Cinedigm Announces Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results

Year over Year Revenue Growth Driven by Strong Performance in Company's Digital Cinema Installations and Content Entertainment Group

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. (NAS: CIDM) , the global leader in the digital cinema industry, today announced financial results for the second quarter fiscal 2013 ended September 30, 2012.


Quarterly Highlights Include:

  • Consolidated revenues up 7.5% to $22.6 million
  • 875 digital cinema installations, marking second highest install quarter in Company history
  • 10 independent films acquired year-to-date

Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Results

Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 were $22.6 million, a 7.5% increase from $21.0 million in the second quarter a year ago. The increase in revenues was primarily the result of strong performance in Cinedigm's Content and Entertainment Group (CEG), including results from the New Video acquisition, which closed in April 2012. The Company also experienced the second highest installation quarter in its history in the digital cinema servicing unit; however, gains were partially offset by a temporary decline in digital cinema deployment revenues due to the impact on virtual print fees of unexpected shifts in the breadth and timing of various major studio movie releases in July and August.

In the second quarter of fiscal 2013, Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations totaled $14.1 million, a decrease from $16.9 million in the year-ago period. Excluding Cinedigm's deployment business, Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $1.2 million, an increase of 48% from fiscal Q1 and a decrease from $3.2 million in the same period a year ago. Cinedigm installed 875 digital systems in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, as compared to an all-time record of 1,455 systems installed in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. This lower level of installations accounted for approximately $2.3 million of the EBITDA difference year-on-year, partially offset by other growth. In addition, consistent with its content growth plans, the Company incurred $0.2 million of external content distribution costs as it ramped up its film releasing business in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, building toward its goal of 20-25 releases per year. These costs were incurred in advance of earning ancillary home entertainment revenues on the Company's film releases. In addition to its content distribution business, Cinedigm continues to benefit from growth in its installed systems, software license and maintenance fees, and the inherent operating leverage embedded in its business model.

"During the quarter we made significant strategic and operational strides," said Chris McGurk, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "As of today, we have signed 276 exhibitor partners representing over 12,200 screens -- in excess of 70% of all North American exhibitors and approximately 40% of all North American digital cinema screens -- and we are continuing our focus on overseas expansion of our core businesses. Importantly, this huge deployment footprint helps build the worldwide foundation for Cinedigm's digital cinema servicing, software and digital content distribution units, further leveraging our market leadership in each business. In the last quarter, we successfully completed the integration of New Video into Cinedigm, signed several new studio and exhibitor software licenses and have now acquired ten independent films, including several high profile titles such as Arthur Newman, starring Academy Award® winner Colin Firth and Academy Award® Nominee Emily Blunt; and Violet and Daisy, written and directed by Academy Award® winner Geoffrey Fletcher and starring James Gandolfini. We expect these titles and our entire release slate to be strong contributors to our future growth."

"As we have discussed in the past, fiscal year 2013 is a year focused on both investment and growth," added Adam Mizel, Chief Operating Officer and CFO. "Our financial progress this quarter was masked by the tremendous installation quarter we experienced last year and the impact of our continued content acquisition investments. With 875 installations this quarter, we had our second largest installation quarter ever and we expect another strong quarter of installations in Q3 as we reach the end of our deployment period. We expect Q3 and Q4 to be our strongest financial quarters of the year given the impact of the holiday on our home entertainment content sales, a number of recent content and digital aggregation acquisitions, and our strong software pipeline. We remain extremely focused on profitably growing all our core businesses and making additional strategic investments to drive shareholder returns in fiscal year 2014 and beyond."

Six-Month Fiscal 2013 Results

For the first six months of fiscal 2013, revenues from continuing operations increased 11.4% to $43.5 million as compared to $39.1 million for the same period one year earlier. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations year-to-date was $27.6 million, compared to $30.6 million in the first six months of the prior year. Due in part to M&A expense charges and other restructuring charges, consolidated net loss increased to $7.8 million or $0.17 per share for the first six months of the fiscal year compared to a consolidated net loss of $6.6 million or $0.14 per share in the comparable prior year period. Excluding the M&A and restructuring charges, consolidated net loss decreased to $6.2 million or $0.13 per share for the first six months of the fiscal year.

Fiscal 2013 Outlook

Cinedigm is reaffirming its fiscal 2013 guidance and expects consolidated GAAP revenues including its deployment units of $91-$97 million, and consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $57-$59 million in fiscal 2013.

The Company is also reaffirming that it expects fiscal 2013 Adjusted EBITDA from non-deployment operations of $11.2-$12.7 million, prior to the $4.5-$5.0 million of GAAP expense impact from 8-10 movie acquisitions and additional library acquisitions. Net of the GAAP expense impact, Cinedigm expects to produce reported Adjusted EBITDA from non-deployment operations for fiscal 2013 of $6.7-$7.7 million.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company for the periods presented to be earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, other income, net, stock-based expenses and compensation, merger and acquisition costs, and certain other items. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation in the tables attached to this release of Adjusted EBITDA to U.S. GAAP net income (loss). The Company calculated and communicated Adjusted EBITDA in the tables because the Company's management believes it is of importance to investors and lenders by providing additional information with respect to the performance of its fundamental business activities. The Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may or may not be consistent with the calculation of this measure by other companies in the same industry. Investors should not view Adjusted EBITDA as an alternative to the U.S. GAAP operating measure of net income (loss). In addition, Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account changes in certain assets and liabilities as well as interest and income taxes that can affect cash flows. Management does not intend the presentation of these non-GAAP measures to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP measures should be read only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
