Description of Business
We are one of the leaders in the motion picture
exhibition industry. As of December 31, 2014, we operated 495 theatres and 5,676 screens in the U.S. and Latin America and approximately 264 million patrons attended our theatres worldwide during the year ended December 31, 2014. We
are the most geographically diverse worldwide exhibitor, with theatres in fourteen countries as of December 31, 2014. As of December 31, 2014, our U.S. circuit had 335 theatres and 4,499 screens in 41 states and our international circuit
had 160 theatres and 1,177 screens.
Revenues, operating income and net income attributable to Cinemark Holdings, Inc. for the
year ended December 31, 2014, were $2,627.0 million, $363.1 million and $192.6 million, respectively. At December 31, 2014 we had cash and cash equivalents of $638.9 million and total long-term debt of $1,823.0 million. Approximately
$236.0 million, or 13%, of our long-term debt accrues interest at variable rates and approximately $8.4 million of our long-term debt matures in 2015.
We selectively build or acquire new theatres in markets where we can establish and maintain a strong market position. During the year ended December 31, 2014, we built 18 new theatres with 152
screens and acquired two theatres with 18 screens.
We believe our portfolio of modern high-quality theatres with multiple
platforms provides a preferred destination for moviegoers and contributes to our solid cash flows from operating activities. Our significant and diverse presence in the U.S. and Latin America has made us an important distribution channel for movie
studios, particularly considering the expanding worldwide box office. Our market leadership is attributable in large part to our senior operational executives, whose years of industry experience range from 18 to 56 years and who have successfully
navigated us through many industry and economic cycles.
We continue to develop and expand new platforms and market adaptive
concepts for our theatre circuit, including NextGen, CinèArts, Cinemark Bistro, Cinemark Reserve and other premium concepts, such as our Cinemark XD Extreme Digital Cinema, or XD.
