Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Certain matters within this Quarterly Report on Form 10Q include “forward–looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The “forward-looking statements” may include our current expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections about our business and our industry. They may include statements relating to future revenues, expenses and profitability, the future development and expected growth of our business, projected capital expenditures, attendance at movies generally or in any of the markets in which we operate, the number or diversity of popular movies released and our ability to successfully license and exhibit popular films, national and international growth in our industry, competition from other exhibitors and alternative forms of entertainment and determinations in lawsuits in which we are defendants. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “may,” “should,” “could,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “plans,” “expects,” “future” and “intends” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements may involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results or performance to differ from those projected in the forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond our control and difficult to predict and could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or forecasted in the forward-looking statements. For a description of the risk factors, please review the “Risk Factors” section or other sections in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed February 24, 2016 and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. All forward-looking statements are expressly qualified in their entirety by such risk factors. We undertake no obligation, other than as required by law, to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

In thousands, except share and per share data

 

1. 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, 2015, 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, 2015, included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K filed February 24, 2016 by the Company under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved for the full year.

Accounting Reclassifications

The Company has reclassified $8,049 in expenses from film rentals and advertising costs to utilities and other costs on the condensed consolidated statement of income for the three months ended March 31, 2015 to be consistent with the presentation for the three months ended March 31, 2016. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company determined that reclassifying the expenses, which are related to the maintenance and monitoring of projection and sound equipment, results in a more clear presentation of film rental and advertising costs.

2. New Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“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. Effective January 1, 2016, the Company adopted ASU 2015-02, which had no impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), (“ASU 2016-02”). The purpose of ASU 2016-02 is to provide financial statement users a better understanding of the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. The adoption of ASU 2016-02 will result in the recognition of a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for most operating leases. New disclosure requirements include qualitative and quantitative information about the amounts recorded in the financial statements. ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of ASU 2016-02 on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2016-04, Liabilities – Extinguishment of Liabilities (Subtopic 405-20), (“ASU 2016-04”). The purpose of ASU 2016-04 is to provide a narrow scope exception to the guidance in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Subtopic 405-20 to require that breakage of liabilities associated with prepaid stored-value products be accounted for consistent with the breakage guidance in ASC Topic 606. ASU 2016-04 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of ASU 2016-04 on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2016-07, Investments – Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323), (“ASU 2016-07”). The purpose of ASU 2016-07 is to eliminate the requirement that when an investment qualifies for use of the equity method as a result of an increase in the level of ownership interest or degree of influence, an investor must adjust the investment, results of operations, and retained earnings retroactively on a step-by-step basis as if the equity method had been in effect during all previous periods that the investment was held. ASU 2016-07 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect ASU 2016-07 to have an impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations (Reporting Revenues Gross versus Net), (“ASU 2016-08”). The purpose of ASU 2016-08 is to clarify the implementation of revenue recognition guidance related to principal versus agent considerations. ASU 2016-08 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within that year, concurrent with Accounting Standards Update 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of ASU 2016-08 on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2016-09, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, (“ASU 2016-09”). The purpose of ASU 2016-09 is to simplify the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification of such activity on the statement of cash flows. ASU 2016-09 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that year. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of ASU 2016-09 on its condensed consolidated financial statements.

3. Earnings Per Share

The Company considers its unvested restricted stock awards, which contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends, participating securities, and includes such participating securities in its computation of earnings per share pursuant to the two-class method. Basic earnings per share for the two classes of stock (common stock and unvested restricted stock) is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock and unvested restricted stock outstanding during the reporting period. Diluted earnings per share is calculated using the weighted average number of shares of common stock plus the potentially dilutive effect of common equivalent shares outstanding determined under both the two class method and the treasury stock method.

The following table presents computations of basic and diluted earnings per share under the two-class method:

4. Long Term Debt Activity

Issuance of Additional 4.875% Senior Notes

On March 21, 2016, Cinemark USA, Inc. issued an additional $225,000 aggregate principal amount of 4.875% senior notes due 2023 (the “4.875% Senior Notes”), at 99.0% of the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest from December 1, 2015. Proceeds, after payment of fees, were used to finance the redemption of Cinemark, USA, Inc.’s $200,000 7.375% senior subordinated notes due 2021 (the “7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes”), as discussed below. These additional notes have identical terms, other than the issue date, the issue price and the first interest payment date, and constitute part of the same series as Cinemark USA, Inc.’s existing 4.875% Senior Notes. The aggregate principal amount of $755,000 of 4.875% Senior Notes mature on June 1, 2023. The Company incurred debt issue costs of approximately $3,656 in connection with the issuance of the additional notes, which, along with the discount of $2,250, are reflected as a reduction of long term debt as of March 31, 2016.

On April 5, 2016, Cinemark USA, Inc. and its guarantor subsidiaries filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), pursuant to which Cinemark USA, Inc. offered to exchange the additional 4.875% Senior Notes for substantially identical notes registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, that do not contain terms restricting the transfer thereof or providing for registration rights. The registration statement was declared effective April 18, 2016, and the notes are expected to be exchanged by May 16, 2016.

Redemption of 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes

On March 21, 2016, Cinemark USA, Inc. redeemed its $200,000 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes at a make-whole premium of approximately 104% plus accrued and unpaid interest, utilizing the proceeds from the issuance of the additional $225,000 Cinemark USA, Inc. 4.875% Senior Notes discussed above. As a result of the redemption, the Company wrote-off approximately $2,369 in unamortized debt issue costs, paid the make-whole premium of $9,670 and paid other fees of $1,147, all of which are reflected in loss on early retirement of debt during the three months ended March 31, 2016.

