Kinepolis, the financial year 2009
Letter to shareholders
Dear shareholder,
2009 was an extraordinary year for Kinepolis in more than
one way. The continuing crisis and the economic uncertainties that plagued numerous companies left Kinepolis too
facing some specific challenges. With a revenue increase
of almost 7%, recurring profit 34% higher than in 2008
and a debt ratio at its lowest level ever (€ 89.4 million at
31 December 2009), Kinepolis can look back on 2009 with
satisfaction. Both the consumer market and the business to
business segment more than held up in 2009, despite the
impact of the economic stagnation on screen advertising.
The strategic turnaround Kinepolis pushed through two
years ago is paying dividends. Our strategic objectives to be
the best cinema operator, the best marketer and the best
property manager get across and we wish to perpetuate
them in the future.
The new way of working together and the smoother
exchange of internal experience enabled Kinepolis to
streamline its operating processes, which optimised
daily management in all multiplexes and in the various
operational segments. Accordingly, the improvement in our
results is to a large degree due to the measures introduced
in recent years, which were rolled out by our employees
with great enthusiasm and dedication. We would like to
warmly thank the entire Kinepolis team for their efforts.

Eddy Duquenne, Philip Ghekiere and Joost Bert
If we are to strengthen relations with our 22 million visitors,
their satisfaction is crucial. For the near future, the main
goal is to get to know our customers better and respond
to their needs and expectations in targeted ways. 2010 will
be the year in which we listen to our customers even more
than we have done in the past, to tailor the Kinepolis offering to the demands of the market to an even higher degree.
That goes for movies and alternative programming as well
as the full customer experience, in which the look and feel
of our multiplexes, the customer-oriented welcome, the
food range and the general experience of our visitors are
decisive.

kinepolis group
Thanks to our efforts in property management, the valuation of our sites and buildings has been increased and
improved.
Now the strategic decisions taken in the past have started
to pay dividends, Kinepolis wishes to continue along the
same path. In the current economic circumstances 2010 will
be a year of special challenges. We will continue to invest at
a considered pace in the remodelling of our multiplexes, in
digital, 3D and event technology, and in creating a unique
customer experience. Kinepolis is a pioneer in all these
areas and we will with great enthusiasm continue to live up
to that reputation in 2010. It is our task to protect and nurture
that positive development.
Kinepolis would like to highlight the positive relations with all
our stakeholders at the end of fiscal 2009. We owe our good
performance in 2009 also to our employees, movie buffs,
customers, suppliers and all other partners. We wish to share
the success of our group with our shareholders, which is why
we propose raising the dividend for 2009 by 39%. Above all,
we would like to thank everyone for the confidence placed in
Kinepolis this past year.

Belangrijke gebeurtenissen 2009
15 May 2009: The General Meeting decided to pay out a
gross dividend of €0.66 per share to shareholders.
June 2009: Eddy Duquenne became a member of the
Commission de Réflexion of the French cinema
federation FNCF. With this move, Kinepolis hopes to
contribute to the development of the cinema market in
France.
July 2009: Kinepolis sold its shareholding in CinemaxX
AG. The transaction generated a profit for Kinepolis in
fiscal 2009 equal to the sale price (€3 million).
September 2009: Philippe Halhoute was appointed
vice-country manager of Kinepolis France
April 2009: Kinepolis forwent the 50% option in
Imagimons (Mons, Belgium), bringing time-consuming
and expensive legal proceedings to an end.
October 2009: Kinepolis decided to scrap the Médiacité
cinema project in Liege, as a consequence of persistent
proceedings based on points of competition law.
1 May 2009: Henk Rogiers was appointed CFO.
4 May 2009: The Court of Appeal rejected the demand
of the French multiplex chain UGC to suspend the
decision of the Belgian Competition Authority of 1

November 2009: Carl Lenaerts was appointed
vice-country manager Kinepolis Belgium.
26 November 2009: Kinepolis issued a Commercial
Paper with a programme scale of € 50 million, intended
for short-term financing. The financing is supported by
the syndicated credit, represents a diversification of the
sources of finance drawn on by Kinepolis and lowers the
interest costs.

was no longer needed for the expansion, renovation or replacement of an existing
Kinepolis multiplex by another cinema and the construction or acquisition (but not
replacement) of an additional cinema in Belgium did have to been formally reported
until 1 October 2011.

Management report
In 2009 Kinepolis Group generated € 231.2 million in
revenues, 6.6% more than the preceding year. This
resulted in a rise in recurring (1) EBITDA (2) of 10.3% to
€ 58.1 million. The non-recurring profit rose by 34%
to € 20.4 million. The group reported a free cash
flow (3) of € 39.9 million (+316%). At 31 December 2009
the net financial debt was € 89.4 million.
Box office income (income from ticket sales) rose by 8% in
2009. Kinepolis Group welcomed 22.0 million paying customers in 2009, 0.5% more than in 2008. Good visitor figures
were posted in all countries, thanks to the strong movie
offering, especially in the summer and the second half of
the year. In spite of the tough economic conditions, growth
was achieved in France and Spain. Belgium experienced a
limited fall. The success of Flemish movie Loft (2008) was
not equalled in 2009.
Revenues
(1) After elimination of non-recurring transactions.
(2) EBITDA is not a recognised IFRS term. Kinepolis has defined the concept by adding
depreciations, amortisations, impairments and provisions to the operating profit, and
subtracting any reversals or uses of the same items.
(3) Kinepolis Group defines the free cash flow as the cash flow generated from operating
profits less the investments in intangible assets and property, plant and equipment
and investment property, paid interest charges, purchase of own shares and dividend
payments, including the sales of property, plant and equipment and other financial assets.
The revenues of € 231.2 million were almost
7% higher than in 2008 and break down as

(1) exclusive of Cinema City Poznan, operated by the ITIT group
In theatre sales (ITS, income from the sale of drinks, snacks
and retail in the cinema) rose by 5% compared with 2008.
Thanks to the success of the new self-service shop (Mega
Candy), which offers cinemagoers a broader range and
greater convenience, ITS revenues per visitor continued to
rise (especially in Belgium), in spite of the economic crisis.
Business to business revenues (B2B) performed better, rising
3% compared with 2008. Events such as conferences and
corporate parties performed well (+8%). Screen advertising
on the other hand was affected by the economic crisis
(-13%).
In 2009 the turnover of Kinepolis Film Distribution (KFD)
rose to € 3.5 million. De Helaasheid der Dingen by Felix
van Groeningen, Dossier K. by Jan Verheyen and the
Studio 100 productions Het Geheim van Mega Mindy
and Plop en de Kabouterbaby were the highlights. The
distribution of non-Flemish movies such as the musical
Fame, the teenage comedy 17 Again and the lowbudget horror Paranormal Activity was also a success.
Lastly, property income experienced positive growth
thanks to efforts to drive up occupancy of business
spaces and various campaigns to valorise property
potential.
Recurring EBITDA (REBITDA)
In 2009 recurring EBITDA was € 58.1 million, a rise of
10% compared with 2008 (€ 52.7 million). This can be
explained on the one hand by the favourable turnover
growth, steps to increase the margin (product mix,
Mega Candy investments, B2B) and cost controls.
Efficiency improvements compensated for the effect of
inflation adjustments on payroll costs.

Profit for the period
Profit for 2009 was € 22.2 million, compared with
€ 15.2 million in 2008, a rise of 46%. After elimination
of non-recurring transactions, the recurring profit for
2009 (€ 20.4 million) was still significantly better that the
recurring profit for 2008 (€ 15.2 million). This is mainly
attributable to a rise in the operating profit and a
decrease in the financial costs.
The non-recurring items were: € 3 million generated on
the sale of the participation in CinemaxX, a provision
for uncollectable invoices of € -1.7 million (Screenvision),
costs of restructuring of € -1.2 million, the withdrawal of
service of not fully depreciated equipment of € -0.5 million, the write-down on the halted Mediacité multiplex
project in Liege of € -0.5 million, the rectification of VAT
provisions of € 1.5 million and taxes of € 1.1 million.
Current cash flow and net financial debt
The current cash flow was € 39.9 million in 2009 compared with € 9.6 million in 2008. This strong cash flow
generation was the consequence of the growth in profit,
the decrease in paid interest charges and the improved
management of the working capital. There were also
some one-off items, including € 3.0 million generated on
the sale of CinemaxX and one-off improvements in the
working capital (€ 12.0 million).
The trade payables rose as a consequence of the timing
of a number of investments and the management of
the payment terms. The other payables rose among
other things due to received advances from real estate
projects, increase in activities, higher movie distribution
royalties, prepaid sales and capital subsidies in France.
In 2009 an € 18.8 million investment was made in new
property, plant and machinery, a rise of € 4.6 million
compared with the previous year (€ 14.2 million).
The conservative financial policy was continued,
oriented to a further strengthening of the balance sheet
by reducing debt. The net financial debt of Kinepolis
fell by 30% from € 129.2 million at the end of 2008 to
€ 89.4 million at 31 December 2009. The NFD/EBITDA
ratio of 1.6 was accordingly at its lowest ever level.
Kinepolis has access to a syndicated loan that runs until
2014. In 2009 Kinepolis took up € 30 million less than
in 2008. Futhermore, at the end of 2009 a first tranche
of € 9.5 million of the Commercial Paper programme
(launched in the autumn of 2009) was issued. This
programme was launched with a view to the further
optimisation of the financial costs and diversification of
the sources of finance.
the financial year 2009 annual report 2009 11
Since 2008, to hedge the interest risk Kinepolis mainly
uses derivative financial instruments for which the
movement in fair value runs directly over equity and so
has no impact on the profit for the fiscal year (cash flow
hedge accounting). In 2009 the impact on equity was € 0.1
million compared with € -3.3 million in 2008, due to the
strong fall in the interest rate.
Balance sheet
Property, plant and equipment (including those available
for sale) of € 298.1 million accounted for 87% of the
balance sheet total at 31 December 2009. This includes
land and buildings (including those available for sale
and property investment) with a carrying value of € 219.5
million.
At 31 December 2009 equity was € 132.5 million or 38.6%
of the balance sheet total, a 5.4% improvement compared
with solvency at the end of 2008.
Line-up
2010, which began with Avatar, is expected to be a strong
movie year with various major sequels, including Toy Story
3, Shrek 4, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 1), The
Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage
of the Dawn Treader and Step Up 3. Other international
highlights are Alice in Wonderland, Inception and Prince of
Persia. The movie year is characterised by major 3D movies, such as Toy Story 3, Shrek 4, Step Up 3, Harry Potter and
the Deathly Hallows (Part 1) and Alice in Wonderland.
Many local movies are also scheduled for release in 2010,
including Zot van A (Belgium), L’Arnacoeur (France) and
Torrente 4 (Spain).
In 2010 Kinepolis launched many new initiatives in the
domain of sport, music, TV series and documentaries.
The UEFA football presentations in Belgium in association
with EXQI Sport (Alfacam) provided a taste of sporting
things to come.

16 kinepolis group
A number of risks and uncertainties relevant to the
company are described in brief below.
Market risks and financial instruments
As a multinational, Kinepolis is exposed to various
types of financial risk, including exchange rate risk and
interest rate risk.
Kinepolis endeavours to minimise the negative impact
on financial profit by using financial instruments
to hedge risks as part of a global risk management
strategy.
Application of the Act of 17 December 2008 for the
establishment of an Audit Committee
The composition of the Audit Committee complies with the
obligations included in the Act.
Pursuant to Article 526bis of the Companies Code the Audit
Committee is composed of two independent members of
the Board of Directors with the appropriate expertise and
professional experience in accounting and auditing bearing
in mind their previous and/or current business activities.
Kinepolis manages its debts by combining short-,
medium- and long-term borrowings. The mix of debts
with fixed and floating interest is established at group
level. At the end of December 2009 he group’s net
financial debt was € 89.4 million. Kinepolis has concluded interest swaps and interest options to manage
the risk of interest fluctuations. These interest hedges
totalled € 105.0 million on 31 December 2009.
The Audit Committee is composed as follows:
Mr. Geert Vanderstappen
Mr. Rafaël Decaluwé
Principal risks and uncertainties
The company took appropriate steps to ensure the most
efficient control of risks without being able to provide
certainty that these steps will control these risks in full in all
circumstances.
the financial year 2009 annual report 2009 17
Operating risks
The business environment in which the company operates
is characterised by uncertain factors such as the quality
and local character of the movie offering, the individual
cultural character of cinema visits, the trends in the media
and entertainment sector, and the weather in the various
countries. Kinepolis has no direct impact on these factors,
but does manage their consequences through operational
efficiency and flexibility in terms of staffing and mix of
activities among other things.
Various risks
In addition to the traditional risks facing all companies
and in the context of full transparency, the company
wishes to state that with regard to the cancelled urban
development permit on 30 September 2008 for the
Kinepolis multiplex in Ostend, Ostend municipality is
working with due speed on the draft of a municipal
spatial execution plan (GRUP) and an environmental
impact report for the area in question, after which
a new urban development permit may be issued to
normalise the existing situation of Kinepolis Ostend.
Kinepolis also has complete confidence in the favourable outcome of the civil restoration claim brought
before the court of first instance in Bruges by an owners’ association of a neighbouring apartment block.
Lastly, the company has taken note of the planned
development and repurposing of the Heysel plateau
by the municipality of Brussels.
Profit appropriation and dividend
In its proposal to the General Meeting concerning the
appropriation of profit and payment of dividend the
Board of Directors took various factors into consideration, including the company’s financial situation,
operating profits, current and expected cash flows and
expansion plans.
Based on a payout ratio of 30% calculated on recurring
profit as from fiscal 2009, it is proposed to pay out
a gross dividend of € 0.92 per share for fiscal 2009.
Subject to the approval of the General Meeting, the
Board of Directors has decided to make the dividend

available to shareholders through a financial institution
of their choosing on 2 June 2010 upon presentation of

individuals can choose when, where, how and with whom they enjoy themselves.
Kinepolis endeavours to provide its customers with original relaxation activities and
high-quality business experiences, aiming for collective experiences exclusive to the
Kinepolis environment.

corporate profile annual report 2009 21
Strategic highlights
The unique position of Kinepolis has been supported
since 2008 by three strategic highlights, which are a
source of great strength for the company and ensure it
is ready for a future in which creativity, dynamism and
dialogue will be key to establishing a long-time relationship with the contemporary public.
Kinepolis wants to be:
the best cinema operator;
the best marketer;
the best cinema property manager.
The implementation of this strategic vision over the next
few years will be basis for the creation of sustainable
shareholder value.
The Hollywood model has had its day and succumbed
to the need for a new, contemporary approach, oriented
to all age groups and diverse cultural styles and interests.
Kinepolis has all the know-how and the motivated team
to meet these challenges. The group will do everything
within its power over the next few years to implement this
philosophy and claim a leading role in the various business
segments it operates in.
The best cinema operator
Cinema continues to be one of the more visible core
businesses of Kinepolis. With this in mind, Kinepolis wants
to earn a reputation as the best cinema operator. This
goal relates both to the technical aspects of the offering,
especially striking here is the far-reaching digitisation,
and its content. Traditional movies are increasingly complemented with presentations of another cultural dimension,
such as sporting or musical events, which appeals to a new
audience.
22 kinepolis group
The best marketer
Kinepolis wants to establish a personal relationship with
its target groups. The anonymous relationship with past
cinema audiences must make way for more intensive
interaction with visitors, before, during and after presentations. Through the development and maintenance of its
customer relations Kinepolis wants to take its traditional
marketing efforts to a new level, which will form the
foundation for a more personal approach and dialogue
between Kinepolis and its visitors.
The best cinema property manager
The unique position held by Kinepolis also has its origins
in the group’s specific property management. Kinepolis
controls the vast majority of its properties, which means
it has great flexibility to utilise the available spaces to the
good of the group’s global strategy and make optimal use
of the infrastructure to achieve its strategic goals.
Organisation
Kinepolis is organised on a geographical basis. The most
important geographical markets are Belgium, France
and Spain. The organisation serves to improve customer
orientation, raise operational efficiency and optimise
property utilisation and management.
It is characterised by shorter lines, allowing decisions to
be taken faster, and a clear division of responsibilities
and goals.
Activities are now streamlined into five units. Cinema
Operations takes care of activities in the multiplexes.
Real Estate is responsible for property management and
utilisation. Kinepolis Film Distribution (KFD) looks after
movie distribution. Digital Cinema Services (DCS) delivers technological support. The Shared Services Center is
occupied with admin services and support.
Local, national and international permanent and ad hoc
committees are established as needed to study specific
issues. They are tasked with ensuring that information
is shared between the various parts of the group and
potential synergies are generated.
Innovation and customer experience
Alternative content
Alternative content is the digital programming of events
screened in Kinepolis cinemas – live or otherwise. That
includes premieres of TV series ahead of broadcast,
musical highlights such as rock and pop concerts and
corporate profile annual report 2009 23
operas, sports events and much more. This innovative
event-based programming – sometimes combined with
traditional movie screenings – is experiencing exciting
growth as more and more customers are hooked. The new
cinema experiences are the result of continual investments
by the group in innovation.
Opera in the Cinema was a frontrunner in this respect in
2009. The 2009-2010 opera season, which opened with
Tosca in October, was a smash hit. Live opera in association
with the New York Metropolitan Opera (Kinepolis Belgium,
Kinepolis France), Opéra Comique de Paris (Kinepolis
France) and various opera houses in Italy and Spain
(Kinepolis Spain) attracted more than 70 000 opera lovers
to Kinepolis in the various countries in 2009. Opera in the
Cinema is well worth a repeat. A new, bumper opera season
will launch in 2010 and some operas will be beamed live
and repeated at a later time.
In October Robbie Williams performed at the Roundhouse
in London in the opening concert in the BBC Electric Proms
2009. In partnership with the BBC, the event was beamed
live in high definition by satellite to a European cinema network, including 19 Kinepolis Group cinemas, to the delight
of 3 000 Robbie Williams fans who attended the comeback
show at Kinepolis. Iron Maiden also attracted their fans to
Kinepolis with Flight 666, a unique, global date for Maiden
fans. Voice Mail, Julien Clerc and many other performers
also brought music to the cinema.
The programme was also enhanced with live theatre
(Theater in the Cinema in association with the National
Theatre in London) and live ballet (Diaghilev’s Ballets in
association with Opéra Garnier in Paris). Such popular TV
series as Flikken and De Kampioenen (Belgium) were also
shown on the big screen.
To top it all, Kinepolis Spain beamed the final of the French
Open live and in 3D by satellite to the big screen in June
2009 in a very successful pilot project.
24 kinepolis group
The digitisation of screens goes hand in hand with the
development of an ICT network in cinemas for movie
distribution and screen monitoring.
Every multiplex is equipped with a hi-def satellite receiver
system for the presentation of alternative content. Events
are regularly screened in crystal-clear definition and 5.1
surround sound. Digital is now the ideal platform for
tailored public and private screenings.
Leadership in technology
Audiences lapped up the 3D showings of Ice Age 3, Up
and Avatar. The sturdy Dolby 3D specs and powerful
Barco projectors ensure that every 3D showing is a unique
experience. A string of high-profile 3D movies are set for
release in 2010, including Toy Story 3, Shrek 4, Step Up 3,
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part I) and Alice in
Wonderland.
Digital cinema
Ticketing
Kinepolis has gone digital, with digital projectors and
movies, on the one hand, and a string of digital signage,
advertising, programming and information screens, on the
other. Network-controlled flat screens provide customers
with up-to-the-minute information on screenings, seat
availability and special offers.
Moviegoers can select their own seat when buying a
ticket at virtually every Kinepolis multiplex. The ticketing
software automatically identifies the most central
Kinepolis continued to open new digital screens to meet
increasing demand for digital movies. In Belgium the share
of digital screens at the end of 2009 was 80%, in France 74%
and in Spain 39%. In Belgium 20% of the digital auditoriums
are equipped with 3D systems. In France and Spain the
share is 25%. The high performance and high-tech character
has led many directors and distributors to select Kinepolis
to host their movie premiere in the presence of cast and
crew.

interiors, retail and entertainment facilities with a view to
further improving customer perception and service.
The ICT approach to ticketing is integrated and centralised to guarantee optimal service at all Kinepolis points of
sale. Developed in-house, this ticket and sales platform,
which incorporates all sales channels and the entire back
office in a single IT solution not only allows Kinepolis
to provide a fast and specific response to the wishes of
visitors; it also ensures optimal operational efficiency.
Central tenets in this strategy are:
ICT is responsible for the installation and management
of the point-of-sale infrastructure, including payment
options, weighing equipment and voucher processing
in local languages and in accordance with local customs
and laws.
Research
Kinepolis participates in innovation projects, including
new sales channels, payment methods and broadening
customer experience, in association with centres and
partners at home and abroad. For example, ICT supports
the introduction of new voucher formulas and there are
investments in mobile ticketing and interactive systems
projects.
Refresh & Remodelling
Numerous innovative applications are introduced in the
Kinepolis multiplexes and the interiors are also being
refurbished. The Refresh & Remodelling department is
rejuvenating and updating interiors at Kinepolis at a fast
rate, as well as developing new concepts in the field of
26 kinepolis group
Automatic box office (‘self ticketing’) in contemporary
design.
Low-energy ‘edge-light’ poster frames, which
highlight the movie programme on a poster wall;
Self-service shops (Mega Candy) with wider selection
and greater convenience for customers;
High-quality seat modernisation.
In 2009 four Belgian and two French multiplexes were
given a full makeover. Kinepolis Madrid and Kinepolis
Valencia were also renovated. An ambitious programme is
also planned for 2010.
The refurbishment activities are paying dividends.
The self-service formula for drinks, snacks and retail
articles have been a success, enabling Kinepolis to
achieve the targeted increase in turnover per visitor
to the level of in-theatre sales, while improving
efficiency and reducing operating costs.
Human Resources
Kinepolis is aware that its success is largely dependent on the talent and commitment of its employees.
Including temporary staff members, 1 880 people
are concerned. The group is accordingly always
looking to create a working atmosphere in which
all employees, regardless of the type or duration of
their labour contract, are able to make optimal use
of their individual talents. By creating a solid human
resources policy Kinepolis aims to create a culture
in which initiative and personal development are
valued.
Education and training
Human resources policy is characterised by great attention for such aspects as sustainable quality, efficiency
and flexibility. These criteria are not only employed
when hiring new employees; they are also encouraged
during the employee’s career. Kinepolis invests more
than ever in its internal training systems. The Kinepolis
Academy is taking shape and part of the training is
offered digitally, as Kinepolis moves a step closer to
e-learning.
Evaluation
The new job evaluation system introduced in the
course of the previous year has already started paying
dividends. The system combines financial and quality
aspects and forms the cornerstone of the group’s
international bonus system. The new way of working
increases the involvement and responsibility of all
employees and the sense of responsibility of all employees, as well as being a practical tool for monitoring and
achieving the individual goals and strategic policy lines
of the group.
Internal communication
The internal communication is undergoing continued
streamlining. It is important that high-quality internal
communication stimulates internal learning processes,
too. By enabling experience sharing, often across
countries and departments, Kinepolis is well on the way
to becoming a ‘self-learning organisation’.
corporate profile annual report 2009 27
Sustainable enterprise
In contemporary business management, the company’s
economic role is often linked to broader social goals.
The pursuit of a way of doing business that is socially,
ecologically or culturally responsible is the basis of
sustainable enterprise, which takes account of the
company’s overall social role and its impact on all possible interest groups.
Minimising waste
Environmental concern is a permanent point for attention in the day-to-day operations of Kinepolis. Waste
prevention and sorting is an important ongoing project
that also actively involves Kinepolis visitors. Signage in
the multiplexes and large-scale awareness campaigns
prior to the main presentation help ensure the various
types of waste, primarily from the sale of refreshments
and snacks, are disposed of in the right receptacle.
Kinepolis also has contracts with specialised waste
processing and disposal firms.
Digitisation
The continuing digitisation of the audiovisual productions, which has accelerated in recent years, ensures
that Kinepolis is able to make a positive contribution to
waste prevention and the limitation of CO2 emissions.
With digital movie distribution, rolls of film no longer
need to be transported. This also limits the use of
traditional film, which requires chemical processing. The
rate of digitisation in Belgium now exceeds 80%.

