The Company and Basis of Presentation

Cinemark Holdings, Inc. is a holding company and its wholly-owned subsidiary is Cinemark USA, Inc. Holdings consolidates CUSA for financial statement purposes. CUSA comprises a majority of the balance of Holdings’ assets, liabilities and operating cash flows. In addition, CUSA’s revenue comprises 100% and its operating expenses comprise nearly 100% of Holdings’ revenue and operating expenses, respectively. These Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include disclosures for Holdings and CUSA and their respective consolidated subsidiaries. Where it is important to distinguish between the entities, this report either refers specifically to Holdings or CUSA. Otherwise, all references to “we,” “our,” “us,” “the Company” or "Cinemark" relate to Cinemark Holdings, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries and all references to CUSA relate to CUSA and its consolidated subsidiaries.

The Company and its subsidiaries operate in the motion picture exhibition industry, with theatres in the United States (“U.S.”), Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala, Bolivia, Curacao and Paraguay.

The accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets of Holdings and CUSA as of December 31, 2021, each of which were derived from audited financial statements, and the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Holdings and CUSA, respectively, has been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete consolidated financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and the accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Majority-owned subsidiaries over which the Company has control are consolidated while those investments in entities of which Holdings or CUSA, as applicable, owns between 20% and 50% and does not control are accounted for under the equity method. Investments in entities of which Holdings or CUSA, as applicable, owns less than 20% are generally accounted for under the cost method, unless Holdings or CUSA, as applicable, is deemed to have the ability to exercise significant influence over the entities, in which case Holdings or CUSA, as applicable, would account for its investment under the equity method. The results of these subsidiaries and entities are included in the condensed consolidated financial statements effective with their formation or from their dates of acquisition. Intercompany balances and transactions are eliminated in consolidation.

These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited annual consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2021, included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K filed February 25, 2022 by Holdings and the Annual Report on Form 10-K filed March 9, 2022 by CUSA, as applicable, each under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved for the full year.

Amounts included in the condensed consolidated financial statements of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are rounded in millions with the exception of per share data. The amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements, and the notes thereto, of the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 filed by Holdings on February 25, 2022 and by CUSA on March 9, 2022 are rounded in thousands.
