“Our momentum from the first half of 2018 continued into the third quarter. Compelling blockbuster content from Hollywood and China, coupled with our ongoing focus on controlling costs helped drive our third consecutive quarter of operating margin expansion,” said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. “Looking ahead, we expect many of the factors contributing to our strong performance this year to benefit the Company into 2019 and beyond including the rapidly evolving media landscape. The convergence of streaming and traditional media platforms creates interesting opportunities for IMAX.

We are increasingly seeing content creators seeking to attract top filmmakers, eventize the launch of new content and broaden the consumer reach of that content. Our 1,400-plus theatre network across nearly 80 countries affords filmmakers the opportunity to launch their content in a highly-differentiated, premium format. We are in active discussions across these converging platforms and believe IMAX has a unique opportunity to influence the emerging trends in our industry and be a direct beneficiary of the evolving landscape.”