Energy
The joint project with Siemens Building Technologies to
install low-energy air conditioning in the auditoria was
rolled out further in 2009. The intelligent, centralised
control of air conditioning systems has enabled Kinepolis
to achieve a significant saving on its energy bill. Energy
consumption is also given appropriate attention in renovation and new-build projects. Such factors as climatologic
conditions and ambient heat play an important role in the
conceptualisation of the Kinepolis multiplexes. Support
projects such as the use of low-energy lighting and optimal thermal insulation ensure that energy consumption is
minimised in all circumstances.
Cultural and social integration
In our ever-changing, multicultural societies Kinepolis plays
an active role in the integration of new population groups.
With that goal in mind, the expectations of minorities
are also addressed in the programming of spaces. Turkish
cinema for one has established itself in the programming
of Kinepolis in Belgium and similar projects are running in
other countries. The success of this formula is shown by
the high attendances and visitor numbers that traditionally
could only be expected for blockbusters.
Kinepolis also works hard to improve the participation of
other population groups in film. Improved access for wheelchair users and special efforts for visitors with a handicap
are expected to ensure that all visitors are guaranteed the
unique Kinepolis experience.
In the year under review the
group supported numerous
other initiatives, including
a solidarity project of Child
Focus and Missing Children
Europe, a Unicef child
rights tour, a donation for
the victims of the Haitian
earthquake and awareness
campaigns based on
movies with an ecological
message, such as Home,
The Age of Stupid and
Dance for the Climat.
Social engagement
Kinepolis wishes to assume its social responsibility and fulfil
its social role in other ways too. KineScola is an educational
programme through which Kinepolis reaches out to
schools.
Based on a world-friendly
desire, Kinepolis wishes to focus public attention on a selection of topical issues, addressed in movies, documentaries
and total events. Social-, cultural- and ecological-inspired
movie presentations are awarded the Kinepolis World label.

Kinepolis, core businesses
Box office
Kinepolis Group welcomed 22.0 million paying customers in
2009, which was a 0.5% rise on the 2008 figure.
Good visitor figures were posted in all countries, thanks to
the strong movie offering, especially in the summer and the
second half of the year. In spite of the tough economic conditions, growth was achieved in France and Spain. Belgium
experienced a limited fall. The level of success achieved in
2008 by Flemish movie Loft was not reproduced in 2009,
however. A number of blockbusters did nevertheless
perform outstandingly. Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs,
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Avatar (a
success in the last two weeks of December),
Up and 2012 had the most successful runs.
Local movies like De Helaasheid der Dingen
(Belgium), Le Petit Nicolas (France) and Agora
(Spain) also performed well.
Alternative content in 3D is taking on an
increasingly important role in the programme. 3D (Ice Age 3, Up, Avatar) has been
welcomed with enthusiasm and culture and
core businesses annual report 2009 31
sports lovers have also been served with numerous
events, including live opera, theatre, ballet, concerts
and sporting finals. Opera in the Cinema led the pack,
attracting more than 70 000 opera buffs to our multiplexes in 2009. These new cinema experiences are the
result of continual group investments in innovation.
The events programme clearly appeals to new target
groups, such as opera lovers, football supporters and
fans of all music genres. Kinepolis expects a great
deal of these new developments, which reinforces its
image as a trendsetter in the industry.
In 2009 Kinepolis organised various events for specific
target groups, such as the continuation of the Magic
Sundays / Matinées Magiques for families and the
successful females-only [email protected], which
was a smash-hit sell-out, with two XL editions in 2009.
Popular themes were also given appropriate attention,
with special events for Halloween, Valentine’s and
Christmas. The hosting of exclusive movie promotions, activities and special movie decorations ensured
that there was always something going on.
Many national and international stars of the big and
small screen visited Kinepolis in 2009, strengthening
its image as a temple of movies. Kiefer Sutherland
and Reese Witherspoon (Monsters vs Aliens), Zac Efron
(17 Again), Pedro Almodóvar and Penélope Cruz (Los
Abrazos Rotos), Alejandro Amenabar and Rachel Weisz
(Agora), Leslie Nielsen (Spanish Movie) and Miley Cyrus
(Hannah Montana: The Movie) were among those
who came to Kinepolis Madrid to present their new
movies. Jean Dujardin (Lucky Luke) visited Kinepolis
Imagibraine and Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 4) Kinepolis
Lomme.

In theater sales (ITS)
Theatre sales (ITS) comprises all revenues from the sale of
beverages, snacks and other products in multiplexes.
The food and beverages menu meets the demand for convenience among a large number of moviegoers, who want
to eat and drink in a pleasant atmosphere in the multiplex.
The group is also responding to increasing demand for
healthy food and beverages. In addition to proven sellers
like cola, potato chips and popcorn, Kinepolis now also
offers a choice of fruit juices and waters, yoghurt drinks,
fruit and more.
In 2009 ITS revenues rose by 5% compared with 2008.
ITS revenues per visitor continued to rise, in spite of the
purchasing power crisis, especially in Belgium. This rise
is bolstered by the further expansion of the range and
the innovative sales concepts. The new concept of large
self-service shops (Mega Candy) introduced in various mul-
tiplexes in 2008 and 2009 has been a remarkable success.
The aim is to invest further in the shop concept and to roll
it out in virtually all Kinepolis multiplexes.
Business to business (B2B)
B2B generates revenues from business events, which are
continually diversified and professionalised. This revenue
channel is entirely independent of movie ticket sales.
Kinepolis multiplexes are promoted as B2B locations with
digital projectors, extensive, tailored conferencing facilities
and service, based on media campaigns and successful
partnerships. Screen advertising, sampling, digital
displays in the foyers and advertising panels helped make
Kinepolis a top-of-mind corporate brand among Belgian,
French and Spanish cinemagoers. Digital projectors with
3D facilities, tailored conferencing infrastructure and
service, more energetic prospecting, intensive media
campaigns and successful partnerships enabled Kinepolis
multiplexes to present themselves as B2B locations like
never before.
In 2009 Kinepolis conferences and corporate parties
drew a lot of approval once again. Revenues were better
than expected, rising 3% compared with 2008, in spite
of a sharp fall in income from screen advertising, which
was affected by the economic crisis. Kinepolis multiplexes hosted more than 3 000 events in all territories.
Such prestigious names as Coca-Cola, Microsoft, Apple,
Carrefour, Repsol, Banco Santander and BNP Paribas
Fortis selected Kinepolis to host their conferences,
premieres, employee events and more.

K. by Jan Verheyen and the Studio 100 production Het
Geheim van Mega Mindy.
A wide selection of Flemish film premieres is scheduled
for 2010. Bo by director Hans Herbots (based on the
book Het Engelenhuis by Dirk Bracke) was released
on 10 February. The crime thriller Wolf, starring Axel
Daeseleire and Pieter Embrechts followed in March. 22
mei, Koen Mortier’s long anticipated second feature
after Ex Drummer and two movie debuts – Adem by
Hans Van Nuffel and TurQuaze by Kadir Balci are also
scheduled for release. Other features to look forward
to include the romantic comedies Oh No ! It’s a Woman
by Hilde Van Mieghem and Zot van A. by Jan Verheyen.
Young moviegoers will be well served in 2010, too, with
premieres including the Studio 100 productions Wickie
de Viking and a second Mega Mindy feature, as well as
Movie distribution
Film distribution activities are focused on Flemish movies,
among other things. Kinepolis Film Distribution (KFD) has
earned a strong position in this field in Belgium. With KFD,
Kinepolis shows that it wishes to support Flemish films.
More than 1.9 million cinemagoers saw a Flemish movie
at Kinepolis in 2009. Flemish cinema accordingly consolidated its gains a year after all records were broken thanks
to one movie – Loft. The undisputed winner in 2009 was
Felix van Groeningen’s De Helaasheid der Dingen, which
attracted more than 440 000 visitors, followed by Dossier
34 kinepolis group
the new 3D animation Sammy’s Adventures, The Secret
Passage by Ben Stassen, who was behind the smash 3D
animation Fly Me To The Moon.
Non-Flemish movies are also creating a stir. For these,
KFD works in association with independent distributors
such as E1 Entertainment and A-Film, two Dutch content
companies.
In 2009 KFD distributed 71 movies, including international smashes such as Fame, the musical, teen comedy
17 Again, horror sensation Paranormal Activity and Coco
Avant Chanel with the radiant Audrey Tautou in the
starring role.
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnussus (the final movie to
feature Heath Ledger), the thriller Edge of Darkness with
Mel Gibson, Precious, which won two Oscars, romantic
drama Dear John, which knocked Avatar off the top of
the box office in the United States and comedy Kick-Ass
starring Nicolas Cage are all expected to pull in big
audiences in 2010.
Real estate
Real Estate is a separate business unit within the group
tasked with coordinating property management and
utilisation. At year’s end 2009 Kinepolis had a portfolio of 23
multiplexes, comprising 317 screens and 94 226 seats. 54 000
sq m of floor space in these multiplexes is leased to third
parties.
Kinepolis Real Estate invested efforts in three areas in
2009: increasing business rental income, expansion and
redevelopment, and refurbishment.
core businesses annual report 2009 35
Rise in business rental income
Following on from 2008, in 2009 efforts were again
invested in driving up occupancy by filling the last
empty business spaces, creating additional spaces and
introducing retail concepts to improve diversification. In
2009 occupancy of the business spaces rose to 92% and
business rental income also rose compared with 2008.
Direct debit, an important development in the management of business spaces, was 98% in 2009.
Since 2007 tenants that do not radiate the image
demanded by Kinepolis have been replaced. The halting of
the summer disco in the parking lot in Madrid is one example of this strategy. A number of historic rental disputes
were also settled amicably.
Additional commercial spaces were created to maximise
utilisation of the available surface area and repurpose any
overcapacity. All contracts have already been signed for
this, ensuring that occupancy will rise again in 2010. The
impact on income is not yet clear because some new tenants are still in the permit and start-up phase.
36 kinepolis group
Kinepolis is property owner of Cinema City Poznan,
which has been operated by Israeli group IT International
Theaters (ITIT) since 19 January 2007.
As property owner, Kinepolis invested special attention
in the high-quality business places, which led to a rise in
occupancy within two years from 58% to 100%. The large
spaces in the Polish multiplex are being given additional
uses. For instance, in 2010 a climbing wall will be erected
in the lobby.
Kinepolis Real Estate now has a robust portfolio that can
be expanded further over the next few years.
Expansion and redevelopment
Studies are ongoing into the potential of a number of sites
and possible sites, not least in France and Spain. Existing
sites will be developed, while land with less strategic value
for Kinepolis will be sold in whole or in part.
A new entrance was opened at Kinepolis Ghent in 2009.
Apartments were built alongside the multiplex, in association with Groep Blijweert. Kinepolis contributed the
land and will be compensated with a number of studio
apartments and flats. Delivery is expected in 2010. An
agreement is being prepared with Liege University (ULG)
for the sale of the Opera cinema, which has been empty
since 2004.
The development of the planned shopping mall next to
Cinema City in association with Spanish group Bogaris
is advancing on schedule. Marketing efforts are being
invested before the permit applications are made.
Refurbishment
A series of replacement investments and refurbishments
were completed in the older multiplexes in consultation
with the Refresh & Remodelling department, as part of
a long-term plan. (For more details, see Innovation and
customer experience). The exteriors will be systematically
renovated in the future..

