PART I
Item 1. Business
Our Company

The Company also managed theatres in the U.S., Canada, Brazil and Colombia during the year ended December 31, 2007.
     On April 2, 2004, an affiliate of Madison Dearborn Partners, LLC, (“MDP”), acquired approximately 83% of the capital stock of Cinemark, Inc., pursuant to which a newly formed subsidiary owned by an affiliate of MDP was merged with and into Cinemark, Inc., with Cinemark, Inc. continuing as the surviving corporation (the “MDP Merger”). Simultaneously, an affiliate of MDP purchased shares of Cinemark, Inc.’s common stock for $518.2 million in cash and became Cinemark, Inc.’s controlling stockholder. Lee Roy Mitchell, Chairman and then Chief Executive Officer, the Mitchell Special Trust and certain members of management collectively retained a minority ownership of Cinemark, Inc.’s capital stock. In December 2004, MDP sold a portion of its stock in Cinemark, Inc. to outside investors and in July 2005, Cinemark, Inc. issued additional shares to another outside investor.
     On August 2, 2006, Cinemark Holdings, Inc. was formed as the Delaware holding company of Cinemark, Inc. On August 7, 2006, the Cinemark, Inc. stockholders entered into a share exchange agreement pursuant to which they agreed to exchange their shares of Class A common stock for an equal number of shares of common stock of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. (“Cinemark Share Exchange”). The Cinemark Share Exchange was completed on October 5, 2006 and facilitated the acquisition of Century Theatres, Inc., a national theatre chain headquartered in San Rafael, California with 77 theatres and 1,017 screens in 12 states, for a purchase price of approximately $681 million and the assumption of approximately $360 million of Century debt (“Century Acquisition”). On October 5, 2006, Cinemark, Inc. became a wholly owned subsidiary of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. Prior to October 5, 2006, Cinemark Holdings, Inc. had no assets, liabilities or operations. The accompanying consolidated financial statements are reflective of the change in reporting entity that occurred as a result of the Cinemark Share Exchange. Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s consolidated financial statements reflect the accounting basis of its stockholders for all periods presented. On April 24, 2007, Cinemark Holdings, Inc. completed an initial public offering of its common stock.
     As of December 31, 2007, we managed our business under two operating segments – U.S. markets and international markets, in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 131 “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information.” See Note 22 to the consolidated financial statements.
     Our principal executive offices are at 3900 Dallas Parkway, Suite 500, Plano, Texas 75093. Our telephone number is (972) 665-1000. We maintain a corporate website at www.cinemark.com. Our annual reports on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K, and any amendments, are available on our website free of charge under the heading “Investor Relations – SEC Filings” as soon as practicable after such reports are filed or furnished electronically to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Description of Business
     We are a leader in the motion picture exhibition industry with 408 theatres and 4,665 screens in the U.S. and Latin America. Our circuit is the third largest in the U.S. with 287 theatres and 3,654 screens in 38 states. We are the most geographically diverse circuit in Latin America with 121 theatres and 1,011 screens in 12 countries. During the year ended December 31, 2007, over 212 million patrons attended our theatres. Our modern theatre circuit features stadium seating for approximately 81% of our first-run screens.
     We selectively build or acquire new theatres in markets where we can establish and maintain a leading market position. We believe our portfolio of modern theatres provides a preferred destination for moviegoers and contributes to our significant cash flows from operating activities. Our significant presence in the U.S. and Latin America has made us an important distribution channel for movie studios, particularly as they look to increase revenues generated in Latin

America. Our market leadership is attributable in large part to our senior executives, who average approximately 33 years of industry experience and have successfully navigated us through multiple business cycles.
     We grew our total revenue per patron at a compound annual growth rate, (“CAGR”), during the last three fiscal years of 11.5%. Revenues, operating income and net income for the year ended December 31, 2007, were $1,682.8 million, $113.0 million and $88.9 million, respectively. At December 31, 2007 we had cash and cash equivalents of $338.0 million and long-term debt of $1,523.7 million. Approximately $607.8 million of our long-term debt accrues interest at variable rates.
Motion Picture Industry Overview
     Domestic Markets
     The U.S. motion picture exhibition industry has a track record of long-term growth, with box office revenues growing at a CAGR of 5.1% over the last 15 years. Against this background of steady long-term growth, the exhibition industry has experienced periodic short-term increases and decreases in attendance, and consequently box office revenues. In 2007, the motion picture exhibition industry continued to experience growth with box office revenues increasing 5.4% over 2006, compared to an increase of 3.5% in 2006 over 2005. We believe box office revenues will continue to perform well in 2008 with a solid slate of films, including Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, The Dark Knight, Wall-E, Hancock, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor and the release of 3-D movies such as Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds and Journey to the Center of the Earth. In 2009, a broad slate of 3-D films is expected, including Monsters vs. Aliens, Ice Age 3, and Avatar.
     The following table represents the results of a survey by MPAA Worldwide Market Research (“MPAA”), published during March 2008, outlining the historical trends in U.S. box office revenues for the ten year period from 1997 to 2007:
                         
    U.S. Box        
    Office Revenues   Attendance   Average Ticket
Year   ($ in millions)   (in millions)   Price
1997
  $ 6,216       1,354     $ 4.59  
1998
  $ 6,760       1,438     $ 4.69  
1999
  $ 7,314       1,440     $ 5.08  
2000
  $ 7,468       1,383     $ 5.39  
2001
  $ 8,125       1,438     $ 5.66  
2002
  $ 9,272       1,599     $ 5.81  
2003
  $ 9,165       1,521     $ 6.03  
2004
  $ 9,215       1,484     $ 6.21  
2005
  $ 8,832       1,376     $ 6.41  
2006
  $ 9,138       1,395     $ 6.55  
2007
  $ 9,629       1,400     $ 6.88  
International Markets
     International growth also continues to be solid. According to MPAA, international box office revenues grew steadily at a CAGR of 11.9% from 2003 to 2007 as a result of the increasing acceptance of moviegoing as a popular form of entertainment throughout the world, ticket price increases and new theatre construction.
     Growth in Latin America is expected to be fueled by a combination of continued development of modern theatres, attractive demographics (i.e., a significant teenage population), quality product from Hollywood and the emergence of a local film industry. In many Latin American countries the local film industry had been dormant because of the lack of sufficient theatres to exhibit the film product. The development of new modern multiplex theatres has revitalized the local film industry and, in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina, successful local film product often provides incremental growth opportunities.

     We believe many international markets for theatrical exhibition have historically been underserved and that certain of these markets, especially those in Latin America, will continue to experience growth as additional modern stadium-styled theatres are introduced.
Drivers of Continued Industry Success
     We believe the following market trends will drive the continued growth and strength of our industry:
     Importance of Theatrical Success in Establishing Movie Brands and Subsequent Markets. Theatrical exhibition is the primary distribution channel for new motion picture releases. A successful theatrical release which “brands” a film is one of the major factors in determining its success in “downstream” markets, such as DVDs, network and syndicated television, video on-demand, pay-per-view television and downloading utilizing the Internet.
     Increased Importance of International Markets for Box Office Success. International markets continue to be an increasingly important component of the overall box office revenues generated by Hollywood films, accounting for $17.1 billion, or 64% of 2007 total worldwide box office revenues according to MPAA. With continued growth of the international motion picture exhibition industry, we believe the relative contribution of markets outside North America will become even more significant.
     Increased Investment in Production and Marketing of Films by Distributors. As a result of the additional revenues generated by domestic, international and “downstream” markets, studios have increased production and marketing expenditures at a CAGR of 8.2% and 10.1%, respectively, since 2004, according to MPAA. Production and marketing expenditures for 2007 increased by 18.1% and 12.7%, respectively over 2006.
     Stable Long-term Attendance Trends. We believe that long-term trends in motion picture attendance in the U.S. will continue to benefit the industry. Despite historical economic and industry cycles, domestic attendance has grown at a 1.6% CAGR over the last 15 years to 1.4 billion patrons in 2007. According to Nielsen Entertainment/NRG, 77% of moviegoers stated their overall theatre experience in 2007 was time and money well spent. Additionally, younger moviegoers in the U.S. continue to be the most frequent patrons.
     Reduced Seasonality of Revenues. Box office revenues have historically been highly seasonal, with a majority of blockbusters being released during the summer and year-end holiday season. In recent years, the seasonality of motion picture exhibition has become less pronounced as studios have begun to release films more evenly throughout the year. This benefits exhibitors by allowing more effective allocation of the fixed cost base throughout the year.
     Convenient and Affordable Form of Out-Of-Home Entertainment. Moviegoing continues to be one of the most convenient and affordable forms of out-of-home entertainment, with an estimated average ticket price in the U.S. of $6.88 in 2007. Average prices in 2007 for other forms of out-of-home entertainment in the U.S., including sporting events and theme parks, range from approximately $23.50 to $65.25 per ticket according to MPAA. Movie ticket prices have risen at approximately the rate of inflation, while ticket prices for other forms of out-of-home entertainment have increased at higher rates.
Competitive Strengths
     We believe the following strengths allow us to compete effectively:
     Solid Operating Performance and Discipline. We generated operating income and net income of $113.0 million and $88.9 million, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2007. Our solid operating performance is a result of our financial discipline, such as negotiating favorable theatre level economics and controlling theatre operating costs. We believe the continued integration of the Century Acquisition will result in additional revenues and cost efficiencies to further improve our margins.
     Leading Position in Our U.S. Markets. We have a leading share in the U.S. metropolitan and suburban markets we serve. For the year ended December 31, 2007, we ranked either first or second based on box office revenues in 22 out of our top 25 U.S. markets, including the San Francisco Bay Area, Dallas, Houston and Sacramento. On average, the population in domestic markets where over 80% of our theatres are located, including Dallas, Las Vegas and Phoenix, is expected to grow 52% faster than the average growth rate of the U.S. population over the next five years, as reported by BIAfn and U.S. census data.

Table of Contents

     Strategically Located in Heavily Populated Latin American Markets. Since 1993, we have invested throughout Latin America due to the growth potential of the region. We operate 121 theatres and 1,011 screens in 12 countries, generating revenues of $333.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2007. We have successfully established a significant presence in major cities in the region, with theatres in twelve of the fifteen largest metropolitan areas. With the most geographically diverse circuit in Latin America, we are an important distribution channel to the movie studios. The region’s improved economic climate and rising disposable income are also a source for growth. We are well-positioned with our modern, large-format theatres and new screens to take advantage of this favorable economic environment for further growth and diversification of our revenues.
     Modern Theatre Circuit. We have one of the most modern theatre circuits in the industry which we believe makes our theatres a preferred destination for moviegoers in our markets. We feature stadium seating in approximately 81% of our first run auditoriums and approximately 82% of our international screens also feature stadium seating. During 2007, we continued our organic expansion by opening 257 screens. We currently have commitments to build 225 additional screens over the next three years.
     Solid Balance Sheet with Significant Cash Flow from Operating Activities. We generate significant cash flow from operating activities as a result of several factors, including management’s ability to contain costs, predictable revenues and a geographically diverse, modern theatre circuit requiring limited maintenance capital expenditures. Additionally, a strategic advantage that enhances our cash flows, is our ownership of land and buildings for 43 of our theatres. We believe our expected level of cash flow generation will provide us with the strategic and financial flexibility to pursue growth opportunities, support our debt payments and make dividend payments to our stockholders. As of December 31, 2007, we had cash of $338.0 million.
     Experienced Management with Focused Operating Philosophy. Led by Chairman and founder Lee Roy Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer Alan Stock, President and Chief Operating Officer Timothy Warner and Chief Financial Officer Robert Copple, our management team has an average of approximately 33 years of theatre operating experience executing a focused strategy which has led to consistent operating results. Our operating philosophy has centered on providing a superior viewing experience and selecting less competitive markets or clustering in strategic metropolitan and suburban markets in order to generate a high return on invested capital. This focused strategy includes strategic site selection, building appropriately-sized theatres for each of our markets, and managing our properties to maximize profitability. As a result, we grew our admissions and concession revenues per patron at the highest CAGR during the last four fiscal years among the three largest motion picture exhibitors in the U.S.
Our Strategy
     We believe our operating philosophy and management team will enable us to continue to enhance our leading position in the motion picture exhibition industry. Key components of our strategy include:
     Establish and Maintain Leading Market Positions. We will continue to seek growth opportunities by building or acquiring modern theatres that meet our strategic, financial and demographic criteria. We will continue to focus on establishing and maintaining a leading position in the markets we serve.
     Continue to Focus on Operational Excellence. We will continue to focus on achieving operational excellence by controlling theatre operating costs. Our margins reflect our track record of operating efficiency.
     Selectively Build in Profitable, Strategic Latin American Markets. Our international expansion will continue to focus primarily on Latin America through construction of American-style, state-of-the-art theatres in major urban markets.
Dividend Policy
     During August 2007, we initiated a quarterly dividend policy. Consistent with the disclosures in our 424(b)(1) prospectus, the dividend for the second quarter of 2007 was based upon the quarterly dividend rate of $0.18 per common share, prorated based on the April 27, 2007 closing date of our initial public offering. Based on such proration, our board of directors declared a cash dividend of $0.13 per share of common stock, which was paid on September 18, 2007. The dividend for the third quarter was the first dividend paid by us reflecting a full quarter since our initial public offering and was paid in the amount of $0.18 per share of common stock on December 18, 2007. We paid dividends of approximately $33.1 million in the aggregate during 2007. The dividend for the fourth quarter of 2007 was paid in the amount of $0.18 per share of common stock on March 14, 2008. We, at the discretion of our board of directors and subject to applicable law, anticipate paying regular quarterly dividends on our common stock for the foreseeable future. The amount, if any, of

the dividends to be paid in the future will depend upon our then available cash, anticipated cash needs, overall financial condition, loan agreement restrictions, future prospects for earnings and cash flows, as well as other relevant factors.
Theatre Operations
     As of December 31, 2007, we operated 408 theatres and 4,665 screens in 38 states, one Canadian province and 12 Latin American countries. Our theatres in the U.S. are primarily located in mid-sized U.S. markets, including suburbs of major metropolitan areas. We believe these markets are generally less competitive and generate high, stable margins. Our theatres in Latin America are primarily located in major metropolitan markets, which we believe are generally underscreened. The following tables summarize the geographic locations of our theatre circuit as of December 31, 2007.

     We first entered Latin America with the opening of theatres in Chile in 1993 and Mexico in 1994. Since 1993, through our focused international strategy, we have developed into the most geographically diverse circuit in Latin America. We presently have theatres in twelve of the fifteen largest metropolitan areas in Latin America. We have balanced our risk through a diversified international portfolio with operations in twelve countries in Latin America. In addition, we have achieved significant scale in Mexico and Brazil, the two largest Latin American economies.
     We believe that certain markets within Latin America continue to be underserved and penetration of movie screens per capita in Latin American markets is substantially lower than in the U.S. and European markets. We will continue to build and expand our presence in underserved international markets, with emphasis on Latin America, and fund our expansion primarily with cash flow generated in those markets. We are able to mitigate exposure in the costs of our international operations to currency fluctuations by using local currencies to fund substantially all aspects of our operations, including film and facility lease expense. Our geographic diversity throughout Latin America has allowed us to maintain consistent revenue growth notwithstanding currency fluctuations that may affect any particular market.
Film Licensing
     In the U.S., we license films from film distributors that are owned by major film production companies or from independent film distributors that distribute films for smaller production companies. For new release films, film distributors typically establish geographic zones and offer each available film to one theatre in each zone. The size of a film zone is generally determined by the population density, demographics and box office revenues potential of a particular market or region. We currently operate theatres in 235 first run film zones in the U.S. New film releases are licensed at the discretion of the film distributors. As the sole exhibitor in approximately 85% of the first run film zones in which we operate, we have maximum access to film product, which allows us to select those pictures we believe will be the most successful in our markets from those offered to us by distributors. We usually license films on an allocation basis in film zones where we face competition.
     In the international markets in which we operate, distributors do not allocate film to a single theatre in a geographic film zone, but allow competitive theatres to play the same films simultaneously. In these markets, films are still licensed on a theatre-by-theatre and film-by-film basis. Our theatre personnel focus on providing excellent customer service, and we provide a modern facility with the most up-to-date sound systems, comfortable stadium style seating and other amenities typical of modern American-style multiplexes, which we believe gives us a competitive advantage in markets where competing theatres play the same films. Of the 1,011 screens we operate in international markets approximately 72% have no direct competition from other theatres.
     Our film rental licenses in the U.S. typically specify that rental fees are based on either mutually agreed upon firm terms or a sliding scale formula, which are established prior to the opening of the picture, or on a mutually agreed upon settlement at the conclusion of the picture run. Under a firm terms formula, we pay the distributor a specified percentage of box office receipts, which reflects either a mutually agreed upon aggregate rate for the life of the film or rates that decline over the term of the run. Firm term film rental fees that decline over the term of the run generally start at 60% to

Table of Contents

70% of box office receipts, gradually declining to as low as 30% over a period of four to seven weeks. Under the sliding scale formula, film rental is paid as a percentage of box office revenues using a pre-determined matrix based upon box office performance of the film. The settlement process allows for negotiation of film rental fees upon the conclusion of the film run based upon how the film performs. Internationally, our film rental licenses are based on mutually agreed upon firm terms established prior to the opening of the picture. The film rental percentages paid by our international locations are generally lower than in the U.S. markets and gradually decline over a period of several weeks.
     We operate seven art theatres with 27 screens under the CinéArts brand. We also regularly play art and independent films at eleven other theatres. CinéArts allows us to take advantage of the growth in the art and independent market driven by the more mature patron. There has been an increased interest in art, foreign and documentary films. High profile film festivals, such as the Sundance Film Festival, have contributed to growth and interest in this genre. Recent hits such as Juno, There Will Be Blood and No Country For Old Men have demonstrated the box office potential of art and independent films.
Concessions
     Concession sales are our second largest revenue source, representing approximately 30.7% of total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2007. Concession sales have a much higher margin than admissions sales. We have devoted considerable management effort to increase concession sales and improve operating margins. These efforts include implementation of the following strategies:
    Optimization of product mix. Concession products are primarily comprised of various sizes of popcorn, soft drinks and candy. Different varieties and flavors of candy and soft drinks are offered at theatres based on preferences in that particular geographic region. Specially priced combos are launched on a regular basis to increase average concession purchases as well as to attract new buyers. Kids’ meals are also offered and packaged towards younger patrons.
 
    Staff training. Employees are continually trained in “suggestive-selling” and “upselling” techniques. Consumer promotions conducted at the concession stand always include a motivational element which rewards theatre staff for exceptional combo sales during the period.
     A formalized crew program is in place to reward front line employees who excel in delivering rapid service. The Speed of Service (SOS) program is held annually to kick off peak business periods and refresh training and the importance of speed at the front line.
    Theatre design. Our theatres are designed to optimize efficiencies at the concession stands, which include multiple service stations to facilitate serving more customers quicker. We strategically place large concession stands within theatres to heighten visibility, reduce the length of concession lines, and improve traffic flow around the concession stands. Century’s concession areas are designed as individual self-service stations which allow customers to select their choice of refreshments and proceed to the cash register. This design presents efficient service, enhanced choice and superior visibility of concession items. Concession designs in many of our new theatres have begun to incorporate the benefits experienced with the Century model.
    Cost control. We negotiate prices for concession supplies directly with concession vendors and manufacturers to obtain bulk rates. Concession supplies are distributed through a national distribution network. The concession distributor supplies and distributes inventory to the theatres, which place volume orders directly with the vendors to replenish stock. The concession distributor is paid a percentage fee for warehousing and delivery of concession goods on a weekly basis.
Participation in National CineMedia
     In March 2005, Regal Entertainment, Inc., (“Regal”), and AMC Entertainment, Inc., (“AMC”), formed National CineMedia, LLC, (“NCM”), and on July 15, 2005, we joined NCM, as one of the founding members. NCM operates the largest in-theatre network in the U.S. which delivers digital advertising content and digital non-film event content to the screens and lobbies of the three largest motion picture exhibitors in the country. The digital projectors are currently used to display advertising and are not intended to be used to exhibit digital film content or digital cinema. NCM’s primary activities that impact us include the following activities:

Table of Contents

    Advertising: NCM develops, produces, sells and distributes a branded, pre-feature entertainment and advertising program called “FirstLook,” along with an advertising program for its lobby entertainment network and various marketing and promotional products in theatre lobbies;
 
    CineMeetings: NCM provides live and pre-recorded networked and single-site meetings and events in the theatres throughout its network; and
 
    Digital Programming Events: NCM distributes live and pre-recorded concerts, sporting events and other non-film entertainment programming to theatres across its digital network.
     We believe that the reach, scope and digital delivery capability of NCM’s network provides an effective platform for national, regional and local advertisers to reach a young, affluent and engaged audience on a highly targeted and measurable basis.
     On February 13, 2007, we received $389.0 million in connection with National CineMedia, Inc.’s or NCM Inc.’s, initial public offering and related transactions, or the NCM Transaction. As a result of these transactions, we no longer receive a percentage of NCM’s revenue but rather a monthly theatre access fee. In addition, we are entitled to receive mandatory quarterly distributions of excess cash from NCM. Prior to the initial public offering of NCM Inc. common stock, our ownership interest in NCM was approximately 25% and subsequent to the completion of the offering we own an approximate 14% interest in NCM. See Note 7 to the consolidated financial statements.
     In our international markets, we generally outsource our screen advertising to local companies who have established relationships with local advertisers that provide similar benefits as NCM.
Participation in Digital Cinema Implementation Partners
     On February 12, 2007, we, AMC and Regal, entered into a joint venture known as Digital Cinema Implementation Partners LLC, (“DCIP”), to facilitate the implementation of digital cinema in our theatres and to establish agreements with major motion picture studios for the financing of digital cinema. Future digital cinema developments will be managed by DCIP, subject to certain approvals by us, AMC and Regal.
Marketing
     In the U.S., we rely on newspaper display advertisements, paid for by film distributors, newspaper directory film schedules, generally paid for by us, and Internet advertising, which has emerged as an attractive media source to inform patrons of film titles and showtimes. Radio and television advertising spots, generally paid for by film distributors, are used to promote certain motion pictures and special events. We also exhibit previews of coming attractions and films presently playing on the other screens which we operate in the same theatre or market. We have successfully used the Internet to provide patrons access to movie times, the ability to buy and print their tickets at home and purchase gift cards and other advanced sale-type certificates. The Internet is becoming a popular way to check movie showtimes and to view movie previews. Many newspapers add an Internet component to their advertising and add movie showtimes to their Internet sites. We use monthly web contests with film distributor partners to drive traffic to our website and ensure that customers visit often. In addition, we work on a regular basis with all of the film distributors to promote their films with local, regional and national programs that are exclusive to our theatres. These may involve customer contests, cross-promotions with third parties, media on-air tie-ins and other means to increase traffic to a particular film showing at one of our theatres.
     Internationally, we partner with large multi-national corporations, in the larger metropolitan areas in which we have theatres, to promote our brand, our image and to increase attendance levels at our theatres. Our customers are encouraged to register on our website to receive weekly information via e-mail for showtime information, invitations to special screenings, sponsored events and promotional information. In addition, our customers can request to receive showtime information via their cellular phones.
     Our marketing department also focuses on maximizing ancillary revenue, which includes the sale of our gift cards, gift certificates and discount tickets, which are called SuperSavers. We market these programs to such business representatives as realtors, human resource managers, incentive program managers and hospital and pharmaceutical personnel. Gift cards and gift certificates can be purchased at our theatres. Gift cards, gift certificates and SuperSavers are

Table of Contents

also sold online, via phone, fax, email and regular mail and fulfilled in-house from the local corporate office. Additionally, we sell SuperSavers through third party retailers.
Online Sales
     Our patrons may purchase advance tickets for all of our domestic screens and 339 of our international screens by accessing our corporate website at www.cinemark.com or www.fandango.com. Our Internet initiatives help improve customer satisfaction, allowing patrons who purchase tickets over the Internet to often bypass lines at the box office by printing their tickets at home or picking up their tickets at kiosks in the theatre lobby.
Point of Sale Systems
     We developed our own proprietary point of sale system to further enhance our ability to maximize revenues, control costs and efficiently manage operations. The system is currently installed in all of our U.S. theatres and our one Canadian theatre. The point of sale system provides corporate management with real-time admissions and concession revenues reports that allow managers to make timely changes to movie schedules, including extending film runs, increasing the number of screens on which successful movies are being played, or substituting films when gross receipts do not meet expectations. Real-time seating and box office information is available to box office personnel, preventing overselling of a particular film and providing faster and more accurate responses to customer inquiries regarding showtimes and available seating. The system tracks concession sales, provides in-theatre inventory reports allowing for efficient inventory management and control, has multiple language capabilities, offers numerous ticket pricing options, integrates Internet ticket sales and processes credit card transactions. Barcode scanners, pole displays, touch screens, credit card readers and other equipment are integrated with the system to enhance its functions. In our international locations, we currently use other point of sale systems that have either been developed internally or by third parties, which have been certified as compliant with applicable governmental regulations.
Competition
     We are one of the leading motion picture exhibitors in terms of both revenues and the number of screens in operation. We compete against local, regional, national and international exhibitors with respect to attracting patrons, licensing films and developing new theatre sites.
     We are the sole exhibitor in approximately 85% of the 235 first run film zones in which our first run U.S. theatres operate. In film zones where there is no direct competition from other theatres, we select those films we believe will be the most successful from among those offered to us by film distributors. Where there is competition, we usually license films based on an allocation process. Of the 1,011 screens we operate outside of the U.S., approximately 72% of those screens have no direct competition from other theatres. The principal competitive factors with respect to film licensing are:
    location, accessibility and capacity of an exhibitor’s theatre;
 
    theatre comfort;
 
    quality of projection and sound equipment;
 
    level of customer service; and
 
    licensing terms.
     The competition for customers is dependent upon factors such as the availability of popular films, the location of theatres, the comfort and quality of theatres and ticket prices. Our ticket prices are competitive with ticket prices of competing theatres.
     We also face competition from a number of other motion picture exhibition delivery systems, such as DVDs, network and syndicated television, video on-demand, pay-per-view television and downloading utilizing the Internet. We do not believe that these additional distribution channels have adversely affected theatre attendance; however, we can give no assurance that these or other alternative delivery systems will not have an adverse impact on attendance in the future. We

10


Table of Contents

also face competition from other forms of entertainment competing for the public’s leisure time and disposable income, such as concerts, theme parks and sporting events.
Corporate Operations
     We maintain a corporate office in Plano, Texas that provides oversight for our domestic and international theatres. Domestic operations include theatre operations support, film licensing and settlements, human resources, legal, finance and accounting, operational audit, theatre maintenance and construction, Internet and information systems, real estate and marketing. Our U.S. operations are divided into sixteen regions, each of which is headed by a region leader.
     International personnel in the corporate office include our President of Cinemark International, L.L.C. and vice presidents/directors in charge of film licensing, concessions, theatre operations support, theatre maintenance and construction, real estate, legal, operational audit, information systems and accounting. We have a chief financial officer in both Brazil and Mexico, which are our two largest international markets. We have eight regional offices in Latin America responsible for the local management of operations in twelve individual countries. Each regional office is headed by a general manager and includes personnel in film licensing, marketing, human resources, operations and accounting. The regional offices are staffed with nationals from the region to overcome cultural and operational barriers.
Employees
     We have approximately 12,300 employees in the U.S., approximately 10% of whom are full time employees and 90% of whom are part time employees. We have approximately 4,400 employees in our international markets, approximately 39% of whom are full time employees and approximately 61% of whom are part time employees. Seventeen U.S. employees are represented by unions under collective bargaining agreements. Some of our international locations are subject to union regulations. We regard our relations with our employees to be satisfactory.
Regulations
     The distribution of motion pictures is largely regulated by federal and state antitrust laws and has been the subject of numerous antitrust cases. We have not been a party to such cases, but the manner in which we can license films from certain major film distributors is subject to consent decrees resulting from these cases. Consent decrees bind certain major film distributors and require the films of such distributors to be offered and licensed to exhibitors, including us, on a theatre-by-theatre and film-by-film basis. Consequently, exhibitors cannot assure themselves a supply of films by entering long-term arrangements with major distributors, but must negotiate for licenses on a theatre-by-theatre and film-by-film basis.
     We are subject to various general regulations applicable to our operations including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, or the ADA. We develop new theatres to be accessible to the disabled and we believe we are in substantial compliance with current regulations relating to accommodating the disabled. Although we believe that our theatres comply with the ADA, we have been a party to lawsuits which claim that our handicapped seating arrangements do not comply with the ADA or that we are required to provide captioning for patrons who are deaf or are severely hearing impaired.
     Our theatre operations are also subject to federal, state and local laws governing such matters as wages, working conditions, citizenship, health and sanitation requirements and licensing.
Financial Information About Geographic Areas
     We have operations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Colombia, which are reflected in the consolidated financial statements. See Note 22 to the consolidated financial statements for segment information.

Item 1A. Risk Factors
     Our business depends on film production and performance.
     Our business depends on both the availability of suitable films for exhibition in our theatres and the success of those pictures in our markets. Poor performance of films, the disruption in the production of films due to events such as a strike by directors, writers or actors, or a reduction in the marketing efforts of the film distributors to promote their films could have an adverse effect on our business by resulting in fewer patrons and reduced revenues.
     A deterioration in relationships with film distributors could adversely affect our ability to obtain commercially successful films.
     We rely on the film distributors for the motion pictures shown in our theatres. The film distribution business is highly concentrated, with six major film distributors accounting for approximately 78% of U.S. box office revenues and 42 of the top 50 grossing films during 2007. Numerous antitrust cases and consent decrees resulting from these cases impact the distribution of motion pictures. The consent decrees bind certain major film distributors to license films to exhibitors on a theatre-by-theatre and film-by-film basis. Consequently, we cannot guarantee a supply of films by entering into long-term arrangements with major distributors. We are therefore required to negotiate licenses for each film and for each theatre. A deterioration in our relationship with any of the six major film distributors could adversely affect our ability to obtain commercially successful films and to negotiate favorable licensing terms for such films, both of which could adversely affect our business and operating results.
     We face intense competition for patrons and film licensing which may adversely affect our business.
     The motion picture industry is highly competitive. We compete against local, regional, national and international exhibitors. We compete for both patrons and licensing of motion pictures. The competition for patrons is dependent upon such factors as the availability of popular motion pictures, the location and number of theatres and screens in a market, the comfort and quality of the theatres and pricing. Some of our competitors have greater resources and may have lower costs. The principal competitive factors with respect to film licensing include licensing terms, number of seats and screens available for a particular picture, revenue potential and the location and condition of an exhibitor’s theatres. If we are unable to license successful films, our business may be adversely affected.
     The oversupply of screens in the motion picture exhibition industry and other factors may adversely affect the performance of some of our theatres.
     During the period between 1996 and 2000, theatre exhibitor companies emphasized the development of large multiplexes. The strategy of aggressively building multiplexes was adopted throughout the industry and resulted in an oversupply of screens in the North American exhibition industry and negatively impacted many older multiplex theatres more than expected. Many of these theatres have long lease commitments making them financially burdensome to close prior to the expiration of the lease term, even theatres that are unprofitable. Where theatres have been closed, landlords have often made rent concessions to small independent or regional operators to keep the theatres open since theatre buildings are typically limited in alternative uses. As a result, some analysts believe that there continues to be an oversupply of screens in the North American exhibition industry, as screen counts have increased each year since 2003. If competitors build theatres in the markets we serve, the performance of some of our theatres could be adversely affected due to increased competition.
     An increase in the use of alternative or “downstream” film distribution channels and other competing forms of entertainment may drive down movie theatre attendance and limit ticket price growth.
     We face competition for patrons from a number of alternative motion picture distribution channels, such as DVDs, network and syndicated television, video on-demand, pay-per-view television and downloading utilizing the Internet. We also compete with other forms of entertainment competing for our patrons’ leisure time and disposable income such as concerts, amusement parks and sporting events. A significant increase in popularity of these alternative film distribution channels and competing forms of entertainment could have an adverse effect on our business and results of operations.

     Our results of operations may be impacted by shrinking video release windows.
     Over the last decade, the average video release window, which represents the time that elapses from the date of a film’s theatrical release to the date a film is available on DVD, an important downstream market, has decreased from approximately six months to approximately four months. We cannot assure you that this release window, which is determined by the film studios, will not shrink further or be eliminated altogether, which could have an adverse impact on our business and results of operations.
     We have substantial long-term lease and debt obligations, which may restrict our ability to fund current and future operations.
     We have significant long-term debt service obligations and long-term lease obligations. As of December 31, 2007, we had $1,574.4 million in long-term debt obligations, $121.2 million in capital lease obligations and $1,958.4 million in long-term operating lease obligations. We incurred $145.6 million of interest expense for the year ended December 31, 2007. We incurred $212.7 million of rent expense for the year ended December 31, 2007 under operating leases (with terms, excluding renewal options, ranging from one to 30 years). Our substantial lease and debt obligations pose risk to you by:
    making it more difficult for us to satisfy our obligations;
 
    requiring us to dedicate a substantial portion of our cash flow to payments on our lease and debt obligations, thereby reducing the availability of our cash flow to fund working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions and other corporate requirements and to pay dividends;
 
    impeding our ability to obtain additional financing in the future for working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions and general corporate purposes;
 
    subjecting us to the risk of increased sensitivity to interest rate increases on our variable rate debt, including our borrowings under our senior secured credit facility; and
 
    making us more vulnerable to a downturn in our business and competitive pressures and limiting our flexibility to plan for, or react to, changes in our business.
     Our ability to make scheduled payments of principal and interest with respect to our indebtedness and service our lease obligations will depend on our ability to generate cash flow from our operations. To a certain extent, our ability to generate cash flow is subject to general economic, financial, competitive, regulatory and other factors that are beyond our control. We cannot assure you that we will continue to generate cash flow at current levels. If we fail to make any required payment under the agreements governing our indebtedness or fail to comply with the financial and operating covenants contained in them, we would be in default and our lenders would have the ability to require that we immediately repay our outstanding indebtedness. If we fail to make any required payment under our leases, we would be in default and our landlords would have the ability to terminate our leases and re-enter the premises. Subject to the restrictions contained in our indebtedness agreements, we expect to incur additional indebtedness from time to time to finance acquisitions, capital expenditures, working capital requirements and other general business purposes. In addition, we may need to refinance all or a portion of our indebtedness, including Cinemark USA, Inc.’s senior secured credit facility and Cinemark, Inc.’s 9 3/4% senior discount notes, on or before maturity. However, we may not be able to refinance all or any of our indebtedness on commercially reasonable terms or at all.
     We are subject to various covenants in our debt agreements that restrict our ability to enter into certain transactions.
     The agreements governing our debt obligations contain various financial and operating covenants that limit our ability to engage in certain transactions, that require us not to allow specific events to occur or that require us to apply proceeds from certain transactions to reduce indebtedness. If we fail to make any required payment under the agreements governing our indebtedness or fail to comply with the financial and operating covenants contained in them, we would be in default, and our debt holders would have the ability to require that we immediately repay our outstanding indebtedness. Any such defaults could materially impair our financial condition and liquidity. We cannot assure you that we would be able to refinance our outstanding indebtedness if debt holders require repayments as a result of a default.

     General political, social and economic conditions can adversely affect our attendance.
     Our results of operations are dependent on general political, social and economic conditions, and the impact of such conditions on our theatre operating costs and on the willingness of consumers to spend money at movie theatres. If consumers’ discretionary income declines as a result of an economic downturn, our operations could be adversely affected. If theatre operating costs, such as utility costs, increase due to political or economic changes, our results of operations could be adversely affected. Political events, such as terrorist attacks, could cause people to avoid our theatres or other public places where large crowds are in attendance.
     Our foreign operations are subject to adverse regulations and currency exchange risk.
     We have 121 theatres with 1,011 screens in twelve countries in Latin America. Brazil and Mexico represented approximately 9.3% and 4.5% of our consolidated 2007 revenues, respectively. Governmental regulation of the motion picture industry in foreign markets differs from that in the United States. Regulations affecting prices, quota systems requiring the exhibition of locally-produced films and restrictions on ownership of land may adversely affect our international operations in foreign markets. Our international operations are subject to certain political, economic and other uncertainties not encountered by our domestic operations, including risks of severe economic downturns and high inflation. We also face the additional risks of currency fluctuations, hard currency shortages and controls of foreign currency exchange and transfers abroad, all of which could have an adverse effect on the results of our international operations.
     We may not be able to generate additional revenues or realize value from our investment in NCM.
     We joined Regal and AMC as founding members of NCM in 2005. After the completion of NCM Inc.’s initial public offering, we continue to own a 14% interest in NCM. In connection with the NCM Inc. initial public offering, we modified our Exhibitor Services Agreement to reflect a shift from circuit share expense under the prior exhibitor service agreement, which obligated NCM to pay us a percentage of revenue, to a monthly theatre access fee. The theatre access fee has significantly reduced the contractual amounts paid to us by NCM.
     Cinema advertising is a small component of the U.S. advertising market. Accordingly, NCM competes with larger, established and well known media platforms such as broadcast radio and television, cable and satellite television, outdoor advertising and Internet portals. NCM also competes with other cinema advertising companies and with hotels, conference centers, arenas, restaurants and convention facilities for its non-film related events to be shown in our auditoriums. In-theatre advertising may not continue to attract advertisers or NCM’s in-theatre advertising format may not continue to be received favorably by the theatre-going public. If NCM is unable to continue to generate expected sales of advertising, it may not maintain the level of profitability we hope to achieve, its results of operations may be adversely affected and our investment in and revenues from NCM may be adversely impacted.
     We are subject to uncertainties related to digital cinema, including potentially high costs of re-equipping theatres with projectors to show digital movies.
     Digital cinema is still in an experimental stage in our industry. Some of our competitors have commenced a roll-out of digital equipment for exhibiting feature films. There are multiple parties vying for the position of being the primary generator of the digital projector roll-out for exhibiting feature films. However, significant obstacles exist that impact such a roll-out plan including the cost of digital projectors, the substantial investment in re-equipping theatres and determining who will be responsible for such costs. We cannot assure you that we will be able to obtain financing arrangements to fund our portion of the digital cinema roll-out nor that such financing will be available to us on acceptable terms, if at all.
     We are subject to uncertainties relating to future expansion plans, including our ability to identify suitable acquisition candidates or site locations.
     We have greatly expanded our operations over the last decade through targeted worldwide theatre development and the Century Acquisition. We will continue to pursue a strategy of expansion that will involve the development of new theatres and may involve acquisitions of existing theatres and theatre circuits both in the U.S. and internationally. There is significant competition for new site locations and for existing theatre and theatre circuit acquisition opportunities. As a result of such competition, we may not be able to acquire attractive site locations, existing theatres or theatre circuits on terms we consider acceptable. We cannot assure you that our expansion strategy will result in improvements to our

14


Table of Contents

business, financial condition or profitability. Further, our expansion programs may require financing above our existing borrowing capacity and internally generated funds. We cannot assure you that we will be able to obtain such financing nor that such financing will be available to us on acceptable terms.
     If we do not comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and a consent order we entered into with the Department of Justice, we could be subject to further litigation.
     Our theatres must comply with Title III of the ADA and analogous state and local laws. Compliance with the ADA requires among other things that public facilities “reasonably accommodate” individuals with disabilities and that new construction or alterations made to “commercial facilities” conform to accessibility guidelines unless “structurally impracticable” for new construction or technically infeasible for alterations. In March 1999, the Department of Justice, or DOJ, filed suit against us in Ohio alleging certain violations of the ADA relating to wheelchair seating arrangements in certain of our stadium-style theatres and seeking remedial action. We and the DOJ have resolved this lawsuit and a consent order was entered by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, on November 15, 2004. Under the consent order, we are required to make modifications to wheelchair seating locations in fourteen stadium-style movie theatres and spacing and companion seating modifications in 67 auditoriums at other stadium-styled movie theatres. These modifications must be completed by November 2009. We are currently in compliance with the consent order. Upon completion of these modifications, these theatres will comply with wheelchair seating requirements, and no further modifications will be required to our other stadium-style movie theatres in the United States existing on the date of the consent order. In addition, under the consent order, the DOJ approved the seating plans for nine stadium-styled movie theatres then under construction and also created a safe harbor framework for us to construct all of our future stadium-style movie theatres. The DOJ has stipulated that all theatres built in compliance with the consent order will comply with the wheelchair seating requirements of the ADA. If we fail to comply with the ADA, remedies could include imposition of injunctive relief, fines, awards for damages to private litigants and additional capital expenditures to remedy non-compliance. Imposition of significant fines, damage awards or capital expenditures to cure non-compliance could adversely affect our business and operating results.
     We depend on key personnel for our current and future performance.
     Our current and future performance depends to a significant degree upon the continued contributions of our senior management team and other key personnel. The loss or unavailability to us of any member of our senior management team or a key employee could significantly harm us. We cannot assure you that we would be able to locate or employ qualified replacements for senior management or key employees on acceptable terms.
     We are subject to impairment losses due to potential declines in the fair value of our assets.
     We review long-lived assets for impairment on a quarterly basis or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of the assets may not be fully recoverable.
     We assess many factors when determining whether to impair individual theatre assets, including actual theatre level cash flows, future years budgeted theatre level cash flows, theatre property and equipment carrying values, theatre goodwill carrying values, the age of a recently built theatre, competitive theatres in the marketplace, changes in foreign currency exchange rates, the impact of recent ticket price changes, available lease renewal options and other factors considered relevant in our assessment of impairment of individual theatre assets. The impairment evaluation is based on the estimated cash flows from continuing use through the remainder of the theatre’s useful life. The remainder of the useful life correlates with the available remaining lease period, which includes the probability of renewal periods, for leased properties and a period of twenty years for fee owned properties. If the estimated cash flows are not sufficient to recover a long-lived asset’s carrying value, we then compare the carrying value of the asset group (theatre) with its estimated fair value. Fair value is determined based on a multiple of cash flows, which was seven times for 2005 and eight times for the evaluations performed during 2006 and 2007. When estimated fair value is determined to be lower than the carrying value of the asset group (theatre), the asset group (theatre) is written down to its estimated fair value. Significant judgment is involved in estimating cash flows and fair value. Management’s estimates are based on historical and projected operating performance as well as recent market transactions.
     We also test goodwill and other intangible assets for impairment at least annually in accordance with SFAS No. 142, “Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets.” Goodwill and other intangible assets are tested for impairment at the reporting unit level at least annually or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable. Factors considered include significant underperformance relative to historical or projected business and

15


Table of Contents

significant negative industry or economic trends. Goodwill impairment is evaluated using a two-step approach requiring us to compute the fair value of a reporting unit (generally at the theatre level), and compare it with its carrying value. If the carrying value of the theatre exceeds its fair value, a second step would be performed to measure the potential goodwill impairment. Fair value is estimated based on a multiple of cash flows, which was seven times for 2005 and eight times for the evaluations performed during 2006 and 2007. Significant judgment is involved in estimating cash flows and fair value. Management’s estimates are based on historical and projected operating performance as well as recent market transactions. We allocate goodwill at the theatre level. This results in more volatile impairment charges on an annual basis due to changes in market conditions and box office performance and the resulting impact on individual theatres.
     We recorded asset impairment charges, including goodwill impairment charges, of $51.7 million, $28.5 million and $86.6 million for the years ended December 31, 2005, 2006 and 2007, respectively. We cannot assure you that additional impairment charges will not be required in the future, and such charges may have an adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations. See “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and Notes 10 and 11 to the consolidated financial statements.
     Our results of operations vary from period to period based upon the quantity and quality of the motion pictures that we show in our theatres.
     Our results of operations vary from period to period based upon the quantity and quality of the motion pictures that we show in our theatres. The major film distributors generally release the films they anticipate will be most successful during the summer and holiday seasons. Consequently, we typically generate higher revenues during these periods. Due to the dependency on the success of films released from one period to the next, results of operations for one period may not be indicative of the results for the following period or the same period in the following year.
Item 2. Properties
     United States
     As of December 31, 2007, we operated 244 theatres, with 3,047 screens, pursuant to leases and own the land and building for 43 theatres, with 607 screens, in the U.S. During 2007, we opened 13 new theatres with 201 screens. Our leases are generally entered into on a long-term basis with terms, including renewal options, generally ranging from 20 to 45 years. As of December 31, 2007, approximately 10% of our theatre leases in the U.S., covering 25 theatres with 205 screens, have remaining terms, including optional renewal periods, of less than five years. Approximately 13% of our theatre leases in the U.S., covering 31 theatres with 275 screens, have remaining terms, including optional renewal periods, of between six and 15 years and approximately 77% of our theatre leases in the U.S., covering 188 theatres with 2,567 screens, have remaining terms, including optional renewal periods, of more than 15 years. The leases generally provide for a fixed monthly minimum rent payment, with certain leases also subject to additional percentage rent if a target annual revenue level is achieved. We lease an office building in Plano, Texas for our corporate office.
     International
     As of December 31, 2007, internationally, we operated 121 theatres, with 1,011 screens, all of which are leased pursuant to ground or building leases. In 2007, we opened seven new theatres with 56 screens in Latin America. Our international leases are generally entered into on a long term basis with terms generally ranging from 10 to 20 years. The leases generally provide for contingent rental based upon operating results (some of which are subject to an annual minimum). Generally, these leases include renewal options for various periods at stipulated rates. Three international theatres with 26 screens have a remaining term, including optional renewal periods, of less than five years. Approximately 27% of our international theatre leases, covering 33 theatres and 278 screens, have remaining terms, including optional renewal periods, of between six and 15 years and approximately 70% of our international theatre leases, covering 85 theatres and 707 screens, have remaining terms, including optional renewal periods, of more than 15 years.
     See Note 21 to the consolidated financial statements for information regarding our domestic and international lease commitments. We periodically review the profitability of each of our theatres, particularly those whose lease terms are nearing expiration, to determine whether to continue its operations.

Item 3. Legal Proceedings
     We resolved a lawsuit filed by the DOJ in March 1999 which alleged certain violations of the ADA relating to wheelchair seating arrangements in certain of our stadium-style theatres. We and the DOJ agreed to a consent order which was entered by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, on November 15, 2004. Under the consent order, we are required to make modifications to wheelchair seating locations in fourteen stadium-style movie theatres and spacing and companion seating modifications in 67 auditoriums at other stadium-styled movie theatres. These modifications must be completed by November 2009. We are currently in compliance with the consent order. Upon completion of these modifications, these theatres will comply with wheelchair seating requirements, and no further modifications will be required to our other stadium-style movie theatres in the United States existing on the date of the consent order. In addition, under the consent order, the DOJ approved the seating plans for nine stadium-styled movie theatres then under construction and also created a safe harbor framework for us to construct all of our future stadium-style movie theatres. The DOJ has stipulated that all theatres built in compliance with the consent order will comply with the wheelchair seating requirements of the ADA. We do not believe that our requirements under the consent order will materially affect our business or financial condition.
     From time to time, we are involved in other various legal proceedings arising from the ordinary course of our business operations, such as personal injury claims, employment matters, landlord-tenant disputes and contractual disputes, most of which are covered by insurance. We believe our potential liability, with respect to proceedings currently pending, is not material, individually or in the aggregate, to our financial position, results of operations and cash flows.
Item 4. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders
     On October 1, 2007, our board of directors approved and recommended to the stockholders an amendment to the Cinemark Holdings, Inc. 2006 Long Term Incentive Plan (the “2006 Plan”). On October 15, 2007, a majority of the stockholders approved the First Amendment to the 2006 Plan (the “First Amendment”) and an Information Statement was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on October 16, 2007. The Information Statement was mailed to all stockholders on October 22, 2007 to inform the stockholders that we have obtained the written consent of the requisite holders of common stock to amend the 2006 Plan and to serve as notice to the stockholders of such action in accordance with Section 228(e) of the Delaware General Corporation Law. The First Amendment to the 2006 Plan became effective November 12, 2007. A copy of the First Amendment to the 2006 Plan is attached as Exhibit 10.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on November 15, 2007.

PART II
Item 5. Market for Registrant’s Common Equity and Related Stockholder Matters
Market Information and Holder
     Our common equity consists of common stock, which has traded on the New York Stock Exchange since April 23, 2007 under the symbol “CNK.” The following table sets forth the historical high and low sales prices per share of our common stock as reported by the New York Stock Exchange for the fiscal periods indicated.
                 
