Imax Signs Record Intl Theater Deal In Encore To AMC Pact
3:45 PM EDT March 10, 2008

By Andy Georgiades

TORONTO (Dow Jones)--Imax Corp.'s (IMAX) 35-theater deal with RACIMEC International Group of Brazil, its biggest international theater-system pact to date, may have been a lot smaller if not for the 100-system deal with AMC Entertainment.
"We were discussing a much-smaller deal with them, but when they saw the AMC deal and they saw how quickly these zones could go away with the stroke of a pen, they came to us and said 'Let's do a much larger deal,' " said Imax co-Chief Executive Richard Gelfond.
Imax, known for its large-format film screens, appears to have the wind at its back. Its new digital-projection system, which isn't scheduled to be rolled out until later this year, has already yielded two mega deals: a 100-theater deal with AMC in the U.S. in December, and now a 35-theater deal with RACIMEC for the South and Central America region.
Gelfond wouldn't comment on the pact's value, but a person familiar with the deal said it could be worth more than $40 million, plus $3.5 million a year in recurring revenue once all the theaters are open.
The RACIMEC pact, which calls for the theaters to be installed by the end of 2014, will give Imax a big boost in the area, where it has three Imax theaters open and another seven in backlog. In 2005, Imax signed a deal with the company for three theaters, two in Chile and one in Venezuela, all of which are expected to open in mid-2009.
Gelfond said South America wasn't a region where Imax intended to sign joint-venture theater arrangements, in which Imax gives the system in return for a slice of the box-office revenue, so finding a partner willing to "put up the capital and build out that area quickly" is beneficial to the company.
As a developer, RACIMEC will do deals with exhibitors and mall operators and develop that market, Gelfond explained.
Separately, Gelfond said the company is on track with its plans for digital, which calls for the first three systems to be installed by the end of June, three more a month later, and a broader rollout beginning late in the third quarter.
He confirmed a trade report that said Imax is in negotiations with Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN) to use its DLP (digital light processing) chips in Imax's digital projector. "I confirm that we're in detailed negotiations and I would expect an announcement shortly," he said.
On Nasdaq Monday, Imax is up 16 cents to $6.50 on 88,000 shares. It traded as high as $6.91 earlier in the session.

Imax, Regal Cinemas in Joint Venture Deal to Put Imax Digital Systems in Some Theaters

NEW YORK (AP) -- Imax Corp. and Regal Cinemas Inc. said Monday they signed a joint venture deal that will put 31 Imax digital systems in 20 of Regal's U.S. locations.
Both companies will share the costs and profits of the new theaters.

The new agreement will give Regal 38 theaters with Imax digital systems and creates 52 Regal-operated Imax theaters by the end of 2010.

The first theaters under the new deal are set to open in November prior to the Nov. 21 debut of "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince: The Imax Experience."

Toronto-based Imax makes large-screen movie systems. Regal Cinemas is a unit of movie theater operator Regal Entertainment Group.

nice move today back over 7 again. good buy on dips. financing for their 100's of theater intstall in place now..

IMAX Corp. (IMAX) has entered into two financing transactions largely to fund its digital projection roll-out, scheduled to start in the summer.
The Toronto film-presentation company said one financing is with Wachovia Capital Finance Corp. to increase future availability and modify other terms under its existing credit facility. It said the other financing is with the Douglas family, IMAX's largest shareholder, for the sale of about 2.73 million common shares in a private placement for $18 million.
It said Wachovia has extended IMAX's credit facility to Oct. 31, 2010, removes an EBITDA maintenance covenant if the company maintains certain minimum liquidity requirements, and is likely to increase the company's borrowing base.
It said the placement was made at $6.60 a share. The company said the Douglas family will own 19.9% of IMAX shares after the placement and has agreed to a five-year standstill whereby it will refrain from certain activities, such as increasing its percentage ownership and entering into various arrangements with the company, such as fundamental or change-of-control transactions.

IMAX Corp (IMAX) Announces Theatre Installation Joint Venture
8:00 am ET 04/20/2010 - StreetInsider
IMAX Corporation (Nasdaq: IMAX) and Tokyu Recreation today announced a new joint venture agreement to install five digital IMAX theatre systems in Japan. The agreement builds on the success of IMAX's current joint venture partnership with the exhibitor, which includes four IMAX theatres that were installed in 2009. Those existing IMAX screens have posted consistently strong box office performance with Hollywood IMAX releases, including Twentieth Century Fox's Avatar, which grossed $8 million on the four Tokyu IMAX screens.For the release of Avatar, the 109 Cinemas IMAX location in Kawasaki ranked as Japan's highest grossing screen. The three other Tokyu IMAX screens in Nagoya, Minoh and Shobu have shown significant improvements on their national rankings since their IMAX systems were installed. Disney's Alice in Wonderland opened on Saturday in Japan, setting a new Japanese IMAX box office record, with the four Tokyu IMAX screens generating a total of $335,882 in only 2 days.

Under the terms of the new deal, five new IMAX systems are scheduled to be installed in 109 Cinemas locations by June 2012, with the first two expected to be installed in November 2010 in the greater Tokyo area. The deal brings the total number of IMAX commercial multiplex theatres in Japan to nine, up from the four that are currently open. IMAX believes that its presence in Japan could grow significantly larger over time.

As with the previous joint venture agreement, IMAX and Tokyu Recreation will share the cost and profitability of the new theatres. Each theatre will be equipped with IMAX's new digital projection system.

IMAX Chief Executive Office Richard L. Gelfond joined executives from Tokyu Recreation in Tokyo, Japan to announce the new theatre signings.

"The performance of our four joint venture IMAX theatres has been very strong, increasing our market share and delivering an incredible consumer experience that is simply the best way to see event films," said Hitoshi Sato, President of Tokyu Recreation. "We are pleased to further our commitment to IMAX by adding five new theatres that will serve even more consumers in key markets throughout Japan. IMAX is an important and valuable partner for our company and we look forward to even more financial and operational success together."

"We are very excited to build on the success of our four current joint venture theatres with Tokyu Recreation, our first major exhibition partner in Japan, one of the most important entertainment markets in the world," said Mr. Gelfond. "Our Tokyu joint venture theatres are among our highest performing IMAX locations, and this success, combined with being associated with a top Japanese exhibition brand, is contributing significantly to the increased visibility of our own brand with consumers and exhibitors in the market."
