"Total revenues for the third quarter increased 1.7% compared to a year ago and our merchandising and media businesses delivered strong results," said Ellis Jacob, President and CEO, Cineplex Entertainment. "New third quarter records were established for CPP of $4.68, up 5.6%, BPP of $8.84, up 0.8% and concession revenues of $85.9 million, an increase of 4.6% versus the same period last year. On a year-to-date basis, total revenues were up 4.8% and Adjusted EBITDA was up 7.4%."

"In other areas of our business, we completed the conversion of our circuit to digital projection and approximately 36% of our screens are 3D enabled. We completed the acquisition of four theatres (86 screens) from AMC and are in the process of implementing a number of our programs to improve the business results. Our SCENE loyalty program reached a new milestone surpassing 4 million members and continues to grow. The Cineplex mobile app has now been downloaded more than 4.1 million times and recorded approximately 85 million app sessions. We are pleased with the progress in our key initiatives and are encouraged by the industry box office results for October and the quality of the film product for the balance of the quarter."

EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow are not measures recognized by generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and do not have standardized meanings in accordance with such principles. Therefore, EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. EBITDA is calculated by adding back to net income, income tax expense, amortization and interest expense net of interest income. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adjusting EBITDA for gains and losses on disposal of assets, gains on acquisition of businesses and the share of income or loss of the Canadian Digital Cinema Partnership ("CDCP"). Adjusted free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure generally used by Canadian corporations, as an indicator of financial performance and it should not be seen as a measure of liquidity or a substitute for comparable metrics prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management uses adjusted EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow to evaluate performance primarily because of the significant effect certain unusual or non-recurring charges and other items have on EBITDA from period to period. For a detailed reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA and from cash provided by operating activities to adjusted free cash flow, please refer to Cineplex's management's discussion and analysis filed on www.sedar.com.

KEY DEVELOPMENTS IN THE THIRD QUARTER OF 2012

The following describes certain key business initiatives undertaken during the third quarter of 2012 in each of Cineplex's core business areas:

THEATRE EXHIBITION


--  Completed the acquisition of AMC Ventures Inc., which owns four theatres
    located in Toronto, Mississauga and Oakville, Ontario and Montreal,
    Quebec.  
--  BPP increased 0.8% from $8.77 in the third quarter of 2011 to $8.84 in
    the current year period, which is a third quarter BPP record for
    Cineplex. 
--  As of September 30, 2012, Cineplex has completed the planned conversion
    of its theatre circuit to digital projection. 

MERCHANDISING


--  Reported record quarterly concession revenues of $85.9 million, a 4.6%

    throughout the circuit, providing a flexible platform to communicate

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Box office revenues decreased $0.4 million, or 0.2%, to $162.1 million during the third quarter of 2012, compared to $162.5 million recorded in the same period in 2011. The decrease was due to a 1.0% decrease in attendance. The top five films during the quarter outperformed the top five films from the prior year period ($74.3 million compared to $67.6 million), but the remainder of the film slate underperformed compared to the prior year period. The decrease was also mitigated by the acquisition of the four theatres from AMC during the quarter which are not included in the prior period results.

The decrease in box office revenues due to the attendance decline was partially offset by a 0.8% increase in BPP, from $8.77 in the third quarter of 2011 to $8.84 in the current year period. This BPP increase was due to the films during the period catering to more mature audiences than the product in the prior year period, as well as the contribution from the four theatres acquired from AMC which are located in major metropolitan areas and have higher ticket prices than those in smaller markets. Premium-priced product (3D, UltraAVX, IMAX and VIP) accounted for 31.4% of box office revenues in the current quarter, down from 35.7% in the prior year period as only two of the top five releases during the period were screened in 3D, compared to all four of the top releases in the prior year period shown in 3D.

Cineplex's investment in premium-priced formats over the last four years has positioned it to take advantage of the price premiums offered on these formats, which has contributed to Cineplex's BPP growth in the current period compared to the prior year period. This investment in premium-priced offerings contributed to Cineplex outperforming the Canadian industry during the third quarter.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Box office revenues for the first nine months of 2012 were $467.8 million or 5.4% higher than the prior year period. The strong performance of the three major blockbusters released in 2012 (Marvel's The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises and The Hunger Games) were the main contributors to the $24.2 million increase in box office revenue during the period. Attendance during the 2012 period also benefited from the first week of January 2012 being a school holiday week in most markets, whereas the same week in 2011 was not. The acquisition of the four theatres from AMC during the third quarter of 2012 also contributed to the box office revenue increase in the current year period.

