REGAL ENTERTAINMENT GROUP

 

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

JUNE 30, 2011 AND JULY 1, 2010

 

1. THE COMPANY AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Regal Entertainment Group (the “Company,” “Regal,” “we” or “us”) is the parent company of Regal Entertainment Holdings, Inc. (“REH”), which is the parent company of Regal Cinemas Corporation (“Regal Cinemas”) and its subsidiaries. Regal Cinemas’ subsidiaries include Regal Cinemas, Inc. (“RCI”) and its subsidiaries, which include Edwards Theatres, Inc. (“Edwards”), Hoyts Cinemas Corporation (“Hoyts”) and United Artists Theatre Company (“United Artists”). The terms Regal or the Company, REH, Regal Cinemas, RCI, Edwards, Hoyts and United Artists shall be deemed to include the respective subsidiaries of such entities when used in discussions included herein regarding the current operations or assets of such entities.

 

Regal operates the largest theatre circuit in the United States, consisting of 6,653 screens in 534 theatres in 37 states and the District of Columbia as of June 30, 2011. The Company formally operates on a 52-week fiscal year with each quarter generally consisting of 13 weeks, unless otherwise noted. The Company’s fiscal year ends on the first Thursday after December 25, which in certain years results in a 53-week fiscal year.

 

For a discussion of significant transactions that have occurred through December 30, 2010, please refer to the notes to the consolidated financial statements included in Part II, Item 8 of our annual report on Form 10-K filed on February 28, 2011 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) (File No. 001-31315) for the fiscal year ended December 30, 2010 (the “2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements”). For a summary of our significant accounting policies, please refer to Note 2 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

Total comprehensive income for the quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010 was $34.0 million and $3.2 million, respectively.  Total comprehensive income for the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010 was $16.7 million and $16.1 million, respectively. Total comprehensive income consists of net income attributable to controlling interest and other comprehensive income, net of tax, related to the change in the aggregate unrealized gain/loss on the Company’s interest rate swap arrangements and available-for-sale equity securities during the quarters and two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010. The Company’s interest rate swap arrangements and available-for-sale equity securities are further described in Note 4—“Debt Obligations” and Note 11—“Fair Value of Financial Instruments.”

 

The Company has prepared the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2011 and the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income and cash flows for the quarters and two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010 in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and the rules and regulations of the Commission. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures typically included in an annual report have been condensed or omitted for this quarterly report. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (which include only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly in all material respects the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for all periods presented have been made.  The December 30, 2010 unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet information is derived from the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements and notes thereto. The results of operations for the quarter and two quarters ended June 30, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results that may be achieved for the full 2011 fiscal year.

 

2. ACQUISITION

 

Acquisition of Eight AMC Theatres

 

On May 24, 2010 and June 24, 2010, the Company acquired eight theatres with 106 screens located in Illinois, Indiana and Colorado from an affiliate of AMC Entertainment, Inc. (“AMC”). The Company purchased five of these AMC theatres representing 63 screens for approximately $55.0 million in cash, subject to post-closing

Table of Contents

 

adjustments, and acquired the other three AMC theatres representing 43 screens in exchange for two Regal theatres consisting of 26 screens. As of the acquisition date, the exchanged Regal theatres had a net book value of approximately $0.2 million. The Company accounted for the exchanged theatre assets as a non-monetary transaction and as such, allocated the net book value of the Regal theatres to the exchanged AMC theatres. Total cash paid of approximately $55.0 million was directly allocated to the other five AMC theatres using the acquisition method of accounting. Accordingly, the total cash purchase price was allocated to the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed for each of the respective theatre locations based on their estimated fair values at the dates of acquisition. The allocation of the purchase price is based on management’s judgment after evaluating several factors, including an independent third party valuation. The results of operations of the eight acquired theatres have been included in the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for periods subsequent to the respective acquisition dates.

 

The following is a summary of the final allocation of the aggregate cash purchase price to the estimated fair values of the identifiable assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the respective dates of acquisition (in millions):

The transaction included the acquisition of certain identifiable intangible assets, consisting of $14.4 million related to favorable leases with a weighted average amortization period of 35 years. During the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, the Company recognized $0.6 million and less than $0.1 million, respectively, of amortization related to these intangible assets.

 

3. INVESTMENTS

 

Investment in Digital Cinema Implementation Partners

 

On February 12, 2007, we, along with AMC and Cinemark, Inc. (“Cinemark”) formed a joint venture company known as Digital Cinema Implementation Partners, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“DCIP”), to create a financing model and establish agreements with major motion picture studios for the implementation of digital cinema in our theatres. On March 10, 2010, DCIP executed definitive agreements and related financing transactions in connection with the conversion to digital projection. Concurrent with closing, the Company entered into a master equipment lease agreement (the “Master Lease”) and other related agreements (collectively, the “Digital Cinema Agreements”) with Kasima, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of DCIP. Upon execution of the Digital Cinema Agreements, the Company made equity contributions to DCIP of approximately $41.7 million, consisting of $29.1 million in cash and 200 existing digital projection systems with a fair value of approximately $12.6 million (collectively, the “DCIP Contributions”). The Company recorded such DCIP Contributions as an increase in its investment in DCIP. In connection with the contribution of its 200 existing digital projection systems, the Company recorded a loss on the contribution of $2.0 million based on the excess of the carrying value of the digital projection systems contributed over the $12.6 million fair value (as determined by an independent appraisal) of such equipment.  Such loss was presented as a component of “Net loss on disposal and impairment of operating assets” in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statement of income for the two quarters ended July 1, 2010. In addition, during May 2010, Regal sold an additional 337 digital projection systems to DCIP for aggregate proceeds of approximately $20.0 million. In connection with this sale, the Company recorded a loss on disposal of approximately $2.8 million.

