Long Term Debt Activity

Senior Secured Credit Facility

On March 29, 2018, Cinemark USA, Inc., our wholly-owned subsidiary, amended its senior secured credit facility to extend the maturity of the term loan to March 29, 2025, reduce the rate at which the term loan bears interest by 0.25% and to reduce the amount of real property required to be mortgaged to secure the loans. Under the amended facility, quarterly principal payments of $1,649 are due on the term loan through December 31, 2024, with a final principal payment of $613,351 due on March 29, 2025. The Company incurred debt issue costs of approximately $4,962 in connection with the amendment, which are reflected as a reduction of long term debt on the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of September 30, 2018.  As a result of the amendment, the Company wrote-off $780 of unamortized debt issue costs and incurred approximately $704 in legal and other fees, both of which are reflected as loss on debt amendments and refinancing on the condensed consolidated statements of income for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

The Company estimates the fair value of its long-term debt using the market approach, which utilizes quoted market prices that fall under Level 2 of the U.S. GAAP fair value hierarchy as defined by ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement (“ASC Topic 820”).

The fair value of the Company’s long-term debt was $1,804,535 and $1,840,918 as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively.
