IN MEMORIAM
After a rich and full life as the co-founder of
Kinepolis Group, Albert Bert, the driving force
behind the renewal of cinema in Belgium, passed
away suddenly on 21 May 2002 at the age of 74.
In 1970 Albert Bert converted the Cinema Majestic
in Harelbeke, which he has taken over from his
father, into a two screen cinema, Belgium’s first
duplex.
One year later, together with his sister-in-law Rose
Claeys-Vereecke, he developed the first purposebuilt multiplex, the Trioscoop in Hasselt, followed in
1975 by the 5-screen Pentascoop in Kortrijk. The
‘multiplex’ concept took on its full meaning when
he built the 10-screen Decascoop in Ghent in 1981.
In the same year he founded Decatron NV to develop and build cinema complexes.
In 1988 the Bert and Claeys families decided to
combine forces to develop the world’s first
megaplex in Brussels, an initiative repeated in 1993
with the opening of Metropolis Antwerp.
Under Albert Bert’s inspiration the European
expansion programme was continued with the construction of Kinepolis complexes at Madrid,
Thionville, Mulhouse, Nîmes, Schaffhausen,
Pioltello, Valencia and Poznan (Poland).
Albert Bert was also:
■ Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors, Member
of the Remuneration Committee and Member
of the Audit Committee of Kinepolis Group NV
■ Chairman of the Board of Directors of France
Mega Cinema SA, Kinepolis – Le Château du
Cinéma SA, France Mega Cinema Immo SA
■ Chief Executive Officer of Majestiek
International SA
■ Director of Eden Panorama SA, Kinepolis
Thionville SA, Kinepolis Immo Thionville SA,
Kinepolis Saint-Julien-lès-Metz SA, Kinepolis
Mulhouse SA, European Mega Cinema SA,
Kinepolis Holding BV, Kinepolis Zeeland BV,
Kinepolis España SA
■ Honorary citizen of Harelbeke
Apart from this cooperation the Bert and Claeys
family companies developed a number of other
projects on their own. In 1995 the Bert family constructed the Kinepolis Saint-Julien-lès-Metz and in
1996 Kinepolis Le Château du Cinéma in Lomme
close to Lille.
On 19 December 1997 the Bert and Claeys families
merged their businesses to form Kinepolis Group
NV. In the same year Albert Bert’s entrepreneurship was honoured with three prestigious prizes:
Cinema Expo in Amsterdam proclaimed him “Best
Exhibitor of the Year”, Knack chose him as its
“Manager of the Year” and he received the “Insead
Innovator Prize” from the French business school
Insead.
On 9 April 1998 Kinepolis Group was listed on the
Brussels stock exchange (now Euronext).

LETTER
FROM THE BOARD TO
THE SHAREHOLDERS
Dear Shareholder, Client, Employee,
2002 was a year of debt reduction and break in the
investment programme of Kinepolis Group.
Debt reduction
In 2002 Kinepolis Group put its investment programme on hold and concentrated on reducing its
debt level. A number of assets were sold: a 5.3
hectare site in Warsaw, the cinema complex at
Pioltello (Italy) and the Dutch subsidiary Kinepolis
Zeeland, with its 35% minority interest in the
Vlissingen project, were all disposed of. These
divestments and the realised free cash flow served
to reduce debt by 22% to EUR 198 million. EUR 34
million of short-term debt was also converted into
long-term debt.
Visitor number and Net
Result
Kinepolis Group welcomed 27.3 million visitors in
2002, 5.1% more than in 2001. The largest part of
this growth comes from the Kinepolis complexes
which opened in 2001 in Valencia, Poznan, Pioltello
and Schaffhausen.
Despite the successful debt reduction and rising
visitor number, Kinepolis Group suffered in 2002 a
net consolidated loss (Group’s share) of EUR 5.7
million. This is due primarily to foreign exchange
losses and the cost of hedging the Polish zloty,
amounting together to EUR 3 million, start-up losses of new complexes, additional provisions and
higher taxes in Belgium and Spain.
Strategy
In 2002 Kinepolis took the decision to concentrate in
future primarily on its key markets of Belgium, France
and Spain, in which it currently operates some 20 cinema complexes.
In Belgium the group holds 50.8% of the Belgian
market, with 1/3 of all seating capacity and 1/4 of
screens. This strong position will be maintained.
With this in mind Kinepolis is planning to refurbish
one of its two cinemas in downtown Liège. Option
contracts have also been signed to acquire sites in
Bruges and Ostend for two multiplexes.
In order to construct these multiplexes, whilst
remaining within the provisions of competition law,
the group has sold Pentascoop at Kortrijk and is
planning to divest of one of its two cinemas in
downtown Liège. The seats available in this way
will then be allotted to these new projects.
In France and Spain, Kinepolis is looking to further expand its market position.
A 10-screen, 2970-seat complex is scheduled to
open at Nancy in 2004, and a new 15 screen, 4700seat complex will come into operation at Granada
at the end of 2003.
In the “other countries” Kinepolis has decided to
sell its interests in Italy and Switzerland. In Poland
and the Netherlands it is keeping all options open.
In terms of cinema operation, Kinepolis will in the
future concentrate on:
■ reviewing its pricing structure to increase visitor frequency and loyalty,
■ new partnerships with a further increase in
Food & Beverage income,
■ reviewing visitor flows and cinema concepts at
existing complexes to create additional space
for renting out,
■ further development of the entertainment and
fun shopping concept at the complexes,
■ putting the finishing touch to its ticketing system for Business to Business customers,
■ continuing to expand internet sales and sales
via the Kineticket automatic machines.

Outlook for 2003
In 2003 Kinepolis Group will do everything possible to continue the debt reduction programme and
in so doing improve the balance sheet structure.
Debt has already been reduced by EUR 9 million in
January 2003. It should, however, be stated here
that the opening of the new complex at Granada
(Spain) in late 2003 will increase debt by EUR 13
million.
With the recent sale of Kinepolis Pioltello (Italy)
and a number of other disposals, Kinepolis Group
expects lower visitor numbers and turnover in
2003, both though with a positive effect on net
result through lower depreciation and the further
debt reduction with divestments. Moreover
Kinepolis will continue its cost reduction programme. The group keeps on holding substantial
property assets (book value of EUR 260 million) in
its portfolio.
The group is determined to do everything possible
in 2003 to achieve the above objectives. In so
doing the company can count on the commitment
of all its employees.
In this perspective Kinepolis Group thanks all its
shareholders and employees for the confidence
they continue to show in the company and its activities.

In 2002 Kinepolis Group opened its doors

2001.
EBITDA rose by 2.8% to EUR 45.3
million.
RA Kine GB
28/05/03

Page 7
The net consolidated loss (group’s share) of EUR
5.7 million is due primarily to foreign exchange
losses and the costs of hedging the Polish zloty,
amounting in all to EUR 3 million, start-up losses at
new complexes, additional provisions and higher
taxes in Belgium and Spain.
EUR 57 million of debt was repaid, reducing the
debt burden by 22% to EUR 198 million in 2002. A
substantial portion of the short-term debt (EUR 34
million) was also converted to long-term debt. A
further EUR 9 million were repaid in early January
2003.
Visitor numbers rose by 5.1% in 2002.
• Most of this growth comes from Kinepolis complexes opened in 2001 at Valencia, Poznan,
Pioltello and Schaffhausen.
• Visitor numbers in France fell slightly, due mainly to a shortage of
French films.
• Visitor numbers in Belgium
remained stable.
Global group turnover reduced by
5.2% compared to 2001, due mainly
to the disappearance of Decatrons’
building activities for third parties in
2002.
Total operating revenues excluding
Decatron rose by 3.98%.
Cinema operating turnover rose by 3.5%.
• Significant growth at Kinepolis Valencia, Poznan,
Pioltello and Schaffhausen
• Lower turnover at the French complexes
• Status quo in Belgium
Film distribution experienced a weak year owing to
a lower number of available films. The fact that no
films were produced in 2002 reduced turnover by
no less than EUR 1.6 million.
EBITDA rose by 2.8% to EUR 45.3million.
• Significant growth at Kinepolis Valencia, Poznan,
Pioltello and Schaffhausen
• Reduction for the French complexes
• Almost no change in Belgium
The EDITDA / Operating Revenues margin excluding Decatron fell slightly.
EBIT amounted to EUR 10.7 million compared to
EUR 13.4 million in 2001. This reduction is
explained by the rise in provisions, write downs and
depreciations to EUR 34.6 million in 2002 as
against EUR 30.7 million in 2001.
• Provisions set up in 2002 for contractor claims
against Kinepolis Poznan (EUR 0.9m)
• Write downs in 2002 with the termination of a
number of secondary activities in France.
• Increased depreciations on the 2001 new starters
(EUR 1.8m) and on existing complexes
Financial results for 2002 were EUR – 16.6 million
compared with EUR – 32.4 million in 2001.
The difference of EUR 15.8m between the two
years is explained by:
• The concluding of a partially hedged Euro-loan in
Poland leaving an open exchange
risk on the Polish zloty. The weakening of the EUR/PLN exchange rate in
2002 produced a translation loss
(translation losses on the outstanding financial debt plus hedging
costs together totalling EUR 3 million). Additional hedging contracts
will be concluded in 2003.
• Additional financial charges relating to the complexes opened in
2001 (EUR 1.6m).
• Lower interest charges following the debt reduction in 2002 (EUR 2.0 m).
• The impact of the deconsolidations in 2001, a.o.
• In 2001 the financial result included the writedown on CinemaxX (EUR 18m).
Aside from the write-off of CinemaxX and the foreign exchange loss on Polish zloty, financial
results improved by 5.5%.
As part of its planned debt reduction programme
and following the strategic choice to focus in future
on the key markets of Belgium, France and Spain,
Kinepolis Group sold its interests in Italy (Pioltello),
the Netherlands (several smaller participations)
and Belgium (Pentascoop). The resulting capital
gain amounted to more than EUR 2 million. The
sale of sites in Spain and Poland also produced capital gains.

