Cinemark Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CNK), one of the largest motion picture exhibitors in the world, today reported results for the three months ended March 31, 2020. The Company’s financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2020 were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, as the Company temporarily closed all of its theatres effective March 18, 2020. See discussion in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC.

Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2020 were $543.6 million compared to $714.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, admissions revenues were $292.5 million and concession revenues were $190.4 million. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, attendance was 45.8 million patrons, average ticket price increased 0.6% to $6.39 and concession revenues per patron increased 3.2% to $4.16.

Net loss attributable to Cinemark Holdings, Inc. for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $59.6 million compared to net income attributable to Cinemark Holdings, Inc. of $32.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Diluted loss per share for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $0.51 compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.28 for the three months ended March 31, 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $66.2 million compared to $152.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures are provided in the financial schedules accompanying this press release and at investors.cinemark.com.

"As a direct result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to close all of our theaters in the middle of March, which had a significant impact on our first quarter results, and continues to impact us today," stated Mark Zoradi, Cinemark Chief Executive Officer. "We are looking forward to welcoming our guests and team members back to our theaters and are pleased to have now shifted our attention to domestic re-opening, which we plan to initiate in a multi-phased approach beginning June 19."

Mr. Zoradi continued, "Our heightened sight and sound technology, giant screens and shared communal auditoriums provide a deeply immersive entertainment experience, as well as a transcendent escape from reality, that simply cannot be replicated at home. After months of home-sheltering, I am optimistic that these unparalleled factors offer movie-goers a much-needed relief that bodes well for Cinemark, and our industry as a whole, as theaters re-launch."

As of March 31, 2020, the Company’s aggregate screen count was 6,145 and the Company had commitments to open five new theatres and 48 screens during the remainder of 2020 and 17 new theatres and 175 screens subsequent to 2020.

Constant currency amounts, which are non-GAAP measurements, were calculated using the average exchange rate for the corresponding month for 2019. We translate the results of our international operating segment from local currencies into U.S. dollars using currency rates in effect at different points in time in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Significant changes in foreign currency exchange rates from one period to the next can result in meaningful variations in reported results. We are providing constant currency amounts for our international operating segment to present a period-to-period comparison of business performance that excludes the impact of foreign currency fluctuations.

Adjusted EBITDA represents net income before income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense and other items, as calculated below. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure commonly used in our industry and should not be construed as an alternative to net income as an indicator of operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity (as determined in accordance with GAAP). Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We have included Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it provides management and investors with additional information to measure our performance and liquidity, estimate our value and evaluate our ability to service debt. In addition, we use Adjusted EBITDA for incentive compensation purposes.