    Fiscal 2007
    High   Low
Second Quarter (April 23, 2007 – June 30, 2007)
  $ 20.69     $ 16.15  
Third Quarter (July 1, 2007 – September 30, 2007)
  $ 19.48     $ 14.83  
Fourth Quarter (October 1, 2007 – December 31, 2007)
  $ 20.00     $ 15.81  
     On February 29, 2008, there were 39 stockholders of record of our common stock.
Dividend Policy
     During August 2007, we initiated a quarterly dividend. Consistent with the disclosures in our 424(b)(1) prospectus, the dividend for the second quarter of 2007 was based upon the quarterly dividend rate of $0.18 per common share, prorated based on the April 27, 2007 closing date of our initial public offering. Based on such proration, a cash dividend of $0.13 per share of common stock was paid on September 18, 2007. The dividend for the third quarter was the first dividend paid by us reflecting a full quarter since our initial public offering and was paid in the amount of $0.18 per share of common stock on December 18, 2007. We paid dividends of approximately $33.1 million in the aggregate during 2007. The divided for the fourth quarter of 2007 was paid in the amount of $0.18 per share of common stock on March 14, 2008. We, at the discretion of the board of directors and subject to applicable law, anticipate paying regular quarterly dividends on our common stock for the foreseeable future. The amount, if any, of the dividends to be paid in the future will depend upon our then available cash, anticipated cash needs, overall financial condition, loan agreement restrictions, future prospects for earnings and cash flows, as well as other relevant factors.
Performance Graph
     The following graph compares the cumulative total stockholder return on our common stock for the period April 24, 2007 (the closing price on the first trading date) through December 31, 2007 (our fiscal year end) with the Standard and Poor’s Corporation Composite 500 Index and a self-determined peer group of two public companies engaged in the motion picture exhibition industry. The peer group consists of Regal Entertainment Group and Carmike Cinemas, Inc.

Use of Proceeds
     There has been no material change in the planned use of proceeds from our initial public offering as described in our final prospectus filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b). Pending the application of the net proceeds, we have invested the proceeds in short-term, investment-grade marketable securities or money market obligations. During July and August 2007, we repurchased in six open market purchases a total of $47.0 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of our 9 3/4% senior discount notes for approximately $42.8 million, including accreted interest of $10.9 million and a cash premium of $2.5 million. During November 2007, we repurchased in one open market purchase $22.2 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of our 9 3/4% senior discount notes for approximately $20.9 million, including accreted interest of $5.7 million and a cash premium of $1.5 million. During March 2008, we repurchased in one open market purchase $10.0 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of our 9 3/4% senior discount notes for approximately $9.0 million, including accreted interest of $2.9 million. We funded these transactions with the proceeds from our initial public offering.

(4)   The data excludes certain theatres operated internationally through our affiliates that are not part of our consolidated operations.
 
(5)   The data for 2003 excludes theatres, screens and attendance for eight theatres and 46 screens acquired on December 31, 2003, as the results of operations for these theatres are not included in our 2003 consolidated results of operations.
 
(6)   For the purposes of calculating the ratio of earnings to fixed charges, earnings consist of income (loss) from continuing operations before taxes plus fixed charges excluding capitalized interest. Fixed charges consist of interest expense, capitalized interest, amortization of debt issue cost and that portion of rental expense which we believe to be representative of the interest factor. For the period from January 1, 2004 to April 1, 2004, earnings were insufficient to cover fixed charges by $12.7 million.

Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
     The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and accompanying notes included in this report.
Overview
     On April 2, 2004, an affiliate of MDP acquired approximately 83% of the capital stock of Cinemark, Inc., pursuant to which a newly formed subsidiary owned by an affiliate of MDP was merged with and into Cinemark, Inc. with Cinemark, Inc. continuing as the surviving corporation. Simultaneously, an affiliate of MDP purchased shares of Cinemark, Inc.’s common stock and became Cinemark, Inc.’s controlling stockholder. Lee Roy Mitchell, Chairman and then Chief Executive Officer, the Mitchell Special Trust, and certain members of management collectively retained a minority ownership of Cinemark, Inc.’s capital stock. In December 2004, MDP sold a portion of its stock in Cinemark, Inc. to outside investors and in July 2005, Cinemark, Inc. issued additional shares to another outside investor.
     On August 2, 2006, Cinemark Holdings, Inc. was formed as the Delaware holding company of Cinemark, Inc. On August 7, 2006, the Cinemark, Inc. stockholders entered into a share exchange agreement pursuant to which they agreed to exchange their shares of Class A common stock for an equal number of shares of common stock of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. (“Cinemark Share Exchange”). The Cinemark Share Exchange was completed on October 5, 2006 and facilitated the acquisition of Century Theatres, Inc. (“Century Acquisition”) on that date. On October 5, 2006, Cinemark, Inc. became a wholly owned subsidiary of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. Prior to October 5, 2006, Cinemark Holdings, Inc. had no assets, liabilities or operations. The accompanying consolidated financial statements are reflective of the change in reporting entity that occurred as a result of the Cinemark Share Exchange. Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s consolidated financial statements reflect the accounting basis of its stockholders for all periods presented. On April 24, 2007, Cinemark Holdings, Inc. completed an initial public offering of its common stock.
     As of December 31, 2007, we managed our business under two operating segments – U.S. markets and international markets, in accordance with SFAS No. 131 “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information.” See Note 22 to the consolidated financial statements.
Revenues and Expenses
     We generate revenues primarily from box office receipts and concession sales with additional revenues from screen advertising sales and other revenue streams, such as vendor marketing programs, pay phones, ATM machines and electronic video games located in some of our theatres. Our investment in NCM has assisted us in expanding our offerings to advertisers, exploring ancillary revenue sources such as digital video monitor advertising, third party branding, and the use of theatres for non-film events. In addition, we are able to use theatres during non-peak hours for concerts, sporting events, and other cultural events. Successful films released during the year ended December 31, 2007 included Spider-Man 3, Shrek the Third, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and Transformers, which all grossed over $300 million; Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Bourne Ultimatum, Ratatouille, I am Legend, National Treasure: Book of Secrets and 300, which all grossed over $200 million; and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, I now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, and Knocked Up. Our revenues are affected by changes in attendance and average admissions and concession revenues per patron. Attendance is primarily affected by the quality and quantity of films released by motion picture studios. Films scheduled for release during 2008 include Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, The Dark Knight, Wall-E, Hancock, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor and the release of 3-D movies such as Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds and Journey to the Center of the Earth. In 2009, a broad slate of 3-D films is expected, including Monsters vs. Aliens, Ice Age 3, and Avatar.
     Film rental costs are variable in nature and fluctuate with our admissions revenues. Film rental costs as a percentage of revenues are generally higher for periods in which more blockbuster films are released. Film rental costs can also vary based on the length of a film’s run. Film rental rates are negotiated on a film-by-film and theatre-by-theatre basis. Advertising costs, which are expensed as incurred, are primarily fixed at the theatre level as daily movie directories placed in newspapers represent the largest component of advertising costs. The monthly cost of these advertisements is based on, among other things, the size of the directory and the frequency and size of the newspaper’s circulation.

     Concession supplies expense is variable in nature and fluctuates with our concession revenues. We purchase concession supplies to replace units sold. We negotiate prices for concession supplies directly with concession vendors and manufacturers to obtain bulk rates.
     Although salaries and wages include a fixed cost component (i.e. the minimum staffing costs to operate a theatre facility during non-peak periods), salaries and wages move in relation to revenues as theatre staffing is adjusted to handle changes in attendance.
     Facility lease expense is primarily a fixed cost at the theatre level as most of our facility leases require a fixed monthly minimum rent payment. Certain of our leases are subject to percentage rent only while others are subject to percentage rent in addition to their fixed monthly rent if a target annual revenue level is achieved. Facility lease expense as a percentage of revenues is also affected by the number of theatres under operating leases versus the number of theatres under capital leases and the number of fee-owned theatres.
     Utilities and other costs include certain costs that are fixed such as property taxes, certain costs that are variable such as liability insurance, and certain costs that possess both fixed and variable components such as utilities, repairs and maintenance and security services.
Critical Accounting Policies
     We prepare our consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. As such, we are required to make certain estimates and assumptions that we believe are reasonable based upon the information available. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented. The significant accounting policies, which we believe are the most critical to aid in fully understanding and evaluating our reported consolidated financial results, include the following:
Revenue and Expense Recognition
     Revenues are recognized when admissions and concession sales are received at the box office. Other revenues primarily consist of screen advertising. Screen advertising revenues are recognized over the period that the related advertising is delivered on-screen or in-theatre. We record proceeds from the sale of gift cards and other advanced sale-type certificates in current liabilities and recognize admissions and concession revenue when a holder redeems the card or certificate. We recognize unredeemed gift cards and other advanced sale-type certificates as revenue only after such a period of time indicates, based on historical experience, the likelihood of redemption is remote, and based on applicable laws and regulations. In evaluating the likelihood of redemption, we consider the period outstanding, the level and frequency of activity, and the period of inactivity.
     Film rental costs are accrued based on the applicable box office receipts and either the mutually agreed upon firm terms or a sliding scale formula, which are established prior to the opening of the picture, or estimates of the final mutually agreed upon settlement, which occurs at the conclusion of the picture run, subject to the film licensing arrangement. Estimates are based on the expected success of a film over the length of its run in theatres. The success of a film can typically be determined a few weeks after a film is released when initial box office performance of the film is known. Accordingly, final settlements typically approximate estimates since box office receipts are known at the time the estimate is made and the expected success of a film over the length of its run in theatres can typically be estimated early in the film’s run. The final film settlement amount is negotiated at the conclusion of the film’s run based upon how a film actually performs. If actual settlements are higher than those estimated, additional film rental costs are recorded at that time. We recognize advertising costs and any sharing arrangements with film distributors in the same accounting period. Our advertising costs are expensed as incurred.
     Facility lease expense is primarily a fixed cost at the theatre level as most of our facility leases require a fixed monthly minimum rent payment. Certain of our leases are subject to monthly percentage rent only, which is accrued each month based on actual revenues. Certain of our other theatres require payment of percentage rent in addition to fixed monthly rent if a target annual revenue level is achieved. Percentage rent expense is recorded for these theatres on a monthly basis if the theatre’s historical performance or forecasted performance indicates that the annual target will be reached. The estimate of percentage rent expense recorded during the year is based on a trailing twelve months of

Table of Contents

revenues. Once annual revenues are known, which is generally at the end of the year, the percentage rent expense is adjusted based on actual revenues.
     Theatre properties and equipment are depreciated using the straight-line method over their estimated useful lives. In estimating the useful lives of our theatre properties and equipment, we have relied upon our experience with such assets and our historical replacement period. We periodically evaluate these estimates and assumptions and adjust them as necessary. Adjustments to the expected lives of assets are accounted for on a prospective basis through depreciation expense.
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
     We review long-lived assets for impairment on a quarterly basis or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of the assets may not be fully recoverable. We assess many factors including the following to determine whether to impair individual theatre assets:
    actual theatre level cash flows;
 
    future years budgeted theatre level cash flows;
 
    theatre property and equipment carrying values;
 
    theatre goodwill carrying values;
 
    amortizing intangible asset carrying values;
 
    the age of a recently built theatre;
 
    competitive theatres in the marketplace;
 
    changes in foreign currency exchange rates;
 
    the impact of recent ticket price changes;
 
    available lease renewal options; and
 
    other factors considered relevant in our assessment of impairment of individual theatre assets.
     Long-lived assets are evaluated for impairment on an individual theatre basis, which we believe is the lowest applicable level for which there are identifiable cash flows. The impairment evaluation is based on the estimated cash flows from continuing use through the remainder of the theatre’s useful life. The remainder of the useful life correlates with the available remaining lease period, which includes the probability of renewal periods for leased properties and a period of twenty years for fee owned properties. If the estimated cash flows are not sufficient to recover a long-lived asset’s carrying value, we then compare the carrying value of the asset group (theatre) with its estimated fair value. Fair values are determined based on a multiple of cash flows, which was seven times for 2005 and eight times for the evaluations performed during 2006 and 2007. When estimated fair value is determined to be lower than the carrying value of the asset group (theatre), the asset group (theatre) is written down to its estimated fair value. Significant judgment is involved in estimating cash flows and fair value. Management’s estimates are based on historical and projected operating performance as well as recent market transactions.
Impairment of Goodwill and Intangible Assets
     We evaluate goodwill and tradename for impairment annually at fiscal year-end and any time events or circumstances indicate the carrying amount of the goodwill and intangible assets may not be fully recoverable. As a result of the NCM Transaction discussed in Note 7, and more specifically the modification of the NCM Exhibitor Services Agreement, which significantly reduced the contractual amounts paid to us, we evaluated the carrying value of our goodwill as of March 31, 2007 (See Notes 10 and 11). We also evaluated the carrying value of our goodwill as of December 31, 2007. We evaluate goodwill for impairment at the reporting unit level (generally a theatre) and have allocated goodwill to the reporting unit based on an estimate of its relative fair value. The evaluation is a two-step approach requiring us to compute the fair value of a theatre and compare it with its carrying value. If the carrying value exceeds fair value, a second step is performed to measure the potential goodwill impairment. Fair value is determined based on a multiple of cash flows, which was seven times for 2005 and eight times for the evaluations performed during 2006 and 2007. Significant judgment is involved in estimating cash flows and fair value. Management’s estimates are based on historical and projected operating performance as well as recent market transactions. Our policy of allocating

goodwill at the theatre level results in more volatile impairment charges on an annual basis due to changes in market conditions and box office performance and the resulting impact on individual theatres.
Acquisitions
     We account for acquisitions under the purchase method of accounting in accordance with SFAS No. 141, “Business Combinations.” The purchase method requires that we estimate the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed and allocate consideration paid accordingly. For significant acquisitions, we obtain independent third party valuation studies for certain of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed to assist us in determining fair value. The estimation of the fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed involves a number of estimates and assumptions that could differ materially from the actual amounts recorded.
Income Taxes
     We use an asset and liability approach to financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income taxes are provided when tax laws and financial accounting standards differ with respect to the amount of income for a year and the basis of assets and liabilities. A valuation allowance is recorded to reduce the carrying amount of deferred tax assets unless it is more likely than not that such assets will be realized. Income taxes are provided on unremitted earnings from foreign subsidiaries unless such earnings are expected to be indefinitely reinvested. Income taxes have also been provided for potential tax assessments. The related tax accruals are recorded in accordance with FASB Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes — an interpretation of SFAS No. 109” (FIN 48), which we adopted on January 1, 2007. FIN 48 clarifies the accounting and reporting for income taxes recognized in accordance with SFAS No. 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes”, and the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken in income tax returns. The evaluation of a tax position in accordance with FIN 48 is a two-step process. The first step is recognition: We determine whether it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained upon examination, including resolution of any related appeals or litigation processes, based on the technical merits of the position. In evaluating whether a tax position has met the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold, we should presume that the position would be examined by the appropriate taxing authority that would have full knowledge of all relevant information. The second step is measurement: A tax position that meets the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold is measured to determine the amount of benefit to recognize in the financial statements. The tax position is measured at the largest amount of benefit that is greater than 50 percent likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. Differences between tax positions taken in a tax return and amounts recognized in the financial statements result in (1) an increase in a liability for income taxes payable or (2) a reduction of an income tax refund receivable or a reduction in a deferred tax asset or an increase in a deferred tax liability or both (1) and (2).
Recent Developments
     On February 26, 2008, the Company’s board of directors declared a cash dividend for the fourth quarter of 2007 of $0.18 per share of common stock payable to stockholders of record on March 6, 2008. The dividend was paid on March 14, 2008.
     On March 20, 2008, we repurchased in one open market purchase $10.0 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of our 9 3/4% senior discount notes for approximately $9.0 million, including accreted interest of $2.9 million. The transaction was funded with proceeds from our initial public offering.
     On March 27,2008, our Board of Directors approved and recommended to the stockholders for approval at the 2008 annual meeting of stockholders to be held on May 15, 2008 (the “Annual Meeting”), an amendment and restatement of the Cinemark Holdings, Inc. 2006 Long Term Incentive Plan, as amended (the “Restated Incentive Plan). The Restated Incentive Plan amends and restates the Cinemark Holdings, Inc. 2006 Long Term Incentive Plan, as amended (the “2006 Plan”), to (i) increase the number of shares reserved for issuance from 9,097,360 shares of Common Stock to 19,100,000 shares of Common Stock and (ii) permit the Compensation Committee to award participants restricted stock units and performance awards. The right of a participant to exercise or receive a grant of a restricted stock unit or performance award may be subject to the satisfaction of such performance or objective business criteria as determined by the Compensation Committee. With the exception of the changes identified in (i) and (ii) above, the Restated Incentive Plan does not materially differ from the 2006 Plan. The foregoing does not constitute a complete summary of the Restated Incentive Plan and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Restated Incentive Plan to be filed as an appendix to the proxy statement for our Annual Meeting to be mailed to our stockholders within 120 days after December 31, 2007.

  Consolidated. The increase in admissions revenues of $327.2 million was attributable to a 19.3% increase in attendance from 178.3 million patrons for 2006 to 212.7 million patrons for 2007, which contributed $165.0 million, and a 20.0% increase in average ticket price from $4.26 for 2006 to $5.11 for 2007, which contributed $162.2 million, and reflects the full year of operations of the 77 Century theatres acquired during the fourth quarter of 2006. The increase in concession revenues of $140.7 million was attributable to the 19.3% increase in attendance, which contributed $84.5 million, and a 15.2% increase in concession revenues per patron from $2.11 for 2006 to $2.43 for 2007, which contributed $56.2 million, and reflects the full year of operations of the 77 Century theatres acquired during the fourth quarter of 2006. The increase in attendance was attributable to the additional attendance from the 77 Century theatres acquired, the solid slate of films released during 2007 and new theatre openings. The increases in average ticket price and concession revenues per patron were due to the higher ticket price structure at the 77 Century theatres acquired, price increases and favorable exchange rates in certain countries in which we operate. The 6.7% decrease in other revenues was primarily attributable to reduced screen advertising revenues earned under the amended Exhibitor Services Agreement with NCM. See Note 7 to the consolidated financial statements.
  U.S. The increase in admissions revenues of $301.2 million was attributable to a 27.8% increase in attendance from 118.7 million patrons for 2006 to 151.7 million patrons for 2007, which contributed $160.7 million, and a 18.9% increase in average ticket price from $4.87 for 2006 to $5.79 for 2007, which contributed $140.5 million, and reflects the full year of operations of the 77 Century theatres acquired during the fourth quarter of 2006. The increase in concession revenues of $127.0 million was attributable to the 27.8% increase in attendance, which contributed $82.6 million, and an 11.6% increase in concession revenues per patron from $2.51 for 2006 to $2.80 for 2007, which contributed $44.4 million, and reflects the full year of operations of the 77 Century theatres acquired during the fourth quarter of 2006. The increase in attendance was attributable to the additional attendance from the 77 Century theatres acquired, the solid slate of films released during 2007 and new theatre openings. The increases in average ticket price and concession revenues per patron were due to the higher ticket price structure at the 77 Century theatres acquired and price increases. The 23.2% decrease in other revenues was primarily attributable to reduced screen advertising revenues earned under the amended Exhibitor Services Agreement with NCM. See Note 7 to the consolidated financial statements.
  International. The increase in admissions revenues of $26.0 million was attributable to a 2.3% increase in attendance from 59.6 million patrons for 2006 to 61.0 million patrons for 2007, which contributed $4.3 million, and an 11.8% increase in average ticket price from $3.06 for 2006 to $3.42 for 2007, which contributed $21.7 million. The increase in concession revenues of $13.7 million was attributable to the 2.3% increase in attendance, which contributed $1.9 million, and a 14.4% increase in concession revenues per patron from $1.32 for 2006 to $1.51 for 2007, which contributed $11.8 million.

Utilities and other costs increased to $42.3 million for 2007 from $36.5 million for 2006 primarily due to higher utility costs at our existing theatres and new theatre openings.
     General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses increased to $79.5 million for 2007 from $67.8 million for 2006 primarily due to a $7.8 million increase in salaries and wages, a $1.2 million increase in consulting fees, and a $2.5 million increase in service charges related to increased credit card activity, all of which were primarily a result of the 77 Century theatres.
     Termination of Profit Participation Agreement. Upon consummation of our initial public offering on April 24, 2007, we exercised our option to terminate the amended and restated profit participation agreement with our CEO Alan Stock and purchased Mr. Stock’s profit interest in two theatres on May 3, 2007 for a price of $6.9 million pursuant to the terms of the amended and restated profit participation agreement. In addition, we incurred $0.1 million of payroll taxes related to the termination. See Note 23 to our consolidated financial statements.
     Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense, including amortization of favorable leases, was $151.7 million for 2007 compared to $99.5 million for 2006 primarily due to the Century Acquisition and new theatre openings.
     Impairment of Long-Lived Assets. We recorded asset impairment charges on assets held and used of $86.6 million for 2007 compared to $28.5 million for 2006. Impairment charges for 2007 and 2006 included the write-down of theatres to their fair values. Impairment charges for 2007 consisted of $14.2 million of theatre properties, $67.7 million of goodwill associated with theatre properties, and $4.7 million of intangible assets associated with theatre properties. Impairment charges for 2006 consisted of $13.6 million of theatre properties, $13.6 million of goodwill associated with theatre properties and $1.3 million of intangible assets associated with theatre properties. During 2006, we recorded approximately $658.5 million of goodwill as a result of the Century Acquisition. We record goodwill at the theatre level, which results in more volatile impairment charges on an annual basis due to changes in market conditions and box office performance and the resulting impact on individual theatres. Significant judgment is involved in estimating cash flows and fair value. Management’s estimates are based on historical and projected operating performance as well as recent market transactions. See Notes 10 and 11 to our consolidated financial statements.
     (Gain) Loss on Sale of Assets and Other. We recorded a gain on sale of assets and other of $3.0 million during 2007 compared to a loss on the sale of assets and other of $7.6 million during 2006. The gain recorded during 2007 primarily related to the sale of real property associated with one theatre in the U.S. The loss recorded during 2006 primarily related to a loss on the exchange of a theatre in the United States with a third party, lease termination fees and asset write-offs incurred due to theatre closures and the retirement of certain theatre assets that were replaced.
     Interest Expense. Interest costs incurred, including amortization of debt issue costs, was $145.6 million for 2007 compared to $109.3 million for 2006. The increase was primarily due to the financing associated with the Century Acquisition.
     Gain on NCM Transaction. We recorded a gain of $210.8 million on the sale of a portion of our equity investment in NCM in conjunction with the initial public offering of NCM, Inc. during 2007. Our ownership interest in NCM was reduced from approximately 25% to approximately 14% as part of this sale of stock in the offering. See Note 7 to our consolidated financial statements.
     Gain on Fandango Transaction. We recorded a gain of $9.2 million as a result of the sale of our investment in stock of Fandango, Inc. See Note 9 to our consolidated financial statements.
     Loss on Early Retirement of Debt. During 2007, we recorded a loss on early retirement of debt of $13.5 million which was a result of the repurchase of $332.1 million aggregate principal amount of our 9% senior subordinated notes and the repurchase of $69.2 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of our 9 3/4% senior discount notes, all of which resulted in the write-off of unamortized debt issue costs and the payment of premiums, fees and expenses. During 2006, we recorded a loss on early retirement of debt of $8.3 million which was a result of the refinancing associated with the Century Acquisition, the repurchase of $10.0 million aggregate principal amount of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s 9% senior subordinated notes, and the repurchase of $39.8 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of Cinemark, Inc.’s 9 3/4%

senior discount notes, all of which resulted in the write-off of unamortized debt issue costs and the payment of fees and expenses. See Notes 6 and 13 to our consolidated financial statements.
     Distributions from NCM. We recorded distributions received from NCM of $11.5 million during 2007, which were in excess of the carrying value of our investment. See Note 7 to our consolidated financial statements.
     Income Taxes. Income tax expense of $112.0 million was recorded for 2007 compared to $12.7 million recorded for 2006. The effective tax rate of 55.7% for 2007 reflects the impact of our 2007 goodwill impairment charges, which are not deductible for income tax purposes. The effective tax rate in 2007 net of the impact from the goodwill impairment charges would have been approximately 41.7%. The effective tax rate for 2006 reflects the impact of purchase accounting adjustments resulting from the Century Acquisition. See Notes 6 and 20 to our consolidated financial statements.

  Consolidated. The increase in admissions revenues of $119.1 million was attributable to a 7.6% increase in attendance from 165.7 million patrons for 2005 to 178.3 million patrons for 2006, which contributed $57.2 million, and a 10.2% increase in average ticket price from $3.87 for 2005 to $4.26 for 2006, which contributed $61.9 million. This increase included additional admissions revenues for the 77 Century theatres acquired during the fourth quarter of 2006. The increase in concession revenues of $55.7 million was attributable to the 7.6% increase in attendance, which contributed $30.3 million, and a 9.1% increase in concession revenues per patron from $1.93 for 2005 to $2.11 for 2006, which contributed $25.4 million. This increase included additional concession revenues for the 77 Century theatres acquired during the fourth quarter. The increase in attendance was attributable to the additional attendance from the 77 Century theatres acquired, the solid slate of films released during 2006 and new theatre openings. The increases in average ticket price and concession revenues per patron were due to the higher ticket price structure at the 77 Century theatres acquired, price increases and favorable exchange rates in certain countries in which we operate. The 42.5% increase in other revenues was primarily attributable to incremental screen advertising revenues resulting from our participation in the NCM joint venture.
  U.S. The increase in admissions revenues of $105.9 million was attributable to a 12.4% increase in attendance from 105.6 million patrons for 2005 to 118.7 million patrons for 2006, which contributed $58.7 million, and a 8.9% increase in average ticket price from $4.47 for 2005 to $4.87 for 2006, which contributed $47.2 million. This increase included additional admissions revenues for the 77 Century theatres acquired during the fourth quarter of 2006. The increase in concession revenues of $48.7 million was attributable to the 12.4% increase in attendance, which contributed $31.0 million, and a 6.3% increase in concession revenues per patron from $2.36 for 2005 to $2.51 for 2006, which contributed $17.7 million. This increase included additional concession revenues for the 77 Century theatres acquired during the fourth quarter. The increase in attendance was attributable to additional attendance from the 77 Century theatres acquired, the solid slate of films released during 2006 and new theatre openings. The increases in average ticket price and concession revenues per patron were due to the higher ticket price structure at

    the 77 Century theatres acquired and price increases. The 66.9% increase in other revenues was primarily attributable to incremental screen advertising revenues resulting from our participation in the joint venture with NCM.
  International. The increase in admissions revenues of $13.2 million was attributable to an 8.8% increase in average ticket price from $2.82 for 2005 to $3.06 for 2006, which contributed $14.7 million, partially offset by a 1.0% decrease in attendance, which contributed $(1.5) million. The decrease in attendance was due to increased competition in certain markets. The increase in concession revenues of $7.0 million was attributable to a 10.9% increase in concession revenues per patron from $1.19 for 2005 to $1.32 for 2006, which contributed $7.7 million, partially offset by the 1.0% decrease in attendance, which contributed $(0.7) million. The increases in average ticket price and concession revenues per patron were due to price increases and favorable exchange rates in certain countries in which we operate.
     Theatre Operating Costs (excludes depreciation and amortization expense). Theatre operating costs were $889.8 million, or 72.9% of revenues, for 2006 compared to $764.0 million, or 74.9% of revenues, for 2005. The decrease, as a percentage of revenues, was primarily due to the increase in revenues and the fixed nature of some of our theatre operating costs, such as components of salaries and wages, facility lease expense, and utilities and other costs. The table below, presented by reportable operating segment, summarizes our year-over-year theatre operating costs.

  Consolidated. Film rentals and advertising costs were $406.0 million, or 53.4% of admissions revenues, for 2006 compared to $347.7 million, or 54.2% of admissions revenues, for 2005. The increase in film rentals and advertising costs for 2006 of $58.3 million is due to increased admissions revenues, which contributed $65.7 million, and a decrease in our film rental and advertising rate, which contributed $(7.4) million. The decrease in film rentals and advertising costs as a percentage of admissions revenues was due to a more favorable mix of films resulting in lower average film rental rates in 2006 compared with 2005 which had certain blockbuster films with higher than average film rental rates. Concession supplies expense was $59.0 million, or 15.7% of concession revenues, for 2006 compared to $52.5 million, or 16.4% of concession revenues, for 2005. The increase in concession supplies expense of $6.5 million is primarily due to increased concession revenues, which contributed $8.5 million, and a decrease in our concession supplies rate, which contributed $(2.0) million. The decrease in concession supplies expense as a percentage of revenues was primarily due to concession sales price increases.
 
    Salaries and wages increased to $118.6 million for 2006 from $101.5 million for 2005 primarily due to the additional salaries and wages related to the 77 Century theatres, the increase in attendance and new theatre openings. Facility lease expense increased to $161.4 million for 2006 from $138.5 million for 2005 primarily due to the additional expense related to the 77 Century theatres, increased percentage rent related to the increased revenues and new theatre openings. Utilities and other costs increased to $144.8 million for 2006 from $123.8 million for 2005 primarily due to the additional costs related to the 77 Century theatres, higher utility and janitorial supplies costs at our existing theatres and new theatre openings.
  U.S. Film rentals and advertising costs were $315.4 million, or 54.6% of admissions revenues, for 2006 compared to $263.7 million, or 55.9% of admissions revenues, for 2005. The increase in film rentals and advertising costs for 2006 of $51.7 million is due to increased admissions revenues, which contributed $59.2 million, and a decrease in our film rentals and advertising rate, which contributed $(7.5) million. The decrease in film rentals and advertising costs as a percentage of admissions revenues was due to a more favorable mix of films resulting in lower average film rental rates in 2006 compared with 2005 which had certain blockbuster films with higher than average film rental rates. Concession supplies expense was $38.7 million, or 13.0% of concession revenues, for 2006 compared to

    $34.5 million, or 13.9% of concession revenues, for 2005. The increase in concession supplies expense of $4.2 million is due to increased concession revenues, which contributed $6.7 million, and a decrease in our concession supplies rate, which contributed $(2.5) million. The decrease in concession supplies expense as a percentage of revenues was primarily due to concession sales price increases.
    Salaries and wages increased to $95.8 million for 2006 from $80.8 million for 2005 primarily due to the additional salaries and wages related to the 77 Century theatres, the increase in attendance and new theatre openings. Facility lease expense increased to $117.0 million for 2006 from $97.7 million for 2005 primarily due to the additional expense related to the 77 Century theatres, increased percentage rent related to increased revenues and new theatre openings. Utilities and other costs increased to $108.3 million for 2006 from $90.7 million for 2005 primarily due to the additional costs related to the 77 Century theatres, higher utility and janitorial supplies costs at our existing theatres and new theatre openings.
 
  International. Film rentals and advertising costs were $90.6 million, or 49.7% of admissions revenues, for 2006 compared to $84.0 million, or 49.6% of admissions revenues, for 2005. The increase in film rentals and advertising costs for 2006 is primarily due to increased admissions revenues. Concession supplies expense was $20.3 million, or 25.9% of concession revenues, for 2006 compared to $18.0 million, or 25.2% of concession revenues, for 2005. The increase in concession supplies expense of $2.3 million is due to increased concession revenues, which contributed $1.8 million, and an increase in our concession supplies rate, which contributed $0.5 million.
 
    Salaries and wages increased to $22.8 million for 2006 from $20.7 million for 2005 primarily due to new theatre openings. Facility lease expense increased to $44.4 million for 2006 from $40.8 million for 2005 primarily due to increased percentage rent related to increased revenues and new theatre openings. Utilities and other costs increased to $36.5 million for 2006 from $33.1 million for 2005 primarily due to higher utility and janitorial supplies costs at our existing theatres and new theatre openings.
     General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses increased to $67.8 million for 2006 from $50.9 million for 2005 primarily due to a $3.7 million increase due to incentive compensation expense, a $3.0 million increase in salaries and wages, a $2.9 million increase to stock option compensation expense related to the adoption of SFAS No. 123 (R), a $1.3 million increase in service charges related to increased credit card activity, and additional overhead costs associated with the integration of Century.
     Depreciation and Amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense, including amortization of favorable leases, was $99.5 million for 2006 compared to $86.1 million for 2005 primarily due to the Century Acquisition and new theatre openings.
     Impairment of Long-Lived Assets. We recorded asset impairment charges on assets held and used of $28.5 million for 2006 compared to $51.7 million for 2005. Impairment charges for 2006 and 2005 included the write-down of theatres to their fair values. Impairment charges for 2006 consisted of $13.6 million of theatre properties, $13.6 million of goodwill associated with theatre properties and $1.3 million of intangible assets associated with theatre properties. Impairment charges for 2005 consisted of $6.4 million of theatre properties and $45.3 million of goodwill associated with theatre properties. We record goodwill at the theatre level, which results in more volatile impairment charges on an annual basis due to changes in market conditions and box office performance and the resulting impact on individual theatres. Significant judgment is involved in estimating cash flows and fair value. Management’s estimates are based on historical and projected operating performance as well as recent market transactions. See Notes 10 and 11 to our consolidated financial statements.
     Loss on Sale of Assets and Other. We recorded a loss on sale of assets and other of $7.6 million during 2006 compared to $4.4 million during 2005. The loss recorded during 2006 primarily related to a loss on the exchange of a theatre in the United States with a third party, lease termination fees and asset write-offs incurred due to theatre closures and the replacement of certain theatre assets. The loss recorded during 2005 was primarily due to property damages sustained at three of our theatres due to hurricanes along the Gulf of Mexico coast and the write-off of some theatre equipment that was replaced.
     Interest Expense. Interest costs incurred, including amortization of debt issue costs, was $109.3 million for 2006 compared to $84.1 million for 2005. The increase was primarily due to the financing associated with the Century Acquisition.

Table of Contents

     Loss on Early Retirement of Debt. During 2006, we recorded a loss on early retirement of debt of $8.3 million which was a result of the refinancing associated with the Century Acquisition, the repurchase of $10.0 million aggregate principal amount of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s 9% senior subordinated notes, and the repurchase of $39.8 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of Cinemark, Inc.’s 9 3/4% senior discount notes, all of which resulted in the write-off of unamortized debt issue costs and the payment of fees and expenses. See Notes 6 and 13 to our consolidated financial statements.
     Income Taxes. Income tax expense of $12.7 million was recorded for 2006 compared to $9.4 million recorded for 2005. The effective tax rate for 2006 reflects the impact of purchase accounting adjustments resulting from the Century Acquisition. See Notes 6 and 20 to our consolidated financial statements.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Operating Activities
     We primarily collect our revenues in cash, mainly through box office receipts and the sale of concession supplies. In addition, a majority of our theatres provide the patron a choice of using a credit card, in place of cash, which we convert to cash over a range from one to six days. Because our revenues are received in cash prior to the payment of related expenses, we have an operating “float” and historically have not required traditional working capital financing. Cash provided by operating activities amounted to $165.3 million, $155.7 million and $276.0 million for the years ended December 31, 2005, 2006 and 2007, respectively. The increase in cash provided by operating activities for the year ended December 31, 2007 is primarily due to the proceeds received from NCM for the modification of our Exhibitor Services Agreement with NCM. See Note 7 to our consolidated financial statements for further discussion of the NCM Transaction.
     Since the issuance of the 9 3/4% senior discount notes on March 31, 2004, interest has accreted rather than been paid in cash, which has benefited our operating cash flows for the periods presented. Interest will be paid in cash commencing September 15, 2009, at which time our operating cash flows will be impacted by these cash payments.
Investing Activities
     Our investing activities have been principally related to the development and acquisition of additional theatres. New theatre openings and acquisitions historically have been financed with internally generated cash and by debt financing, including borrowings under our senior secured credit facility. Cash provided by (used for) investing activities amounted to $(81.6) million, $(631.7) million and $93.2 million for the years ended December 31, 2005, 2006 and 2007, respectively. The increase in cash used for investing activities for the year ended December 31, 2006 is primarily due to the cash portion of the Century Acquisition purchase price (see Note 6 to our consolidated financial statements) and increased capital expenditures. The increase in cash provided by investing activities for the year ended December 31, 2007 is primarily due to the proceeds received from NCM for the sale of a portion of our equity investment in NCM in conjunction with NCM Inc.’s initial public offering and the sale of our investment in stock of Fandango, Inc., partially offset by increased capital expenditures. See Notes 7 and 9 to our consolidated financial statements for further discussion of the NCM Transaction and the Fandango Transaction, respectively.
     Capital expenditures for the years ended December 31, 2005, 2006 and 2007 were as follows (in millions):
                         
    New   Existing    
Period   Theatres   Theatres   Total
Year Ended December 31, 2005
  $ 50.3     $ 25.3     $ 75.6  
Year Ended December 31, 2006
  $ 68.8     $ 38.3     $ 107.1  
Year Ended December 31, 2007
  $ 113.3     $ 33.0     $ 146.3  
     During October 2006, we completed the Century Acquisition for a purchase price of approximately $681.2 million and the assumption of approximately $360.0 million of debt of Century. Of the total purchase price, $150.0 million consisted of the issuance of shares of Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s common stock. We also incurred approximately $7.4 million in transaction costs. See Note 6 to our consolidated financial statements for further discussion of this acquisition.
     We continue to expand our U.S. theatre circuit. During the year ended December 31, 2007, we opened 13 new theatres with 201 screens, closed five theatres with 36 screens and sold two theatres with 34 screens. At December 31,

Table of Contents

2007, our total domestic screen count was 3,654 screens (12 of which are in Canada). At December 31, 2007, we had signed commitments to open ten new theatres with 128 screens in domestic markets during 2008 and open five new theatres with 78 screens subsequent to 2008. We estimate the remaining capital expenditures for the development of all of the 206 domestic screens will be approximately $94.7 million. Actual expenditures for continued theatre development and acquisitions are subject to change based upon the availability of attractive opportunities.
     We also continue to expand our international theatre circuit. We opened seven new theatres with 56 screens and closed one theatre with ten screens during the year ended December 31, 2007, bringing our total international screen count to 1,011 screens. At December 31, 2007, we had signed commitments to open three new theatres with 19 screens in international markets during 2008. We estimate the remaining capital expenditures for the development of these 19 international screens will be approximately $10.8 million. Actual expenditures for continued theatre development and acquisitions are subject to change based upon the availability of attractive opportunities.
     We plan to fund capital expenditures for our continued development with cash flow from operations, borrowings under our senior secured credit facility, subordinated note borrowings, proceeds from sale leaseback transactions and/or sales of excess real estate.
     During June 2007, we invested $1.5 million in a joint venture with AMC and Regal called Digital Cinema Implementation Partners LLC (“DCIP”). We are accounting for our investment in DCIP under the equity method of accounting. See Note 8 to our consolidated financial statements.
Financing Activities
     Cash provided by (used for) financing activities was $(3.8) million, $440.0 million and $(183.7) million during the years ended December 31, 2005, 2006 and 2007, respectively. The increase in cash provided by financing activities for the year ended December 31, 2006 was primarily due to the cash received under our senior secured credit facility partially offset by the pay-off of long-term debt assumed in the Century Acquisition and the pay-off of our former senior secured credit facility. The increase in cash used for financing activities for the year ended December 31, 2007 was primarily due to the repurchase of $332.1 million aggregate principal amount of our 9% senior subordinated notes and $69.2 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of our 9 3/4% senior discount notes, which were partially offset by the net proceeds from our initial public offering of approximately $245.9 million.
     In August 2007, we initiated a quarterly dividend policy. Consistent with the disclosures in our 424(b)(1) prospectus, the dividend for the second quarter of 2007 was based on a dividend rate of $0.18 per share of common stock, prorated based on the April 27, 2007 closing of our initial public offering. Based on such proration, our board of directors declared a cash dividend for the second quarter of 2007 of $0.13 per share of common stock payable to stockholders of record on September 4, 2007, which was paid with available cash on September 18, 2007. The dividend for the third quarter was the first dividend paid by us reflecting a full quarter since our initial public offering and was paid in the amount of $0.18 per share of common stock on December 18, 2007. We paid dividends of approximately $33.1 million in the aggregate during 2007. The dividend for the fourth quarter of 2007 was paid in the amount of $0.18 per share of common stock on March 14, 2008.
     On March 6, 2007, we commenced an offer to purchase for cash, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in an Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, any and all of our 9% senior subordinated notes, of which $332.2 million aggregate principal amount remained outstanding. In connection with the tender offer, we solicited consents for certain proposed amendments to the indenture to remove substantially all restrictive covenants and certain events of default provisions. On March 20, 2007, the early settlement date, approximately $332.0 million aggregate principal amount of the 9% senior subordinated notes were tendered and repurchased by us for approximately $360.2 million including accrued interest and premiums paid. We funded the repurchase with the net proceeds received from the NCM Transaction (see Note 7). On March 20, 2007, we and the Bank of New York Trust Company, N.A., as trustee to the Indenture dated February 11, 2003, executed the Fourth Supplemental Indenture. The Fourth Supplemental Indenture became effective on March 20, 2007 and it amends the Indenture by eliminating substantially all restrictive covenants and certain events of default provisions. On April 3, 2007, we repurchased an additional $0.1 million aggregate principal amount of the 9% senior subordinated notes tendered after the early settlement date.
     On April 24, 2007, we completed our initial public offering. We sold 13,888,889 shares of our common stock and selling stockholders sold an additional 14,111,111 shares of common stock at a price of $17.955 ($19 per share less underwriting discounts). The net proceeds (before expenses) we received were $249.4 million and we paid approximately $3.5 million in legal, accounting and other fees. The selling stockholders granted the underwriters a 30-day option to

purchase up to an additional 2,800,000 shares of our common stock at a price of $17.955 ($19 per share less underwriting discounts). On May 21, 2007, the underwriters purchased an additional 269,100 shares from the selling stockholders pursuant to this option. We did not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares by the selling stockholders. We have utilized a portion of the net proceeds to repurchase a portion of our 9 3/4% senior discount notes and we expect to continue to use the remaining net proceeds from the offering to repurchase a portion of the remaining outstanding 9 3/4% senior discount notes or repay debt outstanding under the senior secured credit facility. The 9 3/4% senior discount notes are not currently subject to repurchase at our option. Accordingly, if we are unable to repurchase the 9 3/4% senior discount notes at acceptable prices, we expect to use the net proceeds to repay term loan debt outstanding under the senior secured credit facility. We have significant flexibility in applying the net proceeds from our initial public offering. We have invested the proceeds in short-term, investment-grade marketable securities or money market obligations.
     During July and August 2007, we repurchased in six open market purchases a total of $47.0 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of our 9 3/4% senior discount notes for approximately $42.8 million, including accreted interest of $10.9 million and a cash premium of $2.5 million. During November 2007, we repurchased in one open market purchase $22.2 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of our 9 3/4% senior discount notes for approximately $20.9 million, including accreted interest of $5.7 million and a cash premium of $1.5 million. We funded the transactions with proceeds from our initial public offering. As of December 31, 2007, we had outstanding approximately $466.4 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of our 9 3/4% senior discount notes.
     We may from time to time, subject to compliance with our debt instruments, purchase on the open market our debt securities depending upon the availability and prices of such securities. Long-term debt consisted of the following as of December 31, 2006 and 2007:

     Cinemark, Inc. 9 3/4%  Senior Discount Notes
     On March 31, 2004, in connection with the MDP merger, Cinemark, Inc. issued approximately $577.2 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of 9 3/4% senior discount notes due 2014. Interest on the notes accretes until March 15, 2009 up to their aggregate principal amount. Cash interest will accrue and be payable semi-annually in arrears on March 15 and September 15, commencing on September 15, 2009. Due to Cinemark, Inc.’s holding company status, payments of principal and interest under these notes will be dependent on loans, dividends and other payments from its subsidiaries. Cinemark, Inc. may redeem all or part of the 9 3/4% senior discount notes on or after March 15, 2009.
     On September 22, 2005, Cinemark, Inc. repurchased $1.8 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of its 9 3/4% senior discount notes as part of an open market purchase for approximately $1.3 million, including accreted interest. During May 2006, as part of four open market purchases, Cinemark, Inc. repurchased $39.8 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of its 9 3/4% senior discount notes for approximately $31.7 million, including accreted interest of $5.4 million and a cash premium of $1.4 million. Cinemark, Inc. funded these transactions with available cash from its operations.
     During July and August 2007, Cinemark, Inc. repurchased in six open market purchases a total of $47.0 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of its 9 3/4% senior discount notes for approximately $42.8 million, including accreted interest of $10.9 million and a cash premium of $2.5 million. During November 2007, as part of an open market purchase, Cinemark, Inc. repurchased $22.2 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of its 9 3/4% senior discount notes for approximately $20.9 million, including accreted interest of $5.7 million and a cash premium of $1.5 million. We funded these transactions with proceeds from our initial public offering.
     As of December 31, 2007, the accreted principal balance of the notes was approximately $415.8 million and the aggregate principal amount at maturity was approximately $466.4 million.
     The indenture governing the 9 3/4%  senior discount notes contains covenants that limit, among other things, dividends, transactions with affiliates, investments, sales of assets, mergers, repurchases of our capital stock, liens and additional indebtedness. The dividend restriction contained in the indenture prevents Cinemark, Inc. from paying a dividend or otherwise distributing cash to its stockholders unless (1) it is not in default, and the distribution would not cause it to be in default, under the indenture; (2) it would be able to incur at least $1.00 more of indebtedness without the ratio of its consolidated cash flow to its fixed charges (each as defined in the indenture, and calculated on a pro forma

basis for the most recently ended four full fiscal quarters for which internal financial statements are available, using certain assumptions and modifications specified in the indenture, and including the additional indebtedness then being incurred) falling below two to one (the “senior notes debt incurrence ratio test”); and (3) the aggregate amount of distributions made since March 31, 2004, including the distribution proposed, is less than the sum of (a) half of its consolidated net income (as defined in the indenture) since February 11, 2003, (b) the net proceeds to it from the issuance of stock since April 2, 2004, and (c) certain other amounts specified in the indenture, subject to certain adjustments specified in the indenture. The dividend restriction is subject to certain exceptions specified in the indenture.
     Upon certain specified types of change of control of Cinemark, Inc., Cinemark, Inc. would be required under the indenture to make an offer to repurchase all of the 9 3/4% senior discount notes at a price equal to 101% of the accreted value of the notes plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, through the date of repurchase.
     Senior Secured Credit Facility
     On October 5, 2006, in connection with the Century Acquisition, Cinemark USA, Inc., entered into a senior secured credit facility. The senior secured credit facility provides for a seven year term loan of $1.12 billion and a $150 million revolving credit line that matures in six years unless Cinemark USA, Inc.’s 9% senior subordinated notes have not been refinanced by August 1, 2012 with indebtedness that matures no earlier than seven and one-half years after the closing date of the senior secured credit facility, in which case the maturity date of the revolving credit line becomes August 1, 2012. The net proceeds of the term loan were used to finance a portion of the $531.2 million cash portion of the Century Acquisition, repay in full the $253.5 million outstanding under the former senior secured credit facility, repay approximately $360.0 million of existing indebtedness of Century and to pay for related fees and expenses. The revolving credit line was left undrawn at closing. The revolving credit line is used for general corporate purposes.
     At December 31, 2007, there was $1,101.7 million outstanding under the term loan and no borrowings outstanding under the revolving credit line. Approximately $149.9 million was available for borrowing under the revolving credit line, giving effect to a $0.1 million letter of credit outstanding. The average interest rate on outstanding borrowings under the senior secured credit facility at December 31, 2007 was 6.7% per annum.
     Under the term loan, principal payments of $2.8 million are due each calendar quarter beginning December 1, 2006 through September 30, 2012 and increase to $263.2 million each calendar quarter from December 31, 2012 to maturity at October 5, 2013. Prior to the amendment to the senior secured credit facility discussed below, the term loan accrued interest, at Cinemark USA, Inc.’s option, at: (A) the base rate equal to the higher of (1) the prime lending rate as set forth on the British Banking Association Telerate page 5 or (2) the federal funds effective rate from time to time plus 0.50%, plus a margin that ranges from 0.75% to 1.00% per annum, or (B) a “eurodollar rate” plus a margin that ranges from 1.75% to 2.00% per annum, in each case as adjusted pursuant to Cinemark USA, Inc.’s corporate credit rating. Borrowings under the revolving credit line bear interest, at Cinemark USA, Inc.’s option, at: (A) a base rate equal to the higher of (1) the prime lending rate as set forth on the British Banking Association Telerate page 5 and (2) the federal funds effective rate from time to time plus 0.50%, plus a margin that ranges from 0.50% to 1.00% per annum, or (B) a “eurodollar rate” plus a margin that ranges from 1.50% to 2.00% per annum, in each case as adjusted pursuant to Cinemark USA, Inc.’s consolidated net senior secured leverage ratio as defined in the credit agreement. Cinemark USA, Inc. is required to pay a commitment fee calculated at the rate of 0.50% per annum on the average daily unused portion of the new revolving credit line, payable quarterly in arrears, which rate decreases to 0.375% per annum for any fiscal quarter in which Cinemark USA, Inc.’s consolidated net senior secured leverage ratio on the last day of such fiscal quarter is less than 2.25 to 1.0.
     On March 14, 2007, Cinemark USA, Inc. amended its senior secured credit facility to, among other things, modify the interest rate on the term loans under the senior secured credit facility, modify certain prepayment terms and covenants, and facilitate the tender offer for the 9% senior subordinated notes. The term loans now accrue interest, at Cinemark USA, Inc.’s option, at: (A) the base rate equal to the higher of (1) the prime lending rate as set forth on the British Banking Association Telerate page 5, or (2) the federal funds effective rate from time to time plus 0.50%, plus a margin that ranges from 0.50% to 0.75% per annum, or (B) a “eurodollar rate” plus a margin that ranges from 1.50% to 1.75%, per annum. In each case, the margin is a function of the corporate credit rating applicable to the borrower. The interest rate on the revolving credit line was not amended. Additionally, the amendment removed any obligation to prepay amounts outstanding under the senior secured credit facility in an amount equal to the amount of the net cash proceeds received from the NCM Transaction or from excess cash flows, and imposed a 1% prepayment premium for one year on certain prepayments of the term loans.