 

After giving effect to the DCIP Contributions, the Company holds a 46.7% economic interest in DCIP as of June 30, 2011, while continuing to maintain a one-third voting interest along with each of AMC and Cinemark. Since the Company determined that it is not the primary beneficiary of DCIP or any of its subsidiaries, it will continue to account for its investment in DCIP under the equity method of accounting. The Company’s investment in DCIP is included as a component of “Other Non-Current Assets” in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets.

(1)                                 The Company effected additional cash investments in DCIP of approximately $12.6 million, during the two quarters ended June 30, 2011.

 

(2)                                 For the two quarters ended June 30, 2011, the Company recorded a loss of $2.6 million, representing its share of the net loss of DCIP.  Such amount is presented as a component of “Other, net” in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statement of income.

 

DCIP funds the cost of conversion to digital projection principally through the collection of virtual print fees from motion picture studios and equipment lease payments from participating exhibitors, including us. In accordance with the Master Lease, the digital projection systems are leased from Kasima, LLC under a twelve-year term with ten one-year fair value renewal options. The Master Lease also contains a fair value purchase option. Under the Master Lease, the Company pays annual minimum rent of $1,000 per digital projection system for the first six and a half years from the effective date of the agreement and is, upon certain conditions, subject to minimum annual rent of $3,000 per digital projection system beginning at six and half years from the effective date of the agreement through the end of the lease term. The Company is also subject to various types of other rent if such digital projection systems do not meet minimum performance requirements as outlined in the Master Lease. Certain of the other rent payments are subject to either a monthly or an annual maximum. The Company accounts for the Master Lease as an operating lease for accounting purposes.

 

During June 2011, we completed our deployment of 3D compatible digital projection systems to across our circuit. With respect to the Company’s existing 35mm film projection equipment that is scheduled to be replaced with digital projection systems, the Company has accelerated depreciation on such 35 mm film projection equipment over the expected deployment schedule since the Company plans to dispose of such equipment prior to the end of their useful lives. To that end, during the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, the Company recorded approximately $5.9 million and $12.0 million, respectively of accelerated depreciation related to such 35mm film projection equipment. As of June 30, 2011, we operated 3,520 screens outfitted with digital projection systems, 2,787 of which are digital 3D capable.

 

Investment in National CineMedia, LLC

 

We maintain an investment in National CineMedia, LLC (“National CineMedia” or “NCM”).  National CineMedia primarily concentrates on in-theatre advertising and creating complementary business lines that leverage the operating personnel, asset and customer bases of its theatrical exhibition partners, which includes us, AMC and Cinemark.

 

As described further in Note 4 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements, on February 13, 2007, National CineMedia, Inc. (“NCM, Inc.”), an entity that serves as the sole manager of National CineMedia, completed an IPO of its common stock. In connection with the IPO of NCM, Inc., Regal, AMC and Cinemark amended and restated the operating agreement of National CineMedia and other ancillary agreements. The formation of National CineMedia, related IPO of NCM, Inc. and other related transactions are further described in Note 4 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

As described further below, during the quarter ended March 31, 2011, the Company received from National CineMedia approximately 0.6 million newly issued common units of National CineMedia (“Additional Investments Tranche”) as a result of the annual adjustment provisions of the Common Unit Adjustment Agreement. The Company follows the guidance in ASC 323-10-35-29 (formerly EITF 02-18, Accounting for Subsequent Investments in an Investee after Suspension of Equity Loss Recognition) by analogy, which also refers to AICPA Technical Practice Aid 2220.14 which indicates that if a subsequent investment is made in an equity method investee that has experienced significant losses, the investor must determine if the subsequent investment constitutes funding of prior

losses. The Company concluded that the construction or acquisition of new theatres that has led to the common unit adjustments included in its Additional Investments Tranche equates to making additional investments in National CineMedia. The Company evaluated the receipt of the additional common units in National CineMedia and the assets exchanged for these additional units and has determined that the right to use its incremental new screens would not be considered funding of prior losses. As such, the Additional Investments Tranche is accounted for separately from the Company’s Initial Investment Tranche (as defined and described more fully in Note 4 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements) following the equity method with undistributed equity earnings included as a component of “Earnings recognized from NCM” in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Pursuant to the terms of the tax receivable agreement described more fully in Note 4 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements, the Company received payments of $6.8 million from NCM, Inc. during the quarter ended March 31, 2011 with respect to NCM, Inc.’s 2010 taxable year. During the quarter ended April 1, 2010, the Company received payments of $7.0 million with respect to NCM, Inc.’s 2008 and 2009 taxable years.  Such payments are accounted for using the equity method as described further below.

 

We account for our investment in National CineMedia following the equity method of accounting and such investment is included as a component of “Other Non-Current Assets” in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets.  The changes in the carrying amount of our investment in National CineMedia for the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 are as follows (in millions):

(1)                                 On March 17, 2011, we received from National CineMedia approximately 0.6 million newly issued common units of National CineMedia in accordance with the annual adjustment provisions of the Common Unit Adjustment Agreement. The Company recorded the additional common units (Additional Investments Tranche) at fair value using the available closing stock price of NCM, Inc. as of the date on which the units were received. With respect to the common units received on March 17, 2011, the Company recorded an increase to its investment in National CineMedia of $10.4 million with a corresponding increase to deferred revenue. This amount is being amortized to advertising revenue over the remaining term of the exhibitor services agreement between RCI and National CineMedia (“ESA”) following the units of revenue method. This transaction caused a proportionate increase in the Company’s Additional Investments Tranche and increased our ownership share in National CineMedia to 22.1 million common units. As a result, on a fully diluted basis, we own a 19.9% interest in NCM, Inc. as of June 30, 2011.

