PLANO, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Cinemark Holdings, Inc., a leading motion picture exhibitor, today announced the pricing of its initial public offering of 28,000,000 shares of common stock at a price of $19.00 per share. Cinemark Holdings, Inc. is offering 13,888,889 shares of its common stock in this initial public offering, and selling stockholders are offering an additional 14,111,111 shares. The selling stockholders have also granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an aggregate of 2,800,000 additional shares of common stock if the underwriters sell more than 28,000,000 shares in the offering. Cinemark Holdings, Inc. will not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares by the selling stockholders.
The shares are scheduled to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange on April 24, 2007 under the ticker "CNK."
Cinemark Holdings, Inc. intends to use the net proceeds that it receives from the initial public offering to repurchase a portion of its outstanding 9 3/4% senior discount notes or repay debt outstanding under its new senior secured credit facility. The Company's 9 3/4% senior discount notes are not currently subject to repurchase at its option. Accordingly, if Cinemark Holdings, Inc. is unable to repurchase the 9 3/4% senior discount notes at prices that it deems acceptable, the net proceeds that it receives from this offering will be used to repay term loan debt outstanding under its new senior secured credit facility.
The initial public offering is being led by Lehman Brothers, Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch & Co. and Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated, acting as joint book-running managers.
