Digiplex Chairman and CEO Bud Mayo stated, “At this stage of our corporate evolution we are first and foremost focused on achieving rapid screen growth through an opportunistic industry consolidation strategy with a goal of ultimately expanding our footprint to 100 theaters and 1000 screens located in the top 100 DMAs. We are actively seeking acquisitions of solid-performing theaters that we can make even better by capitalizing upon our unique expertise in operating on a digital cinema platform, including utilizing best practices in deploying alternative programming and social media to materially grow attendance, while also benefiting from on-screen advertising revenues, virtual print fee generation and overall operating efficiencies and enhanced economies of scale.

“At quarter-end, we completed the acquisition of a state-of-the-art, fully digital 12-plex theater based in Lisbon, CT, raising the Digiplex circuit screen count to 85. We also simultaneously announced the receipt of a five-year, $10 million senior secured term loan from Northlight Trust I. The proceeds from this loan were utilized to fund the Lisbon purchase, and to pay Barco, Inc. for digital projection systems that were previously installed in 48 of our PA-based auditoriums, with the balance covering fees and expenses associated with the loan and working capital.”