 

(2)                                 The Company’s share in the net income of National CineMedia with respect to the Additional Investments Tranche totaled $1.6 million and $1.7 million during the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, respectively. Such amounts have been included as a component of “Earnings recognized from NCM” in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

(3)                                 During the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, the Company received $18.9 million and $22.0 million, respectively, in cash distributions from National CineMedia (including payments received under the tax receivable agreement). Approximately $3.3 million and $3.7 million of these cash distributions received during the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, respectively, were attributable to the Additional Investments Tranche and were recognized as a reduction in our investment in National CineMedia. The remaining amounts were recognized in equity earnings during each of these periods and have been included as components of “Earnings recognized from NCM” in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

As a result of the amendment to the ESA and related modification payment, the Company recognizes various types of other revenue from National CineMedia, including per patron and per digital screen theatre access fees, net of payments for on-screen advertising time provided to our beverage concessionaire, other NCM revenue and amortization of upfront ESA modification fees utilizing the units of revenue amortization method.  These revenues are presented as a component of other operating revenues in the Company’s financial statements and consist of the following amounts (in millions):

Other Investments

 

During the quarter ended March 31, 2011, we announced the creation of Open Road Films, a new distribution company that is jointly owned by us and AMC.  The Company’s cumulative cash investment in Open Road totaled approximately $20.0 million as of June 30, 2011. We account for our investment in Open Road following the equity method of accounting.  For the two quarters ended June 30, 2011, the Company recorded a loss of approximately $1.5 million, representing its share of the net loss of Open Road.  The carrying value of the Company’s investment in Open Road as of June 30, 2011 was approximately $18.5 million and is included in the unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet as a component of “Other Non-Current Assets.”

 

The Company also maintains an investment in RealD, Inc., an entity specializing in the licensing of 3D technologies. The carrying value of the Company’s investment in RealD, Inc. as of June 30, 2011 was approximately $28.6 million. See Note 11—“Fair Value of Financial Instruments” for a discussion of fair value estimation methods and assumptions with respect to the Company’s investment in RealD, Inc. The Company has recorded this investment within “Other Non-Current Assets.”

Regal Cinemas Sixth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement— As described further in Note 5 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements, on May 19, 2010, Regal Cinemas entered into a sixth amended and restated credit agreement (the “Amended Senior Credit Facility”), with Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch, as Administrative Agent (“Credit Suisse”) and the lenders party thereto (the “Lenders”) which amended, restated and refinanced the fifth amended and restated credit agreement (the “Prior Senior Credit Facility”) among Regal Cinemas, Credit Suisse, Cayman Islands Branch, and the lenders party thereto. The Amended Senior Credit Facility consisted of a term loan facility (the “Term Facility”) in an aggregate principal amount of $1,250.0 million with a final maturity date in November 2016 and a revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Facility”) in an aggregate principal amount of $85.0 million with a final maturity date in May 2015. The obligations under the Amended Senior Credit Facility are guaranteed by certain subsidiaries of Regal Cinemas, and on a limited recourse basis by REH (collectively, the “Guarantors”) as described in greater detail in Note 5 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

On February 23, 2011, Regal Cinemas entered into a permitted secured refinancing agreement (the “Refinancing Agreement”) with Regal, the Guarantors, Credit Suisse, and the Lenders, which amended and refinanced the Term Facility under the Amended Senior Credit Facility.  Pursuant to the Refinancing Agreement, Regal Cinemas consummated a permitted secured refinancing of the Term Facility in the amount of $1,006.0 million, and in accordance therewith, the Lenders advanced term loans in an aggregate principal amount of $1,006.0 million with a final maturity date in August 2017 (the “New Term Loans”). Together with other amounts provided by Regal Cinemas, proceeds of the New Term Loans were applied to repay all of the outstanding principal and accrued and unpaid interest on the Term Facility under the Amended Senior Credit Facility in effect immediately prior to the making of the New Term Loans.

 

In addition to extending the maturity date of the New Term Loans, the Refinancing Agreement also amended the Amended Senior Credit Facility by reducing the interest rate on the New Term Loans, by providing, at Regal Cinemas’ option, either a base rate or an adjusted LIBOR rate plus, in each case, an applicable margin that is determined according to the consolidated leverage ratio of Regal Cinemas and its subsidiaries. Such applicable margin will be either 2.00% or 2.25% in the case of base rate loans and either 3.00% or 3.25% in the case of LIBOR rate loans. The Refinancing Agreement also amended the Second Amended and Restated Guaranty and Collateral Agreement, dated May 19, 2010, to exclude Margin Stock (as such term is defined therein) from the grant of the security interest in the Collateral (as such term is defined therein) used to secure the obligations under the Amended Senior Credit Facility.

 

In connection with the additional offerings of the Company’s 9⅛% Senior Notes (defined below) during the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 described below, the Company used a portion of the net proceeds to repay approximately $234.6 million of the Amended Senior Credit Facility. As a result of this repayment, coupled with the execution of the Refinancing Agreement, the Company recorded an aggregate loss on extinguishment of debt of approximately $21.9 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2011.

 

As of June 30, 2011 and December 30, 2010, borrowings of $1,001.0 million and $1,232.5 million (net of debt discount), respectively, were outstanding under the New Term Loans at an effective interest rate of 5.56% (as of June 30, 2011) and 5.42% (as of December 30, 2010), after the impact of the interest rate swaps described below is taken into account.

 

Regal 9⅛% Senior Notes— On August 10, 2010, Regal entered into an Underwriting Agreement with Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, Barclays Capital Inc., Banc of America Securities LLC and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., as the representatives of the underwriters, with respect to the Company’s issuance and sale of $275.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 9⅛% Senior Notes due 2018 (the “9⅛% Senior Notes”). On August 16, 2010, the Company issued the 9⅛% Senior Notes under the Indenture with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as trustee (the “Trustee”). The net proceeds from the offering, after deducting offering expenses paid by the Company, were approximately $269.5 million. The Company used a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to repurchase a portion of the 6¼% Convertible Senior Notes as described below under

Table of Contents

 

the heading “Regal 6¼% Convertible Senior Notes.”

