RealD Inc. Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2014 Financial Results

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- RealD Inc. (NYS: RLD) , a leading global licensor of 3D technologies, today announced financial results for its first quarter of fiscal 2014 ended June 30, 2013.

"We had a challenging first quarter, as moviegoers were more selective than expected regarding the films they chose to experience in 3D. Collaborating with our exhibitor and studio partners we have recently initiated a variety of new industry efforts to further promote the appeal of seeing films in RealD and the premium RealD experience," said Michael V. Lewis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RealD.

"Importantly, we continue to advance our international expansion initiatives, highlighted by today's announcement of our largest new contract win in several years," Lewis added, "as Cinemex, the sixth-largest exhibitor in the world, has selected RealD as its exclusive circuit-wide 3D technology provider and will equip RealD 3D technology in up to 700 auditoriums throughout the Cinemex circuit in Mexico. Approximately 540 alternative 3D systems will be replaced with RealD 3D within the next two years, ensuring that Cinemex audiences will experience the brightest and most immersive 3D available."

First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue was $59.2 million, comprised of license revenue of $37.3 million and product and other revenue of $21.9 million, for the first quarter of fiscal 2014. For the first quarter of fiscal 2013, total revenue was $68.2 million, comprised of license revenue of $41.2 million and product and other revenue of $27.0 million.
  • GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders was $1.5 million, or $0.03 per share, compared to GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders of $3.0 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $16.0 million, compared to $22.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • As previously announced, RealD has modified its definition of Adjusted EBITDA for financial reporting purposes to align with the Adjusted EBITDA definition under RealD's credit facility. As a result, the prior year calculation of Adjusted EBITDA was revised to conform with RealD's new definition of Adjusted EBITDA.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is defined within the section of this press release entitled "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures," which includes a reconciliation to its most comparable GAAP measure, net income (loss).

Cash Flows and Balance Sheet Highlights

  • For the quarter ended June 30, 2013, cash flows from operating activities were a negative $8.7 million and total capital expenditures were $10.1 million, resulting in negative free cash flow of $18.8 million. Cash flows were impacted by unfavorable movements in working capital items during the quarter (when compared to RealD's balance sheet as of March 31, 2013 for the prior quarter), due primarily to timing considerations, including a $10.0 million increase in accounts receivable, a $3.8 million increase in inventory, and a $5.0 million decrease in accounts payable and accrued expenses.
  • Free cash flow is defined within the section of this press release entitled "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures," which includes a reconciliation to its most comparable GAAP measure, net cash provided by operating activities.
  • As of June 30, 2013, $14.6 million remained available under RealD's $75 million stock repurchase authorization. RealD did not repurchase shares during the quarter.
  • As of June 30, 2013, cash and cash equivalents were $18.4 million and total debt was $52.5 million.

Key Metrics

  • Estimated box office generated on RealD-enabled screens(1) for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $838 million ($431 million domestic, $407 million international). In the first quarter of fiscal 2013, estimated box office generated on RealD-enabled screens was $933 million ($444 million domestic, $489 million international).
  • Eight 3D films were released in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to 10 3D films in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. These figures reflect the number of 3D films released domestically during the periods.
  • International markets generated 55% of license revenue and 27% of product and other revenue in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.
  • As of June 30, 2013, RealD had deployed approximately 23,500 RealD-enabled screens, an increase of 14% from approximately 20,700 screens as of June 22, 2012, and an increase of 800 screens (300 domestic, 500 international), or 4%, from approximately 22,700 screens as of March 31, 2013.

Cautionary Note on Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes forward-looking information and statements, including but not limited to: statements concerning anticipated future financial and operating performance; our expectations regarding demand and acceptance for our technologies; RealD's ability to continue to derive substantial revenue from the licensing of RealD's 3D technologies for use in the motion picture industry; 3D motion picture releases and conversions scheduled for fiscal 2014 ending March 31, 2014 and beyond, their commercial success and consumer preferences, that, in recent periods, have trended in favor of 2D over 3D in some motion pictures in domestic and international markets; our ability to increase our revenues and the number of RealD-enabled screens in domestic and international markets and our market share; our ability to supply our solutions to our customers on a timely basis; RealD's relationships with its exhibitor and studio partners and the business model for 3D eyewear in North America; the progress, timing and amount of expenses associated with RealD's research and development activities, which may increase in future periods; market and industry trends, including growth in 3D content; our plans, strategies and expected opportunities; the deployment of and demand for our products and products incorporating our technologies; RealD's projected operating results; and competitive pressures in domestic and international cinema markets impacting license and product revenues.

These statements are based on our management's current expectations and beliefs, as well as a number of assumptions concerning future events. Such forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other important factors, many of which are outside our management's control that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements. RealD's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the twelve months ended March 31, 2013 and other documents filed with the SEC include a more detailed discussion of the risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements.

RealD undertakes no obligation to update publicly the information contained in this press release, or any forward-looking statements, to reflect new information, events or circumstances after the date they were made, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement RealD's financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, RealD provides Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow as supplemental measures of its performance. RealD defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), plus net interest expense, income taxes, other income, and depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of share based compensation expense and certain other items not considered by RealD management to be indicative of RealD's core operating performance. RealD defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less total capital expenditures in a given period (e.g. purchases of cinema systems and property and equipment on a combined basis).

RealD presents Adjusted EBITDA in reporting its financial results to provide investors with additional tools to evaluate RealD's operating results in a manner that focuses on what RealD's management believes to be its ongoing business operations. RealD presents free cash flow to provide investors a metric for our capacity to generate cash from our operating and investing activities to sustain our operating activities. RealD's management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider any such Non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are used by management for planning purposes, including: the preparation of internal budgets, forecasts and strategic plans; in analyzing the effectiveness of business strategies; to evaluate potential acquisitions; in making compensation decisions; and in communications with its Board of Directors concerning financial performance. Because not all companies use identical calculations, RealD's presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management's discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as tax and debt service payments. Adjusted EBITDA also differs from the amounts calculated under the similarly titled definition in our credit agreement, which is further adjusted to reflect certain other cash and non-cash charges and is used to determine compliance with financial covenants and RealD's ability to engage in certain activities, such as incurring additional debt and making certain restricted payments.
