Acquisition of Rave Theatres
On May 29, 2013, the Company acquired 32 theatres with 483 screens from Rave Real Property Holdco, LLC and certain of its subsidiaries, Rave Cinemas, LLC and RC Processing, LLC (collectively “Rave”) in an asset purchase for approximately $236,875 in cash plus the assumption of certain liabilities (the “Rave Acquisition”). The acquisition resulted in an expansion of the Company’s domestic theatre base into one new state and seven new markets. The transaction was subject to antitrust approval by the Department of Justice or Federal Trade Commission. The Department of Justice required the Company to agree to divest of three of the newly-acquired theatres, which occurred during August 2013 (see discussion below). The Company incurred approximately $500 in transaction costs, which are reflected in general and administrative expenses on the consolidated statement of income for the year ended December 31, 2013.
