Domestic Markets

The U.S. motion picture exhibition industry set an all-time box office record during 2013 with $10.9 billion in revenues. Industry statistics have not yet been released for 2014, however industry sources indicate that 2014 U.S. box office revenues were approximately $10.4 billion, a 5.2% decrease from the record-setting 2013. The decline in domestic industry performance from 2013 to 2014 was partly due to a shift of certain films into future years as well as less animated content among the films released during 2014.

The following table represents the results of a survey by Motion Picture Association of America, or MPAA, published during March 2014, outlining the historical trends in U.S. box office performance for the ten year period from 2004 to 2013:

International Markets

International box office revenues continue to grow. According to MPAA, international box office revenues were $25.0 billion for the year ended December 31, 2013, representing a 5% increase over 2012. International box office growth is a result of strong economies, ticket price increases and new theatre construction. According to MPAA, Latin American box office revenues were $3.0 billion for the year ended December 31, 2013, representing a 7% increase from 2012.

Growth in Latin America continues to be fueled by a combination of growing populations, an emerging middle class, attractive demographics (i.e., a significant teenage population), continued retail development, and quality product from Hollywood, including 3-D and alternative content offerings. In many Latin American countries, including Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Chile, successful local film product can also provide incremental box office growth opportunities.

We believe many international markets will continue to experience growth as new theatre technologies and platforms are introduced, as film and other product offerings continue to expand and as ancillary revenue opportunities grow.