Taxes (included deferred taxes) rose in 2002 by
EUR 3 million to EUR 5 million, due mainly to the
one-off EUR 2.3m reversal of latent tax liabilities
recorded in 2001.
2002 by 22% from EUR 255m to EUR 198m, EUR
23 million in the first half, and a further EUR 34 million in the second half. Around EUR 16m of this
amount is due to the disposals.
The net consolidated result for 2002 amounts to
EUR – 7.8 million of which EUR – 5.7 million is the
group’s share.
In addition to this debt reduction, a debt restructuring package was negotiated, allowing a number
of short-term debts to be refinanced long-term.
Without the additional provision for contractor
claims in Poland (EUR 0.9 million) the group’s share
of net result would have reached break-even in the
second half.
In 2003 Kinepolis Group will again do everything
possible to continue the debt reduction programme and so improve the balance sheet structure. In this context, debt was further reduced by
EUR 9 million in January 2003. It should, however,
be stated here that the opening of the new complex
at Granada (Spain) in late 2003 will increase debt
by EUR 13 million.
The global net financial debt position (financial
debt less GIMV subordinated loan, cash at bank and
in hand and cash investments) was reduced in

1. Cinema operation
Several Kinepolis complexes broke their visitor
records towards the end of the year:
■ During the Christmas holidays Kinepolis
Hasselt passed the magic boundary of 10,000
visitors in one day for the first time since 1
November 2000!
■ In 2001 Kinepolis Schaffhausen
welcomed some 218,000 visitors,
in 2002 over 270,000 and in 2003
we are hoping to pass the
300,000 visitor mark.
With 24 comfortable, high-tech theatres and its
Imax theatre, Kinepolis Brussels has undoubtedly
added an innovative, if not revolutionary dimension
to the cinema world.
Kinepolis Brussels is now both the standard for the
sector, and the basis for Kinepolis Group’s expansion, with top quality facilities across
Europe.
With over 50% of the Brussels cinema
market, Kinepolis regularly wins
prizes for innovation and quality.
■ Kinepolis Courtrai has broken its
all-time visitor record, with
826,000 visitors in one year, up
from under 800,000 in 2001.
■ Metropolis Antwerp can also look back on a
record year, with just over 3,032,000 visitors to
our Antwerp complex in 2002.
Belgium
When in September 1988 Kinepolis Brussels, the
world’s first megaplex, opened its doors, nobody
could image that its profile would prove so strong
and its success so great that 14 years later the 40
millionth visitor would be choosing which film to
view.
During all these years Kinepolis has set the tone
and given a new impetus to the cinema operating
business.
At the end of 2002 (26 December
2002 to be precise) we had reached
the magic number. The 40 millionth
visitor was expected for the 20.00 h
film show, to be greeted in style by Kinepolis
Group senior management: a star was added in the
Walk of Fame and the lucky visitor received a VIP
pass for an unlimited number of films in 2003, as
well as the right to organise a private viewing,
offered by Kinepolis Film Distribution, for up to 40
of his/her friends and acquaintances.
No less than 200 free vouchers were also scattered
amongst the waiting mass of people following the
40 millionth visitor.
2002 also was an eventful year at Kinepolis
Courtrai :
■ Kinepolis Courtrai celebrated its fifth birthday
in style, including a balloon happening, a party
for all visitors, Donna’s summer tour and
sideshows.
■ The Euro introduction went very smoothly.
Today 40% of visitors pay electronically.
■ Each Kinepolis complex is regularly renovated
to make it more welcoming and comfortable for
visitors. In Courtrai this year the carpeting was
replaced and the foyer totally renovated, freeing
up additional space for commercial use.
■ The parking lot was also improved, with better
signalling, a re-arrangement of parking spaces
and green zones.

Visitor numbers at Kinepolis Courtrai have grown
every year, taking us in 2002 past the 800,000 mark.
We will maintain this figure by taking care of our very
family audience and our many event visitors.
Since 1 December 2002 the ‘Decascoop’ has been
renamed ‘Kinepolis Ghent’, to emphasis the
Kinepolis group identity and the uniform nature of
the Kinepolis complexes.
In fact the name ‘Decascoop’ dates back to 1975,
when Albert Bert built the first 10-screen (Deca = 10)
complex in cinema history. The memory of the
‘Decascoop’ and of our founder ‘Albert Bert’ have
been maintained by naming two of the theatres the
‘Albert Bert Theatre’ and the ‘Decascoop Theatre’.
The name also appears in the recent foyer renovation
in Ghent. To improve visitor fluctuation and to
enhance the cinema experience the old ‘Decascoop’
foyer has been remodelled into a see-through foyer
with higher ceilings, a friendly seating corner, new
carpeting and lighting and clearer and more legible
signing.
France
The French market proved highly competitive in
2002. Even with increased theatre capacity,
Kinepolis France was unable to avoid a 0.4% fall in
its share of the French market.
Two factors made 2002 an exceptional year for the
French cinema industry. First of all cinema-going was
unusually weak in March, April and September.
Secondly, French films represented just 34.2% of the
market (41.5% in 2001), with no new French films,
apart from Asterix and Obelix.

In 2003 several innovative programmes will be introduced to increase customer loyalty. In addition to
this, the infrastructures of Kinepolis Mulhouse and
Kinepolis Lomme will be adapted in the direction of
customer-focused film + fun entertainment centres.
Italy
Kinepolis Pioltello ended the year with more than
905.000 visitors, failing to meet its budget for the
year (-4,6%). Compared with last year (9.5 months
only), visitor figures are up by around 74%.
Cinecity Treviso ended the year on budget with
900,000 visitors, equalling the 2001 figure. For 2003
we are again planning on 900,000 visitors. Even
though several new projects are planned in the vicinity, experience shows that Treviso can rely on an
extremely faithful customer base.
On 20 December 2002 the Kinepolis group decided
to dispose of its interests in Italy. An agreement was
signed with Europlex Cinemas for the sale of the 14screen complex in Pioltello with immediate effect.
The stake in the complex in Treviso (55%) will also be
sold; negotiations with various parties are currently
ongoing.
An additional reason for selling the interests in Italy is
the current favourable climate in the Italian market,
which means Kinepolis can guarantee itself a capital
gain.
The sale of the complex in Pioltello will lead to a
reduction in debt of more than EUR 25 million.
Switzerland
Kinepolis Schaffhausen finished the year with
270,000 visitors, 24% up on 2001 and above budget.

The reasons lie both in the better choice of films
(Spiderman, Die Another Day…) and in initiatives
directed at clearly defined target groups (a new youth
card, programming of original version films, etc.).
Further explanation can also be found in Kinepolis
Schaffhausen’s higher profile in the region. For 2003
we are looking for continuing growth and 300,000
visitors. Supporting this is a good film line-up (including Matrix 2 and 3, Harry Potter 3, …), whilst activities around the cinema have been further developed
with the arrival of a bowling alley, a restaurant and a
pub.
Poland
Kinepolis Poznan counted 1.1 million visitors in its
first full operating year after opening in July 2001. It
remains, however, 43% under budget. The first reason lies in the general economic crisis that has hit
Poland hard (unemployment of over 20%, inflation
up around 10%). Secondly a number of films drew
fewer visitors than expected (Spiderman, Star Wars,
etc.).
major Polish films) and efforts to attract specific target groups (schools and students).
Spain
Kinepolis’ Spanish success story continues. With 3.5
million visitors Kinepolis Madrid remains the world’s
largest and most successful cinema.
Kinepolis Valencia has grown very strongly since
opening in 2001, and is now, after Madrid, Spain’s second largest cinema. In 2002 Kinepolis Paterna had a
market share of 30% in Valencia.
Kinepolis Spain’s popularity is again demonstrated in
the list of Spain’s 25 most popular cinemas. Eight of
the theatres in this list belong to Kinepolis.
Another important record in 2002 relates to the
launch of the Lord of the Rings, where Kinepolis
Spain took no less than 50,000 advance bookings.
Kinepolis Poznan did, however, drastically improve
its market share (from 55% at the time of opening to
70% at the end of 2002). The complex is developing
increasingly into an entertainment centre with bars,
shops, restaurants, gaming facilities, etc. These concessions bring in an annual income of around EUR
400,000. With further projects in the pipeline (carting, bowling, etc.), we expect this figure to grow by
50% in 2003. We expect visitor numbers to increase
in 2003 and think we will end up at 1.4 million.
Supporting this are the cinema’s growing regional
function, the film line-up (Harry Potter, a number of

2. Food & Beverage
The Kinepolis F&B Department can look back with
satisfaction at 2002. The introduction of the Euro
was passed without any technicals or operational
problems. Pricing-wise we made a conscious choice
to convert existing prices into Euro without any
price rises. We did, though, introduce in Belgium
and France on 1 January (and in December 2002 in
Spain) a totally new menu package with an emphasis on the sale of combos (drink and snack for a single price). These combo sales have positively
impacted popcorn and crisps sales.
Our ongoing cooperation agreements in Belgium
with Coca Cola, Interbrew and Nestle were renewed
in 2002. Several multi-annual partnerships were resigned with Unilever, Lay’s and Masterfoods. The
big newcomer to our drinks selection was the
Bacardi Breezer from Bacardi-Martini.

