Jul 23, 2015, 06:30 ET from IMAX Corporation

NEW YORK, July 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- IMAX Corporation (NYSE: IMAX) today reported second quarter 2015 revenues of $107.2 million, adjusted EBITDA as calculated in accordance with the Company's credit facility of $50.4 million, adjusted net income after non-controlling interest of $28.7 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, and reported net income after non-controlling interest of $24.4 million, or $0.34 per diluted share. The Company also reported a very strong second quarter global per screen average of $414,600.

"The second quarter of 2015 was one of the strongest in IMAX's history, delivering our highest revenue ever, growing adjusted EPS by 60% compared to the same period last year, record box office and quarterly per screen averages that we have not seen since Avatar in 2010," stated IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. "We believe the strength of this quarter clearly demonstrates the impact that a strong slate of blockbuster films can have on IMAX and the operating leverage that results."

Network Growth Update

The total IMAX® theatre network consisted of 976 systems as of June 30, 2015, of which 852 were in commercial multiplexes. There were 391 theatres in backlog as of June 30, 2015, compared to 419 in backlog as of June 30, 2014.  In the second quarter of 2015, the Company signed contracts for 30 theatres, of which 28 were for new locations and 2 were for upgrades.  In the quarter, the Company also installed 35 theatres, all of which were for new theatre locations.  For a breakdown of theatre system signings, installations, network and backlog by type, please see the end of this press release.

"Momentum also continued to build on the network side of our business with higher than expected installations and strong signings activity in the quarter," continued Gelfond, who is in Vienna for the world premiere of Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation at the historic Vienna Opera House, which has been transformed into an IMAX theatre for this event.  "Tonight's M:I5 event is the continuation of the transformation of IMAX's brand from the smaller successes onto center stage.  More agreements to use IMAX cameras as well as IMAX premieres such as Furious 7 and Jurassic World are a powerful marketer for our brand and also signal the increasingly important role IMAX plays in the entertainment ecosystem."

Second-Quarter Segment Results

  • Revenue from sales and sales-type leases was $18.7 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $14.5 million in the second quarter of 2014, primarily reflecting the installation of 15 full theatre systems (14 new, 1 used) under sales and sales-type lease arrangements in the most recent second quarter, compared to the 11 sales-type theatres the Company installed in the prior-year period. In addition, there were no upgrades in existing locations in the second quarter of 2015, compared to 4 xenon upgrades in the second quarter of 2014.
  • Revenue from joint revenue-sharing arrangements was $31.6 million in the quarter, compared to $19.4 million in the prior-year period.  During the quarter, the Company installed 20 new theatres under joint revenue-sharing arrangements, compared to 19 in the same period in 2014.  The Company had 477 theatres operating under joint revenue-sharing arrangements as of June 30, 2015, as compared to 408 joint-venture theatres one year prior.
  • Production and IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-Mastering) revenues were $36.6 million in the second quarter of 2015, compared to $24.0 million in the second quarter of 2014.  Gross box office from DMR titles was $343.0 million in the second quarter of 2014, compared to $216.0 million in the prior-year period.  The average global DMR box office per screen in the second quarter of 2014 was $414,600 compared to $299,800 in the prior-year period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

In this release, the Company presents adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders and adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders per diluted share as supplemental measures of performance of the Company, which are not recognized under U.S. GAAP. The Company presents adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share because it believes that they are important supplemental measures of its comparable controllable operating performance and it wants to ensure that its investors fully understand the impact of its stock-based compensation (net of any related tax impact) on net income. In addition, the Company presents adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders and adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders per diluted share because it believes that they are important supplemental measures of its comparable financial results and could potentially distort the analysis of trends in business performance and it wants to ensure that its investors fully understand the impact of net income attributable to non-controlling interests and its stock-based compensation (net of any related tax impact) in determining net income attributable to common shareholders. Management uses these measures to review operating performance on a comparable basis from period to period. However, these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies. Adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders and adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders per diluted share should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, net income and net income attributable to common shareholders and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The Credit Facility provides that the Company will be required at all times to satisfy a Minimum Liquidity Test (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of at least $50 million. The Company will also be required to maintain minimum EBITDA (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of $90.0 million until December 30, 2015, which requirement increases to $100.0 million on December 31, 2015. The Company must also maintain a Maximum Total Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of 2.5:1.0 until December 30, 2015, which requirement decreases to (i) 2.25:1.0 on December 31, 2015; (ii) 2.0:1.0 on December 31, 2016; and (iii) 1.75:1.0 on December 31, 2017. The ratio of total debt to EBITDA was 0.17:1 as at June 30, 2015, where Total Debt (as defined in the Credit Agreement) is the sum of all obligations evidenced by notes, bonds, debentures or similar instruments and was $22.3 million. EBITDA is calculated as follows:

Free Cash Flow:

Free cash flow is defined as cash provided by operating activities minus cash used in investing activities (from the consolidated statements of cash flows). Cash provided by operating activities consist of net income, plus depreciation and amortization, plus the change in deferred income taxes, plus other non-cash items, plus changes in working capital, less investment in film assets, plus other changes in operating assets and liabilities. Cash used in investing activities includes capital expenditures, acquisitions and other cash used in investing activities. Management views free cash flow, a non-GAAP measure, as a measure of the Company's after-tax cash flow available to reduce debt, add to cash balances, and fund other financing activities. A reconciliation of cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow is presented in the table below:
