"It was a record quarter for Cineplex," said Ellis Jacob, President and CEO, Cineplex Inc. "New all-time records were set for total revenues and adjusted EBITDA. Media revenues continued to be strong increasing 44.7% to $26.4 million. Our SCENE program continued to increase its membership adding a further 200,000 members to reach 4.7 million. Increased attendance resulting from strong film product during the period and increased revenues generated from concession, box office and media, all contributed to the tremendous gains in adjusted EBITDA.

"In addition to this very strong financial performance, we continued to strengthen our core exhibition business with the announcement of our agreement to acquire 26 Empire theatres. This proposed acquisition will enable us to extend our brand into Atlantic Canada, which will provide us with a truly national presence from coast to coast. It also provides growth opportunities for SCENE, cineplex.com, the Cineplex mobile app and other programs. We also launched SuperTicket, which is the world's first-ever bundled offering from multiple studios that enables movie-goers to purchase a movie admission ticket and pre-order the UltraViolet digital download of a movie at the same time. The pre-ordered digital version will be available before the movie is released for home viewing and will also include a variety of additional value, such as bonus SCENE points and more that will vary by film. Subsequent to the quarter end, we announced our offer to acquire a market leading in-store digital signage company, EK3 Technologies Inc. This acquisition complements our existing Cineplex Digital Media business and combined with EK3, will make us a leader in the indoor digital signage industry and provide a platform for significant growth throughout North America."

Box office revenues increased $18.2 million, or 11.6%, to $174.4 million during the second quarter of 2013, compared to $156.2 million recorded in the same period in 2012. The increase was primarily due to a 8.6% increase in attendance as a result of the strong depth of the film slate during the current period. The prior year period was dominated by Marvel's The Avengers, whereas in the current period multiple blockbusters delivered strong results. The acquisition of the four theatres from AMC during the third quarter of 2012 also contributed to the box office revenue increase in the current year period.

BPP for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $9.36 compared to $9.11 in the prior year period. This represents a quarterly BPP record for Cineplex, exceeding the previous record of $9.18 established in the fourth quarter of 2012. The BPP increase was due to premium priced product accounting for 42.2% of box office revenues in the current period, compared to 36.0% in the prior year period. The increase in the percentage of box office revenues from premium priced product was due in part to increased installations of UltraAVX, 3D, IMAX and VIP screens since the second quarter of 2012.

Cineplex continues to invest in premium priced formats including 3D, UltraAVX, IMAX and VIP thereby positioning itself to benefit from the premiums charged for these offerings.

Box office revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were $319.5 million or 4.6% higher than the prior year period. The strong performance of the blockbuster releases in the second quarter of 2013 more than offset the decline in box office revenues reported in the first quarter of 2013. The acquisition of the four theatres from AMC during the third quarter of 2012 also contributed to the box office revenue increase in the current year period.

Cineplex's BPP for the six months ended June 30, 2013 increased $0.26, or 2.9%, from $8.92 in the 2012 period to $9.18. This increase was primarily due to the increase in revenues from premium-priced product. Premium-priced offerings accounted for 38.9% of Cineplex's box office revenues in the six months ended June 30, 2013, compared to 31.6% in the prior year period. The top five films in the current period were all screened in IMAX and four in 3D (2012 period - four in IMAX and three in 3D).

Cineplex's investment in premium-priced formats over the last five years has positioned it to take advantage of the price premiums charged for these formats, which has contributed to Cineplex's BPP growth in the current period compared to the prior year period. This investment in premium-priced offerings was a key factor resulting in Cineplex outperforming the Canadian industry box office revenue growth during the 2013 periods.

Concession revenues

The following table highlights the movement in concession revenues, attendance and CPP for the quarter and the year to date (in thousands of Canadian dollars, except attendance and same store attendance reported in thousands of patrons, and per patron amounts):

Second Quarter

Concession revenues increased 12.2% as compared to the prior year period primarily due to the 8.6% increase in attendance. CPP increased from $4.66 in the second quarter of 2012 to $4.81 in the same period in 2013, a 3.2% increase and quarterly record for Cineplex. Increased visitation at concession outlets led to the record concession revenues in the period, and the record CPP in the period was due in part to the expanded offerings outside of core concession products driving higher average order value. Brand optimization continues with the expansion of Cineplex's Outtakes and Poptopia brands, with 13 new or rebranded outlets opened in the period.