4. Booking & Programming
The Booking and Programming Department is
internationally responsible for
- selecting films and negotiating rental agreements with film distributors (booking)
- efficient programming based on cinema and
screen capacity (programming).
Every available analysis of the Belgian cinema market is collected and processed in this department.
The crucial question at the start of 2002 was: will
the films that promise so much on paper in fact
meet expectations?
The huge records established in the United States
failed to convince European audiences, and visitors
did not stream into the cinemas in the same way.
The one record broken was the opening weekend of
“Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets”.
Only a few titles made it past the EUR 2,500,000
box office mark:
Spiderman (which annihilated all records in the
USA) with EUR 4,105,826, Star Wars episode 2 with
EUR 3,280,035, Ocean’s Eleven with EUR 4,143,811,
whilst Asterix & Obelix, a European product, produced box office takings of EUR 4,508,859. Ice
Age brought in EUR 2.600.102.
The first Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings both of
course far exceeded this figure, but the figures are
spread over two years.
Films that came close to EUR 2,500,000 were: A
Beautiful Mind with EUR 2,185,305, 40 Days and 40
Nights with EUR 2,071,839 and Men in Black 2 with
EUR 2,256,567. Monsters Inc. brought in EUR
2,432,645.
‘Soft films’ and children’s films scored particularly
well. A Beautiful Mind also benefited from its Best
Film Oscar. War films and ‘heavy’ subjects were
avoided by the general public.
The trend of smaller films taking a larger share of
the cake continued in 2002, with a huge number of
‘small’ releases. This allows us to spread our offering much more evenly over the year, without the
huge peaks and troughs that we saw in the 1990s.
Audience demand makes us place more and more
trailers, i.e. we show more and more prints of one
and the same film, as today’s young people want to
see what’s new (and in particular cannot wait till
tomorrow).
This is a development that can be seen right across
Europe. Its effect is to shorten film cycles. A blockbuster that could previously easily run for 15
weeks, is now truncated to 10. Small films run for
no more than 6 weeks in our multiplexes.
The traditional peak weeks remain, concentrated
around the November and December holidays.
2003 looks good with a number of sequels including Matrix 2 and 3, Lord of the Rings 3, American
Pie 3, Bad Boys 2 and Charlie’s Angels 2. The fashion that began with Superman of cartoon characters coming to life on the screen, as in
Spiderman and Men in Black 2, continues in the
coming year with the Hulk and Daredevil.

Partnerships
Bacardi Breezer and Kinepolis have signed a 3year preferred partnership, a key reason being that
Kinepolis’s young, trendy audiences represent an
attractive target group for Bacardi. Bacardi
Breezer entered Kinepolis in original style with a
through-the-line campaign featuring fastlane visibility, shows, bannering campaign and advertisements in Movies 2 See.
Proximus too was much in evidence in 2002, for
example :
■ Star Wars on 16.5.2002: 3250 people were
invited to an exclusive pre-release showing
of Star Wars ‘Attack of the Clones’ at
Kinepolis Brussels. All level 2 theatres were
used for this event.
A contract has been signed
with Hewlett Packard for
close cooperation on the
updated Kinepolis ticket
platform (Kineticket).
■ Minority Report on 29 and 30.9 and 1.10 at
Kinepolis Brussels. Over 12,000 Proximus
clients enjoyed an exclusive pre-release
showing of ‘Minority Report’, with free soft
drinks for all visitors.
Unilever’s Iglo Ola division
has renewed its contract
for a further 3 years,
extending it to include Bi-Fi.
■ Treasure Planet at Kinepolis Brussels.
Almost 30,000 Proximus clients were invited to a pre-release showing at Kinepolis,
followed by a show in Expo Palace 12, where
Proximus had installed a Treasure Planet fun
park for the children.
Coca Cola and Kinepolis have cooperated in a wide
range of areas in 2002:
■ Saint Nickolas party for schools
(Kinescola): Coca Cola and Kinepolis
together surprised pupils on 5 and 6
December with a free drink + dance
acts.
■ Christmas action: a surprising
Christmas action began on 9
December with Christmas decorations in all Kinepolis complexes, and
visitor entertainment combined with
special food and drink offers
■ other activities directed at students
(Chill Out Events), as well as a new
Business to Business approach.
■ Another 6 Proximus
Film Experience evenings
in 2002, with visitors able
to watch a film of their
choice on Monday at 20.00
for just EUR 4.00, and with
Proximus paying the difference.

B2B activities and incentives
A first digital newsletter in html was sent in April
2002 to around 2,500 addresses. By November
this figure had risen to almost 6000. This newsletter, with information on events, news titbits, new
releases, customer testimonials, etc. is sent monthly to all Business to Business contacts.
Two news flashes were also sent this year: one for
the Film Festival and one for James Bond.
Kinepolis enjoys several key advantages when
organising seminars, congresses and product presentations, among them a spacious, free parking
area, easy road and metro access, theatres with
“stadium seating” and comfortable armchairs,
large screens and ample audiovisual facilities, multipurpose reception rooms for coffee breaks,
lunches, cocktails, small exhibitions, etc. These
B2B activities clearly have wind in their sails. To
consolidate – or even increase this growth – the
Regional Sales Promoters undertook a phone
prospecting campaign between May and August,
aimed at inviting prospects to the cinema complex
to experience “live” the opportunities Kinepolis
has to offer.
A CD Rom presenting “Kinepolis as location” was
left with or sent to prospects. 820 companies were
contacted this way and the first bookings have
already been taken.
■ The Metropolis, well known in the congress
sector for its Business & Communication
Centre, is in a class apart from Antwerp’s
other congress locations. In 2002 a folder
was produced to get the Business &
Communication Centre even better known.
Events held there in 2002 included:
■ Exhibitions: City of Antwerp, The Lonely
Mountain (games), Navajo, Microsoft, ...
■ Medical congresses: The Flemish Obstetrics
and Gynaecology Association
■ Federations: VEV (Federation of belgian
Enterprises), Flemish Quality Management
Centre
■ Film + exhibition: ROR Telecom
■ Seminars: PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Creyfs
Interim, .....
In 2003 and the coming years every effort will be
made to grow the Metropolis Business &
Communication Center into a key player on the
congress market.
A mailing featuring year-end and new year events
was sent to around 4,200 B2B clients. Special
emphasis was placed on specific films, among
them the main autumn releases: Harry Potter,
Treasure Planet, James Bond. This mailing was
immediately followed by a number of concrete
bookings, as well as various inquiries, some of
them for 2003 already.
New this year was a secretary’s day event, along
with the existing gift programme (i.e. good wishes
card and mini-film box). This year managers could
reserve dual tickets for their secretaries and their
partners for a particular pre-release showing. On
entering the theatre all visitors received a CocaCola light and an attractive goodie bag full of little
gadgets.

General
In 2002 two new Corporate Spots were introduced:
■ a Corporate high-tech spot, using loudspeakers, flashes and lenses to emphasise the three
Kinepolis Group qualities: 'sounds good', 'looks
good' and 'feels good':
■ a Corporate Zen-spot: a trip through the woods
(very dark, obscure images with corresponding
musical accompaniment) to the treetops (with
lots of light, colourful images and relaxing music),
the aim being to create a pleasant, restful sensation for visitors.
One of the two spots is shown for every film you
watch!
At the end of 2002 Van Gansewinkel and Kinepolis
signed a cooperation agreement to enhance visitor
awareness of the problem of litter, the aim being to
get visitors to place their litter in bins provided and
not leave it strewn around the theatre.
This spot too is shown before the start of every
film.

