7 01 Letter to the Shareholders Dear Shareholder, In 2007 Kinepolis was able to increase revenue by 0.5%, despite a 3.4% fall in admissions. Revenue was boosted by digitalization and other business activities like food, beverages, retail, business-to-business and real estate. Kinepolis Group ended 2007 with net profit of 14.7 m, operating profit of 25.1 m, EBITDA of 49.6 m and revenue of m. Net income was up 1% on 2006 ( 14.6 m). Revenue In 2007 Kinepolis Group generated total revenue of m, 0.5% more than the year before. The gross box office (income from ticket sales) was down 3%, reflecting lower admissions, partially offset by the higher average ticket price thanks to the success of digital film. (1) EBITDA is not a recognized IFRS term. Kinepolis has defined the concept by adding back charges for depreciation, amortization, impairments and provisions to the operating profit, and subtracting any reversals or uses of the same items. Ticket sales represented a lower portion of total revenue (59%) than in 2006 (61%), with a higher portion coming from food, beverage & retail, and from commercial lettings. Food, beverage & retail rose by 5%, thanks to higher consumption per-visitor and increased sales prices. Business-to-business activities in the cinema environment remained a source of growth, with revenue from events, screen advertising etc. up 5%. Revenue from Kinepolis s film distribution division (KFD) rose, thanks to the success of Flemish films (Man zkt Vrouw, Ben X, Vermist) and of The Golden Compass. Real estate income surged by 25%, the main factor here being the letting of the Polish Cinema City Kinepolis facility to the ITIT cinema group from 19 January 2007 onwards. 53% of global revenue was generated in Belgium, the Group s home country, 25% in France, 20% in Spain, and 2% in Poland and Switzerland. Real estate development Kinepolis s land and buildings are a vital business asset. The fact of owning a good 90% of its real estate sets Kinepolis apart from most other cinema groups, giving it the independence, freedom and flexibility to come up with a number of innovative 01 LETTER TO THE SHAREHOLDERs kinepolis group 2007

8 projects and concepts, both inside and outside its own walls. The real estate division is being further extended and given managerial independence in In this context an additional real estate manager was recently appointed, and the board of directors was strengthened by a further director from the real estate sector. Kinepolis Group and digital cinema Kinepolis is continuing to install digital equipment in every country in which it operates, to allow the ever growing number of digital films to be presented on Kinepolis screens. Digitalization of the cinema medium is providing better sound and image quality and offering a whole range of new entertainment possibilities and business-to-business applications. Unveiling of the new open foyer Kinepolis model 3D Digital Cinema The latest Kinepolis complexes (Kinepolis Ostend and Kinepolis Bruges) incorporate a highly innovative design concept. Setting the tone are the open foyer with extensive shopping opportunities, seat reservation and ticket control facilities (the latter functioning automatically using sensors built into the seats), and the extensive digitalization of film, data and communication channels. This home-grown total concept was first implemented in December 2007, with Kinepolis Kortrijk (10 screens) becoming, on its tenth birthday, the first of the Kinepolis complexes to be converted into a new generation Kinepolis. The very latest application of digital cinema is 3D Digital Cinema (Kinepolis, Dolby Laboratories, Barco). Kinepolis has 19 3D-installations at its various international locations. In November 2007, Kinepolis presented its first 3D film Beowulf, followed in the early part of 2008 by the 3D-film Fly me to the Moon and the concert film U2 3D. Prospects Whereas the 2007 film year had one clear blockbuster season running from early May to the end of August, the expected success titles for 2008 are much better distributed over the year. In most Kinepolis complexes the seats are now numbered, allowing film fans to reserve tickets and seats in advance. In February 2008 the downtown cinema Forvm Nîmes (4 screens) also reopened after many months, totally renovated and with a seat reservation system. I am Legend continued its international year-end success into the new year. Asterix at the Olympic Games and Bienvenue chez les Ch tis got off to an overwhelming start in France and French-speaking Belgium and Aanrijding in Moskou scored well in Flanders. Thus the admission figures for January and February were influenced positively.

