CINEMARK HOLDINGS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
In thousands, except share and per share data
||The Company and Basis of Presentation |
Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries (the Company) operates in the motion picture exhibition industry, with
theatres in the United States (U.S.), Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala, Bolivia and Curacao.
The accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2014, which was derived from audited financial statements, and
the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) for interim financial information and in accordance with
the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, all
adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that
affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and the accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Majority-owned subsidiaries that the Company has control of are consolidated while those affiliates of which the
Company owns between 20% and 50% and does not control are accounted for under the equity method. Those affiliates of which the Company owns less than 20% are generally accounted for under the cost method, unless the Company is deemed to have the
ability to exercise significant influence over the affiliate, in which case the Company would account for its investment under the equity method. The results of these subsidiaries and affiliates are included in the condensed consolidated financial
statements effective with their formation or from their dates of acquisition. Intercompany balances and transactions are eliminated in consolidation.
These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited annual consolidated financial statements and
the notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2014, included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K filed February 27, 2015 by the Company under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act). Operating
results for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved for the full year.
||New Accounting Pronouncements |
In January 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update 2015-01,
Income Statement Extraordinary and Unusual Items (Subtopic 225-20): Simplifying Income Statement Presentation by Eliminating the Concept of Extraordinary Items, (ASU 2015-01). ASU 2015-01 eliminates the concept of an
extraordinary item from GAAP. With this update, there is no longer a need to segregate extraordinary items from the results of ordinary operations, separately present an extraordinary item on its income statement, net of tax, after income from
continuing operations or disclose income taxes and earnings per share data applicable to an extraordinary item. However, presentation and disclosure requirements for items that are unusual in nature and occur infrequently still apply. ASU 2015-01 is
effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted. The Company has elected to early adopt ASU 2015-01, which had no impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.
In February 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2015-02, Consolidation (Topic 810): Amendments to the Consolidation
Analysis, (ASU 2015-02). ASU 2015-02 affects reporting entities that are required to evaluate whether they should consolidate certain legal entities. Specifically, ASU 2015-02 modifies the evaluation of whether limited partnerships
and similar legal entities are variable interest entities (VIEs) or voting interest entities, eliminates the presumption that a general partner should consolidate a limited partnership and affects the consolidation analysis of reporting entities
that are involved with certain VIEs. ASU 2015-02 also provides a scope exception from consolidation guidance for reporting entities with interests in legal entities that are required to comply with or operate in accordance with requirements that are
similar to those in Rule 2a-7 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 for registered money market funds. ASU 2015-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating
the impact of ASU 2015-02 on its condensed consolidated financial statements.
In April 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update
2015-03, Interest Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs, (ASU 2015-03). ASU 2015-03 requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be
presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction
