Cash and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2013, Bona had cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash totaling US$33.0 million, compared with US$28.0 million as of December 31, 2012. Operating cash flow for the second quarter was a net outflow of approximately US$9.6 million, compared with US$17.0 million for the second quarter of 2012. The change in cash flow from operations was mainly attributable to investment and production expenses associated with films that the Company expects to release in 2013 .

Business Outlook

Based on current market and operating conditions, the Company expects non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2013 to be in the range of US$3.0 million to US$3.5 million.

"Looking ahead to the remainder of 2013, we will continue to focus on growing our complementary business segments through the ongoing expansion of our theater network, while we build upon our leading position in China's film distribution market by leveraging our diverse second-half release schedule, which includes several films that we believe have strong box office potential. In addition to our aggressive theater development strategy and compelling second-half release slate, our international expansion initiatives remain on track and are expected to create additional revenue opportunities for the Company. We have built a strong foundation for future growth and remain excited about what the future holds for Bona. We currently anticipate non-GAAP net income of $3.0 million to $3.5 million for the third quarter of 2013," added Mr. Yu.
