NATURE OF OPERATIONS

Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. was incorporated in Delaware on March 31, 2000 (“Cinedigm”, and collectively with its subsidiaries, the “Company”).

The Company is a digital cinema services, software and content marketing and distribution company supporting and capitalizing on the conversion of the exhibition industry from film to digital technology and the accelerating shift in the home entertainment market to digital and video-on-demand services from physical goods such as DVDs.  The Company provides a digital cinema platform that combines technology solutions, financial advice and guidance, and software services to content owners and distributors and to movie exhibitors.  Cinedigm leverages this digital cinema platform with a series of business applications that utilize the platform to capitalize on the new business opportunities created by the transformation of movie theatres into networked entertainment centers.  The two main applications provided by Cinedigm include (i) its end-to-end digital entertainment content acquisition, marketing and distribution business focused on the distribution of alternative content and independent film in theatrical and ancillary home entertainment markets; and (ii) its operational, analytical and transaction processing software applications.  Historically, the conversion of an industry from analog to digital has created new revenue and growth opportunities as well as an opening for new players to emerge to capitalize on this technological shift.

The Company reports its financial results in four primary segments as follows: (1) the first digital cinema deployment (“Phase I Deployment”), (2) the second digital cinema deployment (“Phase II Deployment”), (3) digital cinema services (“Services”) and (4) media content and entertainment (“Content & Entertainment”).  The Phase I Deployment and Phase II Deployment segments are the non-recourse, financing vehicles and administrators for the Company's digital cinema equipment (the “Systems”) installed in movie theatres nationwide.  The Services segment provides services, software and support to the Phase I Deployment and Phase II Deployment segments as well as directly to exhibitors and other third party customers.  Included in these services are asset management services for a specified fee via service agreements with Phase I Deployment and Phase II Deployment as well as third party exhibitors as buyers of their own digital cinema equipment; and software license, maintenance and consulting services to Phase I and Phase II Deployment, various other exhibitors, studios and other content organizations.  These services primarily facilitate the conversion from analog to digital cinema and have positioned the Company at what it believes to be the forefront of a rapidly developing industry relating to the distribution and management of digital cinema and other content to theatres and other remote venues worldwide.  The Content & Entertainment segment, which includes our newly acquired wholly-owned subsidiary New Video Group, Inc. ("New Video") as described below, provides content marketing and distribution services in both theatrical and ancillary home entertainment markets to alternative and independent film content owners and to theatrical exhibitors.

Purchase of New Video Group, Inc.

On April 19, 2012, the Company entered into a stock purchase agreement for the purchase of all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of New Video, an independent home entertainment distributor of quality packaged goods entertainment and digital content that provides distribution services in the DVD, BD, Digital and VOD channels for more than 500 independent rights holders (the “New Video Acquisition”). The Company agreed to pay $10.0 million in cash and 2,525,417 shares of Class A common stock at $1.51 per share, subject to certain transfer restrictions, plus up to an additional $6.0 million in cash or Class A common stock, at the Company’s discretion, if certain business unit financial performance targets are met during the fiscal years ended March 31, 2013, 2014 and 2015. In addition, the Company has agreed to register the resale of the shares of Class A common stock paid as part of the purchase price. The New Video Acquisition was consummated on April 20, 2012. The Company is currently in the process of determining the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed. Merger and acquisition expenses, consisting primarily of professional fees, directly related to the New Video Acquisition totaled $1.9 million, of which $1.3 million was incurred during the three months ended June 30, 2012.

The results of operations of New Video have been included in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations from the date of the acquisition within the Company's Content & Entertainment segment. The total amount of revenues and net income of New Video since the acquisition date that have been included in the condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was approximately $2.3 million and $0.7 million, respectively.

The aggregate purchase price after post-closing adjustments for 100% of the equity of New Video was $17.6 million , net of cash acquired of $6.9 million.
The purchase price has been preliminarily allocated to the identifiable net assets acquired as follows pending management's final valuation of the fair value of the net assets acquired as of the date of acquisition:

$

The preliminary estimated fair value of the accounts receivable acquired was $8,983 . The Company has estimated that all of the accounts receivable will be collected.
Of the $3,469 of intangible assets subject to amortization, $1,913 was assigned to a content library with a useful life of five years, $1,296 was assigned to a favorable lease with a useful life of approximately five years and $260 was assigned to covenants not to compete with a useful life of 2 years. $11,595 was assigned to customer relationships and we are currently evaluating its useful life.

