Announced by Warner Bros. Entertainment CEO Kevin Tsujihara, President of DC Entertainment and President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products Diane Nelson is taking a leave of absence. Nelson has set new priorities for herself following a series of personal situations including recovering from back surgery she underwent last year.

The leave of absence has Tsujihara's full support and will start April 2. No time frame for her return was given, but she is expected to return.

In the meanwhile, Thomas Gewecke, who serves as Chief Digital Officer and Executive VP of Strategy and Business Development at Warner Bros., will provide support to the executive team of Dan DiDio, Jim Lee, Geoff Johns, and Amit Desai.

Tsujihara's memo to staff is below.

Dear Colleagues:

Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment and President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products, has decided to take time off starting Monday, April 2. After 22 years with the company, she wants to recharge, as well as have immediate and uninterrupted time with her family. This is her decision and the entire senior management team and I support this, and will help facilitate it as follows:

- The DC Executive Management team will report to Thomas Gewecke (Chief Digital Officer and EVP, Strategy and Business Development) in the interim

- Pam Lifford will report to me in the interim

Diane continues to be an important member of the Warner Bros. family and has worked on many of our most iconic properties. She has contributed greatly to the company's successes, and we look forward to her returning to the Studio.

In the meantime, please don't hesitate to reach out to your management team, Thomas or me if you have any questions.

Thank you for your support and continued commitment to excellence in everything we do.

Best regards,

KT