Corporate Governance
Pursuant to the Belgian Corporate Governance Code of 12
March 2009, on 17 December 2009 the Board of Directors
approved the revised version of the Corporate Governance
Charter of Kinepolis Group nv of 18 December 2007. The
Charter can be consulted on the Kinepolis website under

Board of Directors and special
Committees
Composition of the Board of Directors
At 31 December 2009 the Board of Directors consisted
of eight members, four of whom are independent of
the majority shareholders and management. These
directors fulfil the criteria for independent directors
as stated in the new Article 526ter of the Companies
Code and were nominated by the Board of Directors
based on the recommendation of the Nomination and
Remuneration Committee. The majority shareholders
did not execute their nomination right with regard to
these appointments.
The Board regularly reviews the criteria for its composition and of its committees, in light of ongoing and
future developments and expectations, as well as its
strategic objectives.
During 2009, Mr Rafaël Decaluwé (Gobes Comm.V.)
and Mrs Marion Debruyne (Marion Debruyne bvba)
were appointed independent directors. The
proposed changes to the composition of the Board
of Directors follows the shareholding reshuffle (at the
end of 2006) and constitutes the final phase in the
Corporate Governance annual report 2009 39
appointment of professional, independent directors
with extensive business experience to strengthen the
Board of Directors. Marc Van Heddeghem (Managing
Director Redevco Belgium) and Geert Vanderstappen
(Managing Partner Pentahold) had already been
appointed (2008). The new composition is in line with
the need for diversity and complementarity of skills.
Professor Dr Marion Debruyne is Associate Professor
and partner at the Marketing Competence Centre
of Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School. She is
specialised in strategic marketing , innovation and
competition.
Mr Rafaël Decaluwé is a former CEO of Bekaert who has
had a long career in financial management positions
at a number of multinationals, including Samsonite,
Fisher-Price and Black &Decker. Mr Decaluwé is chairman of the Board of Directors of Jensen Group nv.
Baron Hugo Vandamme (HRV nv) was president of the
Board of Directors until May 2008, accepting a seat as
independent director in the interests of continuity when
his term of office ended. After the new composition of the
Board of Directors and the induction of the new management team, he stepped down as an independent director
on 15 May 2009 to concentrate on his many other duties in
world business and culture. The Board of Directors would
like to thank him for his contribution to good governance
at the Group over the past years.
Bearing in mind the new career orientation of Mrs Mimi
Lamote (Eugenius bvba) she was not reappointed. The
Board of Directors thanks Mrs Lamote for her valued
contribution to the development of the Group.
The table below shows the composition of the Board of
Directors as well as the attendance record of the various
directors with respect to the eight meetings that took
place in 2009.

Remuneration Report
Kinepolis Group provides transparent information on
remuneration of members of the Board of Directors and
Executive Management to its shareholders and other
stakeholders.
Procedure for establishing the remuneration
policy and level for the Board of Directors
and Executive Management
During the previous financial year the Company formalised
the remuneration policy for its directors and Executive
Management, as developed by the Nomination and
Remuneration Committee (hereinafter ‘NRC’) and published in
the new Corporate Governance Charter adopted by the Board
of Directors on 17 December 2009.
This policy means that the global annual remuneration and
the corresponding policy for the members of the Board of
Directors are established by the General Meeting on the basis
of a proposal by the Board of Directors, advised by the NRC.
The allocation of the global portfolio to the individual
members is a decision of the Board of Directors on the
recommendation of the NRC.
The Board of Directors decides the remuneration as well as
the remuneration policy for Executive Management on the
recommendation of the NRC.
The NRC applied the following principles in 2009 in its
recommendations to the Board of Directors with regard
to the global remuneration of the Board of Directors, the
remuneration of the individual directors and Executive
Management:
remuneration must be sufficient to attract, retain and
motivate directors and members of Executive
Management who meet the profile required by the
Board of Directors;
for the execution of their duties as a member of the
Board of Directors, non-executive directors receive a
fixed amount for attending a meeting of the Board of
Directors;
a fixed amount is also allocated to the members and
chairman of the committees for attending each
meeting of the relevant committee;
the president and the honorary president of the
Board of Directors and the Chief executive Officers
are allocated a fixed annual amount;
the non-executive directors do not receive any
bonuses, participation in long-term share-related
incentive programmes, benefits in kind or benefits
related to pension plans;
44 kinepolis group
in addition to fixed remuneration, Executive
Management receives variable remuneration
dependent on the achievement of their qualitative
objectives and quantitative management targets
based on the results of the Group and its subsidiaries.
Next to this variable remuneration, which is dependent
on the achievement of the above management
targets, as established annually by the Board of
Directors on the recommendation of the NRC, in the
event of substantial outperformance with regard to
these quantitative targets, an outperformance bonus
will be allocated. Long-term incentives in the form of
share options or other financial instruments of the
Company or its subsidiaries may also be allocated to
the Executive Management. The remuneration
package for Executive Management may also include
participation in the corporate pension plan and the
use of a company car;
the exit arrangement for the early termination of the
contract of a member of Executive Management will
not exceed the equivalent of twelve months’ basic and
variable remuneration. In certain justified
circumstances, on the recommendation of the NRC
and if so stated in the contract, this amount may be
higher but never higher than the equivalent of
eighteen months’ basic and variable remuneration. In
any event, the exit arrangement shall not exceed
twelve months’ basic remuneration and the variable
remuneration if the person has not achieved the
performance criteria stated in his or her contract.
Remuneration for directors
The Company’s non-executive directors are remunerated
for their duties with a fixed amount for each attended
meeting of the Board of Directors and any of the
committees.
The president and honorary president of the Board of
Directors and the Chief Executive Officer are allocated a
fixed annual amount.
The amounts are decided by the Board of Directors on the
recommendation of the NRC, with due consideration for
the maximum amounts established by the shareholders.
The non-executive directors receive no other remuneration,
benefit, share-based or other incentives from the Company.

Remuneration of Executive Management
The term Executive Management refers to the two Chief
Executive Officers of the company.
The remuneration package of the Executive Management
has a fixed and a variable part.
In 2007 the fixed part of the remuneration was set by the
Board of Directors at EUR 270 000, index-linked annually, for
each member of the Executive Management.
The variable remuneration, the amount of which is
recommended by the NRC, is approved annually by the
Board of Directors, with due consideration for the need
for remuneration at the market rate proportionate to the
duties, responsibilities and management targets. For 2009
the global maximum amount in variable remuneration for
the Executive Management in total was set at EUR 400 000,
not including indexation. The significant variable part of the
remuneration ensures that the interests of the Executive
Management run parallel to the Group’s, lead to value
creation and loyalty, and provide the appropriate incentive
to achieve the short and long term targets of the Group
and its shareholders.
consolidated current profit, and qualitative, to which 30% of
the variable remuneration was linked in 2009.
In addition to the variable remuneration, in the event of
substantial outperformance with regard to the quantitative management targets, the Board of Directors on the
recommendation of the NRC has the discretionary power to
allocate a bonus, the annual amount of which is set by the
Board of Directors.
The amount of the exit remuneration for one of the members of Executive Management, in the event of change of
control of the company, shall be 24 months fixed remuneration plus the pro-rata part of the variable remuneration for
the ongoing year.
The table below provides an overview of the fixed part of
the remuneration, the other components of the remuneration (pension contributions, insurances, company cars and
so on) as well as the variable part of the remuneration for
the performance of the Executive Management in the
reported year.
The final amount of variable remuneration actually
allocated to the Executive Management depends on the
achievement of the qualitative and quantitative management targets that collectively apply to the Executive
Management and are recommended by the NRC and
approved by the Board of Directors on an annual basis.
These objectives are both quantitative, to which 70% of
the variable remuneration was linked in 2009 and the main
measure of which is the achievement of a certain level of

Long-term incentives
The goal of the 2007-2016 Share Option Plan (the ‘Plan’)
approved in 2007 is to support and achieve the following
corporate and human resource objectives:
to encourage and reward the executive directors and
members of Executive Management of the company
and its subsidiaries, who are able to contribute to the
long-term success and growth of the company and its
subsidiaries;
to assist the company and its subsidiaries in attracting
and retaining directors and members of Executive
Management with appropriate experience and skills;
to link the interests of the directors and members of
Executive Management more closely to those of the
shareholders of the company and give them possibility
of sharing in the value creation and growth of the
company.
48 kinepolis group
(3)
Pursuant to the Plan, the President and the Chief Executive
Officers were each allocated 69 308 options in 2008 and
30 000 options were allocated to the other members of
management in 2009.
In line with the ‘apply or explain’ principle, the company
decided that it was in the best interests of the company
and its shareholders to depart from the Code in a limited
number of specific cases.
These departures are explained below:
Description of the main characteristics
of the internal audit and risk control
system
A system will be implemented within Kinepolis integrating internal control processes. The Integrated Framework
for Risk Management chosen by the Board of Directors
is the one developed by the Committee of Sponsoring
Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). This
framework provides an approach for risk control and
focuses on identifying and controlling strategic, operational and reporting risks as well as risks in the field of
legislation and regulations, with the overall aim of making
the achievement of the corporate goals possible.
Kinepolis follows the design of this model in order to
control the above risks in the business processes and
financial reporting. The system is developed centrally and
uniformly applied in the various parts of the organisation
and group companies as far as possible. The system fills
in the various activity components, as prescribed by the
reference model, as well as the various roles and responsibilities with regard to internal audits and risk control.
Kinepolis uses the threshold of 20% for the submission
of motions to the General Meeting, as stipulated in the
Companies Code, rather than the threshold of 5%
recommended in the Corporate Governance Code. The
company believes that the 5% threshold for requiring
the company to place any motion on the agenda of the
General Meeting is too low, and that the 20% threshold
better reflects the Group’s shareholder structure;
the Board of Directors believes that, bearing in mind its
own limited composition, an Audit Committee
comprising two independent members – both with the
requisite auditing and accounting expertise – provides
sufficient peace of mind with regard to the efficient
functioning of the Committee;
the Nomination and Remuneration Committee is
headed by the President of the Board of Directors, who
also has a limited number of executive duties. Bearing in
mind the limited nature of these duties, the Board of
Directors believes that this does not impede his
presidency and the good governance of the NRC.
Compliance with the corporate
governance code
Kinepolis complies with the principles of the Belgian
Corporate Governance Code.

Dividend
Price development and volume
over the past five years
For the financial year 2009, taking into account a payout
ratio of 30% applied on the current profit as of this year,
the proposal is to declare a gross dividend of € 0.92/share.
This pay-out ratio of 30% will thus have been maintained
for the 6th consecutive year. The Board of Directors has
set the date for dividend payment at 2 June 2010, subject
to approval by the General Meeting, on 21 May 2010, at a
financial institution of the shareholder’s choice by means of
submission of coupon no. 10.
Liquidity Agreement
In order to support the liquidity of the Kinepolis share,
the Group has underwritten a liquidity agreement (1) with
two liquidity providers, Bank Degroof nv and Petercam nv,
which covered the whole year 2009 and continue to be
applied.

permanent increased attention from private and professional investors in its home market and abroad. In recent
years, this has led to increased press coverage and liquidity
of the share.

