  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "IMAX is benefiting from from robust box-office revenues. Moreover, expanding international footprint is a key growth catalyst. The company has inked multiple deals of late to expand its global presence. However, increasing expenses on its new business is an overhang on margins. Fluctuation in box office collections is a significant headwind. Moreover, rising competition from other formats poses concern. Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (6/11/2018)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We feel the Hong Kong and PSA issues have largely run their course and management is being more selective in its capital investments. Further, we are encouraged by new opportunities in the core business line such as greater flexibility in screen usage (now primarily international but hopefully extending to domestic markets), reduced screening periods for individual films within a larger number of titles (with very few running more than a couple of weeks) and experimentation with reseating options. Attention to the cost structure is also important to profitability. These elements are contributing to our renewed confidence in this story." (3/20/2018)
