"2012 was the best year on record for Cineplex," said Ellis Jacob, President and CEO, Cineplex Entertainment. "Total revenues of $1.1 billion increased 9.4% versus the prior year, and are the highest in the company's history. As compared to 2011, box office revenues of $638.3 million increased 10.6%, concession revenues of $329.3 million increased 12.9%, resulting in adjusted EBITDA of $200.5 million, an increase of 15.8% and net income of $120.5 million, an increase of 144.6%. Theatre attendance reached a new all-time high of 71.2 million, an increase of 7.8% versus 2011."

"In addition to a very strong financial performance, Cineplex completed a number of theatre projects including the opening of two new theatres - Cineplex Odeon Windermere and VIP Cinemas in Edmonton, and Galaxy Cinemas Pergola Commons, in south Guelph; Cineplex Odeon Brossard Cinemas was expanded adding four new VIP Cinema auditoriums; and Cineplex Odeon McGillivray and VIP Cinemas in Winnipeg, was opened following an extensive renovation and rebrand. We also acquired four AMC theatres - three in the GTA and one in Montreal. We completed the rollout of digital projection technology and added 16 UltraAVX auditoriums to bring our total to 39. Our digital commerce initiatives continued to advance with the addition of new digital content, devices and playback functionality and the launch of UltraViolet at the Cineplex Store. We achieved strong metrics on our website and mobile apps with significant growth in online and mobile ticket sales and the launch of e-gift cards. Our SCENE loyalty program added a record 900,000 new members to bring our total membership to 4.3 million. Cineplex's continued investment in the enhancement of the exhibition experience and the diversification of our business model contributed to the record year in 2012 and positions us well for the future."

EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow are not measures recognized by generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and do not have standardized meanings in accordance with such principles. Therefore, EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. EBITDA is calculated by adding back to net income, income tax expense, amortization and interest expense net of interest income. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by adjusting EBITDA for gains and losses on disposal of assets, gains on acquisition of businesses and the share of income or loss of the Canadian Digital Cinema Partnership ("CDCP"). Adjusted free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure generally used by Canadian corporations, as an indicator of financial performance and it should not be seen as a measure of liquidity or a substitute for comparable metrics prepared in accordance with GAAP. Management uses adjusted EBITDA and adjusted free cash flow to evaluate performance primarily because of the significant effect certain unusual or non-recurring charges and other items have on EBITDA from period to period. For a detailed reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA and from cash provided by operating activities to adjusted free cash flow, please refer to Cineplex's management's discussion and analysis filed on www.sedar.com.

The following describes certain key business initiatives undertaken during 2012 in each of Cineplex's core business areas:

THEATRE EXHIBITION

OPERATING RESULTS FOR THE FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR

Total revenues

Total revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2012 increased $57.0 million (23.6%) to $298.7 million as compared to the prior year period. Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased $93.7 million (9.4%) to $1.1 billion as compared to the prior year. Revenues for the current year periods were positively impacted by the acquisition of the four theatres from AMC during the third quarter of 2012 (revenues of $12.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and $21.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2012). A discussion of the factors affecting the changes in box office, concession and other revenues for the periods is provided on the following pages.

Box office revenues

The following table highlights the movement in box office revenues, attendance and BPP for the quarter and the full year (in thousands of Canadian dollars, except attendance reported in thousands of patrons, and per patron amounts, unless otherwise noted):

