National Cinemedia Hints That Q1 Profits Will Please Investors

The movie theater ad sales company gave the head nod this morning as it disclosed its plan to take advantage of today’s low interest rates by repricing its debt. The release adds that the company “is comfortable with the upper end” of its cash flow projections. Stifel analyst Benjamin Mogil seized the opportunity this morning to raise his Q1 revenue estimate 4% to $78M and cash flow projection 12% to $28M. Company execs did their best last week at the CinemaCon confab in Las Vegas to reassure the Street that trends look promising for theater ads. The company “continues to build on its momentum from last year’s upfront presentation and benefits from being a part of the conversation as advertisers and ad agencies plan their media budgets for the upcoming year,” says Barclays’ Anthony DiClemente. “We also think the company is well-positioned to continue to gain market share as contracts come up.”