6. Investment in National CineMedia

The Company has an investment in National CineMedia, LLC (“NCM”). NCM operates a digital in-theatre network in the U.S. for providing cinema advertising. Upon joining NCM, the Company entered into an Exhibitor Services Agreement with NCM (“ESA”), pursuant to which NCM provides advertising, promotion and event services to our theatres. As described further in Note 6 to the Company’s financial statements as included in its 2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K, on February 13, 2007, National CineMedia, Inc. (“NCM, Inc.”), an entity that serves as the sole manager of NCM, completed an initial public offering (“IPO”) of its common stock. In connection with the NCM Inc. initial public offering, the Company amended its operating agreement and the ESA. Following the NCM, Inc. IPO, the Company does not recognize undistributed equity in the earnings on its original NCM membership units (referred to herein as the Company’s Tranche 1 Investment) until NCM’s future net earnings, less distributions received, surpass the amount of the excess distribution. The Company recognizes equity in earnings on its Tranche 1 Investment only to the extent it receives cash distributions from NCM. The Company recognizes cash distributions it receives from NCM on its Tranche 1 Investment as a component of earnings as Distributions from NCM. The Company believes that the accounting model provided by ASC 323-10-35-22 for recognition of equity investee losses in excess of an investor’s basis is analogous to the accounting for equity income subsequent to recognizing an excess distribution.

During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company recorded equity in earnings of approximately $1,873 and $795, respectively.

The Company made payments to NCM of approximately $22 and $20 during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively, related to installation of certain equipment used for digital advertising, which is included in theatre properties and equipment on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Pursuant to a Common Unit Adjustment Agreement dated as of February 13, 2007 between NCM, Inc. and the Company, AMC Entertainment, Inc. (“AMC”) and Regal Entertainment Group (“Regal”), annual adjustments to the common membership units are made primarily based on increases or decreases in the number of theatre screens operated and theatre attendance generated by each Founding Member. As further discussed in Note 6 to the Company’s financial statements as included in its 2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K, the common units received are recorded at fair value as an increase in the Company’s investment in NCM with an offset to deferred revenue. The

deferred revenue is amortized over the remaining term of the ESA. During March 2016, NCM performed its annual common unit adjustment calculation under the Common Unit Adjustment Agreement. As a result of the calculation, the Company received an additional 753,598 common units of NCM, each of which is convertible into one share of NCM, Inc. common stock. The Company recorded the additional common units received at fair value with a corresponding adjustment to deferred revenue of approximately $11,111. The deferred revenue will be recognized over the remaining term of the ESA, which is approximately 20 years.

As of March 31, 2016, the Company owned a total of 26,384,644 common units of NCM, representing an ownership interest of approximately 19%. The estimated fair value of the Company’s investment in NCM was approximately $401,310 as of March 31, 2016, using NCMI’s stock price as of March 31, 2016 of $15.21 per share.

Digital Cinema Implementation Partners LLC

On February 12, 2007, the Company, AMC and Regal entered into a joint venture known as DCIP to facilitate the implementation of digital cinema in the Company’s theatres and to establish agreements with major motion picture studios for the financing of digital cinema. On March 10, 2010, the Company signed a master equipment lease agreement and other related agreements (collectively the “Agreements”) with Kasima LLC (“Kasima”), which is an indirect subsidiary of DCIP and a related party to the Company. Upon signing the Agreements, the Company contributed the majority of its U.S. digital projection systems to DCIP, which DCIP then contributed to Kasima. The Company has a variable interest in Kasima through the terms of its master equipment lease agreement; however, the Company has determined that it is not the primary beneficiary of Kasima, as the Company does not have the ability to direct the activities of Kasima that most significantly impact Kasima’s economic performance. As of March 31, 2016, the Company had a 33% voting interest in DCIP and a 24.3% economic interest in DCIP. The Company accounts for its investment in DCIP and its subsidiaries under the equity method of accounting.

The Fathom Events business focuses on the marketing and distribution of live and pre-recorded entertainment programming to various theatre operators to provide additional programs to augment their feature film schedule. The Fathom Consumer Events business includes live and pre-recorded concerts featuring contemporary music, opera and symphony, DVD product releases and marketing events, theatrical premieres, Broadway plays, live sporting events and other special events.

Under a separate contribution agreement, the Founding Members each contributed cash of approximately $268 to AC in exchange for 1% of the Class A Units of AC. Subsequently, NCM and the Founding Members entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement, under which NCM sold each of the Founding Members 31% of its Class A Units in AC, the aggregate value of which was determined to be $25,000, in exchange for a six-year Promissory Note.

(1)  The Company withheld restricted shares as a result of the election by certain employees to satisfy their tax liabilities upon vesting in restricted stock and restricted stock units. The Company determined the number of shares to be withheld based upon market values ranging from $32.49 to $35.80 per share.

As of March 31, 2016, the Company had no plans to retire any shares of treasury stock.

Restricted Stock – During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company granted 269,214 shares of restricted stock to employees. The fair value of the restricted stock granted was determined based on the market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant, which was $29.83 per share. The Company assumed forfeiture rates ranging from 0% to 8% for the restricted stock awards. Restricted stock granted to employees vests over service periods that range from approximately one month to four years. The recipients of restricted stock are entitled to receive dividends and to vote their respective shares, however, the sale and transfer of the restricted shares is prohibited during the restriction period.

As of March 31, 2016, the estimated remaining unrecognized compensation expense related to restricted stock awards was $16,277 and the weighted average period over which this remaining compensation expense will be recognized is approximately three years.