----------------------------------------------------------------------------Box office revenues Fourth Quarter Full Year 2012 2011 Change 2012 2011 Change----------------------------------------------------------------------------Box office revenues $170,524 $133,735 27.5% $638,296 $577,348 10.6%Attendance 18,577 15,070 23.3% 71,198 66,059 7.8%Box office revenue per patron $ 9.18 $ 8.87 3.5% $ 8.97 $ 8.74 2.6%BPP excluding premium priced product $ 8.57 $ 8.19 4.6% $ 8.26 $ 8.10 2.0%Canadian industry revenues (i) 18.0% 6.3%Same store box office revenues $160,495 $133,363 20.3% $616,857 $573,501 7.6%Same store attendance 17,573 15,026 17.0% 69,052 65,604 5.3%% Total box from 3D, UltraAVX, VIP & IMAX 29.2% 30.2% -1.0% 30.9% 29.4% 1.5%----------------------------------------------------------------------------(i) The Motion Picture Theatre Associations of Canada ("MPTAC") reported that the Canadian exhibition industry reported a box office revenue increase of 16.7% for the period from September 28, 2012 to December 27, 2012 as compared to the period from September 30, 2011 to December 29, 2011. On a basis consistent with Cineplex's calendar reporting period (October 1 to December 31), the Canadian industry box office revenue increase is estimated to be 18.0%. MPTAC reported that the Canadian exhibition industry reported a box office revenue increase of 5.6% for the period from December 30, 2011 to December 27, 2012 as compared to the period from December 31, 2010 to December 29, 2011. On a basis consistent with Cineplex's calendar reporting period (January 1 to December 31), the Canadian industry box office revenue is estimated to be an increase of 6.3%.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Box office continuity Fourth Quarter Full Year Box Attendance Box Attendance Office Office----------------------------------------------------------------------------2011 as reported $133,735 15,070 $577,348 66,059Same store attendance change 22,610 2,547 30,149 3,449Impact of same store BPP change 4,522 - 13,208 -New and acquired theatres 10,029 1004 19,502 1,935Disposed and closed theatres (372) (44) (1,911) (245)----------------------------------------------------------------------------2012 as reported $170,524 18,577 $638,296 71,198----------------------------------------------------------------------------Fourth Quarter----------------------------------------------------------------------------Fourth Quarter 2012 Top Fourth Quarter 2011 Top IMAX 3D% Box Cineplex Films IMAX 3D % Box Cineplex Films----------------------------------------------------------------------------1 Skyfall X 15.2% 1 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn 1 9.4%2 The Hobbit: An 2 Mission: Impossible - Unexpected Journey X X 10.6% Ghost Protocol X 6.1%3 The Twilight Saga: 3 Puss in Boots X X 6.0% Breaking Dawn 2 X 8.0% X 5.4% 4 Sherlock Holmes: A4 Wreck-It Ralph Game of Shadows 5.2%5 Hotel Transylvania X 4.7% 5 Immortals X 4.3%----------------------------------------------------------------------------



Box office revenues increased $36.8 million, or 27.5%, to $170.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $133.7 million recorded in the same period in 2011. The increase was primarily due to a 23.3% increase in attendance as a result of the strong slate of films in the current quarter compared to the prior year period, as well as the impact of the four theatres acquired from AMC in the third quarter of 2012. The $170.5 million in box office revenues is a quarterly record for Cineplex, exceeding the previous record of $162.5 million reported in the third quarter of 2011.

BPP increased 3.5% from $8.87 in the fourth quarter of 2011 to $9.18 in the current year period. Three of the top five releases during the period were screened in 3D and three in IMAX, compared to two of the top releases in the prior year period shown in 3D and two in IMAX. Outside of the top five, there were more 3D releases in the 2011 period which contributed to the percentage of box office from premium-priced product (3D, UltraAVX, IMAX and VIP), decreasing from 30.2% in the prior year period to 29.2% in the current quarter. The four theatres acquired from AMC which are located in major metropolitan areas and have higher ticket prices than those in smaller markets contributed to the higher BPP, as well as the composition of the film slate which featured less product catering to children in the current year period compared to the prior year, also increasing the BPP.

Full Year----------------------------------------------------------------------------Full Year 2012 Top Full Year 2011 Top Cineplex Films IMAX 3D % Box Cineplex Films IMAX 3D % Box----------------------------------------------------------------------------1 Marvel's The Avengers X X 5.7% 1 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2 X X 4.4%2 The Dark Knight Rises X 4.5% 2 Transformers: Dark of the Moon X X 3.3%3 Skyfall X 4.1% 3 Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides X X 2.5%4 The Hunger Games X 3.8% 4 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn 1 2.2%5 The Amazing Spider- 5 The Hangover 2 2.1% Man X X 2.8%----------------------------------------------------------------------------



Box office revenues for 2012 were $638.3 million or 10.6% higher than the prior year period, and represent an annual record for Cineplex. The strong performance of the four major blockbusters released in 2012 (Marvel's The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, Skyfall and The Hunger Games) were the main contributors to the $60.9 million increase in box office revenue during the year. These four blockbusters were all released at different times during the year with one opening in each quarter, contributing to Cineplex's record annual attendance. The acquisition of the four theatres from AMC during the third quarter of 2012 also contributed to the box office revenue increase in the current year period.

