het project, dat zo’n €18 miljoen kost, is bedacht door Daniel de Kruijk en Marc Koets.

Van de Kuits Nedstede koopt het gebouw, om het weer terug te verhuren aan de onderneming. Nedstede is in Amsterdam vooral bekend als eigenaar van horecapanden en winkels. Dit soort toeristisch vastgoed is nog relatief nieuw. ‘We richten ons op de uitbreiding van strategische vastgoedconcepten in de groeiende Amsterdamse Leisure markt’, zegt Van de Kuit. ‘De uitbreiding van de vastgoedportefeuille met dit type projecten past naadloos in de ontwikkeling van de nieuwe koers van Nedstede.’

The NFL, NFLPA and Cirque du Soleil prepare a new great attraction


Attraction Scheduled to Open Fall 2017

NFL, NFLPA & Cirque du Soleil Team to Offer Fans the Ultimate NFL Experience With State-of-the-Art Interactive Exhibit in the Heart of Times Square

New York, NY, June 23, 2016 The NFL, NFLPA and Cirque du Soleil, the world’s leading creator of spectacular live productions, today announced plans for an NFL attraction in Times Square, a first-of-its-kind attraction in the heart of New York City. Spanning 40,000 square feet, the four-story innovative exhibit, located on the corner of West 47th Street and 7th Avenue at 20 Times Square, is set to open Fall of 2017.

Located in the crossroads of the world, the NFL Times Square experience will be a must-see attraction for football fans in North America and around the world. The revolutionary exhibit will capture fans’ incredible passion for football through an engaging blend of high-tech displays, as well as immersive and interactive elements. Fans will have the opportunity to test their skills to see how they measure up to professional football players, learn game strategy, in addition to experiencing the adrenaline-pumping action of the NFL.

The attraction will include an approximately 350-seat theater. When fans step inside the theater, they will be surrounded by high-definition screens and state-of-the-art technology, and will be treated to an awe-inspiring multimedia experience. The 20-minute show, co-produced with NFL Films, will invite fans to immerse themselves in the NFL and experience what it feels like to be in the game, on the sidelines and behind the scenes.

“The NFL and Cirque du Soleil are two iconic global brands. We are pleased to team with this industry leader to set the new standard of excellence in sports and entertainment,” said NFL Chief Marketing Officer Dawn Hudson. “We are thrilled to re-imagine what it means to authentically engage with fans by providing them an immersive, innovative experience celebrating football and available year-round. We hope to bring fans of all ages and avidity into the huddle and give them an all-access pass to players and teams.”

In addition to the multimedia show and interactive activities, there will also be educational programming on the art of tackling and passing, on-site retail, stadium-style food and beverage offerings and special artifacts on display. Hall of Famers, current and retired players from around the League will be making appearances and participating in fan experiences.

The NFL Times Square experience will mark Cirque du Soleil’s first official experiential sports venture. World renowned for their live show productions, this new exhibit will showcase their extensive capabilities as creative content providers and continue to position them as an industry leader, bringing the NFL to life like never before through their creative vision and innovation.

“Our new venture with the NFL signifies the next phase of Cirque du Soleil, and we see tremendous opportunity in working creatively with the League as well as other world-class brands throughout the world. No other brand in professional sports is as strong and popular as the NFL and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the NFL from a whole new perspective,” said Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO, Cirque du Soleil.

“We are happy to facilitate an experience that brings NFL players closer to football fans from around the world,” said NFL Players, Inc. President Ahmad Nassar. “This will be a unique and innovative showcase of professional football and an example of how our business can be a unifying force.”

Cirque Du Soleil will work closely with the Witkoff Group, a leading global real estate development and investment firm, on the development of the space, located at 20 Times Square. Leading sports and entertainment presenter AEG will also be part of the project as a financial partner. Several other strategic partners involved in the project include world-renowned architecture and design firm Rockwell Group, as well as the Thinkwell Group, a design and production agency that will help develop the custom content-driven experiences within the exhibition. They are going to work under the guidance of Scott Zeiger, Producer, and Jean-François Bouchard, Chief Creative Officer and Creative Guide of Cirque du Soleil.

