The Marcus Corporation Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2020 Results; Reaffirms Strong Balance Sheet and Liquidity

The Marcus Corporation (NYSE: MCS) today reported results for the third quarter of fiscal 2020 ended September 24, 2020 and reaffirmed its strong balance sheet and liquidity position.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

Maintaining a strong balance sheet has been a core philosophy throughout the 85-year history of The Marcus Corporation. As a result, the company believes it entered the global COVID-19 crisis from a position of strength. Despite theatres being closed during most of the third quarter of fiscal 2020 and the majority of hotels opened but operating at significantly reduced occupancies, the company’s net-debt-to-capitalization ratio (debt, net of cash) was 35% as of September 24, 2020.

On April 29, 2020, The Marcus Corporation entered into an amendment to its credit agreement, which included a new $90.8 million term loan. On September 22, 2020, the company extended the maturity date of the term loan and received an additional $78.6 million of net proceeds from the issuance of Convertible Senior Notes due 2025 (net of estimated fees and expenses related to the offering and the cost of capped call transactions that significantly reduce potential future dilution). As a result, the company has extended its debt maturities and enhanced its liquidity, which as of September 24, 2020 included $218.2 million in cash and revolving credit availability. Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, the company also received income tax refunds for prior years and has continued to seek additional state and federal governmental support where available in order to further reinforce its liquidity position.

“These are challenging times, yet we expect both of our businesses will begin returning to more normal conditions once the pandemic is under control. The actions we have taken and continue to take to further fortify our balance sheet and reinforce our liquidity provide us with the financial flexibility to sustain operations throughout fiscal 2021, even if our properties continue to generate significantly reduced revenues or have to reclose due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Gregory S. Marcus, president and chief executive officer of The Marcus Corporation. “It is also important to note our significant real estate ownership. In addition to our owned hotels, we own the underlying real estate for the majority of our theatres. We believe this remains a significant advantage for us relative to our peers as it keeps our monthly fixed lease payments low and provides significant underlying credit support for our balance sheet. We also own surplus real estate that may be monetized in future periods if opportunities arise.”

“While the COVID-19 pandemic is truly unprecedented, we believe we remain well-positioned to continue weathering this crisis,” said Marcus. “Over the years, our growth and success has been built on our founding principles of maintaining a strong financial position, owning and maintaining our real estate assets, focusing on quality and value, and managing for the long term. Those principles have served us well during times of growth and prosperity and continue to serve us during times of challenge. I remain grateful to our talented and committed team who continue to lead through these times with grace, grit and an unwavering commitment to each other, our guests and the communities we serve.”

Marcus Theatres®

Marcus Theatres initially reopened 80% of theatres as of August 28, 2020 in time for the release of the quarter’s highest grossing films: “Tenet,” “The New Mutants,” and “Unhinged.” Marcus Theatres surveyed its first loyalty members back and more than 96% indicated it was a comfortable and safe experience. Moviegoers continued to enjoy food and beverage experiences, as average concession revenues per person increased compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2019.

As the film product release schedule continued to change, Marcus Theatres temporarily closed 17 previously reopened theatres in early October due to the lack of new film releases. The company subsequently reopened four theatres with 66% of the total circuit open as of the date of this release, with the remainder ready to reopen as soon as market conditions allow.

“The major film studios have been cautiously awaiting the reopening of major movie markets before releasing new movies,” said Rolando Rodriguez, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Marcus Theatres. “We are encouraged by the recent news that theatres can reopen in portions of New York State, a significant market for the film industry and home to our Movie Tavern Syracuse Cinema. We are also encouraged by the increases in our theatre attendance during the past two weeks as we have been able to offer guests a greater number and variety of films. Our hope is that these are steps in the right direction as we head into the traditionally popular holiday season.”

As of the date of this release, several films are scheduled to be released during the remaining months of the year that have the potential to generate box office interest, including “The Croods 2,” “Free Guy,” “Death on the Nile,” “Wonder Woman 1984,” and “News of the World.”