Cineplex's BPP for 2012 increased $0.23, or 2.6%, from $8.74 in 2011 to $8.97, an annual record. This increase was primarily due to the increase in revenues from premium-priced product. Premium-priced offerings accounted for 30.9% of Cineplex's box office revenues in the 2012, compared to 29.4% in the prior year. The top five films in the 2012 period were all screened in IMAX and two in 3D (2011 - three in IMAX and three in 3D).

Cineplex's investment in premium-priced formats over the last four years has positioned it to take advantage of the price premiums offered in these formats, which has contributed to Cineplex's BPP growth in the current period compared to the prior year period. This investment in premium-priced offerings was a key factor resulting in Cineplex outperforming the Canadian industry box office revenue growth during 2012.

Concession revenues

The following table highlights the movement in concession revenues, attendance and CPP for the quarter and the full year (in thousands of Canadian dollars, except attendance and same store attendance reported in thousands of patrons, and per patron amounts):

----------------------------------------------------------------------------Concession revenues Fourth Quarter Full Year 2012 2011 Change 2012 2011 Change----------------------------------------------------------------------------Concession revenues $ 86,409 $68,161 26.8% $329,332 $291,638 12.9%Attendance 18,577 15,070 23.3% 71,198 66,059 7.8%Concession revenue per patron $ 4.65 $ 4.52 2.9% $ 4.63 $ 4.41 5.0%Same store concession revenues $ 82,358 $68,043 21.0% $319,637 $290,076 10.2%Same store attendance 17,573 15,026 17.0% 69,052 65,604 5.3%--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Concession revenue continuity Fourth Quarter Full Year Concession Attendance Concession Attendance----------------------------------------------------------------------------2011 as reported $ 68,161 15,070 $ 291,638 66,059Same store attendance change 11,535 2,547 15,249 3,449Impact of same store CPP change 2,780 - 14,312 -New and acquired theatres 4,051 1,004 8,795 1,935Disposed and closed theatres (118) (44) (662) (245)----------------------------------------------------------------------------2012 as reported $ 86,409 18,577 $ 329,332 71,198----------------------------------------------------------------------------



Fourth Quarter

Concession revenues increased 26.8% as compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to the 23.3% increase in attendance. CPP increased from $4.52 in the fourth quarter of 2011 to $4.65 in the same period in 2012, a 2.9% increase and a quarterly record for Cineplex, a fourth quarter record. Cineplex believes a focus on revised concession offerings, its RBO program and improved product promotion through the expansion of a digital menu board program have all contributed to the higher CPP in the current period compared to the prior year period.

Full Year

Concession revenues increased 12.9% as compared to the prior year period, due to the 7.8% increase in attendance and the 5.0% increase in CPP. CPP increased from $4.41 in 2011 to $4.63 in 2012. This represents an annual CPP record for Cineplex, $0.22 higher than the previous record from 2011.

While the 10% SCENE discount and SCENE points issued on concession combo purchases reduce individual transaction values which impacts CPP, Cineplex believes that this program drives incremental visits and concession purchases, resulting in higher overall concession revenues.

Other revenues

The following table highlights the movement in media, games and other revenues for the quarter and the full year (in thousands of Canadian dollars):

----------------------------------------------------------------------------Other revenues Fourth Quarter Full Year 2012 2011 Change 2012 2011 Change----------------------------------------------------------------------------Media $ 30,980 $ 28,667 8.1% $ 84,870 $ 91,242 -7.0%Games 1,361 2,128 -36.0% 6,379 7,584 -15.9%Other 9,416 8,997 4.7% 32,989 30,383 8.6%----------------------------------------------------------------------------Total $ 41,757 $ 39,792 4.9% $ 124,238 $ 129,209 -3.8%----------------------------------------------------------------------------



Fourth Quarter

Other revenues increased 4.9% to $41.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the prior year period. This increase was due to higher media revenues, which were $31.0 million, up $2.3 million, or 8.1%, when compared to the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to higher CDM revenues ($2.9 million), partially offset by decreases in other media categories. In addition to expanding its ongoing digital network management contracts, CDM completed several large equipment installation projects in the fourth quarter of 2012.