1. Significant accounting policies
Kinepolis Group nv (the ‘Company’) is a company
established in Belgium. The consolidated financial
statements of the company for the year ending on 31
December 2009 include the company and its subsidiaries (together the ‘Group’) and the Group’s interest
in equity accounted investees. These consolidated
financial statements were approved by the Board of
Directors for publication on 31 March 2010.
Statement of compliance
The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the International Reporting
Standards (IFRS ) as published by the International
Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and adopted by the
European Union on 31 December 2009. The Company
has not applied any European exceptions to IFRS,
which means that the financial statements comply in
full with the IFRS standards.
Basis of preparation
The consolidated financial statements are presented
in euros, rounded to the nearest thousand. They are
drawn up on a historical cost basis, with the exception
of the following assets and liabilities which are
recorded at fair value: derivative financial instruments
and financial assets available for sale.
Non-current assets held for sale are valued, in accordance with IFRS 5, at the lower of carrying value and
fair value less costs to sell. Hedged assets and liabilities
included in the balance sheet are valued at fair value
in the amount of the hedged risk.
The accounting policies have been applied
consistently across the Group and are consistent with
those applied in the previous financial year, with the
exception of the following new or revised standards
and interpretations, which became effective after
31 December 2008 and have an impact on these
consolidated financial statements.
The revised standard IAS 1 Presentation of Financial
Statements (2007) became effective on 1 January 2009.
As a consequence, all changes in equity relating to
shareholders in their capacity as shareholder are
presented in the consolidated statement of changes
in equity. All changes in equity not relating to shareholders in their capacity as shareholder are recognised
in the consolidated statement of comprehensive
income. The comparative information in these
financial statements is adjusted to comply with the
revised standard.
IFRS 8 Operating Segments replaces IAS 14 Segment
Reporting and is applicable since 2009. The application
of IFRS 8 has no impact on the segment presentation
of the Group or on the comparative figures for 2008.
Kinepolis is organised on a geographical basis. The
various countries constitute the operating segments.
The operating segments are reported in such a way
that they are compatible with the internal reporting to
the CEOs and CFO, who are the highest placed officers
of the Group and take the main operating decisions
(note 3).
Financial report annual report 2009 69
The presentation of the statement of cash flows was
changed compared with the previous year. Paid and
received interest are presented as cash flows from
financing activities as from 2009. The changes in working capital are split between the change in inventory,
trade receivables and payables and the change in
other receivables and payables. The discount of the
long-term receivables is also shown on a separate line.
The comparative figures for 2008 have been adjusted.
The preparation of the financial statements under IFRS
requires management to make judgments, estimates
and assumptions that influence the application of
the policies and the reported amounts of assets and
liabilities, income and expenses. The estimates and
related assumptions are based on past experience and
on various other factors that are considered reasonable
in the given circumstances. The outcomes of these
form the basis for the judgment as to the carrying
value of assets and liabilities where this is not evident
from other sources. Actual results can differ from these
estimates. The estimates and underlying assumptions
are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Revisions of
estimates are recognized in the period in which the
estimate is revised, when the revision affects only this
period, or in the revision period and future periods,
where the revision affects both the reporting period
and future periods.
Basis of consolidation
Subsidiaries
Subsidiaries are those entities over which the Company
exercises control. Control is understood as meaning
70 kinepolis group
that the Company can, directly or indirectly, determine
an entities’ financial and operating policy. In determining
whether a situation of control exists, potential voting rights
that can be exercised at the time are taken into account.
The financial statements of subsidiaries are recognized in
the consolidated financial statements from the date that
control commences until the date that control ceases.
Equity accounted investees
Equity accounted investees are entities over which the
Group exercises significant influence, but not control, over
the financial and operational policies. Significant influence
is deemed to exist where the Group holds between 20
and 50 per cent of the voting rights of another entity. The
consolidated financial statements include the Group’s share
in the income and expenses of the participating interest,
which is recorded following the equity method, from the
starting to the ending date of this significant influence.
Whenever the Group’s share in the losses exceeds the
carrying value of the investments in equity accounted
investees, the carrying value is reduced to zero and future
losses are no longer recognized, except to the extent that
the Group has an obligation on behalf of the investee.
Transactions eliminated on consolidation
Intra-group balances and transactions, along with any unrealized gains and losses on transactions within the Group
or gains or losses from such transactions, are eliminated
in the consolidated financial statements. Unrealized gains
arising from transactions with equity accounted investees
are eliminated proportionally to the Group’s interest in the
investee. Unrealized losses are eliminated in the same way
as unrealized gains, but only where there is no indication of
impairment.
Foreign currency
Transactions in foreign currencies
Transactions in foreign currencies are converted
into euro at the exchange rate on transaction date.
Monetary assets and liabilities expressed on the
balance sheet date in foreign currencies are converted
into euro at the exchange rate at the balance sheet
date. Exchange rate differences occurring in the
translation are immediately recognized in the income
statement. Non-monetary assets and liabilities
expressed in foreign currency are converted at the
exchange rate at the transaction date. Non-monetary
assets and liabilities in foreign currencies which are
recognized at fair value are converted into euro at the
exchange rates at the date on which the fair value was
determined.
Financial statements of foreign operations
Assets and liabilities relating to foreign operations,
including goodwill and fair value adjustments on
acquisition, are converted into euro at the exchange
rate at balance sheet date. Income and costs of foreign
entities are converted into euro at exchange rates
approaching the exchange rates prevailing on the
transaction dates.
The exchange rate differences arising from the translation are recognized immediately in equity.
Financial instruments
All financial instruments are recorded on the transaction date.
Derivative financial instruments
The Group uses derivative financial instruments to
manage the exchange rate and interest risks deriving
from operational, financial and investment activities.
Under its treasury management policy the Group
does not use derivative financial instruments for
trading purposes. Derivative financial instruments
that do not meet the requirements of hedge accounting are, however, accounted for in the same way as
derivates held for trading purposes.
Derivative financial instruments are initially valued at
fair price. Attributable transaction costs are expensed
as incurred. Subsequent to initial recognition these
instruments are measured at fair value. The accounting treatment of changes therein is as described
below.
The fair value of derivative financial instruments is
the estimated amount that the Group will obtain or
pay at balance sheet date at the end of the contract
in question, with reference to present interest and
exchange rates and the creditworthiness of the
counterparty.
Hedging
Cash flow hedges
Whenever derivative financial instruments serve to
hedge the variability in cash flows of a liability or
a highly probable future transaction, the effective
portion of the changes in fair value of these derivatives is recorded directly in equity. When the future
Financial report annual report 2009 71
transaction results in the recording of a non-financial
asset, the cumulative profits or losses are removed from
equity and transferred to the carrying amount of the
asset. In the other case the cumulative profits or losses
are removed from equity to the income statement at the
same time as the hedged transaction. The non-effective
portion is included immediately in the income statement.
Profits or losses deriving from changes in the time value
of derivatives are not taken into consideration in determining the effectiveness of the hedging transaction and are
recognized immediately in the income statement.
Whenever a hedging instrument or hedge relationship
is ended, but the hedged transaction still has not taken
place, the cumulative gains or loss remains in equity and
will be recognized in accordance with the above policies
once the transaction takes place. When the covered
transaction is not longer probable, the cumulative gains
or loss included in equity is immediately taken into the
income statement.
Fair value hedges
Hedge accounting is not applied to derivative instruments
which are used for fair value hedging of foreign currency
denominated monetary assets and liabilities. Changes in
the fair value of such derivatives are recognized in profit or
loss as a part of the currency translation gains and losses.
Non-derivative financial instruments
Non-derivative financial instruments comprise
investments in equity and debt securities, trade and
other receivables, cash and cash equivalents, loans and
borrowings, trade and other payables.
72 kinepolis group
Non-derivative financial instruments are initially recognized at fair value plus, for instruments not at fair value
through profit or loss, any directly attributable transaction
costs. After initial recognition, non-derivative financial
instruments are valued as described below.
Cash and cash equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents are the cash on hand and
all call deposits. Bank overdrafts that are repayable on
demand, which are an integral part of the Group’s cash
management are viewed as a part of cash and cash
equivalents in the presentation of the cash flow table.
Financial assets available for sale –
Investments in equity securities
Investments in equity securities consist of participating
interests in enterprises in which the Group has no control
or no significant influence.
In those cases in which the Group has directly or indirectly
more than 20% of the votes and/or exercises significant
influence on the financial and operating policy, the
participating interests are viewed as equity accounted
investees. Participating interests in equity accounted
investees are recorded by the equity method, except
when classified as financial assets held for sale in accordance with IFRS 5 (Non-current assets held for sale and
discontinued operations). When there is reason to apply
an impairment, the accounting policy for impairments is
applied.
Other investments in equity securities are classified as
financial assets available for sale and recorded at fair
value on initial recognition, except for equity securities
not listed on an active market and for which the fair value
cannot reliably be determined. Participating interests not
eligible for valuation at fair value are recorded at historical
cost. Profits and losses from the change in fair value of a
participating interest classified as a financial asset available
for sale and which is not hedged are taken directly into
equity. Where the investment is sold, received or otherwise
transferred, or when the carrying value of the investment
is impaired, the accumulated profit or loss previously
included in equity is transferred to profit or loss.
The fair value of financial assets available for sale is their
listed bid price on the balance sheet date.
Other non-derivative financial instruments
Other non-derivative financial instruments are measured
at amortized cost price using the effective interest rate
method less any impairment losses.
Property, plant and equipment
Owned assets
Items of property, plant and equipment are measured at
cost less accumulated depreciation and impairments (see
below). The cost of self-constructed assets includes the
cost price of the materials, direct personnel expenses and a
proportionate share of the production overhead, any costs
of dismantling and removal of the asset and the costs of
restoring the location where the asset is located. Where
parts of an item of property, plant and equipment have
different useful lives, these are accounted for as separate
plant, property and equipment items.
Gains and losses on the sale of property, plant and equipment are determined by comparing the sales proceeds
with the carrying value of the assets and are recognized
within ‘other operating income’ in the income statement.
Leased assets
Lease agreements that transfer to the Group nearly all the
risks and rewards attached to the ownership of an asset
are viewed as finance leases. Buildings and equipment
acquired under finance leases are recorded at the lower of
the fair value or the present value of the minimum lease
payments at the beginning of the lease agreement, less
cumulative depreciation and impairments.
Subsequent costs
The cost price of replacing part of a property, plant and
equipment is included in the carrying value of the asset
whenever it is probable that the future economic benefits
relating to the assets will flow to the Group and the cost
price of the assets can be measured reliably. The cost of
daily maintenance of property, plant and equipment is
recognized as an expense in profit or loss as and when
incurred.
Depreciation and amortization
Depreciation is charged to the income statement using the
straight-line method over the expected useful life of the
asset, or of the separately recorded major components of
an asset. The residual value, useful lives and depreciation
methods are reviewed annually. Land is not depreciated.
The estimated useful lives are:
- buildings 30 years
- fixtures 5 – 15 years
- computers 3 years
- machinery and equipment 5 – 10 years
- furniture and vehicles 3 – 10 years.
Financial report annual report 2009 73
Investment property
Investment property is property that is held in order
to earn rental income or for capital appreciation or
both, but is not intended for sale in the context of
usual business operations, for use in the production or
delivery of goods or for administrative purposes.
Investment property is measured at cost, less cumulative depreciation and impairments. The accounting
policies given under ‘Property, plant and equipment’
apply.
Rental income from investment property is accounted
for as described below in the accounting policy for
the ‘Revenue and other income’.
Intangible assets
Goodwill
Goodwill from an acquisition is the positive difference
between the purchase price and the Group’s share
in the fair value of the acquired identifiable net
assets. Goodwill is valued at cost less impairment
losses. In respect of equity accounted investees the
carrying value of the investment in the enterprise also
includes the carrying value of the goodwill. Goodwill
is not amortized. Instead, it is subject to an annual
impairment test.
Negative goodwill
Negative goodwill from an acquisition is the negative
difference between the Group’s share in the fair
value of the acquired net identifiable assets and
74 kinepolis group
the purchase price. Negative goodwill is immediately
charged to the income statement.
Acquisitions of non-controlling interests
When a non-controlling interest is acquired in a
subsidiary, the goodwill corresponds to the difference
between the cost price of the additional investment and
the carrying value of the net assets that are acquired on
the date of exchange.
Other intangible assets
Other intangible assets acquired by the Group are
valued at cost less accumulated amortization and
impairment losses (see below). Costs of internally
generated goodwill and brands are recognized in profit
or loss as incurred.
Internally developed software
Internally developed software is capitalized whenever
the development costs can be reliably determined,
the product or process is technically and commercially
feasible, the future economic benefits are probable, and
the Group intends and has sufficient resources in order
to complete the development and to actively use or sell
it. The cost of internally developed software includes all
costs directly attributable to the asset.
Other development costs are expensed to the income
statement as and when incurred.
Subsequent expenditure
Subsequent expenditure in respect of intangible assets
is capitalized only when it increases the future economic
benefits specific to the related asset. All other expenditure is expensed as incurred.
Amortization
Amortization is charged to the income statement
by the straight-line method over the expected
useful life of the intangible asset. Intangible assets
are amortized from the date they are ready for use.
Their estimated useful life is 3 to 10 years.
Inventories
Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or net
realizable value. The net realizable value is equal to
the estimated sale price in the ordinary course of
the business, less the estimated costs of completion
and selling expenses.
The cost price of inventories includes the costs
incurred in acquiring the inventories and bringing
them to their current location and condition.
Inventories are measured using the FIFO method
Impairments
The carrying values of the Group’s assets, other than
inventories and deferred tax assets are reviewed
at each balance sheet date to determine whether
there is any indication of impairment. Where there
is indication of impairment, the recoverable amount
of the asset is estimated. In the case of goodwill
and intangible assets with an undetermined
useful life or which are not yet available for use,
the recoverable amount is estimated at every
balance sheet date. An impairment loss is recorded
whenever the carrying value of an asset, or the cash
flow generating unit to which the asset belongs, is
higher than the recoverable amount. Impairment
losses recorded in respect of cash flow generating
units are first deducted from the carrying value
of any goodwill assigned to cash flow generating
units (or groups of units) and then proportionally
from the carrying value of the assets of the unit
(or group of units). Impairment losses are charged
to the income statement. A cumulative loss on
a financial asset available for sale previously
recognized in equity is transferred to the income
statement.
Calculation of the recoverable amount
Individually significant financial assets are tested
individually for impairment. The remaining financial assets are divided into groups having similar
credit risk features and are assessed collectively.
The recoverable amount of the Group’s financial
assets measured at amortized cost is calculated as
the present value of expected future cash flows at
the interest rate inherent to these assets. Current
receivables are not discounted. The recoverable
value of other assets is the greater of the sales
price less selling expenses and the value in use.
To assess the value in use, the expected future
cash flows are discounted to their present value,
using a weighted average cost of the asset that
reflects both the current market rate and the risks
specific to that asset. Where an asset does not
itself generate significant cash flows, the recoverable value is determined based on the cash flow
generating unit to which the asset belongs.

