PART I

Item 1. Business

Our Company

Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries, or the Company, us or our, is a leader in the motion picture exhibition industry, with theatres in the United States, or U.S., Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Guatemala. We operated theatres in Mexico until November 15, 2013. We also managed additional theatres in the U.S., Brazil and Colombia during the year ended December 31, 2013.

As of December 31, 2013, we managed our business under two reportable operating segments: U.S. markets and international markets. See Note 22 to the consolidated financial statements.

Cinemark Holdings, Inc. is a Delaware corporation incorporated on August 2, 2006. Our principal executive offices are at 3900 Dallas Parkway, Suite 500, Plano, Texas 75093. Our telephone number is (972) 665-1000. We maintain a corporate website at www.cinemark.com. Our annual reports on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K, and any amendments to those reports filed or furnished pursuant to Section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or the Exchange Act, are available on our website free of charge under the heading “About – Investor Relations – SEC Filings” as soon as practicable after such reports are filed or furnished electronically to the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC. Additionally, all of our filings with the SEC can be accessed on the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov.

Description of Business

We are one of the leaders in the motion picture exhibition industry. As of December 31, 2013, we operated 482 theatres and 5,563 screens in the U.S. and Latin America and approximately 276.6 million patrons attended our theatres worldwide during the year ended December 31, 2013. We are the most geographically diverse worldwide exhibitor, with theatres in thirteen countries as of December 31, 2013. As of December 31, 2013, our U.S. circuit had 334 theatres and 4,457 screens in 40 states and our Latin America circuit had 148 theatres and 1,106 screens.

Revenues, operating income and net income attributable to Cinemark Holdings, Inc. for the year ended December 31, 2013, were $2,682.9 million, $415.5 million and $148.5 million, respectively. At December 31, 2013 we had cash and cash equivalents of $599.9 million and long-term debt of $1,832.8 million. Approximately $243.0 million, or 13%, of our long-term debt accrues interest at variable rates and approximately $9.9 million of our long-term debt matures in 2014.

We selectively build or acquire new theatres in markets where we can establish and maintain a strong market position. During May 2013, we acquired a total of 32 theatres with 483 screens from Rave Real Property Holdco, LLC and certain of its subsidiaries. As a result of this acquisition, we expanded our domestic theatre base into one new state and seven new markets.

We continue to develop new platforms and market adaptive concepts for our domestic theatre circuit, including NextGen, CinèArts, Cinemark Movie Bistro, VIP and other premium concepts. We believe our portfolio of modern high-quality theatres with multiple platforms provides a preferred destination for moviegoers and contributes to our solid cash flows from operating activities. Our significant presence in the U.S. and Latin America has made us an important distribution channel for movie studios, particularly as they look to capitalize on the expanding worldwide box office. Our market leadership is attributable in large part to our senior executives, whose years of industry experience range from 17 to 55 years and who have successfully navigated us through many industry and economic cycles.

Table of Contents

Currently, 100% of our first-run domestic theatres are fully digital and we continue to convert our international theatres, which are approximately 86% digital. We expect to be 100% digital in our international circuit in early 2014. Digital projection technology provides us flexibility in programming and facilitates the exhibition of live and pre-recorded alternative entertainment. We also continue to roll out our Cinemark XD Extreme Digital Cinema, or XD. We have the largest premium large format, or PLF, footprint in our industry. Our XD offers a premium experience utilizing large screens and the latest in digital projection and enhanced custom sound, including Dolby Atmos 11.1 and Barco Auro 20.1. The XD experience includes wall-to-wall and ceiling-to-floor screens, wrap-around sound, plush seating and a maximum comfort entertainment environment for an immersive experience. We charge a premium price for the XD experience. The exceptional XD technology does not require special format movie prints, which allows us the flexibility to play any available digital print we choose, including 3-D content, in the XD auditorium without any print enhancements required. As of December 31, 2013, we had 150 XD auditoriums in our circuit with plans to install 45 to 55 more XD auditoriums during 2014.

Our NextGen concept features wall-to-wall and ceiling-to-floor screens and the latest digital projection and sound technologies in all of the auditoriums of a complex. These theatres generally also have an XD auditorium. Most of our future domestic theatres will incorporate this NextGen concept. As of December 31, 2013, 193 screens within 17 theatres have the NextGen concept.

During 2013, we opened our first Cinemark Movie Bistro locations, which offer in-theatre dining with great tasting food options, such as fresh wraps, hot sandwiches, burgers, and gourmet pizzas, and a selection of beers, wines, and frozen cocktails, all of which can be enjoyed in the comfort of the auditoriums.

During 2014 we will introduce premium concept theatres in the U.S. that will offer luxury amenities, and a wide variety of food and beverage products. We have a similar concept in twenty-nine of our international auditoriums, referred to locally as either Cinemark Premiere or Cinemark Prime. We plan to continue to incorporate this concept in some of our new international theatres.

Motion Picture Exhibition Industry Overview

The motion picture exhibition industry began its conversion to digital projection technology during 2009. Digital projection technology allows filmmakers the ability to showcase imaginative works of art exactly as they were intended, with incredible realism and detail. Digital features are not susceptible to scratching and fading; therefore digital presentations remain clear and sharp for every screening. A digitally produced or digitally converted movie can be distributed to theatres via satellite, physical media, or fiber optic networks. The digitized movie is stored on a computer/server which “serves” it to a digital projector for each screening of the movie. This format enables us to more efficiently move titles between auditoriums within a theatre to appropriately address demand for each title.

Digital projection also allows us to present 3-D content and alternative entertainment such as live and pre-recorded sports programs, concert events, the Metropolitan, or the MET, opera and other special presentations. Three-dimensional technology offers a premium experience with crisp, bright, ultra-realistic images that create an immersive experience for the patron. A premium is charged for a 3-D presentation. Thirty-three titles released during each of 2012 and 2013 were available in 3-D format, and 29 3-D titles are currently expected to be released during 2014. In addition, 35 3-D titles already have release dates reserved during 2015 through 2018.

During 2013, through a joint venture named Digital Cinema Distribution Coalition, or DCDC, the motion picture exhibition industry developed a content delivery network that allows for delivery of all digital content to U.S. theatres via satellite. Delivery of content via satellite may reduce film transportation costs for both distributors and exhibitors, as a portion of the costs to produce and ship hard drives will be eliminated. The industry is also exploring the expansion of this satellite delivery technology to Latin American markets.

Domestic Markets

The U.S. motion picture exhibition industry has a track record of long-term growth, with box office revenues growing at an estimated compound annual growth rate of 1.73% from 2002 to 2012. Against this background of steady long-term growth, the exhibition industry has experienced periodic short-term increases and decreases in attendance, and consequently box office revenues. Industry box office records were set during 2012 due to growth in attendance and ticket price. While 2013 industry statistics have not yet been published, industry sources estimate that 2013 U.S. box office revenues were approximately $10.9 billion, an approximate 1% increase over 2012, and an all-time industry record. During the 2013 summer season, which generally covers May through July, all-time box office revenue records were also set and attendance reached a four-year high.

The following table represents the results of a survey by Motion Picture Association of America, or MPAA, published during March 2013, outlining the historical trends in U.S. box office performance for the ten year period from 2003 to 2012:

2012

   $10.8    1.36    $7.96

Films leading the box office during the year ended December 31, 2013 included Iron Man 3, Despicable Me 2, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Monsters University, Frozen, Man of Steel, Fast & Furious 6, Oz: The Great and Powerful, Gravity, World War Z, Thor: the Dark World, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Croods, Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, The Heat, The Conjuring, We’re the Millers, Identity Thief and The Great Gatsby, among other films.

The film slate for 2014 currently includes sequels such as Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I, Hobbit: There and Back Again, Transformers 4, Amazing Spider-Man 2, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier and new films such as The Lego Movie, Maleficent, and Interstellar, among other films.

International Markets

International box office revenues continue to grow. According to MPAA, international box office revenues were $23.9 billion for the year ended December 31, 2012, which is a result of strong economies, ticket price increases and new theatre construction. According to MPAA, Latin American box office revenues were $2.8 billion for the year ended December 31, 2012, representing an 8% increase from 2011.

Growth in Latin America continues to be fueled by a combination of robust economies, growing populations, an emerging middle class, attractive demographics (i.e., a significant teenage population), substantial retail development, and quality product from Hollywood, including an increasing number of 3-D films. In many Latin American countries, including Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru and Chile, successful local film product can also provide incremental box office growth opportunities.

Table of Contents

We believe many international markets for theatrical exhibition have historically been underserved and that certain of these markets, especially those in Latin America, will continue to experience growth as new theatre concepts and platforms are introduced, film product offerings continue to expand and the local economies continue to grow.

Drivers of Continued Industry Success

We believe the following market trends will drive the continued growth and strength of our industry:

Importance of Theatrical Success in Establishing Movie Brands and Subsequent Markets. Theatrical exhibition has long been the primary distribution channel for new motion picture releases. A successful theatrical release which “brands” a film is one of the major contributors to its success in “downstream” markets, such as digital downloads, DVDs, network and syndicated television, video on-demand, pay-per-view television and the Internet.

Increased Importance of International Markets for Box Office Success. International markets continue to be an increasingly important component of the overall box office revenues generated by Hollywood films, accounting for $23.9 billion, or approximately 69% of 2012 total worldwide box office revenues according to MPAA. (As of the date of this report, 2013 industry data was not yet available.) With the continued growth of the international motion picture exhibition industry, we believe the relative contribution of markets outside North America will become even more significant. Many of the top U.S. films released recently also performed exceptionally well in international markets. Such films included Iron Man 3, which grossed approximately $806.3 million in international markets, or approximately 66% of its worldwide box office, and Despicable Me 2, which grossed approximately $567.1 million in international markets, or 61% of its worldwide box office.

Stable Long-Term Attendance Trends. We believe that long-term trends in motion picture attendance in the U.S. will continue to benefit the industry. Even during the recent recessionary period, attendance levels remained stable as consumers selected the theatre as a preferred value for their discretionary income. With the motion picture exhibition industry’s transition to satellite digital technology, the products offered by motion picture exhibitors continue to expand, attracting a broader base of patrons. According to industry sources, box office growth for 2012 set an industry record and box office during the 2013 summer season reached a four-year high.

Convenient and Affordable Form of Out-Of-Home Entertainment. Movie going continues to be one of the most convenient and affordable forms of out-of-home entertainment, with an estimated average ticket price in the U.S. of $7.96 in 2012. Average prices in 2012 for other forms of out-of-home entertainment in the U.S., including sporting events and theme parks, ranged from approximately $27.00 to $78.00 per ticket according to MPAA. (As of the date of this report, 2013 industry data was not yet available.)

Innovation with Digital and Satellite Technology. Our industry began converting to digital projection technology during 2009. Digital projection combined with satellite delivery allows exhibitors to expand their product offerings, including the presentation of 3-D content and alternative entertainment. Such alternative entertainment includes pre-recorded programs as well as live sports programs, concert events, the MET opera and other special presentations. New and enhanced programming alternatives may expand the industry’s customer base and increase patronage for exhibitors.

Competitive Strengths

We believe the following strengths allow us to compete effectively:

Experienced Management. Led by Chairman and founder Lee Roy Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer Tim Warner, President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer Robert Copple and President-International Valmir Fernandes, our management team has many years of theatre operating experience, ranging

 

5


Table of Contents

from 17 to 55 years, executing a focused strategy that has led to consistent operating results. This management team has successfully navigated us through many industry and economic cycles.

Disciplined Operating Philosophy. We generated operating income and net income attributable to Cinemark Holdings, Inc. of $415.5 million and $148.5 million, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2013. Our solid operating performance is a result of our disciplined operating philosophy that centers on building high-quality market-adaptive theatres, while negotiating favorable theatre level economics, controlling operating costs and effectively reacting to economic and market changes.

Leading Position in Our U.S. Markets. We have a leading market share in the U.S. metropolitan and suburban markets we serve. For the year ended December 31, 2013, we ranked either first or second, based on box office revenues, in 23 out of our top 30 U.S. markets, including the San Francisco Bay Area, Dallas, Houston, Salt Lake City, Sacramento and Pittsburgh.

Located in Top Latin American Markets. Since 1993, we have invested throughout Latin America in response to the continued growth of the region. As of December 31, 2013, we operated 148 theatres and 1,106 screens in 12 countries. Our international screens generated revenues of $783.1 million, or 29.2% of our total revenues, for the year ended December 31, 2013. We have successfully established a significant presence in major cities in the region, with theatres in thirteen of the fifteen largest metropolitan areas in South America. We are the largest exhibitor in Brazil and Argentina. Our geographic diversity makes us an important distribution channel for the movie studios.

State-of-the-Art Theatre Circuit. We offer state-of-the-art theatres, which we believe makes our theatres a preferred destination for moviegoers in our markets. During 2013, we opened 709 new state-of-the-art screens worldwide. We currently have commitments to open 263 additional new screens over the next three years. We have installed digital projection technology in 100% of our U.S. first-run auditoriums and approximately 86% of our international auditoriums, with plans to install digital projection technology in 100% of our international auditoriums in early 2014. Currently, approximately 52% of our U.S. screens and 58% of our international screens are 3-D compatible. We currently have fourteen digital IMAX screens. As of December 31, 2013, we had the industry-leading PLF circuit with 150 XD auditoriums in our theatres. We have plans to install 45 to 55 additional XD auditoriums during 2014. We also continue to develop new theatre concepts in various markets.

Disciplined Growth Strategy. We continue to grow organically as well as through the acquisition of high-quality theatres in select markets. Our growth strategy has centered around achieving a target return on investment while also complementing our existing theatre circuit. We continue to generate significant cash flows from operating activities, which demonstrates the success of our growth strategy. We believe our expected level of cash flows will continue to provide us with the financial flexibility to pursue further growth opportunities, while also allowing us to efficiently service our debt obligations and continue to offer our stockholders a strong dividend yield under our current dividend policy.

Our Strategy

We believe our disciplined operating philosophy and experienced management team will enable us to continue to enhance our leading position in the motion picture exhibition industry. Key components of our strategy include:

Growth in Existing and New Markets. We will continue to seek growth opportunities by building or acquiring high-quality theatres that meet our strategic, financial and demographic criteria. We also monitor economic and market trends to ensure our existing theatres offer a broad range of products, prices and platforms that satisfy our patrons and develop new concepts to adapt to our patrons’ preferences. Our growth strategy is diverse. We opened two locations with our new Cinemark Movie Bistro concept during 2013 and have plans to open two theaters in the U.S. with our new premium concept during 2014. We also have plans to open state-of-the-art theatres in Bolivia in 2014 and Paraguay during 2015.

Continue to Focus on Operational Excellence. We will continue to focus on achieving operational excellence by controlling theatre operating costs and adequately training and motivating our staff while continuing to provide leading customer service. Our consistent margins reflect our ability to anticipate and manage changes in product and patron preferences.

Commitment to Technological Innovation. Our commitment to technological innovation has resulted in us being 100% digital in our U.S. first-run auditoriums as of December 31, 2013, 2,329 of which are 3-D compatible. Approximately 86% of our international auditoriums were digital as of December 31, 2013, 644 of which are 3-D compatible. See further discussion of our digital expansion at “Technology Innovations”. We expect to be 100% digital worldwide in early 2014, with approximately 50-60% of our screens 3-D compatible. We will also continue to expand our worldwide XD auditorium footprint.

Includes Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Guatemala.

We first entered Latin America when we began operating movie theatres in Chile in 1993. Since then, through our focused international strategy, we have developed into the most geographically diverse theatre circuit in the region. We have balanced our risk through a diversified international portfolio, currently operating theatres in thirteen of the fifteen largest metropolitan areas in South America. We have established significant presence in Brazil and Argentina, where we are the largest exhibitor, with 497 and 168 screens, respectively, as of December 31, 2013.

We believe that certain markets within Latin America continue to be underserved as penetration of movie screens per capita in these markets is substantially lower than in the U.S. and European markets. We intend to build and expand our presence in international markets, with emphasis on Latin America, and fund our expansion primarily with cash flow generated in those markets. We are able to mitigate cash flow exposure to currency fluctuations in the markets in which we operate by transacting in their respective local currencies. Our geographic diversity throughout Latin America has allowed us to maintain consistent revenue growth, notwithstanding currency and economic fluctuations that may affect any particular market. Our international revenues were approximately $783.1 million during 2013 compared to $777.7 million during 2012.

Film Licensing

In the domestic marketplace, our corporate film department negotiates with film distributors, which are made up of the traditional major film companies, specialized and art divisions of some of these major film companies, and many other independent film distributors. The film distributors are responsible for determining film release dates and film marketing campaigns and the related expenditures. We are responsible for booking the films in negotiated film licensing zones, which are either free film licensing zones or competitive film licensing zones. In free film licensing zones, movies can be booked without regard to the film bookings of other exhibitors within that area. In competitive film licensing zones, the distributor allocates its movies generally based on demographics, the conditions, capacity and grossing potential of each theatre, and the terms of exhibition. Of the 292 film licensing zones in which our first run U.S. theatres operate, approximately 92% operate in free film licensing zones. In free film licensing zones, we select those films that we believe will be the most successful from those offered by film distributors.

Internationally, our local film personnel negotiate with local offices of major film distributors as well as local film distributors to license films for our international theatres. In the international marketplace, films are not allocated to a single theatre in a geographic film zone, but played by competitive theatres simultaneously. Our theatre personnel focus on providing excellent customer service, and we provide a high-quality facility with the most up-to-date sound systems, comfortable seating and other amenities preferred by our patrons, which we believe gives us a competitive advantage in markets where competing theatres play the same films. Of the 1,106 screens we operate in international markets, approximately 87% have no direct competition from other theatres.

Our film rental fees in the U.S. are generally based on a film’s box office receipts and either mutually agreed upon firm terms, a sliding scale formula, or a mutually agreed upon settlement, subject to the film licensing agreement with the film distributor. Under a firm terms formula, we pay the distributor a mutually agreed upon percentage of box office receipts. Under a sliding scale formula, we pay a percentage of box office revenues using a pre-determined matrix that is based upon box office performance of the film. The settlement process allows for negotiation of film rental fees upon the conclusion of the film run based upon how the film performs. Internationally, our film rental fees are primarily based on mutually agreed upon firm terms that are based upon a specified percentage of box office receipts.

We regularly play art and independent films at many of our U.S. theatres, providing a variety of film choices to our patrons. Bringing art and independent films to our theatres allows us to benefit from the growth in the art and independent market driven by the more mature patron and increased interest in art, foreign and documentary films. The performance of films such as Lee Daniel’s The Butler, 12 Years a Slave, Blue Jasmine and American Hustle have demonstrated the box office potential of art and independent films.

Food and Beverage

Concession sales are our second largest revenue source, representing approximately 32% of total revenues. Concession sales have a much higher margin than admissions sales. We have devoted considerable management effort to increase concession sales and improve operating margins by expanding our offerings and adapting to our customer preferences, as discussed below.

 

   

Concession Product Innovations. Through our Cinemark Movie Bistro concept, we have expanded our concession product offerings to include food options, such as fresh wraps, hot sandwiches, burgers, and gourmet pizzas, and a selection of beers, wines, and frozen cocktails, all of which can be enjoyed in the comfort of the auditoriums. We have also added lobby bars in certain theatres and plan to include VIP lounges in certain of our future theatres.

 

   

Optimization of product mix. We offer concession products that primarily include various sizes and types of popcorn, soft drinks, coffees, juice blends, candy and quickly-prepared or pre-prepared food, such as hot dogs, pizza, pretzel bites, nachos and ice cream. Different varieties and flavors of candy and drinks are offered at theatres based on preferences in that particular market. Our proprietary point of sale system allows us to monitor product sales and make changes to product mix when necessary, which also allows us to quickly take advantage of national as well as regional product launches. Promotions are introduced on a regular basis to increase average concession purchases as well as to attract new buyers. We offer specially priced combinations at many of our theatres. We periodically offer our loyal patrons opportunities to receive a discount on certain products by offering weekly coupons as well as reusable popcorn tubs and soft drink cups that can be refilled at a discount off the regular price.

 

   

Staff training. Employees are continually trained in proper sales techniques. Consumer promotions conducted at the concession stand usually include a motivational element that rewards theatre staff for exceptional sales of certain promotional items.

 

   

Theatre design. Our theatres are designed to optimize efficiencies at the concession stands, which include multiple service stations throughout a theatre to facilitate serving patrons in an expedited manner. We strategically place large concession stands within theatres to heighten visibility, reduce the length of concession lines, and improve traffic flow around the concession stands. We have self-service cafeteria-style concession areas in many of our domestic theatres, which allow customers to select their own refreshments and proceed to the cash register when they are ready. This design allows for efficient service, enhanced choices, impulse purchases and superior visibility of concession items.

 

   

Cost control. We negotiate prices for concession supplies directly with concession vendors and manufacturers to obtain volume rates. Concession supplies are distributed through a national distribution network. The concession distributor supplies and distributes inventory to the theatres, which place orders directly with the vendors to replenish stock. We conduct a weekly inventory of all concession products at each theatre to ensure proper stock levels are maintained for business.

Pre-Feature Screen Advertising

In our domestic markets, our theatres are part of the in-theatre digital network operated by National CineMedia, LLC, or NCM. NCM provides advertising to our theatres through its branded “First Look” pre-feature entertainment program and also handles lobby promotions and displays. We believe that the reach, scope and digital delivery capability of NCM’s network provides an effective platform for national, regional and local advertisers to reach an engaged audience. We receive a monthly theatre access fee for participation in the NCM network. In addition, we are entitled to receive mandatory quarterly distributions of excess cash from NCM. As of December 31, 2013, we had an approximate 19% ownership interest in NCM. See Note 6 to the consolidated financial statements.

During 2011, our wholly-owned subsidiary Flix Media Publicidade E Entretenimento, Ltda., or Flix Media, began handling all of our screen advertising functions in Brazil. Our Flix Media marketing personnel work directly with local advertisers to coordinate screen advertising in our theatres. We have expanded the Flix Media advertising services to another exhibitor in Brazil through a revenue share agreement. In Argentina, we also have in-house personnel that work with local advertisers to arrange screen advertising in our theatres. We are currently integrating our Argentina advertising team with our Flix Media division.

In our other international markets, we outsource our screen advertising to local companies who have established relationships with local advertisers that provide similar benefits as NCM. The terms of our international screen advertising contracts vary by country. In some of these locations, we earn a percentage of the screen advertising revenues collected by our partners and in other locations we are paid a fixed annual fee for access to our screens, while at our other locations, our in-house marketing personnel handle screen advertising. We will continue to expand Flix Media into our other international locations. In addition to screen advertising in our theatres, we intend to expand Flix Media’s services to include, among other things, alternative content, online ticketing, and loyalty initiatives.

Technology Innovations

The motion picture exhibition has undertaken significant technology initiatives over the past few years that have transformed the industry, as discussed below.

Participation in Digital Cinema Implementation Partners

During 2007, us, AMC Entertainment Inc., or AMC, and Regal Entertainment Group, or Regal, entered into a joint venture known as Digital Cinema Implementation Partners LLC, or DCIP, to facilitate the implementation of digital cinema in our U.S. theatres and to establish agreements with major motion picture studios for the financing of digital cinema. Digital cinema developments are managed by DCIP, subject to certain approvals by us, AMC and Regal with each of us having an equal voting interest in DCIP. DCIP’s wholly-owned subsidiary Kasima executed long-term deployment agreements with all of the major motion picture studios, under which Kasima receives a virtual print fee from such studios for each digital presentation. In accordance with these agreements, the digital projection systems deployed by Kasima comply with the technology and security specifications developed by the Digital Cinema Initiatives studio consortium. Kasima leases digital projection systems to us, AMC and Regal under master lease agreements that have an initial term of 12 years.

On March 10, 2010, we signed a master lease agreement and other related agreements (collectively the “agreements”) with Kasima. As of December 31, 2013, we had a 33% voting interest in DCIP and a 24.3% economic interest in DCIP. (See Note 7 to the consolidated financial statements.) As of December 31, 2013, 96% of our 4,457 U.S. auditoriums were digital, 3,619 of which are leased from Kasima and 2,329 of which are equipped for exhibiting 3-D content.

International Markets

In our international markets, we continue to convert our auditoriums to digital projection technology. The digital projection systems we deploy are generally funded with operating cash flows generated by each international country. We also have virtual print fee agreements with certain major studios under which the studios pay us for certain prints shown on the digital projection equipment. As of December 31, 2013, we had 950 digital auditoriums in our international markets, 644 of which are capable of exhibiting 3-D content. Similar to our domestic markets, we expect to be digital 100% in our international markets in early 2014.

Digital Cinema Distribution Coalition

We participate in a joint venture with Regal, AMC, Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc. and Universal Pictures named Digital Cinema Distribution Coalition, or DCDC, which began delivering digital content to theatres via satellite during October 2013. Delivery of content via satellite may reduce film transportation costs for both distributors and exhibitors, as a portion of the costs to produce and ship hard drives will be eliminated. The satellite delivery system established by DCDC is available to all exhibitors and content providers and allows live and store-and-forward content to be delivered to our theatres. The industry is also exploring the expansion of this satellite delivery technology to Latin American markets.

AC JV, LLC

Due to the transformation of technology within our industry, we have the opportunity to continue to expand the content provided to our patrons. During December 2013, we formed a joint venture with Regal and AMC named AC JV, LLC, who then purchased the Fathom event business from NCM. The Fathom event business generally focuses on the marketing and distribution of live and pre-recorded entertainment programming to movie theatres to augment theatres’ feature film schedules. With the formation of AC JV, LLC, we, along with Regal and AMC, can ensure proper resources are focused on the continued development and enhancement of alternative content.

Marketing

In the U.S., we rely on Internet advertising and also newspaper directory film schedules for marketing our products. Radio and television advertising spots are used to promote certain motion pictures and special events. We exhibit previews of coming attractions and films we are currently playing as part of our pre-feature program. We offer patrons access to movie times, the ability to buy and print their tickets in advance and purchase gift cards at our website www.cinemark.com, and via our smart phone and tablet applications. Customers subscribing to our weekly emails receive targeted information about current and upcoming films at their preferred Cinemark theatre(s), including details about advanced ticket sales, special events, concerts and live broadcasts; as well as contests, promotions, and coupons for concession savings. We partner with film distributors to use monthly web contests to drive traffic to our website and to ensure that customers visit often. In addition, we work with all of the film distributors on a regular basis to promote their films with local, regional and national programs that are exclusive to our theatres. These programs may involve customer contests, cross-promotions with the media and third parties and other means to increase patronage for a particular film showing at our theatres.

We created a smartphone and tablet application called CineMode that allows patrons the opportunity to earn rewards while being courteous during the show. Our innovative technology was designed to address texting and other cell phone distractions, which is the number one complaint of movie-goers. While in CineMode, the smart phone screen is automatically dimmed and patrons are prompted to silence their volume. If CineMode is enabled for the duration of the movie, patrons are rewarded with exclusive digital rewards and offers that can be used at their next visit to Cinemark. CineMode facilitates contact with our patrons and this initiative provides an opportunity for us to further improve our relationships with the studios and our vendors via couponing and promotions, such as discounted digital downloads. To date, more than three and a half million patrons have already downloaded CineMode.

Table of Contents

Internationally, we exhibit upcoming and current film previews on-screen, partner with film distributors for certain promotions and advertise our new locations through various forms of media and events. We partner with large multi-national corporations in the large metropolitan areas in which we have theatres to promote our brand and image as well as increase attendance levels at our theatres. Our customers are encouraged to register on our website to receive weekly information by email for showtime information, invitations to special screenings, sponsored events and promotional information. In addition, our customers can request to receive showtime information on their cell phones. We also have loyalty programs in some of our international markets that allow customers to pay a nominal fee for a membership card that provides them with certain admissions and concession discounts. In addition, we have a smartphone application, which allows consumers to check showtimes and purchase tickets for our Brazil theatres.

Our domestic and international marketing departments also focus on expanding ancillary revenue, which includes the sale of our gift cards and our SuperSaver discount tickets. We market these programs to such business representatives as realtors, human resource managers, incentive program managers and hospital and pharmaceutical personnel. Gift cards can be purchased for certain of our locations at our theatres or online through our website, www.cinemark.com. SuperSavers are also sold online at www.cinemark.com or via phone, fax or email by our local corporate offices and are also available at certain retailers in the U.S. Our marketing departments also coordinate the use of our auditoriums, generally during off-peak times, for corporate meetings, private movie screenings, brand and product launches, education and training sessions or other private events, which contribute to our ancillary revenue.

Online and Mobile Sales

Our patrons may purchase advance tickets for all of our domestic screens and a majority of our international screens by accessing our corporate website at www.cinemark.com. Advance tickets may also be purchased for our domestic screens at www.fandango.com. Our mobile phone and tablet applications also offer patrons the ability to purchase tickets. Our Internet initiatives help improve customer satisfaction, allowing patrons who purchase tickets over the Internet to bypass lines at the box office by printing their tickets at home, picking up their tickets at kiosks located at the theatre, or scanning a barcode confirmation from their mobile device at the usher stand.

Point of Sale Systems

We have developed our own proprietary point of sale system to enhance our ability to maximize revenues, control costs and efficiently manage operations. The system is currently installed in all of our U.S. theatres. The point of sale system provides corporate management with real-time admissions and concession revenues data and reports to allow for timely changes to movie schedules, including extending film runs, increasing the number of screens on which successful movies are being played, or substituting films when gross receipts do not meet expectations. Real-time seating, as well as reserved seating, and box office information is available to box office personnel, preventing overselling of a particular film and providing faster and more accurate responses to customer inquiries regarding showtimes and available seating. The system tracks concession sales by product, provides in-theatre inventory reports for efficient inventory management and control, offers numerous ticket pricing options, connects with digital concession signage for real-time pricing modifications, integrates Internet ticket sales and processes credit card transactions. Barcode scanners, pole displays, touch screens, credit card readers and other equipment are integrated with the system to enhance its functionality and provide print-at-home and mobile ticketing. In our international locations, we currently use other point of sale systems that have been developed by third parties, which have been certified as compliant with applicable governmental regulations and provide generally the same capabilities as our proprietary point of sale system.

Competition

We are one of the leaders in the motion picture exhibition industry. We compete against local, regional, national and international exhibitors with respect to attracting patrons, licensing films and developing new theatre sites. Our primary U.S. competitors include Regal, AMC and Carmike Cinemas, Inc. and our primary international competitors, which vary by country, include GSR, Cinépolis, Village Theatres and Cinemundo.

Of the 292 film licensing zones in which our first run U.S. theatres operate, approximately 92% operate in free film licensing zones. In free film licensing zones, we select those films that we believe will be the most successful from those offered by film distributors. Where there is competition, the distributor allocates their movies generally based on demographics, the conditions, capacity and grossing potential of each theatre, and the terms of exhibition. Of the 1,106 screens we operate outside of the U.S., approximately 87% of those screens have no direct competition from other theatres. In areas where we face direct competition, our success in attracting patrons depends on location, theatre capacity, quality of projection and sound equipment, film showtime availability, customer service quality, and ticket prices.

We compete for new theatre sites with other movie theatre exhibitors as well as other entertainment venues. Securing a potential site depends upon factors such as committed investment and resources, theatre design and capacity, revenue and patron potential, and financial stability.

We also face competition from a number of other motion picture exhibition delivery systems, such as digital downloads, DVDs, network and syndicated television, video on-demand, pay-per-view television and the Internet. We also face competition from other forms of entertainment competing for the public’s leisure time and disposable income, such as concerts, theme parks and sporting events.

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.

Corporate Operations

Our worldwide headquarters is located in Plano, Texas. Personnel at our corporate headquarters provide oversight for our domestic and international theatres. Personnel at our Plano headquarters include our executive team and department heads in charge of film licensing, food and beverage, theatre operations, theatre construction and maintenance, real estate, human resources, marketing, legal, finance, accounting, tax, audit and information technology support. Our U.S. operations are divided into eighteen regions, primarily organized geographically, each of which is headed by a region leader. We have seven regional offices in Latin America responsible for the local management of theatres in twelve countries (Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Guatemala are operated out of one Central American regional office). Each regional office is headed by a general manager and generally includes personnel in film licensing, marketing, human resources, information systems, operations and accounting. We have a chief financial officer in Brazil and Argentina, which are our two largest international markets. The regional offices are staffed with experienced personnel from the region to mitigate cultural and operational barriers.

Employees

We have approximately 17,200 employees in the U.S., approximately 18% of whom are full time employees and 82% of whom are part time employees. We have approximately 7,700 employees in our international

 

14


Table of Contents

markets, approximately 41% of whom are full time employees and approximately 59% of whom are part time employees. Some of our international locations are subject to union regulations. We regard our relations with our employees to be satisfactory.

Regulations

The distribution of motion pictures is largely regulated by federal and state antitrust laws and has been the subject of numerous antitrust cases. The manner in which we can license films from certain major film distributors is subject to consent decrees resulting from these cases. Consent decrees bind certain major film distributors and require the films of such distributors to be offered and licensed to exhibitors, including us, on a theatre-by-theatre and film-by-film basis. Consequently, exhibitors cannot enter into long-term arrangements with major distributors, but must negotiate for licenses on a theatre-by-theatre and film-by-film basis.

We are subject to various general regulations applicable to our operations including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, or the ADA. We develop new theatres to be accessible to the disabled and we believe we are substantially compliant with current regulations relating to accommodating the disabled. Although we believe that our theatres comply with the ADA, we have been a party to lawsuits which claim that our handicapped seating arrangements do not comply with the ADA or that we are required to provide closed captioning for patrons who are deaf or are severely hearing impaired and descriptive devices for patrons who are blind.

Our theatre operations are also subject to federal, state and local laws governing such matters as wages, working conditions, citizenship, health and sanitation requirements and various business licensing and permitting.

Financial Information About Geographic Areas

We currently have operations in the U.S., Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Guatemala, which are reflected in the consolidated financial statements. See Note 22 to the consolidated financial statements for segment information and financial information by geographic area.

Item 1A. Risk Factors

Our business depends on film production and performance.

Our business depends on both the availability of suitable films for exhibition in our theatres and the success of those films in our markets. Poor performance of films, the disruption in the production of films due to events such as a strike by directors, writers or actors, a reduction in financing options for the film distributors, or a reduction in the marketing efforts of the film distributors to promote their films could have an adverse effect on our business by resulting in fewer patrons and reduced revenues.

A deterioration in relationships with film distributors could adversely affect our ability to obtain commercially successful films.

We rely on the film distributors to supply the films shown in our theatres. The film distribution business is highly concentrated, with seven major film distributors accounting for approximately 86% of U.S. box office revenues and 44 of the top 50 grossing films during 2013. Numerous antitrust cases and consent decrees resulting from these antitrust cases impact the distribution of films. Film distributors license films to exhibitors on a theatre-by-theatre and film-by-film basis. Consequently, we cannot guarantee a supply of films by entering into long-term arrangements with major distributors. We are therefore required to negotiate licenses for each film and for each theatre. A deterioration in our relationship with any of the seven major film distributors could adversely

 

15


Table of Contents

affect our ability to obtain commercially successful films and to negotiate favorable licensing terms for such films, both of which could adversely affect our business and operating results.

Our results of operations vary from period to period based upon the quantity and quality of the motion pictures that we show in our theatres.

Our results of operations vary from period to period based upon the quantity and quality of the motion pictures that we show in our theatres. The major film distributors generally release the films they anticipate will be most successful during the summer and holiday seasons. Consequently, we typically generate higher revenues during these periods. Due to the dependency on the success of films released from one period to the next, results of operations for one period may not be indicative of the results for the following period or the same period in the following year.

We face intense competition for patrons and films which may adversely affect our business.

The motion picture industry is highly competitive. We compete against local, regional, national and international exhibitors. We compete for both patrons and licensing of films. The competition for patrons is dependent upon such factors as location, theatre capacity, quality of projection and sound equipment, film showtime availability, customer service quality, and ticket prices. The principal competitive factors with respect to film licensing include the theatre’s location and its demographics, the condition, capacity and grossing potential of each theatre, and licensing terms. If we are unable to attract patrons or to license successful films, our business may be adversely affected.

An increase in the use of alternative or “downstream” film distribution channels and other competing forms of entertainment may reduce movie theatre attendance and limit revenue growth.

We face competition for patrons from a number of alternative film distribution channels, such as digital downloads, DVDs, network and syndicated television, video on-demand, pay-per-view television and the Internet. We also compete with other forms of entertainment, such as concerts, theme parks and sporting events, for our patrons’ leisure time and disposable income. A significant increase in popularity of these alternative film distribution channels or competing forms of entertainment could have an adverse effect on our business and results of operations.

Our results of operations may be impacted by shrinking video release windows.

Over the last decade, the average video release window, which represents the time that elapses from the date of a film’s theatrical release to the date a film is available to consumers at home, an important downstream market, has decreased from approximately six months to approximately three to four months. If patrons choose to wait for an in-home release rather than attend a theatre to view the film, it may adversely impact our business and results of operations, financial condition and cash flows. Film studios have started to offer consumers a premium video on-demand option for certain films 60 days following the theatrical release, which caused the release window to shrink further for certain films. We cannot assure you that these release windows, which are determined by the studios, will not shrink further or be eliminated altogether, which could have an adverse impact on our business and results of operations.

General political, social and economic conditions can adversely affect our attendance.

Our results of operations are dependent on general political, social and economic conditions, and the impact of such conditions on our theatre operating costs and on the willingness of consumers to spend money at movie theatres. If consumers’ discretionary income declines as a result of an economic downturn, our operations could be adversely affected. If theatre operating costs, such as utility costs, increase due to political or economic changes, our results of operations could be adversely affected. Political events, such as terrorist attacks, and

 

16


Table of Contents

health-related epidemics, such as flu outbreaks, could cause people to avoid our theatres or other public places where large crowds are in attendance. In addition, a natural disaster, such as a hurricane or an earthquake, could impact our ability to operate certain of our theatres, which could adversely affect our results of operations.

Our foreign operations are subject to adverse regulations, economic instability and currency exchange risk.

We have 148 theatres with 1,106 screens in twelve countries in Latin America. Brazil represented approximately 12% of our consolidated 2013 revenues. Governmental regulation of the motion picture industry in foreign markets differs from that in the United States. Changes in regulations affecting prices, quota systems requiring the exhibition of locally-produced films and restrictions on ownership of property may adversely affect our international operations. Our international operations are subject to certain political, economic and other uncertainties not encountered by our domestic operations, including risks of severe economic downturns and high inflation. We also face risks of currency fluctuations, hard currency shortages and controls of foreign currency exchange and transfers abroad, all of which could have an adverse effect on the results of our international operations.

We have substantial long-term lease and debt obligations, which may restrict our ability to fund current and future operations and that restrict our ability to enter into certain transactions.

We have, and will continue to have, significant long-term debt service obligations and long-term lease obligations. As of December 31, 2013, we had $1,832.8 million in long-term debt obligations, $216.4 million in capital lease obligations and $2,065.1 million in long-term operating lease obligations. We incurred interest expense of $124.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. We incurred $307.9 million of facility lease expense under operating leases for the year ended December 31, 2013. Our substantial lease and debt obligations pose risk to you by:

 

   

making it more difficult for us to satisfy our obligations;

 

   

requiring us to dedicate a substantial portion of our cash flows to payments on our lease and debt obligations, thereby reducing the availability of our cash flows from operations to fund working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions and other corporate requirements and to pay dividends;

 

   

impeding our ability to obtain additional financing in the future for working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions and general corporate purposes;

 

   

subjecting us to the risk of increased sensitivity to interest rate increases on our variable rate debt, including our borrowings under our amended senior secured credit facility; and

 

   

making us more vulnerable to a downturn in our business and competitive pressures and limiting our flexibility to plan for, or react to, changes in our industry or the economy.

Our ability to make scheduled payments of principal and interest with respect to our indebtedness will depend on our ability to generate positive cash flows and on our future financial results. Our ability to generate positive cash flows is subject to general economic, financial, competitive, regulatory and other factors that are beyond our control. We cannot assure you that we will continue to generate cash flows at current levels, or that future borrowings will be available under our amended senior secured credit facility, in an amount sufficient to enable us to pay our indebtedness. If our cash flows and capital resources are insufficient to fund our lease and debt service obligations, we may be forced to reduce or delay capital expenditures, sell assets or operations, seek additional capital or restructure or refinance our indebtedness. We may not be able to take any of these actions, and these actions may not be successful or permit us to meet our scheduled debt service obligations and these actions may be restricted under the terms of our existing or future debt agreements, including our amended senior secured credit facility.

If we fail to make any required payment under the agreements governing our leases and indebtedness or fail to comply with the financial and operating covenants contained in them, we would be in default, and as a result,

 

17


Table of Contents

our debt holders would have the ability to require that we immediately repay our outstanding indebtedness and the lenders under our amended senior secured credit facility could terminate their commitments to lend us money and foreclose against the assets securing their borrowings. We could be forced into bankruptcy or liquidation, which could result in the loss of your investment. The acceleration of our indebtedness under one agreement may permit acceleration of indebtedness under other agreements that contain cross-default and cross-acceleration provisions. If our indebtedness is accelerated, we may not be able to repay our indebtedness or borrow sufficient funds to refinance it. Even if we are able to obtain new financing, it may not be on commercially reasonable terms or on terms that are acceptable to us. If our debt holders require immediate payment, we may not have sufficient assets to satisfy our obligations under our indebtedness.

We may not be able to generate additional revenues or continue to realize value from our investment in NCM.

In 2005, we joined Regal and AMC as founding members of NCM. As of December 31, 2013, we had an ownership interest in NCM of approximately 19%. We receive a monthly theatre access fee under our Exhibitor Services Agreement with NCM and we are entitled to receive mandatory quarterly distributions of excess cash from NCM. During the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2013, the Company received approximately $7.1 million and $8.0 million in other revenues from NCM, respectively, and $20.8 million and $20.7 million in cash distributions in excess of our investment in NCM, respectively. Cinema advertising is a small component of the U.S. advertising market and therefore, NCM competes with larger, established and well known media platforms such as broadcast radio and television, cable and satellite television, outdoor advertising and Internet portals. In-theatre advertising may not continue to attract advertisers or NCM’s in-theatre advertising format may not continue to be received favorably by theatre patrons. If NCM is unable to continue to generate consistent advertising revenues, its results of operations may be adversely affected and our investment in and distributions and revenues from NCM may be adversely impacted.

A failure to adapt to future technological innovations could impact our ability to compete effectively and could adversely affect our results of operations.

While we continue to implement the latest technological innovations, such as digital projection, 3-D and satellite distribution technologies, new technological innovations continue to impact our industry. If we are unable to respond to or invest in changes in technology and the technological preferences of our customers, we may not be able to compete with other exhibitors or other entertainment venues, which could adversely affect our results of operations.

We are subject to uncertainties relating to future expansion plans, including our ability to identify suitable acquisition candidates or site locations, and to obtain financing for such activities on favorable terms or at all.

We have greatly expanded our operations over the last decade through targeted worldwide theatre development and acquisitions. We will continue to pursue a strategy of expansion that will involve the development of new theatres and may involve acquisitions of existing theatres and theatre circuits both in the U.S. and internationally. There is significant competition for new site locations and for existing theatre and theatre circuit acquisition opportunities. As a result of such competition, we may not be able to acquire attractive site locations, existing theatres or theatre circuits on terms we consider acceptable. Acquisitions and expansion opportunities may divert a significant amount of management’s time away from the operation of our business. Growth by acquisition also involves risks relating to difficulties in integrating the operations and personnel of acquired companies and the potential loss of key employees of acquired companies. We cannot assure you that our expansion strategy will result in improvements to our business, financial condition, profitability, or cash flows. Further, our expansion programs may require financing above our existing borrowing capacity and operating cash flows. We cannot assure you that we will be able to obtain such financing or that such financing will be available to us on acceptable terms or at all.

If we do not comply with the ADA and the safe harbor framework included in the consent order we entered into with the Department of Justice, or the DOJ, we could be subject to further litigation.

Our theatres must comply with Title III of the ADA and analogous state and local laws. Compliance with the ADA requires among other things that public facilities “reasonably accommodate” individuals with disabilities and that new construction or alterations made to “commercial facilities” conform to accessibility guidelines unless “structurally impracticable” for new construction or technically infeasible for alterations. On November 15, 2004, we and the Department of Justice, or DOJ, entered into a consent order, which was filed with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division. Under the consent order, the DOJ approved a safe harbor framework for us to construct all of our future stadium-style movie theatres. The DOJ has stipulated that all theatres built in compliance with the consent order will comply with the wheelchair seating requirements of the ADA. If we fail to comply with the ADA, remedies could include imposition of injunctive relief, fines, awards for damages to private litigants and additional capital expenditures to remedy non-compliance. Imposition of significant fines, damage awards or capital expenditures to cure non-compliance could adversely affect our business and operating results.

We depend on key personnel for our current and future performance.

Our current and future performance depends to a significant degree upon the continued contributions of our senior management team and other key personnel. The loss or unavailability of any member of our senior management team or a key employee could significantly impair our business. We cannot assure you that we would be able to locate or employ qualified replacements for senior management or key employees on acceptable terms.

We are subject to impairment losses due to potential declines in the fair value of our assets.

We review 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. We assess many factors when determining whether to impair individual theatre assets, including actual theatre level cash flows, future years 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 our assessment of impairment of individual theatre assets. Long-lived assets are evaluated for impairment on an individual theatre basis, which we believe is the lowest applicable level for which there are identifiable cash flows. When estimated fair value is determined to be lower than the carrying value of the theatre assets, the theatre assets are written down to their estimated fair value. Since we evaluate long-lived assets for impairment at the theatre level, if a theatre is directly and individually impacted by increased competition, adverse changes in market demographics or adverse changes in the development or condition of the areas surrounding the theatre, we may record impairment charges to reflect the decline in estimated fair value of that theatre.

We have a significant amount of goodwill. We evaluate goodwill for impairment at the reporting unit level at least annually during the fourth quarter or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value of goodwill may not be fully recoverable. Goodwill is evaluated for impairment using a two-step approach under which we 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 fair value, a second step would be performed to measure the potential goodwill impairment. Fair values are based on historical and projected operating performance, recent market transactions and current industry trading multiples. Declines in our stock price or market capitalization, declines in our attendance due to increased competition in certain regions and/or countries or economic factors that lead to a decline in attendance in any given region or country could negatively affect our estimated fair values and could result in further impairments of goodwill. As of December 31, 2013, the estimated fair value of goodwill for all of our reporting units exceeded their carrying values by at least 10%.

We also have a significant amount of tradename intangible assets. Tradename intangible assets are tested for impairment at least annually during the fourth quarter or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be fully recoverable. We estimate the fair value of our tradenames by applying an estimated market royalty rate that could be charged for the use of our tradename to forecasted future revenues, with an adjustment for the present value of such royalties. If the estimated fair value is less than the carrying value, the tradename intangible asset is written down to its estimated fair value. Significant judgment is involved in estimating market royalty rates and long-term revenue forecasts. Management’s estimates are based on historical and projected revenue performance and industry trends. As of December 31, 2013, the estimated fair value of our tradename intangible assets exceeded their carrying values by at least 10%.

We recorded asset impairment charges of $7.0 million, $3.0 million and $3.8 million for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013, respectively. We cannot assure you that additional impairment charges will not be required in the future, and such charges may have an adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations. See “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and Notes 9 and 10 to the consolidated financial statements.

The impairment or insolvency of certain financial institutions could adversely affect us.

We have exposure to different counterparties with regard to our interest rate swap agreements. These transactions expose us to credit risk in the event of a default by one or more of our counterparties to such agreements. We also have exposure to financial institutions used as depositories of our corporate cash balances. If our counterparties or financial institutions become impaired or insolvent, this could have an adverse impact on our results of operations or impair our ability to access our cash.

A credit market crisis may adversely affect our ability to raise capital and may materially impact our operations.

Severe dislocations and liquidity disruptions in the credit markets could materially impact our ability to obtain debt financing on reasonable terms or at all. The inability to access debt financing on reasonable terms could materially impact our ability to make acquisitions or significantly expand our business in the future.

We may be subject to liability under environmental laws and regulations.

We own and operate a large number of theatres and other properties within the U.S. and internationally, which may be subject to various foreign, federal, state and local laws and regulations relating to the protection of the environment or human health. Such environmental laws and regulations include those that impose liability for the investigation and remediation of spills or releases of hazardous materials. We may incur such liability, including for any currently or formerly owned, leased or operated property, or for any site, to which we may have disposed, or arranged for the disposal of, hazardous materials or wastes. Certain of these laws and regulations may impose liability, including on a joint and several liability, which can result in a liable party being obliged to pay for greater than its share, regardless of fault or the legality of the original disposal. Environmental conditions relating to our properties or operations could have an adverse effect on our business and results of operations and cash flows.

Our ability to pay dividends may be limited or otherwise restricted.

Our ability to pay dividends is limited by our status as a holding company and the terms of our senior notes indentures, our senior subordinated notes indenture, and our amended senior secured credit facility, which restrict our ability to pay dividends and the ability of certain of our subsidiaries to pay dividends, directly or indirectly, to us. Under our debt instruments, we may pay a cash dividend up to a specified amount, provided we have satisfied certain financial covenants in, and are not in default under, our debt instruments. The declaration of future dividends on our common stock, par value $0.001 per share, or Common Stock, will be at the discretion of

our board of directors and will depend upon many factors, including our results of operations, financial condition, earnings, capital requirements, limitations in our debt agreements and legal requirements. See Note 12 to the consolidated financial statements for further discussion of our long term debt agreements.

Provisions in our corporate documents and certain agreements, as well as Delaware law, may hinder a change of control.

Provisions in our amended and restated certificate of incorporation and bylaws, as well as provisions of the Delaware General Corporation Law, could discourage unsolicited proposals to acquire us, even though such proposals may be beneficial to you. These provisions include:

 

   

authorization of our board of directors to issue shares of preferred stock without stockholder approval;

 

   

a board of directors classified into three classes of directors with the directors of each class having staggered, three-year terms;

 

   

provisions regulating the ability of our stockholders to nominate directors for election or to bring matters for action at annual meetings of our stockholders; and

 

   

provisions of Delaware law that restrict many business combinations and provide that directors serving on classified boards of directors, such as ours, may be removed only for cause.

Certain provisions of our 4.875% senior notes indenture, our 5.125% senior notes indenture, our 7.375% senior subordinated notes indenture and our amended senior secured credit facility may have the effect of delaying or preventing future transactions involving a “change of control.” A “change of control” would require us to make an offer to the holders of our 4.875% senior notes to repurchase all of the outstanding notes at a purchase price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding plus accrued and unpaid interest to the date of the purchase. A “change of control” would require us to make an offer to the holders of our 5.125% senior notes to repurchase all of the outstanding notes at a purchase price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding plus accrued and unpaid interest to the date of purchase. A “change of control”, as defined in the 7.375% senior subordinated notes indenture, would require us to make an offer to repurchase the senior subordinated notes at a price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, through the date of repurchase. A “change of control” would also be an event of default under our amended senior secured credit facility.

The market price of our Common Stock may be volatile.

There can be no assurance that an active trading market for our Common Stock will continue. The securities markets have experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations in recent years and the market prices of the securities of companies have been particularly volatile. This market volatility, as well as general economic or political conditions, could reduce the market price of our Common Stock regardless of our operating performance. In addition, our operating results could be below the expectations of investment analysts and investors and, in response, the market price of our Common Stock may decrease significantly and prevent investors from reselling their shares of our Common Stock at or above a market price that is favorable to other stockholders. In the past, companies that have experienced volatility in the market price of their stock have been the subject of securities class action litigation. If we were the subject of securities class action litigation, it could result in substantial costs, liabilities and a diversion of management’s attention and resources.

Future sales of our Common Stock may adversely affect the prevailing market price.

If a large number of shares of our Common Stock is sold in the open market, or if there is a perception that such sales will occur, the trading price of our Common Stock could decrease. In addition, the sale of these shares could impair our ability to raise capital through the sale of additional Common Stock. As of December 31, 2013, we had an aggregate of 180,105,414 shares of our Common Stock authorized but unissued and not reserved for

specific purposes. In general, we may issue all of these shares without any action or approval by our stockholders. We may issue shares of our Common Stock in connection with acquisitions.

As of December 31, 2013, we had 115,382,538 shares of our Common Stock outstanding. Of these shares, approximately 103,679,157 shares were freely tradable. The remaining shares of our Common Stock were “restricted securities” as that term is defined in Rule 144 under the Securities Act. Restricted securities may not be resold in a public distribution except in compliance with the registration requirements of the Securities Act or pursuant to an exemption therefrom, including the exemptions provided by Regulation S and Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act.

We cannot predict whether substantial amounts of our Common Stock will be sold in the open market in anticipation of, or following, any divestiture by any of our large stockholders, our directors or executive officers of their shares of Common Stock.

As of December 31, 2013, there were 8,027,186 shares of our Common Stock reserved for issuance under our Amended and Restated 2006 Long Term Incentive Plan, of which 14,584 shares of Common Stock were issuable upon exercise of options outstanding as of December 31, 2013. The sale of shares issued upon the exercise of stock options could further dilute your investment in our Common Stock and adversely affect our stock price.

Legislative or regulatory initiatives related to global warming/climate change concerns may negatively impact our business.

Recently, there has been an increasing focus and continuous debate on global climate change including increased attention from regulatory agencies and legislative bodies. This increased focus may lead to new initiatives directed at regulating an as yet unspecified array of environmental matters. Legislative, regulatory or other efforts in the U.S. to combat climate change could result in future increases in the cost of raw materials, taxes, transportation and utilities for our vendors and for us which would result in higher operating costs for the Company. Also, compliance of our theatres and accompanying real estate with new and revised environmental, zoning, land-use or building codes, laws, rules or regulations, could have a material and adverse effect on our business. However, we are unable to predict at this time, the potential effects, if any, that any future environmental initiatives may have on our business.

Item 2. Properties

United States

As of December 31, 2013, in the U.S., we operated 292 theatres with 3,856 screens pursuant to leases and own the land and building for 42 theatres with 601 screens. Our leases are generally entered into on a long-term basis with terms, including optional renewal periods, generally ranging from 20 to 45 years. As of December 31, 2013, approximately 9% of our theatre leases in the U.S., covering 25 theatres with 193 screens, have remaining terms, including optional renewal periods, of less than six years. Approximately 10% of our theatre leases in the U.S., covering 29 theatres with 250 screens, have remaining terms, including optional renewal periods, of between six and 15 years and approximately 81% of our theatre leases in the U.S., covering 238 theatres with 3,413 screens, have remaining terms, including optional renewal periods, of more than 15 years. The leases generally provide for a fixed monthly minimum rent payment, with certain leases also subject to additional percentage rent if a target annual revenue level is achieved. We lease an office building in Plano, Texas for our worldwide headquarters. We also lease office space in Frisco, Texas for our theatre support group and McKinney, Texas for some of our maintenance personnel.

International

As of December 31, 2013, internationally, we operated 148 theatres with 1,106 screens, all of which are leased. Our international leases are generally entered into on a long term basis with terms, including optional renewal periods, generally ranging from 5 to 30 years. The leases generally provide for contingent rental based upon operating results with an annual minimum. As of December 31, 2013, approximately 9% of our international theatre leases, covering 13 theatres with 111 screens, have remaining terms, including optional renewal periods, of less than six years. Approximately 47% of our international theatre leases, covering 70 theatres and 550 screens, have remaining terms, including optional renewal periods, of between six and 15 years and approximately 44% of our international theatre leases, covering 65 theatres and 445 screens, have remaining terms, including optional renewal periods, of more than 15 years. We also lease office space in seven regions in Latin America for our local management.

See Note 21 to the consolidated financial statements for information regarding our minimum lease commitments. We periodically review the profitability of each of our theatres, particularly those whose lease terms are nearing expiration, to determine whether to continue its operations.

Item 3. Legal Proceedings

From time to time, we are involved in other various legal proceedings arising from the ordinary course of our 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. We believe our potential liability, with respect to these types of proceedings currently pending, is not material, individually or in the aggregate, to our financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

Item 4. Mine Safety Disclosures

Not applicable.

Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and accompanying notes included in this report. This discussion contains forward-looking statements. See “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” and “Risk Factors” for a discussion of the uncertainties and risk associated with these statements.

Overview

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 and Guatemala. We operated theatres in Mexico until November 15, 2013. As of December 31, 2013, we managed our business under two reportable operating segments — U.S. markets and international markets. See Note 22 to the consolidated financial statements.

Revenues and Expenses

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 contracts with NCM have assisted us in expanding our offerings to domestic advertisers and broadening ancillary revenue sources such as digital video monitor advertising and third party branding. Historically, we have also offered alternative entertainment, such as live and pre-recorded sports programs, concert events, the MET opera and other special presentations in our theatres through our relationship with NCM. We will continue to offer this entertainment through our recently formed joint venture, AC JV, LLC. Our Flix Media initiative has allowed us to expand our screen advertising within our international circuit and to other international exhibitors. Films leading the box office during the year ended December 31, 2013 included Iron Man 3, Despicable Me 2, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Monsters University, Frozen, Man of Steel, Fast & Furious 6, Oz: The Great and Powerful, Gravity, World War Z, Thor: the Dark World, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Croods, Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, The Heat, The Conjuring, We’re the Millers, Identity Thief and The Great Gatsby, among other films. Our revenues are affected by changes in attendance and concession revenues per patron. Attendance is primarily affected by the quality and quantity of films released by motion picture studios. The film slate for 2014 currently includes sequels such as Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I, Hobbit: There and Back Again, Transformers 4, Amazing Spider-Man 2, How to Train Your Dragon 2, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier and new films such as The Lego Movie, Maleficent, and Interstellar, 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. Film rental rates are generally negotiated on a film-by-film and theatre-by-theatre basis. 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.

Table of Contents

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 certain costs that have both fixed and variable components such as utilities, property taxes, janitorial costs, repairs and maintenance and security services.

Critical Accounting Policies

We prepare our consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S., or U.S. GAAP. As such, we are required to make certain estimates and assumptions that we believe are reasonable based upon the information available. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented. The significant accounting policies, which we believe are the most critical to aid in fully understanding and evaluating our reported consolidated financial results, include the following:

Revenue and Expense Recognition

Revenues are recognized when admissions and concession sales are received at the box office. Other revenues primarily consist of screen advertising. Screen advertising revenues are recognized over the period that the related advertising is delivered on-screen or in-theatre. We record proceeds from the sale of gift cards and other advanced sale-type certificates in current liabilities and recognize admissions or concession revenue when a holder redeems the card or certificate. We recognize unredeemed gift cards and other advanced sale-type certificates as revenue only after such a period of time indicates, based on historical experience, the likelihood of redemption is remote, and based on applicable laws and regulations. In evaluating the likelihood of redemption, we consider the period outstanding, the level and frequency of activity, and the period of inactivity.

Film rental costs are accrued based on the applicable box office receipts and either mutually agreed upon firm terms or a sliding scale formula, which are generally established prior to the opening of the film, or estimates of the final mutually agreed upon settlement, which occurs at the conclusion of the film run, subject to the film licensing arrangement. Under a firm terms formula, we pay the distributor a mutually agreed upon percentage of box office receipts, which reflects either a mutually agreed upon aggregate rate for the life of the film or rates that decline over the term of the run. Under a sliding scale formula, we pay a percentage of box office revenues using a pre-determined matrix that is based upon box office performance of the film. The settlement process allows for negotiation of film rental fees upon the conclusion of the film run based upon how the film performs. Estimates are based on the expected success of a film. The success of a film can typically be determined a few weeks after a film is released when initial box office performance of the film is known. Accordingly, final settlements typically approximate estimates since box office receipts are known at the time the estimate is made and the expected success of a film can typically be estimated early in the film’s run. If actual settlements are different than those estimates, film rental costs are adjusted at that time. Our advertising costs are expensed as incurred.

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 monthly percentage rent only, which is accrued each month based on actual revenues. Certain of our other theatres require payment of percentage rent in addition to fixed monthly rent if an annual target revenue level is achieved. Percentage rent expense is estimated and recorded for these theatres on a monthly basis if the theatre’s historical performance or forecasted performance indicates that the annual target revenue level will be reached. Once annual revenues are known, which is generally at the end of the year, the percentage rent expense is adjusted at that time. We record the fixed minimum rent payments on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

Table of Contents

Theatre properties and equipment are depreciated using the straight-line method over their estimated useful lives. In estimating the useful lives of our theatre properties and equipment, we have relied upon our experience with such assets and our historical replacement period. We periodically evaluate these estimates and assumptions and adjust them as necessary. Adjustments to the expected lives of assets are accounted for on a prospective basis through depreciation expense. Leasehold improvements for which we pay and to which we have title are amortized over the lesser of useful life or the lease term.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

We review 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. We assess many factors including the following to determine whether to impair individual theatre assets:

 

   

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 our assessment of impairment of individual theatre assets.

Long-lived assets are evaluated for impairment on an individual theatre basis, which we believe 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 a period of approximately twenty years for fee owned properties. If the estimated undiscounted cash flows are not sufficient to recover a long-lived asset’s carrying value, we then compare 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 2011, 2012 and 2013. The long-lived asset impairment charges related to theatre properties recorded during each of the periods presented are 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 of Goodwill and Intangible Assets

We evaluate 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. We evaluate goodwill for impairment at the reporting unit level and have allocated goodwill to the reporting unit based on an estimate of its relative fair value. Management considers the reporting unit to be each of our eighteen regions in the U.S. and each of our seven international countries (Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Guatemala are considered one reporting unit). The evaluation is a two-step approach requiring us 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

Table of Contents

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. Fair value is determined based on a multiple of cash flows, which was seven and a half times for the evaluations performed during 2011 and 2012 and eight times for the evaluation performed during 2013. We increased the multiple of cash flows used for the evaluation performed during the year ended December 31, 2013 due to the increase in industry trading multiples, and the increase in our stock price and resulting market capitalization. As of December 31, 2013, the estimated fair value of goodwill for all of our reporting units exceeded their carrying value by at least 10%.

Tradename intangible assets are tested for impairment at least annually during the fourth quarter or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be fully recoverable. We estimate the fair value of our tradenames by applying an estimated market royalty rate that could be charged for the use of our tradename to forecasted future revenues, with an adjustment for the present value of such royalties. If the estimated fair value is less than the carrying value, the tradename intangible asset is written down to its estimated fair value. Significant judgment is involved in estimating market royalty rates and long-term revenue forecasts. 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 revenue performance and industry trends. As of December 31, 2013, the estimated fair value of our tradename intangible assets exceeded their carrying values by at least 10%.

Income Taxes

We use an asset and liability approach to financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income taxes are provided when tax laws and financial accounting standards differ with respect to the amount of income for a year and the basis of assets and liabilities. A valuation allowance is recorded to reduce the carrying amount of deferred tax assets unless it is more likely than not that such assets will be realized. Income taxes are provided on unremitted earnings from foreign subsidiaries unless such earnings are expected to be indefinitely reinvested. Income taxes have also been provided for potential tax assessments. The evaluation of an uncertain tax position is a two-step process. The first step is recognition: We determine whether it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained upon examination, including resolution of any related appeals or litigation processes, based on the technical merits of the position. In evaluating whether a tax position has met the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold, we presume that the position would be examined by the appropriate taxing authority that would have full knowledge of all relevant information. The second step is measurement: A tax position that meets the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold is measured to determine the amount of benefit to recognize in the financial statements. The tax position is measured at the largest amount of benefit that is greater than 50 percent likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. Differences between tax positions taken in a tax return and amounts recognized in the financial statements result in (1) a change in a liability for income taxes payable or (2) a change in an income tax refund receivable, a deferred tax asset or a deferred tax liability or both (1) and (2). We accrue interest and penalties on uncertain tax positions.

Accounting for Investment in National CineMedia, LLC and Related Agreements

We have an investment in NCM. NCM operates a digital in-theatre network in the U.S. for providing cinema advertising and non-film events. Upon joining NCM, the Company and NCM entered into an Exhibitor Services Agreement, pursuant to which NCM provides advertising, promotion and event services to the Company’s theatres. On February 13, 2007, National CineMedia, Inc., or “NCM Inc.”, a newly formed entity that serves as a member and the sole manager of NCM, completed an initial public offering of its common stock. In connection with the NCM Inc. initial public offering, the Company amended its operating agreement and the Exhibitor Services Agreement, or ESA, with NCM and received proceeds related to the modification of the ESA and the Company’s sale of certain of its shares in NCM. The ESA modification reflected a shift from circuit share expense under the prior Exhibitor Services Agreement, which obligated NCM to pay the Company a percentage of revenue, to a monthly theatre access fee, which significantly reduced the contractual amounts paid to the Company by NCM. The Company recorded the proceeds related to the ESA modification as deferred

revenue, which is being amortized into other revenues over the life of the agreement using the units of revenue method. As a result of the proceeds received as part of the NCM, Inc. initial public offering, the Company had a negative basis in its original membership units in NCM (referred to herein as its Tranche 1 Investment). The Company does not recognize undistributed equity in the earnings on its 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 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.

Pursuant to a Common Unit Adjustment Agreement dated as of February 13, 2007 between NCM, Inc. and Cinemark, AMC and Regal, collectively referred to as its Founding Members, 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. To account for the receipt of additional common units under the Common Unit Adjustment Agreement, the Company follows the guidance in ASC 323-10-35-29 (formerly EITF 02-18, Accounting for Subsequent Investments in an Investee after Suspension of Equity Loss Recognition) by analogy, which also refers to AICPA Technical Practice Aid 2220.14, which indicates that if a subsequent investment is made in an equity method investee that has experienced significant losses, the investor must determine if the subsequent investment constitutes funding of prior losses. The Company concluded that the construction or acquisition of new theatres that has led to the common unit adjustments equates to making additional investments in National CineMedia. The Company evaluated the receipt of the additional common units in National CineMedia and the assets exchanged for these additional units and has determined that the right to use its incremental new screens would not be considered funding of prior losses. The Company accounts for these additional common units (referred to herein as its Tranche 2 Investment) as a separate investment than its Tranche 1 Investment. 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. The Tranche 2 Investment is accounted for following the equity method, with undistributed equity earnings related to its Tranche 2 Investment included as a component of equity in income of affiliates and distributions received related to its Tranche 2 Investment are recorded as a reduction of its investment basis.

U.S. The increase in admissions revenues of $131.8 million was primarily attributable to an 8.3% increase in attendance and a 3.4% increase in average ticket price from $6.72 for 2012 to $6.95 for 2013. The increase in concession revenues of $63.1 million was primarily attributable to the 8.3% increase in attendance and a 3.0% increase in concession revenues per patron from $3.34 for 2012 to $3.44 for 2013. Our revenues and attendance for 2013 also benefited from the inclusion of the 32 Rave theatres acquired on May 29, 2013 (see Note 5 to the consolidated financial statements). The increase in average ticket price was primarily due to price increases and the pricing at acquired theatres. The increase in concession revenues per patron was primarily due to incremental sales and price increases. The increase in other revenues was primarily attributable to the 8.3% increase in attendance, which resulted in increases in screen advertising, video game and other promotional revenues.

 

 

International. The decrease in admissions revenues of $6.1 million was primarily attributable to a 0.7% decrease in attendance and a 0.4% decrease in average ticket price from $4.80 for 2012 to $4.78 for 2013. The increase in concession revenues of $10.7 million was primarily attributable to the 5.3% increase in concession revenues per patron from $2.25 for 2012 to $2.37 for 2013. The decrease in attendance was partly due to the sale of our Mexico theatres on November 15, 2013. The decrease in average ticket price was primarily due to the unfavorable impact of exchange rates in certain countries in which we operate. The increase in concession revenues per patron was primarily due to incremental sales and price increases, partially offset by the unfavorable impact of exchange rates in certain countries in which we operate.

U.S. Film rentals and advertising costs were $687.3 million, or 55.8% of admissions revenues, for 2013 compared to $610.5 million, or 55.5% of admissions revenues, for 2012. The increase in film rentals and advertising costs of $76.8 million was primarily due to the $131.8 million increase in admissions revenues. Concession supplies expense was $83.7 million, or 13.7% of concession revenues, for 2013 compared to $71.1 million, or 13.0% of concession revenues, for 2012. The increase in the concession supplies rate was primarily due to increases in inventory procurement costs.

Salaries and wages increased to $192.5 million for 2013 from $174.2 million for 2012. Facility lease expense increased to $215.5 million for 2013 from $191.1 million for 2012. Utilities and other costs increased to $204.5 million for 2013 from $182.9 million for 2012. All of the above-mentioned theatre operating costs for 2013 increased due to the inclusion of the 32 Rave theatres acquired on May 29, 2013 (see Note 5 to the consolidated financial statements). Utilities and other costs were also impacted by increased equipment lease and personal property tax expenses related to digital and 3-D equipment, increased security expense and increased repairs and maintenance expense.

 

 

International. Film rentals and advertising costs were $232.2 million, or 48.9% of admissions revenues, for 2013 compared to $234.6 million, or 48.8% of admissions revenues, for 2012. Concession supplies expense was $52.0 million, or 22.0% of concession revenues, for 2013 compared to $52.4 million, or 23.3% of concession revenues, for 2012. The decrease in the concession supplies rate is due to the mix of products sold during 2013 compared to 2012 and the impact of concession price increases. Each of the expenses previously discussed were also impacted by the change in exchange rates in certain countries in which we operate.

Salaries and wages increased to $76.8 million for 2013 from $73.2 million for 2012 primarily due to new theatres and increased wage rates. Facility lease expense increased to $92.4 million for 2013 from $90.5 for 2012 primarily due to new theatres and increased common area maintenance expense. Utilities and other costs increased to $101.2 million for 2013 from $97.8 million for 2012 partially due to new theatres and increased property taxes. Each of the expenses previously discussed were also impacted by the change in exchange rates in certain countries in which we operate.

General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses increased to $165.4 million for 2013 from $148.6 million for 2012. The increase was primarily due to increased salaries and incentive compensation expense of approximately $7.1 million, increased professional fees of $5.0 million and increased credit card fees of $3.6 million. General and administrative expenses for 2013 also included approximately $1.5 million in severance expense and approximately $1.8 million in share based award compensation expense related to the sale of our Mexico theatres on November 15, 2013.

Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense, including amortization of favorable/ unfavorable leases, was $164.0 million for 2013 compared to $147.7 million for 2012. The increase was primarily due to new theatres, including the 32 Rave theatres acquired on May 29, 2013.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets. We recorded asset impairment charges on assets held and used of $3.8 million for 2013 compared to $3.0 million for 2012. Impairment charges for 2013 were related to theatre properties, impacting twelve of our twenty-six reporting units. Impairment charges for 2012 were related to theatre properties, impacting fourteen of our twenty-four 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 9 and 10 to our consolidated financial statements.

(Gain) Loss on Sale of Assets and Other. We recorded a gain on sale of assets and other of $3.9 million during 2013 compared to a loss of $12.2 million during 2012. The gain recorded during 2013 included a gain of $3.5 million related to the sale of our Mexico theatres and a gain of $2.3 million related to the sale of one theatre

in Argentina partially offset by the retirement of equipment replaced during the period. The loss recorded during 2012 included a $6.7 million lease termination reserve for a closed theatre and the retirement of certain theatre equipment that was replaced during the year.

Interest Expense. Interest costs incurred, including amortization of debt issue costs, were $124.7 million for 2013 compared to $123.7 million for 2012. See Note 12 to our consolidated financial statements for further discussion of our long-term debt.

Loss on Early Retirement of Debt. We recorded a loss on early retirement of debt of approximately $72.3 million during 2013 as a result of the redemption of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s 8.625% Senior Notes on June 24, 2013. The loss on early retirement of debt included approximately $56.6 million for a make-whole premium paid and the write-off of approximately $8.0 million in unamortized bond discount and $7.6 million in unamortized debt issue costs and the payment of $0.1 million of other fees. We recorded a loss on early retirement of debt of $5.6 million during 2012 related to the amendment and restatement of our senior secured credit facility. See Note 12 to our consolidated financial statements for further discussion of our long-term debt.

Distributions from NCM. We recorded distributions received from NCM of $20.7 million during 2013 and $20.8 million during 2012, which were in excess of the carrying value of our Tranche 1 Investment. See Note 6 to our consolidated financial statements.

Equity in Income of Affiliates. We recorded equity in income of affiliates of $22.7 million during 2013 and $13.1 million during 2012. The equity in income of affiliates recorded during 2013 primarily included approximately $11.6 million of income related to our equity investment in NCM (see Note 6 to our consolidated financial statements) and approximately $11.2 million of income related to our equity investment in DCIP (see Note 7 to our consolidated financial statements). The equity in income of affiliates recorded during 2012 primarily included approximately $4.4 million of income related to our equity investment in NCM and approximately $8.9 million of income related to our equity investment in DCIP.

Income Taxes. Income tax expense of $113.3 million was recorded for 2013 compared to $125.4 million recorded for 2012. The effective tax rate for 2013 was 42.9%. The effective tax rate for 2012 was 42.2%. See Note 20 to our consolidated financial statements.

U.S. The increase in admissions revenues of $66.0 million was primarily attributable to a 3.2% increase in attendance and a 3.1% increase in average ticket price from $6.52 for 2011 to $6.72 for 2012. The increase in concession revenues of $42.8 million was primarily attributable to the 3.2% increase in attendance and a 5.0% increase in concession revenues per patron from $3.18 for 2011 to $3.34 for 2012. The increase in attendance was primarily due to new theatres. The increase in average ticket price was primarily due to price increases and an increase in 3-D and XD ticket sales. The increase in concession revenues per patron was primarily due to incremental sales and price increases.

 

 

International. The increase in admissions revenues of $42.8 million was primarily attributable to a 12.6% increase in attendance, partially offset by a 2.6% decrease in average ticket price from $4.93 for 2011 to $4.80 for 2012. The increase in concession revenues of $31.8 million was primarily attributable to the 12.6% increase in attendance and a 3.2% increase in concession revenues per patron from $2.18 for 2011 to $2.25 for 2012. The increase in attendance was primarily due to new theatres, including the ten theatres in Argentina acquired during August 2011. The decrease in average ticket price was primarily due to the unfavorable impact of exchange rates in certain countries in which we operate, partially offset by price increases. The increase in concession revenues per patron was primarily due to price increases, partially offset by the unfavorable impact of exchange rates in certain countries in which we operate. The 10.7% increase in other revenues was primarily due to increased screen advertising revenues in Brazil, Argentina and Mexico, partially offset by the unfavorable impact of exchange rates in certain countries in which we operate.

U.S. Film rentals and advertising costs were $610.5 million, or 55.5% of admissions revenues, for 2012 compared to $574.2 million, or 55.6% of admissions revenues, for 2011. The increase in film rentals and advertising costs of $36.3 million was primarily due to the $66.0 million increase in admissions revenues. Concession supplies expense was $71.1 million, or 13.0% of concession revenues, for 2012 compared to $64.0 million, or 12.7% of concession revenues, for 2011. The increase in the concession supplies rate was primarily due to increases in inventory procurement costs.

Salaries and wages increased to $174.2 million for 2012 from $167.5 million for 2011 primarily due to new theatres.

International. Film rentals and advertising costs were $234.6 million, or 48.8% of admissions revenues, for 2012 compared to $224.4 million, or 51.2% of admissions revenues, for 2011. The decrease in the film rentals and advertising rate is primarily due to the impact of the increased virtual print fees that we earn from studios on certain films played in our international locations. Concession supplies expense was $52.4 million, or 23.3% of concession revenues, for 2012 compared to $48.1 million, or 24.9% of concession revenues, for 2011. The decrease in the concession supplies rate is due to the mix of products sold during 2012 compared to 2011 and the impact of concession price increases.

Table of Contents

Salaries and wages increased to $73.2 million for 2012 from $59.0 million for 2011 primarily due to new theatres, including the ten theatres in Argentina acquired during August 2011 and increased wage rates. Facility lease expense was $90.5 million for 2012 and 2011. Utilities and other costs increased to $97.8 million for 2012 from $85.2 million for 2011 primarily due to new theatres, including the ten theatres in Argentina acquired during August 2011, increased janitorial costs and increased screen advertising commissions and related expenses. Each of the expenses previously discussed were also impacted by the change in exchange rates in certain countries in which we operate.

General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses increased to $148.6 million for 2012 from $127.6 million for 2011. The increase was primarily due to increased salaries and incentive compensation expense of approximately $7.7 million, increased share based awards compensation expense of $5.4 million, increased professional fees of $1.8 million and additional overhead expenses associated with the ten theatres in Argentina acquired in August 2011.

Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense, including amortization of favorable/ unfavorable leases, was $147.7 million for 2012 compared to $154.4 million for 2011. The decrease was primarily due to the impact of accelerated depreciation taken on our domestic 35 millimeter projection systems that were replaced with digital projection systems during 2011. We recorded approximately $10.6 million of depreciation expense related to our domestic 35 millimeter projection systems during 2011. Our domestic 35 millimeter projection systems were fully depreciated as of December 31, 2011.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets. We recorded asset impairment charges on assets held and used of $3.0 million for 2012 compared to $7.0 million for 2011. Impairment charges for 2012 were related to theatre properties, impacting fourteen of our twenty-four reporting units. Impairment charges for 2011 were related to theatre properties, impacting fourteen of our twenty-four 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 9 and 10 to our consolidated financial statements.

Loss on Sale of Assets and Other. We recorded a loss on sale of assets and other of $12.2 million during 2012 compared to $8.8 million during 2011. The loss recorded during 2012 included a $6.7 million lease termination reserve for a closed theatre and the retirement of certain theatre equipment that was replaced during the year. The loss recorded during 2011 included a loss of $2.3 million related to a settlement for a previously terminated interest rate swap agreement, a loss of $1.0 million related to the sale of digital projection systems to DCIP and the write-off of theatre properties and equipment primarily as a result of theatre remodels.

Interest Expense. Interest costs incurred, including amortization of debt issue costs, were $123.7 million for 2012 compared to $123.1 million for 2011. See Note 12 to our consolidated financial statements for further discussion of our long-term debt.

Loss on Early Retirement of Debt. We recorded a loss on early retirement of debt of $5.6 million during 2012 related to the amendment and restatement of our senior secured credit facility. We recorded a loss on early retirement of debt of $4.9 million during 2011 related to the prepayment of approximately $157.2 million of the unextended portion of our term loan debt. The loss for the 2011 period included the write-off of $2.2 million of unamortized debt issue costs related to the portion of the term loan debt that was prepaid and the reclassification of $2.7 million from accumulated other comprehensive loss to earnings as a result of our determination that quarterly interest payments hedged by certain of our interest rate swap agreements are no longer probable to occur. See Note 12 to our consolidated financial statements for further discussion of our long-term debt.

Distributions from NCM. We recorded distributions received from NCM of $20.8 million during 2012 and $24.2 million during 2011, which were in excess of the carrying value of our Tranche 1 Investment. See Note 6 to our consolidated financial statements.

Loss on Marketable Securities — RealD. We recorded a loss on our investment in RealD of $12.6 million during 2011 due to an other-than-temporary impairment of our investment. The loss recorded represented the cumulative net unrealized holding losses we had previously recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss. These cumulative net unrealized holding losses were recognized as a loss during 2011 due to the length of time and extent to which RealD’s stock price had been below our basis in the stock. See Note 8 to our consolidated financial statements.

Equity in Income of Affiliates. We recorded equity in income of affiliates of $13.1 million during 2012 and $5.7 million during 2011. The equity in income of affiliates recorded during 2012 primarily included approximately $4.4 million of income related to our equity investment in NCM (see Note 6 to our consolidated financial statements) and approximately $8.9 million of income related to our equity investment in DCIP (see Note 7 to our consolidated financial statements). The equity in income of affiliates recorded during 2011 primarily included approximately $5.4 million of income related to our equity investment in NCM and approximately $0.5 million of income related to our equity investment in DCIP.

Income Taxes. Income tax expense of $125.4 million was recorded for 2012 compared to $73.1 million recorded for 2011. The effective tax rate for 2012 was 42.2%. The effective tax rate for 2011 was 35.5%. See Note 20 to our consolidated financial statements.

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, a majority 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 amounted to $391.2 million, $395.2 million and $309.7 million for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013, respectively. Cash provided by operating activities was lower in 2013 primarily due to the make-whole premium of $56.6 million paid to redeem the 8.625% Senior Notes, which was included in net income.

Investing Activities

Our investing activities have been principally related to the development 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 amended senior secured credit facility. Cash used for investing activities amounted to $247.1 million, $234.3 million and $364.7 million for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013, respectively. Cash used for investing activities for the year ended December 31, 2013 included the acquisition of 34 theatres in the U.S. for approximately $259.2 million and increased capital expenditures, partially offset by proceeds of approximately $126.2 million from the sale of our theatres in Mexico.

Capital expenditures for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013 were as follows (in millions):

We continue to invest in our U.S. theatre circuit. We built ten new theatres and 113 screens, acquired 34 theatres with 513 screens and closed or sold eight theatres with 85 screens during the year ended December 31, 2013, bringing our total domestic screen count to 4,457. At December 31, 2013, we had signed commitments to

open eight new theatres with 90 screens in domestic markets during 2014 and open five new theatres with 62 screens subsequent to 2014. We estimate the remaining capital expenditures for the development of these 152 domestic screens will be approximately $90 million. Actual expenditures for continued theatre development and acquisitions are subject to change based upon the availability of attractive opportunities.

We also continue to invest in our international theatre circuit. We built 13 new theatres and 83 screens and closed or sold 32 theatres and 301 screens during the year ended December 31, 2013, bringing our total international screen count to 1,106. At December 31, 2013, we had signed commitments to open 13 new theatres and 88 screens in international markets during 2014 and open three new theatres with 23 screens subsequent to 2014. We estimate the remaining capital expenditures for the development of these 111 international screens will be approximately $70 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 amended senior secured credit facility, and proceeds from debt issuances, sale leaseback transactions and/or sales of excess real estate.

Financing Activities

Cash provided by (used for) financing activities was $(78.4) million, $63.4 million and $(76.2) million during the years ended December 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013, respectively. See Note 4 to the consolidated financial statements for a summary of dividends declared and paid during the years ended December 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Cash provided by financing activities for the year ended December 31, 2012 includes proceeds of $700.0 million from the amended senior secured credit facility and proceeds of $400.0 million from the issuance of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s 5.125% Senior Notes. A majority of these proceeds were used to pay off the remaining $899.0 million term loan outstanding under the former senior secured credit facility. Cash used for financing activities for the year ended December 31, 2013 included proceeds from the issuance of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s 4.875% Senior Notes, partially offset by the redemption of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s 8.625% Senior Notes. See below for further information regarding these transactions.

During December 2013, we entered into a series of agreements with Regal, AMC and NCM that resulted in the formation of a new joint venture that now owns the “Fathom Events” division formerly operated by NCM. In conjunction with the formation of this joint venture, called AC JV, LLC (“AC”), we received ownership units in AC in exchange for a five-year Promissory Note payable to NCM for $8.3 million that bears interest at 5% per annum and requires annual principal and interest payments, with the first of such payments due on December 26, 2014. See Note 16 to the consolidated financial statements for more information on the transaction.

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.

4.875% Senior Notes

On May 24, 2013, Cinemark USA, Inc. issued $530.0 million aggregate principal amount of 4.875% Senior Notes due 2023, at par value, referred to herein as the 4.875% Senior Notes. Proceeds, after payment of fees, were used to finance a redemption of the 8.625% Senior Notes due 2019 discussed below. Interest on the 4.875% Senior Notes is payable on June 1 and December 1 of each year, beginning December 1, 2013. The 4.875% Senior Notes mature on June 1, 2023.

The 4.875% Senior Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a joint and several senior unsecured basis by certain of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s subsidiaries that guarantee, assume or become liable with respect to any of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s or a guarantor’s debt. The 4.875% Senior Notes and the guarantees are senior unsecured obligations and rank equally in right of payment with all of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s and its guarantor’s existing and future senior unsecured debt and senior in right of payment to all of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s and its guarantor’s existing and future senior subordinated debt. The 4.875% Senior Notes and the guarantees are effectively subordinated to all of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s and its guarantor’s existing and future secured debt to the extent of the value of the assets securing such debt, including all borrowings under Cinemark USA, Inc.’s Amended Senior Secured Credit Facility. The 4.875% Senior Notes and the guarantees are structurally subordinated to all existing and future debt and other liabilities of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s subsidiaries that do not guarantee the 4.875% Senior Notes.

