Segment margin from the Company's investment and production business was (2.0)% in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared with a segment margin of 8.0% in the fourth quarter of 2011. This decrease in segment margin was mainly due to the lower-than-expected box office performance of The Last Tycoon.

Segment margin from the Company's movie theater business reached 56.7% in the fourth quarter of 2012, which is in-line with the Company's normal business based on current theater operations.