Steve Witkoff, CEO of Witkoff, added, “This is an exciting time in our partnership with Marriott and Ian Schrager, and we are thrilled to welcome Cirque du Soleil and the NFL to the new EDITION Times Square in New York.

Cirque du Soleil toch niet naar recreatiegebied Ouderkerkplas

Cirque du Soleil toch niet naar recreatiegebied Ouderkerkplas

Ouderkerk aan de Amstel, maandag 28 november 2016 – Cirque du Soleil strijkt in 2018 toch niet neer in het recreatiegebied bij de Ouderkerkerplas. Dat heeft de gemeente Ouder-Amstel vandaag laten weten.

Het besluit is een overwinning voor de actiegroep ‘Voorkom Mega-events Ouderkerkerplas’. Het plan was dat het wereldberoemde circus vanaf 2018 om de twee jaar bij Ouderkerk aan de Amstel zou neerstrijken. Omwonenden reageerden geschokt op deze plannen en richtten een actiegroep op. Met succes, blijkt nu.

De afgelopen jaren stond Cirque du Soleil in Amsterdam-Zuidoost, vlakbij de Arena. Vanaf 2018 kan het evenement daar niet meer worden gehouden. Als alternatief onderzocht Amsterdam de mogelijkheid om Cirque du Soleil naar het recreatiegebied in Ouder-Amstel te verhuizen.

De gemeente laat verder weten dat het tot dit besluit is gekomen nadat duidelijk was geworden dat het schrappen van het circus uit de evenementenkalender geen financiële of juridische consequenties heeft.

Cirque du Soleil verhuist toch niet naar de Ouderkerkerplas

Ouder-Amstel – De verhuizing van het Cirque du Soleil van Amsterdam-Zuidoost naar de Ouderkerkerplas is van de baan. De gemeente Ouder-Amstel zal niet langer meewerken aan de plannen vanwege een gebrek aan draagvlak onder de bevolking. Het besluit is een tegenvaller voor Amsterdam dat de buurgemeente vorig jaar had benaderd met het voorstel. Vanaf 2018 kan het beroemde circus niet meer terecht op de huidige standplaats bij de Arena Boulevard in Zuidoost.

Het college van Ouder-Amstel stemde aanvankelijk in met het verzoek, maar kreeg daarna de woede van een grote groep bewoners over zich heen die zich zorgen maakten over de gevolgen voor het recreatiegebied. Cirque du Soleil zou twee maanden aan de Ouderkerkerplas blijven staan.

Overlast
Om het circus te faciliteren, zou een deel van het terrein van asfalt moeten worden voorzien. De bewoners vreesden ook voor de overlast door de vele honderden bezoekers die de voorstellingen dagelijks trekken.

Dit weekeinde maakte het college bekend dat de plannen voor de komst van Cirque du Soleil van tafel zijn verdwenen. Uit overleg met de organisatie is duidelijk geworden dat de gemeente niet hoeft te vrezen voor financiële claims vanwege het niet nakomen van de toezegging.

Ook Amsterdam heeft inmiddels zijn fiat gegeven aan het besluit. Een woordvoerder laat weten dat samen met het circus zal worden gezocht naar een nieuwe locatie, in of in de omgeving van de hoofdstad.

Voorstel van het college
De gemeenteraad van Ouder-Amstel buigt zich volgende week over een voorstel van het college om eenmaal per jaar een dancefestival toe te staan aan de Ouderkerkerplas, en eenmaal per jaar een weekend met muziekfestivals zonder zware bastonen.

Uit een peiling blijkt dat een meerderheid van de bewoners tegen grootschalige evenementen in het recreatiegebied is. Een beachvolleybaltoernooi kan wel op brede instemming in Ouder-Amstel rekenen, net als andere sportevenementen, culinaire evenementen, cultuurvoorstellingen en kofferbakmarkten.