The games revenue decrease is due to the formation of CSI on January 31, 2012, with the acquisition by NWS of the gaming business of SCM. With the creation of the CSI joint venture, revenues from CSI are included in the 'Share of loss of joint ventures' line in the Statements of Operations. The games revenues for the fourth quarter of 2011 include the results of NWS ($0.9 million). The addition of four new XSCAPE entertainment centres since the fourth quarter of 2011 partially offset the decrease in games revenue due to the creation of CSI in the first quarter of 2012 and the reclassification of the NWS revenue to the share of loss of joint ventures line on the statements of operations. Other revenues increased primarily due to increased revenues from enhanced guest service initiatives and auditorium rentals, partially offset by lower breakage revenues.

Full Year

Other revenues decreased 3.8% from $129.2 million in 2011 to $124.2 million during 2012. Media revenues for 2012 decreased $6.4 million, or 7.0%, from the prior year period. Declines in Cineplex's media business were due in part to the challenging media environment prevalent during the first half of 2012, partially offset by a 6.1% increase in media revenues in the second half of 2012. Cineplex enjoys strong relationships with a number of national advertisers and during the first half of the year the reduction in campaigns from three major categories of these advertisers contributed to the decrease in media revenues. CDM continued to report growth in revenues, increasing from $10.8 million in 2011 to $13.7 million in 2012.

The decrease in games revenue was due to the impact of the acquisition of NWS and the subsequent formation of CSI. The results of NWS are included in the comparative period for May to December 2011 (following its acquisition in May 2011) and for January 2012 (prior to the formation of CSI described above - $0.4 million for the 2012 period and $2.5 million for the 2011 period). This decrease was partially offset by the impact of the four new XSCAPE entertainment centres added since the fourth quarter of 2011 as well as the higher attendance in the current year period bringing more games traffic through the theatres. The increase in the other category is primarily due to higher auditorium rental and screening revenues as well as additional revenue arising from enhanced guest service initiatives.

Film cost

The following table highlights the movement in film cost and the film cost percentage for the quarter and the full year (in thousands of Canadian dollars, except film cost percentage):

---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Film cost Fourth Quarter Full Year 2012 2011 Change 2012 2011 Change----------------------------------------------------------------------------Film cost $ 87,477 $ 68,757 27.2% $ 331,281 $ 299,404 10.6%Film cost percentage 51.3% 51.4% -0.1% 51.9% 51.9% NM----------------------------------------------------------------------------



Fourth Quarter

Film cost varies primarily with box office revenue, and can vary from quarter to quarter based on the relative strength of the titles exhibited during the period. The increase in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the prior year period was due to the increase in box office revenue, partially offset by the impact of the 0.1% decrease in film cost percentage. The decrease in film cost percentage is primarily due to the settlement rate on certain strong performing titles during the fourth quarter of 2012 being lower than the average film settlement rate in the 2011 period.

Full Year

The year to date increase in film cost was due to the 10.6% increase in box office revenues. The film cost percentage was the same for both 2012 and 2011.

Cost of concessions

The following table highlights the movement in concession cost and concession cost as a percentage of concession revenues ("concession cost percentage") for the quarter and the full year (in thousands of Canadian dollars, except concession cost percentage and concession margin per patron):

----------------------------------------------------------------------------Cost of concessions Fourth Quarter Full Year 2012 2011 Change 2012 2011 Change----------------------------------------------------------------------------Concession cost $ 18,077 $ 14,015 29.0% $ 68,398 $ 60,737 12.6%Concession cost percentage 20.9% 20.6% 0.3% 20.8% 20.8% NMConcession margin per patron $ 3.68 $ 3.59 2.5% $ 3.66 $ 3.50 4.6%----------------------------------------------------------------------------



Fourth Quarter

Cost of concessions varies primarily with theatre attendance as well as the quantity and mix of concession offerings sold. The increase in concession cost as compared to the prior year period was due to the 26.8% increase in concession revenues and the 0.3% increase in the concession cost percentage during the period. The concession margin per patron increased from $3.59 in the fourth quarter of 2011 to $3.68 in the same period in 2012, reflecting the impact of the higher CPP during the period.

