  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "NATIONAL CINEMEDIA operates the largest digital in theatre network in North America that allows them to distribute advertisements and other content for our advertising, meetings and events businesses utilizing our proprietary digital content network. They have long term exhibitor services agreements with our founding members, Cinemark and Regal, the three largest motion picture exhibition companies in the U.S.and multi year agreements with several other theatre operators whom they refer to as network affiliates. The network affiliate agreements grant them exclusive rights, subject to limited exceptions, to sell advertising on their theatre screens. " (10/18/2017)
  • 2. Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "We raise our rating to Neutral (from UP) after the steep fall in the stock price, and highlight that the ~7% dividend yield provides support at current levels. We remain relatively cautious on the equity story given challenging structural headwinds and highlight that we now expect minimal growth in adj. EBITDA and cash available for distribution over the next 2-3 years. We lower our 2017/18 adj. EBITDA forecasts by 6-8%, and our EPS forecasts by 35%/39% to $0.37/$0.36 (previously $0.57/$0.58)." (3/15/2017)
  • 3. B. Riley analysts commented, "National CineMedia (NCMI) reported upside Q4 results in the face of an industry box office that declined compared to the year-ago period. However, even though we previewed the potential for strengthening trends into 2017 on the impressive film slate and high-demand franchise titles, initial 2017 guidance was disappointing and likely reflects early conservatism from a relatively new management team as well as recently-weakening trends in the scatter ad market. With a lower guidance base now in place, we actually believe there is more of a bias to the upside than risk to the downside as the year progresses ' which could include early campaigns to get ahead of another strong film slate in 2018. Regardless, we would not be surprised if the potentially meaningful sale of NCMI shares by AMC (Buy; $47.50 PT) as part of the DOJ approval for the Carmike acquisition remained an overhang for the time being ' even though we believe this is already priced into shares here. With that in mind, we recommend investors add to positions at currently depressed levels with the added bonus of being paid a 7.1% dividend yield to wait for that overhang to pass. We are lowering our 2017/2018 estimates along with the weaker guidance and maintaining our Buy rating with a lowered price target of $16.00 (down from $18.75) ' which still provides a potential return of 35% including the dividend yield."