Happy Sundays: On 1 September, the 3rd Happy
Sundays season began with another varied selection of films, aimed at families with children aged 3
to 12.
The aim is to offer an attractive film morning, every
first Sunday of the month, in all Kinepolis cinemas,
combining children’s entertainment + film. Each
time two films are offered, with a special emphasis
on one of them. The number of visitors varies each
time between 4,000 and 9,000.
Following its overwhelming success last year and
the start of this year, it was essential to reopen the
Robijn Kine Crèche. In all 800 children visited this
well equipped crèche facility. Reactions from the
general public and from parents were all very positive. The crèche, for children aged 0 to 5 is available totally free of charge, every Sunday morning
at Kinepolis Brussels.
Everything is on hand to welcome parents and children: a crèche manager with a team of child carers,
a Robin clown to entertain the children, a GSM with
buzzer function to contact parents in the event of
problems…

All school projects, information on the KineScola
Film Festival and the regular film programme
were combined into one calendar per cinema.
In early October we launched the Guido-Kinepolis
Student Card, entitling students to reductions at
Kinepolis, for the fourth year in a row. Further
benefits were added to the card by XL Call, CocaCola, Hoegaarden, McDonald’s, Connections and
other partners.
This Student Card can now also be requested via
the Internet.
Sales Promotions
Year-end campaign: developed under the theme
‘we offer our clients emotion’ to feature our year
end sales promotions.
Extra sales promo: James Bond boxes with two sets
of James Bond playing cards + 4 vouchers, to mark
the 40th anniversary of the first Bond film.
Internet / Content International
The Kinepolis site is clearly popular. With over 24
million pageviews in 2002 (double the 2001 figure
and 4 times that of 2000) we can only say that our
visitors are mad keen on the internet and on the
Kinepolis site.
To give visitors even better information we

It was important to create a loyalty programme for

"Kinepolis Madrid: home of the stars"
Kinepolis Madrid received definitive recognition in
2002 as the ideal cinema for prestigious prerelease showings. Several of the world’s top stars,
among them Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Samuel
L. Jackson, Wesley Snipes, Britney Spears and
Robin Williams visited Kinepolis Madrid to mark
the launch of their latest films on the Spanish market.
Marketing
Matinées Magiques: A Matinée Magique product
was launched in France on the model of the Happy
Sundays in Belgium. Every first Sunday of the
month a pre-release showing is offered for the entire
family, preceded by children’s entertainment, etc.
Each matinee now draws an average 2,500 visitors
at the Lomme, Metz, Mulhouse and Thionville complexes.
Secret Movie: For visitors who are uncertain which
film to view, Kinepolis offers a pre-release showing
of a “Secret Movie” once a week, along with varied
entertainment and visitor gifts.
Summer ticket: Following the success of the 2001
Summer Ticket campaign, in which film tickets
were offered at EUR 5.00, no less than 58,607
Summer Tickets were sold in 2002.
Advertising contracts signed.
Three multi-annual contracts were signed in 2002,
generating significant additional income for
Kinepolis Spain:
■ Cemusa outdoor with Kinepolis Madrid (10
years, total income € 700,000 + free outdoor
furniture and media exchange). A pre-agreement
is in the pipelines with Kinepolis Granada.
■ Indoor Media (= new name of Promocentro)
with Kinepolis Madrid and Valencia (advertising
on indoor video circuits, 3-year contract, total
income € EUR 560,000).
■ Media pictures movie billboard with Kinepolis
Madrid and Valencia (large film boards on outside
walls, 2 year contract, total income of EUR
176,800).

Launch of Kinepremium
As Spain’s leading cinema chain, Kinepolis Spain
profiles itself professionally to the business community as the ideal partner for promotions, incentives, B2B events etc. The Kinepremium product
has been successfully launched in this context.
Kinepremium allows the business world to organise
film events with catering and entertainment in its
favourite Kinepolis cinemas. This formula, successful for many years already in Kinepolis
Belgium and France, is now catching on in Spain
Revival of below-the-line promotions
After a significant fall in 2001, income again rose
sharply from the hiring of space for below-the-line
promotions. A key factor here is the saturation and
high price of traditional Spanish advertising media
like television and newspapers. Experience tells us
that the Kinepolis leisure environment is extremely suited to below-the-line promotions.
Pre-sales campaigns
In 2002 every ‘blockbuster’ release was preceded
by a pre-sales campaign to keep one step ahead of
the competition. Kinepolis Spain for example presold more than 53,000 tickets for “The Lord of the
Rings: The Two Towers” before the first performance.
Added Value campaigns
Partnerships with local attraction parks, theatres
and video distributors have enabled Kinepolis
Spain to offer attractive premiums to over tens of
thousands of customers throughout the year.
Kinepolis is much more than cinema!
Cooperation with Spanish film producers
Given the importance of local film products for the
Spanish cinema world, Kinepolis Spain decided to
tighten its links with Spanish film producers. This
strategy has also resulted in the organisation of a
large number of pre-release showings in the presence of key personalities from Spanish social and
cultural life. Oscar winner J.M. Garci, Spanish premier José María Aznar and well-known investigating magistrate Garzón are just a few of the high
profile guests that Kinepolis has already welcomed
to these events.

We have begun exploring the Business to Business

from the motor car industry, the pharmaceuticals
sector and banks and insurance companies.
Many of them are already making use of the integrated media mix opportunities within Kinepolis
Poznan: product placement, animations and samplings, advertising on the back of the ticket, mentions in our weekly programming flyer, etc.
Certain companies have already understood that
Kinepolis offers the best location for holding seminars.

This year we began to work on a number of interesting target group programmes.
Schools
In 2002 we probed whether Kinepolis Poznan is
interesting for schools as pure entertainment. In an
initial approach 10 mailings were sent to 3,000
schools. Based on these mailings alone we have
already welcomed 130,000 school pupils this year.
A success that represented over 10% of all visitors
in 2002.
Families
In Poland too we started our Magic Mornings in
September. Various partners, among them CocaCola, Nestlé, Dynamix and Fawor, were immediately interested in this programme and cooperated
with free samplings of their products within the
complex.
This programme has proved so popular that we
shall certainly be repeating it in 2003.
Students
In May we also launched our student card. With the
Kinepolis student card you pay just 12 PLN for a
film, as well as enjoying a wide range of additional
benefits from the card’s partners.
Already 30,000 out of a total of 107,000 students
carry Kinepolis student cards.
Kinepolis Poznan’s first birthday
On 5 July 2002 Kinepolis Poznan was one year
old! This was celebrated during the weekend of 28

showings at special rates, entertainment and gifts
for young and old.
Football on the big screen:
During this year’s World Cup, supporters could

5. Film distribution
6. Film production
Kinepolis Film Distribution had a disappointing
year in 2002. Income was down owing to a lack of
films, with several film projects postponed after the
September 11, 2001 events. Another contributing
factor was the distribution problems of Miramax
Films, KFD’s leading supplier, in France. In mid2002 Miramax decided to end its contract with
French distributor BAC films and to set up its own
distribution arm in cooperation with TF1. TFM
became operational in October 2002. One positive
effect was KFD’s success with local productions.
Kinepolis Film Production ceased operations on 1
January 2003, with all existing projects, including
the filming of Thea Beckman’s book ‘Crusade in
Jeans’ and the children’s film ‘De Zusjes Kriegel’
transferred to EC Company. EC Company is a totally independent company, unrelated in any way to
the Kinepolis Group, with Eric Caroen (former
manager of Kinepolis Film Production) as its
Managing Director.
Overhead costs were pared back. Savings were
achieved, and continue to be made, on personnel
costs, general overheads and marketing costs.
More than ever before the cost/benefit ratio is
being optimised. Combined with rising expenditure
this should produce a positive balance in 2003.
In 2003 we are already certain that a sufficient
number of films will be released. The year got off to
a good start with Gangs of New York, Martin
Scorsese’s new film with a star-studded cast
(Leonardo diCaprio, Cameron Diaz and Daniel DayLewis), whilst other productions promise to be of
exceptionally high box office quality. Purchases
have increased, a number of films originally
planned for 2002 are finally ready for release, the
French distribution problems have been solved and
local acquisition policy is running at full steam.
MMG’s new Belgian productions (Flikken,
Windkracht 10, Hector, Max, Koko Flanel) promise
to be a hit.
7. Decatron
Decatron is the Kinepolis Group’s Project
Development arm. It also provides Projection &
Sound Support, Facility Management & Internal
Support, IT and technical support for F&B.
Kinepolis Project Development consists of the
development and management of new cinema projects. In 2002 this included preparatory work for
the Kinepolis Granada (opening at the end of
2003), but also the negotiations for the building
and realisation of future projects, including
Kinepolis Nancy (opening scheduled for 2004),
Kinepolis Ostend and Kinepolis Bruges (openings
scheduled for 2005-2006).

This activity consists of leasing adjacent sites

set up and operate restaurants, licensed premises,
and video and entertainment centres.
future to acquire new rental income without having
to cut back existing sources. The complexes
abroad, with their larger surface areas, are more
suited to this approach.
These premises are operated at optimal profitability in close consultation with the concession holders. Various concepts are designed to produce perfect complementarity, in which rival energy gives
way to creative retailing. A total leisure programme
with its specific activities commands constant
media attention and of course promotes the attractiveness of the site. This should help attract more
film visitors to Kinepolis, whilst producing spin-off
income both before and after cinema visits.
In October 2002 a Fyzix facility opened its doors in
the Kinepolis complex in Liège.
At the request of concession-holders special
events are put on in quieter cinema periods. At
Kinepolis Kortrijk, for example a hot air balloon
event was organised, and at the Metropolis
Antwerp the annual “4th of July” American Movie
Day. Other recent examples are the open-air
appearance of an opera singer and the “Image
Storm” project.
Concretely Kinepolis is developing an action plan
with its partners directed at visitors’ needs. It is
examining the possibility of combining the cinema
experience with sport and recreation, by for example including fitness and indoor children’s play
parks in its facilities. To achieve this, it is important
that the concept of cinema be interpreted more
widely by the law than simply film showings. For
this reason work began in 2002 on a study of the
zoning plans for the various complexes. Kinepolis
assumes that tomorrow’s consumer wants to be
offered a Total Leisure Program on one and the
same site, with a variety of services, facilities and
leisure opportunities. A well thought-out and varied range of activities stimulates Kinepolis’s concession-holders to do business successfully in a
unique discipline. This will enable Kinepolis in
Visitors to these events can also purchase cinema
tickets from restaurants and other facilities on the
Kinepolis site via the Kineticket system. This represents an additional service for Kinepolis visitors,
and at the same time an additional incentive to
visit these facilities.