Table of Contents

     Cinemark USA, Inc.’s obligations under the senior secured credit facility are guaranteed by Cinemark Holdings, Inc., Cinemark, Inc., CNMK Holding, Inc., and certain of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s domestic subsidiaries and are secured by mortgages on certain fee and leasehold properties and security interests in substantially all of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s and the guarantors’ personal property, including, without limitation, pledges of all of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s capital stock, all of the capital stock of Cinemark, Inc., CNMK Holding, Inc. and certain of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s domestic subsidiaries and 65% of the voting stock of certain of its foreign subsidiaries.
     The senior secured credit facility contains usual and customary negative covenants for agreements of this type, including, but not limited to, restrictions on Cinemark USA, Inc.’s ability, and in certain instances, its subsidiaries’ and Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s, Cinemark, Inc.’s and CNMK Holding, Inc.’s ability, to consolidate or merge or liquidate, wind up or dissolve; substantially change the nature of its business; sell, transfer or dispose of assets; create or incur indebtedness; create liens; pay dividends, repurchase stock and voluntarily repurchase or redeem the 9 3/4% senior discount notes; and make capital expenditures and investments. The senior secured credit facility also requires Cinemark USA, Inc. to satisfy a consolidated net senior secured leverage ratio covenant as determined in accordance with the senior secured credit facility. The dividend restriction contained in the senior secured credit facility prevents us and any of our subsidiaries from paying a dividend or otherwise distributing cash to its stockholders unless (1) we are not in default, and the distribution would not cause us to be in default, under the senior secured credit facility; and (2) the aggregate amount of certain dividends, distributions, investments, redemptions and capital expenditures made since October 5, 2006, including the distribution currently proposed, is less than the sum of (a) the aggregate amount of cash and cash equivalents received by Cinemark Holdings, Inc. or Cinemark USA, Inc. as common equity since October 5, 2006, (b) Cinemark USA, Inc.’s consolidated EBITDA minus 1.75 times its consolidated interest expense, each as defined in the senior secured credit facility, since October 1, 2006, (c) $150 million and (d) certain other amounts specified in the senior secured credit facility, subject to certain adjustments specified in the senior secured credit facility. The dividend restriction is subject to certain exceptions specified in the senior secured credit facility.
     The senior secured credit facility also includes customary events of default, including, among other things, payment default, covenant default, breach of representation or warranty, bankruptcy, cross-default, material ERISA events, certain types of change of control, material money judgments and failure to maintain subsidiary guarantees. If an event of default occurs, all commitments under the senior secured credit facility may be terminated and all obligations under the senior secured credit facility could be accelerated by the lenders, causing all loans outstanding (including accrued interest and fees payable thereunder) to be declared immediately due and payable.
     During March 2007, we entered into two interest rate swap agreements with effective dates of August 13, 2007 and terms of five years each. The interest rate swaps were designated to hedge approximately $500.0 million of our variable rate debt obligations. Under the terms of the interest rate swap agreements, we pay fixed rates of 4.918% and 4.922% on $375.0 million and $125.0 million, respectively, of variable rate debt and receive interest at a variable rate based on the 3-month LIBOR. The 3-month LIBOR rate on each reset date determines the variable portion of the interest rate-swaps for the three-month period following the reset date. No premium or discount was incurred upon us entering into the interest rate swaps because the pay and receive rates on the interest rate swaps represented prevailing rates for each counterparty at the time the interest rate swaps were consummated. The interest rate swaps qualify for cash flow hedge accounting treatment in accordance with SFAS No. 133, “Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities,” and as such, we have effectively hedged our exposure to variability in the future cash flows attributable to the 3-month LIBOR on $500.0 million of variable rate debt. The change in the fair value of the interest rate swaps is recorded on our consolidated balance sheet as an asset or liability with the effective portion of the interest rate swaps’ gains or losses reported as a component of other comprehensive income and the ineffective portion reported in earnings. At December 31, 2007, the estimated aggregate fair value of the interest rate swaps was a liability of approximately $18.4 million.
     Cinemark USA, Inc. 9% Senior Subordinated Notes
     On February 11, 2003, Cinemark USA, Inc. issued $150 million aggregate principal amount of 9% senior subordinated notes due 2013 and on May 7, 2003, Cinemark USA, Inc. issued an additional $210 million aggregate principal amount of 9% senior subordinated notes due 2013, collectively referred to as the 9% senior subordinated notes. Interest is payable on February 1 and August 1 of each year.
     On April 6, 2004, as a result of the MDP Merger and in accordance with the terms of the indenture governing the 9% senior subordinated notes, Cinemark USA, Inc. made a change of control offer to repurchase the 9% senior

Table of Contents

subordinated notes at a purchase price of 101% of the aggregate principal amount. Approximately $17.8 million aggregate principal amount of the 9% senior subordinated notes were tendered. The payment of the change of control price was funded with available cash by Cinemark USA, Inc. on June 1, 2004.
     During May 2006, as part of three open market purchases, Cinemark USA, Inc. repurchased $10.0 million aggregate principal amount of its 9% senior subordinated notes for approximately $11.0 million, including accrued and unpaid interest. The transactions were funded by Cinemark USA, Inc. with available cash from operations.
     On March 6, 2007, Cinemark USA, Inc. commenced an offer to purchase for cash any and all of its then outstanding $332.2 million aggregate principal amount of 9% senior subordinated notes. In connection with the tender offer, Cinemark USA, Inc. solicited consents for certain proposed amendments to the indenture to remove substantially all restrictive covenants and certain events of default provisions. On March 20, 2007, the early settlement date, Cinemark USA, Inc. repurchased $332.0 million aggregate principal amount of 9% senior subordinated notes and executed a supplemental indenture removing substantially all of the restrictive covenants and certain events of default. Cinemark USA, Inc. used the proceeds from the NCM Transaction and cash on hand to purchase the 9% senior subordinated notes tendered pursuant to the tender offer and consent solicitation. On March 20, 2007, we and the Bank of New York Trust Company, N.A., as trustee to the Indenture dated February 11, 2003, executed the Fourth Supplemental Indenture. The Fourth Supplemental Indenture became effective on March 20, 2007 and it amends the Indenture by eliminating substantially all restrictive covenants and certain events of default provisions. On April 3, 2007, Cinemark USA, Inc. repurchased an additional $0.1 million aggregate principal amount of the 9% senior subordinated notes tendered after the early settlement date.
     As of December 31, 2007, Cinemark USA, Inc. had outstanding approximately $0.2 million aggregate principal amount of 9% senior subordinated notes. Cinemark USA, Inc. may redeem the remaining 9% senior subordinated notes on or after February 1, 2008.
Former Senior Secured Credit Facility
     On April 2, 2004, Cinemark USA, Inc. amended its then existing senior secured credit facility in connection with the MDP Merger. The former senior secured credit facility provided for a $260 million seven year term loan and a $100 million six and one-half year revolving credit line. The net proceeds from the former senior secured credit facility were used to repay the term loan under its then existing senior secured credit facility of approximately $163.8 million and to redeem the approximately $94.2 million aggregate principal amount of its then outstanding $105.0 million aggregate principal amount 8 1/2% senior subordinated notes due 2008 that were tendered pursuant to the tender offer.
     On October 5, 2006, in connection with the Century Acquisition, the $253.5 million outstanding under the former senior secured credit facility was repaid in full with a portion of the proceeds from the senior secured credit facility.
Covenant Compliance
     The indenture governing the 9 3/4% senior discount notes requires us to have a fixed charge coverage ratio (as determined under the indenture) of at least 2.0 to 1.0 in order to incur additional indebtedness, issue preferred stock or make certain restricted payments, including dividends to our parent. Fixed charge coverage ratio is defined as the ratio of our consolidated cash flow to our fixed charges for the four most recent fiscal quarters, giving pro forma effect to certain events as specified in the indenture. Fixed charges is defined as our consolidated interest expense, subject to certain adjustments as provided in the indenture. Consolidated cash flow as defined in the indenture is substantially consistent with our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA below. Because our failure to meet the fixed charge coverage ratio described above could restrict our ability to incur debt or make dividend payments, management believes that the indenture governing the 9 3/4% senior discount notes and these covenants and Adjusted EBITDA are material to us. As of December 31, 2007, fixed charge coverage ratio under the indenture was in excess of the 2.0 to 1.0 requirement described above.
     Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin should not be construed as alternatives to net income or operating income as indicators of operating performance or as alternatives to cash flow provided by operating activities as measures of liquidity (as determined in accordance with GAAP). Furthermore, Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Ratings
     We are rated by nationally recognized rating agencies. The significance of individual ratings varies from agency to agency. However, companies’ assigned ratings at the top end of the range have, in the opinion of certain rating agencies, the strongest capacity for repayment of debt or payment of claims, while companies at the bottom end of the range have the weakest capability.

New Accounting Pronouncements
     In September 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued SFAS No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements.” Among other requirements, this statement defines fair value, establishes a framework for using fair value to measure assets and liabilities, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. The statement applies whenever other statements require or permit assets or liabilities to be measured at fair value. SFAS No. 157 is effective for us beginning January 1, 2008 (January 1, 2009 for nonfinancial assets and liabilities). Adoption of this statement is not expected to have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements.
     In February 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 159, “The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities”. This statement provides companies with an option to report selected financial assets and liabilities at fair

40


Table of Contents

value that are not required to be measured at fair value. SFAS No. 159 establishes presentation and disclosure requirements designed to facilitate comparisons between companies that choose different measurement attributes for similar types of assets and liabilities. We have not elected to measure eligible items at fair value upon initial adoption. SFAS No. 159 is effective for us beginning January 1, 2009. Adoption of this statement is not expected to have a significant impact on our consolidated financial statements.
     In December 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 141(R), “Business Combinations”. This statement requires all business combinations completed after the effective date to be accounted for by applying the acquisition method (previously referred to as the purchase method); expands the definition of transactions and events that qualify as business combinations; requires that the acquired assets and liabilities, including contingencies, be recorded at the fair value determined on the acquisition date and changes thereafter reflected in income, not goodwill; changes the recognition timing for restructuring costs; and requires acquisition costs to be expensed as incurred. Adoption of SFAS No. 141(R) is required for business combinations that occur after December 15, 2008. Early adoption and retroactive application of SFAS No. 141(R) to fiscal years preceding the effective date is not permitted. We are evaluating the adoption of SFAS No. 141(R) and its impact on our consolidated financial statements.
     In December 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 160, “Noncontrolling Interest in Consolidated Financial Statements”. This statement establishes new accounting and reporting standards for the noncontrolling interest in a subsidiary and for the deconsolidation of a subsidiary. Specifically, this statement requires the recognition of a noncontrolling interest (minority interest) as equity in the consolidated financial statements and separate from the parent’s equity. The amount of net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest will be included in consolidated net income on the face of the income statement. SFAS No. 160 clarifies that changes in a parent’s ownership interest in a subsidiary that do not result in deconsolidation are equity transactions if the parent retains its controlling financial interest. In addition, this statement requires that a parent recognize a gain or loss in net income when a subsidiary is deconsolidated. Such gain or loss will be measured using the fair value of the noncontrolling equity investment on the deconsolidation date. SFAS No. 160 also includes expanded disclosure requirements regarding the interests of the parent and its noncontrolling interest. SFAS No. 160 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning on or after December 15, 2008. Earlier adoption is prohibited. We are evaluating the adoption of SFAS No. 160 and its impact on our consolidated financial statements.
Seasonality
     Our revenues have historically been seasonal, coinciding with the timing of releases of motion pictures by the major distributors. Generally, the most successful motion pictures have been released during the summer, extending from May to mid-August, and during the holiday season, extending from Thanksgiving through year-end. The unexpected emergence of a hit film during other periods can alter this seasonality trend. The timing of such film releases can have a significant effect on our results of operations, and the results of one quarter are not necessarily indicative of results for the next quarter or for the same period in the following year.
Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
     We have exposure to financial market risks, including changes in interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates and other relevant market prices.
Interest Rate Risk
     We are currently party to variable rate debt facilities. An increase or decrease in interest rates would affect interest costs relating to our variable rate debt facilities. At December 31, 2007, there was an aggregate of approximately $607.8 million of variable rate debt outstanding under these facilities (net of $500.0 million of debt subject to the interest rate swaps discussed below). Based on the interest rate levels in effect on the variable rate debt outstanding at December 31, 2007, a 100 basis point increase in market interest rates would increase our annual interest expense by approximately $6.1 million.
     During March 2007, we entered into two interest rate swap agreements with effective dates of August 13, 2007 and terms of five years each. The interest rate swaps were designated to hedge approximately $500.0 million of our variable rate debt obligations. Under the terms of the interest rate swap agreements, we pay fixed rates of 4.918% and 4.922% on $375.0 million and $125.0 million, respectively, of variable rate debt and receive interest at a variable rate based on the 3-month LIBOR. The 3-month LIBOR rate on each reset date determines the variable portion of the interest rate-swaps for

41


Table of Contents

the three-month period following the reset date. No premium or discount was incurred upon us entering into the interest rate swaps because the pay and receive rates on the interest rate swaps represented prevailing rates for each counterparty at the time the interest rate swaps were consummated. The interest rate swaps qualify for cash flow hedge accounting treatment in accordance with SFAS No. 133, “Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities,” and as such, we have effectively hedged our exposure to variability in the future cash flows attributable to the 3-month LIBOR on $500.0 million of variable rate debt. The change in the fair values of the interest rate swaps is recorded on our consolidated balance sheet as an asset or liability with the effective portion of the interest rate swaps’ gains or losses reported as a component of other comprehensive income and the ineffective portion reported in earnings. At December 31, 2007, the estimated aggregate fair value of the interest rate swaps was a liability of approximately $18.4 million.
     The tables below provide information about our fixed rate and variable rate long-term debt agreements as of December 31, 2007 and 2006:

(1)   Includes $500.0 million of the Cinemark USA, Inc. term loan, which represents the debt hedged with our interest rate swap agreements.
Foreign Currency Exchange Rate Risk
     We are also exposed to market risk arising from changes in foreign currency exchange rates as a result of our international operations. Generally, we export from the U.S. certain of the equipment and construction interior finish items and other operating supplies used by our international subsidiaries. Principally all the revenues and operating expenses of our international subsidiaries are transacted in the country’s local currency. Generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. require that our subsidiaries use the currency of the primary economic environment in which they operate as their functional currency. If our subsidiaries operate in a highly inflationary economy, generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. require that the U.S. dollar be used as the functional currency for the subsidiary. Currency fluctuations result in us reporting exchange gains (losses) or foreign currency translation adjustments relating to our international subsidiaries depending on the inflationary environment of the country in which we operate. Based upon our equity ownership in our international subsidiaries as of December 31, 2007, holding everything else constant, a 10% immediate, simultaneous, unfavorable change in all of the foreign currency exchange rates to which we are exposed, would decrease the aggregate net book value of our investments in our international subsidiaries by approximately $36 million and would decrease the aggregate net income of our international subsidiaries by approximately $1.7 million.

Item 9A (T). Controls and Procedures
     Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
     As of December 31, 2007, we carried out an evaluation required by the 1934 Act, under the supervision and with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) of the 1934 Act. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that, as of December 31, 2007, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the 1934 Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and were effective to provide reasonable assurance that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.
     Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting
     Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) of the 1934 Act. The Company’s internal control framework and processes are designed to provide reasonable assurance to management and the board of directors regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of the Company’s consolidated financial statements in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Management has assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2007 based on criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) in Internal Control—Integrated Framework. As a result of this assessment, management concluded that, as of December 31, 2007, our internal control over financial reporting is effective.
     Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
     There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Exchange Act Rules 13a-15 that was conducted during the quarter ended December 31, 2007 that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
     Limitations on Controls
     Management does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will prevent or detect all error and fraud. Any control system, no matter how well designed and operated, is based upon certain assumptions and can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that its objectives will be met. Further, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that misstatements due to error or fraud will not occur or that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
To the Board of Directors
Cinemark Holdings, Inc.
Plano, Texas
     We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2006 and 2007, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity and comprehensive income (loss), and cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2007. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.
     We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
     In our opinion, such consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2006 and 2007, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the three years in the period ended December 31, 2007, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
     As discussed in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements, in 2007 the Company changed its method of accounting for uncertainty in income taxes to adopt Financial Accounting Standards Board Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes – an interpretation of SFAS No. 109.”

1. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
     Business — Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) are leaders in the motion picture exhibition industry in terms of both revenues and the number of screens in operation, with theatres in the United States (“U.S.”), Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Colombia. The Company also managed additional theatres in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, and Colombia during the year ended December 31, 2007.
     Basis of Presentation — On April 2, 2004, an affiliate of Madison Dearborn Partners, LLC, or MDP, acquired approximately 83% of the capital stock of Cinemark, Inc., pursuant to which a newly formed subsidiary owned by an affiliate of MDP was merged with and into Cinemark, Inc., with Cinemark, Inc. continuing as the surviving corporation (the “MDP Merger”). Simultaneously, an affiliate of MDP purchased shares of Cinemark, Inc.’s common stock and became Cinemark, Inc.’s controlling stockholder. Lee Roy Mitchell, Chairman and then Chief Executive Officer, the Mitchell Special Trust and certain members of management collectively retained a minority ownership of Cinemark, Inc.’s capital stock. In December 2004, MDP sold a portion of its stock in Cinemark, Inc. to outside investors and in July 2005, Cinemark, Inc. issued additional shares to another outside investor.
     On August 2, 2006, Cinemark Holdings, Inc. was formed as the Delaware holding company of Cinemark, Inc. On August 7, 2006, the Cinemark, Inc. stockholders entered into a share exchange agreement pursuant to which they agreed to exchange their shares of Class A common stock for an equal number of shares of common stock of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. (“Cinemark Share Exchange”). The Cinemark Share Exchange was completed on October 5, 2006 and facilitated the acquisition of Century Theatres, Inc. (“Century Acquisition”) on that date. On October 5, 2006, Cinemark, Inc. became a wholly owned subsidiary of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. Prior to October 5, 2006, Cinemark Holdings, Inc. had no assets, liabilities or operations. The accompanying consolidated financial statements are reflective of the change in reporting entity that occurred as a result of the Cinemark Share Exchange. Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s consolidated financial statements reflect the accounting basis of its stockholders for all periods presented. On April 24, 2007, Cinemark Holdings, Inc. completed an initial public offering of its common stock.
     Principles of Consolidation — The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries. Majority-owned subsidiaries that the Company has control of are consolidated while those subsidiaries of which the Company owns between 20% and 50% and does not control are accounted for as affiliates under the equity method. Those subsidiaries of which the Company owns less than 20% are generally accounted for as affiliates under the cost method, unless the Company is deemed to have the ability to exercise significant influence over the affiliate, in which case the Company would account for its investment under the equity method. The results of these subsidiaries and affiliates are included in the consolidated financial statements effective with their formation or from their dates of acquisition. Significant intercompany balances and transactions are eliminated in consolidation.
     Cash and Cash Equivalents — Cash and cash equivalents consist of operating funds held in financial institutions, petty cash held by the theatres and highly liquid investments with remaining maturities of three months or less when purchased. At December 31, 2007, our cash investments were primarily in money market funds.
     Inventories — Concession and theatre supplies inventories are stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out method) or market.

     Theatre Properties and Equipment — Theatre properties and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Additions to theatre properties and equipment include the capitalization of $74, $86, and $618 of interest incurred during the development and construction of theatres in the years ended December 31, 2005, 2006 and 2007, respectively. Depreciation is provided using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows:
     
Category   Useful Life
Buildings on owned land
  40 years
Buildings on leased land
  Lesser of lease term or useful life
Buildings under capital lease
  Lesser of lease term or useful life
Theatre furniture and equipment
  5 to 15 years
Leasehold interests and improvements
  Lesser of lease term or useful life
     In accordance with SFAS No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets,” the Company evaluates theatre properties and equipment for impairment in conjunction with the preparation of its quarterly consolidated financial statements or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of the assets may not be fully recoverable. When estimated cash flows will not be sufficient to recover a long-lived asset’s carrying amount, an impairment review is performed in which the Company compares the carrying value of the asset group (theatre) with its estimated fair value, which is determined based on a multiple of cash flows. The multiple was eight times for the evaluations performed during 2007 and 2006 and seven times for 2005. When estimated fair value is determined to be lower than the carrying value of the asset group (theatre), the asset group (theatre) is written down to its estimated fair value. Significant judgment is involved in estimating cash flows and fair value. Management’s estimates are based on historical and projected operating performance as well as recent market transactions. See Note 11.
     The Company has made certain reclassifications between the cost of theatre properties and equipment and the related accumulated depreciation for the December 31, 2006 balance sheet. These reclassifications were made to properly reflect the results of impairment charges recorded on such assets. The impact on theatre properties and equipment, net as of December 31, 2006 was zero.
     Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets — Goodwill is the excess of cost over fair value of theatre businesses acquired. In accordance with SFAS No. 142, “Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets,” goodwill and tradename are tested for impairment at the reporting unit level at least annually or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable. Factors considered include significant underperformance relative to historical or projected business and significant negative industry or economic trends. Goodwill impairment is evaluated using a two-step approach requiring the Company to compute the fair value of a reporting unit (generally at the theatre level), and compare it with its carrying value. If the carrying value of the theatre exceeds its fair value, a second step is performed to measure the potential goodwill impairment. Fair value is estimated based on a multiple of cash flows. The multiple was eight times for the goodwill impairment evaluations performed during 2007 and 2006 and seven times for 2005. Significant judgment is involved in estimating cash flows and fair value. Management’s estimates are based on historical and projected operating performance as well as recent market transactions. See Notes 10 and 11.