9 Still to come are highly promising film titles like BC, Indiana Jones 4, Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, The Mummy 3, the 22nd Bond film Quantum of Solace, Harry Potter and the Halfblood Prince and Escape from Madagascar. A word of thanks On behalf of the Board of Directors we would like to thank our employees for their hard work and devotion to Kinepolis Group is also promising to be a strong year for local films like Los and Suske en Wiske (Flanders), Disco (France) and Mortadelo & Filemon 2 and Los Crimenes de Oxford (Spain). Dividend of 0.65 per share The Board of Directors will be proposing the General Meeting of 16 May 2008 that the company declare a gross dividend of 0.65 per share in respect of 2007 (2006: 0.64 per share). The payout ratio of 30% has now been maintained for four years in a row. Kinepolis is determined to achieve its strategic goal of sustainable and profitable growth. For successfully meeting the challenges it faces at various levels, Kinepolis Group knows that it can count on the efforts and commitment of its employees and their understanding of the vital importance of creating value for both shareholders and cinema-goers. An essential factor here is digitalization, which is offering our visitors new opportunities. Customer-directed thinking, real estate development and a continuous process of innovation are the Kinepolis Group s greatest assets in maintaining its lead over the competition. Together with the Board of Directors we express our total confidence in the future. 01 Letter to shareholders Joost Bert Joint CEO Eddy Duquenne Joint CEO Baron Hugo Vandamme Chairman of the Board of Directors kinepolis group 2007

11 02 Company Profile VISION AND MISSION Kinepolis Group stands for a world in which people enjoy the entertainment they choose for themselves when, where and with whom and decide themselves how they wish to experience their emotional thrills. Kinepolis Group intends to strengthen its leadership positions where it is already a strong player, and to become a leader on the other markets on which it is present. It also wants its audiences to enjoy top quality leisure activities and business experiences. To achieve this, it is meeting the changing needs of its audiences in a variety of ways. Kinepolis is gradually reshaping its cinemas into moving film environments where customers become the directors of their own emotions. PROFILE Since it was founded in 1997 and its subsequent SPO in 1998, Kinepolis has grown into the market leader in Belgium and a trendsetting player on the European market. With 23 cinema complexes in Belgium, France, Spain, Poland and Switzerland, welcoming 22 million visitors in 2007, Kinepolis is one of the leading cinema operators in Europe and employs almost people. The Kinepolis concept is driven by a concern for innovation and customer focus. Kinepolis Group is one of a select group of cinemas in the world that are able to offer digital cinema, using the revolutionary DLP technology. Kinepolis now has an extensive platform of digital Kinepolis Ostend (B) 02 COMPANY PROFILE kinepolis group 2007

Alongside Hollywood productions, film lovers can also experience alternative content in digital format, such as prestige events, TV serials, gaming, live concerts and sports competitions With a number of pioneering innovations each time, every new cinema complex is an additional step into the future. The most striking of these are the accessibility of the new foyers, the seat reservation system, the ticket pricing and control system, and the extensive digitalization of film, information and communication channels. 3 Kinepolis in Europe COUNTRY COMPLEXES SCREENS EMPLOYEES* Belgium France Spain Poland Switzerland Total (*) number of staff contracts on 31/12/07 10

15 03 Core Activities 2007 will go down as a moderately good year. Despite a number of exceptional factors which worked at the cost of the number of visitors to Kinepolis cinema and cinemas in general, all core activities produced proper results. In 2007 Kinepolis was again able to count on the unbridled commitment and unequalled professionalism of its employees. TICKET SALES In 2007 Kinepolis Group welcomed 22.0 m visitors to its cinema complexes, 3.4% fewer than the year before (22.8 m visitors). The main reasons are the very strong 2006 admissions figures, a warm spring and an unexciting international film line-up. The recently opened Kinepolis complexes in Bruges (2006), Nancy and Granada (2004) all achieved significant growth in The newly opened Kinepolis Ostend (July 2007) got off to a cautious start. September and April proved the weakest months of the year for Kinepolis Group, and July the absolute top month. 03 Core activities Top films in 2007 were Pirates of the Caribbean: At World s End, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Ratatouille, Shrek the Third, Spider-man 3 and The Simpsons Movie. kinepolis group