Kinepolis Group’s employees are key contributors
to its success, and the group seeks to recognise
them appropriately. The group’s attention to its
employees also benefits its customers and other
stakeholders.
A HR Mission Statement has now been developed
from the Business Mission:
■ to be a multinational department with an
international, transparent and innovative dimension;
■ to strive for operational quality, efficiency
and flexibility
■ to represent added value for
management and employees
■ to stress the proper implementation of corporate policy and
legal obligations.
Health and safety at work
In September 2002 the external safety advisor was
succeeded by an internal safety advisor, whilst an
internal “basic safety” training programme was
organised for the hierarchical line. This training
allowed safety deputies to be officially appointed to
support the internal Accident Prevention and Work
Protection Department.
The key objective for 2003 is the monthly control
round of the complexes, aimed at guaranteeing
maximum safety for both staff and customers.
Projects for 2003
As the most important projects we
can already mention the expansion of
the Intranet and the Kinepolis
Academy (quality management and
internal training programmes).
Kinepolis Group wishes to attract
and motivate talented people who
embody its values of “quality” and
“customer focus”. At the same time
the group emphasises team spirit,
sense of responsibility and personal

Training
An extensive training programme, consisting of

Capital structure
The authorized capital of the company amounted at
31 December 2002 to EUR 47,442,919.65, represented by 6,930,778 shares without nominal value, all
enjoying the same rights.
The authorisation of the Board of Directors to

General Meeting of 17 May 2002.
The Board is therefore empowered, until 17 July
2007, to increase the capital of the company in one

Meeting also empowered the Board of Directors until

Shareholders structure
A shareholders agreement has been concluded
between the Bert (Kinohold) and Claeys (CCM&H)
families which contains arrangements relating to
the structuring and anchoring of control of the
Kinepolis Group, the composition of the administrative bodies and the Group’s industrial strategy.
A second shareholders agreement contains
arrangements between the Bert and Claeys families on the one hand and GIMV on the other. These
concern mainly restrictions on the transfer of
voting securities. In this way transfers of shares by
GIMV are subject to a preferential right of purchase
in favour of the Bert and Claeys families.

The Articles of Association state that the Board of
Directors can consist of up to 10 members, at least

Directors are appointed for a maximum term of 6
years and may be reappointed.
The Articles of Association do not impose any age

(1) EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) refers to the operating result excluding depreciation and write-downs.
(2) As Decatron creates non-eliminable turnover either by building for or delivering to third parties or for companies in joint ventures (Nîmes 2000) or
through sale and lease-back (Valencia 2001) and there is no operating margin on these activities, the overall margin of the Kinepolis Group is affected.
That is why “Ebitda excluding Decatron” is also mentioned
(3) Equity including the GIMV subordinated bond loan in the amount of EUR 5.95m in 2002, EUR 7.44m in previous years.
(4) Comprises 18.6% of the participating interest held by Deficom Group nv (2001/2000: 32%) held in Kinepoleast nv and 45% of Cinecity Treviso held by
Furlan Cinema Teatri Group.
(5) Excluding GIMV for an amount of EUR 5.95 million in 2002, EUR 7.44 million in 2000 and 2001
Kinepolis group reduced its indebtedness by 22% in 2002. The debts were reduced by EUR 58 million. A significant
proportion of the short-term debt (EUR 34m) was also converted into long-term debt. The EBITDA, operating profit before depreciation, write-downs and provisions, rose by 2.8% as compared with 2001. The net consolidated loss
(group share) of EUR 5.7m was mainly due to an exchange rate loss and the cost of hedging against the Polish Zloty
amounting to EUR 3m. Start-up losses for new complexes, additional provisions and an increased burden of tax in
Belgium and Spain account for the rest of the loss.

ON THE CONSOLIDATED BALANCE SHEET
AND INCOME STATEMENT FOR
2002.
Consolidated balance sheet: Commentary on assets
Formation expenses
Formation expenses fell by EUR 1.7 million mainly due to depreciation during the financial year.
Intangible fixed assets
Intangible assets amounted to EUR 1.56m at the end of 2002. These consisted mainly of goodwill eligible for depreciation held in relation to the Forvm Kinepolis Nîmes cinema complex in France and newly developed software in
connection with the Kineticket platform.
The remainder mainly consists of small licences and concessions held by the various companies in the group.
Positive consolidation differences
This heading includes the positive consolidation differences arising from the initial consolidation on 1 January 1996
and resulting from the takeover of minority interests at the end of 1997 and 1998. The goodwill created after the
takeover of minority interests held by GIMV pending restructuring of the Group was calculated on the basis of the
equity position according to Group valuation rules at the end of 1997, the date that comes closest to the actual
takeover date. A number of positive consolidation differences also arose from the takeover of certain other participating interests.
In 2002 there was a rise in this item by EUR 3.2m, due to a change in the percentage holdings in Polish companies
Kinopoleast (company governed by Dutch law), Kinepolis Poznan and Kinepolis Spzoo.
In line with the Group valuation rules the depreciation period was set at ten years for all positive consolidation differences. This depreciation gives rise to a total cost of EUR 2.5 million. The net book value at the end of the year
was therefore EUR 16.5m.
Tangible fixed assets
Tangible fixed assets fell in 2002 from EUR 320.2m to EUR 260.3m.
Investments during the financial year amounted to EUR 13.8m and mainly related to the new complexes in Granada
(Spain) and Nancy (France) and the installation of the Kineticket platform, plus the completion of the recent complexes (Poznan, Valencia, Pioltello) and a few replacement investments. Disinvestments and decommissioning
amounted to EUR 14.8m and mostly related to sales of land in Warsaw (Poland) and Granada (Spain).
Depreciation of EUR 27.9m was at a similar level to last year. Due to a significant fall in the Polish zloty exchange
rate, the effect of translation differences was EUR -5.3m.
Companies removed from the consolidation scope during the financial year (mainly Pioltello and Pentascoop)
accounted for the remaining difference of EUR 25.6m.

PRESENTATION
OF THE CONSOLIDATED KEY FIGURES
Financial fixed assets
Enterprises accounted for by the equity method
Last year this item included a sum of EUR 0.73m relating exclusively to the participating interest in the cinema complex at Vlissingen, with the associated Cinécafé. This participating interest was sold during the financial year as part
of a change in strategy.
Other enterprises
This includes some smaller participating interests amounting to EUR 0.05m.
Amounts receivable after 1 year
The amounts receivable after 1 year mainly comprise the long-term component of investment grants to be received
and which the Company received in the past by the French public authorities via Centre National de la
Cinématographie, (C.N.C.) for the “Le Château du Cinéma” project in Lomme, the Max Linder complex in Paris,
Kinépolis St-Julien-lès-Metz, as well as new subsidies for the Forvm Kinépolis complex in Nîmes
These investment grants are included, after deducting deferred taxes, under the equity heading ‘Investment grants’
and released to the income statement at the depreciation rate for the various underlying investments. Actual payment of the investment grants by the C.N.C. is directly linked to the taxes paid on cinema tickets sold.
Stocks and contracts in progress
Stocks
Consolidated stocks can be broken down into those directly related to cinema operations and on the hand the stock
of technical goods for resale which is held:

Raw materials and consumables consist of maintenance materials and materials for minor repairs held by the various operating companies. Goods for resale associated with cinema operations comprise the limited stocks of drinks
and confectionery held at the various complexes at the year end.
The stock of technical goods for resale which is held by Decatron NV include stocks of spare parts for repairs and
maintenance of sound, projection and information technology equipment and also goods and materials purchased
in connection with the implementation of new projects through Decatron NV. The amount of this last type of stock
fluctuates depending on the number and extent of projects in progress on the balance sheet date. At the end of
2002 the stock of technical goods for resale comprised the projection equipment for the complex at Pioltello, which
was under construction.
Contracts in progress
Contracts in progress relate to the costs of projects at the pre-development stage, which are being carried out by
Decatron for the account of Kinepolis Group. The capitalized costs of future projects are shown under the heading
‘Fixed assets under construction’. In view of the decision by the Board of Directors in mid-2001 to make a temporary pause in the investment programme, this currently consists mainly of costs relating to the Granada and Nancy
projects.