     Intangible assets consist of goodwill, tradenames, capitalized licensing fees, vendor contracts, net favorable leases, and other intangible assets. The table below summarizes the amortization method used for each type of intangible asset:
     
Intangible Asset   Amortization Method
Goodwill
  Indefinite-lived
Tradename
  Indefinite-lived
Capitalized licensing fees
  Straight-line method over 15 years. The remaining terms of the underlying agreements range from 7 to 12 years.
Vendor contracts
  Straight-line method over the terms of the underlying contracts. The remaining terms of the underlying contracts range from 1 to 15 years.
Net favorable leases
  Based on the pattern in which the economic benefits are realized over the terms of the lease agreements. The remaining terms of the lease agreements range from 1 to 29 years.
Other intangible assets
  Straight-line method over the terms of the underlying agreement. The remaining term of the underlying agreement is 11 years.
     Deferred Charges and Other Assets — Deferred charges and other assets consist of debt issue costs, long-term prepaid rents, construction advances and other deposits, equipment to be placed in service and other assets. Debt issue costs are amortized using the straight-line method (which approximates the effective interest method) over the primary financing terms of the related debt agreement. Long-term prepaid rents represent advance rental payments on operating leases. These payments are recognized to facility lease expense over the period for which the rent was paid in advance as outlined in the lease agreements. These periods generally range from 10 to 20 years.
     Lease Accounting — The Company accounts for leased properties under the provisions of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 13, “Accounting for Leases", and other authoritative accounting literature. SFAS No. 13 requires that the Company evaluate each lease for classification as either a capital lease or an operating lease. According to SFAS No. 13, if substantially all of the benefits and risks of ownership have been transferred to the lessee, the lessee records the lease as a capital lease at its inception. The Company performs this evaluation at the inception of the lease and when a modification is made to a lease. If the lease agreement calls for a scheduled rent increase during the lease term, the Company, in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Technical Bulletin 85-3, “Accounting for Operating Leases with Scheduled Rent Increases", recognizes the lease expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term as deferred lease expense. The Company determines the straight-line rent expense impact of an operating lease upon inception of the lease. For leases in which the Company is involved with construction of the theatre, the Company accounts for the lease during the construction period under the provisions of Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) 97-10, “The Effect of Lessee Involvement in Asset Construction". The landlord is typically responsible for constructing a theatre using guidelines and specifications agreed to by the Company and assumes substantially all of the risk of construction. In accordance with EITF 97-10, if the Company concludes that it has substantially all of the construction period risks, it records a construction asset and related liability for the amount of total project costs incurred during the construction period. At the end of the construction period, the Company considers SFAS No. 98, “Accounting for Leases: Sale-leaseback Transactions Involving Real Estate", to determine if the transaction qualifies for sale-leaseback accounting treatment in regards to lease classification.
     Deferred Revenues — Advances collected on long-term screen advertising, concession and other contracts are recorded as deferred revenues. In accordance with the terms of the agreements, the advances collected on such contracts are recognized during the period in which the advances are earned, which may differ from the period in which the advances are collected.
     Revenue and Expense Recognition — Revenues are recognized when admissions and concession sales are received at the box office. Other revenues primarily consist of screen advertising. Screen advertising revenues are recognized over the period that the related advertising is delivered on-screen or in-theatre. The Company records proceeds from the sale of gift cards and other advanced sale-type certificates in current liabilities and recognizes admissions and concession revenue when a holder redeems the card or certificate. The Company recognizes unredeemed gift cards and other advanced sale-type certificates as revenue only after such a period of time indicates, based on historical experience, the likelihood of redemption is remote, and based on applicable laws and regulations. In evaluating the likelihood of redemption, the Company considers the period outstanding, the level and frequency of activity, and the period of

inactivity. The Company recognized unredeemed gift cards and other advance sale-type certificates as revenues in the amount of $3,374, $4,421 and $3,975 during the years ended December 31, 2005, 2006 and 2007, respectively.
     Film rental costs are accrued based on the applicable box office receipts and either the mutually agreed upon firm terms or sliding scale formula, which are established prior to the opening of the picture, or estimates of the final mutually agreed upon settlement, which occurs at the conclusion of the picture run, subject to the film licensing arrangement. Estimates are based on the expected success of a film over the length of its run in theatres. The success of a film can typically be determined a few weeks after a film is released when initial box office performance of the film is known. Accordingly, final settlements typically approximate estimates since box office receipts are known at the time the estimate is made and the expected success of a film over the length of its run in theatres can typically be estimated early in the film’s run. The final film settlement amount is negotiated at the conclusion of the film’s run based upon how a film actually performs. If actual settlements are higher than those estimated, additional film rental costs are recorded at that time. The Company recognizes advertising costs and any sharing arrangements with film distributors in the same accounting period. The Company’s advertising costs are expensed as incurred. Advertising expenses for the years ended December 31, 2005, 2006 and 2007 were $15,927, $15,726 and $17,252, respectively.
     Accounting for Share Based Awards — Subsequent to the MDP Merger, the Company established a long term incentive plan (see Note 18). The weighted average fair value per share of stock options granted by the Company during 2004 and 2005 was $7.63 (all of which had an exercise price equal to the market value at the date of grant). For each 2004 and 2005 grant, compensation expense under the fair value method of SFAS No. 123 was estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following assumptions:
                 
    September 30, 2004   January 28, 2005
    Grant   Grant
Expected life
  6.5  years   6.5  years
Expected volatility (1)
    39 %     44 %
Risk-free interest rate
    3.79 %     3.93 %
Dividend yield
    0 %     0 %
Grant date fair value
  $ 3.51     $ 3.80  
 
(1)   Expected volatility is based on historical volatility of the common stock price of comparable public companies.
     Forfeitures were estimated based on the Company’s historical stock option activity.
     In December 2004, the FASB issued SFAS No. 123(R), “Share Based Payment”, which established accounting standards for all transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods and services. SFAS No. 123(R) eliminated the intrinsic value measurement objective in Accounting Principles Board (“APB”) Opinion No. 25 and generally requires a Company to measure the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the fair value of the award on the date of the grant. The standard requires grant date fair value to be estimated using either an option-pricing model, consistent with the terms of the award, or a market observed price, if such a price exists. Such costs must be recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the award (which is usually the vesting period). The standard also requires a Company to estimate the number of instruments that will ultimately be forfeited, rather than accounting for forfeitures as they occur.
     The Company applied SFAS No. 123(R) using the “modified prospective method”, under which it recognized compensation cost for all awards granted, modified or settled on or after January 1, 2006 and for the unvested portion of previously granted awards that were outstanding on January 1, 2006. Accordingly, prior periods have not been restated. The Company had approximately 4,554,253 unvested options outstanding on January 1, 2006. The Company recorded compensation expense of $2,864 and a tax benefit of approximately $1,003 during the year ended December 31, 2006 and recorded compensation expense of $2,881 and a tax benefit of approximately $1,008 during the year ended December 31, 2007 related to these options. As of December 31, 2007, the unrecognized compensation expense related to these options was $3,580 and the weighted average period over which this remaining compensation expense will be recognized is approximately 1.25 years.

     The Company applied Accounting Principles Board (“APB”) Opinion No. 25 and related interpretations in accounting for its stock option plans prior to the adoption of SFAS No. 123(R). Had compensation costs been determined based on the fair value at the date of grant for awards under the stock option plans, consistent with the method of SFAS No. 123, “Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation” and SFAS No. 148, “Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation Transition and Disclosure”, the Company’s net loss for the year ended December 31, 2005 would have been reduced to the pro-forma amount indicated below:
         
Net loss as reported

Compensation expense included in reported net loss, net of tax
     
Compensation expense under fair-value method, net of tax

     During October 2007, the Company granted 21,880 shares of restricted stock to its independent directors. The fair value of the shares was approximately $400 based on the market value of the Company’s stock on the date of grant. The awards fully vest on June 29, 2008 after one year of service. The Company recorded compensation expense of $200 related to these awards during the year ended December 31, 2007. The remaining unrecognized compensation expense related to these awards of $200 will be recorded during 2008.
     Income Taxes — The Company uses an asset and liability approach to financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income taxes are provided when tax laws and financial accounting standards differ with respect to the amount of income for a year and the basis of assets and liabilities. A valuation allowance is recorded to reduce the carrying amount of deferred tax assets unless it is more likely than not that such assets will be realized. Income taxes are provided on unremitted earnings from foreign subsidiaries unless such earnings are expected to be indefinitely reinvested. Income taxes have also been provided for potential tax assessments. The related tax accruals are recorded in accordance with FASB Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes — an interpretation of SFAS No. 109” (FIN 48), which the Company adopted on January 1, 2007. FIN 48 clarifies the accounting and reporting for income taxes recognized in accordance with SFAS No. 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes”, and the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken in income tax returns. The evaluation of a tax position in accordance with FIN 48 is a two-step process. The first step is recognition: The Company determines whether it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained upon examination, including resolution of any related appeals or litigation processes, based on the technical merits of the position. In evaluating whether a tax position has met the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold, the Company should presume that the position would be examined by the appropriate taxing authority that would have full knowledge of all relevant information. The second step is measurement: A tax position that meets the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold is measured to determine the amount of benefit to recognize in the financial statements. The tax position is measured at the largest amount of benefit that is greater than 50 percent likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. Differences between tax positions taken in a tax return and amounts recognized in the financial statements result in (1) an increase in a liability for income taxes payable or (2) a reduction of an income tax refund receivable or a reduction in a deferred tax asset or an increase in a deferred tax liability or both (1) and (2).
     Segments — As of December 31, 2007, the Company managed its business under two reportable operating segments, U.S. markets and international markets, in accordance with SFAS No. 131 “Disclosures About Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information.” See Note 22.
     Use of Estimates — The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the periods presented. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

     Foreign Currency Translations — The assets and liabilities of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries are translated into U.S. dollars at current exchange rates as of the balance sheet date, and revenues and expenses are translated at average monthly exchange rates. The resulting translation adjustments are recorded as a separate component of stockholders’ equity.
     Fair Values of Financial Instruments — Fair values of financial instruments, including the Company’s interest rate swap agreements, are estimated by the Company using available market information and other valuation methods. Values are based on available market quotes or estimates using a discounted cash flow approach based on the interest rates currently available for similar instruments. The fair values of financial instruments for which estimated fair value amounts are not specifically presented are estimated to approximate the recorded values.
     Acquisitions — The Company accounts for acquisitions under the purchase method of accounting in accordance with SFAS No. 141, “Business Combinations”. The purchase method requires that the Company estimate the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed and allocate consideration paid accordingly. For significant acquisitions, the Company obtains independent third party valuation studies for certain of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed to assist the Company in determining fair value. The estimation of the fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed involves a number of estimates and assumptions that could differ materially from the actual amounts recorded.
     Comprehensive Income (Loss) — Total comprehensive income (loss) for the years ended December 31, 2005, 2006 and 2007, was $(18,769), $17,049 and $110,152, respectively. Total comprehensive income (loss) consists of net income (loss), foreign currency translation adjustments and fair value adjustments on the Company’s interest rate swap agreements.
2. NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
     In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements.” Among other requirements, this statement defines fair value, establishes a framework for using fair value to measure assets and liabilities, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. The statement applies whenever other statements require or permit assets or liabilities to be measured at fair value. SFAS No. 157 is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2008 (January 1, 2009 for nonfinancial assets and liabilities). Adoption of this statement is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
     In February 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 159, “The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities”. This statement provides companies with an option to report selected financial assets and liabilities at fair value that are currently not required to be measured at fair value. SFAS No. 159 establishes presentation and disclosure requirements designed to facilitate comparisons between companies that choose different measurement attributes for similar types of assets and liabilities. SFAS No. 159 is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2009. The Company has elected not to measure eligible items at fair value upon initial adoption. Adoption of this statement is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
     In December 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 141(R), “Business Combinations”. This statement requires all business combinations completed after the effective date to be accounted for by applying the acquisition method (previously referred to as the purchase method); expands the definition of transactions and events that qualify as business combinations; requires that the acquired assets and liabilities, including contingencies, be recorded at the fair value determined on the acquisition date and changes thereafter reflected in income, not goodwill; changes the recognition timing for restructuring costs; and requires acquisition costs to be expensed as incurred. Adoption of SFAS No. 141(R) is required for business combinations that occur after December 15, 2008. Early adoption and retroactive application of SFAS No. 141(R) to fiscal years preceding the effective date is not permitted. The Company is evaluating the adoption of SFAS No. 141(R) and its impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
     In December 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 160, “Noncontrolling Interest in Consolidated Financial Statements”. This statement establishes new accounting and reporting standards for the noncontrolling interest in a subsidiary and for the deconsolidation of a subsidiary. Specifically, this statement requires the recognition of a noncontrolling interest (minority interest) as equity in the consolidated financial statements and separate from the parent’s equity. The amount of net income attributable to the noncontrolling interest will be included in consolidated net income

on the face of the income statement. SFAS No. 160 clarifies that changes in a parent’s ownership interest in a subsidiary that do not result in deconsolidation are equity transactions if the parent retains its controlling financial interest. In addition, this statement requires that a parent recognize a gain or loss in net income when a subsidiary is deconsolidated. Such gain or loss will be measured using the fair value of the noncontrolling equity investment on the deconsolidation date. SFAS No. 160 also includes expanded disclosure requirements regarding the interests of the parent and its noncontrolling interest. SFAS No. 160 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning on or after December 15, 2008. Earlier adoption is prohibited. The Company is evaluating the adoption of SFAS No. 160 and its impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
3. INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING OF COMMON STOCK
     On April 24, 2007, the Company completed an initial public offering of its common stock. The Company sold 13,888,889 shares of its common stock and selling stockholders sold an additional 14,111,111 shares of common stock at a price of $17.955 ($19 per share less underwriting discounts). The net proceeds (before expenses) received by the Company were $249,375 and the Company paid approximately $3,526 in legal, accounting and other fees, all of which are recorded in additional paid-in-capital. The selling stockholders granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 2,800,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at a price of $17.955 ($19 per share less underwriting discounts). On May 21, 2007, the underwriters purchased an additional 269,100 shares from the selling stockholders pursuant to this option. The Company did not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares by the selling stockholders. The Company has utilized a portion of the net proceeds that it received from the offering to repurchase a portion of its outstanding 9 3/4% senior discount notes. See Note 13. The Company expects to continue to use the net proceeds to repurchase a portion of the remaining 9 3/4% senior discount notes or repay debt outstanding under the senior secured credit facility. The 9 3/4% senior discount notes are not currently subject to repurchase at the Company’s option. Accordingly, if the Company is unable to repurchase the 9 3/4% senior discount notes at acceptable prices, the Company expects to use a portion of the remaining net proceeds to repay term loan debt outstanding under the senior secured credit facility. The Company has significant flexibility in applying the net proceeds from the initial public offering. The Company has invested the remaining net proceeds in short-term, investment-grade marketable securities or money market funds.
4. EARNINGS PER SHARE
     Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of all classes of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock and potentially dilutive common equivalent shares outstanding determined under the treasury stock method. The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share (shares in thousands):
                         
    Years Ended December 31,
    2005   2006   2007

5. DIVIDEND PAYMENTS
     In August 2007, the Company initiated a quarterly dividend policy. Consistent with the disclosures in the Company’s 424(b)(1) prospectus, the dividend for the second quarter of 2007 was based on a dividend rate of $0.18 per share, prorated based on the April 27, 2007 closing of the Company’s initial public offering. Based on the above proration, the Company’s board of directors declared a cash dividend for the second quarter of 2007 of $0.13 per common share payable to stockholders of record on September 4, 2007, which was paid on September 18, 2007. On November 9, 2007, the Company’s board of directors declared a cash dividend for the third quarter of 2007 of $0.18 per common share payable to stockholders of record on December 3, 2007. The dividend was paid on December 18, 2007. The aggregate amount of dividends paid to stockholders during 2007 was $33,061.
6. ACQUISITION OF CENTURY THEATRES, INC. AND RELATED REFINANCING OF CERTAIN LONG-TERM DEBT
     On October 5, 2006, the Company completed its acquisition of Century Theatres, Inc. (“Century”), a national theatre chain headquartered in San Rafael, California with approximately 77 theatres in 12 states, for a purchase price of approximately $681,225 and the assumption of approximately $360,000 of debt of Century. Of the total purchase price, $150,000 consisted of the issuance of shares of Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s common stock. The Company also incurred approximately $7,448 in transaction costs.
     The transaction was accounted for under the purchase method of accounting in accordance with SFAS No. 141, “Business Combinations”. The following table represents the allocation of purchase price to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed:
         
Current assets (1)
  $ 32,635  
Fixed assets (2)
    548,451  
Goodwill (2)
    640,436  
Tradename
    136,000  
Other long term assets
    4,956  
Net unfavorable leases
    (9,360 )
Current liabilities
    (74,488 )
Other long term liabilities (2)
    (229,957 )
 
     
Total
  $ 1,048,673  
 
     
 
(1)   Includes cash of $7,290.
 
(2)   In 2007, the Company adjusted its preliminary purchase price allocation to fixed assets (increase of $29,398), goodwill (decrease of $18,110) and other long-term liabilities (increase of $11,288) due to additional information obtained regarding the fair value of these assets and liabilities acquired.
     The tradename and net unfavorable leases are presented as intangible assets on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets as of December 31, 2006 and 2007. Goodwill represents the excess of the costs of acquiring Century over amounts assigned to assets acquired, including identifiable intangible assets, and liabilities assumed. The goodwill recorded as a result of the Century Acquisition is not deductible for tax purposes.
     On October 5, 2006, the Company entered into a senior secured credit facility, which provided for a $1,120,000 term loan and a $150,000 revolving credit line. The net proceeds of the new term loan were used to fund a portion of the $531,225 cash portion of the purchase price, to pay off approximately $360,000 under Century’s existing senior credit facility and to refinance amounts under the Company’s existing senior secured credit facility of approximately $253,500. The Company used approximately $53,000 of its existing cash to fund the payment of the remaining portion of the purchase price and related transaction expenses. Additionally, the Company advanced approximately $17,000 of cash to Century to satisfy working capital obligations. See Note 13 for further discussion of long-term debt.
     The Century Acquisition is reflected in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations for the period subsequent to the transaction date and is reported in the Company’s U.S. operating segment. The pro forma financial

7. INVESTMENT IN NATIONAL CINEMEDIA LLC AND TRANSACTION RELATED TO ITS INITIAL PUBLIC OFFERING
     In March 2005, Regal Entertainment Inc. (“Regal”) and AMC Entertainment Inc. (“AMC”) formed National CineMedia, LLC, or “NCM”, and on July 15, 2005, the Company joined NCM, as one of the founding members. NCM operates the largest digital in-theatre network in the U.S. for providing cinema advertising and non-film events and combines the cinema advertising and non-film events businesses of the three largest motion picture companies in the U.S. Upon joining NCM, the Company and NCM entered into an Exhibitor Services Agreement, pursuant to which NCM provides advertising, promotion and event services to the Company’s theatres. On February 13, 2007, National CineMedia, Inc., or NCM Inc., a newly formed entity that now serves as a member and the sole manager of NCM, completed an initial public offering of its common stock. In connection with the NCM Inc. initial public offering, the

Company amended its operating agreement with NCM and the Exhibitor Services Agreement pursuant to which NCM provides advertising, promotion and event services to the Company’s theatres. In connection with NCM Inc.’s initial public offering and the transactions described below (the “NCM Transaction”), the Company received an aggregate of $389,003.
     Prior to pricing the initial public offering of NCM Inc., NCM completed a recapitalization whereby (1) each issued and outstanding Class A unit of NCM was split into 44,291 Class A units, and (2) following such split of Class A Units, each issued and outstanding Class A Unit was recapitalized into one common unit and one preferred unit. As a result, the Company received 14,159,437 common units and 14,159,437 preferred units. All existing preferred units of NCM, or 55,850,951 preferred units, held by Regal, AMC and the Company were redeemed on a pro-rata basis on February 13, 2007. NCM utilized the proceeds of its new $725,000 term loan facility and a portion of the proceeds it received from NCM Inc. from its initial public offering to redeem all of its outstanding preferred units. Each preferred unit was redeemed for $13.7782 and the Company received approximately $195,092 as payment in full for redemption of all of the Company’s preferred units in NCM. Upon payment of such amount, each preferred unit was cancelled and the holders of the preferred units ceased to have any rights with respect to the preferred units.
     At the closing of the initial public offering, the underwriters exercised their over-allotment option to purchase additional shares of common stock of NCM Inc. at the initial public offering price, less underwriting discounts and commissions. In connection with the over-allotment option exercise, Regal, AMC and the Company each sold to NCM Inc. common units of NCM on a pro-rata basis at the initial public offering price, less underwriting discounts and expenses. The Company sold 1,014,088 common units to NCM Inc. for proceeds of $19,910, and upon completion of this sale of common units, the Company owned 13,145,349 common units of NCM. The net proceeds of $215,002 from the above described stock transactions were applied against the Company’s existing investment basis in NCM of $4,069 until such basis was reduced to $0 with the remaining $210,933 of proceeds net of $160 of transaction related costs, recorded as a gain of $210,773 in the consolidated statement of operations for the year ended December 31, 2007.
     NCM also paid the Company a portion of the proceeds it received from NCM Inc. in the initial public offering for agreeing to modify NCM’s payment obligation under the prior Exhibitor Services Agreement. The modification agreed to by the Company reflects a shift from circuit share expense under the prior Exhibitor Services Agreement, which obligated NCM to pay the Company a percentage of revenue, to the monthly theatre access fee described below. The theatre access fee will significantly reduce the contractual amounts paid to the Company by NCM. In exchange for the Company agreeing to so modify the agreement, NCM paid the Company approximately $174,001 upon modification of the Exhibitor Services Agreement on February 13, 2007, the proceeds of which were recorded as deferred revenue on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet. The Company believes this payment approximates the fair value of the Exhibitor Services Agreement modification. The deferred revenue is being amortized into other revenues over the life of the agreement using the units of revenue method. Regal and AMC similarly amended their exhibitor service agreements with NCM.
     In consideration for NCM’s exclusive access to the Company’s theatre attendees for on-screen advertising and use of off-screen locations within the Company’s theatres for the lobby entertainment network and lobby promotions, the Company will receive a monthly theatre access fee under the Exhibitor Services Agreement. The theatre access fee is composed of a fixed payment per patron, initially seven cents, and a fixed payment per digital screen, which may be adjusted for certain enumerated reasons. The payment per theatre patron will increase by 8% every five years, with the first such increase taking effect after the end of fiscal 2011, and the payment per digital screen, initially eight hundred dollars per digital screen per year, will increase annually by 5%, beginning after 2007. The theatre access fee paid in the aggregate to Regal, AMC and the Company will not be less than 12% of NCM’s Aggregate Advertising Revenue (as defined in the Exhibitor Services Agreement), or it will be adjusted upward to reach this minimum payment. Additionally, with respect to any on-screen advertising time provided to the Company’s beverage concessionaire, the Company is required to purchase such time from NCM at a negotiated rate. The Exhibitor Services Agreement has, except with respect to certain limited services, a term of 30 years.
     Prior to the initial public offering of NCM Inc. common stock, the Company’s ownership interest in NCM was approximately 25% and subsequent to the completion of the offering the Company held a 14% interest in NCM. Subsequent to NCM Inc.’s initial public offering, the Company continues to account for its investment in NCM under the equity method of accounting due to its ability to exercise significant control over NCM. The Company has substantial

rights as a founding member, including the right to designate a total of two nominees to the ten-member board of directors of NCM Inc., the sole manager. So long as the Company owns at least 5% of NCM’s membership interests, approval of at least 90% (80% if the board has less than 10 directors) will be required before NCM Inc. may take certain actions including but not limited to mergers and acquisitions, issuance of common or preferred shares, approval of NCM Inc.’s budget, incurrence of indebtedness, entering into or terminating material agreements, and modifications to its articles of incorporation or bylaws. Additionally, if any of the Company’s director designees are not appointed to the board of directors of NCM Inc., nominated by NCM Inc. or elected by NCM Inc.’s stockholders, then the Company (so long as the Company continues to own at least 5% of NCM’s membership interest) will be entitled to approve certain actions of NCM including without limitation, approval of the budget, incurrence of indebtedness, consummating or amending material agreements, approving dividends, amending the NCM operating agreement, hiring or termination of the chief executive officer, chief financial officer, chief technology officer or chief marketing officer of NCM and the dissolution or liquidation of NCM.
     During the years ended December 31, 2005, 2006 and 2007, the Company recorded equity losses of $0, $1,705 and $1,284, respectively.

     As of December 31, 2007, the Company owned 13,145,349 common units of NCM. Each common unit is convertible into one share of NCM Inc. common stock. As of December 31, 2007, the fair market value of the Company’s shares in NCM was approximately $331,394 based on a closing price of $25.21 per share of NCM Inc. common stock on December 31, 2007.
8. INVESTMENT IN DIGITAL CINEMA IMPLEMENTATION PARTNERS
     On February 12, 2007, the Company, AMC and Regal entered into a joint venture known as Digital Cinema Implementation Partners LLC (“DCIP”) to facilitate the implementation of digital cinema in the Company’s theatres and to establish agreements with major motion picture studios for the financing of digital cinema. Future digital cinema developments will be managed by DCIP, subject to the Company’s approval along with the Company’s partners, AMC and Regal. During the year ended December 31, 2007, the Company invested $1,500 for a one-third ownership interest in DCIP. The Company is accounting for its investment in DCIP under the equity method of accounting. During the year ended December 31, 2007, the Company recorded equity losses of approximately $1,240, relating to this investment. The Company’s investment basis in DCIP was $260 at December 31, 2007, which is included in investments in and advances to affiliates on the consolidated balance sheet.
9. SALE OF INVESTMENT IN FANDANGO, INC.
     In May 2007, Fandango, Inc., an on-line ticketing distributor, executed a merger agreement, which resulted in the Company selling its investment in stock of Fandango, Inc. for approximately $14,147 of consideration (the “Fandango Transaction”). Approximately $1,390 of the consideration is in escrow to secure certain indemnification obligations contained in the merger agreement, which is included in accounts receivable on the consolidated balance sheet. The Company paid $2,800 of the cash consideration to Syufy Enterprises, LP in accordance with the terms of agreements entered into as part of the Century Acquisition. The carrying value of the Company’s investment in stock of Fandango, Inc. was $2,142. As a result of the sale of its investment, the Company recorded a gain of $9,205 in the consolidated statement of operations for the year ended December 31, 2007.
     As part of the sale of its investment in stock of Fandango, Inc., the Company amended its exclusive ticketing and distribution agreement with Fandango, Inc. Certain sections of the agreement were modified in which the Company no longer is entitled to receive additional shares of stock in Fandango, Inc. nor share in future adjusted profits of Fandango, Inc. In exchange for the amendment, Fandango, Inc. paid the Company $5,000. The proceeds of $5,000 were recorded as

deferred revenue on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet and are being amortized straight-line over the term of the amended ticketing and distribution agreement, which expires in December 2011.