Reversal of impairments
An impairment is reversed when the reversal can be
objectively connected with an event occurring after
the impairment was recorded. A previously recorded
impairment is reversed where a change has occurred in
the estimates used in determining the realizable value,
but not in a higher amount than the net carrying value
that would have been determined if no impairment had
been recorded in previous years.
Goodwill impairments are not reversed.
In the case of financial assets that are measured at
amortized cost and financial assets available for sale in
the form of bonds, the reversal is against the income
statement. In the case of available-for-sale financial
assets that are equity securities, the reversal is taken
directly to equity.
Assets classified as held for sale
Non-current assets (or groups of assets and liabilities
being disposed of), that are expected to be recovered
mainly via a sales transaction and not through the
continuing use thereof, are classified as “held for sale”.
Directly prior to this classification the assets (or the
components of a group of assets being disposed of) are
remeasured in accordance with the Group’s financial
accounting policies. Hereafter the assets (or a group of
assets to be disposed of) are measured on the basis of
their carrying value or, if lower, fair value less cost to sell.
Any impairment loss on a disposal group is allocated in
the first place against goodwill and then, proportionally,
against the remaining assets and liabilities, except that
76 kinepolis group
no impairments are allocated against inventories, financial
assets, deferred tax assets, employee-benefit assets and
investment property, which will continue to be measured
in accordance with the Group’s accounting policies.
Impairment losses on initial classification and gains and
losses on subsequent measurement are recognized in
profit or loss. Gains are not recognized in excess of any
cumulative impairment loss.
Share capital
Ordinary shares
Ordinary shares are classified as equity. Additional costs
which are directly attributable to the issue of ordinary
shares and share options are deducted from equity, after
deducting any tax effects.
Repurchase of share capital
Where share capital classified as Equity is reacquired by
the Company, the amount paid, including directly attributed costs, is viewed as a change in equity. Purchase of
treasury shares are recognized as a deduction from equity.
Dividends
Dividends are recognized as amounts payable in the
period in which they are declared.
Employee benefits
Post employment benefits
Post employment benefits contain the pension plans.
The Group provides post-retirement remuneration for
the majority of its employees in the form of ‘defined
contribution’ pension plans via an independent
fund or pension schemes.
Defined contribution plans
The contribution paid for defined contribution plans
is immediately recognized in the income statement.
Share based payments and related benefits
The warrant plan enables Group employees to
acquire shares of the Company. The warrant exercise
price is equal to the market price of the underlying
shares on the date of offer and no compensation
cost or liability is recorded.
Share transactions with employees are charged
to the income statement over the vesting period
based on the fair value on the date of offering with
a corresponding increase in equity. The fair value is
determined using an option price definition model.
Restructuring
A provision for restructuring is set up whenever the
Group has approved a detailed, formal restructuring plan
and the restructuring has either been commenced or
publicly announced. No provisions are taken for future
operating costs.
Site restoration
In accordance with the Group’s contractual obligations
a provision for site restoration is set up whenever the
Group is obliged to restore land to its original condition.
Onerous contracts
A provision for onerous contracts is set up whenever the
economic benefits expected from a contract are lower
than the unavoidable costs of meeting the contract
obligations.
Revenue and other income
Provisions
A provision is recorded in the balance sheet
whenever the Group has an existing obligation
(legal or constructive) as a result of a past event
and where it is probable that the settlement
of this obligation will result in an outflow from
the company of resources containing economic
benefits. Where the effect is material, provisions are
measured by discounting the expected future cash
flows at a pre-tax discount rate that reflects both
the current market assessment of the time value of
money and, where applicable, the risks inherent to
the obligation.
Sales of goods and services
On the sale of goods the income is recognized in the
income statement upon transfer to the purchaser of the
essential risks and rewards. Where services are provided
the income is recognized in the income statement upon
delivery of this service. Income is not recorded where
significant uncertainty exists as to the collection of the
receivable, related costs and the possible return of the
goods.
Rental income
Rental income is taken into income on a straight-line
basis over the rental period. Lease incentives granted are
regarded as an integral part of rental income.
Financial report annual report 2009 77
Government grants
Government grants are initially regarded as accrued
income in the balance sheet whenever reasonable
certainty exists that they will be received and that
the Group will fulfil the associated conditions. Grants
that compensate incurred costs are systematically
taken into profit in the same period as the costs are
incurred. Grants that compensate costs incurred
in respect of assets are systematically taken into
income over the useful life of the assets.
Expenses
Rental income is taken into profit or loss pro rata
temporis. Dividend income is included in the income
statement on the date that the dividend is declared.
The rent component of payments on finance leases is
taken into profit or loss.
Finance expenses directly attributable to the
acquisition or construction of a qualifying asset are
capitalized as part of the cost of that asset.
Income taxes
Payments relating to operating lease agreements
Payments relating to operating lease agreements are
taken into profit or loss on a straight-line basis over
the lease period.
Income tax expenses consist of current and deferred
tax. Taxes are recorded in profit or loss except where
they relate to elements recorded directly in equity.
In this case the taxes are recognized directly in equity.
Payments relating to finance lease agreements
The minimum lease payments are recorded partly
as finance expenses and partly as repayment of the
outstanding liability. Finance expenses are allocated
to each period of the total lease period in such a way
as to give a constant periodical interest rate over the
remaining balance of the liability.
Current income taxes consist of the expected tax
payable on the taxable profit of the year, calculated
according to the tax rates in effect at the balance
sheet date, as well as tax adjustments in respect of
prior years.
Finance income and expenses
Finance income and expenses consist of interest
payable on loans and borrowings, interest income
on funds invested, dividends, foreign exchange
gains and losses and changes in fair value on
hedging instruments recognized in profit or loss.
Exchange rate gains and losses are compensated per
currency.
78 kinepolis group
Deferred taxes are recorded based on the balance
sheet method, for all temporary differences between
the taxable base and the carrying value for financial
reporting purposes, for both assets and liabilities. No
deferred taxes are recorded for the following temporary differences: non-tax deductible goodwill, initial
recording of assets and liabilities that do not affect
the accounting or taxable profits and differences
relating to investments in subsidiaries to the extent
that an offsetting entry is unlikely in the near future.
The amount of the deferred tax is based on expectations
as to the realization of the carrying value of the assets
and liabilities, using the tax rates in effect or those of
which the enactment has been substantively completed
at balance sheet date.
A deferred tax asset is recorded in the balance sheet
only when it is probable that adequate future taxable
profits are available against which temporary differences
can be utilized. Deferred tax assets are reduced whenever it is no longer probable that the related tax benefit
will be realized.
Additional income tax resulting from the declaring of
dividends is recorded simultaneously with the liability to
pay the dividend in question.
Segment information
An operating segment is a clearly distinguishable component of the Group that engages in business activities
from which it may earn revenues and incur expenses,
including revenues and expenses in relation to
transactions with any of the Group’s other components.
The Group is organised geographically. The different
countries constitute operating segments, in accordance
with the internal reporting to the CEOs of the Group.
Discontinued operations
Classification as discontinued operations occurs upon
the earlier of disposal or when the business activity
fulfils the criteria for classification as held for sale.
Subsequently non-current assets and disposal groups,
when first recorded as held for sale, are measured at
the lower of carrying value and fair value less cost to
sell. Whenever an activity is classified as a discontinued
operation, the comparative income statement figures are
restated as if the activity had been discontinued from the
start of the comparative period.
Capital management
Board policy is aimed at maintaining a strong capital
position in order to retain the confidence of investors,
lenders and markets and to safeguard the future
development of the business activities. The Board of
Directors monitors the return on equity, which is defined
by the Group as the net operating result divided by
equity, excluding non-controlling interests. The Board of
Directors also monitors the level of the dividend payable
to ordinary shareholders.
The Board seeks a conservative balance between the
higher return that is potentially available with a higher
level of borrowing, and the benefits and security of a
solid equity position. In seeking this balance, the Board of
Directors’ objective is to not exceed a pre-defined ratio of
debt to EBITDA.
Own shares are purchased by means of a share buy-in
programme through a financial institution operating
under a discretionary mandate. These shares are intended
for issuing shares under the Group’s share option scheme.
Buy and sell decisions are taken on an individual basis
by the Board of Directors, as the Group does not have a
defined share buy-back plan.
Financial report annual report 2009 79
No changes were made in the past year to the Group’s
capital management approach.
New standards and interpretations not yet
adopted
A number of new standards, amendments and interpretations were not yet effective in 2009 and are therefore
not applied to the present consolidated financial
statements.
The revised IFRS 3 Business Combinations (2008)
includes the following changes that are probably
relevant for the Group’s activities:
- the definition of a business has been broadened,
which is likely to result in more acquisitions being
treated as business combinations;
- contingent consideration will be measured at
fair value, with subsequent changes therein
recognised in profit or loss;
- transaction costs, other than share and debt issue
costs, will be expensed as incurred;
- any pre-existing interest in the acquiree will
be measured at fair value with the gain or loss
recognised in profit or loss;
- any non-controlling interest will be measured at
either fair value, or at its proportionate interest
in the identifiable assets and liabilities of the
acquiree, on a transaction-by-transaction basis.
The revised version of IFRS 3, which must be applied
to the Group’s 2010 consolidated financial statements,
is prospectively applied and accordingly has no
impact on preceding periods in the consolidated
financial statements 2010.
80 kinepolis group
The revised IAS 27 Consolidated and Separate Financial
Statements (2008) states that changes in the Group’s
controlling interest in a subsidiary, when control is
retained, are recognized as an equity transaction.
If the Group no longer has control of a subsidiary,
any remaining interest in the former subsidiary is
measured at fair value and the resulting profit or loss
is included in the income statement. The changes
to IAS 27, which must be applied to the Group’s 2010
consolidated financial statements, are not expected
to have any impact on the consolidated financial
statements.
IFRIC 17 Distributions of Non-cash Assets to Owners
deals with the recognition of distributions on kind to
shareholders. Distributions of assets that are ultimately
controlled by the same party or parties before and
after distribution (common control transactions)
are outside the scope of IFRIC 17. A liability must be
recognized if the dividend payment is authorized
and is no longer at the discretion of the company, to
be measured at the fair value of the non-cash assets
to be distributed. IFRIC 17, which must be applied to
the Group’s 2010 consolidated financial statements,
with prospective application, is expected to have no
impact on the consolidated financial statements.
IFRIC 18 Transfers of Assets from Customers deals with
the recognition by access providers of property, plant
and equipment contributed to them by customers.
Recognition of the assets depends on who has control
of the asset. If an asset is recognized by an access provider, initial recognition must be at fair value. The time
at which the related revenue is recognized depends
on the facts and the circumstances. IFRIC 18, which
must be applied to the Group’s 2010 consolidated
financial statements, with prospective application,
is expected to have no impact on the consolidated
financial statements.
The amended IAS 39 Financial Instruments: Recognition
and Measurement – eligible hedged items provides
additional guidance concerning specific positions
that qualify for hedging (‘eligible hedged items’). The
amendment, which must be applied to the Group’s
2010 consolidated financial statements, with retroactive application, is expected to have limited impact on
the consolidated financial statements.
The revised IAS 32 Financial Instruments: Presentation
and Classification of Rights Issues, Options or Warrants
allows the classification of these rights, options or
warrants to acquire a fixed number of the entity’s own
equity instruments for a fixed amount of any currency
to be classified as equity instruments provided the
entity offers the rights, options or warrants pro rata
to all of its existing owners of the same class of its
own non-derivative equity instruments. This revision,
which must be applied for the consolidated financial
statements of the Group for 2010, is not expected
to have any impact on the consolidated financial
statements .
and the characteristics of the contractual cash flows of
the financial asset. IFRS 9 must be applied retroactively
to the consolidated financial statements of the Group for
2013. The consequences of this standard for the Group
are currently being assessed.
Improvements to IFRS (2009) is a collection of minor
improvements to existing standards. This collection,
which must be applied to the Group’s 2010 consolidated
financial statements, is expected to have limited impact
on the consolidated financial statements.
The Group has not yet early adopted the following new
standards, changes to existing standards and interpretations, because they would not have any impact on the consolidated financial statements of the Group: amendments
to IFRS 1, amendments to IFRS 2, amendments to IAS 24,
IFRIC 19, amendments to IFRIC 14 and IAS 19.
IFRS 9 Financial Instruments is the first standard issued
as part of a wider project to replace IAS 39 Financial
Instruments. The new standard retains but simplifies
the mixed measurement model and establishes
two primary measurement categories for financial
assets: amortised cost and fair value. The basis of
classification depends on the entity’s business model
Financial report annual report 2009 81
2. Segment reporting
Segment information is given for the Group’s geographic
segments. The geographic segments reflect the countries
in which the Group operates. Prices for inter-segment
transactions are determined at arm’s length.
Segment results, assets and liabilities of a particular
segment include those items that can be attributed, either
directly or reasonably, to that segment.
Financial income and cost, income tax expense and their
related assets and liabilities are not monitored by segment
by the Group’s CEOs and CFO.
The capital expenditures of a segment are all costs incurred
during the reporting period to acquire assets that are
expected to remain in use in the segment for longer than
one reporting period.
Geographic segments
The Group’s activities are managed and followed up on a
country-by-country basis. The main geographic markets are
Belgium, France and Spain. The Polish and Swiss activities
are combined in the ‘other’ geographic segment.
In presenting information on the basis of geographic
segments, revenue from the segment is based on the
geographic location of the customers. The basis used for
the assets of the segments is the geographic location of the
assets.