Cineplex's BPP for the first nine months of 2012 increased $0.19, or 2.2%, from $8.70 in 2011 to $8.89 in the same period in 2012. This increase was primarily due to the increase in revenues from premium-priced product. Premium-priced offerings accounted for 31.6% of Cineplex's box office revenues in the 2012 period, compared to 29.1% in the prior year period. The top five films in the 2012 period were screened in IMAX and three in 3D (2011 - three in IMAX and three in 3D).

Third Quarter

Concession revenues increased 4.6% as compared to the prior year quarter despite the 1.0% decrease in attendance. CPP increased from $4.43 in the third quarter of 2011 to $4.68 in the same period in 2012, a 5.6% increase and a quarterly record for Cineplex, $0.02 higher than the previous record set in the second quarter of 2012. Cineplex believes a focus on revised concession offerings, its retail branded outlet program and improved product promotion through the expansion of a digital menu board program have all contributed to the higher CPP in the current period compared to the prior year period.

While the 10% SCENE discount and SCENE points issued on concession combo purchases reduce individual transaction values which impacts CPP, Cineplex believes that this program drives incremental visits and concession purchases, resulting in higher overall concession revenues.

Year to Date

Concession revenues increased 8.7% as compared to the prior year period, due to the 3.2% increase in attendance and the 5.5% increase in CPP. CPP increased from $4.38 in the first nine months of 2011 to $4.62 in the same period in 2012. This represents the highest CPP Cineplex has recorded through the first nine months of a given year.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Third Quarter

Other revenues increased 3.9% to $33.3 million in the third quarter of 2012. This increase was due to higher media revenues, which during the third quarter of 2012 were $23.0 million, up $0.8 million, or 3.6%, when compared to the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to higher revenues in Cineplex's Digital Media business ($0.7 million). Showtime and pre-show advertising returned to prior year levels in the third quarter of 2012.

The games revenue decrease is due to the formation of CSI on January 31, 2012, with the acquisition by New Way Sales ("NWS") of the gaming business of Starburst Coin Machines Inc. With the creation of the CSI joint venture, revenues from CSI are included in the 'Share of loss (income) of joint ventures' line in the Statements of Operations. The Games revenues for the third quarter of 2011 include the results of NWS ($1.2 million). The addition of two new XSCAPE entertainment centres since the third quarter of 2011 partially offset the decrease in games revenue due to the creation of CSI and related movement of CSI results to the joint ventures line in the Statements of Operations. Other revenues also increased due primarily to additional revenue arising from enhanced guest service initiatives ($1.1 million).

Year to Date

Other revenues decreased 7.8% from $89.4 million in the first nine months of 2011 to $82.5 million during the same period in 2012. Media revenues for the first nine months of 2012 decreased $8.7 million, or 13.9%, from the prior year period. Declines in Cineplex's media business were due in part to the challenging media environment prevalent during the first half of 2012, partially mitigated by the stronger CDM revenues in the third quarter. Cineplex enjoys strong relationships with a number of national advertisers and during the first half of the year the reduction in campaigns from three major categories of these advertisers contributed to the decrease in media revenues.

The decrease in games revenue was due to the impact of NWS and the formation of CSI. The results of NWS are included in the comparative period for May to September 2011 (following its acquisition in May 2011) and for January 2012 (prior to the formation of CSI described above - $0.4 million for the 2012 period and $1.6 million for the 2011 period). This decrease was partially offset by the impact of the new XSCAPE entertainment centres added in the fourth quarter of 2011 as well as the higher attendance in the current year period bringing more games traffic through the theatres. The increase in the other category is primarily due to higher auditorium rental and screening revenues as well as additional revenue arising from enhanced guest service initiatives.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Third Quarter

Film cost varies primarily with box office revenue, and can vary from quarter to quarter based on the relative strength of the titles exhibited during the period. The decrease in the third quarter of 2012 compared to the prior year period was due to the decrease in box office revenue and the 0.9% decrease in film cost percentage. The decrease in film cost percentage is primarily due to the settlement rate on certain strong performing titles during the third quarter of 2012 being lower than the average film settlement rate in the 2011 period.

Year to Date

The year to date increase in film cost was due to the 5.4% increase in box office revenues and the 0.1% increase in film cost percentage during the period. The increase in the film cost percentage as compared to the prior year period is primarily due to the settlement rate on certain strong performing titles during the 2012 period being higher than the average settlement rate in the 2011 period.