Restricted Stock Units – During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company granted restricted stock units representing 253,661 hypothetical shares of common stock to employees. The restricted stock units vest based on a combination of financial performance factors and continued service. The financial performance factors are based on an implied equity value concept that determines an internal rate of return (“IRR”) during the two fiscal year periods ending December 31, 2017 based on a formula utilizing a multiple of Adjusted EBITDA subject to certain specified adjustments as specified by the Compensation Committee prior to the grant date. The financial performance factors for the restricted stock units have a threshold, target and maximum level of payment opportunity and vest on a prorata basis according to the IRR achieved by the Company during the performance period. If the IRR for the two-year period is at least 6.0%, which is the threshold, one-third of the maximum restricted stock units vest. If the IRR for the two-year period is at least 8.0%, which is the target, two-thirds of the maximum restricted stock units vest. If the IRR for the two-year period is at least 10.0%, which is the maximum, 100% of the maximum restricted stock units vest. Grantees are eligible to receive a ratable portion of the common stock issuable if the IRR is within the targets previously noted. Further, as an example, if the Company achieves an IRR equal to 9.0%, the number of restricted stock units that shall vest will be greater than the target but less than the maximum number that would have vested had the Company achieved the highest IRR. In accordance with their respective employment agreements, the awards granted to the Company’s former Chief Executive Officer and former President and Chief Operating Officer vest upon the certification of the IRR for the 2016 award by the Compensation Committee. All other restricted stock units granted during 2016 will vest subject to an additional two-year service requirement and will be paid in the form of common stock if the participant continues to provide services through February 2020, which is the fourth anniversary of the grant date. Restricted stock unit award participants are eligible to receive dividend equivalent payments from the grant date if, and at the time that, the restricted stock unit awards vest.

Below is a table summarizing the potential number of shares that could vest under restricted stock unit awards granted during the three months ended March 31, 2016 at each of the three target levels of financial performance (excluding forfeiture assumptions):

 

     Number of         
     Shares      Value at  
     Vesting      Grant  

at IRR of at least 6.0%

     84,554       $ 2,522   

at IRR of at least 8.0%

     169,107       $ 5,044   

at IRR of at least 10.0%

     253,661       $ 7,568   

Due to the fact that the IRR for the two-year performance period could not be determined at the time of the 2016 grant, the Company estimated that the most likely outcome is the achievement of the target IRR level. The fair value of the restricted stock unit awards was determined based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant, which was $29.83 per share. The Company assumed forfeiture rates ranging from 0% to 10% for the restricted stock unit awards. If during the service period, additional information becomes available to lead the Company to believe a different IRR level will be achieved for the two-year performance period, the Company will reassess the number of units that will vest for the grant and adjust its compensation expense accordingly on a prospective basis over the remaining service period.

(1) Additional dividends of approximately $396 were paid during April 2015 related to the restricted stock unit awards that vested during the three months ended March 31, 2015.

As of March 31, 2016, the estimated remaining unrecognized compensation expense related to the outstanding restricted stock unit awards was $8,492. The weighted average period over which this remaining compensation expense will be recognized is approximately two years. As of March 31, 2016, the Company had restricted stock units outstanding that represented a total of 643,400 hypothetical shares of common stock, net of actual cumulative forfeitures of 17,917 units, assuming the maximum IRR level is achieved for all grants outstanding.

Effective March 4, 2016, the Company’s former President and Chief Operating Officer resigned with good reason as defined within his employment agreement. As a result, certain of his restricted stock and restricted stock unit awards vested upon his resignation. The accelerated vesting of these awards were considered a modification of such awards, therefore the Company revalued the vested awards at their fair value upon modification. The revaluation of these awards resulted in incremental share based award compensation expense of approximately $994 for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

9. Interest Rate Swap Agreements

The Company is currently a party to one interest rate swap agreement that is used to hedge interest rate risk associated with the variable interest rates on the Company’s term loan debt and qualify for cash flow hedge accounting. The fair value of the interest rate swap is recorded on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet as an asset or liability with the effective portion of the interest rate swap’s gains or losses reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive loss and the ineffective portion reported in earnings. The changes in fair values are reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive loss into earnings in the same period that the hedged item affects earnings.

The valuation technique used to determine fair value is the income approach and under this approach, the Company uses projected future interest rates as provided by its swap counterparty and the fixed rate that the Company is obligated to pay under the agreement. Therefore, the Company’s measurements use significant unobservable inputs,

which fall in Level 3 of the U.S. GAAP hierarchy as defined by FASB ASC Topic 820-10-35. There were no changes in valuation techniques during the period and no transfers in or out of Level 3. See Note 12 for a summary of unrealized gains or losses recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss and earnings.

(1)  Balances are presented net of accumulated impairment losses of $214,031 for the U.S. operating segment and $27,622 for the international operating segment.

The Company evaluates goodwill for impairment annually during the fourth quarter or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value of the goodwill may not be fully recoverable. The Company evaluates goodwill for impairment at the reporting unit level and has allocated goodwill to the reporting unit based on an estimate of its relative fair value. Management considers the reporting unit to be each of its nineteen regions in the U.S. and seven countries internationally (Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Guatemala are considered one reporting unit).

For the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company performed a qualitative goodwill impairment assessment on all reporting units except one, in accordance with ASU 2011-08 Testing Goodwill for Impairment (“ASU 2011-08”). The qualitative assessment included consideration of historical and expected future industry performance, estimated future performance of the Company, current industry trading multiples and other economic factors. Based on the qualitative assessment performed, the Company determined that it was not more likely than not that the fair value of the reporting units were less than their carrying values. The Company performed a quantitative two-step approach on a new U.S. region that had not previously been assessed for goodwill impairment. The two-step approach requires the Company to compute the fair value of a reporting unit and compare it with its carrying value. If the carrying value of

the reporting unit exceeds its estimated fair value, a second step is performed to measure the potential goodwill impairment. Significant judgment is involved in estimating cash flows and fair value. Management’s estimates, which fall under Level 3 of the U.S. GAAP fair value hierarchy as defined by FASB ASC Topic 820-10-35, are based on historical and projected operating performance, recent market transactions and current industry trading multiples. The fair value for the new reporting unit was determined based on a multiple of estimated cash flows, which was eight times, and exceeded its carrying value by more than 10%.

No events or changes in circumstances occurred during the three months ended March 31, 2016 that indicated the carrying value of goodwill might exceed its estimated fair value.

11. Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

The Company reviews long-lived assets for impairment indicators on a quarterly basis or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of the assets may not be fully recoverable.

The Company considers actual theatre level cash flows, budgeted theatre level cash flows, theatre property and equipment carrying values, amortizing intangible asset carrying values, the age of a recently built theatre, competitive theatres in the marketplace, the impact of recent ticket price changes, available lease renewal options and other factors considered relevant in its assessment of impairment of individual theatre assets. Long-lived assets are evaluated for impairment on an individual theatre basis, which the Company believes is the lowest applicable level for which there are identifiable cash flows. The impairment evaluation is based on the estimated undiscounted cash flows from continuing use through the remainder of the theatre’s useful life. The remainder of the theatre’s useful life correlates with the available remaining lease period, which includes the probability of renewal periods, for leased properties and the lesser of twenty years or the building’s remaining useful life for fee-owned properties. If the estimated undiscounted cash flows are not sufficient to recover a long-lived asset’s carrying value, the Company then compares the carrying value of the asset group (theatre) with its estimated fair value. When estimated fair value is determined to be lower than the carrying value of the asset group (theatre), the asset group (theatre) is written down to its estimated fair value. Significant judgment is involved in estimating cash flows and fair value. Management’s estimates, which fall under Level 3 of the U.S. GAAP fair value hierarchy as defined by FASB ASC Topic 820-10-35, are based on historical and projected operating performance, recent market transactions and current industry trading multiples. Fair value is determined based on a multiple of cash flows, which was six and a half times for the evaluations performed during the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015. As of March 31, 2016, the estimated aggregate fair value of the long-lived assets impaired during the three months ended March 31, 2016 was approximately $1,770.

12. Fair Value Measurements

The Company determines fair value measurements in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 820, which establishes a fair value hierarchy under which an asset or liability is categorized based on the lowest level of input significant to its fair value measurement. The levels of input defined by FASB ASC Topic 820 are as follows:

Level 1 – quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that are accessible at the measurement date;

Level 2 – other than quoted market prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly; and

Level 3 – unobservable and should be used to measure fair value to the extent that observable inputs are not available.

Below is a summary of assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis by the Company under FASB ASC Topic 820 as of March 31, 2016:

The Company also uses the market approach for fair value measurements on a nonrecurring basis in the impairment evaluations of its long-lived assets (see Note 10 and Note 11). Additionally, the Company uses the market approach to estimate the fair value of its long-term debt (see Note 4). There were no changes in valuation techniques and there were no transfers in or out of Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 during the three months ended March 31, 2016.

13. Foreign Currency Translation

The accumulated other comprehensive loss account in stockholders’ equity of $260,047 and $271,686 at March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, includes cumulative foreign currency adjustments of $259,633 and $273,404, respectively, from translating the financial statements of the Company’s international subsidiaries, and also includes the change in fair values of the Company’s interest rate swap agreements that are designated as hedges and the change in fair value of the Company’s available-for-sale securities.

All foreign countries where the Company has operations are non-highly inflationary, and the local currency is the same as the functional currency in all of the locations. Thus, any fluctuation in the currency results in a cumulative foreign currency translation adjustment recorded to accumulated other comprehensive loss.

15. Segments

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

The Company has an Aircraft Time Sharing Agreement with Copper Beech Capital, LLC to use, on occasion, a private aircraft owned by Copper Beech Capital, LLC. Copper Beech Capital, LLC is owned by Mr. Mitchell and his wife, Tandy Mitchell. The private aircraft is used by Mr. Mitchell and other executives who accompany Mr. Mitchell to business meetings for the Company. The Company reimburses Copper Beech Capital, LLC for the actual costs of fuel usage and the expenses of the pilots, landing fees, storage fees and similar expenses incurred during the trip. For the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, the aggregate amounts paid to Copper Beech Capital, LLC for the use of the aircraft was $24 and $37, respectively.

The Company currently leases 15 theatres and one parking facility from Syufy Enterprises, LP (“Syufy”) or affiliates of Syufy. Raymond Syufy is one of the Company’s directors and is an officer of the general partner of Syufy. Of these 16 leases, 15 have fixed minimum annual rent.

For the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company paid total rent of $6,857 and $5,566, respectively, to Syufy.

17. Commitments and Contingencies

Effective March 4, 2016, the Company’s former President and Chief Operating Officer Robert Copple resigned with good reason as defined within his employment agreement. The Company paid Mr. Copple the payments and benefits pursuant to the terms set forth in his employment agreement. The Company’s post-termination obligations, such as providing continued participation in the Company’s welfare benefit plans and insurance programs, remain in effect for a limited period of time under the employment agreement.

Joseph 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 Company denies any violation of law and plans to vigorously defend against all claims. The Court recently determined that class certification is not appropriate and determined that a PAGA representative action is not appropriate. The plaintiff may appeal these rulings. The Company is unable to predict the outcome of the litigation or the range of potential loss.

The Company received a Civil Investigative Demand (“CID”) from the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice. The CID relates to an investigation under Sections 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act. The Company also received CIDs from the Antitrust Section of the Office of the Attorney General of the State of Ohio and later from other states regarding similar inquiries under state antitrust laws. The CIDs request the Company to answer interrogatories, and produce documents, or both, related to the investigation of matters including film clearances, potential coordination and/or communication with other major theatre circuits and related joint ventures. The Company intends to fully cooperate with all federal and state government agencies. Although the Company does not believe that it has violated any federal or state antitrust or competition laws, it cannot predict the ultimate scope, duration or outcome of these investigations.

From time to time, the Company is involved in various other legal proceedings arising from the ordinary course of its business operations, such as personal injury claims, employment matters, landlord-tenant disputes, patent claims

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes and schedules included elsewhere in this report.

We are a leader in the motion picture exhibition industry, with theatres in the U.S., Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala, Bolivia and Curacao. As of March 31, 2016, we managed our business under two reportable operating segments – U.S. markets and international markets. See Note 15 to our condensed consolidated financial statements.