the tax-free profit on the sale of CinemaxX AG had a positive
impact on the tax rate. Otherwise, the tax rate would have
been 28.32%. The notional interest deduction and the tax treatment of tax shelters, both included in ‘Tax-exempt income’, had
a positive impact on the tax burden in both 2008 and 2009.
The decision was taken not to set up any deferred tax receivable (€ 1. 3 million).
For a number of Group companies, the business plans are not
yet sufficiently developed, making any decision on whether
realised losses can be recovered within five years premature.

BALANCE AT END OF CURRENT PERIOD
92 kinepolis group
This heading contains the differences expressed at the time
of the first consolidation as at 1 January 1996, and those
arising from the acquisition of participating interests in
subsequent periods.
Goodwill was subjected in 2009 to impairment tests at
country level, the operating segments of the Group, as
opposed to 2008 when the cash flow-generating units
were defined at cinema level. The decision to reassess the
definition of cash flow-generating unit was taken by the new
management, CFO and the reinforced Board of Directors.
The CEOs, CFO and Country Managers manage the Group
primarily at country level. Turnover is managed much more
at Group level and there is greater insight into how different
multiplexes interact:
Movie programming and negotiations with distributors
occur at country level.
A larger part of ticket sales goes through the websites,
which are organised at country level.
Pricing for tickets, refreshments and snacks is set at
country level.
Marketing contributions by distributors are negotiated at
country level.
Screen advertising is managed at country level.
The sale of vouchers goes through the business-to-business
sales teams. The use of the vouchers by the customers runs
through the central back office systems at country level.
Business-to-business events are organised at multiplex and
at country level.
This shows that the incoming cash flows are mainly generated
at country level.
In the impairment test the realizable value or the discounted
cash flow (whichever is greater) was taken into consideration.
The realizable value is based on the valuation made by an
external expert. The discounted cash flows are calculated
over the period 2010-2029. These are based on the 2010-2014
business plan approved by the Board of Directors. For the
years 2015-2029 the business plan was extrapolated based on
consumer indexes (1%) and on key performance indicators
which are inherent to the business plan. The projections were
performed in the cinemas’ functional currency and discounted
at the weighted average cost of the cinema’s capital. This
weighted average cost varied between 6.75% and 7.90% (2008:
between 6.40% and 9.00%). The weighted average cost of
equity before tax varies between 7.90% and 8.16%. These tests
did not lead to the recording of an impairment loss against
goodwill.
The following table shows the goodwill per cash flow generating unit:

Financial report annual report 2009 95
Since 18 January 2007 the land, buildings and equipment at Poznan
(Poland) are no longer used for Kinepolis’ own operations, but have
been leased out to Cinema City, owned by the cinema group ITIT.
In 2009 part of the land in Poznan (Poland) was transferred to ‘assets
classified as held for sale’, because this land will most likely be sold
within the year (€ 1.1 million).
As required by IAS 40 (investment property), the assets in question
have been reclassified under this heading.
The rental income from investment property amounts to € 1.6 million (2008: € 1.5 million). The direct operating charges (including
repairs and maintenance) ensuing from investment property
amounted to € 0.5 million (2008: 0.4 million).
In 2008, ‘Transfer to other categories’ comprised a part of the land in
Poznan (Poland) that was previously recognized under ‘assets classified
as held for sale’ (€ 2.0 million) . There was no longer any expectation of
this land being sold within the year. In accordance with IAS 40, this land
is being held to realise a profit in the long term.
The fair value of the investment property as recently determined
by an independent expert amounts to € 18.1 million
(2008: € 18.0 million).

Temporary differences for which no deferred tax assets
are recognized
No deferred tax asset is recognized in the balance sheet in respect of tax losses carried forward and temporary differences that
would result in a deferred tax asset in an amount of € 36.3 million
(2008: € 38.9 million) given it is not probable that future taxable
profit will be available against which the group can utilize the
benefits of that.
The tax losses carried forward can be carried forward to an
unlimited degree for Belgium, France and the Netherlands. In
Poland and Switzerland the losses can be carried forward for
5 and 7 years.
Temporary differences for which no deferred tax liabilities
are recognized
There is no Group policy with respect to the payment of
dividends by subsidiaries to the parent company. If an active
dividend policy were to exist for all subsidiaries, this would
require an additional deferred tax liability of € 2.5 million
(2008: € 1.0 million).

Reinstatement of land
The Brussels cinema complex’s lease on the land owned by the
City of Brussels ends in 2025. The Company has a contractual
obligation to restore the land to its original state. At 31 December
2009 the balance sheet included a provision of € 0.9 million for the
demolition of the building and to restore the land to its original
state (2008: 0.9 million).
Transformation
The Group set up a provision for the transformation of the
organisation in the amount of € 0.8 million.

25.Financial instruments
Financial risk management
The Group’s principal financial instruments are bank loans,
finance leases and cash.
The Group has various other financial instruments such as
trade debtors and creditors, which arise directly from its
operations.
The Group also enters into derivative transactions, principally FRAs, interest rate swaps and cross currency interest
rate swaps. The purpose is to manage the interest rate and
currency risks arising from the Group’s activities and its
sources of financing.
It is Group policy not to undertake any trading positions in
derivative financial instruments.
The main risks arising from the Group’s financial instruments are interest rate risk, liquidity risk, foreign currency
risk and credit risk. It is Group policy to negotiate the terms
of the hedge derivatives to match the terms of the hedged
item so as to maximize hedge effectiveness.
The Board of Directors investigates and approves policies
for managing each of these risks. These policies are summarized below. The Group’s accounting policies in relation
to derivatives are set out in the accounting policies.
Interest rate risk
The Group’s exposure to market risk for changes in interest
rates primarily relates to the Group’s short and long-term
loans and borrowings.
106 kinepolis group
Group policy is to manage interest rate costs with a
mixture of fixed and variable interest rate liabilities. To
manage this mix in a cost-efficient manner, the Group
enters into:
a) interest rate swaps and FRAs in which the Group
agrees to exchange, at specified intervals, the difference
between fixed and variable interest amounts calculated
by reference to a pre-agreed principal amount.
b) interest rate derivatives with fixed ceilings, hence
limiting the impact of interest rate movements whilst
leaving the opportunity to benefit from low short term
floating interest rates.
At balance sheet date the Group had interest rate swaps
outstanding, on which the Group receives a variable interest rate equal to EURIBOR, and on which it pays a fixed
interest rate. These swaps are used to cover the variability
in the cash flows of the underlying loans.
In accordance with the IAS 39 hedge accounting these
interest rate swaps are determined as cash flow hedges.
Therefore the effective portion of the change in fair value
of the interest rate swaps is recognized directly in equity.
The changes in fair value of the interest rate swaps recognized in equity give a loss of € 0.1 million at 31 December
2009 (2008: a loss of € 3.6 million).
Kinepolis pursues a conservative financial policy. To hedge
interest risk, since 2008 Kinepolis uses only derivative
financial instruments whose movements in fair values are
offset directly against equity and have no impact on the
income statement (hedge accounting).
All interest rate derivatives deemed to be freestanding were
ended in 2008. This generated a profit of € 0.1 million recognised
in the 2009 income statement (2008: € 0.2 million).
At 31 December 2009, after taking into account the effect of interest rate swaps, 96% of the Group’s borrowings were recognized
at a fixed interest rate (2008: 70% at fixed interest).
Interest risk sensitivity analysis
The interest-bearing loans amounted at balance sheet date to €
109.7 million (2008: € 146.5 million). All interest-bearing loans have
a variable interest rate, as was also the case in 2008.
The total interest charged to the income statement for 2009,
including the realised gains on derivative interest rate instruments, amounted to € 5.6 million (2008: € 8.0 million).
According to the company’s estimates the market interest
rate applicable to the variable interest rate can reasonably be
expected to change as follows:
Euribor 3 M

RATE

THEORETICAL
VOLATILITY
POSSIBLE INTEREST RATE
31/12/09 AS USED FOR THE
SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS
0.70%
20%
0.56% – 0.84%
Applying the possible increases/decreases in the market
interest rates as given above to our variable rate borrowings at 31 December 2009, and all other variables being
constant, the 2009 profit would be € 0.2 million lower/
higher (2008: € 0.8 million). We have estimated that this
effect would be partially neutralized by the € 0.1 million
higher or lower interest income from interest rate derivatives (2008: € 0.6 million).
Foreign currency risk
The Group has a foreign currency risk on positions
deriving from sales or purchases and from outstanding
borrowings by group companies in currencies other
than the functional currency (EUR) (transaction risk).
Group policy is focused on minimising the impact on
profit of exchange rate fluctuations. Derivative financial
instruments are used to immediately hedge any
transactional exchange rate risk upon identification.
Less than 1% of the Group’s sales and purchases are
denominated in currencies other than the functional
currency (2008: 1%).
Loans between Kinepolis Financial Services nv and
other group companies are expressed in the currency
of the latter. The loans in CHF and PLN from Kinepolis
Financial Services nv to Kinepolis Schweiz and Kinepolis
Poznan Sp.z.o.o are hedged with cross-currency
interest rate swaps. These instruments are viewed as
freestanding. The changes in the fair value of the CCIRSs
are therefore recognized in the income statement.
The total of the changes in the fair value of the CCIRS
resulted in a loss of € 0.1 million in 2009 (2008: a profit of
€ 1.5 million). The revaluation of the above mentioned
loans resulted in a profit of € 0.2 million in 2009 (2008: a
loss of € 1.5 million).
The Group also incurs a foreign currency risk from
consolidating foreign companies not having the EUR as
their functional currency (Switzerland and Poland). This
conversion risk is not hedged.
Financial report annual report 2009 107
At 31 December 2009, the Group had hedged 76% (2008: 82%)
of its foreign currency exposure for which fixed commitments
existed on the balance sheet date.
In the table below the foreign currency risks to which the Group
is exposed are given on the basis of the notional amounts.

