RealD Inc. Reports Financial Results for Third Quarter of Fiscal 2013 Business Wire LOS ANGELES -- February 6, 2013 RealD Inc. (NYSE: RLD), a leading global licensor of 3D technologies, today announced financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2013 ended December 31, 2012. “2D films generated an outsized share of global box office receipts during our third fiscal quarter, which limited our financial results for the quarter,” said Michael V. Lewis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of RealD. “Importantly, our continuing focus on growth initiatives in international markets recently led to two major exhibitor contracts in Russia, one of the highest grossing countries for 3D box office receipts. We announced today that Russian exhibitors Karo Film and Kinomax will equip up to a combined 300 RealD systems across their circuits, providing the industry’s brightest 3D presentation to their moviegoing customers. “Our repurchase of 2.3 million shares of common stock during the quarter and the recent expansion of our stock repurchase program underscore our confidence in RealD’s future growth opportunities,” Lewis added. Third Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Highlights Financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 benefited from RealD’s previously announced change in quarterly reporting periods, which added 10 extra days to the quarter ended December 31, 2012 when compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2012 ended December 23, 2011. *Total revenue was $46.9 million, comprised of license revenue of $30.3 million and product and other revenue of $16.6 million. For the third quarter of fiscal 2012, total revenue was $49.0 million, comprised of license revenue of $28.5 million and product and other revenue of $20.6 million. *GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders was $4.2 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders of $2.8 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The third quarter of fiscal 2012 included a tax benefit of $2.2 million. *Adjusted EBITDA was $12.5 million, compared to $16.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. *Adjusted EBITDA is defined within the section of this press release entitled “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” which includes a reconciliation to its most comparable GAAP measure, net income (loss). Nine-Month Fiscal 2013 Financial Highlights *Total revenue was $170.1 million, comprised of license revenue of $106.5 million and product and other revenue of $63.6 million. For the nine months ended December 23, 2011, total revenue was $196.6 million, comprised of license revenue of $116.1 million and product and other revenue of $80.4 million. *GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders was $5.4 million, or $0.10 per share, compared to GAAP net income of $31.3 million, or $0.55 per diluted share, for the nine months ended December 23, 2011. *Adjusted EBITDA was $49.4 million, compared to $86.6 million for the nine months ended December 23, 2011. Cash Flows, Stock Repurchases and Balance Sheet Highlights *For the nine months ended December 31, 2012, cash flows from operating activities were $63.0 million and total capital expenditures were $24.4 million, resulting in free cash flow of $38.5 million. *Free cash flow is defined within the section of this press release entitled “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” which includes a reconciliation to its most comparable GAAP measure, net cash provided by operating activities. *During the quarter, the Company repurchased approximately 2,262,000 shares of common stock for $21.5 million, representing an average cost of $9.52 per share. *Since the inception of the stock repurchase program in April 2012 through December 31, 2012, the Company has repurchased approximately 4,822,000 shares of common stock. As of December 31, 2012, $27.2 million remained available under the $75 million stock repurchase authorization. *Cash and cash equivalents were $27.7 million and total debt was $35.0 million as of December 31, 2012. The increase of $22.5 million in total debt from September 21, 2012 primarily funded stock repurchases during the quarter. Key Metrics *Estimated box office generated on RealD-enabled screens^(1) for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $643 million ($299 million domestic, $344 million international). In the third quarter of fiscal 2012, estimated box office generated on RealD-enabled screens was $532 million ($256 million domestic, $276 million international). *The percentage of RealD box office generated from animation and family genre films (which have lower average ticket prices) decreased compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2012, when animation and family films dominated the holiday film slate. *Nine 3D films were released in the third quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to eight 3D films in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. *International markets generated 59% of license revenue and 34% of product and other revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. *As of December 31, 2012, the Company had deployed approximately 22,200 RealD-enabled screens, an increase of 13% from approximately 19,700 screens as of December 23, 2011, and an increase of 700 screens (300 domestic, 400 international), or 3%, from approximately 21,500 screens as of September 21, 2012. *As of December 31, 2012, the Company had approximately 12,600 domestic screens at approximately 2,800 domestic theater locations and approximately 9,600 international screens at approximately 2,700 international theater locations. Estimated domestic box office on RealD-enabled screens represents the estimated 3D box office generated on RealD-enabled domestic screens. Estimated international box office on RealD-enabled international screens is the estimated 3D box office generated on RealD-enabled (1) international screens. RealD’s estimates of box office on RealD-enabled screens rely on box office tracking data. International box office reflects RealD’s estimates of international box office generated on RealD-enabled screens in 20 foreign countries where box office tracking is available. RealD estimates these countries represent approximately 85% of RealD’s international license revenues. Planned Changes to Definition of Adjusted EBITDA, a Non-GAAP Measure Beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 that ends on June 30, 2013, RealD intends to modify its definition of Adjusted EBITDA for financial reporting purposes to align with the Adjusted EBITDA definition under the expanded credit facility entered into on April 19, 2012. The Adjusted EBITDA definition under RealD’s credit facility does not add back sales and use tax and property tax as part of the calculation. Beginning in fiscal 2014, RealD will no longer add back sales and use tax and property tax to calculate Adjusted EBITDA for financial reporting purposes. 