Year to Date

Concession revenues increased 5.5% as compared to the prior year period, due to the 1.6% increase in attendance and the 3.9% increase in CPP. CPP increased from $4.58 in 2012 to $4.76 in 2013. This represents the highest CPP Cineplex has reported through the first six months of any year.

While the 10% SCENE discount and SCENE points issued on concession combo purchases reduce individual transaction values which impacts CPP, Cineplex believes that this program drives incremental visits and concession purchases, resulting in higher overall concession revenues.

Other revenues

The following table highlights the movement in media, games and other revenues for the quarter and the year to date (in thousands of Canadian dollars):

Other revenues Second Quarter Year to Date
2013 2012 Change 2013 2012 Change
Media $ 26,350 $ 18,208 44.7 % $ 42,660 $ 30,894 38.1 %
Games 1,776 1,452 22.3 % 3,879 3,374 15.0 %
Other 9,430 7,826 20.5 % 18,043 15,746 14.6 %
Total $ 37,556 $ 27,486 36.6 % $ 64,582 $ 50,014 29.1 %

Second Quarter

Other revenues increased 36.6% to $37.6 million in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to higher media revenues, which were $26.4 million, up $8.1 million, or 44.7%, when compared to the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to higher showtime and digital pre-show revenues, with the automotive, electronics and telecommunications sectors providing the largest revenue increases.

The games revenue increase is primarily due to the addition of six new XSCAPE entertainment centres since the second quarter of 2012. On January 31, 2012, Cineplex deconsolidated New Way Sales ("NWS") and merged its operations with the amusement game and vending assets of Starburst Coin Machines Inc. ("SCM"), to create Cineplex Starburst Inc ("CSI"). Cineplex and SCM both have a 50% interest in CSI. Cineplex's share of revenues and expenses from CSI for the periods subsequent to January 31, 2012 are included in the 'Share of income of joint ventures' line in the statements of operations.

The increase in the other category is primarily due to higher auditorium rental and screening revenues as well as additional revenues arising from enhanced guest service initiatives.

Year to Date

Other revenues increased 29.1% from $50.0 million in 2012 to $64.6 million during 2013. Media revenues for 2013 increased $11.8 million, or 38.1%, from the prior year period, with the increase primarily due to higher showtime and digital pre-show revenues. CDM contributed $0.8 million to this revenue growth in the period.

The year-to-date period includes a life-to-date one-time increase to games revenue of $0.5 million recorded in the first quarter of 2013 due to a change in accounting policy regarding the recognition of revenue on the sale of XSCAPE gaming cards, which was offset by the games revenues for the first quarter of 2012 including the results of NWS for January 2012 ($0.4 million). The increase in the other category is primarily due to higher auditorium rental and screening revenues as well as additional revenues arising from enhanced guest service initiatives.

Film cost

The following table highlights the movement in film cost and the film cost percentage for the quarter and the year to date (in thousands of Canadian dollars, except film cost percentage):

Film cost Second Quarter Year to Date
2013 2012 Change 2013 2012 Change
Film cost $ 92,973 $ 83,465 11.4 % $ 166,362 $ 160,172 3.9 %
Film cost percentage (i) 53.3 % 53.4 % -0.1 % 52.1 % 52.4 % -0.3 %
(i) See 'Non-GAAP Financial Measures' section in this news release

Second Quarter

Film cost varies primarily with box office revenue, and can vary from quarter to quarter based on the relative strength of the titles exhibited during the period. The increase in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the prior year period was due to the increase in box office revenue and the impact of the 0.1% decrease in film cost percentage. The decrease in film cost percentage is primarily due to the settlement rate on the top films during the second quarter of 2013 being higher than the average film settlement rate on certain strong performing titles in the 2012 period.

Year to Date

The year to date increase in film cost was due to the 4.6% increase in box office revenues partially offset by the 0.3% decrease in film cost percentage during the period. The decrease in the film cost percentage as compared to the prior year period is primarily due to the settlement rate on certain strong performing titles during the 2012 period being higher than the average settlement rate in the 2013 period.

Cost of concessions

The following table highlights the movement in concession cost and concession cost as a percentage of concession revenues ("concession cost percentage") for the quarter and the year to date (in thousands of Canadian dollars, except concession cost percentage and concession margin per patron):

Cost of concessions Second Quarter Year to Date
2013 2012 Change 2013 2012 Change
Concession cost $ 19,173 $ 16,720 14.7 % $ 35,447 $ 32,490 9.1 %
Concession cost percentage (i) 21.4 % 20.9 % 0.5 % 21.4 % 20.7 % 0.7 %
Concession margin per patron (i) $ 3.79 $ 3.69 2.7 % $ 3.74 $ 3.63 3.0 %
(i) See 'Non-GAAP Financial Measures' section in this news release

Second Quarter

Cost of concessions varies primarily with theatre attendance as well as the quantity and mix of concession offerings sold. The increase in concession cost as compared to the prior year period was due to the 12.2% increase in concession revenues and the 0.5% increase in the concession cost percentage during the period. The concession margin per patron increased from $3.69 in the second quarter of 2012 to $3.79 in the same period in 2013, reflecting the impact of the higher CPP during the period.

Year to Date

The increase in concession cost during the period was due to the 5.5% increase in concession revenues and the 0.7% increase in the concession cost percentage during the period. The concession margin per patron increased from $3.63 in the 2012 period to $3.74 in the current period, reflecting the impact of the higher CPP during the period.

Despite the 10% discount offered to SCENE members and SCENE points offered on select combo offerings, which contributes to a higher concession cost percentage, Cineplex believes the SCENE program drives incremental attendance and purchase incidence which increases concession revenues and CPP.

Depreciation and amortization

The following table highlights the movement in depreciation and amortization expenses during the quarter and the year to date (in thousands of Canadian dollars):

Amortization expenses Second Quarter Year to Date
2013 2012 Change 2013 2012 Change
Amortization of property, equipment and leaseholds $ 14,209 $ 14,450 -1.7 % $ 27,988 $ 28,984 -3.4 %
Amortization of intangible assets and other 2,318 228 916.7 % 5,837 2,167 169.4 %
Amortization expenses as reported $ 16,527 $ 14,678 12.6 % $ 33,825 $ 31,151 8.6 %

The quarterly decrease in amortization of property, equipment and leaseholds of $0.2 million and year-to-date decrease of $1.0 million is due to certain assets becoming fully amortized in the third quarter of 2012, partially offset by the impact of the purchases of equipment and leaseholds relating to new theatre construction.

The increase in amortization of intangible assets and other in the second quarter of 2013 and the year to date period compared to the prior year periods is due to the amortization of certain trade name assets that are being phased out by Cineplex. These assets were previously classified as indefinite life assets however during the fourth quarter of 2012 their classification was changed to definite life with amortization being recorded over the anticipated rebranding schedule of the associated theatres. During the second quarter of 2013, the timeframe over which certain assets were being amortized was adjusted to reflect the revised completion date for the rebranding of the impacted theatres.

Loss on disposal of assets

The following table shows the movement in the loss on disposal of assets during the quarter and the year to date (in thousands of Canadian dollars):

Loss on disposal of assets Second Quarter Year to Date
2013 2012 Change 2013 2012 Change
Loss on disposal of assets $ 1,314 $ 727 80.7 % $ 2,376 $ 672 253.6 %

During the second quarter of 2013, Cineplex recorded a loss of $1.3 million on the disposal of assets that were sold or otherwise disposed (2012 - $0.7 million). For the six months ended June 30, 2013, disposal of assets resulted in a loss of $2.4 million on the disposal of assets that were sold or otherwise disposed (2012 - $0.7 million).

Other costs

Other costs include three main sub-categories of expenses, including theatre occupancy expenses, which capture the rent and associated occupancy costs for Cineplex's various operations; other operating expenses, which include the costs related to running Cineplex's theatres and ancillary businesses; and general and administrative expenses, which includes costs related to managing Cineplex's operations, including the head office expenses.

Second Quarter

Theatre occupancy expenses increased $5.6 million during the second quarter of 2013 compared to the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to the impact of new and acquired theatres, primarily the four theatres acquired from AMC in the third quarter of 2012 ($4.9 million).

Year to Date

The increase in theatre occupancy expenses of $10.5 million for 2013 compared to the prior year was due to the new and acquired theatres, primarily the four theatres acquired from AMC in the third quarter of 2012 ($9.8 million). This increase was partially offset by the impact of favourable real estate tax reassessments included in the 'one-time items' category.

Second Quarter

Other operating expenses during the second quarter of 2013 increased $6.0 million or 9.6% compared to the prior year period. The impact of new and acquired net of disposed theatres was a $2.8 million increase to the category primarily due to the four theatres acquired from AMC which accounted for $2.2 million of the $2.8 million increase. Media expenses increased $1.0 million due to the higher volume of media sales activity in the quarter. As a result of higher business volumes at the theatres during the current year period, same-store payroll costs increased $0.6 million.

The major movement in the Other category included the following:

  • The increase in 3D attendance due to stronger 3D product and the additional 140 3D screens added since June 30, 2012 resulted in higher 3D royalty costs ($0.5 million).
  • Increased online ticket sales and higher business volumes resulted in an increase in credit card service fees ($0.3 million).

Total theatre payroll costs accounted for 43.5% of total operating expenses during the second quarter of 2013 as compared to 44.3% for the same period one year earlier.

Year to Date

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, other operating expenses increased $11.9 million. The impact of new and acquired net of disposed theatres was a $5.7 million increase to the category primarily due to the four theatres acquired from AMC which accounted for $4.3 million of the $5.7 million increase. Cost increases included higher media costs due to the higher media sales during the period ($2.3 million), higher same-store payroll expenses related to the increased business volumes ($0.3 million), higher marketing costs ($0.6 million) and a $3.4 million increase in the Other category.

The major movement in the Other category included the following:

  • Higher credit card service fees due to higher sales volumes during the period ($0.5 million).
  • Increased spending for new business initiatives including Cineplex's interactive business ($0.3 million).
  • Higher same-store utility costs during 2013 compared to the prior year period ($0.2 million).

General and administrative expenses

The following table highlights the movement in general and administrative ("G&A") expenses during the quarter and year to date, including Share based compensation costs, and G&A net of these costs (in thousands of Canadian dollars):

G&A expenses Second Quarter Year to Date
2013 2012 Change 2013 2012 Change
G&A excluding LTIP and option plan expense $ 12,384 $ 10,679 16.0 % $ 25,123 $ 23,175 8.4 %

(i) LTIP includes the expense for the LTIP program as well as the expense for the executive and Board deferred share unit plans.

Second Quarter

G&A expenses increased $3.2 million during the second quarter of 2013 compared to the prior year period, due to a $1.7 million increase in LTIP expense. The increase in Cineplex's share price during the period, which closed the second quarter at a record high of $36.88, was the main contributor to the increase in LTIP expense. G&A excluding LTIP and option plan expense increased due in part to higher head office payroll expenses.

Year to Date

G&A expenses for 2013 increased $4.0 million compared to the prior year period, due to the $2.5 million increase in LTIP expense. Head office payroll expenses increased $1.8 million due to new business initiatives resulting in additional headcount.

Share of income of joint ventures

Cineplex's joint ventures in the 2013 period include its 50% share of one theatre in Quebec and one IMAX screen in Ontario, its 78.2% interest in CDCP and its 50% interest in CSI. For the 2012 period, Cineplex's joint ventures included one theatre in Quebec, one IMAX screen in Ontario, its 78.2% interest in CDCP and its 50% interest in CSI for February and March as CSI was formed January 31, 2012. The following table highlights the components of share of income of joint ventures during the quarter and the year to date (in thousands of Canadian dollars):

Share of income of joint ventures Second Quarter Year to Date
2013 2012 Change 2013 2012 Change
Share of (income) of CDCP $ (779 ) $ (851 ) (8.5 )% $ (1,112 ) $ (926 ) 20.1 %
Share of (income) of CSI (285 ) (272 ) 4.8 % (536 ) (498 ) 7.6 %
Share of (income) loss of other joint ventures (152 ) 20 NM (109 ) (6 ) NM
Total (income) of joint ventures $ (1,216 ) $ (1,103 ) 10.2 % $ (1,757 ) $ (1,430 ) 22.9 %

Second Quarter

The increase from income of $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2012 to income of $1.2 million in the current period is due to nominal increases in income from Cineplex's theatre joint ventures and CSI.

Under IFRS 11, Cineplex's 50% interest in SCENE LP is classified as a joint operation and not a joint venture resulting in Cineplex recognizing its share of the assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses of SCENE in its consolidated financial statements on a line-by-line basis.

Year to Date

The increase from income of $1.4 million in the 2012 period to income of $1.8 million in the current year is due to nominal income increases in all of Cineplex's joint ventures.

