The Company also reported a first quarter global per screen average of $202,900.

"This is a very exciting time for IMAX," said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. "Our continued progress in expanding our theatre network globally, along with our strong film performance during the first quarter, resulted in robust financial results with almost 30% revenue growth and over 50% adjusted earnings growth compared to the same period last year.  With record results from Furious 7 in April and a great start to the Avenger's sequel internationally, the momentum has continued into the second quarter."  

Network Growth Update

The total IMAX® theatre network consisted of 943 systems as of March 31, 2015, of which 820 were in commercial multiplexes. There were 403 theatres in backlog as of March 31, 2015, compared to 431 in backlog as of March 31, 2014.  In the first quarter of 2015, the Company signed contracts for 21 theatres, of which 20 were for new locations and 1 was for an upgrade.  In the quarter, the Company also installed 13 theatres, of which 11 were for new theatre locations and 2 were upgrades.  For a breakdown of theatre system signings, installations, network and backlog by type, please see the end of this press release.

"The year has gotten off to a very positive start with film performance, network expansion, technology advancements and openings in new markets, all showing promise," continued Gelfond. "With the successful launch of our laser system to rave reviews, our recent long-term movie deals with Disney and Warner Brothers, our installation pace and new signings and strong box office results so far this year – we continue to solidify our leading position in the entertainment ecosystem and set the stage for future long-term growth."

OTHER INFORMATION
 (in thousands of U.S. dollars)

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

In this release, the Company presents adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders and adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders per diluted share as supplemental measures of performance of the Company, which are not recognized under U.S. GAAP. The Company presents adjusted net income and adjusted net income per diluted share because it believes that they are important supplemental measures of its comparable controllable operating performance and it wants to ensure that its investors fully understand the impact of its stock-based compensation (net of any related tax impact) on net income. In addition, the Company presents adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders and adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders per diluted share because it believes that they are important supplemental measures of its comparable financial results and could potentially distort the analysis of trends in business performance and it wants to ensure that its investors fully understand the impact of net income attributable to non-controlling interests and its stock-based compensation (net of any related tax impact) in determining net income attributable to common shareholders. Management uses these measures to review operating performance on a comparable basis from period to period. However, these non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled amounts reported by other companies. Adjusted net income, adjusted net income per diluted share, adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders and adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders per diluted share should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, net income and net income attributable to common shareholders and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The Credit Facility provides that the Company will be required at all times to satisfy a Minimum Liquidity Test (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of at least $50 million. The Company will also be required to maintain minimum EBITDA (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of $90.0 million until December 30, 2015, which requirement increases to $100.0 million on December 31, 2015. The Company must also maintain a Maximum Total Leverage Ratio (as defined in the Credit Agreement) of 2.5:1.0 until December 30, 2015, which requirement decreases to (i) 2.25:1.0 on December 31, 2015; (ii) 2.0:1.0 on December 31, 2016; and (iii) 1.75:1.0 on December 31, 2017. The ratio of total debt to EBITDA was 0.14:1 as at March 31, 2015, where Total Debt (as defined in the Credit Agreement) is the sum of all obligations evidenced by notes, bonds, debentures or similar instruments and was $16.1 million. EBITDA is calculated as follows:

Free Cash Flow:
Free cash flow is defined as cash provided by operating activities minus cash used in investing activities (from the consolidated statements of cash flows). Cash provided by operating activities consist of net income, plus depreciation and amortization, plus the change in deferred income taxes, plus other non-cash items, plus changes in working capital, less investment in film assets, plus other changes in operating assets and liabilities. Cash used in investing activities includes capital expenditures, acquisitions and other cash used in investing activities. Management views free cash flow, a non-GAAP measure, as a measure of the Company's after-tax cash flow available to reduce debt, add to cash balances, and fund other financing activities. A reconciliation of cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow is presented in the table below:
