“Total revenues for The Marcus Corporation were a record in the third quarter due to increased revenues from the theatre division,” said Gregory S. Marcus, president and chief executive officer of The Marcus Corporation. “Marcus Theatres® reported record revenues and increased operating income during the quarter. In our hotels and resorts division, the reception to Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel has been very positive. Excluding additional preopening expenses and anticipated initial startup losses associated with the introduction of Saint Kate, Marcus® Hotels & Resorts would have reported increased operating income during the third quarter, as well.

“The Marcus Corporation also reported increased earnings before income taxes in the third quarter. Net earnings during the comparable third quarter of 2018 were impacted by a favorable one-time tax benefit,” said Marcus.

Marcus Theatres®

Revenues for Marcus Theatres increased 44.0% in the third quarter and operating income increased 16.5%. Comparable theatres outperformed the national box office by 3.3 percentage points in the quarter, according to data from Rentrak, and is also outperforming the industry for the first three quarters of the year.

“Record revenue in the quarter was driven by the continued contributions from the Movie Tavern by Marcus locations as well as continued strong growth in our concession/food and beverage revenues compared to the same period in 2018,” said Rolando Rodriguez, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Marcus Theatres. “We continue to be pleased by the integration of the Movie Tavern theatres into our circuit, with our capital investments and innovative programs and marketing strategies driving significant outperformance at the box office.”

Earlier in October, Marcus Theatres celebrated the opening of the first Movie Tavern by Marcus at Brookfield Square in the company’s home state of Wisconsin. The newly built theatre features eight auditoriums, each with comfortable DreamLounger℠ recliner seating, and all of the auditoriums feature state-of-the-art laser projection. One of the eight auditoriums is a SuperScreen DLX® experience with an oversized screen, immersive Dolby® Atmos® sound and optional heated recliner seating. Moreover, the new Movie Tavern features advanced technology features such as the convenient ability to order food from the Marcus Theatres Mobile App as well as at ticketing kiosks. In total, there are now 23 Movie Tavern by Marcus locations in 10 states.

The division continued to invest in its theatres during the quarter, converting nine Movie Tavern by Marcus auditoriums and one Marcus Wehrenberg auditorium to the SuperScreen DLXformat and continuing the DreamLoungerrecliner seating upgrades underway at one Movie Tavern by Marcus location and one Marcus Weherenberg location. Those upgrades will be completed in the fourth quarter.

The five top-performing films for Marcus Theatres in the third quarter of fiscal 2019 were The Lion King; Spider-Man: Far From Home; Toy Story 4; IT Chapter Two; and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

Rodriguez said he is looking forward to the popular holiday season, which will include films such as Terminator: Dark Fate; Ford v Ferrari; Frozen 2; A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood; Jumanji: The Next Level; and Cats. The fiscal year ends with the highly anticipated conclusion to the current Star Wars trilogy, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Marcus® Hotels & Resorts

Revenue per available room (RevPAR) for Marcus Hotels & Resorts, excluding Saint Kate, increased 0.6% in the third quarter and 0.9% for the first three quarters of the year. Excluding Hilton Madison Monona Terrace in Madison, Wis., which underwent extensive renovations during the first half of the year, RevPAR for comparable company-owned properties has increased 2.8% for the first three quarters of the year.

“As expected, operating income in our hotels division declined in the third quarter and the first three quarters of the year due entirely to the preopening expenses and initial startup losses related to the conversion of the former InterContinental Milwaukee hotel into Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel,” said Marcus. “Excluding Saint Kate, operating income would have improved by 6.2% in the third quarter and 11.4% for the first three quarters of the year. Strong group business at several hotels and a continued focus on cost controls and operating efficiencies contributed to the division’s year-to-date results.”

In July, Saint Kate officially celebrated its grand opening with over 500 artists, guests and supporters. “At Saint Kate, we are curating an experience unlike any other,” said Marcus. “In addition to being an exquisite hotel, Saint Kate is a powerful convener for members of our community who want to experience the arts in a new way. We are thrilled with the reception the hotel has received from travelers and the community alike.”

During the quarter, three Marcus Hotels & Resorts properties received the coveted Condé Nast Traveler 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards. The Pfister® Hotel in Milwaukee was voted as a Top Hotel in the Midwest by the publication’s readers, while the Grand Geneva®Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva, Wis. ranked among the Top 5 Resorts in the Midwest and The Garland in North Hollywood, Calif. was recognized as a Top Hotel in Los Angeles.

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 industry competitors.

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.