7 279.10
13 562.06
7 956.81
8 318.05
16 274.86
Debtors from cinema operations relate to invoicing for vouchers, exchange deals, sponsor deals, events and advertising, and also to the hire of commercial premises ("concessions") to third parties outstanding at the year end.
Trade debtors from other activities consist mainly of the outstanding receivables of Decatron NV and also the global group receivables centralized for the Kinepolis Group.
The fall in Cinema operations debtors was mainly due to companies excluded from the consolidation during the
financial year and the writing off of bad debts in France. The fall in other activities was mainly due to the movements in debtors relating to the Group's real estate activities (project development) and overall amounts receivable
by the Kinepolis group.
Other amounts receivable
Other receivables at the year-end comprise the balance of VAT still to be recovered by various companies and any
overpayment of corporation tax to be recovered. The short-term component of investment grants to be received for
Kinépolis Le Château du Cinéma in Lomme, Max Linder in Paris, Kinépolis St-Julien-les-Metz and Forvm Kinépolis
(Nîmes) are also included under this item.
The fall was mainly the result of companies deconsolidated during the financial year and a fall in recoverable VAT
credits. That is because a significant proportion of the recoverable VAT credits at the end of 2001, mainly arising
from the building of new complexes, were received during 2002. Nevertheless there were still some large amounts
receivable at the end of 2002, particularly in Spain, Poland and Italy.
Short-term investments and cash at bank and in hand
The value of the company's own shares held by the Kinepolis Group NV was EUR 0.43 million in all on 31 December
2002. This value takes into account the share price on the closing date.
A cash pooling system ensures that cash shortages in one company are supplemented from temporary surpluses in
others, according to the so-called 'zero balancing system'. As a result there were no short-term investments in foreign group companies on 31 December 2002.
Money from the sale of participating interests was mainly used to reduce debts.
The shares in CinemaxX AG (3m shares or 25%) were fully written off last year and are therefore no longer on the
balance sheet. The sale of these CinemaxX shares is still taking place, although in quite difficult market conditions.
Deferred charges and accrued Income
This item consists mainly of costs of insurance and maintenance agreements relating to future periods and interest
receivable at the year-end.

It can be deduced from the table above that the consolidated equity fell by some EUR 9.7m
The loss for the financial year amounting to EUR 5.7m accounts for the largest portion of this.
The write-off of negative consolidation differences on Pentascoop (deconsolidated) and Decatron account for the
EUR 0.9m movement in this item.
The fall in translation differences was mainly due to the fall in the PLN as compared with the EURO.
The investment grants comprise the part not yet included in the result, after deduction of relevant deferred taxation, of investment grants received from the Belgian government for the cinema complex in Hasselt and the investment grants received from the French government (C.N.C.) for the projects ‘Kinepolis le Château du Cinéma’ in
Lomme, Max Linder in Paris, and Kinepolis St.-Julien-les-Metz and Forvm Kinepolis Nîmes. Incorporation in the result
is being carried out via the financial result in accordance with the depreciation rate for the various elements of
underlying investments and at 31 December 2002 it amounted to approximately EUR 1.4 million.

Provisions for liabilities and charges and deferred taxes
Provisions for liabilities and charges include the provisions made by the individual companies for pensions, major
repair and maintenance works, costs in the context of the future expiry of concession agreements and for disputes.
In 2002 additional provisions were made amounting to EUR 1.4m. The largest provision was made in Poland and
relates to a dispute with contractors in connection with the building of the complex in Poznan.
The provision for deferred taxes amounted to EUR 5.90 million at the end of 2002 and related exclusively to the
future tax effect of the release of the investment grants at C.C.E. Limburg (Kinepolis Hasselt), Kinepolis Le Château
du Cinéma, Max Linder, Kinepolis St.-Julien-lès-Metz and Forvm Kinépolis Nîmes.
Latent tax liabilities fell from EUR 0.76m to EUR 0.65m, mainly due to the lowering of the corporation tax rate in
Belgium, partly offset by rises in these tax liabilities in newer complexes (Braine-l'Alleud, Poznan and Valencia).
Amounts payable after more than 1 year and amounts payable within 1 year
Debts payable after one year
At the end of 2002 the subordinated loans related to the amount of subordinated loans underwritten by GIMV and
payable after more than one year, which was EUR 5.95m.
Total long-term debts excluding the aforementioned subordinated loan amounted to 154.43m at the end of 2002
(EUR 166.87m at the end of 2001). The long-term amounts owed to credit institutions consisted of loans obtained
from various financial institutions in the past to finance the different existing complexes. In the context of a debt
restructuring programme a debt of EUR 34m was converted from short-term to long-term debt during the financial
year. Companies deconsolidated during the financial year, the most important of which was Pioltello (Italy), gave rise
to a fall in long-term debts of EUR 16m.
Debts payable within one year
Financial short-term debts fell by EUR 45.87m to EUR 56.92m. This amount included the share of the subordinated
loan from GIMV (EUR 1.4m) which was scheduled for repayment within one year. Overall reduction in financial debts
therefore amounted to more than EUR 58m.
Trade debts encompass both the amounts due for the supply of goods and services within the context of investments made during the past financial year and current debts to suppliers at the end of the year within the framework of effective operations. Trade creditors were in line with last year, taking into account the companies deconsolidated during the year.
Advances received on contracts in progress fell to EUR 0.14m, mainly as a result of the loss of projects.
Other debts, including debts in relation to taxation, wages and social security fell by EUR 2.14m, mainly due to the
companies excluded from the consolidation during the financial year.
Accrued charges and deferred income
Accrued charges and deferred income consist mainly of vouchers not yet redeemed at the year-end to be carried
forward, and accrued interest charges for the financial year. Interest charges attributable to the financial year made
up the majority of the remainder.

Consolidated income statement
In 2002 Kinepolis Group succeeded in reducing the consolidated loss (group share) to EUR 5.74m (2001: EUR 20.75m).
This loss is mainly due to an exchange rate loss and the cost of hedging against the Polish zloty amounting to EUR
3m. Start-up losses for new complexes, additional provisions and higher taxes account for the rest of the loss. In comparison with the 2001 financial year it should be pointed out that 2001 was strongly influenced by the write-off of the
participating interest in the German cinema group Cinemaxx AG (see also investments).

In order to gain a correct view of the evolution of operating results, they must be considered separately for each activity. In 2001 the turnover still included a significant proportion arising from the group's construction activities. Following
the decision by the Board of Directors in mid-2001 to reduce the pace of investments temporarily, no new complexes
were opened in 2002 and consequently there was virtually no income from this activity. The fall in operating income is
fully accounted for by this. When Decatron, the company that covered these activities, is excluded, operating income
rose by almost 4%.
Recent complexes which are not yet achieving their full capacity are responsible for the largest proportion of the fall
in operating income. Certain additional provisions, mainly in Poland and France, accounted for the rest of the fall.

(2) The turnover from project development for 2001 includes the realization of the sale and rent back project in Paterna and for 2000 it includes the realization of the joint venture project in Nîmes.
The fall in turnover from EUR 218.55m to EUR 207.18m was entirely due to the fall in turnover from the provision of
technical services and project development (Decatron). Last year the turnover from a sale and rent back operation
involving the complex in Valencia was also included.
Turnover from cinema operations rose by 3.5% to more than EUR 195m. The increase in turnover from existing complexes is mainly due to the additional turnover from the Thionville and Mulhouse complexes, which were still in the
non-mature group in 2001. As a result the proportion of turnover from mature cinemas rose to 73% (2001: 65%) of
total turnover. It is noticeable that the non-mature cinemas, despite the fact that not a single new complex was
opened in 2002 and despite the aforementioned transition from Thionville and Mulhouse to the existing mature cinemas, achieved virtually the same turnover as in 2001. The proportion of turnover from non-mature cinemas was
therefore unchanged at 21%.
Turnover from other activities also rose.

sales (events, exchange agreements etc.) in the cinemas fell slightly. It should be pointed out here, however, that a

It is clear from the above table that the proportion from non-mature cinemas is still growing: there were significant
increases in turnover in Spain, Poland and Italy. In the Belgian domestic market the company was able to maintain
its strong leading position with turnover remaining at a similar level. Turnover in France fell slightly, mainly as a
result of the poorer French films on offer. Finally, a welcome rise took place in Switzerland. In 2002 there was no
longer any turnover in the Netherlands due to the sale of the participating interest in Ede in late 2001. Finally it
should be pointed out that the complex in Pioltello was sold in late 2002.
Architectural advice and technical assistance
These activities are carried out by the subsidiaries Decatron NV and Devicos NV, mainly on behalf of the other companies in the group. By analogy with the previous year, the turnover realized on the basis of project development
was eliminated by offsetting against fixed assets – own construction and direct costs within Decatron. Due to the
decision by the Board of Directors in mid-2001 to take a temporary pause in the intensive investment programme
seen in recent years, the construction department was scaled down. Decatron's main activity in 2002 therefore consisted of providing assistance with facility management, projection and sound, food & beverage equipment and IT
support, mainly for the group's own complexes. Nevertheless, third parties are also still benefiting from Decatron's
unique knowledge in this specific area and thus, among other things, the projection and sound equipment for a project in Turnhout was supplied and installed by Decatron in 2002.