The indenture to the 4.875% Senior Notes contains covenants that limit, among other things, the ability of Cinemark USA, Inc. and certain of its subsidiaries to (1) make investments or other restricted payments, including paying dividends, making other distributions or repurchasing subordinated debt or equity, (2) incur additional indebtedness and issue preferred stock, (3) enter into transactions with affiliates, (4) enter new lines of business, (5) merge or consolidate with, or sell all or substantially all of its assets to, another person and (6) create liens. As of December 31, 2013, Cinemark USA, Inc. could have distributed up to approximately $1,451.9 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. Upon a change of control, as defined in the indenture governing the 4.875% Senior Notes, Cinemark USA, Inc. would be required to make an offer to repurchase the 4.875% Senior Notes at a price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount outstanding plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, through the date of repurchase. The indenture governing the 4.875% Senior Notes 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 December 31, 2013 was approximately 6.4 to 1.

Prior to June 1, 2018, Cinemark USA, Inc. may redeem all or any part of the 4.875% Senior Notes at its option at 100% of the principal amount plus a make-whole premium plus accrued and unpaid interest on the 4.875% Senior Notes to the date of redemption. After June 1, 2018, Cinemark USA, Inc. may redeem the 4.875% Senior Notes in whole or in part at redemption prices specified in the indenture. In addition, prior to June 1, 2016, Cinemark USA, Inc. may redeem up to 35% of the aggregate principal amount of the 4.875% Senior Notes from the net proceeds of certain equity offerings at the redemption price set forth in the indenture.

On June 26, 2013, Cinemark USA, Inc. and its guarantor subsidiaries filed a registration statement with the SEC pursuant to which Cinemark USA, Inc. offered to exchange the 4.875% Senior Notes for substantially identical notes registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, that do not contain terms restricting the transfer thereof or providing for registration rights. The registration statement was declared effective by the SEC on July 9, 2013. On August 7, 2013, Cinemark USA, Inc. completed the exchange of registered 4.875% Senior Notes for all of the outstanding 4.875% Senior Notes.

Amended Senior Secured Credit Facility

On December 18, 2012, Cinemark USA, Inc. amended and restated its senior secured credit facility to include a seven year $700.0 million term loan and a five year $100.0 million revolving credit line, referred to

Table of Contents

herein as the Amended Senior Secured Credit Facility. The proceeds from the Amended Senior Secured Credit Facility, combined with a portion of the proceeds from the 5.125% Senior Notes discussed below, were used to refinance Cinemark USA, Inc.’s Former Senior Secured Credit Facility. The term loan under the Amended Senior Secured Credit Facility matures in December 2019. The revolving credit line, which was undrawn at closing and remained undrawn as of December 31, 2013, matures in December 2017. Quarterly principal payments in the amount of $1.75 million are due on the term loan beginning March 2013 through September 2019 with the remaining principal of $652.8 million due on December 18, 2019.

Interest on the term loan accrues at Cinemark USA, Inc.’s option at: (A) the base rate equal to the higher of (1) the prime lending rate as set forth on the British Banking Association Telerate page 5, or (2) the federal funds effective rate from time to time plus 0.50%, plus a margin of 2.0% per annum, or (B) a “eurodollar rate” plus a margin of 3.0% per annum. Interest on the revolving credit line accrues, at Cinemark USA, Inc.’s option, at: (A) a base rate equal to the higher of (1) the prime lending rate as set forth on the British Banking Association Telerate page 5 and (2) the federal funds effective rate from time to time plus 0.50%, plus a margin that ranges from 1.00% to 1.75% per annum, or (B) a “eurodollar rate” 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.

Cinemark USA, Inc.’s obligations under the Amended Senior Secured Credit Facility are guaranteed by Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and certain of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s domestic subsidiaries and are secured by mortgages on certain fee and leasehold properties and security interests in substantially all of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s and the guarantors’ personal property, including, without limitation, pledges of all of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s capital stock, all of the capital stock of certain of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s domestic subsidiaries and 65% of the voting stock of certain of its foreign subsidiaries.

The Amended 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 Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s 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, and 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 Amended Senior Secured Credit Facility.

The dividend restriction contained in the Amended 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 Amended 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 Amended Senior Secured Credit Facility, and (c) certain other defined amounts. As of December 31, 2013, Cinemark USA, Inc. could have distributed up to approximately $1,570.1 million to its parent company and sole stockholder, Cinemark Holdings, Inc., under the terms of the Amended Senior Secured Credit Facility, subject to its available cash and other borrowing restrictions outlined in the agreement.

At December 31, 2013, there was $693.0 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 Amended Senior Secured Credit Facility at December 31, 2013 was approximately 4.0% per annum.

The 5.125% Senior Notes and the guarantees are effectively subordinated to all of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s and its guarantor’s existing and future secured debt to the extent of the value of the assets securing such debt, including all borrowings under Cinemark USA, Inc.’s amended senior secured credit facility. The 5.125% Senior Notes and the guarantees are structurally subordinated to all existing and future debt and other liabilities of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s subsidiaries that do not guarantee the senior notes.

The indenture to the 5.125% Senior Notes contains covenants that limit, among other things, the ability of Cinemark USA, Inc. and certain of its subsidiaries to (1) make investments or other restricted payments, including paying dividends, making other distributions or repurchasing subordinated debt or equity, (2) incur additional indebtedness and issue preferred stock, (3) enter into transactions with affiliates, (4) enter new lines of business, (5) merge or consolidate with, or sell all or substantially all of its assets to, another person and (6) create liens.

The Senior Subordinated Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a joint and several senior subordinated unsecured basis by certain of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s subsidiaries that guarantee, assume or become liable with respect to any of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s or a guarantor’s other debt.

Covenant Compliance

As of December 31, 2013, we believe we were in full compliance with all agreements, including all related covenants, governing our outstanding debt.

Ratings

We are rated by nationally recognized rating agencies. The rating scales and methodologies used to derive individual ratings may vary from agency to agency. Credit ratings are issued by credit rating agencies based on evaluations of our ability to pay back our outstanding debt and the likelihood that we would default on that debt prior to its maturity. The credit ratings issued by the credit rating agencies represent the credit rating agency’s evaluation of both qualitative and quantitative information for our company. The credit ratings that are issued are based on the credit rating agency’s judgment and experience in determining what information should be considered in giving a rating to a particular company. Ratings are always subject to change and there can be no assurance that our current ratings will continue for any given period of time. A downgrade of our debt ratings, depending on the extent, could increase the cost to borrow funds. Below are our latest credit ratings, which were published by the respective agency during May 2013.

New Accounting Pronouncements

During February 2013, the FASB issued ASU 2013-02, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (“ASU 2013-02”). ASU 2013-02 amended existing guidance by requiring additional disclosure either on the face of the income statement or in the notes to the financial statements of significant amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income. ASU 2013-02 requires prospective adoption and affects financial statement disclosures only. For public entities, the new disclosure requirements are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2012. The adoption of ASU 2013-02 did not have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements. See Note 13 for changes in accumulated other comprehensive loss, including amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive loss, for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

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 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

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

Interest Rate Risk

We are currently party to variable rate debt facilities. An increase or decrease in interest rates would affect our interest expense relating to our variable rate debt facilities. At December 31, 2013, there was an aggregate of approximately $243.0 million of variable rate debt outstanding under these facilities, which excludes $450.0 million of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s term loan debt that is hedged with the Company’s interest rate swap agreements as discussed below. Based on the interest rates in effect on the variable rate debt outstanding at December 31, 2013, a 100 basis point increase in market interest rates would increase our annual interest expense by approximately $2.4 million.

All of our current interest rate swap agreements qualify for cash flow hedge accounting. The fair values of the interest rate swaps are recorded on our consolidated balance sheet as an asset or liability with the effective portion of the interest rate swaps’ gains or losses reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive loss and the ineffective portion reported in earnings.

Below is a summary of our interest rate swap agreements as of December 31, 2013:

Includes $450.0 million of the Cinemark USA, Inc. term loan, which represents the debt currently hedged with the Company’s interest rate swap agreements.

Foreign Currency Exchange Rate Risk

We are also exposed to market risk arising from changes in foreign currency exchange rates as a result of our international operations. Generally, we export from the U.S. certain of the equipment and interior finish items and other operating supplies used by our international subsidiaries. A majority of the revenues and operating expenses of our international subsidiaries are transacted in the country’s local currency. U.S. GAAP requires that our subsidiaries use the currency of the primary economic environment in which they operate as their functional currency. If our subsidiaries operate in a highly inflationary economy, U.S. GAAP requires that the U.S. dollar be used as the functional currency for the subsidiary. Currency fluctuations in the countries in which we operate result in us reporting exchange gains (losses) or foreign currency translation adjustments. Based upon our equity ownership in our international subsidiaries as of December 31, 2013, holding everything else constant, a 10% immediate, simultaneous, unfavorable change in all of the foreign currency exchange rates to which we are exposed, would decrease the aggregate net book value of our investments in our international subsidiaries by approximately $50 million and would decrease the aggregate net income of our international subsidiaries for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2012 and 2013 by approximately $9 million, $8 million and $7 million, respectively.

Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data

The financial statements and supplementary data are listed on the Index on page F-1 of this Form 10-K. Such financial statements and supplementary data are included herein beginning on page F-3.

Item 9. Changes in and Disagreements With Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure

None.

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of the Effectiveness of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As of December 31, 2013, under the supervision and with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we carried out an evaluation required by the Exchange Act of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) of the Exchange Act. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that, as of December 31, 2013, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and were effective to provide reasonable assurance that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Exchange Act Rules 13a-15 that occurred during the quarter ended December 31, 2013 that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) of the Exchange Act. The Company’s internal control framework and processes are designed to provide reasonable assurance to management and the board of directors regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of the Company’s consolidated financial statements in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. Management has assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2013 based on criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission, or COSO, in Internal Control —Integrated Framework (1992). As a result of this assessment, management concluded that, as of December 31, 2013, our internal control over financial reporting was effective.

Certifications of our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, which are required in accordance with Rule 13a-14 of the Exchange Act, are attached as exhibits to this Annual Report. This “Controls and Procedures” section includes the information concerning the controls evaluation referred to in the certifications, and it should be read in conjunction with the certifications for a more complete understanding of the topics presented.

The Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, Deloitte & Touche LLP, with direct access to the Company’s board of directors through its Audit Committee, have audited the consolidated financial statements prepared by the Company. Their report on the consolidated financial statements is included in Part II, Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data. Deloitte & Touche LLP has issued an attestation report on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Deloitte & Touche LLP’s report on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting is included herein.

Limitations on Controls

Management does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will prevent or detect all errors or fraud. Any control system, no matter how well designed and operated, is based upon certain assumptions and can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that its objectives will be met. Further, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that misstatements due to error or fraud will not occur or that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected.

Item 9B. Other Information

None.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Board of Directors of

Cinemark Holdings, Inc.

Plano, Texas

We have audited the internal control over financial reporting of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2013, based on criteria established in Internal Control — Integrated Framework (1992) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. The Company’s management is responsible for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting, included in the accompanying management’s report on internal control over financial reporting. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting based on our audit.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. Our audit included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk, and performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

A company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the company’s principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, and effected by the company’s board of directors, management, and other personnel to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Because of the inherent limitations of internal control over financial reporting, including the possibility of collusion or improper management override of controls, material misstatements due to error or fraud may not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Also, projections of any evaluation of the effectiveness of the internal control over financial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

In our opinion, the Company maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2013, based on the criteria established in Internal Control — Integrated Framework (1992) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission.

We have also audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the consolidated financial statements and financial statement schedule as of and for the year ended December 31, 2013 of the Company and our report dated February 28, 2014 expressed an unqualified opinion on those financial statements and financial statement schedule.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Board of Directors of

Cinemark Holdings, Inc.

Plano, Texas

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2012 and 2013, and the related consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, equity, and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2013. Our audits also included the financial statement schedule listed in the Index at Item 15. These financial statements and financial statement schedule are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the financial statements and financial statement schedule based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, such consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2012 and 2013, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2013, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Also, in our opinion, such financial statement schedule, when considered in relation to the basic consolidated financial statements taken as a whole, presents fairly, in all material respects, the information set forth therein.

We have also audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States), the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2013, based on the criteria established in Internal Control — Integrated Framework (1992) issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission and our report dated February 28, 2014 expressed an unqualified opinion on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