16 Ben X and Vermist were notable local film successes in Flemish-speaking Belgium. The Departed, La Môme, Elizabeth and Eastern Promises were the main hits in the Cinémanie segment (screening of authors films). Taxi 4 and La Môme proved popular with audiences in the French-speaking part of the country. French films drew much applause in 2007, thanks in part to the film topper Taxi 4. The French top 10 also included La Môme and Arthur et les Minimoys, but Ensemble c est tout and Le cœur des hommes also did very well. Lumière sur, the French label awarded to better films (comparable with Cinémanie in Belgium and Spain), meant that many more such films were screened such as We own the night, Le Scaphandre et le Papillon, Dialogue avec mon jardinière, La vérité ou presque and Ennemi intime. In Spain the Spanish thrillers El Orfanato and Rec became real blockbusters. 14

17 Still to come are highly promising film titles like BC, Indiana Jones 4, Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, The Mummy 3, the 22nd Bond film Quantum of Solace, Harry Potter and the Halfblood Prince and Escape from Madagascar is also promising to be a strong year for local films like Los, Samson en Gert and Suske en Wiske (Flanders), Disco (France) and Mortadelo & Filemon 2 and Los Crimenes de Oxford (Spain). Whereas the 2007 film year had one clear blockbuster season running from early May to the end of August, the expected success titles for 2008 are much better distributed over the year. I am Legend continued its international year-end success into the new year. Asterix at the Olympic Games and Bienvenue chez les Ch tis got off to an overwhelming start in France and French-speaking Belgium, and Aanrijding in Moscou scored well in Flanders. In this way admissions for January and February are already very positive. 03 Core activities kinepolis group

18 FOOD, BEVERAGE & retail F&B revenues and margins were again outstanding in 2007, thanks to an extended F&B range and innovative sales concepts. Kinepolis Ostend (B) The most notable trend in 2007 was the further progression in sales of healthy food and by both film-related and non-film-related merchandising in a number of Kinepolis complexes. Alongside the traditional sweet popcorn, Kinepolis Belgium also introduced salt popcorn. Kinepolis Ostend (B) Following the model of Kinepolis Bruges, Kinepolis Nancy, Kinepolis Lomme and Kinepolis Madrid, Kinepolis Ostend and Kortrijk also introduced a new sales concept. Self service outlets replace the traditional fast lanes, and the average F&B offering has been extended. Alongside the traditional favourites like coke, chips and popcorn, Kinepolis Ostend and Kortrijk are also offering a choice of healthy food and drink, like fruit juices, water, drinking yoghurt, rolls and sandwiches and fruit, in line with the current trend. Concern for customer comfort means that visitors no longer have to first go and eat elsewhere, but can enjoy a snack in a friendly atmosphere in the complex itself. 16

19 MEDIA & EVENTS In 2007 the Kinepolis complexes again organized a number of successful B-to-B and B-to-C events, which generated substantial Media & Events revenue. Successful B-to-B events are putting Kinepolis complexes more firmly on the map as congress and media centres. Digitalization is giving Kinepolis a unique positioning in the B-to-B landscape. Excellent customer service and state-of-the-art installations have made Kinepolis a trusted partner for events organizers. Prestigious names like Microsoft, Telefónica and Renault again opted for Kinepolis as the venue for launching their latest products. In January 2007 the operation of Kinepolis Poznan was transferred to ITIT. Kinepolis is nonetheless continuing the B-to-B activities. Under the new name Cinema City Kinepolis, the cinema is being strongly promoted as a B-to-B location with forceful prospecting and intensive media campaigns. Kinepolis Ostend (B) In 2007 Kinepolis organized various events for specific target groups. It continued the Sunday programme for the kids and family segment ( Magic Sundays, Matinées Magiques ) and the successful programme. Fully sold out theatres showed the themovies concept to be right on the ball. We are now working in Belgium on a concept. popular themes and events are not forgotten either, with special initiatives around Halloween, St Valentine s Day and Christmas. In 2007 the Kinepolis website was redesigned. The site s popularity with both customers and businesses is shown among other things by the success of bannering and advertising on the site. 03 Core activities kinepolis group

