Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On December 26, 2013, Regal Cinemas, Inc. (RCI), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Regal Entertainment Group, amended and restated its existing Exhibitor Services Agreement (ESA) with National CineMedia, LLC (NCM LLC). The ESA was modified in connection with the December 26, 2013 spin-off by NCM LLC of its Fathom Events business to AC JV, LLC (AC JV), a newly-formed Delaware limited liability company owned, directly and indirectly, 32% by each of RCI, American Multi-Cinema, Inc. (AMC) and Cinemark USA, Inc. (Cinemark, and collectively with RCI and AMC, the Founding Members) and 4% by NCM LLC. AMC and Cinemark also amended and restated their respective ESAs with NCM LLC in connection with the spin-off. The ESAs were modified to remove those provisions addressing the rights and obligations related to digital programing services of the Fathom Events business. Those provisions are now contained in Amended and Restated Digital Programming Exhibitor Services Agreements (the Digital ESAs) that were entered into on December 26, 2013 by NCM LLC and each of the Founding Members, including RCI, respectively. These Digital ESAs were then assigned by NCM LLC to AC JV as part of the Fathom spin-off.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