We generate revenues primarily from box office receipts and concession sales with additional revenues from screen advertising sales and other revenue streams, such as vendor marketing promotions, meeting rentals and electronic video games located in some of our theatres. Our relationship with NCM has assisted us in expanding our offerings to domestic advertisers and broadening ancillary revenue sources such as digital video monitor advertising. We also offer alternative entertainment, such as live and pre-recorded sports programs, concert events, the Metropolitan Opera, in-theatre gaming and other special events in our theatres through our joint venture, AC JV, LLC. Our Flix Media initiative has allowed us to expand our screen advertising and alternative content within our international circuit and to other international exhibitors.

Films leading the box office during the quarter ended March 31, 2016 included the carryover of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Revenant; and new releases such as Deadpool, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Zootopia, Kung Fu Panda 3 and other films. Films scheduled for release during the remainder of 2016 include The Jungle Book, Captain America: Civil War, Finding Dory, Star Trek Beyond, X-Men: Apocalypse, The Secret Life Of Pets, Alice Through The Looking Glass, Sing, and spin-off films Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, among other films.

Film rental costs are variable in nature and fluctuate with our admissions revenues. Film rental costs as a percentage of revenues are generally higher for periods in which more blockbuster films are released. Film rental costs can also vary based on the length of a film’s run. Advertising costs, which are expensed as incurred, are primarily fixed at the theatre level as daily movie directories placed in newspapers represent the largest component of advertising costs. The monthly cost of these advertisements is based on, among other things, the size of the directory and the frequency and size of the newspaper’s circulation.

Concession supplies expense is variable in nature and fluctuates with our concession revenues. We purchase concession supplies to replace units sold. We negotiate prices for concession supplies directly with concession vendors and manufacturers to obtain volume rates.

Although salaries and wages include a fixed cost component (i.e. the minimum staffing costs to operate a theatre facility during non-peak periods), salaries and wages move in relation to revenues as theatre staffing is adjusted to respond to changes in attendance. In some international locations, staffing levels are also subject to local regulations.

Facility lease expense is primarily a fixed cost at the theatre level as most of our facility leases require a fixed monthly minimum rent payment. Certain of our leases are subject to percentage rent only while others are subject to percentage rent in addition to their fixed monthly rent if a target annual revenue level is achieved. Facility lease expense as a percentage of revenues is also affected by the number of theatres under operating leases, the number of theatres under capital leases and the number of fee-owned theatres.

Utilities and other costs include both fixed and variable costs and primarily includes utilities, sound and booth expenses, property taxes, janitorial costs, repairs and maintenance and security services.

(2)  U.S. operating segment revenues include eliminations of intercompany transactions with the international operating segment. See Note 15 of our condensed consolidated financial statements.
(3)  Constant currency revenue amounts were calculated using the average exchange rate for the corresponding month for 2015. We translate the results of our international operating segment from local currencies into U.S. dollars using currency rates in effect at different points in time. Significant changes in foreign exchange rates from one period to the next can result in meaningful variations in reported results. We are providing constant currency amounts for our international operating segment to present a period-to-period comparison of business performance without the impact of foreign currency fluctuations.

 

  U.S. Admissions revenues increased $41.7 million as a result of a 7.2% increase in attendance and a 6.3% increase in average ticket price from $7.13 for the first quarter of 2015 to $7.58 for the first quarter of 2016. Concession revenues increased $24.4 million as a result of the 7.2% increase in attendance and a 7.3% increase in concession revenues per patron from $3.85 for the first quarter of 2015 to $4.13 for the first quarter of 2016. The increase in attendance was due to the success of the films released during the first quarter of 2016, the carryover of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Revenant and new theatres. The increase in average ticket price was primarily due to price increases and the mix of premium product. The increase in concession revenues per patron was primarily due to incremental sales and price increases. Other revenues increased primarily due to increases in screen advertising revenues.

 

  International. Admissions revenues decreased $6.6 million as reported, but increased $27.1 million in constant currency. The constant currency increase is a result of a 16.7% increase in attendance and a 7.8% increase in constant currency average ticket price from $4.37 for the first quarter of 2015 to $4.71 for the first quarter of 2016. Concession revenues decreased $1.0 million as reported, but increased $16.3 million in constant currency. The constant currency increase is a result of the 16.7% increase in attendance and an 11.4% increase in constant currency concession revenues per patron from $2.28 for the first quarter of 2015 to $2.54 for the first quarter of 2016. The increase in attendance was due to the success of the films released during the first quarter of 2016 and new theatres. Average ticket price and concession revenues per patron increased primarily due to price increases, which was primarily due to local inflation.

(1)  We made certain reclassifications from film rentals and advertising to utilities and other for the three months ended March 31, 2015 related to the maintenance and monitoring of projection and sound equipment, which results in a more clear presentation of film rental and advertising costs. Such expenses, which totaled $5.9 million and $2.1 million for the U.S. operating segment and the International operating segment, respectively, are now presented as utilities and other for all periods presented.
(2)  Constant currency expense amounts were calculated using the average exchange rate for the corresponding month for 2015. We translate the results of our international operating segment from local currencies into U.S. dollars using currency rates in effect at different points in time. Significant changes in foreign exchange rates from one period to the next can result in meaningful variations in reported results. We are providing constant currency amounts for our international operating segment to present a period-to-period comparison of business performance without the impact of foreign currency fluctuations.

 

  U.S. Film rentals and advertising costs were $187.6 million, or 55.6% of admissions revenues, for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $160.0 million, or 54.1% of admissions revenues, for the first quarter of 2015. The increase in film rentals and advertising costs as a percentage of admissions revenue was due to the higher box office concentration of top grossing films during the first quarter of 2016, including the carryover of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, compared to the first quarter of 2015. Concession supplies expense was $24.9 million, or 13.5% of concession revenues, for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $21.0 million, or 13.2% of concession revenues, for the first quarter of 2015. The increase in the concession supplies rate was primarily due to the mix of concession products sold and the impact of our expanded menu offerings at certain theatres.

