  • Global Box Office of $247.7 Million (+128.1% YoY) Driven by "Top Gun: Maverick", "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" and "Jurassic World Dominion" as Dramatic Surge in Moviegoing Expands across Demographics and Regions

NEW YORK, July 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- IMAX Corporation (NYSE: IMAX) today reported solid financial results for the Second Quarter of 2022 demonstrating its leadership position in the global resurgence of moviegoing. Total Gross Box Office increased to $247.7 million from $108.6 million in the second quarter of 2021. Revenue increased to $74.0 million from $51.0 million and Gross Margin increased to $44.0 million from $25.6 million in the year-ago period.

For the Second Quarter of 2022, the net loss attributable to common shareholders was ($2.9) million, or ($0.05) per share, compared to ($9.2) million, or ($0.16) per share, last year and Adjusted Net Income attributable to common shareholders(1) was $3.9 million, or $0.07 per share, compared to an Adjusted Net Loss attributable to common shareholders(1) of ($7.0) million, or ($0.12) per share, last year. The Company's Second Quarter 2022 Adjusted Net Income attributable to common shareholders(1) includes a $3.2 million, or $0.06 per share impairment of a film investment, due in part to Covid related lockdowns and depressed box office levels in China. The Company's Second Quarter 2022 Adjusted Net Income attributable to common shareholders(1) also includes a $5.1 million, or $0.09 per share, valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets.

Adjusted EBITDA per Credit Facility(1) of $25.4 million was up from $8.7 million in the second quarter of 2021. On a trailing 12-month basis, Adjusted EBITDA per Credit Facility(1) was $97.3 million as of June 30th

"IMAX is playing a leading role in the global resurgence in moviegoing, as demonstrated by our strong financial results, global box office growth, and market share gains we delivered in the second quarter. In fact, our second quarter results in North America were on par with our record-breaking 2019, as consumers continue to seek out IMAX as a destination for fandom," said Richard L. Gelfond, CEO of IMAX Corporation.

(1)     Non-GAAP Financial Measure. See the discussion at the end of this earnings release for a description of the Non-GAAP Financial Measures used herein, as well as reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP amounts.

"With three consecutive $25 million-plus global openings for the first time in its history, IMAX continued to affirm its position as a critical launch platform for major entertainment franchises. As the year progresses with key titles such as Brad Pitt's 'Bullet Train', Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's 'Black Adam', 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' and 'Avatar: The Way of Water' and a remarkable offering of franchise tentpoles through 2023, we are focused on driving future growth for the Company across our global network, content portfolio, and technology platform."

"We are encouraged by recent activity to strengthen key partnerships with global exhibitors, including agreements for new theatres and installations across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North America. We also continue to enhance and diversify our content portfolio, with Hollywood blockbusters, more of which feature IMAX DNA; local language blockbusters across a growing international footprint; IMAX documentaries; and exclusive live events and experiences from a growing roster of new partners."

(1)     Please refer to the Company's Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2022 for additional segment information.

IMAX Technology Network

  • IMAX Technology Network revenues increased 134% to $46.1 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $19.7 million in the prior-year period. The strength of key titles such as "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness", "Top Gun: Maverick" and "Jurassic World Dominion" drove the increase in gross box office and revenue.
     
  • Gross margin for the IMAX Technology Network increased to $30.9 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared to $8.7 million in the prior year period as improved box office performance drove higher revenue.

IMAX Technology Sales and Maintenance

  • IMAX Technology Sales and Maintenance revenues decreased 15% to $24.3 million in the second quarter of 2022, compared with $28.7 million in the prior year period. The decrease in revenue was driven by seven fewer installations, including upgrades, compared to the second quarter 2021, partially offset by increased maintenance revenues.
     
  • Total gross margin for IMAX Technology Sales and Maintenance decreased 20% to $12.8 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared to $16.1 million in the prior year period. The decrease in gross margin was the result of fewer system installations completed, partially offset by increased maintenance margin.

Cash Balances and Outstanding Debt

Total cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2022 were $110.1 million. Total debt, excluding deferred financing fees, was $230.0 million as of June 30, 2022.

Share Count and Capital Return

The weighted average basic and diluted shares outstanding at the end of the second quarter of 2022 was 57.3 million and 57.9 million, respectively, compared to 59.4 million in the second quarter of 2021. During the second quarter of 2022, the Company repurchased 2,702,548 shares at an average price of $15.92 for a total of $43.0 million and IMAX China did not repurchase any shares. As of June 30, 2022, a total of $26.2 million remains available under the Company's outstanding share repurchase authorization.

(1)     The revenue from this segment principally includes after-market sales of IMAX Theater system parts and 3D glasses. 

(2)     All Other includes the results from IMAX Enhanced and other ancillary activities. In the first quarter of 2022, the Company's internal reporting was updated to reclassify the results of IMAX Enhanced out of the New Business Initiatives segment into All Other for segment reporting purposes. Prior period comparatives have been revised to conform with the current period presentation.

 

IMAX CORPORATION
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(in thousands of U.S. dollars)

In this release, the Company presents adjusted net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders and adjusted net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders per basic and diluted share, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA per Credit Facility, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and free cash flow as supplemental measures of the Company's performance, which are not recognized under U.S. GAAP. Adjusted net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders and adjusted net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders per basic and diluted share exclude, where applicable: (i) share-based compensation; (ii) COVID-19 government relief benefits (iii) legal judgment and arbitration awards; (iv) realized and unrealized investment gains or losses, as well as the related tax impact of these adjustments, and (v) income taxes resulting from management's decision to no longer indefinitely reinvest the historical earnings of certain foreign subsidiaries.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are important supplemental measures that allow management and users of the Company's financial statements to view operating trends and analyze controllable operating performance on a comparable basis between periods without the after-tax impact of share-based compensation and certain unusual items included in net loss attributable to common shareholders. Although share-based compensation is an important aspect of the Company's employee and executive compensation packages, it is a non-cash expense and is excluded from certain internal business performance measures.

A reconciliation of net loss attributable to common shareholders and the associated per share amounts to adjusted net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders and adjusted net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders per diluted share is presented in the table below. Net loss attributable to common shareholders and the associated per share amounts are the most directly comparable GAAP measures because they reflect the earnings relevant to the Company's shareholders, rather than the earnings attributable to non-controlling interests.

In addition to the non-GAAP financial measures discussed above, management also uses "EBITDA," as such term is defined in the Company's Credit Agreement, and which is referred to herein as "Adjusted EBITDA per Credit Facility." As allowed by the Credit Agreement, Adjusted EBITDA per Credit Facility includes adjustments in addition to the exclusion of interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA per Credit Facility measure is presented to allow a more comprehensive analysis of the Company's operating performance and to provide additional information with respect to the Company's compliance against its Credit Agreement requirements when applicable. In addition, the Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA per Credit Facility presents relevant and useful information widely used by analysts, investors and other interested parties in the Company's industry to evaluate, assess and benchmark the Company's results.

EBITDA is defined as net income or loss excluding (i) income tax expense or benefit; (ii) interest expense, net of interest income; (iii) depreciation and amortization, including film asset amortization; and (iv) amortization of deferred financing costs. Adjusted EBITDA per Credit Facility is defined as EBITDA excluding: (i) share-based and other non-cash compensation; (ii) realized and unrealized investment gains or losses; (iii) write-downs, net of recoveries, including asset impairments and credit loss expense; and (iv) legal judgment and arbitration awards.

A reconciliation of net loss attributable to common shareholders, which is the most directly comparable GAAP measure, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per Credit Facility is presented in the table below. Net loss attributable to common shareholders is the most directly comparable GAAP measure because it reflects the earnings relevant to the Company's shareholders, rather than the earnings attributable to non-controlling interests.

Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by or used in operating activities minus cash used in investing activities (from the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows). Management views free cash flow, a non-GAAP measure, as a measure of the Company's after-tax cash flow available to reduce debt, add to cash balances, and fund other financing activities. Free cash flow does not represent residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. A reconciliation of cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow is presented below.

These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies. Additionally, the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, the comparable GAAP amounts.