Other activities
Turnover figures include the activities carried out for third parties by a number of associate companies, such as the
distribution of film rights, media sales issued by the Kinepolis Group and film production. Turnover from film distribution fell sharply in 2001 due to a poor supply of films. Since there were no film productions in 2002, no turnover
was generated either. The rise in other activities was therefore entirely attributable to the rise in media sales in the
Kinepolis Group.
Other operating income
The other operating income mainly consists of rental income realized by the various group companies for the rental
of concessions, car parks and advertising space.
Operating costs
Total operating costs amounted to EUR 203m as compared with EUR 208m last year. The sharp fall in purchases of
goods for resale, raw materials and consumables could be explained by the ending of construction activities as
already discussed under turnover. The rise in services and miscellaneous goods, personnel costs, depreciation and
other operating costs was mainly due to the recent complexes (Pioltello, Valencia, Poznan): in comparison with 2001
costs were now in the accounts for a full year, which was not the case last year.
Operation of cinema complex
The main elements of operating costs are purchases of film hire and Food & Beverage and services and miscellaneous goods.
Municipal taxes and copyright charges were paid on box office takings. Film rental charges to the holders of the film
rights also have to be paid on the remainder.
In addition to these specific costs, the operating companies incur liabilities of which the most significant are:
• Purchases for events: depending on the selling prices for catering activities;
• Rental charges: these are limited since the majority of land and buildings are owned. Rent is paid in Brussels,
Metropolis (Antwerp), Max Linder (Paris), Lomme, Valencia and Treviso.
• Property taxes and duties: on all kinds of movable and real estate property;
• Maintenance and decorative repairs;
• Electricity, gas and oil.
Other activities: Kinepolis Film Distribution (KFD) and Kinepolis Film Productions (KFP)
Under other activities, production costs and royalties from Kinepolis Film Distribution should be mentioned in particular. Due to the lower turnover at KFD, these costs were also significantly lower in comparison with last year.
Since KFP did not have any productions, virtually no costs were recorded either.
Depreciation and amounts written off
Depreciation relates mainly to assets used in the operating companies. The opening of new multiplexes in 2000 and
in 2001 (Treviso, Nîmes, Schaffhausen, Ede, Pioltello, Paterna and Poznan) led to a rise in depreciation charges in
recent years. Complexes which became operational during the financial year are not depreciated for a full year. This
largely accounts for the rise in depreciation from EUR 27m in 2001 to EUR 30m in 2002 The remainder of the
increase can be accounted for by additional depreciation due to the cessation of a number of auxiliary activities in
France.

PRESENTATION
OF THE CONSOLIDATED KEY FIGURES
Provisions for liabilities and charges
The largest component of this item related to a provision that was made for a dispute in Poland with a number of
contractors concerning the building of the complex in Poznan.
Amortization of goodwill
In accordance with Group valuation rules the depreciation period for all goodwill was fixed at ten years. This resulted
in a depreciation charge for 2002 of EUR 2.47 million. Last year, following a decision by the Board of Directors, an additional special write-down of EUR 1.53m was entered in the accounts.

The financial loss improved from EUR -32m in 2001 to EUR -16m in 2002. In 2002, however, this figure included a
write-down of EUR 18m on the CinemaxX participating interest.
Interest payable and similar charges fell slightly to EUR 15.2m. Additional interest of EUR 1.6m on loans for the new
complexes opened during 2001 was offset by lower interest charges thanks to the debt reduction that took place
during 2002. The remainder of the difference can be accounted for by the companies excluded from the consolidation during 2001.
The other financial profit and loss items mainly consisted of the effect of exchange losses and costs of hedging
against the Polish zloty amounting to EUR 3m.

The extraordinary income items mainly consisted of capital gains realised on participating interests: Pentascoop
(Belgium), Kinepolis Pioltello (Italy), Kinepolis Zeeland with the subsidiary participating interest in VOF Palais du
cinéma Alhambra and the associated Cinecafé (project in Vlissingen, the Netherlands). Capital gains were also
realised on the sale of land in Warsaw (Poland) and Granada (Spain).
The remainder of the extraordinary income can be accounted for by additional depreciation due to the cessation of
a number of auxiliary activities in France.
Withdrawals from and transfers to deferred taxes and latent taxes
This refers mainly to movements in latent tax liabilities, which are calculated from the differences between the economical and fiscal depreciation of tangible fixed assets held by the various companies.
In 2001 a merger in Belgium gave rise to a write-back of deferred tax liabilities amounting to EUR 2.28m, which largely accounts for the difference with the current financial year.
Taxation
Taxation rose from EUR 4.2m in 2001 to EUR 5.6m in 2002. This rise mainly arises in Belgium (EUR +0.9m) and
Spain (EUR +0.4m).

NOTES
TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
I.A. Consolidation criteria
All Group and associated companies are included in the Kinepolis Group consolidation
according to the following consolidation methods :
-
Full consolidation : this method is applied to those companies where Kinepolis Group NV holds more than half
the shares or over which it exercises de facto control.
Proportional consolidation : this method is applied to those companies, which are controlled by the Kinepolis
Group together with other shareholders.

VI.A. Accounting and valuation rules applied in preparing the consolidated financial statements
A. General
The accounting principles and valuation rules used in preparing the consolidated accounts comply with the Belgian
accountancy legislation and the provisions of the Royal Decree of 6 March 1990. The consolidated financial statements were prepared on 31 December, the balance sheet date of the parent company Kinepolis Group NV and all
consolidated companies. The consolidated financial statements are prepared after the distribution of profits by
Kinepolis Group NV. The financial statements of the other consolidated companies are included before appropriation of profits.
The valuation rules used for the consolidation are those of the parent company Kinepolis Group NV, supplemented
by certain rules specific to the consolidation. Where there are significant differences, recalculations are always carried out for companies included by the full and proportional consolidation methods. This has only given rise to
adjustments in connection with the depreciation of tangible fixed assets. The other valuation rules are virtually the
same for the entire Kinepolis Group and the remaining departures have no material influence on the consolidated
position as indicated below.
After merging the balance sheets and income statements, as recalculated in accordance with the group valuation
rules, the intercompany balances and transactions and the associated results are eliminated. By analogy with last
financial year, the turnover made by Decatron NV was offset against the fixed assets produced and the immediate
costs within Decatron. This concerns invoices issued for specific Kinepolis projects undertaken by Decatron.

B. Valuation Rules
Formation expenses and intangible fixed assets
Formation expenses and the costs of increases in capital were valued at cost and depreciated at 20% per year. Loan
costs, if any, are depreciated over the term of the loan. Intangible fixed assets are included on the balance sheet at
cost. Annual depreciation is applied by the straight-line method at 20% per year starting from the first year.
Consolidation differences
The consolidation differences represent the divergence between the purchase cost on the one hand and the corresponding share of net equity on the other. Insofar as these differences originate in the over- or undervaluation of
certain asset or liability items, they are appropriately allocated. The remaining difference is included in the consolidated accounts under "Consolidation differences" in the reported assets or liabilities depending on whether the
price is greater or less than the share in equity (recalculated if necessary).
When drafting of Kinepolis Group NV’s first consolidated financial statements as at 31 December 1996, the opportunity was taken to calculate the initial goodwill from the starting date of the financial year to which the first consolidated financial year relates, in this case 1 January 1996 (art. 50 of the Royal Decree of 6 March 1990).
Goodwill is normally amortized on a straight-line basis over a period of 10 years, but the period actually adopted
depends on an individual assessment by the Board of Directors in relation to the anticipated economic useful life.
Additional or exceptional amortization is applied to goodwill when, as a result of changes in economic circumstances, the original values can no longer be justifiably retained on the consolidated balance sheet. Negative consolidation differences remain unchanged up to the point when the participating interest concerned is sold, if at all.
Tangible fixed assets
Tangible fixed assets are valued at cost including acquisition expenses or at contributed value less cumulative
depreciation plus the respective capitalized interest, where this relates to the period before they became operational. Straight-line depreciation is applied for consolidation purposes on the basis of the anticipated economic useful life of the assets concerned, without taking account of any residual value of these assets.

Investments in a completely new complex are depreciated pro rata from the month in which they become ready for
use. Other investments are depreciated for the full year, from the year of acquisition.
Expenditure on extensions, major renovations and improvements is capitalized. Expenditure on repairs, maintenance and replacements that does not materially extend the economic life of the assets is recorded as costs.
Financial Fixed Assets
The book value of participating interests in companies to which the equity method is applied is adjusted to the proportional share of the net equity of these companies, determined according to the consolidation rules.
The participating interests mentioned under the heading ‘Other companies’ are valued at purchase cost after applying a write-down, where applicable, where the reduction in value is permanent.

Stocks
Stocks are valued at cost or at market value (realizable value) if lower. The purchase cost is determined by the FIFO
method.
Contracts in progress are valued at production price by the ‘completed contract method’.
Receivables and debts
Receivables and debts are valued on a nominal value basis. Provisions are made for receivables that are wholly or
partly uncertain or doubtful.
Short-term investments and cash in hand and at bank
Fixed-interest securities, shares and units are valued at purchase cost, including additional charges, or at their market value if it is lower.
Deferred charges and accrued income
These accounts are recorded and valued at purchase cost and included in the balance sheet for the component
which is carried forward to next year.
Consolidated reserves
Group reserves include the reserves and transferred results of the consolidated company, plus the Group’s share in
the results of the other fully and proportionally consolidated companies and companies to which the equity method
has been applied, after deducting any distributions.
Translation differences
For financial statements of subsidiaries expressed in a currency other than EUR, all items on the balance sheet are
converted at the closing rate and those on the income statement at the average rate. Capital and reserves are
retained at their historic value in EUR. The difference that therefore arises in relation to the closing rate is transferred to the translation differences account. The difference between the closing rate and the average rate for the
results is also transferred to this account.
Provisions for liabilities and charges
On the basis of a cautious estimate, the Board of Directors decides which provisions should be made to cover the
cost of major repairs and extensive maintenance and any other liabilities and charges that are probable or certain
on the balance sheet date, but whose extent is not yet precisely known.