 

On January 4, 2011, Regal issued and sold $150.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 9⅛% Senior Notes at a price equal to 104.5% of their face value. The notes were issued under an existing Indenture entered into by and between the Company and the Trustee, as supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture, dated January 7, 2011.  In addition, on February 10, 2011, Regal issued and sold $100.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 9⅛% Senior Notes at a price equal to 104.5% of their face value. The notes were issued on February 15, 2011 under an existing Indenture entered into by and between the Company and the Trustee, as supplemented by the First Supplemental Indenture, and the Second Supplemental Indenture, dated February 15, 2011. The notes issued in 2011 constitute additional securities under the existing Indenture and are treated as a single series with, and have the same terms as, and will be fungible with, the $275.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Company’s 9⅛% Senior Notes previously issued under the Indenture in 2010. The net proceeds from the 2011 offerings, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions by the Company, were approximately $257.8 million. The Company used the net proceeds to repay approximately $234.6 million of the Amended Senior Credit Facility and for general corporate purposes.

 

The 9⅛% Senior Notes bear interest at a rate of 9.125% per year, payable semiannually in arrears in cash on February 15 and August 15 of each year. The 9⅛% Senior Notes mature on August 15, 2018. The 9⅛% Senior Notes are the Company’s senior unsecured obligations. They rank on parity with all of the Company’s existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness and prior to all of the Company’s subordinated indebtedness. The 9⅛% Senior Notes are effectively subordinated to all of the Company’s future secured indebtedness to the extent of the assets securing that indebtedness and to any indebtedness and other liabilities of the Company’s subsidiaries. None of the Company’s subsidiaries initially guarantee any of the Company’s obligations with respect to the 9⅛% Senior Notes.

 

Prior to August 15, 2014, the Company may redeem all or any part of the 9⅛% Senior Notes at its option at 100% of the principal amount plus a make-whole premium. The Company may redeem the 9⅛% Senior Notes in whole or in part at any time on or after August 15, 2014 at the redemption prices specified in the Indenture. In addition, prior to August 15, 2013, the Company may redeem up to 35% of the original aggregate principal amount of the 9⅛% Senior Notes from the net proceeds of certain equity offerings at the redemption price specified in the Indenture.

 

If the Company undergoes a change of control (as defined in the Indenture), holders may require the Company to repurchase all or a portion of their 9⅛% Senior Notes at a price equal to 101% of the principal amount of the 9⅛% Senior Notes being repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, to the repurchase date.

 

The Indenture contains covenants that limit the Company’s (and its restricted subsidiaries’) ability to, among other things: (i) incur additional indebtedness; (ii) pay dividends on or make other distributions in respect of its capital stock, purchase or redeem capital stock, or purchase, redeem or otherwise acquire or retire certain subordinated obligations; (iii) enter into certain transactions with affiliates; (iv) permit, directly or indirectly, it to create, incur, or suffer to exist any lien, except in certain circumstances; (v) create or permit encumbrances or restrictions on its ability to pay dividends or make distributions on its capital stock, make loans or advances to its subsidiaries (or the Company), or transfer any properties or assets to its subsidiaries (or the Company); and (vi) merge or consolidate with other companies or transfer all or substantially all of its assets. These covenants are, however, subject to a number of important limitations and exceptions. The Indenture contains other customary terms, including, but not limited to, events of default, which, if any of them occurs, would permit or require the principal, premium, if any, interest and any other monetary obligations on all the then outstanding 9⅛% Senior Notes to be due and payable immediately.

 

Regal Cinemas 8⅝% Senior Notes—On July 15, 2009, Regal Cinemas issued $400.0 million in aggregate principal amount of the 8⅝% Senior Notes due 2019 (the “8⅝% Senior Notes”) at a price equal to 97.561% of their face value in a transaction exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Interest on the 8⅝% Senior Notes is payable semi-annually in arrears on January 15 and July 15 of each year, beginning on January 15, 2010. The 8⅝% Senior Notes will mature on July 15, 2019.

 

The 8⅝% Senior Notes are Regal Cinemas’ general senior unsecured obligations and rank equally in right of payment with all of its existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness; and senior in right of payment to all of

Table of Contents

 

Regal Cinemas’ existing and future subordinated indebtedness. The 8⅝% Senior Notes are effectively subordinated to all of Regal Cinemas’ existing and future secured indebtedness, including all borrowings under the Amended Senior Credit Facility, to the extent of the value of the collateral securing such indebtedness, and are structurally subordinated to all existing and future indebtedness and other liabilities of any of Regal Cinemas’ subsidiaries that are not guarantors of the 8⅝% Senior Notes.

 

The 8⅝% Senior Notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a joint and several senior unsecured basis by Regal and all of Regal Cinemas’ existing and future domestic restricted subsidiaries that guarantee its other indebtedness (collectively, with Regal, the “Note Guarantors”). The guarantees of the 8⅝% Senior Notes are the Note Guarantors’ general senior unsecured obligations and rank equally in right of payment with all of the Note Guarantors’ existing and future senior unsecured indebtedness, including the 9⅛% Senior Notes and rank senior in right of payment to all of the Note Guarantors’ existing and future subordinated indebtedness. The 8⅝% Senior Notes are effectively subordinated to all of the Note Guarantors’ existing and future secured indebtedness, including the guarantees under the Amended Senior Credit Facility, to the extent of the value of the collateral securing such indebtedness, and are structurally subordinated to all existing and future indebtedness and other liabilities of any of the Note Guarantors’ subsidiaries that is not a guarantor of the 8⅝% Senior Notes.

 

Regal 6¼% Convertible Senior Notes— As further described in Note 5 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements, on March 10, 2008, Regal issued $200.0 million aggregate principal amount of 6¼% convertible senior notes due March 15, 2011 (the “6¼% Convertible Senior Notes”).

 

Subsequent to the issuance of the 9⅛% Senior Notes described above, during the year ended December 30, 2010 (“fiscal 2010”), the Company used a portion of the net proceeds from the offering to repurchase a total of approximately $125.3 million aggregate principal amount of the 6¼% Convertible Senior Notes, in a series of privately negotiated transactions. As a result of the repurchases, the Company recorded a $5.2 million loss on extinguishment of debt during fiscal 2010.  During March 2011, we redeemed the remaining $74.7 million aggregate principal amount of the 6¼% Convertible Senior Notes at a redemption price of 100% of their principal amount, plus accrued interest.

