First Half Fiscal 2009 Highlights
A strong year-over-year performance by Marcus Theatres® helped to offset the anticipated decline in performance of Marcus Hotels and Resorts due to the very difficult lodging industry environment. Excluding the one-time investment losses and adjusted gains which totaled approximately $0.07 per diluted common share, our earnings per share would have matched last years second quarter results. Given the current economic conditions, we believe this is quite an achievement, said Stephen H. Marcus, chairman and chief executive officer of The Marcus Corporation.