Full Year

The increase in concession cost during the period was due to the 12.9% increase in concession revenues. The concession cost percentage was 20.8% in each of the years.

Despite the 10% discount offered to SCENE members and SCENE points offered on select combo offerings, which contributes to a higher concession cost percentage, Cineplex believes the SCENE program drives incremental attendance and purchase incidence which increases concession revenues and CPP.

Depreciation and amortization

The following table highlights the movement in depreciation and amortization expenses during the quarter and the full year (in thousands of Canadian dollars):

----------------------------------------------------------------------------Amortization expenses Fourth Quarter Full Year 2012 2011 Change 2012 2011 Change----------------------------------------------------------------------------Amortization of property, equipment and leaseholds $13,412 $14,571 -8.0% $56,139 $59,145 -5.1%Amortization of intangible assets and other 3,522 2,241 57.2% 5,919 8,970 -34.0% -------------------------------------------------Amortization expenses as reported $16,934 $16,812 0.7% $62,058 $68,115 -8.9%----------------------------------------------------------------------------



The quarterly and year to date decrease in amortization of property, equipment and leaseholds of $1.2 million and $3.0 million respectively is due in part to the transfer of digital projection equipment to CDCP in June 2011 resulting in lower asset values to depreciate, as well as certain assets becoming fully amortized in the third quarter of 2012. Decommissioning the 35 millimeter projectors due to the circuit's conversion to digital also contributed to the decrease in amortization of property, equipment and leaseholds.

The increase in amortization of intangible assets and other in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the prior year period is due to the amortization of certain trade name assets that are being phased out by Cineplex. These assets were previously classified as indefinite lived assets however during the fourth quarter of 2012 their classification was changed to definite lived with amortization being recorded over the anticipated rebranding schedule of the associated theatres. For the year-to-date period, the decrease in amortization of intangible assets and other relates to certain intangible assets that became fully amortized during the first quarter of 2012, offset by the amortization of the trade name assets discussed above.

Fourth Quarter

Theatre occupancy expenses increased $5.7 million during the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to the four theatres acquired from AMC in the third quarter of 2012 ($4.9 million). The increase in the Other category primarily relates to higher real estate taxes in the current quarter compared to the prior year period.

Full Year

The increase in theatre occupancy expenses of $10.6 million for 2012 compared to the prior year was primarily due to the four theatres acquired from AMC in the third quarter of 2012 ($9.1 million). The increase in the Other category primarily relates to higher real estate taxes in the current year compared to the prior year period.

Fourth Quarter

Other operating expenses during the fourth quarter of 2012 increased $10.0 million or 15.5% compared to the prior year period. The impact of new and acquired net of disposed theatres was a $2.6 million increase to the category primarily due to the four theatres acquired from AMC which accounted for $2.1 million of the $2.6 million increase. As a result of higher business volumes during the current year period, same-store payroll costs increased $2.8 million and media costs increased $1.8 million due to higher equipment sales by CDM. These increases were partially offset by the impact of NWS ($0.9 million) as expenses for NWS are included in other operating expenses in 2011 but not in 2012 due to the creation of CSI.

The major movement in the Other category include the following:

-- Higher credit card service fees due to the higher sales volumes during the period ($0.6 million).-- Increased spending for new business initiatives including Cineplex's interactive business ($0.6 million).-- Higher utility costs in the 2012 period compared to the prior year period ($0.2 million).-- Higher digital projector rental costs due to the roll-out of digital projectors by CDCP that commenced in June 2011 ($0.2 million).-- Higher theatre operating costs including cleaning, ticket paper, and projector bulb expense, due to the higher business volumes in the current year period.