 

Interest Rate Swaps

 

As described in Note 5 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements, during the year ended December 31, 2009 (“fiscal 2009”), Regal Cinemas entered into four hedging relationships via four distinct interest rate swap agreements with maturity terms of two to three years each from the respective effective dates of the swaps, which require Regal Cinemas to pay interest at fixed rates ranging from 2.15% to 2.53% and receive interest at a variable rate. These four interest rate swap agreements were designated to hedge approximately $1,000.0 million of variable rate debt obligations at an effective rate of approximately 5.57% as of June 30, 2011 and 5.82% as of December 30, 2010.

 

Under the terms of the Company’s effective interest rate swap agreements as of June 30, 2011, Regal Cinemas pays interest at various fixed rates ranging from 2.15% to 2.53% and receives interest at a variable rate based on the 3-month LIBOR. The 3-month LIBOR rate on each reset date determines the variable portion of the interest rate-swaps for the following three-month period. The interest rate swaps settle any accrued interest for cash on the last day of each calendar quarter, until expiration. At such dates, the differences to be paid or received on the interest rate swaps will be included in interest expense.  No premium or discount was incurred upon the Company entering into the interest rate swaps, because the pay and receive rates on the interest rate swaps represented prevailing rates for each counterparty at the time the interest rate swaps were entered into. The interest rate swaps qualify for cash flow hedge accounting treatment and as such, the Company has effectively hedged its exposure to variability in the future cash flows attributable to the 3-month LIBOR on approximately $1,000.0 million of variable rate obligations. The change in the fair values of the interest rate swaps is recorded on the Company’s consolidated balance sheet as an asset or liability with the effective portion of the interest rate swaps’ gains or losses reported as a component of other comprehensive income (loss) and the ineffective portion reported in earnings (interest expense). As interest expense is accrued on the debt obligation, amounts in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) related to the designated hedging instruments (the four interest rate swaps) will be reclassified into earnings to obtain a net cost on the debt obligation equal to the effective yield of the fixed rate of each swap.

Other Long-Term Obligations—Other long-term obligations not explicitly discussed herein are described in Note 5 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements and incorporated by reference herein.

 

5. INCOME TAXES

 

The provision for income taxes of $24.3 million and $4.3 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, respectively, reflect effective tax rates of approximately 41.1% and 47.8%, respectively.  The provision for income taxes of $10.0 million and $15.4 million for the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, respectively, reflect effective tax rates of approximately 47.4% and 42.2%, respectively. The decrease in the effective tax rate for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 was primarily attributable to the state tax effects of the $18.4 million ($11.5 million after related tax effects) loss on debt extinguishment associated with the Amended Senior Credit Facility recorded during the quarter ended July 1, 2010 and the accrual of interest on uncertain tax positions. The increase in the effective tax rate for the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 was primarily attributable to the accrual of interest on uncertain tax positions and other state and local tax matters. The effective tax rates for the quarters and two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010 also reflect the impact of certain non-deductible expenses and income tax credits.

 

In assessing the realizable value of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which these temporary differences become deductible.  The Company maintains a valuation allowance against deferred tax assets of $15.6 million as of June 30, 2011 and December 30, 2010 as management believes it is more likely than not that certain deferred tax assets will not be realized in future tax periods. Future reductions in the valuation allowance associated with a change in management’s determination of the Company’s ability to realize these deferred tax assets will result in a decrease in the provision for income taxes.

 

During the quarter ended June 30, 2011, the Company reached an agreement with certain state taxing authorities regarding an uncertain tax position.  Settlement of the uncertain tax position resulted in a reduction to accrued gross interest and penalties of approximately $2.7 million during the two quarters ended June 30, 2011.  Coupled with a $0.8 million accrual of interest on other uncertain tax positions, the reduction in interest and penalties for the settlement has resulted in accrued gross interest and penalties of approximately $5.0 million as of June 30, 2011.  As of December 30, 2010, accrued gross interest and penalties totaled approximately $6.9 million.

 

The Company and its subsidiaries collectively file income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various state jurisdictions.  The Company is not subject to U.S. federal examinations by tax authorities for years before 2007, and with limited exceptions, is not subject to state income tax examinations for years before 2006. However, the taxing authorities still have the ability to review the propriety of tax attributes created in closed tax years if such tax attributes are utilized in an open tax year.

 

6. CAPITAL STOCK AND SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION

Table of Contents

 

Of the authorized shares of Class A common stock, 18.0 million shares were sold in connection with the Company’s initial public offering in May 2002. The Company’s Class A common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the trading symbol “RGC.” As of June 30, 2011, 130,858,826 shares of Class A common stock were outstanding. Of the authorized shares of Class B common stock, 23,708,639 shares were outstanding as of June 30, 2011, all of which are held by Anschutz Company (“Anschutz”). Each share of Class B common stock converts into a single share of Class A common stock at the option of the holder or upon certain transfers of a holder’s Class B common stock. Each holder of Class B common stock is entitled to ten votes for each outstanding share of Class B common stock owned by that stockholder on every matter properly submitted to the stockholders for their vote. Of the authorized shares of the preferred stock, no shares were issued and outstanding as of June 30, 2011. The Class A common stock is entitled to a single vote for each outstanding share of Class A common stock on every matter properly submitted to the stockholders for a vote. Except as required by law, the Class A and Class B common stock vote together as a single class on all matters submitted to the stockholders. The material terms and provisions of the Company’s certificate of incorporation affecting the relative rights of the Class A common stock and the Class B common stock are described in Note 9 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

Warrants

 

No warrants to acquire the Company’s Class A or Class B common stock were outstanding as of June 30, 2011.

 

Share-Based Compensation

 

In 2002, the Company established the Regal Entertainment Group 2002 Stock Incentive Plan (the “Incentive Plan”), which provides for the granting of incentive stock options and non-qualified stock options to officers, employees and consultants of the Company. As described below under “Restricted Stock” and “Performance Share Units,” the Incentive Plan also provides for grants of restricted stock and performance shares that are subject to restrictions and risks of forfeiture. Readers should refer to Note 9 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information related to these awards and the Incentive Plan.