     In accordance with SFAS No. 142, “Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets”, the Company reviews goodwill for impairment on an annual basis at fiscal year-end or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value of goodwill might exceed its estimated fair value.
     As a result of the NCM Transaction discussed in Note 7, and more specifically the modification of the NCM Exhibitor Services Agreement with the Company, which significantly reduced the contractual amounts paid to the Company, the Company evaluated the carrying value of its goodwill as of March 31, 2007 resulting in the majority of the 2007 goodwill impairment charges reflected above in the table. The Company also performed its annual evaluation as of December 31, 2007.
     The Company evaluates goodwill for impairment at the reporting unit level (generally a theatre) and has allocated goodwill to the reporting unit based on an estimate of its relative fair value. The evaluation is a two-step approach requiring the Company to compute the estimated fair value of a theatre and compare it with its carrying value. If the carrying value exceeds estimated fair value, a second step is performed to measure the potential goodwill impairment. Fair values are determined based on a multiple of cash flows, which was seven times for 2005 and eight times for the evaluations performed during 2006 and 2007. Significant judgment is involved in estimating cash flows and fair value. Management’s estimates are based on historical and projected operating performance as well as recent market transactions. The Company’s policy of allocating goodwill at the theatre level results in more volatile impairment charges on an annual basis due to changes in market conditions and box office performance and the resulting impact on individual theatres.

11. IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS
     In accordance with SFAS No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets,” the Company reviews long-lived assets for impairment on a quarterly basis or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of the assets may not be fully recoverable.
     The Company considers actual theatre level cash flows, future years budgeted theatre level cash flows, theatre property and equipment carrying values, theatre goodwill carrying values, amortizing intangible assets carrying values, the age of a recently built theatre, competitive theatres in the marketplace, changes in foreign currency exchange rates, the impact of recent ticket price changes, available lease renewal options and other factors in its assessment of impairment of individual theatre assets. Long-lived assets are evaluated for impairment on an individual theatre basis, which the Company believes is the lowest applicable level for which there are identifiable cash flows. The impairment evaluation is based on the estimated cash flows from continuing use through the remainder of the theatre’s useful life. The remainder of the useful life correlates with the available remaining lease period, which includes the probability of renewal periods for leased properties and a period of twenty years for fee owned properties. If the estimated cash flows are not sufficient to recover a long-lived asset’s carrying value, the Company then compares the carrying value of the asset group (theatre) with its estimated fair value. Fair value is determined based on a multiple of cash flows, which was seven times for 2005 and eight times for the evaluations performed during 2006 and 2007. When estimated fair value is determined to be lower than the carrying value of the asset group (theatre), the asset group (theatre) is written down to its estimated fair value. Significant judgment is involved in estimating cash flows and fair value. Management’s estimates are based on historical and projected operating performance as well as recent market transactions.
     The Company’s long-lived asset impairment losses are summarized in the following table:

     Senior Discount Notes
     On March 31, 2004, in connection with the MDP merger, Cinemark, Inc. issued approximately $577,173 aggregate principal amount at maturity of 9 3/4% senior discount notes due 2014. Interest on the notes accretes until March 15, 2009 up to their aggregate principal amount. Cash interest will accrue and be payable semi-annually in arrears on March 15 and September 15, commencing on September 15, 2009. Due to Cinemark, Inc.’s holding company status, payments of principal and interest under these notes will be dependent on loans, dividends and other payments from its subsidiaries. Cinemark, Inc. may redeem all or part of the 9 3/4% senior discount notes on or after March 15, 2009.
 
     On September 22, 2005, Cinemark, Inc. repurchased $1,840 aggregate principal amount at maturity of its 9 3/4% senior discount notes as part of an open market purchase for approximately $1,302 including accreted interest. During May 2006, as part of four open market purchases, Cinemark, Inc. repurchased $39,775 aggregate principal amount at maturity of its 9 3/4% senior discount notes for approximately $31,745, including accreted interest of $5,381 and a cash premium of $1,414. Cinemark, Inc. funded these transactions with available cash from its operations. The Company recorded a loss on early retirement of debt of $46 and $2,375 during the years ended December 31, 2005 and 2006, respectively, related to the repurchases noted above, which included premiums paid and the write-off of unamortized debt issue costs.
     During July and August 2007, Cinemark, Inc. repurchased in six open market purchases a total of $47,000 aggregate principal amount at maturity of its 9 3/4% senior discount notes for approximately $42,758, including accreted interest of $10,932 and a cash premium of $2,495. During November 2007, Cinemark, Inc. repurchased in one open market purchase $22,155 aggregate principal amount at maturity of its 9 3/4% senior discount notes for approximately $20,936 including accreted interest of $5,660 and a cash premium of $1,472. Cinemark, Inc. funded these transactions with proceeds from the Company’s initial public offering. The Company recorded a loss on early retirement of debt of $5,504 during the year ended December 31, 2007, related to the 2007 repurchases noted above, which consisted of premiums paid, other fees and the write-off of unamortized debt issue costs.
     As of December 31, 2007, the accreted principal balance of the notes was approximately $415,768 and the aggregate principal amount at maturity was approximately $466,403.  
     The indenture governing the 9 3/4%  senior discount notes contains covenants that limit, among other things, dividends, transactions with affiliates, investments, sales of assets, mergers, repurchases of Cinemark, Inc.’s capital stock, liens and additional indebtedness. The dividend restriction contained in the indenture prevents Cinemark, Inc. from paying a dividend or otherwise distributing cash to its stockholders unless (1) it is not in default, and the distribution would not cause it to be in default, under the indenture; (2) it would be able to incur at least $1.00 more of indebtedness without the ratio of its consolidated cash flow to its fixed charges (each as defined in the indenture, and calculated on a

The dividend restriction is subject to certain exceptions specified in the indenture.
     Upon certain specified types of change of control of Cinemark, Inc., Cinemark, Inc. would be required under the indenture to make an offer to repurchase all of the 9 3/4% senior discount notes at a price equal to 101% of the accreted value of the notes plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, through the date of repurchase.
     Senior Secured Credit Facility
     On October 5, 2006, in connection with the Century Acquisition, Cinemark USA, Inc., entered into a senior secured credit facility. The senior secured credit facility provides for a seven year term loan of $1,120,000 and a $150,000 revolving credit line that matures in six years unless Cinemark USA, Inc.’s 9% senior subordinated notes have not been refinanced by August 1, 2012 with indebtedness that matures no earlier than seven and one-half years after the closing date of the senior secured credit facility, in which case the maturity date of the revolving credit line becomes August 1, 2012. The net proceeds of the term loan were used to finance a portion of the $531,225 cash portion of the Century Acquisition, repay in full the $253,500 outstanding under the former senior secured credit facility, repay approximately $360,000 of existing indebtedness of Century and to pay for related fees and expenses. The revolving credit line was left undrawn at closing. The revolving credit line is used for general corporate purposes.
     At December 31, 2007, there was $1,101,686 outstanding under the term loan and no borrowings outstanding under the revolving credit line. Approximately $149,931 was available for borrowing under the revolving credit line, giving effect to a $69 letter of credit outstanding. The average interest rate on outstanding borrowings under the senior secured credit facility at December 31, 2007 was 6.7% per annum.
     Under the term loan, principal payments of $2,800 are due each calendar quarter beginning December 31, 2006 through September 30, 2012 and increase to $263,200 each calendar quarter from December 31, 2012 to maturity at October 5, 2013. Prior to the amendment to the senior secured credit facility discussed below, the term loan accrued interest, at Cinemark USA, Inc.’s option, at: (A) the base rate equal to the higher of (1) the prime lending rate as set forth on the British Banking Association Telerate page 5 or (2) the federal funds effective rate from time to time plus 0.50%, plus a margin that ranges from 0.75% to 1.00% per annum, or (B) a “eurodollar rate” plus a margin that ranges from 1.75% to 2.00% per annum, in each case as adjusted pursuant to Cinemark USA, Inc.’s corporate credit rating. Borrowings under the revolving credit line bear interest, at Cinemark USA, Inc.’s option, at: (A) a base rate equal to the higher of (1) the prime lending rate as set forth on the British Banking Association Telerate page 5 and (2) the federal funds effective rate from time to time plus 0.50%, plus a margin that ranges from 0.50% to 1.00% per annum, or (B) a “eurodollar rate” plus a margin that ranges from 1.50% to 2.00% per annum, in each case as adjusted pursuant to Cinemark USA, Inc.’s consolidated net senior secured leverage ratio as defined in the credit agreement. Cinemark USA, Inc. is required to pay a commitment fee calculated at the rate of 0.50% per annum on the average daily unused portion of the revolving credit line, payable quarterly in arrears, which rate decreases to 0.375% per annum for any fiscal quarter in which Cinemark USA, Inc.’s consolidated net senior secured leverage ratio on the last day of such fiscal quarter is less than 2.25 to 1.0.
     On March 14, 2007, Cinemark USA, Inc. amended its senior secured credit facility to, among other things, modify the interest rate on the term loans under the senior secured credit facility, modify certain prepayment terms and covenants, and facilitate the tender offer for the 9% senior subordinated notes. The term loans now accrue interest, at Cinemark USA, Inc.’s option, at: (A) the base rate equal to the higher of (1) the prime lending rate as set forth on the British Banking Association Telerate page 5, or (2) the federal funds effective rate from time to time plus 0.50%, plus a margin that ranges from 0.50% to 0.75% per annum, or (B) a “eurodollar rate” plus a margin that ranges from 1.50% to 1.75%, per annum. In each case, the margin is a function of the corporate credit rating applicable to the borrower. The interest rate on the revolving credit line was not amended. Additionally, the amendment removed any obligation to prepay

amounts outstanding under the senior secured credit facility in an amount equal to the amount of the net cash proceeds received from the NCM Transaction or from excess cash flows, and imposed a 1% prepayment premium for one year on certain prepayments of the term loans.
     Cinemark USA, Inc.’s obligations under the senior secured credit facility are guaranteed by Cinemark Holdings, Inc., Cinemark, Inc., CNMK Holding, Inc., and certain of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s domestic subsidiaries and are secured by mortgages on certain fee and leasehold properties and security interests in substantially all of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s and the guarantors’ personal property, including, without limitation, pledges of all of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s capital stock, all of the capital stock of Cinemark, Inc., CNMK Holding, Inc. and certain of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s domestic subsidiaries and 65% of the voting stock of certain of its foreign subsidiaries.
     The senior secured credit facility contains usual and customary negative covenants for agreements of this type, including, but not limited to, restrictions on Cinemark USA, Inc.’s ability, and in certain instances, its subsidiaries’ and Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s, Cinemark, Inc.’s and CNMK Holding, Inc.’s ability, to consolidate or merge or liquidate, wind up or dissolve; substantially change the nature of its business; sell, transfer or dispose of assets; create or incur indebtedness; create liens; pay dividends, repurchase stock and voluntarily repurchase or redeem the 9 3/4% senior discount notes; and make capital expenditures and investments. The senior secured credit facility also requires Cinemark USA, Inc. to satisfy a consolidated net senior secured leverage ratio covenant as determined in accordance with the senior secured credit facility. The dividend restriction contained in the senior secured credit facility prevents the Company and any of our subsidiaries from paying a dividend or otherwise distributing cash to its stockholders unless (1) the Company is not in default, and the distribution would not cause the Company to be in default, under the senior secured credit facility; and (2) the aggregate amount of certain dividends, distributions, investments, redemptions and capital expenditures made since October 5, 2006, including the distribution currently proposed, is less than the sum of (a) the aggregate amount of cash and cash equivalents received by Cinemark Holdings, Inc. or Cinemark USA, Inc. as common equity since October 5, 2006, (b) Cinemark USA, Inc.’s consolidated EBITDA minus 1.75 times its consolidated interest expense, each as defined in the senior secured credit facility, since October 1, 2006, (c) $150 million and (d) certain other amounts specified in the senior secured credit facility, subject to certain adjustments specified in the senior secured credit facility. The dividend restriction is subject to certain exceptions specified in the senior secured credit facility.
     The senior secured credit facility also includes customary events of default, including, among other things, payment default, covenant default, breach of representation or warranty, bankruptcy, cross-default, material ERISA events, certain types of change of control, material money judgments and failure to maintain subsidiary guarantees. If an event of default occurs, all commitments under the senior secured credit facility may be terminated and all obligations under the senior secured credit facility could be accelerated by the lenders, causing all loans outstanding (including accrued interest and fees payable thereunder) to be declared immediately due and payable.
     Senior Subordinated Notes
     On February 11, 2003, Cinemark USA, Inc. issued $150,000 aggregate principal amount of 9% senior subordinated notes due 2013 and on May 7, 2003, Cinemark USA, Inc. issued an additional $210,000 aggregate principal amount of 9% senior subordinated notes due 2013, collectively referred to as the 9% senior subordinated notes. Interest is payable on February 1 and August 1 of each year.
     On April 6, 2004, as a result of the MDP Merger and in accordance with the terms of the indenture governing the 9% senior subordinated notes, Cinemark USA, Inc. made a change of control offer to repurchase the 9% senior subordinated notes at a purchase price of 101% of the aggregate principal amount. Approximately $17,750 aggregate principal amount of the 9% senior subordinated notes were tendered. The payment of the change of control price was funded with available cash by Cinemark USA, Inc. on June 1, 2004.
     During May 2006, as part of three open market purchases, Cinemark USA, Inc. repurchased $10,000 aggregate principal amount of its 9% senior subordinated notes for approximately $10,977, including cash premiums paid and accrued and unpaid interest.

     On March 6, 2007, Cinemark USA, Inc. commenced an offer to purchase for cash any and all of its then outstanding $332,250 aggregate principal amount of 9% senior subordinated notes. In connection with the tender offer, Cinemark USA, Inc. solicited consents for certain proposed amendments to the indenture to remove substantially all restrictive covenants and certain events of default provisions. On March 20, 2007, the early settlement date, Cinemark USA, Inc. repurchased $332,000 aggregate principal amount of 9% senior subordinated notes and executed a supplemental indenture removing substantially all of the restrictive covenants and certain events of default. Cinemark USA, Inc. used the proceeds from the NCM Transaction and cash on hand to purchase the 9% senior subordinated notes tendered pursuant to the tender offer and consent solicitation. On March 20, 2007, the Company and the Bank of New York Trust Company, N.A., as trustee to the Indenture dated February 11, 2003, executed the Fourth Supplemental Indenture. The Fourth Supplemental Indenture became effective on March 20, 2007 and it amends the Indenture by eliminating substantially all restrictive covenants and certain events of default provisions. On April 3, 2007, Cinemark USA, Inc. repurchased an additional $66 aggregate principal amount of the 9% senior subordinated notes tendered after the early settlement date. The Company recorded a loss on early retirement of debt of $7,952 during the year ended December 31, 2007, related to the 2007 repurchases discussed above, which consisted of tender offer repurchase costs, including premiums paid and other fees, and the write-off of unamortized debt issue costs, partially offset by the write-off of an unamortized bond premium.
     As of December 31, 2007, Cinemark USA, Inc. had outstanding approximately $184 aggregate principal amount of 9% senior subordinated notes. Cinemark USA, Inc. may redeem the remaining 9% senior subordinated notes on or after February 1, 2008.
     Former Senior Secured Credit Facility
     On April 2, 2004, Cinemark USA, Inc. amended its then existing senior secured credit facility in connection with the MDP Merger. The amended senior secured credit facility provided for a $260,000 seven year term loan and a $100,000 six and one-half year revolving credit line. The net proceeds from the amended senior secured credit facility were used to repay the then existing term loan of approximately $163,764 and to redeem the approximately $94,165 aggregate principal amount of Cinemark USA, Inc.’s then outstanding $105,000 aggregate principal amount 81/2% senior subordinated notes due 2008 that were tendered pursuant to the tender offer.
     On October 5, 2006, in connection with the Century Acquisition, the $253,500 outstanding under the former senior secured credit facility was repaid in full with a portion of the proceeds from the senior secured credit facility. During the year ended December 31, 2006, the Company recorded a loss on early retirement of debt of $5,782 related to the write-off unamortized debt issue costs associated with the former senior secured credit facility.

     Covenant Compliance and Debt Maturity
     As of December 31, 2007, the Company was in full compliance with all agreements, including related covenants, governing its outstanding debt. The Company’s long-term debt at December 31, 2007 matures as follows:
         
2008
  $ 9,166  
2009
    13,775  
2010
    12,452  
2011

2012
    271,600  
Thereafter
    1,256,187  
 
     
Total
  $ 1,574,380  
 
     
     The estimated fair value of the Company’s long-term debt at December 31, 2007 was approximately $1,552,892. This amount does not include prepayment penalties that would be incurred upon the early extinguishment of certain debt issues.
     Debt issue costs of $37,660, less accumulated amortization of $9,522, are related to the senior discount notes, senior subordinated notes, the senior secured credit facility and other debt agreements and are included in deferred charges and other assets — net, on the consolidated balance sheets at December 31, 2007 (See Note 12).
14. INTEREST RATE SWAP AGREEMENTS
     During March 2007, the Company entered into two interest rate swap agreements with effective dates of August 13, 2007 and terms of five years each. The interest rate swaps were designated to hedge approximately $500,000 of the Company’s variable rate debt obligations under its senior secured credit facility. Under the terms of the interest rate swap agreements, the Company pays fixed rates of 4.918% and 4.922% on $375,000 and $125,000, respectively, of variable rate debt and receives interest at a variable rate based on the 3-month LIBOR. The 3-month LIBOR rate on each reset date determines the variable portion of the interest rate swaps for the three-month period following the reset date. No premium or discount was incurred upon the Company entering into the interest rate swaps because the pay and receive rates on the interest rate swaps represented prevailing rates for each counterparty at the time the interest rate swaps were consummated. The interest rate swaps qualify for cash flow hedge accounting treatment in accordance with SFAS No. 133, “Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities,” and as such, the Company has effectively hedged its exposure to variability in the future cash flows attributable to the 3-month LIBOR on $500,000 of variable rate debt. The change in the fair values of the interest rate swaps is recorded on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet as an asset or liability with the effective portion of the interest rate swaps’ gains or losses reported as a component of other comprehensive income and the ineffective portion reported in earnings.
     As of December 31, 2007, the interest rate swaps were a liability with an aggregate fair value of approximately $18,422, which has been recorded as a component of deferred revenues and other long-term liabilities with a corresponding amount of $18,422 ($11,348 net of deferred taxes) recorded as a decrease in accumulated other comprehensive income on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet. The interest rate swaps exhibited no ineffectiveness during the year ended December 31, 2007.
15. FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSLATION
     The accumulated other comprehensive income account in stockholders’ equity of $11,463 and $32,695 at December 31, 2006 and December 31, 2007, respectively, includes the cumulative foreign currency adjustments of $11,463 and $44,043, respectively, from translating the financial statements of the Company’s international subsidiaries.
     In 2006 and 2007, all foreign countries where the Company has operations, including Brazil were deemed non-highly inflationary. Thus, any fluctuation in the currency results in a cumulative foreign currency translation adjustment to the accumulated other comprehensive income account recorded as an increase in, or reduction of, stockholders’ equity.

     On December 31, 2007, the exchange rate for the Brazilian real was 1.77 reais to the U.S. dollar (the exchange rate was 2.14 reais to the U.S. dollar at December 31, 2006). As a result, the effect of translating the December 31, 2007 Brazilian financial statements into U.S. dollars is reflected as a cumulative foreign currency translation adjustment to the accumulated other comprehensive income account as an increase in stockholders’ equity of $47,233. At December 31, 2007, the total assets of the Company’s Brazilian subsidiaries were U.S. $204,661.
     On December 31, 2007, the exchange rate for the Mexican peso was 10.92 pesos to the U.S. dollar (the exchange rate was 10.82 pesos to the U.S. dollar at December 31, 2006). As a result, the effect of translating the December 31, 2007 Mexican financial statements into U.S. dollars is reflected as a cumulative foreign currency translation adjustment to the accumulated other comprehensive income account as a decrease in stockholders’ equity of $949. At December 31, 2007, the total assets of the Company’s Mexican subsidiaries were U.S. $162,937.

18. CAPITAL STOCK
     Common — Common stockholders are entitled to vote on all matters submitted to a vote of the Company’s stockholders. Subject to the rights of holders of any then outstanding shares of the Company’s preferred stock, the Company’s common stockholders are entitled to any dividends that may be declared by the board of directors. The shares of the Company’s common stock are not subject to any redemption provisions. The Company has no issued and outstanding shares of preferred stock.
     The Company’s ability to pay dividends is effectively limited by its status as a holding company and the terms of its indenture and its subsidiary’s senior secured credit facility, which also significantly restrict the ability of certain of the Company’s subsidiaries to pay dividends directly or indirectly to the Company. Furthermore, certain of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries currently have a deficit in retained earnings which prevents the Company from declaring and paying dividends from those subsidiaries.
     All stock information has been adjusted to give effect to a 2.9585-for-1 stock split effected by the Company on April 9, 2007.
     Share Based Awards — Upon consummation of the MDP Merger on April 2, 2004, all Cinemark, Inc.’s stock options outstanding prior to the MDP Merger immediately vested and the majority were repurchased and the then existing stock option plans, which included the Independent Director Stock Options and the Long Term Incentive Plan, were terminated.
     On September 30, 2004, Cinemark, Inc.’s board of directors and the majority of its stockholders approved the 2004 Long Term Incentive Plan (the “2004 Plan”) under which 9,097,360 shares of common stock are available for issuance to selected employees, directors and consultants of the Company. The 2004 Plan provided for restricted share grants, incentive option grants and nonqualified option grants.
     On August 2, 2006, Cinemark Holdings, Inc. was formed as the Delaware holding company of Cinemark, Inc. Under a share exchange agreement dated August 7, 2006, each outstanding share of Cinemark, Inc.’s Class A common stock was exchanged for an equivalent number of shares of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. common stock. The share exchange was completed on October 5, 2006.
     In November 2006, Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s board of directors amended the 2004 Plan to provide that no additional awards may be granted under the 2004 Plan. At that time, the Board of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and the majority of Cinemark Holdings, Inc.’s stockholders approved the 2006 Long Term Incentive Plan (the “2006 Plan”). The 2006 Plan is substantially similar to the 2004 Plan.
     During October 2007, the Company’s board of directors and a majority of its stockholders approved an amendment to the 2006 Plan that allows option holders, at the discretion of the Compensation Committee of the Company’s board of directors, to exercise options to purchase common stock by directing the Company to retain an equivalent number of shares having a fair market value equal to all or part of the exercise price of the exercised options. The amendment did not result in any additional compensation expense to the Company.
     Stock Options — On September 30, 2004, the Company granted options to purchase 6,986,731 shares of its common stock under the 2004 Plan at an exercise price of $7.63 per option. The exercise price was equal to the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of grant. Options to purchase 692,976 shares vested immediately and the remaining options granted in 2004 vest daily over the period ending April 1, 2009. The options expire ten years from the grant date. On January 28, 2005, the Company granted options to purchase 12,055 shares of its common stock under the Plan at an exercise price of $7.63 per option (equal to the market value at the date of grant). The options vest daily over five years and the options expire ten years from the grant date.

     During December 2007, the Company sold the land and building for one of its theatres for approximately $22,739, resulting in a gain of approximately $2,653. The Company has elected to use these proceeds to purchase a like-kind property in accordance with certain tax guidelines in the Internal Revenue Code. As a result of this election, the proceeds were deposited to an escrow account to which the Company does not have access until it has identified the like-kind property to purchase with the proceeds. As of December 31, 2007, the proceeds from this sale are included as Deferred Charges and Other Assets on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet.

