DIGITAL CINEMA DESTINATIONS CORP. (DIGIPLEX) REPORTS

FISCAL 2012 FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL-YEAR FINANCIAL RESULTS

 

WESTFIELD, New Jersey (September 20, 2012) - Digital Cinema Destinations Corp. (NasdaqCM: DCIN) (Digiplex), a fast-growing motion picture exhibitor dedicated to transforming movie theatres into digital entertainment centers, today reported its fiscal 2012 fourth quarter and full-year financial results for the periods ended June 30, 2012.  Management is hosting a conference call and webcast at 4:30 p.m. ET to review the results.

TELEPHONE:dial 800/618-4714.  Please call at least five minutes in advanceto ensure that you are connected.

WEBCAST: Live webcast is available through the Investor Relationssection of Digiplex’s website at www.digiplexdest.com.  A webcast replay will be available and accessible for at least 30 days following the live event.

Digiplex Chairman and CEO Bud Mayo stated, “Digiplex’s fiscal 2012 fourth quarter and full-year financial results are not yet indicative of what investors should expect to see from us in upcoming reporting periods for a number of reasons, all of which will benefit the Company’s future cash flows.  Firstly, we did not garner a full quarter of benefit from the Cinema Centers acquisition, which was completed in late April.  In addition, the Company did not begin receiving virtual print fees (VPFs), as an offset to our film rental expense, on those 54 screens until late in Q4, when our digital projection system installs were completed.  We were also unable to show alternative programming on our PA-based screens until the digitization process was finished and lastly, we did not begin benefiting from our participation as a member of National CineMedia’s advertising network before their projection equipment arrived in late May and early June.    

“We are quite pleased that Digiplex’s unique operating strategies are working well and we continue to actively pursue accretive acquisitions in top DMAs that will help us achieve demonstrable future growth and we have a robust pipeline of potential targets on our radar.  The Company’s active focus on presenting a wide array of alternative programming has proven to be a very effective tool in enhancing capacity utilization numbers, especially during non-weekend and off-peak time slots.  Of note, the admission price for these special events typically runs 50 percent higher or more compared to standard Hollywood movies, which we also regularly show on our screens.  The Company’s talented marketing team, including a creative group of theatre-level employees, has been doing an excellent job with numerous social media initiatives, helping us drive solid attendance numbers through targeted outreach to our audience, which varies significantly depending on the genre of content we are presenting.  We are fostering an active two-way dialog with our patrons, and learning who likes what, helping us facilitate and continuously improve the marketing process.  Initial results have been very encouraging and the overall contribution from alternative programming is averaging in the high single digits of total admissions receipts, with one theatre generating an impressive 20% in a recent quarter,” concluded Mr. Mayo.