Cost of concessions

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Third Quarter

Cost of concessions varies primarily with theatre attendance as well as the quantity and mix of concession offerings sold. The increase in concession cost as compared to the prior year period was due to the 4.6% increase in concession revenues, partially offset by the 0.3% increase in the concession cost percentage during the period. The concession margin per patron increased from $3.52 in the third quarter of 2011 to $3.71 in the same period in 2012, reflecting the impact of the higher CPP during the period.

Year to Date

The increase in concession cost during the period was due to the 8.7% increase in concession revenues partially offset by the 0.2% decrease in the concession cost percentage. Despite the 10% discount offered to SCENE members, which contributes to a higher concession cost percentage, Cineplex believes the SCENE program drives incremental attendance and purchase incidence which increases concession revenues and CPP.

Depreciation and amortization

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The quarterly and annual decrease in amortization of property, equipment and leaseholds of $0.6 million and $1.8 million respectively is due in part to the transfer of digital projection equipment to CDCP in June 2011 resulting in lower asset values to depreciate, as well as certain assets becoming fully amortized in the third quarter of 2012. The declining 35 millimeter projector base due to the circuit's conversion to digital also contributed to the decrease in amortization of property, equipment and leaseholds. The decrease in amortization of intangible assets and other relates to certain intangible assets that became fully amortized during the first quarter of 2012.

Third Quarter

Theatre occupancy expenses increased $4.8 million during the third quarter of 2012 compared to the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to the four theatres acquired from AMC on July 12 ($4.3 million). The increase in the Other category primarily relates to higher real estate taxes in the current quarter compared to the prior year period.

Year to Date

The increase in theatre occupancy expenses of $4.9 million for the first nine months of 2012 compared to the prior year period was primarily due to the four theatres acquired from AMC on July 12 ($4.3 million). The increase in the Other category primarily relates to higher real estate taxes in the current year period compared to the prior year.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Third Quarter

Other operating expenses during the third quarter of 2012 were in line with the prior year period. The impact of new and acquired net of disposed theatres was a $1.2 million increase to the category primarily due to the four theatres acquired from AMC. Other increases included higher marketing costs ($0.3 million) and higher same-store payroll costs ($0.2 million). These increases were partially offset by the impact of NWS ($0.9 million) as expenses for NWS are included in other operating expenses in 2011 but not in 2012 due to the creation of CSI, and a $1.0 million termination payment paid to a landlord in the prior year period to refurbish theatre space for a disposed theatre.

The major movement in the Other category include the following:


--  Higher credit card service fees due in part to an increase in pre-sales
    for The Dark Knight Rises ($0.2 million).  
--  Higher utility costs due to the higher temperatures across Canada during
    the current year period ($0.5 million).  
--  Higher digital projector rental costs due to the roll-out of digital
    projectors by CDCP that commenced in June 2011 ($0.2 million). 
--  Lower 3D royalty costs due to less 3D content in the current year period
    ($0.8 million). 

Total theatre payroll costs accounted for 45.3% of total operating expenses during the third quarter of 2012 as compared to 43.1% for the same period one year earlier due in part to minimum wage increases.

Year to Date

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, other operating expenses increased $2.7 million, due in part to the higher business volumes in the 2012 period compared to the prior year. The impact of new and acquired net of disposed theatres was a $1.7 million increase to the category primarily due to the four theatres acquired from AMC. Cost increases included higher same-store payroll expenses related to the increased business volumes ($1.5 million), higher marketing costs ($1.1 million) and the $2.7 million increase in the Other category. These cost increases were partially offset by lower media expenses due to the lower media sales during the period ($2.3 million) and the impact of NWS which was contributed into CSI in January 2012 ($1.0 million) as well as a $1.0 million termination payment paid to a landlord in the prior year period to refurbish theatre space for a disposed theatre.

The major movement in the Other category include the following:


--  Higher credit card service fees due in part to an increase in pre-sales
    for highly anticipated releases ($1.0 million).  
--  Higher utility costs due to the higher temperatures across Canada during
    the current year period ($1.2 million).  
--  Higher digital projector rental costs due to the roll-out of digital
    projectors by CDCP that commenced in June 2011 ($0.7 million). 
--  Higher theatre operating costs including cleaning relating to the higher
    business volumes during the period. 
--  Lower 3D royalty costs due to less 3D content in the current year period
    ($1.3 million). 

Total theatre payroll accounted for 45.5% of total other operating expenses in the first nine months of 2012, compared to 44.6% in the prior year period due in part to minimum wage increases.

General and administrative expenses

The following table highlights the movement in general and administrative ("G&A") expenses during the quarter and the year to date, including share and unit based compensation costs, and G&A net of these costs (in thousands of Canadian dollars):


----------------------------------------------------------------------------

G&A expenses as reported $ 13,146 $ 12,068    8.9% $ 41,937 $ 43,459   -3.5%
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

(i) LTIP includes the expense for the LTIP program as well as the expense for the executive and Board deferred share unit plans.

Third Quarter

G&A expenses increased $1.1 million during the third quarter of 2012 compared to the prior year period, due to a $0.6 million increase in professional fees in part relating to the acquisition of the theatres from AMC and a $1.0 million increase in payroll related and general cost increases. These increases were partially offset by lower expenses under the option plan ($0.4 million) and lower LTIP expenses ($0.1 million).

Effective January 1, 2012, the Board of Directors of Cineplex invoked Cineplex's right to substitute a cashless exercise for any requested exercise of options for cash, in accordance with the terms of the option plan. As a result of the change in administrative policy, the options may only be equity-settled, and are considered equity, not liabilities. The expense amount for options is determined at the time of their issuance, recognized over the vesting period of the options. Existing options at the time of the change in administrative policy have their remaining expense determined at the time of the change in administrative policy, recognized over the remaining vesting periods.

Year to Date

G&A expenses for the first nine months of 2012 decreased $1.5 million compared to the prior year period, due to the $5.7 million decrease in the option plan expense. This decrease was partially offset by higher professional fees ($1.4 million) relating to the creation of CSI, an internal corporate reorganization effected on January 1, 2012 and the theatres acquired from AMC, higher payroll related and general cost increases ($2.6 million), and higher LTIP costs ($0.2 million).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Third Quarter

The movement from income of $1.5 million in the third quarter of 2011 to a loss of $1.0 million in the current period is primarily due to the activities of SCENE, CDCP and CSI:


--  SCENE's results in the third quarter of 2011 include income relating to
    an adjustment to SCENE's outstanding points balance due to certain
    members having their points expired during the third quarter of 2011 due
    to inactivity in the program. When compared to the current year period
    the result is a negative variance of $3.3 million year over year. 
--  CDCP generated income of $0.5 million in the third quarter of 2012,
    which when compared to the modest loss in the prior year period, results
    in a $0.5 million positive variance period over period.  
--  The results of CSI, formed January 31, 2012 and therefore not included
    in the prior year comparative, contributed a $0.3 million positive
    variance year over year. 

Year to Date

The movement from income of $1.1 million in the first nine months of 2011 to a loss of $0.8 million in the current period is primarily due to the activities of SCENE, CDCP and CSI:


--  SCENE's results in the 2011 period include income relating to a change
    in accounting estimate for breakage resulting in a program-to-date
    adjustment to its outstanding points liability as well as the adjustment
    to SCENE's outstanding points balance due to certain members having
    their points expired due to inactivity in the program. When compared to
    the current year period the result is a negative variance of $6.4
    million year over year. 
--  CDCP in the 2011 period includes $2.2 million of start-up costs, which
    when compared to the income of $1.4 million generated in the current
    year period, results in a positive variance of $3.6 million year over
    year.  
--  The results of CSI, formed January 31, 2012 and therefore not included
    in the prior year comparative, contributed a $0.8 million positive
    variance year over year. 

EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA

The following table represents EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 (expressed in thousands of Canadian dollars, except adjusted EBITDA margin):


----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adjusted EBITDA

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 decreased $2.9 million, or 5.0%, as compared to the prior year period. The decrease over the prior year period was primarily due to the lower exhibition revenues recorded in the period, as well as the impact of the four theatres acquired from AMC in the third quarter of 2012, which had a $0.8 million, or 1.5%, negative impact on adjusted EBITDA in the quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margin, calculated as adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenues, was 19.4%, down 1.4% from 20.8% in the prior year period. Excluding the impact of the theatres acquired from AMC, adjusted EBITDA margin was 20.3%.

Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 increased $9.9 million, or 7.4%, as compared to the prior year period. The increase is primarily due to the higher exhibition and concession revenues due to the higher theatre attendance. The impact of the four theatres acquired from AMC in the third quarter of 2012 had a $0.8 million, or 0.6%, negative impact on adjusted EBITDA in the year-to-date period. Adjusted EBITDA margin, calculated as adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenues, was 18.0%, compared to 17.6% in the prior year period.

Cineplex believes its operating and programming expertise, combined with its merchandising, media, marketing, interactive and SCENE loyalty programs will positively and significantly improve the operations of the four acquired theatres. Cineplex will invest in each of the locations and may add UltraAVX auditoriums, VIP auditoriums or XSCAPE entertainment centres to one or more of the locations.

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