Pro forma Information Related To the Acquisition of the New Video (Unaudited)
The following unaudited supplemental pro forma consolidated summary operating data for the three months ended June 30, 2011 has been prepared by adjusting the historical data as set forth in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended June 30, 2011 to give effect to the acquisition of New Video as if it had occurred at April 1, 2011. As the acquisition of New Video was consummated near the beginning of the current fiscal quarter, the difference between actual operating results and pro forma results for the three months ended June 30, 2012 are not substantially different.

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND CONSOLIDATION

The Company has incurred net losses historically and has an accumulated deficit of $226,285 as of June 30, 2012 . The Company also has significant contractual obligations related to its recourse and non-recourse debt for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013 and beyond. The Company may continue to generate net losses for the foreseeable future. Based on the Company’s cash position at June 30, 2012 , and expected cash flows from operations, management believes that the Company has the ability to meet its obligations through at least June 30 , 2013. The Company has a committed financing facility for additional non-recourse debt capital, primarily to meet equipment requirements related to the Company’s Phase II Deployment. Failure to generate additional revenues, raise additional capital or manage discretionary spending could have an adverse effect

9



on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or liquidity.

The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Cinedigm, Access Digital Media, Inc. (“AccessDM”), Hollywood Software, Inc. d/b/a Cinedigm Software (“Software”), Core Technology Services, Inc. (“Managed Services”) (sold in August 2010), FiberSat Global Services, Inc. d/b/a Cinedigm Satellite and Support Services (“Satellite”), ADM Cinema Corporation (“ADM Cinema”) d/b/a the Pavilion Theatre (certain assets and liabilities sold in May 2011), Christie/AIX, Inc. d/b/a Cinedigm Digital Cinema (“Phase 1 DC”), USM (sold in September 2011), Vistachiara Productions, Inc. f/k/a The Bigger Picture, currently d/b/a Cinedigm Content and Entertainment Group, New Video, Access Digital Cinema Phase 2 Corp. (“Phase 2 DC”), Access Digital Cinema Phase 2 B/AIX Corp. (“Phase 2 B/AIX”) and Cinedigm Digital Funding I, LLC (“CDF I”). Content and Entertainment Group and New Video are together referred to as CEG. AccessDM and Satellite are together referred to as the DMS (the majority of which was sold in November, 2011 and remaining assets of which were sold in May 2012). All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2012, which has been derived from audited financial statements, and the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements were prepared following the interim reporting requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). They do not include all disclosures normally made in financial statements contained in the Form 10-K. In management’s opinion, all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of financial position, the results of operations and cash flows in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for the periods presented have been made. The results of operations for the respective interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012 filed with the SEC on June 18, 2012 (the “Form 10-K”).

INVESTMENT IN NON-CONSOLIDATED ENTITY

The Company indirectly owns 100% of the common equity of CDF2 Holdings, LLC, ("Holdings"), which is a Variable Interest Entity (“VIE”), as defined in Accounting Standards Codification Topic 810 ("ASC 810"), “Consolidation". The Company has determined that it is not the primary beneficiary of Holdings in accordance with ASC 810, and it is accounting for its investment in Holdings under the equity method of accounting. The Company's net investment in Holdings is reflected as “Investment in non-consolidated entity, net" in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. See Note 4 for further discussion.

RECLASSIFICATION

Certain reclassifications, principally for discontinued operations (see Note 3) have been made to the fiscal year 2012 financial statements to conform to the current fiscal year 2013
presentation.

USE OF ESTIMATES

The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Such estimates include the adequacy of accounts receivable reserves, assessment of goodwill and intangible asset impairment and valuation reserve for income taxes, among others. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be “cash equivalents.” The Company maintains bank accounts with major banks, which from time to time may exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s (“FDIC”) insured limits. The Company periodically assesses the financial condition of the institutions and believes that the risk of any loss is minimal.

RESTRICTED AVAILABLE-FOR-SALE INVESTMENTS
In connection with $172,500 of term loans issued in May 2010 (See Note 5), the sale of USM in September 2011 and the sale of the majority of assets of DMS in November 2011 (See Note 3), the Company segregated $9,477 of the combined proceeds received in the transactions into an account to be used with the approval of the 2010 Noteholder either (i) to support an

10



acquisition by the Company; or (ii) to repay the 2010 Note. During the three months ended June 30, 2012, these funds were released from restricted available-for-sale investments and used to finance a portion of the cost of the acquisition of the New Video Acquisition in April 2012 (See Note 1).

ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE

The Company maintains reserves for potential credit losses on accounts receivable. Management reviews the composition of accounts receivable and analyzes historical bad debts, customer concentrations, customer credit worthiness, current economic trends and changes in customer payment patterns to evaluate the adequacy of these reserves. Reserves are recorded primarily on a specific identification basis. Allowance for doubtful accounts amounted to $297 and $257 as of June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012 , respectively.

Accounts receivable, long-term result from up-front activation fees with extended payment terms that are discounted to their present value at prevailing market rates.

RESTRICTED CASH

In connection with the 2010 Term Loans issued in May 2010 (See Note 5), the Company maintains cash restricted for repaying interest on the 2010 Term Loans, as follows:

DEFERRED COSTS

Deferred costs primarily consist of unamortized debt issuance costs which are amortized on a straight-line basis over the term of the respective debt.  The straight-line basis is not materially different from the effective interest method.  

PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT

Property and equipment are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Depreciation expense is recorded using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of the lease term or the estimated useful life of the leasehold improvements. Maintenance and repair costs are charged to expense as incurred. Major renewals, improvements and additions are capitalized.  Upon the sale or other disposition of any property and equipment, the cost and related accumulated depreciation and amortization are removed from the accounts and the gain or loss on disposal is included in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.
 
ACCOUNTING FOR DERIVATIVE ACTIVITIES

Derivative financial instruments are recorded at fair value.  In May 2010, the Company settled the interest rate swap in place with respect to its previous credit facility.  In June 2010, the Company executed three separate interest rate swap agreements (the “Interest Rate Swaps”) to limit the Company’s exposure to changes in interest rates related to the 2010 Term Loans.  Changes in fair value of derivative financial instruments are either recognized in accumulated other comprehensive loss (a component of stockholders' equity (deficit)) or in the condensed consolidated statements of operations depending on whether the derivative qualifies for hedge accounting.  The Company has not sought hedge accounting treatment for these instruments and therefore, changes in the value of its Interest Rate Swaps were recorded in the condensed consolidated statements of operations (See Note 5).

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

The fair value measurement disclosures are grouped into three levels based on valuation factors:
 
Level 1 – quoted prices in active markets for identical investments
Level 2 – other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar investments and market corroborated inputs)
Level 3 – significant unobservable inputs (including the Company’s own assumptions in determining the fair value of investments)

11



 
Assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis use the market approach, where prices and other relevant information are generated by market transactions involving identical or comparable assets or liabilities.

The following tables summarize the levels of fair value measurements of the Company’s financial assets:

Contingent consideration is a liability to the sellers of New Video based upon its business unit financial performance target in each of the fiscal years ended March 31, 2013, 2014 and 2015 (see Note 1). The preliminary estimates of the fair value of the contingent consideration arrangement was estimated by using the current forecast of New Video adjusted ebitda, as defined by the New Video stock purchase agreement. That measure is based on significant inputs that are not observable in the market, which are considered Level 3 inputs.
The following summarized changes in contingent consideration liabilities in during the three months ended June 30, 2012:
Balance at March 31, 2012

Key assumptions include a discount rate of 8 percent and that New Video will achieve 100% of its business unit financial performance target in each of the three fiscal years described above, resulting in a payment of 75% of the maximum contingent consideration amount described in Note 1. As of June 30, 2012, the amount recognized for the contingent consideration arrangements, the range of outcomes, and the assumptions used to develop the estimated had not changed.

IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED AND FINITE-LIVED ASSETS

The Company reviews the recoverability of its long-lived assets and finite-lived intangible assets, when events or conditions exist that indicate a possible impairment exists. The assessment for recoverability is based primarily on the Company’s ability to recover the carrying value of its long-lived and finite-lived assets from expected future undiscounted net cash flows. If the total of expected future undiscounted net cash flows is less than the total carrying value of the assets the asset is deemed not to be recoverable and possibly impaired.  The Company then estimates the fair value of the asset to determine whether an impairment loss should be recognized.  An impairment loss will be recognized if the difference between the fair value and the carrying value of the asset exceeds its fair value.  Fair value is determined by computing the expected future discounted cash flows.  During the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 , no impairment charge from continuing operations for long-lived assets was recorded.

GOODWILL AND INDEFINITE-LIVED INTANGIBLE ASSETS

Goodwill is the excess of the purchase price paid over the fair value of the net assets of an acquired business. Goodwill and

12



intangible assets with indefinite lives are not amortized; rather, they are tested for impairment on at least an annual basis.

