~ Announces Quarterly Cash Dividend ~
~ Provides Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2014 Outlook ~

CENTENNIAL, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- National CineMedia, Inc. (NASDAQ: NCMI) (the Company), the managing member and owner of 45.8% of National CineMedia, LLC (NCM LLC), the operator of the largest in-theatre digital media network in North America, today announced consolidated results for the fiscal third quarter ended September 25, 2014.

Total revenue for the third quarter of 2014 decreased 25.4% to $100.8 million from $135.1 million for the comparable quarter last year. Excluding revenue from the Fathom Events division that was sold in December 2013, revenue decreased 21.0% from $127.6 million for the third quarter of 2013. Adjusted OIBDA excluding Fathom Events decreased 31.0% to $52.2 million from $75.6 million for the third quarter of 2013. Net income for the third quarter of 2014 was $4.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share compared to net income of $13.7 million, or $0.24 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2013. Excluding $2.0 million in pre-tax costs associated with the proposed merger with Screenvision in the third quarter of 2014 and excluding the impact of the Fathom business on the third quarter of 2013 and 2014, net income for the third quarter of 2014 would have been $6.2 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, and net income for the third quarter of 2013 would have been $13.4 million, or $0.24 per diluted share.

For the nine months ended September 25, 2014, total revenue decreased 20.3% to $270.9 million from $340.1 million for the nine months ended September 26, 2013. Excluding revenue from the Fathom Events division that was sold in December 2013, revenue decreased 14.9% from $318.2 million for the nine months ended September 26, 2013. Adjusted OIBDA excluding Fathom Events decreased 24.8% to $126.8 million from $168.7 million for the comparable nine month period of 2013. Net income for the nine months ended September 25, 2014 was $5.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted share compared to net income of $22.2 million, or $0.40 per diluted share for the first nine months of 2013. Excluding $3.7 million in pre-tax costs associated with the proposed merger with Screenvision in 2014 and excluding the impact of the Fathom business on 2013 and 2014, net income for the first nine months of 2014 would have been $7.8 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, and net income for the first nine months of 2013 would have been $21.3 million, or $0.38 per diluted share.

The Company announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized the Company's regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.22 per share of common stock. The dividend will be paid on December 5, 2014, to stockholders of record on November 20, 2014. The Company intends to pay a regular quarterly dividend for the foreseeable future at the discretion of the Board of Directors dependent on available cash, anticipated cash needs, overall financial condition, future prospects for earnings and cash flows as well as other relevant factors.

Commenting on the Company's recent operating results Chairman and CEO Kurt Hall said, "After weathering a tough Q2 and Q3 for our national advertising business as marketers sorted-out where to invest their video advertising budgets, our national business has made a meaningful recovery as Q4 2014 national advertising revenue is projected to increase approximately 20% versus Q4 2013. Most of this Q4 national revenue increase relates to commitments made during our recent participation in the TV upfront selling process where our overall upfront commitments more than doubled from last year. This turnaround reflects an increased focus by media planners on video platforms with higher quality event programming that delivers ubiquitous national coverage and enough impressions to positively impact their marketing campaigns. While this year's upfront was a good start, our proposed merger with Screenvision will further enhance our ability to deliver what media planners want to buy."

Commenting on the previously announced lawsuit by the Department of Justice ("DOJ") seeking to block the Company's proposed merger with Screenvision, Mr. Hall concluded, "I am obviously very disappointed that the DOJ did not see the benefits of the new combined company to our advertising clients and their agencies and our exhibitor partners. We look forward to demonstrating those benefits. Combining NCM and Screenvision will enable us to offer advertisers a better product with the broader reach, ubiquitous geographic coverage, more advertising impressions, enhanced targeting capability, and lower costs that advertising clients and their agencies seek. The combined company will provide long term additional advertising revenue to our theater circuit partners as we will be more competitive in the advertising marketplace."