Deferred taxes and latent tax
Deferred taxes are calculated on the temporary differences between the fiscal result and the result calculated
according to Group rules, at the applicable rates for the companies concerned. This provision is made by the ‘full
provision’ method and is revised each year to take into account any movement in the taxable base and any changes
in legislation. No latent tax assets are included in the Kinepolis Group’s consolidated accounts. Any latent tax assets
in the company accounts of foreign or other subsidiaries are reversed to the extent that they exceed tax liabilities.
The provision for deferred taxes on capital gains achieved and investment grants is fully retained as entered on the
company financial statements.
Conversion of foreign currency
Receivables and debts expressed in foreign currency are converted at the end of the financial year at the closing
rate. The resulting translation differences are charged to the income statement if the calculation per currency gives
rise to a negative difference and are included under accrued charges and deferred income if the calculation for that
currency gives rise to a positive difference.
Derivative financial products
To date the Group has not used derivative financial investments. No transactions of a speculative nature have been
undertaken.
C. Change in the valuation rules
There has been no change in the valuation rules at the consolidated level as compared with last year.

AUDITOR’S
REPORT ON THE CONSOLIDATED
FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Statutory Auditor's report on the consolidated accounts of the société anonyme/naamloze vennootschap
(public limited company) Kinepolis Group presented to the to the General Meeting of Shareholders.
Consolidated annual accounts for the year ended on 31 December 2002
In accordance with legal and statutory requirements, we are pleased to report to you on the audit work that was
entrusted to us.
We have audited the consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2002 with a balance sheet
total of EUR 358.227.(000) and a share of the group in the loss for the year of EUR 5.745.(000). These consolidated financial statements have been prepared under the responsibility of the Board of Directors of the Company. In
addition we have reviewed the directors’ report.
Unqualified audit opinion on the consolidated financial statements
Our audit was performed in accordance with the standards of the Institut des Reviseurs d'Entreprises-Instituut der
Bedrijfsrevisoren. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance
about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement, taking into account the
Belgian legal and regulatory requirements relating to the consolidated financial statements.
In accordance with these standards we have considered the administrative and accounting organisation of the
group as well as the system of internal control. The group’s management have provided us with all explanations
and information, which we required for our audit. We have examined on a test basis, the evidence supporting the
amounts included in the consolidated financial statements. We have assessed the accounting policies used, the
basis for consolidation and the significant accounting estimates made by the Company and the overall presentation
of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements of Kinepolis Group for the year ended December 31, 2002 present fairly the financial position of the group and the consolidated results of its operations, in conformity with the
prevailing legal and regulatory requirements, and the disclosures made in the notes to the consolidated financial
statements are adequate.
Additional certification
As required by generally accepted auditing standards the following additional certification is provided. This assertion does not alter our audit opinion on the consolidated financial statements.
- The consolidated directors’ report contains the information required by law and is in accordance with the
consolidated financial statements.

COMMENTS
FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
ON THE ORDINARY FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Comments on the ordinary annual accounts of the Kinepolis Group NV
The Kinepolis Group’s shareholders’ equity amounted to EUR 55.49 million on 31 December 2002 compared with
EUR 54.96 million at the end of 2001. This increase of EUR 0.53 million is primarily due to the profit for the financial year partly neutralised by the implemented capital reduction amounting to EUR 2,478,935.25. The company’s
balance sheet total fell to EUR 213,029,523 compared with EUR 222,002,183 in 2001. On the assets side of the balance sheet, the fall is almost totally ascribable to a reduction in the other debtors item. On the liabilities side, this
fall mainly relates to a reduction in debts.
1. ORDINARY
BALANCE SHEET: DISCUSSION OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ASSETS
1.1. Formation expenses
The change in the formation expenses is explained by the write-off of costs relating to the stock exchange fluctuations (IPO and SPO), mainly costs for drawing up the prospectus, fees for external advisers, the audiovisual presentation and the share placement commission. The relevant costs are being written off over five years.
1.2 Financial fixed assets
The main changes in the financial year concern:
- a capital increase in the Dutch holding company Kinepoleast
- sale of the stake in Kinepolis Pioltello
- sale of the stake in Pentascoop
An increase of EUR 1.1 million was noted as a result.
1.3 Amounts receivable within one year
Trade debtors: The increase is primarily ascribable to an increase in inter-company amounts receivable.
Other amounts receivable: the fall is mainly the result of the conversion of the intercompany current account into
capital.
1.4 Current investments and cash at bank and in hand
No major change.

2. ORDINARY
Page 69
BALANCE SHEET: DISCUSSION OF THE MOST IMPORTANT
BALANCE SHEET ITEMS
2.1 Capital, share premium account and profit carried forward
The fall in the capital by EUR 33 million is ascribable to a capital reduction which was used to compensate the loss
carried forward and to charge off the incorporated revaluation surplus after an incorporation of the share premium
as capital.
2.2 Amounts payable after one year
The increase is due to a debt reorganisation where EUR 33 million in short-term debt was converted to long-term debt.
2.3 Amounts payable within one year
The fall in financial debts can be ascribed to the above-mentioned debt rescheduling increased by the normal reimbursements in the financial year.
The other debts also fall.
3. DISCUSSION OF THE ORDINARY
ON 31 DECEMBER 2002
INCOME STATEMENT
The result for the financial year increases by EUR 20.8 million from EUR – 17.8 million to EUR 3.0 million. The result
for the previous financial year included an exceptional result of EUR 1.1 million and a financial reduction in value of
EUR 18 million. In 2002, the exceptional result amounted to EUR 8 million and a financial reduction in value amounting to EUR 4.1 million was booked.
The result without these above-mentioned one-off elements thus remained equal to EUR – 0.9.
The operating result fell in comparison to the previous year to EUR 1.8 million, which is mainly ascribable to an
increase in the services, other goods and wage costs item.
The financial result, without taking account of the financial reduction in value increased from EUR – 3.9 million to
EUR –2.5 million, principally due to the receipt of an intra-group dividend.

VALUATION
RULES
1. Principle
The valuation rules are determined in accordance with the provisions of Chapter II of the Royal Decree of 8 October
1976 concerning company financial statements.
2. Special Rules
Formation expenses
Formation expenses and the cost of capital increases are valued at cost and depreciated on a straight-line basis over
a period of five years. Loan expenses, if any, can be capitalized and written off annually in relation to the period of
the loan.
Intangible fixed assets
Intangible fixed assets are shown on the balance sheet at cost. Annual depreciation is applied by the straight-line
method at 20% per year.
Tangible fixed assets
Acquisitions of tangible fixed assets are valued at cost plus additional expenses such as non- deductible VAT.
Depreciation is applied on the basis of the anticipated useful life of the assets concerned.
Depreciation recorded during the year

Accelerated or reducing-balance depreciation is applied with due regard to the tax provisions. Expenditure on conversions, important renewals and improvements is capitalized. Expenditure on repairs, maintenance and replacements that do not significantly extend the economic useful life of the assets concerned is entered as expenses.

Page 87
Financial fixed assets
Participating interests and shares are valued at cost. Additional expenses relating to their acquisition are not capitalized but transferred to the ‘Other financial expenses’ item for the year in which they are incurred. Adjustments
are made if the estimated value of participating interests, shares is lower than their book value and if the reduced
value thus ascertained appears permanent. The estimated value of each participating interest or share is fixed at
the end of each financial year according to one or more criteria. In general the value of the last published balance
sheet is taken into account, unless more significant data is available.
Stocks
Goods for resale are valued at cost calculated by the FIFO method or at market value on the balance sheet date if
lower.
Amounts receivable within one year
Debtors are shown on the balance sheet at nominal value. Fixed-income securities are valued at cost. Adjustments
are made if there is uncertainty regarding all or part of the receivable as to payment of the claim on the due date
or if the market value on the balance sheet date is lower than the nominal or book value.
Short-term investments and cash at bank an in hand
Fixed-income securities and shares are valued at the lower of purchase price or market value.
Deferrals and accruals
Deferrals and accruals are recorded and valued at cost and shown on the balance sheet in the section relating to
the next financial year (costs) or are allocated to the present year (income).
Provisions for liabilities and charges
Provisions for liabilities and charges are made to meet the requirements of caution, integrity and good faith. The
amount of the provisions is decided by the company’s governing body on the basis of a cautious estimate
Foreign currency
Credits, debts and obligations in foreign currency are converted at a fixed exchange rate, which is adjusted monthly. Exchange rate income or charges therefore occur when these are settled. In addition, credits and liabilities in currency on the balance sheet are converted at the closing rate on the balance sheet date. The results of this conversion are recorded:
- if the result is a profit: under "accruals and deferred income" in liabilities
- if the result is a loss: under "other financial expenses" in the income statement.
