Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense was $209.1 million for 2016 compared to $189.2 million for 2015. The increase was primarily due to depreciation expense related to new theatres as well as remodels and other improvements of existing theatres.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets. We recorded asset impairment charges on assets held and used of $2.8 million for 2016 compared to $8.8 million for 2015. Impairment charges for 2016 consisted of theatre properties in the U.S., Colombia and Ecuador, impacting eight of our twenty-seven reporting units. Impairment charges for 2015 consisted of theatre properties in the U.S., Colombia and Ecuador, impacting fourteen of our twenty-seven reporting units. 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. See Notes 1 and 8 to our consolidated financial statements.

Loss on Sale of Assets and Other. We recorded a loss on sale of assets and other of $20.4 million during 2016 compared to $8.1 million during 2015. The loss recorded during the 2016 period was primarily due to the retirement of assets due to theatre remodels and closures, partially offset by a gain on the sale of our investment in RealD stock (see Note 6) and a gain on the sale of a land parcel. The loss recorded during 2015 included lease termination costs, contract termination costs and the retirement of assets due to theatre remodels and closures, partially offset by gains related to lease amendments that resulted in a reduction of certain capital lease liabilities, the sale of an investment in a Taiwan joint venture, and the sale of a land parcel in the U.S.

Interest Expense. Interest costs incurred, including amortization of debt issue costs, were $108.3 million for 2016 compared to $112.7 million for 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, as well as the amendments in June and December of 2016 to our senior secured credit facility, each of which reduced the rate at which our $700.0 million term loan accrues interest. See Note 10 to our consolidated financial statements for further discussion of our long-term debt.

Foreign Currency Exchange Gain (Loss). We recorded a foreign currency exchange gain of $6.5 million during 2016 compared to a foreign currency exchange loss of $16.8 million during 2015 primarily related to intercompany transactions and changes in exchange rates from the original transaction date until cash settlement. See Notes 1 and 12 to our consolidated financial statements for discussion of foreign currency translation.

Loss on Debt Amendments and Refinancing. We recorded a loss of $13.4 million during 2016 primarily related to the early redemption of our 7.375% Senior Subordinated Notes and the amendments, in June and December of 2016, to our senior secured credit facility, each of which reduced the rate at which our $700.0 million term loan accrues interest. We recorded a loss of $0.9 million in 2015 related to an amendment to our senior secured credit facility. See Note 10 to our consolidated financial statements for discussion of our long-term debt.

Distributions from NCM. We recorded distributions received from NCM of $14.7 million during 2016 and $18.1 million during 2015, which were in excess of the carrying value of our Tranche 1 Investment. See Note 5 to our consolidated financial statements.

Equity in Income of Affiliates. We recorded equity in income of affiliates of $32.0 million during 2016 and $28.1 million during 2015. See Notes 5 and 6 to our consolidated financial statements for information about our equity investments.

Income Taxes. Income tax expense of $103.8 million was recorded for 2016 compared to $128.9 million recorded for 2015. The effective tax rate for 2016 was 28.8%, which included the impact of the implementation of a foreign holding and financing structure that will allow us to use foreign tax credits that had previously carried a full valuation allowance. The effective tax rate for 2015 was 37.1%. See Note 16 to our consolidated financial statements.