“Thanks to our comprehensive safety protocols and advanced technology, moviegoers are already enjoying the big screen with confidence,” said Rodriguez. “As more films are released, we look forward to welcoming more guests back to seeing movies the way they are meant to be seen.”

Marcus® Hotels & Resorts

During the quarter, Marcus Hotels & Resorts reopened three additional company-owned hotels. Saint Kate - The Arts Hotel will reopen on November 5, 2020, at which point all eight of the company-owned hotels will have reopened. Nine out of 10 managed hotels and other properties have also reopened, along with the majority of the company’s restaurants and bars.

Current demand continues to be largely driven by the “drive-to-leisure” market. While group pace for fiscal 2021 is behind the comparable period last year, a large portion of that decline can be attributed to one-time event bookings in anticipation of Milwaukee hosting the Democratic National Convention in 2020. Many cancelled group bookings due to COVID-19 are rebooking for future dates, including the rescheduled Ryder Cup in September 2021. While banquet and catering revenue pace for fiscal 2021 is also behind the comparable period last year, wedding bookings are increasing.

“Our properties are uniquely positioned in their respective markets to continue capturing demand as travel recovers and groups begin to plan for future events,” said Michael Evans, president of Marcus Hotels & Resorts. “We are enjoying welcoming our guests back to our hotels, resorts and restaurants and remain committed as ever to making our guests’ ordinary days extraordinary.”

Four of the company’s owned or managed hotels were recently recognized by the coveted Condé Nast 2020 Readers Choice Awards. Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel in Milwaukee was voted the #6 Top Hotel in the Midwest, while The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee was voted the #8 Top Hotel in the Midwest. The Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva, Wis. was voted the #20 Top Resort in the Midwest and West, and The Garland was voted the #14 Top Hotel in Los Angeles.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA have been presented in this press release as supplemental measures of financial performance that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. The company defines Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation as net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that the company does not consider indicative of its core operating performance and the tax effect related to those items. The company defines Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation as Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation divided by diluted weighted average shares outstanding. The company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation before investment income or loss, interest expense, other expense, gain or loss on disposition of property, equipment and other assets, equity earnings or losses from unconsolidated joint ventures, net earnings or losses attributable to noncontrolling interests, income taxes and depreciation and amortization, adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that the company does not consider indicative of its core operating performance. Reconciliations of these measures to the equivalent measures under GAAP are set forth in the attached tables.

Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA are key measures used by management and the company’s board of directors to assess the company’s financial performance and enterprise value. The company believes that Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA are useful measures, as they eliminate certain expenses that are not indicative of the company’s core operating performance and facilitate a comparison of the company’s core operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period. The company also uses Adjusted EBITDA as a basis to determine certain annual cash bonuses and long-term incentive awards, to supplement GAAP measures of performance to evaluate the effectiveness of its business strategies, to make budgeting decisions, and to compare its performance against that of other peer companies using similar measures. Adjusted net earnings, Adjusted diluted earnings per share and Adjusted EBITDA are also used by analysts, investors and other interested parties as performance measures to evaluate industry competitors.

Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures of the company’s financial performance and should not be considered as alternatives to net earnings (loss) or diluted earnings (loss) per share as a measure of financial performance, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP and they should not be construed as an inference that the company’s future results will be unaffected by unusual or non-recurring items. Additionally, Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be measures of liquidity or free cash flow for management’s discretionary use. In addition, these non-GAAP measures exclude certain non-recurring and other charges. Each of these non-GAAP measures has its limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the company’s results as reported under GAAP. In evaluating Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future the company will incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the items eliminated in the adjustments made to determine Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA, such as acquisition expenses, preopening expenses, accelerated depreciation, impairment charges and other adjustments. The company’s presentation of Adjusted net earnings (loss) attributable to The Marcus Corporation, Adjusted net earnings (loss) per diluted common share attributable to The Marcus Corporation and Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed to imply that the company’s future results will be unaffected by any such adjustments. Definitions and calculations of Adjusted net earnings (loss), Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share and Adjusted EBITDA differ among companies in our industries, and therefore Adjusted net earnings (loss), Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share and Adjusted EBITDA disclosed by the company may not be comparable to the measures disclosed by other companies.
