Delivered Another Substantial Reduction in Quarterly Net Loss and Significant Improvement in Cash Flows from Operations

Generated Worldwide Adjusted EBITDA of $44MM

PLANO, Texas, November 05, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cinemark Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CNK), one of the largest motion picture exhibitors in the world, today reported results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021. As of September 30, 2021, all of the Company's domestic and international theatres were opened for the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2021 were $434.8 million compared to $35.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. As a reminder, the Company’s theatres were closed for a majority of the three months ended September 30, 2020. For the three months ended September 30, 2021, admissions revenues were $225.5 million and concession revenues were $164.2 million, driven by attendance of 30.7 million patrons. Average ticket price was $7.35 and concession revenues per patron were $5.35.

Net loss attributable to Cinemark Holdings, Inc. for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $77.8 million compared to a loss of $147.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Diluted loss per share for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $0.65 compared to $1.25 for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was $44.3 million compared to $(128.0) million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures are provided in the financial schedules accompanying this press release and at investors.cinemark.com.

"As an industry, and as a company, we continue to make significant progress recovering from the effects of the pandemic," stated Mark Zoradi, Cinemark’s CEO. "We are highly encouraged by sustained positive trends in escalating consumer demand for theatrical moviegoing and growing momentum at the box office. This favorable progress was clearly demonstrated in our 61% quarter-over-quarter growth in worldwide attendance, which flowed through to our bottom line as our third quarter net loss reduced $64.7 million dollars from the second quarter and Adjusted EBITDA improved to $44.3 million dollars. This was the first quarter since the pandemic began that we generated positive Adjusted EBITDA in every month of a quarter, tangibly underscoring our resurgence."

Mr. Zoradi continued, "We expect a continued ramp-up in box office performance over the course of the coming months, and October already delivered the best monthly box office results since the onset of COVID-19. As the pandemic further subsides, we remain confident in the future of theatrical moviegoing based on the unparalleled cinematic experience it provides coupled with a robust content lineup in the fourth quarter and beyond that features highly anticipated films with something for everyone."

Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 increased 43.5% to $843.8 million compared to $588.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, admissions revenues increased 41.5% to $435.1 million and concession revenues increased 57.1% to $313.5 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, attendance was 57.5 million patrons, average ticket price increased 17.5% to $7.57 and concession revenues per patron increased 30.4% to $5.45.

Net loss attributable to Cinemark Holdings, Inc. for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $428.5 million compared to $377.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Diluted loss per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $3.59 compared to $3.22 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Net loss and diluted loss per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 were impacted by the carryback of 2020 tax losses to years that had a 35% federal tax rate as allowable per the provisions of the CARES Act. The tax benefit of the carryback reduced the Company’s net loss by approximately $222.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $(59.5) million compared to $(179.4) million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. Reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures are provided in the financial schedules accompanying this press release and at investors.cinemark.com.

As of September 30, 2021, the Company’s aggregate screen count was 5,897 and the Company had commitments to open two new theatres and 33 screens during the remainder of 2021 and twelve new theatres and 112 screens subsequent to 2021.

(1)

Average ticket price and concession revenues per patron for the three months ended September 30, 2020 are considered not meaningful ("NM") as they are based on limited attendance and revenues and are not comparable to other periods.

(2)

Constant currency amounts, which are non-GAAP measurements, were calculated using the average exchange rate for the corresponding month for 2020. 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 loss 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. A reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA is provided below.