Salaries and wages increased to $58.7 million for the first quarter of 2016 from $51.5 million for the first quarter of 2015 primarily due to increased minimum wages and benefits, incremental staffing for the 7.2% increased attendance and new theatres. Facility lease expense increased to $59.9 million for the first quarter of 2016 from $59.7 million for the first quarter of 2015 primarily due to increased percentage rent. Utilities and other costs decreased to $58.8 million for the first quarter of 2016 from $59.3 million for the first quarter of 2015 primarily due to decreases in utilities and maintenance costs for digital and sound equipment.

 

  International. Film rentals and advertising costs were $45.3 million ($60.8 million in constant currency), or 46.1% of admissions revenues, for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $47.7 million, or 45.5% of admissions revenues, for the first quarter of 2015. Concession supplies expense was $11.0 million ($14.6 million in constant currency), or 20.4% of concession revenues, for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $11.5 million, or 21.0% of concession revenues, for the first quarter of 2015.

Salaries and wages were $16.4 million as reported, or $22.4 million in constant currency, for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $17.7 million for the first quarter of 2015. The constant currency increase was due to incremental staffing for the 16.7% increased attendance, increased wage rates and new theatres. Facility lease expense was $18.9 million as reported, or $24.6 million in constant currency, for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $19.9 million for the first quarter of 2015. The constant currency increase was due to increased percentage rent as a result of increased revenues and new theatres. Utilities and other costs were $22.6 million as reported, or $30.4 million in constant currency, for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $24.1 million for the first quarter of 2015. The constant currency increase was primarily due to increased utilities costs.

General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses were consistent at $37.9 million for the first quarter of 2016 and for the first quarter of 2015. During the first quarter of 2016, increases in salaries and wages and share based award compensation expense were offset by the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates in certain countries in which we operate.

Table of Contents

Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense was $49.3 million during the first quarter of 2016 compared to $45.3 million during the first quarter of 2015. The increase was primarily due to new and remodeled theatres.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets. We recorded asset impairment charges on assets held and used of $0.5 million during the first quarter of 2016 compared to $0.8 million during the first quarter of 2015. The long-lived asset impairment charges recorded during each of the periods presented were specific to theatres that were directly and individually impacted by increased competition, adverse changes in market demographics or adverse changes in the development or the conditions of the areas surrounding the theatre. Impairment charges for the first quarter of 2016 impacted theatre properties in three of our twenty-six reporting units. See Note 11 to our condensed consolidated financial statements.

Gain on Sale of Assets and Other. We recorded a gain on sale of assets and other of $1.8 million during the first quarter of 2016 compared to a gain of $1.4 million during the first quarter of 2015. The gain recorded during the first quarter of 2016 included a gain on the sale of our investment in RealD stock, as we reclassified an accumulated unrealized holding gain from accumulated other comprehensive loss to the income statement upon RealD’s acquisition by a private equity firm. This gain was partially offset by the retirement of certain theatre equipment that was retired during the period related to theatre closures and remodels. The gain recorded during the first quarter of 2015 was primarily a result of lease amendments that resulted in the reduction of certain capital lease and deferred rent liabilities.

Interest Expense. Interest costs incurred, including amortization of debt issue costs, were $28.1 million during the first quarter of 2016 compared to $28.2 million during the first quarter of 2015. The decrease was due to the redemption of our previously outstanding $200.0 million 7.375% senior subordinated notes (the “7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes”) funded by a $225.0 million add-on to our 4.875% senior notes (the “4.875% Senior Notes), which occurred on March 21, 2016. See Note 4 to our condensed consolidated financial statements.

Loss on Early Retirement of Debt. We recorded a loss on early retirement of debt of $13.2 million during the first quarter of 2016 due to the redemption of our previously outstanding $200.0 million 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes. The redemption resulted in the payment of a make-whole premium at approximately 104% and accrued and unpaid interest and the write-off of debt issue costs related to the redeemed notes. See Note 4 to our condensed consolidated financial statements.

Foreign Currency Exchange Gain (Loss). We recorded a foreign currency exchange gain of approximately $1.9 million during the first quarter of 2016 compared to a foreign currency exchange loss of $8.2 million during the first quarter of 2015. These amounts primarily represent the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates on intercompany transactions between our domestic subsidiaries and our international subsidiaries.

Distributions from NCM. We recorded distributions from NCM of $8.5 million during the first quarter of 2016, consistent with the first quarter of 2015, both of which were in excess of the carrying value of our Tranche 1 investment. See Note 6 to our condensed consolidated financial statements.

Equity in Income of Affiliates. We recorded equity in income of affiliates of $7.1 million during the first quarter of 2016 compared to $5.2 million during the first quarter of 2015. See Notes 6 and 7 to our condensed consolidated financial statements for information about our equity method investments.

Income Taxes. We recorded income tax expense of $33.5 million for the first quarter of 2016 compared to $26.4 million for the first quarter of 2015. The effective tax rate was approximately 36.2% for the first quarter of 2016 compared to 38.1% for the first quarter of 2015. Income tax provisions for interim (quarterly) periods are based on estimated annual income tax rates and are adjusted for the effects of significant, infrequent or unusual items (i.e. discrete items) occurring during the interim period. As a result, the interim rate may vary significantly from the normalized annual rate.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Operating Activities

We primarily collect our revenues in cash, mainly through box office receipts and the sale of concessions. In addition, nearly all of our theatres provide the patron a choice of using a credit card, debit card or advanced-sale type certificates such as a gift card, in place of cash. Because our revenues are received in cash prior to the payment of related expenses, we have an operating “float” and historically have not required traditional working capital financing. Cash provided by operating activities was $67.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to $25.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was lower primarily due to the timing of payments made to vendors for products received and services provided during the preceding quarter.