     The Company’s valuation allowance increased from $8,862 at December 31, 2006 to $9,872 at December 31, 2007. This change was primarily due to utilization of Mexican asset tax credits and an increase in foreign tax credit and state net operating loss carryovers.
     The Company’s foreign tax credit carryforwards begin expiring in 2015. The foreign net operating losses began expiring in 2002; however, some losses may be carried forward indefinitely. Certain of the Company’s state net operating losses expired in 2006. The vast majority of state net operating losses may be carried forward for up to twenty years with the last expiring year being 2026.
     Management continues to reinvest the undistributed earnings of its foreign subsidiaries. Accordingly, deferred U.S. federal and state income taxes are not provided on the undistributed earnings of these foreign subsidiaries. As of December 31, 2007, the cumulative amount of undistributed earnings of these foreign subsidiaries on which the Company has not recognized income taxes was approximately $141,000.
     The Company adopted FASB Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes” (“FIN 48”), on January 1, 2007. As a result of the implementation of FIN 48, the Company recognized an increase to its liability for uncertain tax positions of approximately $1,093, which was accounted for as a cumulative effect on beginning retained earnings at January 1, 2007. At the adoption date, the Company had approximately $12,084 of gross unrecognized tax benefits, including interest and penalties. Of this amount, $7,931 represents the amount of unrecognized tax benefits that, if recognized, would impact the effective income tax rate. The Company recognizes interest and/or penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense. As of January 1, 2007 the Company had $1,572 accrued for the payment of interest and penalties.

     As of December 31, 2007, the Company had $15,500 of gross unrecognized tax benefits, including interest and penalties. Of this amount, $10,768 represents the amount of unrecognized tax benefits that, if recognized, would impact the effective income tax rate. As of December 31, 2007 the Company had $3,007 accrued for interest and/or penalties.
     Cinemark files income tax returns in multiple jurisdictions throughout the US and Latin America. In the US, we are currently under audit by the Internal Revenue Service for the 2002, 2003 and 2004 tax years. Due to uncertainty regarding the timing of the settlement of tax audits, it is possible that there could be significant changes in the amounts of unrecognized tax benefits in 2008, but the amount of such changes cannot be estimated as of December 31, 2007.
     The Company or one of its subsidiaries files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, and multiple state and foreign jurisdictions, and the Company is routinely under audit by many different tax authorities. Management believes that its accrual for tax liabilities is adequate for all open audit years based on its assessment of many factors including past experience and interpretations of tax law. This assessment relies on estimates and assumptions and may involve a series of complex judgments about future events. The Company is no longer subject to income tax audits from the Internal Revenue Service for years before 2002. The Company is no longer subject to state income tax examinations by tax authorities in its major state jurisdictions for years before 2002. The Company is no longer subject to non-US income tax examinations by tax authorities in its major non-U.S. tax jurisdictions for years before 1998.
21. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
     Leases — The Company conducts a significant part of its theatre operations in leased properties under noncancelable operating and capital leases with terms generally ranging from 10 to 25 years. In addition to the minimum annual lease payments, some of the leases provide for contingent rentals based on operating results of the theatre and most require the payment of taxes, insurance and other costs applicable to the property. The Company can renew, at its option, a substantial portion of the leases at defined or then market rental rates for various periods. Some leases also provide for escalating rent payments throughout the lease term. A liability for deferred lease expenses of $14,286 and $19,235 at December 31, 2006 and 2007, respectively, has been provided to account for lease expenses on a straight-line basis, where lease payments are not made on such a basis.

     Employment Agreements — On March 12, 2004, the Company entered into new employment agreements with certain executives which became effective upon the consummation of the MDP Merger on April 2, 2004. In addition, in connection with the MDP Merger, the Company paid a one-time special bonus in the amount of $2,400 to Lee Roy Mitchell and in the amount of $50 to each of Alan Stock, Tim Warner and Robert Copple. Set forth below is a summary of the Company’s employment agreements.
Lee Roy Mitchell
     The Company entered into an employment agreement with Lee Roy Mitchell pursuant to which Mr. Mitchell currently serves as the Company’s Chairman. The employment agreement became effective upon the consummation of the MDP Merger. The initial term of the employment agreement is three years, subject to an automatic extension for a one-year period, unless the employment agreement is terminated. Mr. Mitchell received a base salary of approximately $795 during 2007, which is subject to annual review for increase (but not decrease) each year by the Company’s board of directors or committee or delegate thereof. In addition, Mr. Mitchell is eligible to receive an annual cash incentive bonus upon the Company meeting certain performance targets established by the board or the compensation committee for the fiscal year. Mr. Mitchell is also entitled to additional fringe benefits including life insurance benefits of not less than $5,000, disability benefits of not less than 66% of base salary, a luxury automobile and a membership at a country club. The employment agreement provides for severance payments upon termination of employment, the amount and nature of which depends upon the reason for the termination of employment. If Mr. Mitchell resigns for good reason or is terminated by the Company without cause (as defined in the agreement), Mr. Mitchell will receive: accrued compensation (which includes base salary and a pro rata bonus) through the date of termination; his annual base salary as in effect at the time of termination for a period of twelve months following such termination; an amount equal to the most recent annual bonus he received prior to the date of termination; and any previously vested stock options and accrued benefits, such as retirement benefits, in accordance with the terms of the plan or agreement pursuant to which such options or benefits were granted. Mr. Mitchell’s equity-based or performance-based awards will become fully vested and exercisable upon such termination or resignation and Mr. Mitchell may choose to continue to participate in the Company’s benefit plan for a period of twelve months from the date of such termination.
     In the event Mr. Mitchell’s employment is terminated due to his death or disability, Mr. Mitchell or his estate will receive: accrued compensation (which includes base salary and a pro rata bonus) through the date of termination; any previously vested stock options and accrued benefits, such as retirement benefits, in accordance with the terms of the plan or agreement pursuant to which such options or benefits were granted; his annual base salary as in effect at the time of termination for a period of six months following the date Mr. Mitchell is first unable to substantially perform his duties under his employment agreement; a lump sum payment equal to an additional six months

of base salary payable six months after the date of such six month period, and any benefits payable to Mr. Mitchell and or his beneficiaries in accordance with the terms of any applicable benefit plan.
     In the event Mr. Mitchell’s employment is terminated by the Company for cause or under a voluntary termination (as defined in the agreement), Mr. Mitchell will receive: accrued base salary through the date of termination; and any previously vested rights under a stock option or similar incentive compensation plan in accordance with the terms of such plan.
     Unless Mr. Mitchell’s employment is terminated by us for cause or under a voluntary termination, Mr. Mitchell will also be entitled, for a period of five years, to tax preparation assistance upon termination of his employment. The employment agreement contains various covenants, including covenants related to confidentiality, non-competition (other than certain permitted activities as defined therein) and non-solicitation.
Tandy Mitchell, Alan Stock, Robert Copple, Timothy Warner, Robert Carmony, John Lundin and Michael Cavalier
     The Company entered into executive employment agreements with each of Tandy Mitchell, Alan Stock, Robert Copple, Timothy Warner, Robert Carmony, John Lundin and Michael Cavalier pursuant to which Mrs. Mitchell and Messrs. Stock, Copple, Warner, Carmony, Lundin and Cavalier currently serve, respectively, as the Company’s Executive Vice President, Chief Executive Officer, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, President and Chief Operating Officer, Senior Vice President — New Technology and Training, Vice President of Film Licensing and Senior Vice President — General Counsel. The employment agreements became effective upon the consummation of the MDP Merger. The initial term of each employment agreement is three years, subject to automatic extensions for a one-year period at the end of each year of the term, unless the agreement is terminated. Pursuant to the employment agreements, each of these individuals receives a base salary, which is subject to annual review for increase (but not decrease) each year by the Company’s board of directors or committee or delegate thereof. In addition, each of these executives is eligible to receive an annual cash incentive bonus upon the Company’s meeting certain performance targets established by the Company’s board of directors or the compensation committee for the fiscal year.
     The Company’s board of directors has adopted a stock option plan and granted each executive stock options to acquire such number of shares as set forth in that executive’s employment agreement. The executive’s stock options vest and become exercisable twenty percent per year on a daily pro rata basis and shall be fully vested and exercisable five years after the date of the grant, as long as the executive remains continuously employed by the Company. Upon consummation of a sale of the Company, the executive’s stock options will accelerate and become fully vested.
     The employment agreement with each executive provides for severance payments on substantially the same terms as the employment agreement for Mr. Mitchell. Each executive will also be entitled to office space and support services for a period of not more than three months following the date of any termination except for termination for cause. The employment agreements contain various covenants, including covenants related to confidentiality, non-competition and non-solicitation.
     Retirement Savings Plan — The Company has a 401(k) retirement savings plan for the benefit of all employees and makes contributions as determined annually by the board of directors. Contribution payments of $1,295 and $1,430 were made in 2006 (for plan year 2005) and 2007 (for plan year 2006), respectively. A liability of approximately $1,795 has been recorded at December 31, 2007 for contribution payments to be made in 2008 (for plan year 2007).
     Letters of Credit and Collateral — The Company had outstanding letters of credit of $69, in connection with property and liability insurance coverage, at December 31, 2006 and 2007.
     Litigation and Litigation Settlements — DOJ Litigation — In March 1999, the Department of Justice (“DOJ”) filed suit in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, against the Company alleging certain

violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (the “ADA”) relating to the Company’s wheelchair seating arrangements and seeking remedial action. An order granting summary judgment to the Company was issued in November 2001. The Department of Justice appealed the district court’s ruling with the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. On November 7, 2003, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the summary judgment and sent the case back to the district court for further review without deciding whether wheelchair seating at the Company’s theatres comply with the ADA. The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals also stated that if the district court found that the theatres did not comply with the ADA, any remedial action should be prospective only. The Company and the United States have resolved this lawsuit. A consent order was entered by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, on November 15, 2004. This consent order fully and finally resolves the United States v. Cinemark USA, Inc. lawsuit, and all claims asserted against the Company in that lawsuit have been dismissed with prejudice. Under the consent order, the Company will make modifications to wheelchair seating locations in fourteen stadium-style movie theatres, and spacing and companion seating modifications at 67 auditoriums at other stadium-styled movie theatres. These modifications must be completed by November 2009. Upon completion of these modifications, such theatres will comply with all existing and pending ADA wheelchair seating requirements, and no further modifications will be required to the Company’s other stadium-style movie theatres in the United States existing on the date of the consent order. Under the consent order, the DOJ approved the seating plans for nine stadium-styled movie theatres under construction. The Company and the DOJ have also created a safe harbor framework for the Company to construct all of its future stadium-style movie theatres. The DOJ has stipulated that all theatres built in compliance with the consent order will comply with the wheelchair seating requirements of the ADA. The Company believes that its obligations under the consent order are not material in the aggregate to its financial position, results of operations and cash flows.
     From time to time, the Company is involved in other various legal proceedings arising from the ordinary course of its business operations, such as personal injury claims, employment matters, landlord-tenant disputes and contractual disputes, most of which are covered by insurance. The Company believes its potential liability with respect to proceedings currently pending is not material, individually or in the aggregate, to the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

22. SEGMENTS
     At December 31, 2007, the Company identified its international market and its U.S. market as separate reportable operating segments. The international segment consists of operations in Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Peru, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama and Colombia. The U.S. segment includes U.S. and Canada operations. Each segment’s revenue is derived from admissions and concession sales and other ancillary revenues, primarily screen advertising. The primary measure of segment profit and loss the Company uses to evaluate performance and allocate its resources is Adjusted EBITDA, as defined in the reconciliation table below. The Company’s management evaluates the performance of its assets on a consolidated basis.

     The Company manages one theatre for Laredo Theatre, Ltd. (“Laredo”). The Company is the sole general partner and owns 75% of the limited partnership interests of Laredo. Lone Star Theatres, Inc. owns the remaining 25% of the limited partnership interests in Laredo and is 100% owned by Mr. David Roberts, Lee Roy Mitchell’s son-in-law. Under the agreement, management fees are paid by Laredo to the Company at a rate of 5% of annual theatre revenues up to $50,000 and 3% of annual theatre revenues in excess of $50,000. The Company recorded $201, $191 and $82 of management fee revenues during the years ended December 31, 2005, 2006 and 2007, respectively, and received $675, $600 and $0 of distributions from Laredo during the years ended December 31, 2005, 2006 and 2007, respectively. All such amounts are included in the Company’s consolidated financial statements with the intercompany amounts eliminated in consolidation.

of these 22 leases have triggering events that allow the Company to convert the fixed minimum rent to a fixed percentage of gross sales as defined in the lease with the further right to terminate the lease if the theatre level cash flow drops below $0. Five of these 22 leases have triggering events that allow the Company to terminate the lease prior to expiration of the term. The five leases without minimum annual rent have rent based upon a specified percentage of gross sales as defined in the lease with no minimum annual rent. Four of these percentage rent leases expire in approximately nine months but have automatic 12 month renewal options, and the Company has the right to terminate the leases if theatre level cash flow drops below $0. One of these percentage rent leases has a remaining term of 9 months and Syufy has the right to terminate this lease prior to the end of the term.
     The Company also has an office lease with Syufy for corporate office space in San Rafael, California. The lease will expire in September 2008. The lease has a fixed minimum annual rent of approximately $300.
     The Company entered into an amended and restated profit participation agreement on March 12, 2004 with its CEO, Alan Stock, which became effective on April 2, 2004, and amended the profit participation agreement with Mr. Stock in effect since May 2002. Under the agreement, Mr. Stock received a profit interest in two theatres once the Company recovered its capital investment in these theatres plus its borrowing costs. After the Company’s initial public offering, the Company exercised its option to terminate the amended and restated profit participation agreement and purchased Mr. Stock’s interest in the theatres on May 3, 2007 for a price of $6,853 pursuant to the terms of the agreement. The Company also paid payroll taxes of approximately $99 related to the payment made to terminate the amended and restated profit participation agreement. The aggregate amount paid of $6,952 is reflected within cost of operations in the Company’s consolidated statement of operations for the year ended December 31, 2007 and the agreement with Mr. Stock has been terminated.
     Prior to the completion of the Century Acquisition, Century Theatres, Inc. owned certain shares of Fandango, Inc., an on-line ticketing distributor. In connection with the Century Acquisition, the Company agreed to pay Syufy the cash proceeds received by the Company in connection with any sale of such shares of Fandango, Inc. up to a maximum amount of $2,800. As discussed in Note 9, the Company sold all of its shares of Fandango, Inc. stock during May 2007 for approximately $14,147 of consideration and paid $2,800 of the cash consideration to Syufy in accordance with the Century Acquisition agreement.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
To the Board of Directors and Members of
National CineMedia, LLC
Centennial, Colorado
We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of National CineMedia LLC (the “Company”) as of December 27, 2007 and as of December 28, 2006 and the related statements of operations, members’ equity (deficit) and cash flows for the period February 13, 2007 through December 27, 2007, the period December 29, 2006 through February 12, 2007, for the year ended December 28, 2006, and for the period March 29, 2005 through December 29, 2005. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the financial statements based on our audits.
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
In our opinion, such financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of National CineMedia LLC as of December 27, 2007 and the related statements of operations, members’ equity (deficit) and cash flows for the period February 13, 2007 through December 27, 2007, the period December 29, 2006 through February 12, 2007, for the year ended December 28, 2006, and for the period March 29, 2005 through December 29, 2005 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
1. THE COMPANY AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
     Description of Business
     National CineMedia, LLC (“NCM LLC” or the “Company”) commenced operations on April 1, 2005 and operates the largest digital in-theatre network in North America that allows NCM to distribute advertising, business meeting, and Fathom event services under long-term exhibitor services agreements (“ESAs”) with American Multi-Cinema, Inc. (“AMC”), a wholly owned subsidiary of AMC Entertainment Inc. (“AMCE”), Regal Cinemas, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Regal Entertainment Group (“Regal”), and Cinemark USA, Inc. (“Cinemark USA”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Cinemark Holdings, Inc. (“Cinemark”). AMC, Regal and Cinemark and their affiliates are referred to in this document as “founding members”. NCM LLC also provides such services to certain third-party theater circuits under Network Affiliate Agreements which expire at various dates.
     NCM LLC was formed through the combination of the operations of National Cinema Network, Inc. (“NCN”), a wholly owned subsidiary of AMCE, and Regal CineMedia Corporation (“RCM”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Regal. In accordance with the Contribution and Unit Holders Agreement entered into on that date by NCM LLC, NCN, and RCM, 16,387,670 units were issued to NCN and 27,903,330 units were issued to Regal CineMedia Holdings, LLC (“RCM Holdings”) in exchange for the contribution of $0.9 million of cash and other assets, net of liabilities assumed. All assets contributed to and liabilities assumed by NCM LLC were recorded on NCM LLC’s records in the amounts as reflected on the Members’ historic accounting records, based on the application of accounting principles for the formation of a joint venture under Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) 98-4, Accounting by a Joint Venture for Businesses Received at its Formation. Although legally structured as a limited liability company, NCM LLC was considered a joint venture for accounting purposes given the joint control provisions of the operating agreement among the members, consistent with Accounting Principles Board (“APB”) Opinion No. 18, The Equity Method of Accounting for Investments in Common Stock.
     On July 15, 2005, in exchange for a cash contribution of $7.3 million, 11,559,951 units were issued to Cinemark Media, Inc. (“Cinemark Media”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Cinemark USA, Inc.
     As the result of final adjustments to the valuations attributed to the contributed assets and liabilities resulting from AMCE’s merger on December 23, 2004, with Marquee Holdings Inc., NCN contributed additional cash to NCM LLC during 2006, which was then distributed to RCM Holdings and Cinemark Media, thus having no impact on the assets and liabilities of NCM LLC.
     On February 13, 2007, National CineMedia, Inc. (“NCM, Inc.” or “managing member”), a Company formed by NCM LLC and incorporated in the State of Delaware with the sole purpose of becoming a member and sole manager of NCM, LLC, closed its initial public offering (“IPO”). NCM, Inc. used the net proceeds from the IPO to purchase a 44.8% interest in NCM LLC, paying NCM LLC $746.1 million, which included reimbursement to NCM LLC for expenses it advanced related to the NCM, Inc. IPO and paying the founding members $78.5 million for a portion of the NCM LLC units owned by them. NCM LLC paid $686.3 million of the funds received from NCM, Inc. to the founding members as consideration for their agreement to modify the then-existing ESAs. Proceeds received by NCM LLC from NCM, Inc. of $59.8 million, together with $709.7 million net proceeds from NCM LLC’s new senior secured credit facility (see Note 7) entered into concurrently with the completion of NCM, Inc.’s IPO were used to redeem $769.5 million in NCM LLC preferred units held by the founding members. The preferred units were created immediately prior to the NCM, Inc. IPO in a non-cash recapitalization of each membership unit into one common unit and one preferred unit. Immediately prior to this non-cash recapitalization, the existing common units and employee unit options (see Note 8) were split on a 44,291-to-1 basis. All unit and per unit amounts in these financial statements reflect the impact of this split. At December 27, 2007, NCM LLC had 93,850,951 membership units outstanding, of which 42,000,000 (44.8%) were owned by NCM, Inc., 21,230,712 (22.6%) were owned by RCM, 17,474,890 (18.6%) were owned by AMC, and 13,145,349 (14.0%) were owned by Cinemark.
     In connection with the completion of the NCM, Inc.’s IPO, NCM, Inc. and the founding members entered into a third amended and restated limited liability company operating agreement of NCM LLC (“LLC Operating Agreement”). Under the LLC Operating Agreement, NCM, Inc. became a member and the sole manager of NCM LLC. As the sole manager, NCM, Inc. is able to control all of the day to day business affairs and decision-making of NCM LLC without the approval of any other member. NCM, Inc. cannot be removed as manager of NCM LLC. NCM LLC entered into a management services agreement with NCM, Inc. pursuant to which NCM, Inc. agrees to provide certain specific management services to NCM LLC, including those services typically provided by the individuals serving in the positions of president and chief executive officer, president of sales and chief marketing officer, executive vice president

and chief financial officer, executive vice president and chief technology and operations officer and executive vice president and general counsel. In exchange for the services, NCM LLC reimburses NCM, Inc. for compensation and other expenses of the officers and for certain out-of-pocket costs (see Note 6). NCM LLC also provides administrative and support services to NCM, Inc. such as office facilities, equipment, supplies, payroll and accounting and financial reporting. The management services agreement also provides that NCM LLC employees may participate in the NCM, Inc. equity incentive plan (see Note 8). NCM LLC will indemnify NCM Inc. for any losses arising from NCM Inc.’s performance under the management services agreement, except that NCM Inc. will indemnify NCM LLC for any losses caused by NCM Inc.’s willful misconduct or gross negligence.
     Under the amended and restated ESAs with the founding members, subject to limited exceptions, NCM LLC is the exclusive provider of advertising services to the founding members for a 30-year term (with a five-year right of first refusal commencing one year before the end of the term) and meetings and event services to the founding members for an initial five-year term, with an automatic five-year renewal providing certain financial tests are met. In exchange for the right to provide these services to the founding members, NCM LLC is required to pay to the founding members a theatre access fee which is a specified calculation based on the attendance at the founding member theatres and the number of digital screens in founding member theatres. Prior to the NCM, Inc. IPO, NCM LLC paid to the founding members a percentage of NCM LLC’s advertising revenue as advertising circuit share. Upon the completion of the NCM, Inc. IPO, the founding members assigned to NCM LLC all “legacy contracts”, which are generally contracts for advertising sold by the founding members prior to the formation of NCM LLC but which were unfulfilled at the date of formation. In addition, the founding members made additional time available for sale by NCM LLC, subject to a first right to purchase the time, if needed, by the founding members to fulfill advertising obligations with their in-theatre beverage concessionaries. NCM, Inc. also entered into employment agreements with five executive officers to carry out obligations entered into pursuant to a management services agreement between NCM, Inc. and NCM LLC.
     Basis of Presentation
     The financial statements contained herein were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The results of operations for the period ended December 27, 2007 are presented in two periods, reflecting operations prior to and subsequent to the NCM, Inc. IPO. The period from December 29, 2006 through February 12, 2007 is referred to as the “2007 pre-IPO period”. The period from February 13, 2007 through December 27, 2007 is referred to as the “2007 post-IPO period”. Separate periods have been presented because there were significant changes at the time of the IPO of NCM, Inc. due to the ESA modifications and related expenses thereunder, and significant changes to revenue arrangements and contracts with the founding members.
     The financial statements for both the 2007 pre-IPO period and 2007 post-IPO period give effect to allocations of revenues and expenses made using relative percentages of founding member attendance or days in each period, discrete events and other methods management considered to be a reasonable reflection of the results for such periods.
     The Company has established various accounting policies that govern the application of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America in the preparation and presentation of NCM LLC’s financial statements. Certain accounting policies involve significant judgments, assumptions and estimates by management that have a material impact on the carrying value of certain assets and liabilities, which management considers critical accounting policies. The judgments, assumptions and estimates used by management are based on historical experience, knowledge of the accounts and other factors, which are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances and are evaluated on an ongoing basis. Because of the nature of the judgments and assumptions made by management, actual results could differ from these judgments and estimates, which could have a material impact on the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the results of operations of NCM LLC. As a result of the various related-party agreements discussed above and in Note 6, the operating results as presented are not necessarily indicative of the results that would have occurred if all agreements were with non-related third parties.
     The founding members received all of the proceeds NCM LLC received from NCM, Inc. at the date of NCM, Inc.’s IPO and the related issuance of debt, except for amounts needed to pay out-of-pocket costs of the financings and other expenses, and $10.0 million to repay outstanding amounts under NCM LLC’s then-existing revolving line of credit agreement. In conformity with accounting guidance of Securities and Exchange Commission concerning monetary consideration paid to promoters, such as the founding members, in exchange for property conveyed by the promoters and because the founding members had no cost basis in the ESAs, all payments to the founding members with the proceeds of the managing member’s IPO and related debt issuance, amounting to approximately $1.456 billion, have been accounted for as distributions, except for the payments to liquidate accounts payable to the founding members arising from the ESAs.

     Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
     Accounting Period—The Company operates on a 52-week fiscal year, with the fiscal year ending on the first Thursday after December 25, which, in certain years, results in a 53-week year.
     Revenue Recognition—Advertising revenue and administrative fees from legacy contracts are recognized in the period in which an advertising contract is fulfilled against the contracted theatre attendees. Advertising revenue is recorded net of make-good provisions to account for delivered attendance that is less than contracted attendance. When remaining delivered attendance is provided, that portion of the revenue earned is recognized in that period. Deferred revenue refers to the unearned portion of advertising contracts. All deferred revenue is classified as a current liability. M
