LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cinedigm Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM) today announced financial results for the second quarter Fiscal Year 2018, which ended September 30, 2017.

Financial Summary

Results for Second Quarter 2018:

  • Consolidated revenues were $16.3 million
  • Content and Entertainment revenues were $6.3 million
  • Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was $5.9 million
  • Consolidated debt reduction for the quarter and year to date is $17.9 million and $24.8 million respectively

Second Quarter Highlights

  • Subsequent to quarter end, on November 1st Cinedigm closed the previously announced Bison Capital investment in Cinedigm. Bison Capital now beneficially owns a majority of the outstanding Class A Common Stock
  • Also subsequent to quarter end, in the first week of November, the Company eliminated the entire remaining approximately $46.8 million in convertible notes on the balance sheet, completing the full retirement of all of the $64.0 million in notes existing a year ago
  • During the quarter, the Company paid down nearly $8.1 million in non-recourse debt related to the Digital Cinema business, for the year $15.0 million
  • The Company announced plans to significantly extend the availability of its fast-growing OTT services by supporting Google's Chromecast and Android TV Platforms, as well as Amazon Fire TV for the first time, expanding reach by over 60+ million potential consumers
  • The Company's OTT group has focused on completing a substantial upgrade of technical and distribution infrastructure to support three imminent deals with major MVPDs and Telcos, which are expected to go live in the second half of Fiscal Year 2018
  • The Company announced the launch of Dove KIDS, a 24/7 Programmed Children's Network featuring children's movies, television series, animation, and educational programming geared at kids 5-12 years of age
  • The Company closed a significant distribution deal to embed our OTT Networks with a "top three" CE Device manufacturer. The deal will afford us critical placement usually only available to companies like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu, and reflects the rising consumer value manufacturers, telcos, and MSOs are placing on our portfolio of channels
  • The Company launched The Dove Channel on the Amazon Fire TV platform, which according to eMarketer, has a reach of over 39 million viewers a month
  • The Company made the first international launch of their OTT business by bringing the Dove channel into Canada on iOS and Android, and subsequent to quarter end, on Roku
  • Subsequent to quarter end, the Company announced Dove Channel is now available on Android TV. The launch expands Dove's presence on Android TV's fast growing ecosystem of connected televisions and set top boxes, with an estimated install base of over 28 million devices
  • Last week, the Company announced it has rolled out a 24/7 channel of its OTT service CONtv on the popular social video service Twitch. The new Twitch channel (www.twitch.tv/CONtv) reflects Cinedigm's ongoing commitment to redefining the television viewing experience by providing viewers with both a "lean-back" and a curated on-demand option

"We are very pleased to have completed the game-changing Bison transaction on November 1, 2017," said Chris McGurk, Cinedigm Chairman and CEO. "Bison's investment has already strengthened our balance sheet and provided capital for growth. Looking ahead, we plan to further enhance our balance sheet, reducing high interest debt and annual interest expense while increasing liquidity. Strategically, the Bison investment will be the catalyst to create a unique competitive position for Cinedigm as a key independent content studio in both North America and China, the world's largest and fastest growing major entertainment markets, respectively. Cinedigm will be strongly positioned to take advantage of the booming OTT business, the fastest growing entertainment distribution channel."

"With the Bison closing now behind us, we can turn our attention to optimizing and leveraging our new strategic relationship with them in China, the U.S. and across other international territories," said Jeffrey Edell, Chief Financial Officer. "Our much improved balance sheet with greatly reduced debt leverage now positions us nicely to take advantage of content and distribution opportunities worldwide as we move from a seasonally slow period into our highest sales quarter. We look forward to further enhancements to our balance sheet as we plan on reducing higher interest loans to continue freeing up additional cash flows to invest in our various business initiatives while we continue aggressively managing our cost structure."

Adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company for the periods presented to be earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, other income, net, goodwill impairment, litigation related expenses and recoveries, stock-based compensation and expenses, restructuring, transition and acquisitions expenses, net, and certain other items. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation in the tables attached to this release of loss from continuing operations calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") to Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. The Company calculated and communicated Adjusted EBITDA in the tables because the Company's management believes it is of importance to investors and lenders by providing additional information with respect to the performance of its fundamental business activities. Management presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful supplement to net loss as an indicator of operating performance. Management also believes that Adjusted EBITDA is an industry-wide financial measure that is useful both to management and investors when evaluating the Company's performance and comparing our performance with the performance of our competitors. Management also uses adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes, as well as to evaluate the Company's performance because it believes that adjusted EBITDA more accurately reflects the Company's results, as it excludes certain items, such as stock-based compensation charges, that management believes are not indicative of the Company's operating performance. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a performance measure and not a liquidity measure. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to operating or net loss as an indicator of performance or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as an indicator of cash flows, in each case as determined in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of liquidity. In addition, adjusted EBITDA does not take into account changes in certain assets and liabilities as well as interest and income taxes that can affect cash flows. The Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may or may not be consistent with the calculation of this measure by other companies in the same industry. Investors should not view Adjusted EBITDA as an alternative to the GAAP operating measure of net income (loss). In addition, Adjusted EBITDA does not take into account changes in certain assets and liabilities as well as interest and income taxes that can affect cash flows. Management does not intend the presentation of these non-GAAP measures to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures should be read only in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
