The company is targeting a total of $5.5 billion in savings, some of which will come from downsizing, Iger said.
“This reorganization will result in a more cost effective, coordinated and streamlined approach to our operations,” said Iger. “I don’t take this decision lightly.”
The job cuts will coincide with a restructuring that will split the company into three core businesses: Disney Entertainment, ESPN and Disney Parks, Iger said.
