During December 2013, the Company, Regal and AMC (collectively the “Founding Members”) and NCM entered into a series of agreements that resulted in the formation of a new joint venture that now owns the “Fathom Events” division (consisting of Fathom Events and Fathom Consumer Events) formerly operated by NCM. The Fathom Events business focuses on the marketing and distribution of live and pre-recorded entertainment programming to various theatre operators to provide additional programs to augment their feature film schedule. The Fathom Consumer Events business includes live and pre-recorded concerts featuring contemporary music, opera and symphony, DVD product releases and marketing events, theatrical premieres, Broadway plays, live sporting events and other special events. The joint venture, AC JV, LLC (“AC”), was formed by the Founding Members and NCM. NCM, under a contribution agreement, contributed the assets associated with its Fathom Events division to AC in exchange for 97% ownership of the Class A Units of AC. Under a separate contribution agreement, the Founding Members each contributed cash of approximately $269 to AC in exchange for 1% of the Class A Units of AC. Subsequently, NCM and the Founding Members entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement, under which NCM sold each of the Founding Members 31% of its Class A Units in AC, the aggregate value of which was determined to be $25,000, in exchange for a six-year Promissory Note. Each of the Founding Members’ Promissory Notes are for $8,333 and bear interest at 5% per annum and requires annual principal and interest payments, with the first of such payments due on December 26, 2014. As a result of the sale of Class A Units to the Founding Members, NCM recorded a gain (the “Fathom Gain”) during its 2013 fiscal year. Since the Fathom Gain was due to a transaction in which the Company was a counter party, the Company has deferred its portion of the equity earnings in NCM related to the Fathom Gain for the year ended December 31, 2013 of $2,175, by recording this amount as a reduction in its investment basis in AC.

The Company is a party to a joint venture with certain exhibitors and distributors called Digital Cinema Distribution Coalition (“DCDC”). DCDC is in the process of establishing a satellite distribution network that distributes all digital content to theatres via satellite. The Company has an approximate 14.6% ownership in DCDC.