Total theatre payroll costs accounted for 41.7% of total operating expenses during the fourth quarter of 2012 as compared to 41.4% for the same period one year earlier due in part to minimum wage increases.

Full Year

For the year ended December 31, 2012, other operating expenses increased $12.7 million, due in part to the higher business volumes in the 2012 period compared to the prior year. The impact of new and acquired net of disposed theatres was a $4.3 million increase to the category primarily due to the four theatres acquired from AMC which accounted for $3.9 million of the $4.3 million increase. Cost increases included higher same-store payroll expenses related to the increased business volumes ($4.4 million), higher marketing costs ($1.3 million) and the $6.1 million increase in the Other category. These cost increases were partially offset by lower media expenses due to the lower media sales during the period ($0.5 million) and the impact of NWS which was contributed into CSI in January 2012 ($1.9 million) as well as a $1.0 million termination payment paid to a landlord in the prior year period to refurbish theatre space for a disposed theatre.

The major movement in the Other category include the following:

-- Higher credit card service fees due to higher sales volumes during the period ($1.6 million).-- Increased spending for new business initiatives including Cineplex's interactive business ($0.7 million).-- Higher utility costs during 2012 compared to the prior year ($1.3 million).-- Higher digital projector rental costs due to the roll-out of digital projectors by CDCP that commenced in June 2011 ($0.9 million).-- Higher theatre operating costs including cleaning, ticket paper, and projector bulb expense relating to the higher business volumes during the year.



Total theatre payroll accounted for 44.4% of total other operating expenses in 2012, compared to 43.7% in the prior year due in part to minimum wage increases.

General and administrative expenses

The following table highlights the movement in general and administrative ("G&A") expenses during the quarter and the full year, including Share based compensation costs, and G&A net of these costs (in thousands of Canadian dollars):

----------------------------------------------------------------------------G&A expenses Fourth Quarter Full Year 2012 2011 Change 2012 2011 Change----------------------------------------------------------------------------G&A excluding LTIP and Option Plan expense $ 12,591 $ 10,779 16.8% $ 46,624 $ 40,832 14.2%LTIP (i) 2,176 1,503 44.8% 8,442 7,542 11.9%Option plan 433 699 -38.1% 2,071 8,066 -74.3% ---------------------------------------------------G&A expenses as reported $ 15,200 $ 12,981 17.1% $ 57,137 $ 56,440 1.2%----------------------------------------------------------------------------(i) LTIP includes the expense for the LTIP program as well as the expense for the executive and Board deferred share unit plans.



Fourth Quarter

G&A expenses increased $2.2 million during the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the prior year period, due to a $0.7 million increase in LTIP expenses, a $0.2 million increase in professional fees and a $1.6 million increase in payroll related and general cost increases. These increases were partially offset by lower expenses under the option plan ($0.3 million).

Effective January 1, 2012, the Board invoked Cineplex's right to substitute a cashless exercise for any requested exercise of options for cash, in accordance with the terms of the option plan. As a result of the change in administrative policy, the options may only be equity-settled, and are considered equity, not liabilities. The expense amount for options is determined at the time of their issuance, recognized over the vesting period of the options. Existing options at the time of the change in administrative policy have their remaining expense determined at the time of the change in administrative policy, recognized over the remaining vesting periods.

Full Year

G&A expenses for 2012 increased $0.7 million compared to the prior year period, due to higher professional fees ($1.6 million) relating to the creation of CSI, an internal corporate reorganization effected on January 1, 2012 and the costs relating to the acquisition of AMC Ventures Inc., higher payroll related and general cost increases ($4.2 million) and higher LTIP expenses ($0.9 million). These increases were partially offset by the $6.0 million decrease in the option plan expense.