Revenue excluding Fathom Events, Adjusted OIBDA and Adjusted OIBDA excluding Fathom Events are non-GAAP measures. See the tables at the end of this release for the reconciliations to the closest GAAP basis measurements.

OIBDA, Adjusted OIBDA and Adjusted OIBDA Margin

Operating Income Before Depreciation and Amortization ("OIBDA"), Adjusted OIBDA and Adjusted OIBDA margin are not financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States. OIBDA represents consolidated net income plus income tax expense, interest and other costs and depreciation and amortization expense. Adjusted OIBDA excludes from OIBDA non-cash share based compensation costs and merger-related administrative costs. Adjusted OIBDA margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted OIBDA by total revenue. These non-GAAP financial measures are used by management to evaluate operating performance, to forecast future results and as a basis for compensation. The Company believes these are important supplemental measures of operating performance because they eliminate items that have less bearing on its operating performance and so highlight trends in its core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures. The Company believes the presentation of these measures is relevant and useful for investors because it enables them to view performance in a manner similar to the method used by the Company's management, helps improve their ability to understand the Company's operating performance and makes it easier to compare the Company's results with other companies that may have different depreciation and amortization policies, non-cash share based compensation programs, levels of mergers and acquisitions, interest rates or debt levels or income tax rates. A limitation of these measures, however, is that they exclude depreciation and amortization, which represent a proxy for the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues in the Company's business. In addition, Adjusted OIBDA has the limitation of not reflecting the effect of the Company's share based payment costs or costs associated with the proposed Screenvision merger. OIBDA or Adjusted OIBDA should not be regarded as an alternative to operating income, net income or as indicators of operating performance, nor should they be considered in isolation of, or as substitutes for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that consolidated net income is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to OIBDA. Because not all companies use identical calculations, these non-GAAP presentations may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies, or calculations in the Company's debt agreement.

The following tables reconcile consolidated net income to OIBDA and Adjusted OIBDA for the periods presented (dollars in millions):

Revenue and Adjusted OIBDA excluding Fathom Events

Revenue excluding Fathom Events and Adjusted OIBDA excluding Fathom Events are not financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States. Revenue excluding Fathom Events represents total revenue less revenue of our Fathom Events operating segment which was sold on December 26, 2013. Adjusted OIBDA excluding Fathom Events represents Adjusted OIBDA (defined above) less operating income of our Fathom Events operating segment. These non-GAAP financial measures are used to provide readers a comparison of our third quarter and full year 2014 results and outlook for the third quarter and full year 2014 to our results in the comparable period of 2013 without the Fathom Events operating segment included. The Company believes these are important supplemental measures because they eliminate a portion of our business that was disposed of to highlight trends in its ongoing business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures. Revenue excluding Fathom Events and Adjusted OIBDA excluding Fathom Events should not be regarded as an alternative to revenue, operating income, net income or as indicators of operating performance, nor should they be considered in isolation of, or as substitutes for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that revenue and consolidated net income are the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. Because not all companies use identical calculations, these non-GAAP presentations may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Net Income and Earnings per Share Excluding Merger-Related Administrative Costs and Fathom Events

Net income and earnings per share excluding merger-related administrative costs and Fathom Events are not financial measures calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States. Net income and earnings per share excluding merger-related administrative costs and Fathom Events are calculated using reported net income and earnings per share and the merger-related administrative costs and the results of the Fathom Events operating segment shown in the below table. These non-GAAP financial measures are used by management as an additional tool to evaluate operating performance. The Company believes these are important supplemental measures of operating performance because they eliminate items that have less bearing on its operating performance and so highlight trends in its core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures. The Company believes the presentation of these measures is relevant and useful for investors because it enables them to view performance in a manner similar to a method used by the Company's management and helps improve their ability to understand the Company's operating performance. Net income excluding merger-related administrative costs and Fathom Events should not be regarded as an alternative to net income and should not be regarded as an alternative to earnings per share or as indicators of operating performance, nor should they be considered in isolation of, or as substitutes for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