 

Stock Options

 

As of June 30, 2011, options to purchase a total of 510,038 shares of Class A common stock were outstanding under the Incentive Plan, and 980,862 shares remain available for future issuance under the Incentive Plan. There were no stock options granted during the quarters and two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010 and no compensation expense related to stock options was recorded during the quarters and two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010.

 

We receive a tax deduction for certain stock option exercises during the period the options are exercised, generally for the excess of the price at which the stock is sold over the exercise price of the options.  We are required to report excess tax benefits from the award of equity instruments as financing cash flows.  Excess tax benefits are recorded when a deduction reported for tax return purposes for an award of equity instruments exceeds the cumulative compensation cost for the instruments recognized for financial reporting purposes. For the two quarters ended June 30, 2011, our unaudited condensed consolidated statement of cash flows reflects less than $0.1 million of excess tax benefits as financing cash flows. Net cash proceeds from the exercise of stock options were $0.1 million for the two quarters ended June 30, 2011. The actual income tax benefit realized from stock option exercises was approximately $0.1 million for the same period.  For the two quarters ended July 1, 2010, our unaudited condensed consolidated statement of cash flows reflects less than $0.1 million of excess tax benefits as financing cash flows. Net cash proceeds from the exercise of stock options were $0.7 million for the two quarters ended July 1, 2010. The actual income tax benefit realized from stock option exercises was approximately $0.1 million for the same period.

Restricted Stock

 

As described in Note 9 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements, the Company maintains the Incentive Plan which provides for restricted stock awards to officers, directors and key employees. Under the Incentive Plan, shares of Class A common stock of the Company may be granted at nominal cost to officers, directors and key employees, subject to a continued employment restriction.  On January 12, 2011, 349,856 restricted shares were granted under the Incentive Plan at nominal cost to officers, directors and key employees.  These awards vest 25% at the end of each year for four years in the case of officers and key employees and vest 100% at the end of one year in the case of directors. The closing price of our Class A common stock on the date of this grant was $12.21 per share.

 

During the quarter ended March 31, 2011, the Company withheld approximately 96,630 shares of restricted stock at an aggregate cost of approximately $1.2 million, as permitted by the applicable equity award agreements, to satisfy employee tax withholding requirements related to the vesting of 316,803 restricted stock awards.

 

During the quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, the Company recognized approximately $1.2 million and $1.1 million, respectively, of share-based compensation expense related to restricted share grants.  During the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, the Company recognized approximately $2.3 million and $2.2 million, respectively, of share-based compensation expense related to restricted share grants.  Such expense is presented as a component of “General and administrative expenses.” The compensation expense for these awards was determined based on the market price of our stock at the date of grant applied to the total numbers of shares that were anticipated to fully vest.  As of June 30, 2011, we have unrecognized compensation expense of $9.2 million associated with restricted stock awards.

 

The following table represents the restricted stock activity for the two quarters ended June 30, 2011:

During the two quarters ended June 30, 2011, the Company paid two cash dividends of $0.21 on each share of outstanding restricted stock totaling approximately $0.4 million.  During the two quarters ended July 1, 2010, the Company paid two cash dividends of $0.18 on each share of outstanding restricted stock totaling approximately $0.4 million.

 

Performance Share Units

 

The Incentive Plan also provides for grants in the form of performance share units to officers, directors and key employees. Performance share agreements are entered into between the Company and each grantee of performance share units (each, a “Performance Agreement”).  Our original Performance Agreement covered performance share grants issued through the year ended January 1, 2009, and is described in Note 9 to the 2010 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements (each, a “2006 Performance Agreement”).

 

In 2009, we adopted an amended and restated form of Performance Agreement (each, a “2009 Performance Agreement”).  On January 12, 2011, 376,902 performance shares were granted under our Incentive Plan at nominal cost to officers and key employees. Under the 2009 Performance Agreement, which is described in the section entitled “Compensation Discussion and Analysis — Elements of Compensation — Performance Shares,” of our 2011 proxy statement, each performance share represents the right to receive from 0% to 150% of the target numbers of shares of restricted Class A common stock. The number of shares of restricted common stock earned

 

16



Table of Contents

 

will be determined based on the attainment of specified performance goals by January 12, 2014 (the third anniversary of the grant date) set forth in the 2009 Performance Agreement.  Such performance shares vest on January 12, 2015 (the fourth anniversary of their respective grant date).  The shares are subject to the terms and conditions of the Incentive Plan. The closing price of our Class A common stock on the date of this grant was $12.21 per share, which approximates the respective grant date fair value of the awards.

 

Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the 2006 and 2009 Performance Agreements, grantees will be issued shares of restricted common stock of the Company in an amount determined by the attainment of Company performance criteria set forth in such Performance Agreement. The shares of restricted common stock received upon attainment of the performance criteria will be subject to further vesting over a period of time, provided the grantee remains a service provider to the Company during such period.

 

During the quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, the Company recognized approximately $1.1 million and $1.0 million, respectively, of share-based compensation expense related to performance share grants.  During the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, the Company recognized approximately $1.8 million and $1.4 million, respectively, of share-based compensation expense related to performance share grants. Such expense is presented as a component of “General and administrative expenses.”  As of June 30, 2011, we have unrecognized compensation expense of $10.7 million associated with performance share units.  During the quarter ended March 31, 2011, 173,451 performance share awards were effectively cancelled.  These awards were scheduled to vest on January 10, 2011, the one year anniversary of the calculation date. As of the calculation date, which was January 10, 2010, threshold performance goals were not satisfied, and therefore, all 173,451 restricted shares under this performance grant were cancelled as of January 10, 2011.

 

The following table summarizes information about the Company’s number of performance shares for the two quarters ended June 30, 2011:

7. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Our theatres must comply with Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (the “ADA”) to the extent that such properties are “public accommodations” and/or “commercial facilities” as defined by the ADA. Compliance with the ADA requires that public accommodations “reasonably accommodate” individuals with disabilities and that new construction or alterations made to “commercial facilities” conform to accessibility guidelines unless “structurally impracticable” for new construction or technically infeasible for alterations. Non-compliance with the ADA could result in the imposition of injunctive relief, fines, awards of damages to private litigants and additional capital expenditures to remedy such non-compliance.

 

In prior years, private litigants and the Department of Justice (“DOJ”) had filed claims against us or our subsidiaries alleging that a number of our theatres with stadium seating violated the ADA because these theatres allegedly failed to provide wheelchair-bound patrons with lines of sight comparable to those available to other members of the general public and denied persons in wheelchairs access to the stadium portion of the theatres. On June 8, 2005, Regal reached an agreement with the DOJ resolving and dismissing the private litigants’ claims and all claims made by the United States under the ADA. On December 9, 2010, the parties renewed the Consent Decree for another three year term. From time to time, we receive claims that the stadium seating offered by our theatres allegedly violates the ADA. In these instances, we seek to resolve or dismiss these claims based on the terms of the DOJ settlement or under applicable ADA standards.

 

We believe that we are in substantial compliance with all current applicable regulations relating to

 

17



Table of Contents

 

accommodations for the disabled. We intend to comply with future regulations in this regard and except as set forth above, we do not currently anticipate that compliance will require us to expend substantial funds.

 

In addition, we, from time to time, receive letters from the state officials in states where we operate theatres regarding investigation into the accessibility of our theatres to persons with visual impairments or the deaf and hard of hearing. In addition, on July 20, 2010, the DOJ issued Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking concerning the provision of closed captioning and descriptive audio within the theatre environment. Significantly, this is the first time the DOJ has stated that while open captioning may not be required by the ADA, closed captioning is so required. We believe we provide the members of the visually and hearing impaired communities with reasonable access to the movie-going experience but are further evaluating our options in the digital format and potential compliance issues related to same.

 

Our theatre operations are also subject to federal, state and local laws governing such matters as wages, working conditions, citizenship and health and sanitation and environmental protection requirements. On December 9, 2010, we learned that the District Attorney for Kings County, New York, filed a criminal complaint against the Company and the manager of the Company’s theater located at 3907 Shore Parkway, Brooklyn, New York (the “Sheepshead Bay Theater”). The complaint alleges, among other things, that there were multiple instances where sewage from the Sheepshead Bay Theater was released into the waters of the State of New York without a valid permit. The actual costs that will be incurred in connection with this action cannot be quantified at this time and will depend on many unknown factors. While the Company intends to vigorously defend these matters, the Company cannot predict the outcome; however, it is likely that settlement would include a monetary penalty, although an amount cannot be predicted. These matters are subject to inherent uncertainties and management’s view of these matters may change in the future. We believe that we are in substantial compliance with all relevant laws and regulations.

 

We and certain of our subsidiary corporations are also presently involved in various legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of our business operations, including, but not limited to, personal injury claims, employment and contractual matters. We believe we have adequately provided for the litigation or settlement of such matters. Management believes any additional liability with respect to these claims and disputes will not be material in the aggregate to our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

8. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

During the quarters and two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, Regal Cinemas incurred less than $0.1 million of expenses payable to Anschutz affiliates for certain advertising services. Also during the quarters and two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, Regal Cinemas received less than $0.1 million from an Anschutz affiliate for rent and other expenses related to a theatre facility.

 

During the quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, the Company received approximately $0.2 million and $0.1 million, respectively, from an Anschutz affiliate for management fees related to a theatre site in Los Angeles, California.  During each of the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010, the Company received approximately $0.3 million from the Anschutz affiliate for such management fees.  As of December 31, 2009, the Company was due approximately $0.6 million from the Anschutz affiliate related to certain reimbursable costs (primarily pre-opening costs) associated with the theatre.  This amount was paid to Regal during the quarter ended April 1, 2010.

 

9. EARNINGS PER SHARE

 

We compute earnings per share of Class A and Class B common stock using the two-class method. Basic earnings per share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares and, if dilutive, common stock equivalents outstanding during the period. Potential common stock equivalents consist of the incremental common shares issuable upon the exercise of common stock options, restricted stock and performance shares, the assumed conversion of the 6¼% Convertible Senior Notes and the warrant issued in connection with the 6¼% Convertible Senior Notes. The dilutive effect of outstanding stock options, restricted shares, performance shares and the warrant issued in connection with the 6¼% Convertible Senior Notes is reflected in diluted earnings

Table of Contents

 

per share by application of the treasury-stock method. The dilutive effect of assumed conversion of the 6¼% Convertible Senior Notes is reflected in diluted earnings per share by application of the if-converted method. In addition, the computation of the diluted earnings per share of Class A common stock assumes the conversion of Class B common stock, while the diluted earnings per share of Class B common stock does not assume the conversion of those shares.

 

The rights, including the liquidation and dividend rights, of the holders of our Class A and Class B common stock are identical, except with respect to voting. The undistributed earnings for the periods presented are allocated based on the contractual participation rights of the Class A and Class B common shares as if the earnings for the periods presented had been distributed. As the liquidation and dividend rights are identical, the undistributed earnings are allocated on a proportionate basis. Further, as we assume the conversion of Class B common stock in the computation of the diluted earnings per share of Class A common stock, the undistributed earnings are equal to net income attributable to controlling interest for that computation.

 

The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share of Class A and Class B common stock (in millions, except share and per share data):

10. RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In January 2010, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2010-06, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (Topic 820)—Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements, (“ASU 2010-06”). This Update provides a greater level of disaggregated information and enhanced disclosures about valuation techniques and inputs to fair value measurements. ASU 2010-06 is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2009 and became effective for the Company as of April 1, 2010 except for certain disclosure requirements. Disclosures about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in the roll forward of activity in Level 3 fair value measurements are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010, and for interim periods within those fiscal years and is effective for the Company as of the beginning of fiscal 2011.

