IMAX Corporation Reports First-Quarter 2017 Results


NEW YORK, April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Year-to-date backlog through April 20th up 52% vs. prior year comparable period to a record 589 theaters
  • Year-to-date signings through April 20th of 104 new systems vs. 37 new systems in the year-ago period, representing a 181% increase
  • Extended Disney blockbuster slate deal through 2019 that includes live-action and animated tent-pole releases from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar, Marvel and LucasFilm
  • Announced first-ever virtual reality Hollywood content deal with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment to develop three cutting-edge VR experiences based on highly anticipated films, including Justice League and Aquaman
  • Agreed with exhibitor partners to open multiple additional pilot VR centres by the end of 2017 in locations including New York; Manchester, UK; Shanghai; and Japan
  • IMAX kicks off blockbuster season with Fate of the Furious, which delivered $30 million opening weekend globally, including the biggest opening weekend ever in China
  • IMAX increases full-year 2017 installation guidance to approximately 160 new theater systems from 150 – 155 theater systems

IMAX Corporation (NYSE: IMAX) today reported first-quarter 2017 revenue of $68.7 million and net income attributable to common shareholders of $0.1 million, or $nil per diluted share. Adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders for the first quarter was $0.06 per diluted share, inclusive of a $0.02 per diluted share asset impairment charge related to a write-down on a documentary title within the film distribution business. For reconciliations of reported results to non-GAAP financial results, and for the definition and reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA as calculated in accordance with the Company's credit facility, please see the end of this press release.

"Building on our record signings in 2016, our momentum in the first four months of 2017 has continued at an extremely strong pace. Not only have we witnessed record signings to date, we have also seen exceptional box office performance from titles such as The Fate of the Furious, which did $30 million in its opening weekend in IMAX and broke numerous box office records including our biggest opening weekend ever in China," said IMAX CEO Richard L Gelfond. "We closed the first quarter with a 30-theatre deal with Bona and just recently announced a 40-theatre deal with Omnijoi and a 25-theatre deal with AMC-Odeon, bringing our year-to-date signings to a record 104 new theaters. Not only do these deals demonstrate our partners' continued optimism in the IMAX business, they also underscore the global diversity of our future expansion. For instance, the Odeon deal has strategic significance to us on several fronts: it opens up markets in Western Europe such as Germany, Italy and Spain and significantly increases the Company's exposure to Scandinavia, which historically has generated above-average box office per screen. These types of agreements are also important as they help facilitate increased awareness in underpenetrated markets, which ultimately drives exhibitor demand for additional IMAX theaters."

First-Quarter 2017 Results

Network Update: 

During the quarter, the Company installed 15 theaters, of which 14 were for new theatre locations and one was an upgrade. The total IMAX theatre network consisted of 1,226 systems as of March 31, 2017, of which 1,121 were in commercial multiplexes. There were 524 theaters in backlog as of March 31, 2017, up 35% from the 388 in backlog as of Mar. 31, 2016. Year to date, as of April 20, 2017, there were 589 theaters in backlog, up 52% from the year-ago period.

Continuing the Company's record signings momentum from 2016, IMAX signed contracts for 39 theaters in the first quarter of 2017, headlined by a 30-theatre agreement with Bona Film Group, a leading film distributor and vertically integrated film production company in China. Year to date, the Company has signed contracts for 104 new theatre systems. On April 11 the Company announced a 25-theatre agreement with Odeon Cinemas Group including its Nordic Cinema Group subsidiary, both wholly owned by AMC (NYSE:AMC), and the largest cinema operators in Europe. On April 18 the Company also announced a 40-theatre agreement with Omnijoi Cinemas, the third-largest IMAX exhibitor partner in China, and the fifth-largest globally.  For a breakdown of theatre system signings, installations, network and backlog by type for the first quarter of 2017, please see the end of this press release.

"In addition to significantly expanding our network and backlog, we are beginning to execute against several new promising business initiatives," CEO Richard L. Gelfond continued. "We launched our flagship IMAX VR Centre in Los Angeles, announced our first-ever Hollywood VR slate deal with Warner Bros., and kicked off production with Marvel and ABC Studios on Marvel's Inhumans, which will debut exclusively in IMAX theaters in early September. We're encouraged by the progress we're seeing across these fronts and believe 2017 will serve as a key inflection point for IMAX as our business expands beyond box office."

Box Office Update:

Gross box office from IMAX DMR® titles was $212.1 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared with $272.0 million in the prior-year period. The average global DMR box office per-screen average in the first quarter of 2017 was $189,300, compared with $284,400 in same period last year. The first-quarter 2016 film slate comparisons included Star Wars: The Force Awakens carryover, Batman v Superman and Deadpool. Other upcoming tent-pole film releases include Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Transformers: The Last Knight, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Dunkirk.

First-Quarter Segment Results

Network Business

  • Network business revenue was $39.3 million in the quarter, compared with $52.3 million in the prior-year period.
  • IMAX DMR revenues were $23.4 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared with $29.8 million in the first quarter of 2016. Gross margin for the IMAX DMR segment was 74.6%, compared to 76.6% in the prior-year comparative period, primarily a result of lower box office performance and higher costs, including marketing, print and sound.
  • Revenue from joint revenue-sharing arrangements was $15.2 million in the quarter, compared with $21.3 million in the prior-year comparative period.
  • Gross margin for joint revenue-sharing arrangements was 67.3%, compared to 82.0% in the prior-year comparative period, reflecting lower box office performance.
  • During the quarter, the Company installed eight new theaters under full joint revenue-sharing arrangements, compared with one in the first quarter of 2016.

Theater Business

  • Theater business segment revenue was $23.2 million in the quarter, compared with $35.1 million in the prior-year comparative period.
  • Revenue from IMAX system sales and sales-type leases was $6.9 million in the first quarter of 2017, compared with $18.0 million in the first quarter of 2016. The Company recognized one upgrade under a sales arrangement in the most recent quarter, compared to nine in the same period last year. The Company also installed five full theatre systems under sales and sales-type lease arrangements in the first quarter of 2017 and 2016, respectively.
  • The Company's margins on full, new sales and sales-type leases were 66.0% compared with 68.2% in the year-ago period, primarily a result of lower margins from the installation of laser-based digital systems.
  • The Company also installed one hybrid joint revenue sharing agreement in the most recent quarter, compared with four in 2016.

Gross margin across all segments in the first quarter of 2017 was 52.1%, compared with 56.6% in the first quarter of 2016, mainly due to lower box office performance and the $3.4 million write-down in our film distribution business. Excluding the write-down, consolidated gross margin would have been 57.1% in the first quarter. Operating expenses (which include SG&A and R&D, and exclude stock-based compensation) were $30.0 million in the quarter, compared with $26.7 million in the first quarter of 2016, and consistent with guidance disclosed on the Q4 2016 call.

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, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA 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 Company is required to maintain a minimum level of "EBITDA", as such term is defined in the Company's credit agreement (and which is referred to herein as "Adjusted EBITDA", as the credit agreement includes additional adjustments beyond interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization). EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (each as defined below) should not be construed as substitutes for net income or as better measures of liquidity as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  The Company believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are relevant and useful information widely used by analysts, investors and other interested parties in the Company's industry.

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. Free cash flow does not represent residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. A reconciliation of cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow is presented in the table below:
