RealD Inc. (NYSE: RLD), a leading global licensor of 3D technologies, today announced financial results for its first quarter of fiscal 2014 ended June 30, 2013.
“We had a challenging first quarter, as moviegoers were more selective than expected regarding the films they chose to experience in 3D. Collaborating with our exhibitor and studio partners we have recently initiated a variety of new industry efforts to further promote the appeal of seeing films in RealD and the premium RealD experience,” said Michael V. Lewis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RealD.
“Importantly, we continue to advance our international expansion initiatives, highlighted by today’s announcement of our largest new contract win in several years,” Lewis added, “as Cinemex, the sixth-largest exhibitor in the world, has selected RealD as its exclusive circuit-wide 3D technology provider and will equip RealD 3D technology in up to 700 auditoriums throughout the Cinemex circuit in Mexico. Approximately 540 alternative 3D systems will be replaced with RealD 3D within the next two years, ensuring that Cinemex audiences will experience the brightest and most immersive 3D available.”
