Upfront advertising tracking towards strong finish at 85% of the historical average

CENTENNIAL, Colo.National CineMedia, Inc. (NASDAQ: NCMI) (the Company), the managing member and owner of 47.5% of National CineMedia, LLC (NCM LLC), the operator of the largest cinema advertising network reaching movie audiences in the U.S., announced today consolidated results for the fiscal third quarter ended September 29, 2022.

Q3 2022 Results

Total revenue for the third quarter ended September 29, 2022 increased 71.9% to $54.5 million as compared to $31.7 million for the comparable quarter last year. Operating loss improved to $4.2 million for the third quarter of 2022 from operating loss of $18.7 million for the third quarter of 2021. Adjusted OIBDA, a non-GAAP measure, improved to $7.0 million for the third quarter of 2022 from negative $8.2 million for the third quarter of 2021. Net loss for the third quarter of 2022 was $8.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $15.2 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2021. As adjusted to exclude the loss on the re-measurement of the payable to founding members under the tax receivable agreement and advisor fees related to the Cineworld proceeding, net loss per diluted share for the quarter ended September 29, 2022 would have decreased to $0.13 per diluted share and net loss per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, would have remained the same. Adjusted OIBDA, adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per share are non-GAAP measures. See the tables at the end of this release for the reconciliations to the closest GAAP basis measurements.

Total revenue for the nine months ended September 29, 2022 increased 208.2% to $157.5 million as compared to $51.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Operating loss improved to $21.2 million for the nine months ended September 29, 2022 from $76.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Adjusted OIBDA, a non-GAAP measure, improved to $15.2 million for the nine months ended September 29, 2022 from negative $43.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Net loss for the nine months ended September 29, 2022 was $34.8 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $57.3 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. As adjusted to exclude the impairment of long-lived assets, loss on the re-measurement of the payable to founding members under the tax receivable agreement, advisor fees related to the Cineworld proceeding and sales force reorganization costs, net loss per diluted share for the nine months ended September 29, 2022 would have increased to $0.33 per diluted share and net loss per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 would have remained the same. Adjusted OIBDA, adjusted net loss and adjusted loss per share are non-GAAP measures. See the tables at the end of this release for the reconciliations to the closest GAAP basis measurements.

NATIONAL CINEMEDIA, INC.
Non-GAAP Reconciliations
Unaudited

Adjusted OIBDA and Adjusted OIBDA Margin

Adjusted Operating Income Before Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted OIBDA”) and Adjusted OIBDA margin are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP in the United States. Adjusted OIBDA represents operating income (loss) before depreciation expense adjusted to also exclude amortization of intangibles recorded for network theater screen leases and non-cash share-based compensation costs, impairment of long-lived assets, advisor fees related to the Cineworld proceeding and certain sales force reorganization costs. Adjusted OIBDA margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted OIBDA by total revenue. Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate operating performance, to forecast future results and as a basis for compensation. The Company believes these are important supplemental measures of operating performance because they eliminate items that have less bearing on its operating performance and so highlight trends in its core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures. The Company believes the presentation of these measures is relevant and useful for investors because it enables them to view performance in a manner similar to the method used by the Company’s management, helps improve their ability to understand the Company’s operating performance and makes it easier to compare the Company’s results with other companies that may have different depreciation policies, amortization of intangibles recorded for network theater screen leases, non-cash share based compensation programs, costs related to sales force reorganization, impairments of long-lived assets, advisor fees related to the Cineworld proceeding, executive transition costs, interest rates, debt levels or income tax rates. A limitation of these measures, however, is that they exclude depreciation and amortization of intangibles recorded for network theater screen leases, which represent a proxy for the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues in the Company’s business. In addition, Adjusted OIBDA has the limitation of not reflecting the effect of the Company’s share-based payment costs, impairments of long-lived assets, costs related to sales force reorganization, executive transition costs or advisor fees related to the Cineworld proceeding. Adjusted OIBDA should not be regarded as an alternative to operating income, net income or as an indicator of operating performance, nor should it be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that operating income (loss) is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to Adjusted OIBDA. Because not all companies use identical calculations, these non-GAAP presentations may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies, or calculations in the Company’s debt agreement.

The Company has not provided a reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP Adjusted OIBDA measure to forward-looking GAAP operating income due to the inability to predict the amount and timing of impacts outside of the Company’s control, such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, on certain items, including the timing of revenue and charges reflected in our reconciliation of historic numbers, the amount of which, based on historical experience, could be significant and are difficult to reasonably predict. Accordingly, a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable effort.

Adjusted Net Loss and Loss per Share

Adjusted net loss and loss per share are not financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP in the United States. Adjusted net loss and loss per share are calculated using reported net loss and loss per share and exclude the sales force reorganization costs, impairment of long-lived assets and loss on re-measurement of the payable to the founding members under the tax receivable agreement. Our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures as an additional tool to evaluate operating performance. The Company believes these are important supplemental measures of operating performance because they eliminate items that have less bearing on its operating performance and so highlight trends in its core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures. The Company believes the presentation of these measures is relevant and useful for investors because it enables them to view performance in a manner similar to a method used by the Company’s management and helps improve their ability to understand the Company’s operating performance. Adjusted net loss and loss per share should not be regarded as alternatives to net loss and loss per share or as indicators of operating performance, nor should they be considered in isolation of, or as substitutes for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that net loss and loss per share are the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Because not all companies use identical calculations, these presentations may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

The following table reconciles as reported net loss and loss per share to adjusted net loss and loss per share excluding the impairment of long-lived assets, sales force reorganization costs, executive transition costs, advisor fees related to the Cineworld proceeding and loss on re-measurement of the payable to founding members under the tax receivable agreement for the periods presented (dollars in millions):
