“Without question, 2020 was the most challenging year in our history, with the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacting our businesses and the industries in which we compete,” said Gregory S. Marcus, president and chief executive officer of The Marcus Corporation. “Our team continues to do an outstanding job of responding to every challenge thrown their way, prioritizing the health and safety of each other, our guests and the communities we serve, while innovating new, creative ways to safely and enjoyably return to our theatres, hotels and restaurants. As we ended 2020 and turned the corner into 2021, improving COVID-19 conditions in our markets, significant progress related to the vaccines, along with growing consumer confidence gives us encouragement that better days are ahead. Our strong balance sheet and liquidity provide us with the financial flexibility to sustain operations as the recovery continues in 2021.”

Marcus Theatres®

During the fourth quarter, new state and local restrictions in several markets required the temporary reclosure of several theatres, resulting in 52% of theatres being open as of December 31, 2020. As of the date of this release, many of those restrictions have since been lifted with nearly 70% of theatres now open. The remaining temporarily closed theatres are ready to quickly reopen as additional restrictions are lifted, new films are released on a regular basis and demand returns.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the theatre division introduced Marcus Private Cinema in the fourth quarter. Guests can reserve an entire auditorium for up to 20 people, offering a safe, fun and stress-free social gathering opportunity for a flat fee. As program awareness increased during the first two months of 2021, sales attributable to Marcus Private Cinema have exceeded expectations, helping to partially offset reduced traditional attendance. Moviegoers also continue to enjoy food and beverage experiences, as average concession revenues per person increased over 10% compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019.

“During the fourth quarter and first two months of 2021, theatre attendance has been increasing gradually as we have been able to offer guests a greater number and variety of films, an encouraging sign that moviegoers continue to gain confidence in returning to theatres,” said Rolando Rodriguez, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Marcus Theatres. “We attribute this improvement to our innovative programming, such as Marcus Private Cinema, growing awareness of our safety and sanitation measures, and pent up demand for a return to normalcy. We are very encouraged by the recent record-breaking performance of theatres in markets such as China and Japan, where the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has lessened. We are also encouraged by the recent news that government-imposed restrictions in New York City, one of the world’s largest movie markets, are beginning to lift. This bodes well for continued recovery in the U.S. as vaccination rates increase and the pandemic recedes.”

While the film release schedule continued to change, several films generated box office interest in the fourth quarter, including “The Croods: A New Age,” “Wonder Woman 1984,” and “The War with Grandpa.” As a greater portion of the population gets vaccinated, demand for out-of-home entertainment is expected to increase with studios beginning to release new high-quality films to theatres. The film slate for the remainder of 2021, which now includes multiple films originally scheduled for 2020, is currently expected to be very strong, particularly during the second half of the year. Just a few highly anticipated films currently scheduled for 2021 include: “Godzilla vs. Kong,” “Black Widow,” “Fast & Furious 9,” “In the Heights,” “Top Gun: Maverick,” “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” “The Suicide Squad,” “The King’s Man,” “A Quiet Place II,” “Death on the Nile,” “Dune,” “No Time To Die,” “Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” Mission Impossible 7,” “West Side Story,” “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” The Untitled Matrix Film, and “Sing 2.” The early list of films scheduled to be released during fiscal 2022 also appears quite strong.

Marcus® Hotels & Resorts 

All eight Marcus Hotels & Resorts company-owned hotels were open as of December 31, 2020, as well as nine out of 10 managed hotels and other properties. The majority of the company’s restaurants and bars were also open. Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic, Marcus Hotels & Resorts’ properties significantly outperformed its segment of the hotel industry and its competitive sets during fiscal 2020.

Demand continues to be driven by the “drive-to leisure” market, with Grand Geneva® Resort & Spa and Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark in Lake Geneva, Wis. experiencing the highest demand among our hotels, particularly on weekends as guests sought outdoor and golf experiences during the summer and ski experiences during the winter. “Across our portfolio, occupancy has continued to increase since the start of the pandemic,” said Michael Evans, president of Marcus Hotels & Resorts. “While the fourth quarter and first quarter are historically the slow point in the year as leisure travel slows over the winter months, we expect the pace of recovery to steadily improve as we head deeper into 2021. It is encouraging that many cultural institutions and sports teams in our markets are transitioning their operations to allow for more in-person guests and spectators. As travel increases and groups begin to plan for future events, our properties are uniquely positioned to capture increased demand.”