 

In June 2011, the FASB issued new guidance under ASC Topic 220, Presentation of Comprehensive Income, to amend the presentation of comprehensive income to allow an entity the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements.  In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income.  The guidance eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity.  This guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011, and is to be applied retrospectively.  Because this guidance impacts presentation only, it will have no effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

 

11. FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

Fair value refers to the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants in the market in which the entity transacts. The inputs used to develop these fair value measurements are established in a hierarchy, which ranks the quality and reliability of the information used to determine fair value. The fair value classification is based on levels of inputs. Assets and liabilities that are carried at fair value are classified and disclosed in one of the following categories described in ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures:

 

Level 1:

 

Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

 

 

Level 2:

 

Observable market based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data.

 

 

 

Level 3:

 

Unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data.

 

The following table summarizes the fair value hierarchy of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2011:

(1)                                  The Company maintains an investment in RealD, Inc., an entity specializing in the licensing of 3D technologies. In connection with the RealD, Inc. motion picture license agreement, the Company received a ten-year option to purchase 1,222,780 shares of RealD, Inc. common stock at approximately $0.00667 per share. The stock options vest in three tranches upon the achievement of screen installation targets. During fiscal 2010, the Company vested in all three tranches to purchase a total of 1,222,780 shares of RealD, Inc. common stock. The Company exercised its right to purchase shares of RealD, Inc. common stock during December 2010. The held shares of RealD, Inc. stock are accounted for as available-for-sale equity securities and are recorded in the consolidated balance sheet in “Other Non-Current Assets” with a corresponding amount recorded to “Other Non-Current Liabilities” on the dates at which the options vested. The amount recorded in “Other Non-Current Liabilities” is being amortized on a straight-line basis to reduce RealD licensing expense recorded in “Other operating expenses” in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statements of income. Recurring fair value adjustments to these shares are recorded to “Other Non-Current Assets” with a corresponding entry to “Accumulated other comprehensive loss” on a quarterly basis. The fair value of the RealD, Inc. shares is determined using RealD, Inc.’s publicly traded common stock price, which falls under Level 2 of the valuation hierarchy, after consideration of the lock-

up period to which the Company is subject. As of June 30, 2011, the carrying value of the RealD, Inc. shares held by the Company was approximately $28.6 million. The corresponding amounts recorded in “Accrued expenses,” “Other Non-Current Liabilities” and “Accumulated other comprehensive loss, net” as of June 30, 2011 were $1.8 million, $19.2 million and $2.9 million (net of tax), respectively. The amount recorded in “Other Non-Current Liabilities” is being amortized on a straight-line basis to reduce RealD, Inc. license expense. Such amortization totaled $1.7 million for the two quarters ended June 30, 2011.

 

(2)                                  The fair value of the Company’s interest rate swaps described in Note 4—“Debt Obligations” is based on Level 2 inputs, which include observable inputs such as dealer quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, and represents the estimated amount Regal Cinemas would receive or pay to terminate the agreements taking into consideration various factors, including current interest rates, credit risk and counterparty credit risk. The counterparties to the Company’s interest rate swaps are major financial institutions. The Company evaluates the bond ratings of the financial institutions and believes that credit risk is at an acceptably low level. As of June 30, 2011, the aggregate fair value the Company’s four interest rate swaps was determined to be approximately $(15.8) million, which was recorded as components of “Other Non-Current Liabilities” ($11.0 million) and “Accrued expenses” ($4.8 million) with a corresponding amount of $(9.6) million, net of tax, recorded to “Accumulated other comprehensive loss, net.”  As of December 30, 2010, the aggregate fair value of the Company’s four interest rate swaps was determined to be approximately $(28.2) million, which was recorded as components of “Other Non-Current Liabilities” ($24.6 million) and “Accrued expenses” ($3.6 million) with a corresponding amount of $(17.1) million, net of tax, recorded to “Accumulated other comprehensive loss, net.” These interest rate swaps exhibited no ineffectiveness during the quarters and two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010 and accordingly, the net gain (loss) on the swaps of $7.5 million and $(5.2) million, respectively, were reported as a component of other comprehensive loss for the two quarters ended June 30, 2011 and July 1, 2010.

 

In addition, the Company is required to disclose the fair value of financial instruments that are not recognized in the statement of financial position for which it is practicable to estimate that value. The methods and assumptions used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instrument are as follows:

 

Cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities:

 

The carrying amounts approximate fair value because of the short maturity of these instruments.

 

Long term obligations, excluding capital lease obligations, lease financing arrangements and other:

 

The fair value of the Amended Senior Credit Facility described in Note 4—“Debt Obligations,” which consists of the New Term Loans and the Revolving Facility, is estimated based on quoted prices (Level 2 inputs as described in ASC Topic 820) as of June 30, 2011 and December 30, 2010. The associated interest rates are based on floating rates identified by reference to market rates and are assumed to approximate fair value. The fair values of the 9⅛% Senior Notes, the 8⅝% Senior Notes and the 6¼% Convertible Senior Notes are estimated based on quoted prices (Level 1 inputs as described in ASC Topic 820) for these issuances as of June 30, 2011 and December 30, 2010. The aggregate carrying values and fair values of long-term debt at June 30, 2011 and December 30, 2010 consist of the following:

On July 28, 2011, the Company declared a cash dividend of $0.21 per share on each share of the Company’s Class A and Class B common stock (including outstanding restricted stock), payable on September 19, 2011, to stockholders of record on September 9, 2011.

 

Subsequent to the quarter ended June 30, 2011, Regal Cinemas entered into an additional hedging relationship via a distinct interest rate swap agreement with an effective date of June 30, 2012 and a maturity term of three years from the effective date of the swap.  The swap will require Regal Cinemas to pay interest at a fixed rate of 1.82% and receive interest at a variable rate. The interest rate swap is designated to hedge $200 million of variable rate debt obligations.