3D Theatrical Release Schedule for Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2013 and First Three Quarters of Fiscal 2014 (As of February 6, 2013 – Domestic) Fiscal Q4 2013 Film Domestic Release Date (ending 3/31/13) The Texas Chainsaw 1/4/2013 Massacre 3D Hansel and Gretel: Witch 1/25/2013 Hunters Escape from Planet Earth 2/14/2013 Jack the Giant Slayer 3/1/2013 Oz: The Great and 3/8/2013 Powerful The Croods 3/22/2013 GI Joe: Retaliation 3/28/2013 Fiscal Q1 2014 Film Domestic Release Date (ending 6/30/13) Jurassic Park 4/5/2013 (re-release) Iron Man 3 5/3/2013 The Great Gatsby 5/10/2013 Star Trek into Darkness 5/17/2013 EPIC 5/24/2013 Man of Steel 6/14/2013 World War Z 6/21/2013 Monsters University 6/21/2013 Fiscal Q2 2014 Film Domestic Release Date (ending 9/30/13) Despicable Me 2 7/3/2013 Pacific Rim 7/12/2013 Turbo 7/19/2013 The Wolverine 7/26/2013 The Smurfs 2 7/31/2013 300: Rise of an Empire 8/2/2013 Metallica: Through the 8/9/2013 Never Percy Jackson: Sea of 8/16/2013 Monsters One Direction Concert 8/30/2013 Movie Battle of the Year: The 9/13/2013 Dream Team Cloudy With a Chance of 9/27/2013 Meatballs 2 Fiscal Q3 2014 Film Domestic Release Date (ending Sin City: A Dame to Die 10/4/2013 12/31/13) For Gravity 10/4/2013 The Seventh Son 10/18/2013 Thor: The Dark World 11/8/2013 Frozen 11/27/2013 Postman Pat: The Movie--You Know You Are 11/27/2013 The One The Hobbit 2: The 12/13/2013 Desolation of Smaug Walking With Dinosaurs 12/20/2013 47 Ronin 12/25/2013 Sources: Rentrak and imdb.com.

Cautionary Note on Forward-Looking Statements This press release includes forward-looking information and statements, including but not limited to: statements concerning anticipated future financial and operating performance; RealD’s ability to continue to derive substantial revenue from the licensing of RealD’s 3D technologies for use in the motion picture industry, as well as RealD’s relationships with consumer electronics manufacturers and its ability to generate substantial revenue from the licensing of RealD’s 3D technologies for use in the 3D consumer electronics market; 3D motion picture releases and conversions scheduled for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 ending March 31, 2013 and the first, second and third quarters of fiscal 2014 ending March 31, 2014, their commercial success and consumer preferences; our ability to increase the number of RealD-enabled screens in domestic and international markets and market share; our ability to supply our solutions to our customers on a timely basis; RealD's relationships with its exhibitor and studio partners and the business model for 3D eyewear in North America; the progress, timing and amount of expenses associated with RealD’s research and development activities; market and industry trends, including growth in 3D content; RealD’s projected operating results; and competitive pressures in domestic and international markets. These statements are based on our management’s current expectations and beliefs, as well as a number of assumptions concerning future events. Such forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other important factors, many of which are outside management’s control that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements. The Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the twelve months ended March 23, 2012, the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the second fiscal quarter ended September 21, 2012 and other documents filed with the SEC include a more detailed discussion of the risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements. RealD undertakes no obligation to update publicly the information contained in this press release, or any forward-looking statements, to reflect new information, events or circumstances after the date they were made, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures To supplement RealD’s financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, RealD provides Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow as supplemental measures of its performance. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss), plus net interest expense, income and other taxes, and depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of share-based compensation expense, exhibitor option expense and certain other items not considered by RealD management to be indicative of the company’s core operating performance. The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less total capital expenditures in a given period (e.g., purchases of cinema systems and property and equipment on a combined basis). RealD presents Adjusted EBITDA in reporting its financial results to provide investors with additional tools to evaluate RealD’s operating results in a manner that focuses on what RealD’s management believes to be its ongoing business operations. RealD presents free cash flow to provide investors a metric for our capacity to generate cash from our operating and investing activities to sustain our operating activities. RealD’s management does not itself, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider any such Non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are used by management for planning purposes, including: the preparation of internal budgets, forecasts and strategic plans; in analyzing the effectiveness of business strategies; to evaluate potential acquisitions; in making compensation decisions; and in communications with its Board of Directors concerning financial performance. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company’s presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for management’s discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as tax and debt service payments. Adjusted EBITDA also differs from the amounts calculated under the similarly titled definition in our credit agreement, which is further adjusted to reflect certain other cash and non-cash charges and is used to determine compliance with financial covenants and the Company’s ability to engage in certain activities, such as incurring additional debt and making certain restricted payments.
