NEW YORK – Feb. 27, 2018 – IMAX Corporation (NYSE:IMAX)

today reported fourth-quarter 2017 revenue of $125.6 million and net income attributable to common shareholders of $4.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, which includes a one-time tax charge of $9.3 million ($0.14 per diluted share) associated with the recent U.S. tax reform and a $2.5 million ($0.04 per diluted share) charge associated with the Company’s cost reduction exercise announced in June. Full-year 2017 revenue was $380.8 million and net income attributable to common shareholders was $2.3 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, which includes the one-time tax charge of $9.3 million ($0.14 per diluted share) and total restructuring charge of $16.2 million ($0.25 per diluted share).

Adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders for the fourth quarter was $21.8 million, or $0.34 per diluted share. Full-year 2017 adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders was $40.5 million, or $0.62 per diluted share. For reconciliations of reported results to non-GAAP financial results, and for the definition and reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA per Credit Facility, please see the end of this press release.

“We saw tangible improvements to box office performance and operating leverage in the second half last year, largely the result of our implementing several initiatives aimed at refining our programming strategy and containing costs,” said Richard L. Gelfond, IMAX CEO. “IMAX domestic box office increased 17% in the second half, compared to an exhibitor industry decline of 6%. In international markets, we grew box office 14% over the same period. We believe this underscores the IMAX consumer value proposition for compelling content and highlights the importance of analyzing our results separately from the overall industry’s. Moreover, our growing international presence in markets such as Japan—a market that housed our single strongest-performing theater last year—continued to contribute meaningfully to our overall results.”