A. Foreign currency translation risk
Only 2% of the income of Kinepolis is realized by subsidiaries
which undertake their activities in a currency other than the
euro. When the financial data of these entities is converted

a translation risk occurs. The currencies in which Kinepolis’s
subsidiaries operate are the Polish zloty and the Swiss franc.
Based on a theoretical volatility of these currencies against the
euro we have estimated the potential change in the exchange
rates of these currencies against the euro as follows:

1.1869 – 1.7803
1.2082 – 1.8122
B. Foreign currency transactional risk
Most of Kinepolis’s financial instruments are expressed in the
company’s operating currencies. Where this is not the case,
derivatives are used in order to cover the foreign currency risk.
For 2009 the transactional currency risk consists primarily of
loans in currencies (PLN and CHF) other than the company’s
operating currency. The currency risks on these loans are
covered by EUR variable / CHF variable and EUR variable /
PLN variable interest rate swaps (CCIRS) in a total amount of
€ 16.8 million with final maturities in 2012, 2014 and 2015.
If at the balance sheet date the Polish zloty and the Swiss
franc had weakened/strengthened as above, and all other
108 kinepolis group
variables being constant, the 2009 profit would have
been € 1.2 million higher (2008: € 0.9 million) or € 0.8 lower
(2008: € 0.6 million).
Credit risk
The credit risk with respect to trade receivables is the
risk of financial loss to the Group if a customer fails to
meet its contractual obligations. It is Group policy that all
customers who wish to trade on credit terms are subject
to credit verification procedures. In addition, receivable
balances are monitored on an ongoing basis. The Group
accounts for impairments provisions in the amount of the
estimated losses in relation to trade receivables. These are
specific provisions for individually significant positions.
With respect to the credit risk arising from the other
financial assets of the Group, including cash and cash
equivalents, available-for-sale financial assets and certain
derivative instruments, the Group’s exposure to credit
risk consists of the counterparty default risk, with a
maximum exposure equal to the carrying amount of these
instruments.
Except for Screenvision nv, for which a provision has been
set up, there are no significant concentrations of credit risk
within the Group.
The extent of the Group’s credit risk exposure is represented by
the aggregate balance of the financial assets. The maximum
nominal credit risk in the event that all parties were to fail to
meet their obligations amounted at 31 December 2009 to
€ 59.5 million (2008: € 61.7 million).
Liquidity risk
The Group seeks to maintain a balance between continuation in
funding and flexibility through the use of credit lines, bank loans
and finance leases. Group liquidity is managed through the
in-house bank, Kinepolis Financial Services.

Fair value
Fair value is the amount at which an asset can be traded or
a liability settled between well-informed, willing parties,
following the ‘arm’s length’ principle. The table below gives
the fair value and the carrying value of the main interestbearing financial loans and borrowings.
The fair value of interest rate derivative financial instruments
is determined by discounting the expected future cash
flows based on current market interest rates and the interest
rate curve for the remaining life of the investment. The fair
IN ’000 €
value of forward foreign exchange contracts is calculated
as the discounted value of the difference between the
contract value and current forward exchange rates.
The table below gives the nominal or contractual amounts
and the clean fair value of all outstanding derivative
financial instruments. The nominal or contractual amounts
reflect the volume of the derivative financial instruments
outstanding at balance sheet date. As such they do not in
any way represent the Group’s risk on these transactions.

Debt portfolio
Under the Syndicated Loan Agreement (€ 175 million) of
26 November 2004, amended on 13 July 2007, Kinepolis Group
granted pledge mandates on business assets and mortgage
mandates on property in the amount of the outstanding
financial debt. These mandates can be converted into actual
pledges only if Kinepolis Group fails to meet certain commitments under the Loan Agreement.
110 kinepolis group
The Term and Revolving Facilities Agreement contains
certain financial covenants, including a maximum leverage ratio, a minimum interest coverage and a minimum
solvency ratio, as well as a number of potentially restrictive undertakings limiting or preventing specific business
transactions. These covenants were attained in both 2008
and 2009.
In the autumn of 2009 a Commercial Paper programme was
issued with a maximum value of € 50 million for short-term
financing purposes. On 31 December 2009 the first tranche of
€ 9.5 million was taken up. The Syndicated Loan functions as
back-up financing. It is a flexible alternative to bank financing,
comparable with a short-term corporate bond. The interest

(GRUP) and an environmental impact report for the area in
question, after which a new planning permission can be
granted to regularise Kinepolis Oostende’s situation. The

30.Subsequent events
The Group has taken note of the planned development
and repurposing of the Heysel plateau by the municipality
of Brussels.
Kinepolis is deliberating the acquisition of Screenvision
Belgium. The acquisition conditions are still not met.
Kinepolis remains committed to keeping the Belgian
cinema advertising market united, and this in the interest
of all stakeholders.
On 1 October 2008 the Belgian Competition Authority
decided that its prior permission was no longer needed
for the expansion, renovation or replacement by
another multiplex of an existing Kinepolis multiplex. The
construction or acquisition of an additional multiplex (not
a replacement) would still have to be formally reported
until 1 October 2011. The Court of Appeal confirmed in
the ruling of 11 March 2010 the decision of the Belgian
Competition Authority, by annulling it and then arriving
at the same judgement as the Authority, except that
the conditions imposed on Kinepolis in 1997 will not
automatically expire on the end date (1 October 2011), but
rather will be automatically renewed unless a decision
to the contrary of the Belgian Competition Authority in
response to a request by Kinepolis.
On 1 January 2010 the Kinepolis pension fund was
converted into a group insurance.

Statutory auditors’ report to the general meeting of shareholders
of Kinepolis Group nv on the consolidated financial statements
for the year ended 31 December 2009
In accordance with legal and statutory requirements,
we report to you on the performance of our audit
mandate. This report includes our opinion on the
consolidated financial statements together with the
required additional comment and information.
Unqualified audit opinion on the consolidated
financial statements
We have audited the consolidated financial statements
of Kinepolis Group nv (“the Company”) and its subsidiaries (jointly “the Group”), prepared in accordance with
International Financial Reporting Standards, as adopted
by the European Union, and with the legal and
regulatory requirements applicable in Belgium. These
consolidated accounts comprise the consolidated
statement of financial position as of 31 December
2009 and the consolidated statements of income,
comprehensive income, changes in equity and cash
flows for the year then ended, as well as the summary
of significant accounting policies and the other explanatory notes. The total of the consolidated statement
of financial position amounts to € 343 537 (000) and the
consolidated income statement shows a profit for the
year of € 20 125 (000).
The Board of Directors of the Company is responsible
for the preparation of the consolidated financial
statements. This responsibility includes: designing,
implementing and maintaining internal control
relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of
118 kinepolis group
consolidated financial statements that are free from
material misstatement, whether due to fraud or
error; selecting and applying appropriate accounting
policies; and making accounting estimates that are
reasonable in the circumstances.
Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these
consolidated financial statements based on our
audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with
International Standards on Auditing, legal requirements and auditing standards applicable in Belgium,
as issued by the “Institut des Réviseurs d’Entreprises/
Instituut der Bedrijfsrevisoren”. Those standards
require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain
reasonable assurance whether the consolidated financial statements are free from material misstatement.
In accordance with these standards, we have
performed procedures to obtain audit evidence about
the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated
financial statements. The procedures selected depend
on our judgment, including the assessment of the
risks of material misstatement of the consolidated
financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In
making those risk assessments, we have considered
internal control relevant to the Company’s preparation
and fair presentation of the consolidated financial
statements in order to design audit procedures that
are appropriate in the circumstances but not for the
purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness
of the Group’s internal control. We have also evaluated
the appropriateness of the accounting policies used,
the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by
the Company and the presentation of the consolidated
financial statements, taken as a whole. Finally, we have
obtained from management and responsible officers of
the Company the explanations and information necessary for our audit. We believe that the audit evidence
we have obtained provides a reasonable basis for our
opinion.
In our opinion the consolidated financial statements
give a true and fair view of the Group’s net worth and
financial position as of 31 December 2009 and of its
results and cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards,
as adopted by the European Union, and with the legal
and regulatory requirements applicable in Belgium.
Additional comment
The preparation of the management report and its content
are the responsibility of the Board of Directors.
Our responsibility is to supplement our report with the
following additional comment, which does not modify our
audit opinion on the financial statements:
The management report on the consolidated financial
statements includes the information required by law and
is consistent with the consolidated financial statements.
We are, however, unable to comment on the description
of the principal risks and uncertainties which the Group
is facing, and on its financial situation, its foreseeable
evolution or the significant influence of certain facts on
its future development. We can nevertheless confirm
that the matters disclosed do not present any obvious
inconsistencies with the information that we became
aware of during the performance of our mandate.

Extract from the unconsolidated financial statements of Kinepolis Group nv,
drawn up under Belgian accounting principles
The following information is an extract from the unconsolidated financial statements of Kinepolis Group nv, drawn
up in accordance with Belgian accounting principles. These
unconsolidated financial statements, together with the
Board of Directors’ report to the General Shareholders’
Meeting and the Auditor’s report, will be filed with the
National Bank of Belgium within the legal deadline. It
should be noted that only the consolidated financial
statements as presented above give a true and fair view
of the financial position and performance of the Kinepolis
Group nv.
Given that Kinepolis Group nv is essentially a holding
company that accounts for its investments at cost in its
unconsolidated statements, these separate financial statements give only a limited view of the financial position of
Kinepolis Group nv. For these reasons the Board of Directors
has deemed it appropriate to present only a condensed
unconsolidated balance sheet and income statement,
prepared according to Belgian accounting principles for the
year ending on 31 December 2009.
120 kinepolis group
The statutory auditor’s report on these statements is
unqualified and confirms that the unconsolidated financial
statements of Kinepolis Group nv, prepared in accordance
with Belgian accounting principles for the year ending on
31 December 2009, give a true and fair view of the financial
position of Kinepolis Group nv in accordance with all legal
and regulatory provisions.
These unconsolidated financial statements of Kinepolis
Group nv can be obtained free of charge from the
website of Nationale Bank van België (NBB.be), in section
“Balanscentrale”, subsection “Jaarrekeningen opzoeken” or
from www.kinepolis.com. They can also be obtained free of
charge from the Kinepolis Investor Relations department.
