“As highlighted by our record revenues and operating income, fiscal 2018 was another great year for The Marcus Corporation. Both divisions contributed to the improved performance, with Marcus Theatres achieving record revenues and operating income for both the fourth quarter and full year and Marcus Hotels & Resorts delivering record revenues during both periods as well,” said Gregory S. Marcus, president and chief executive officer of The Marcus Corporation.

The company’s fiscal 2018 results were impacted by nonrecurring acquisition and preopening expenses in the theatre division and nonrecurring preopening expenses and accelerated depreciation expense in the hotel division in the fourth quarter. “If not for these one-time expenses, we would have achieved both record revenues and operating income for the fourth quarter and our hotel division would have reported a sizeable increase in fourth-quarter operating income,” said Marcus.

Marcus Theatres®

Revenues for Marcus Theatres increased 6.2% in the fourth quarter and 10.8% for fiscal 2018 and operating income increased 2.8% for the fourth quarter and 10.4% for fiscal 2018, compared to the prior year periods. A particularly strong October enabled the division to achieve record results for the fiscal 2018 fourth quarter, in spite of a weaker December holiday movie slate than in the prior year. The overall revenue increase was also driven by higher concession revenues per person, which reflects the continued success of the company’s distinctive food and beverage concepts. The division’s record operating income during the fiscal 2018 fourth quarter and full year would have been even greater if not for the previously described acquisition and preopening expenses related to the Movie Tavern acquisition.

On a comparable theatre basis, the division’s box office was in line with the industry for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 (after adjusting for new theatres) and outperformed the national box office by nearly two percentage points for the full year, according to data received from Rentrak.

On February 1, 2019, Marcus Theatres completed the acquisition of the Movie Tavern circuit, adding 208 screens at 22 locations in nine states and increasing its footprint by 23%. “Movie Tavern is an attractive addition to our circuit and we are especially excited to enter nine new states and expand our portfolio of in-theatre dining locations. We believe the Movie Tavern business will be accretive to earnings, earnings per share and cash flow in the first 12 months after closing,” said Marcus.

The division continued to invest in its theatres, expanding its signature features and amenities to more locations. During fiscal 2018, Marcus Theatres added DreamLoungerSM recliner seating to seven theatres, including three Marcus Wehrenberg locations. As a result, the company ended fiscal 2018 with DreamLounger recliner seating in approximately 75% of its company-owned, first-run screens, a percentage believed to be the highest among the largest theatre chains in the nation. In addition, one existing screen was converted to an UltraScreen DLX® auditorium and eight existing screens were converted to SuperScreen DLX® auditoriums at seven theatres, including four Marcus Wehrenberg locations, during fiscal 2018. The division also opened one new Take FiveSM Lounge and two Zaffiro’s® Express outlets during the year.

“The ongoing investments in our theatres were a major contributor to our record fiscal 2018 results. In addition, our innovative pricing strategies, Magical Movie RewardsSM loyalty program and creative marketing programs, along with excellent teamwork and strong operational execution, continue to be a successful combination for us,” said Rolando B. Rodriguez, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Marcus Theatres.

The five top-performing films for Marcus Theatres in the fourth quarter were Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch, A Star is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, Halloweenand Ralph Breaks the Internet. For the full year, the top performing movies were Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Incredibles 2, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Deadpool 2.

“As anticipated, the first quarter of fiscal 2019 is off to a slower start than last year due to a difficult comparison against several strong holdover films in the prior year and last year’s top film, Black Panther. We are looking forward to the opening of highly anticipated films including Captain Marvel and Us later in the quarter. Overall, the film slate for 2019 is expected to be quite strong, particularly during the second half of the year, with potential hits including Dumbo, Avengers: Endgame, Aladdin, The Secret Life of Pets 2, Toy Story 4, Spider-Man: Far From Home, The Lion King, It: Chapter Two, Frozen 2, Jumanji 3 and Star Wars: Episode IX,” said Rodriguez.

Marcus® Hotels & Resorts

Marcus Hotels & Resorts’ revenue per available room (RevPAR) for comparable company-owned properties increased 1.9% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 and 1.4% for the full year. Revenues increased 4.9% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 and 4.1% for the full year, primarily driven by increased group business as well as higher food and beverage revenues and management fees.

“Operating income was down for the fiscal 2018 fourth quarter and full year due entirely to preopening expenses and accelerated depreciation expense related to the transformation of the InterContinental Milwaukee hotel into Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel. Excluding these expenses from fiscal 2018 and operating results of the newly opened SafeHouse®Chicago from fiscal 2017, operating income for the division for fiscal 2018 would have been up approximately 23% from the prior year, reflecting our focus on strong cost controls, while maintaining our high standards for quality and service,” said Marcus. “With the increases in revenues and comparable operating income, fiscal 2018 was a very good year for Marcus Hotels & Resorts.”

“The InterContinental Milwaukee has been closed since early January for the renovation into Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel. Saint Kate will be an independent hotel focused on the arts in its many forms. We are very excited about this concept and the impact we believe it will have on the arts scene in Milwaukee when it opens in late spring,” added Marcus. He noted that the hotel division will incur additional preopening expenses during the first half of fiscal 2019 as a result of the hotel closing and renovation.

Marcus Hotels & Resorts added three new management contracts in fiscal 2018: the Murieta Inn and Spa in Rancho Murieta, Calif. and the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel El Paso Downtown and the Courtyard by Marriott El Paso Downtown/Convention Center, both in El Paso, Texas. The additions increased the company’s footprint to 21 owned and/or managed properties.

In 2018, numerous Marcus Hotels & Resorts hotels and restaurants were recognized by prestigious organizations for their commitment to excellence. Three properties received the coveted Condé Nast Traveler 31st annual Readers’ Choice Award, four hotels earned the AAA Four Diamond Award and 20 hotels and restaurants received the TripAdvisor® 2018 Certificate of Excellence.

Return of Capital to Shareholders

“Yesterday, we announced a 6.7% increase in the cash dividend rate, which, combined with an increased number of shares outstanding, will result in an increase in total dividends paid of over 17% compared to the prior year. The new dividend rate is nearly 90% higher than it was just five years ago. Our strong balance sheet gives us the ability to return capital to shareholders, while at the same time continuing to invest in our two businesses and pursue additional growth opportunities, such as our recently completed Movie Tavern acquisition,” said Douglas A. Neis, executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer of The Marcus Corporation.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted net earnings attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings 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 attributable to The Marcus Corporation as net earnings 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 per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation as Adjusted net earnings attributable to The Marcus Corporation divided by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. The company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net earnings attributable to The Marcus Corporation before investment income, 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 attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings 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 attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings 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 companies in the company’s industries.

Adjusted net earnings attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings 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 or diluted earnings 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 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 attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we 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 attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA, such as acquisition expenses, preopening expenses, accelerated depreciation and other adjustments. The company’s presentation of Adjusted net earnings attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings 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, Adjusted diluted earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA differ among companies in our industries, and therefore Adjusted net earnings, Adjusted diluted earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA disclosed by the company may not be comparable to the measures disclosed by other companies.