Investing Activities

Our investing activities have been principally related to the development, remodel and acquisition of theatres. New theatre openings and acquisitions historically have been financed with internally generated cash and by debt financing, including borrowings under our senior secured credit facility. Cash used for investing activities was $49.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to $86.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Capital expenditures for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 were as follows (in millions):

   New
Properties
     Existing

     Total  

Three Months Ended March 31, 2016

   $ 13.5       $ 34.2       $ 47.7   

Three Months Ended March 31, 2015

   $ 28.2       $ 57.5       $ 85.7   

 

(a)  Amount for the three months ended March 31, 2015 includes approximately $26.3 million for the purchase of our corporate headquarters building in Plano, TX.

Capital expenditures for existing properties in the table above includes the costs of remodeling certain of our existing theatres to include Luxury Loungers and expanded concession offerings. During the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, we had an average of 37 and 27 of our domestic screens, respectively, temporarily closed for such remodels.

Our U.S. theatre circuit consisted of 338 theatres with 4,551 screens at March 31, 2016. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, we built one new theatre with 12 screens, acquired three theatres with 42 screens and closed three theatres with 21 screens. At March 31, 2016, we had signed commitments to open four new theatres with 45 screens in domestic markets during the remainder of 2016 and open seven new theatres with 72 screens subsequent to 2016. We estimate the remaining capital expenditures for the development of these 117 domestic screens will be approximately $68 million.

Our international theatre circuit consisted of 178 theatres with 1,289 screens at March 31, 2016. During the three months ended March 31, 2016, we built three new theatres with 20 screens and closed one theatre with 9 screens. At March 31, 2016, we had signed commitments to open seven new theatres and 51 screens in international markets during the remainder of 2016 and open two new screens subsequent to 2016. We estimate the remaining capital expenditures for the development of these 53 international screens will be approximately $33 million.

Actual expenditures for continued theatre development and acquisitions are subject to change based upon the availability of attractive opportunities. We plan to fund capital expenditures for our continued development with cash flow from operations, borrowings under our senior secured credit facility, and proceeds from debt issuances, sale leaseback transactions and/or sales of excess real estate.

Financing Activities

Cash used for financing activities was $22.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to $37.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2016 included the redemption of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s $200.0 million 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes with proceeds from the issuance of a $225.0 million add-on to Cinemark USA, Inc.’s existing 4.875% Senior Notes. See Note 4 to our condensed consolidated financial statements.

We, at the discretion of the board of directors and subject to applicable law, anticipate paying regular quarterly dividends on our common stock. The amount, if any, of the dividends to be paid in the future will depend upon our then available cash, anticipated cash needs, overall financial condition, loan agreement restrictions as discussed below, future prospects for earnings and cash flows, as well as other relevant factors.

We may from time to time, subject to compliance with our debt instruments, purchase our debt securities on the open market depending upon the availability and prices of such securities.

Other than the operating leases and purchase commitments disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 filed February 24, 2016, we do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Senior Secured Credit Facility

Cinemark USA, Inc. has a senior secured credit facility that includes a seven year $700.0 million term loan and a five year $100.0 million revolving credit line (the “Senior Secured Credit Facility”). On May 8, 2015, Cinemark USA,

 

32


Table of Contents

Inc. amended the Senior Secured Credit Facility to extend the maturity of the term loan from December 2019 to May 2022. Quarterly principal payments in the amount of $1.75 million are due on the term loan through March 31, 2022, with the remaining principal of $635.3 million due on May 8, 2022. The maturity date for the revolving credit line, which is December 2017, did not change.

Interest on the term loan accrues at Cinemark USA, Inc.’s option at: (A) the base rate equal to the greatest of (1) the US “Prime Rate” as quoted in The Wall Street Journal or if no such rate is quoted therein, in a Federal Reserve Board statistical release, (2) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50%, and (3) a one-month Eurodollar-based rate plus 1.0%, plus, in each case, a margin of 2.0% per annum, or (B) a Eurodollar-based for a period of 1, 2, 3, 6, 9 or 12 months plus a margin of 3.0% per annum. Interest on the revolving credit line accrues, at our option, at: (A) a base rate equal to the greatest of (1) the US “Prime Rate” as quoted in The Wall Street Journal or if no such rate is quoted therein, in a Federal Reserve Board statistical release, (2) the federal funds effective rate plus 0.50%, and (3) a one-month Eurodollar-based rate plus 1.0%, plus, in each case, a margin that ranges from 1.00% to 1.75% per annum, or (B) a Eurodollar-based for a period of 1, 2, 3, 6, 9 or 12 months plus a margin that ranges from 2.00% to 2.75% per annum. The margin of the revolving credit line is determined by the consolidated net senior secured leverage ratio as defined in the credit agreement.

The Senior Secured Credit Facility contains usual and customary negative covenants for agreements of this type, including, but not limited to, restrictions on Cinemark USA, Inc.’s ability, and in certain instances, its subsidiaries’ and our ability, to consolidate or merge or liquidate, wind up or dissolve; substantially change the nature of its business; sell, transfer or dispose of assets; create or incur indebtedness; create liens; pay dividends or repurchase stock; and make capital expenditures and investments. If Cinemark USA, Inc. has borrowings outstanding on the revolving credit line, it is required to satisfy a consolidated net senior secured leverage ratio covenant as determined in accordance with the Senior Secured Credit Facility.