EARNINGS BEFORE INTEREST, INCOME TAXES, DEPRECIATION AND AMORTIZATION ("EBITDA")

The following table presents EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 (expressed in thousands of Canadian dollars, except adjusted EBITDA margin):

EBITDA Second Quarter Year to Date
2013 2012 Change 2013 2012 Change
EBITDA $ 57,513 $ 46,869 22.7 % $ 87,866 $ 87,783 0.1 %
Adjusted EBITDA $ 58,711 $ 47,263 24.2 % $ 90,401 $ 88,402 2.3 %
Adjusted EBITDA margin 19.5 % 17.9 % 1.6 % 16.4 % 17.2 % (0.8 )%

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2013 increased $11.4 million, or 24.2%, as compared to the prior year period. The increase as compared to the prior year period was primarily due to the higher attendance in the period resulting in higher exhibition and concession revenues, as well as the strong media revenues in the period. The four theatres acquired from AMC in the third quarter of 2012 contributed $0.5 million to adjusted EBITDA in the period. Adjusted EBITDA margin, calculated as adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenues, was 19.5% compared to 17.9% in the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $90.4 million compared to $88.4 million in the prior year period. This increase was due to the record second quarter exhibition results as well as the strong media revenues recorded throughout the 2013 period compared to the prior year.

Cineplex believes its operating and programming expertise, combined with its merchandising, media, marketing, interactive and SCENE loyalty programs will positively and significantly improve the operations of the four theatres acquired from AMC. Cineplex has added UltraAVX auditoriums to these locations and will continue to invest in each of the locations by potentially adding VIP auditoriums or XSCAPE entertainment centres to one or more of the locations.

ADJUSTED FREE CASH FLOW

For the second quarter of 2013, adjusted free cash flow per common share of Cineplex was $0.7347 as compared to $0.4816 in the prior year period. The declared dividends per common share of Cineplex were $0.3525 in the second quarter of 2013 and $0.3325 in the prior year period. During the twelve months ended June 30, 2013, Cineplex generated adjusted free cash flow per Share of $2.2326, compared to $2.0331 in the prior year period. Cineplex declared dividends per Share of $1.3650 and $1.3000, respectively, in each period. The payout ratios for these periods were approximately 61.1% and 63.9%, respectively.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

EBITDA and Adjusted Free Cash Flow

EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow are not measures recognized by GAAP and do not have standardized meanings in accordance with such principles. Therefore, EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Management uses adjusted EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow to evaluate performance primarily because of the significant effect certain unusual or non-recurring charges and other items have on EBITDA from period to period.

EBITDA is calculated by adding back to net income, income tax expense, amortization and interest expense net of interest income. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adjusting EBITDA for gains and losses on disposal of assets and the share of income of the Canadian Digital Cinema Partnership ("CDCP").

Adjusted free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure generally used by Canadian corporations, as an indicator of financial performance and it should not be seen as a measure of liquidity or a substitute for comparable metrics prepared in accordance with GAAP.

For a detailed reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA and from cash used in or provided by operating activities to adjusted free cash flow, please refer to Cineplex's management's discussion and analysis filed on www.sedar.com.

Per Patron Revenue Metrics

Cineplex reviews per patron metrics as they relate to box office revenue and concession revenue such as BPP, CPP, BPP excluding premium priced product, and concession margin per patron, as these are key measures used by investors to value and assess Cineplex's performance, and are widely used in the theatre exhibition industry. Management of Cineplex defines these metrics as follows:

Attendance: Attendance is calculated as the total number of paying patrons that frequent Cineplex's theatres during the period.
BPP: Calculated as total box office revenues divided by total paid attendance for the period.
BPP excluding premium priced product: Calculated as total box office revenues for the period, less box office revenues from 3D, UltraAVX, VIP and IMAX product; divided by total paid attendance for the period, less paid attendance for 3D, UltraAVX, VIP and IMAX product.
CPP: Calculated as total concession revenues divided by total paid attendance for the period.
Premium priced product: Defined as 3D, UltraAVX, IMAX and VIP film product.
Concession margin per patron: Calculated as total concession revenues less total concession cost, divided by attendance for the period.

Same Store Analysis

Cineplex reviews and reports same store metrics relating to box office revenues, concession revenues, rent expense and payroll expense, as these measures are widely used in the theatre exhibition industry as well as other retail industries.

Same store metrics are calculated by removing the results for all theatres that have been opened, acquired, closed or otherwise disposed of during the periods. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, ten locations that have been opened or acquired and four locations that have been closed or otherwise disposed of have been excluded, resulting in 130 theatres being included in the same store metrics.

Cost of sales percentages

Cineplex reviews and reports cost of sales percentages for its two largest revenue sources, box office revenues and concession revenues as these measures are widely used in the theatre exhibition industry. These measures are reported as film cost percentage and concession cost percentage, respectively, and are calculated as follows:

Film cost percentage: Calculated as total film cost expense divided by total box office revenues for the period.
Concession cost percentage: Calculated as total concession costs divided by total concession revenues for the period.
