of directors. Mr. Gamble will be eligible to receive annual cash incentive bonuses upon the Company meeting certain performance targets established by the compensation committee and will be eligible to participate in, and receive grants of equity incentive awards under, the Company’s long-term incentive plan.

Retirement Savings Plan — The Company has a 401(k) retirement savings plan for the benefit of all employees and makes contributions as determined annually by the board of directors. Employer contribution payments of $2,483 and $2,718 were made in 2013 (for plan year 2012) and 2014 (for plan year 2013), respectively. A liability of approximately $3,176 has been recorded at December 31, 2014 for employer contribution payments to be made in 2015 (for plan year 2014).

Litigation and Litigation SettlementsJoseph Amey, et al. v. Cinemark USA, Inc., Case No. 3:13cv05669, In the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, San Francisco Division. The case presents putative class action claims for damages and attorney’s fees arising from employee wage and hour claims under California law for alleged meal period, rest break, reporting time pay, unpaid wages, pay upon termination, and wage statements violations. The claims are also asserted as a representative action under the California Private Attorney General Act (“PAGA”). The Company denies the claims, denies that class certification is appropriate and denies that a PAGA representative action is appropriate, and is vigorously defending against the claims. The case is in pretrial discovery, no class action has been certified, and no representative action has been quantified or recognized. The Company denies any violation of law and plans to vigorously defend against all claims. The Company is unable to predict the outcome of the litigation or the range of potential loss, if any; however, the Company believes that its potential liability with respect to such proceeding is not material in the aggregate to its financial position, results of operations and cash flows. Accordingly, the Company has not established a reserve for loss in connection with this proceeding.

From time to time, the Company is involved in other various legal proceedings arising from the ordinary course of its business operations, such as personal injury claims, employment matters, landlord-tenant disputes, patent claims and contractual disputes, some of which are covered by insurance or by indemnification from vendors. The Company believes its potential liability with respect to these types of proceedings currently pending is not material, individually or in the aggregate, to the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows.



The Company manages its international market and its U.S. market as separate reportable operating segments. The international segment consists of operations in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala and Bolivia. The Company sold its theatres in Mexico on November 15, 2013. Each segment’s revenue is derived from admissions and concession sales and other ancillary revenues, primarily screen advertising. The measure of segment profit and loss the Company uses to evaluate performance and allocate its resources is Adjusted EBITDA, as defined in the reconciliation table below. The Company does not report asset information by segment because that information is not used to evaluate the performance or allocate resources between segments.