The Company’s process of evaluating goodwill for impairment involves the determination of fair value of its goodwill reporting units: Software and CEG.  The Company conducts its annual goodwill impairment analysis during the fourth quarter of each fiscal year, measured as of March 31, unless triggering events occur which require goodwill to be tested at another date. As discussed in Note 1, goodwill increased as a result of the New Video Acquisition. During the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 , no impairment charge was recorded for goodwill related to the Company's continuing operations.

For further details on the Company's process for evaluating goodwill for impairment, refer to the Form 10-K. Information related to the goodwill allocated to the Company is detailed below:

REVENUE RECOGNITION

Phase I Deployment and Phase II Deployment

Virtual print fees (“VPFs”) are earned pursuant to contracts with movie studios and distributors, whereby amounts are payable by a studio to Phase 1 DC, CDF I and to Phase 2 DC, when movies distributed by the studio are displayed on screens utilizing the Company’s Systems installed in movie theatres.  VPFs are earned and payable to Phase 1 DC and CDF I based on a defined fee schedule with a reduced VPF rate year over year until the sixth year at which point the VPF rate remains unchanged through the tenth year.  One VPF is payable for every digital title displayed per System. The amount of VPF revenue is dependent on the number of movie titles released and displayed using the Systems in any given accounting period. VPF revenue is recognized in the period in which the digital title first plays on a System for general audience viewing in a digitally-equipped movie theatre, as Phase 1 DC’s, CDF I’s and Phase 2 DC’s performance obligations have been substantially met at that time.

Phase 2 DC’s agreements with distributors require the payment of VPFs, according to a defined fee schedule, for ten years from the date each system is installed; however, Phase 2 DC may no longer collect VPFs once “cost recoupment,” as defined in the agreements, is achieved.  Cost recoupment will occur once the cumulative VPFs and other cash receipts collected by Phase 2 DC have equaled the total of all cash outflows, including the purchase price of all Systems, all financing costs, all “overhead and ongoing costs”, as defined, and including the Company’s service fees, subject to maximum agreed upon amounts during the three-year rollout period and thereafter, plus a compounded return on any billed but unpaid overhead and ongoing costs, of 15% per year.  Further, if cost recoupment occurs before the end of the eighth contract year, a one-time “cost recoupment bonus” is payable by the studios to the Company.  Any other cash flows, net of expenses, received by Phase 2 DC following the achievement of cost recoupment are required to be returned to the distributors on a pro-rata basis. At this time, the Company cannot estimate the timing or probability of the achievement of cost recoupment.

Alternative content fees (“ACFs”) are earned pursuant to contracts with movie exhibitors, whereby amounts are payable to Phase 1 DC, CDF I and to Phase 2 DC, generally either a fixed amount or as a percentage of the applicable box office revenue derived from the exhibitor’s showing of content other than feature films, such as concerts and sporting events (typically referred to as “alternative content”). ACF revenue is recognized in the period in which the alternative content first opens for audience viewing.

Revenues are deferred for up front exhibitor contributions and are recognized over the cost recoupment period, which is a period of ten years.

Services

For software multi-element licensing arrangements that do not require significant production, modification or customization of the licensed software, revenue is recognized for the various elements as follows: revenue for the licensed software element is recognized upon delivery and acceptance of the licensed software product, as that represents the culmination of the earnings

13



process and the Company has no further obligations to the customer, relative to the software license. Revenue earned from consulting services is recognized upon the performance and completion of these services. Revenue earned from annual software maintenance is recognized ratably over the maintenance term (typically one year).

Revenue is deferred in cases where:  (1) a portion or the entire contract amount cannot be recognized as revenue, due to non-delivery or pre-acceptance of licensed software or custom programming, (2) uncompleted implementation of application service provider arrangements (“ASP Service”), or (3) unexpired pro-rata periods of maintenance, minimum ASP Service fees or website subscription fees. As license fees, maintenance fees, minimum ASP Service fees and website subscription fees are often paid in advance, a portion of this revenue is deferred until the contract ends. Such amounts are classified as deferred revenue and are recognized as earned revenue in accordance with the Company’s revenue recognition policies described above.

Exhibitors who will purchase and own Systems using their own financing in the Phase II Deployment, will pay an upfront activation fee that is generally $2 thousand per screen to the Company (the “Exhibitor-Buyer Structure”).  These upfront activation fees are recognized in the period in which these exhibitor owned Systems are ready for content, as the Company has no further obligations to the customer, and are generally paid quarterly from VPF revenues over approximately one year.  Additionally, the Company recognizes activation fee revenue of between $1 thousand and $2 thousand on Phase 2 DC Systems and for Systems installed by Holdings upon installation and are generally collected upfront upon installation. The Company will then manage the billing and collection of VPFs and will remit all VPFs collected to the exhibitors, less an administrative fee that will approximate up to 10% of the VPFs collected.