20 FILM DISTRIBUTION KFD confirms its success Kinepolis Film Distribution (KFD) continued its close collaboration with the Dutch company RCV was another good year, in which KFD strengthened its reputation as an independent distributor and again treated Belgian cinema-goers to a wide choice of films, including Belgian success stories. Toppers included Man Zkt Vrouw, Ben X, Vermist and the Studio 100 productions Plop en de Pinguïn and K3 en de Kattenprins. In 2007 Flemish films seduced a record number of visitors to the cinema, with five Flemish film productions among the top twenty cinema hits for Another media channel that is advancing more and more is the network of digital screens in Kinepolis foyers. Numerous international film and TV stars again dropped in at Kinepolis in 2007, thereby strengthening its image as a film temple par excellence. Film distribution in 2007 KFD, which specializes in distributing Flemish films, has become a permanent and valued part of the Belgian film landscape. Kinepolis has continued to support Flemish films by bringing onto the big screen most of the TV films Exclusive film promotions, foyer events and special film decors made sure that there was always something for Kinepolis customers to experience. On-screen advertising also did well, with a number of media campaigns placing Kinepolis more than ever top-of-mind with Belgian, French and Spanish cinema-goers. 18

Huge Belgian audiences enjoyed Hairspray, the revival of the musical, and the epic fairy tale The Golden Compass, the first part of a trilogy, with actors including Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig. Looking forward to 2008 In 2008 KFD and RCV will together be tempting us once again with a very attractive film line-up. At international film markets they have already been able to sign distribution contracts for The Eye (Jessica Alba), Bangkok Dangerous (Nicolas Cage) and Incendiary (Ewan McGregor). In addition, a whole row of Flemish products will again be providing lots of film pleasure, from the romantic comedy Aanrijding in Moskou with Barbara Sarafian, the drama Happy Together by Geoffrey Enthoven, starring Ben Van Ostade, Kürt Rogiers 03 Core activities kinepolis group

22 REAL ESTATE In 2007 Real Estate continued work on existing or new cinema projects, as well as initiating a number of socalled stand-alone projects was also a busy year for the Real Estate letting activities. Kinepolis is growing At the end of 2007 Kinepolis had 23 complexes, with 317 screens and seats. The total surface area being operated is around 1 million m², with m² of lettable commercial space. Kinepolis Ostend (B) This impressive real estate portfolio is in the good hands of the Real Estate division, which is responsible within Kinepolis for managing and developing a number of existing and new, special projects and a number of stand-alone projects. Activities in 2007 Ostend In July 2007 Kinepolis opened a new cinema complex in Ostend with 8 screens, seats and 320 parking spaces on a 1.7 hectare site.

23 Stand-alone developments In 2007 Real Estate continued work on a number of so-called stand-alone projects, that is real estate developments that are separate from cinema projects, but complementary to them. In Ghent a building licence has been obtained for an apartment project. In Hasselt a leisure centre is shortly to be developed. At Kinepolis Bruges a B-to-B reception room is being completed to meet demand for events. Other sites in Belgium and France have also been examined with a view to similar developments. Concessions In 2007 a dance school and a TV studio moved into the Kinepolis Poznan premises, and various catering businesses into the Belgian and French Kinepolis complexes. The karting in Poznan has proved a great success, as has the Lazer Game in Mulhouse. In this way the Poznan, Nîmes, Mulhouse and Braine complexes were able to offer a wider range of attractions and welcome greater numbers of visitors. Looking forward to 2008 In 2008 Real Estate is examining whether possibilities exist to build more new cinemas in Belgium, France and Spain. It is also completing a number of current Kinepolis projects, including Longdoz/Liège, Ghent and Hasselt.