The dividend restriction contained in the Senior Secured Credit Facility prevents the Company and any of its subsidiaries from paying a dividend or otherwise distributing cash to its stockholders unless (1) the Company is not in default, and the distribution would not cause Cinemark USA, Inc. to be in default, under the Senior Secured Credit Facility; and (2) the aggregate amount of certain dividends, distributions, investments, redemptions and capital expenditures made since December 18, 2012, including dividends declared by the board of directors, is less than the sum of (a) the aggregate amount of cash and cash equivalents received by Cinemark Holdings, Inc. or Cinemark USA, Inc. as common equity since December 18, 2012, (b) Cinemark USA, Inc.’s consolidated EBITDA minus 1.75 times its consolidated interest expense, each as defined in the Senior Secured Credit Facility, and (c) certain other defined amounts. As of March 31, 2016, Cinemark USA, Inc. could have distributed up to approximately $1,970.0 million to its parent company and sole stockholder, Cinemark Holdings, Inc., under the terms of the Senior Secured Credit Facility, subject to its available cash and other borrowing restrictions outlined in the agreement.

At March 31, 2016, there was $677.3 million outstanding under the term loan and no borrowings outstanding under the revolving credit line. Cinemark USA, Inc. had $100.0 million in available borrowing capacity on the revolving credit line. The average interest rate on outstanding term loan borrowings under the Senior Secured Credit Facility at March 31, 2016 was approximately 3.8% per annum.

Cinemark USA, Inc. 5.125% Senior Notes

On December 18, 2012, Cinemark USA, Inc. issued $400.0 million aggregate principal amount of 5.125% senior notes due 2022, at par value (the “5.125% Senior Notes”). Interest on the 5.125% Senior Notes is payable on June 15 and December 15 of each year, beginning June 15, 2013. The 5.125% Senior Notes mature on December 15, 2022.

The indenture to the 5.125% Senior Notes contains covenants including limitations on the amount of dividends that could be paid by Cinemark USA, Inc. As of March 31, 2016, Cinemark USA, Inc. could have distributed up to approximately $1,979.7 million to its parent company and sole stockholder, Cinemark Holdings, Inc., under the terms of the indenture to the 5.125% Senior Notes, subject to its available cash and other borrowing restrictions outlined in the indenture. The indenture allows Cinemark USA, Inc. to incur additional indebtedness if it satisfies the coverage ratio specified in the indenture, after giving effect to the incurrence of the additional indebtedness, and in certain other circumstances. The required minimum coverage ratio is 2 to 1 and our actual ratio as of March 31, 2016 was approximately 8.3 to 1.

Cinemark USA, Inc. 4.875% Senior Notes

On May 24, 2013, Cinemark USA, Inc. issued $530.0 million aggregate principal amount of the 4.875% Senior Notes due 2023, at par value. On March 21, 2016, Cinemark USA, Inc. issued an additional $225.0 million aggregate principal amount of the 4.875% Senior Notes at 99.0% of the principal amount plus accrued and unpaid interest from December 1, 2015. Proceeds, after payment of fees, were used to finance the redemption of Cinemark, USA, Inc.’s $200.0 million 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes, as discussed below. These additional notes have identical terms, other than the issue date, the issue price and the first interest payment date, and constitute part of the same series as the Company’s existing 4.875% Senior Notes. Interest on the 4.875% Senior Notes is payable on June 1 and December 1 of each year. The 4.875% Senior Notes mature on June 1, 2023.

The indenture to the 4.875% Senior Notes contains covenants that include limitations on the amount of dividends that Cinemark USA, Inc. can pay. As of March 31, 2016, Cinemark USA, Inc. could have distributed up to approximately $1,975.5 million to its parent company and sole stockholder, Cinemark Holdings, Inc., under the terms of the indenture to the 4.875% Senior Notes, subject to its available cash and other borrowing restrictions outlined in the indenture. The indenture allows Cinemark USA, Inc. to incur additional indebtedness if it satisfies the coverage ratio specified in the indenture, after giving effect to the incurrence of the additional indebtedness, and in certain other circumstances. The required minimum coverage ratio is 2 to 1 and our actual ratio as of March 31, 2016 was approximately 8.4 to 1.

On April 5, 2016, Cinemark USA, Inc. and its guarantor subsidiaries filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), pursuant to which Cinemark USA, Inc. offered to exchange the additional 4.875% Senior Notes for substantially identical notes registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, that do not contain terms restricting the transfer thereof or providing for registration rights. The registration statement was declared effective April 18, 2016, and the notes are expected to be exchanged by May 16, 2016.

Cinemark USA, Inc. 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes

On June 3, 2011, Cinemark USA, Inc. issued $200.0 million aggregate principal amount of 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2021, at par value. Interest on the 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes is payable on June 15 and December 15 of each year. The 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes mature on June 15, 2021.

On March 21, 2016, Cinemark USA, Inc. redeemed the 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes at a make-whole premium of approximately 104% plus accrued and unpaid interest, utilizing the proceeds from the issuance of the additional $225.0 million 4.875% Senior Notes discussed above. As a result of the redemption, the Company wrote-off approximately $2.4 million in unamortized debt issue costs, paid the make-whole premium of approximately $9.7 million and paid other fees of $1.1 million, all of which are reflected in loss on early retirement of debt during the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Covenant Compliance

As of March 31, 2016, we believe we were in full compliance with all agreements, including all related covenants, governing our outstanding debt.

Seasonality

Our revenues have historically been seasonal, coinciding with the timing of releases of motion pictures by the major distributors. Generally, the most successful motion pictures have been released during the summer, extending from May to July, and during the holiday season, extending from early November through year-end. The unexpected emergence of a hit film during other periods can alter this seasonality trend. The timing of such film releases can have a significant effect on our results of operations, and the results of one quarter are not necessarily indicative of results for the next quarter or for the same period in the following year.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

We have exposure to financial market risks, including changes in interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates and other relevant market prices.

Interest Rate Risk

We are currently party to a variable rate debt facility. An increase or decrease in interest rates would affect our interest expense relating to our variable rate debt. At March 31, 2016, we had an aggregate of approximately $677.3 million of variable rate debt outstanding. Based on the interest rates in effect on the variable rate debt outstanding at March 31, 2016, a 100 basis point increase in market interest rates would increase our annual interest expense by approximately $6.8 million.