The administrative fee related to the Phase I Deployment approximates 5% of the VPFs collected. This administrative fee is recognized in the period in which the billing of VPFs occurs, as performance obligations have been substantially met at that time.

Content & Entertainment

CEG earns fees for the distribution of content in the home entertainment markets via several distribution channels, including digital, video-on-demand, and physical goods (e.g. DVD and Blu-Ray Disc). The fee rate earned by the Company varies depending upon the nature of the agreements with the platform and content providers. Generally, revenues are recognized at the availability date of the content for a subscription digital platform, at the time of shipment for physical goods, or point-of-sale for transactional and video-on-demand services.
CEG also has contracts for the theatrical distribution of third party feature films and alternative content. CEG’s distribution fee revenue and CEG's participation in box office receipts is recognized at the time a feature film and alternative content is viewed. CEG has the right to receive or bill a portion of the theatrical distribution fee in advance of the exhibition date, and therefore such amount is recorded as a receivable at the time of execution, and all related distribution revenue is deferred until the third party feature films’ or alternative content’s theatrical release date.

DIRECT OPERATING COSTS

Direct operating costs consist of facility operating costs such as rent, utilities, real estate taxes, repairs and maintenance, insurance and other related expenses, direct personnel costs, and amortization of capitalized software development costs.

STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

During the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 , the Company recorded employee stock-based compensation from continuing operations expense of $486 and $454 , respectively.  

The weighted-average grant-date fair value of options granted during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 was $0.93 and $1.26 , respectively.  There were no stock options exercised during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 .
 
The Company estimated the fair value of stock options at the date of each grant using a Black-Scholes option valuation model with the following assumptions:

The risk-free interest rate used in the Black-Scholes option pricing model for options granted under the Company’s stock option plan awards is the historical yield on U.S. Treasury securities with equivalent remaining lives. The Company does not currently anticipate paying any cash dividends on common stock in the foreseeable future. Consequently, an expected dividend yield of zero is used in the Black-Scholes option pricing model.  The Company estimates the expected life of options granted under the Company’s stock option plans using both exercise behavior and post-vesting termination behavior, as well as consideration of outstanding options.   The Company estimates expected volatility for options granted under the Company’s stock option plans based on a measure of historical volatility in the trading market for the Company’s common stock.

Employee stock-based compensation expense related to the Company’s stock-based awards was as follows:

NET LOSS PER SHARE

Basic and diluted net loss per common share has been calculated as follows:

Basic and diluted net loss per common share =
Net loss + preferred dividends
 
Weighted average number of common stock
 outstanding during the period

Shares issued and any shares that are reacquired during the period are weighted for the portion of the period that they are outstanding.

The Company incurred net losses for each of the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 and, therefore, the impact of dilutive potential common shares from outstanding stock options and warrants, totaling 20,765,640 shares and 23,454,240 shares as of June 30, 2012 and 2011 , respectively, were excluded from the computation as it would be anti-dilutive.

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

Recently Adopted Standards
In May 2011, the FASB issued a new accounting standard update, which amends the fair value measurement guidance and includes some enhanced disclosure requirements. The most significant change in disclosures is an expansion of the information required for Level 3 measurements based on unobservable inputs. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011. The Company adopted this standard on April 1, 2012. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements and disclosures.

In June 2011, FASB codified guidance related to the presentation of comprehensive income. The guidance requires entities to present net income and other comprehensive income in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate, but consecutive, statements. The new guidance does not change the components that are recognized in net income and the components that are recognized in other comprehensive income. Currently, the Company presents comprehensive income in its statements of stockholders' deficit in the Form 10-K. The provisions of this guidance are effective for the

15



Company beginning April 1, 2012 and are required to be applied retroactively.

