Management Comments

“We are pleased that the third quarter marked a continuation of the strong performance we delivered in the first half of fiscal 2011,” said Michael V. Lewis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RealD. “Driven by an increasing 3D film slate and growing consumer demand for an immersive 3D visual experience, the 3D box office continued to expand in the third quarter of fiscal 2011. Our ability to garner over an estimated 80% of the domestic 3D box office and, we believe, an increasing share of the international 3D box office, serves as a testament to the superior technology and value proposition that RealD delivers to exhibitors. We look forward to enabling the continued growth of 3D cinema through the ongoing worldwide deployment of our premium RealD 3D cinema systems which deliver a distinctive and immersive 3D visual experience to consumers.”

Use of non-GAAP financial measures

To supplement RealD’s financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, RealD provides non-GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders and Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental measures of its performance. The company defines non-GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders as net income attributable to common stockholders excluding the impact of motion picture exhibitor option expense. The company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), plus net interest expense, income taxes and depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of share based compensation expense, exhibitor option expense and certain other items not considered indicative of the company’s core operating performance.

RealD presents non-GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders and Adjusted EBITDA in reporting its financial results to provide investors with additional tools to evaluate RealD’s operating results in a manner that focuses on what RealD’s management believes to be its ongoing business operations. RealD’s management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider any such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is used by management for planning purposes, including: the preparation of internal budgets, forecasts and strategic plans; in analyzing the effectiveness of business strategies; to evaluate potential acquisitions; in making compensation decisions; in communications with its Board of Directors concerning financial performance; and as part of the company’s credit agreement in which Adjusted EBITDA is used to measure compliance with certain covenants.
