“It was just over two years ago that we outlined our strategy to transform Cinedigm to capitalize on the digital distribution revolution that is changing the entire entertainment business. Today, we are fully executing against that strategic plan in all areas,” said Chris McGurk, Chairman and CEO. “Our digital cinema services group continues to manage our 11,700 strong screen deployment while our Software group is launching key new products and expanding our markets. We dramatically improved our balance sheet with a non-recourse debt refinancing that significantly reduced our cost of capital and extended our debt maturities. And, most importantly, the digital revolution has triggered opportunities for success in our entertainment group that are even greater than we previously anticipated. New platforms, distribution outlets and viewing devices are driving an ever-increasing demand by consumers to view our new releases and our vast and expanding library of digital content. We are moving aggressively to take advantage of this sea change in consumer viewing behavior.”