Recently Issued Standards
In July 2012, the FASB issued a new accounting standard update, which amends guidance allowing an entity to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events and circumstances indicates that it is more likely than not that the indefinite – lived intangible asset is impaired. This assessment should be used as a basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform the quantitative impairment test. An entity would not be required to calculate the fair value of the intangible asset and perform the quantitative test unless the entity determines, based upon its qualitative assessment, that it is more likely than not that its fair value is less than its carrying value. The update provides further guidance of events and circumstances that an entity should consider in determining whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of an indefinite – lived intangible asset is less than its carrying amount. The update also allows an entity the option to bypass the qualitative assessment for any indefinite-lived intangible asset in any period and proceed directly to performing the quantitative impairment test. An entity will be able to resume performing the qualitative assessment in any subsequent period. This update is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after September 15, 2012, with early adoption permitted. The Company is in the process of analyzing the update and does not expect the adoption of this guidance to have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

ASSETS HELD FOR SALE AND DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

USM had contracts with exhibitors to display pre-show advertisements on their screens, in exchange for certain fees paid to the exhibitors. USM then contracted with businesses of various types to place their advertisements in select theatre locations, designed the advertisement, and placed it on-screen for specific periods of time, generally ranging from three to twelve months.  The Company determined that this business did not meet its strategic plan and sold USM in September 2011 for $6,000, before transaction expenses of $226, and recognized a gain on the sale of $846 for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012. USM was formerly part of the Content & Entertainment segment.

In November 2011, pursuant to an asset purchase agreement, the Company sold to a third party the majority of assets of Cinedigm's physical and electronic distribution business and trailer distribution business for $1,000 before transaction expenses of $277, and recognized a loss on the sale of $4,606 for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012. Concurrently on completion of this transaction, the Company classified $200 of net assets of its non-theatrical DMS business which were not sold as part of this transaction as held for sale and classified these assets as discontinued operations which the Company intends to sell within the next twelve months. These DMS non-theatrical assets were written down in value by $800 during the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012. DMS was formerly part of the Services segment.

In May 2012, pursuant to an asset purchase agreement, the Company sold to a third party the remaining net assets of its non-theatrical DMS business for $200. The Company did not recognize a gain or loss on the sale during the three months ended June 30, 2012. Subsequent to June 30, 2012, in connection with the sale and in consideration of other payments made by the Company on behalf of the buyer, the Company received a secured promissory note from the third party for $260. The promissory note, which bears interest of 5% per annum, is due on October 19, 2012.

With the sale of the remaining net assets of its non-theatrical DMS business, there are no assets or liabilities held for sale as of June 30, 2012. The assets and liabilities held for sale as of March 31, 2012 were comprised of the following:

4. INVESTMENT IN NON-CONSOLIDATED ENTITY
 
Investment in Holdings
 
As discussed in Note 2, Holdings, a subsidiary of Access Digital Cinema Phase 2, Corp. ("ADCP2"), which is wholly owned by the Company, and its wholly owned limited liability company, Cinedigm Digital Funding 2, LLC was created for the purpose of capitalizing on the conversion of the exhibition industry from film to digital technology. Holdings assists customers in procuring the necessary equipment in the conversion of their Systems by providing the necessary financing, equipment, installation and related ongoing services. Holdings is a VIE, as defined in ASC 810, indirectly wholly owned by the Company. ASC 810 requires the consolidation of VIEs by an entity that has a controlling financial interest in the VIE which entity is thereby defined as the primary beneficiary of the VIE. To be a primary beneficiary, an entity must have the power to direct the activities of a VIE that most significantly impact the VIE's economic performance, among other factors. Although Holdings is indirectly wholly owned by the Company, a third party, which also has a variable interest in Holdings, along with an independent third party manager and the Company must mutually approve all business activities and transactions that significantly impact Holdings' economic performance. The Company has thus assessed its variable interests in Holdings and determined that it is not the primary beneficiary of Holdings and therefore accounts for its investment in Holdings under the equity method of accounting. In completing our assessment, the Company identified the activities that it considers most significant to the economic performance of Holdings and determined that we not have the power to direct those activities. As a result, Holdings' financial position and results of operations are not consolidated in the financial position and results of operations of the Company.
The Company's maximum exposure to loss as it relates to Holdings as of June 30, 2012 includes:

The investment in the equity of Holdings of $1,521 ; and
Accounts receivable due from Holdings for service fees under its master service agreement of $831 .

During the three months ended June 30, 2012 , the Company received $424 in aggregate revenues from Holdings, included in revenues on the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Non-recourse debt is generally defined as debt whereby the lenders’ sole recourse with respect to defaults by the Company is limited to the value of the asset collateralized by the debt.  The 2010 Term Loans are not guaranteed by the Company or its other subsidiaries, other than Phase 1 DC. The KBC Facilities, the P2 Vendor Note and the P2 Exhibitor Notes are not guaranteed by the Company or its other subsidiaries, other than Phase 2 DC.

