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.
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.