Group pace for fiscal 2021 is behind last year, with a large portion of that decline attributed to one-time event bookings in anticipation of Milwaukee hosting the Democratic National Convention in 2020. Many cancelled group bookings due to COVID-19 are rebooking for future dates, including the rescheduled Ryder Cup in September 2021. The division is also experiencing an increase in wedding bookings.

Throughout 2020, the company’s owned or managed hotels were feted by many travel industry awards for exceptional service and amenities, including the coveted Condé Nast 2020 Readers Choice Awards. Saint KateThe Arts Hotel in Milwaukee was voted the #6 Top Hotel in the Midwest, while The Pfister® Hotel in Milwaukee was voted the #8 Top Hotel in the Midwest. The Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva, Wis. was voted the #20 Top Resort in the Midwest and West, and The Garland was voted the #14 Top Hotel in Los Angeles. Additional 2020 “best of” recognitions were received from prestigious organizations such as USA Today, Travel & Leisure, U.S. News, Booking.com, The Knot, AAA and Trip Advisor.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Throughout The Marcus Corporation’s 85-year history, the company has prioritized maintaining a strong balance sheet. As of December 31, 2020, the company’s debt-to-capitalization ratio was 37%, which is equal to or lower than the same ratio during seven of the last 10 fiscal year-ends. The company’s liquidity also remains strong, with approximately $227 million in cash and revolving credit availability at year end.

“Our real estate ownership provides a significant advantage to us relative to our peers, as it keeps our monthly fixed lease payments low and provides substantial underlying credit support for our balance sheet,” said Douglas Neis, executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer. “It also provides us an opportunity to monetize select real estate if opportunities arise.” In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, the company realized proceeds from the sale of two land parcels and a former budget theatre and at year-end the company had letters of intent or contracts to sell several additional pieces of real estate.

In addition to receiving anticipated income tax refunds during the fourth quarter, the company was awarded various state grants, the majority of which was received in January 2021. The company expects to receive additional prior year income tax refunds early in 2021 and recently was awarded and received an additional state grant. Looking ahead, the company anticipates an additional income tax refund later in the year when the fiscal 2020 tax return is filed.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA have been presented in this press release as supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. The company defines Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation as net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that the company does not consider indicative of its core operating performance and the tax effect related to those items. The company defines Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation as Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation divided by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. The company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation before investment income or loss, interest expense, other expense, gain or loss on disposition of property, equipment and other assets, equity earnings or losses from unconsolidated joint ventures, net earnings or losses attributable to noncontrolling interests, income taxes and depreciation and amortization, adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that the company does not consider indicative of its core operating performance. Reconciliations of these measures to the equivalent measures under GAAP are set forth in the attached tables.

Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA are key measures used by management and the company’s board of directors to assess the company’s financial performance and enterprise value. The company believes that Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA are useful measures, as they eliminate certain expenses that are not indicative of the company’s core operating performance and facilitate a comparison of the company’s core operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period. The company also uses Adjusted EBITDA as a basis to determine certain annual cash bonuses and long-term incentive awards, to supplement GAAP measures of performance to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies, to make budgeting decisions, and to compare its performance against that of other peer companies using similar measures. Adjusted net earnings, Adjusted diluted earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA are also used by analysts, investors and other interested parties as performance measures to evaluate industry competitors.

Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures of the company’s financial performance and should not be considered as alternatives to net earnings (loss) or diluted earnings (loss) per share as a measure of financial performance, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP and they should not be construed as an inference that the company’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Additionally, Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be measures of liquidity or free cash flow for management’s discretionary use. In addition, these non-GAAP measures exclude certain non-recurring and other charges. Each of these non-GAAP measures has its limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the company’s results as reported under GAAP. In evaluating Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future the company will incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the items eliminated in the adjustments made to determine Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA, such as acquisition expenses, preopening expenses, accelerated depreciation, impairment charges and other adjustments. The company’s presentation of Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed to imply that the company’s future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. Definitions and calculations of Adjusted net earnings (loss), Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share and Adjusted EBITDA differ among companies in our industries, and therefore Adjusted net earnings (loss), Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share and Adjusted EBITDA disclosed by the company may not be comparable to the measures disclosed by other companies.