Share of loss of joint ventures

Cineplex's joint ventures in 2012 include its 50% share of one theatre in Quebec and one IMAX screen in Ontario, its 50% interest in SCENE LP, its 78.2% interest in CDCP (formed in June 2011) and its 50% interest in CSI (formed January 31, 2012). For 2011, Cineplex's joint ventures included one theatre in Quebec, one IMAX screen in Ontario, its interest in SCENE LP and its 78.2% interest in CDCP. The following table highlights the components of share of loss of joint ventures during the quarter and the full year (in thousands of Canadian dollars):

----------------------------------------------------------------------------Share of loss of joint ventures Fourth Quarter Full Year 2012 2011 Change 2012 2011 Change----------------------------------------------------------------------------Share of (income) loss of CDCP $ (834) $ (560) NM $ (2,222) $ 1,658 NMShare of (income) of CSI (170) - NM (932) - NMShare of loss (income) of SCENE 1,588 1,902 -16.5% 4,638 (1,440) NMShare of loss (income) of other joint ventures 2 19 -89.5% (109) 51 NM -----------------------------------------------------Total loss of joint ventures $ 586 $ 1,361 -56.9% $ 1,375 $ 269 411.2%----------------------------------------------------------------------------



Fourth Quarter

The decrease from a loss of $1.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 to a loss of $0.6 million in the current period is primarily due to the activities of SCENE, CDCP and CSI:

-- SCENE's loss in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $0.3 million smaller than the loss in the prior year period due to less marketing spend in the current year period compared to the prior year.-- CDCP generated income of $0.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, $0.3 million higher than the prior year period due in part to the full roll-out of digital projectors being completed in 2012.-- The results of CSI, formed January 31, 2012 and therefore not included in the prior year comparative, contributed a $0.2 million positive variance year over year.



Full Year

The increase from a loss of $0.3 million in 2011 to a loss of $1.4 million in the current year is mainly due to the activities of SCENE, CDCP and CSI:

-- SCENE's results in the 2011 period include income relating to a change in accounting estimate for breakage resulting in a program-to-date adjustment to its outstanding points liability as well as the adjustment to SCENE's outstanding points balance due to certain members having their points expired due to inactivity in the program. When compared to the current year period the result is a negative variance of $6.1 million year over year.-- CDCP in the 2011 period includes $2.2 million of start-up costs offset by income of $0.5 million, which when compared to the income of $2.2 million generated in the current year period, results in a positive variance of $3.9 million year over year.-- The results of CSI, formed January 31, 2012 and therefore not included in the prior year comparative, contributed a $0.9 million positive variance year over year.



EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA

The following table represents EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the three months and year ended December 31, 2012 as compared to the three months and year ended December 31, 2011 (expressed in thousands of Canadian dollars, except adjusted EBITDA margin):

----------------------------------------------------------------------------EBITDA Fourth Quarter Full Year 2012 2011 Change 2012 2011 Change----------------------------------------------------------------------------EBITDA $ 61,864 $ 39,906 55.0% $ 227,547 $ 170,625 33.4%Adjusted EBITDA $ 57,507 $ 40,102 43.4% $ 200,484 $ 173,174 15.8%Adjusted EBITDA margin 19.3% 16.6% 2.7% 18.4% 17.3% 1.1%----------------------------------------------------------------------------



Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased $17.4 million, or 43.4%, as compared to the prior year period. The increase over the prior year period was primarily due to the record fourth quarter exhibition and concession revenues recorded in the period. The four theatres acquired from AMC in the third quarter of 2012 contributed $0.6 million to adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter. Adjusted EBITDA margin, calculated as adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenues, was 19.3%, up 2.7% from 16.6% in the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased $27.3 million, or 15.8%, as compared to the prior year period. The increase is primarily due to the higher exhibition and concession revenues due to the record theatre attendance. The impact of the four theatres acquired from AMC had a $0.2 million, or 0.1%, negative impact on adjusted EBITDA in the year-to-date period. Adjusted EBITDA margin, calculated as adjusted EBITDA divided by total revenues, was 18.4%, compared to 17.3% in the prior year period. Excluding the impact of the AMC theatres, adjusted EBITDA margin was 18.7% for 2012.

Cineplex believes its operating and programming expertise, combined with its merchandising, media, marketing, interactive and SCENE loyalty programs will positively and significantly improve the operations of the four theatres acquired from AMC. Cineplex will invest in each of the locations and may add UltraAVX auditoriums, VIP auditoriums or XSCAPE entertainment centres to one or more of the locations.