In August 2009, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Sageview Purchase Agreement”) with an affiliate of Sageview Capital LP (“Sageview” or the “Purchaser”) pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue a Senior Secured Note (the “2009 Note”) in the aggregate principal amount of $75,000 and warrants (the “Sageview Warrants”) to purchase 16,000,000 shares of its Class A Common Stock (the “2009 Private Placement”).  The 2009 Note was later amended and restated on May 6, 2010 (as so amended and restated, the “2010 Note”).  The balance of the 2010 Note, net of the discount associated with the issuance of the Sageview Warrants and the interest of 8% per annum on the 2010 Note to be accrued as an increase in the aggregate principal amount of the 2010 Note (“PIK Interest”), was as follows:

In May 2010, CDF I, an indirectly wholly-owned, special purpose, non-recourse subsidiary of the Company, formed in April 2010, entered into a definitive credit agreement (the “2010 Credit Agreement”) with Société Générale, New York Branch (“SocGen”), as co-administrative agent, paying agent for the lenders party thereto and certain other secured parties and subsequently as collateral agent.  Pursuant to the 2010 Credit Agreement, CDF I borrowed term loans (the “2010 Term Loans”) in the principal amount of $172,500.  These 2010 Term Loans are non-recourse to the Company.  The proceeds of the 2010 Term Loans were used by CDF I to pay all costs, fees and expenses relating to the transaction and to pay $157,456 to Phase 1 DC, as part of the consideration for the acquisition by CDF I of all of the assets and liabilities of Phase 1 DC pursuant to a Sale and Contribution Agreement between CDF I and Phase 1 DC.  Phase 1 DC acquired all of the outstanding membership interests in CDF I pursuant to this Sale and Contribution Agreement.  Phase 1 DC, in turn, extinguished all of its outstanding obligations

with respect to a credit facility with General Electric Capital Corporation and the $9,600 vendor financing obtained previously in August 2007, and its intercompany obligations owed to the Company.   Under the 2010 Credit Agreement, each of the 2010 Term Loans will bear interest, at the option of CDF I and subject to certain conditions, based on the base rate (generally, the bank prime rate) plus a margin of 2.50% or the Eurodollar rate (subject to a floor of 1.75%), plus a margin of 3.50%.  All collections and revenues of CDF I are deposited into special blocked accounts. These amounts are included in cash and cash equivalents in the condensed consolidated balance sheets and are only available to pay certain operating expenses, principal, interest, fees, costs and expenses relating to the 2010 Credit Agreement according to certain designated priorities, which totaled $7,555 and $8,447  as of June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012 , respectively.  On a quarterly basis, if funds remain after the payment of all such amounts, they will be applied to prepay the 2010 Term Loans.  After certain conditions are met, CDF I may use up to 50% of the remaining funds to pay dividends or distributions to Phase 1 DC.  The Company also set up a debt service fund under the 2010 Credit Agreement for future principal and interest payments, classified as restricted cash of $5,751 as of both June 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012 .

The 2010 Term Loans mature and must be paid in full by April 29, 2016.  In addition, CDF I may prepay the 2010 Term Loans, without premium or penalty, in whole or in part, subject to paying certain breakage costs, if applicable.  The 2010 Credit Agreement also requires each of CDF I’s existing and future direct and indirect domestic subsidiaries (the "Guarantors") to guarantee, under a Guaranty and Security  Agreement dated as of May 6, 2010 by and among CDF I, the Guarantors and SocGen (the “Guaranty and Security Agreement”), the obligations under the 2010 Credit Agreement, and all such obligations to be secured by a first priority perfected security interest in all of the collective assets of CDF I and the Guarantors, including real estate owned or leased, and all capital stock or other equity interests in Phase 1 DC, CDF I and CDF I’s subsidiaries.  In connection with the 2010 Credit Agreement, AccessDM, the direct parent of Phase 1 DC, entered into a pledge agreement dated as of May 6, 2010 in favor of SocGen (the “ADM Pledge Agreement”) pursuant to which AccessDM pledged to SocGen all of the outstanding shares of common stock of Phase 1 DC, and Phase 1 DC entered into a pledge agreement dated as of May 6, 2010 in favor of SocGen (the “Phase 1 DC Pledge Agreement”) pursuant to which Phase 1 DC pledged to SocGen all of the outstanding membership interests of CDF I.  The 2010 Credit Agreement contains customary representations, warranties, affirmative covenants, negative covenants and events of default, as well as conditions to borrowings.  The balance of the 2010 Term Loans, net of the original issue discount, was as follows:

In June 2010, CDF I executed the three separate Interest Rate Swaps with counterparties for a total notional amount of approximately 66.67% of the amounts to be outstanding at June 15, 2011 under the 2010 Term Loans or an initial amount of $100,000. Under the Interest Rate Swaps, CDF I will effectively pay a fixed rate of 2.16%, to guard against CDF I’s exposure to increases in the variable interest rate under the 2010 Term Loans. SocGen arranged the transaction, which took effect commencing June 15, 2011  as required by the 2010 Term Loans and will remain in effect until at least June 15, 2013.  As principal repayments of the 2010 Term Loans occur, the notional amount will decrease by a pro rata amount, such that approximately $80,000 of the remaining principal amount will be covered by the Interest Rate Swaps at any time. The Company has not sought hedge accounting and therefore, changes in the value of its Interest Rate Swaps will be recorded in the condensed consolidated statements of operations (see Note 2).

OVERVIEW

Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. was incorporated in Delaware on March 31, 2000 (“Cinedigm”, and collectively with its subsidiaries, the “Company”).

The Company is a digital cinema services, software and content marketing and distribution company supporting and capitalizing on the conversion of the exhibition industry from film to digital technology and the accelerating shift in the home entertainment market to digital and video-on-demand services from physical goods such as DVDs.  The Company provides a digital cinema platform that combines technology solutions, financial advice and guidance, and software services to content owners and distributors and to movie exhibitors.  Cinedigm leverages this digital cinema platform with a series of business applications that utilize the platform to capitalize on the new business opportunities created by the transformation of movie theatres into networked entertainment centers.  The two main applications provided by Cinedigm include (i) its end-to-end digital entertainment content acquisition, marketing and distribution business focused on the distribution of alternative content and independent film in theatrical and ancillary home entertainment markets; and (ii) its operational, analytical and transaction processing software applications.  Historically, the conversion of an industry from analog to digital has created new revenue and growth opportunities as well as an opening for new players to emerge to capitalize on this technological shift.

The Company reports its financial results in four primary segments as follows: (1) the first digital cinema deployment (“Phase I Deployment”), (2) the second digital cinema deployment (“Phase II Deployment”), (3) digital cinema services (“Services”) and (4) media content and entertainment (“Content & Entertainment”).  The Phase I Deployment and Phase II Deployment segments are the non-recourse, financing vehicles and administrators for the Company's digital cinema equipment (the “Systems”) installed in movie theatres nationwide.  The Services segment provides services, software and support to the Phase I Deployment and Phase II Deployment segments as well as directly to exhibitors and other third party customers.  Included in these services are asset management services for a specified fee via service agreements with Phase I Deployment and Phase II Deployment as well as third party exhibitors as buyers of their own digital cinema equipment; and software license, maintenance and consulting services to Phase I and Phase II Deployment, various other exhibitors, studios and other content organizations.  These services primarily facilitate the conversion from analog to digital cinema and have positioned the Company at what it believes to be the forefront of a rapidly developing industry relating to the distribution and management of digital cinema and other content to theatres and other remote venues worldwide.  The Content & Entertainment segment, which includes our newly acquired wholly-owned subsidiary New Video Group, Inc. ("New Video") as described below, provides content marketing and distribution services in both theatrical and ancillary home entertainment markets to alternative and independent film content owners and to theatrical exhibitors.

In April 2012, the Company issued 7,857,143 shares of Class A common stock at a public offering price of $1.40 per share, less stock issuance fees and expenses of approximately $1.0 million, resulting in net proceeds to the Company of $10.0 million.

On April 19, 2012, the Company entered into a stock purchase agreement for the purchase of all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of New Video Group, Inc. (“New Video”), an independent home entertainment distributor of quality packaged goods entertainment and digital content that provides distribution services in the DVD, BD, Digital and VOD channels for more than 500 independent rights holders (the “New Video Acquisition”). The Company agreed to pay $10.0 million in cash and 2,525,417 shares of Class A common stock at $1.51 per share, subject to certain transfer restrictions, plus up to an additional $6.0 million in cash or Class A common stock, at the Company’s discretion, if certain business unit financial
performance targets are met during the fiscal years ended March 31, 2013, 2014 and 2015. In addition, the Company has agreed to register the resale of the shares of Class A common stock paid as part of the purchase price. The New Video Acquisition was consummated on April 20, 2012. The Company is currently in the process of determining the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed. Merger and acquisition expenses, consisting primarily of professional fees, directly related to the New Video Acquisition totaled $1.9 million, of which $1.3 million was incurred during the three months ended June 30, 2012.

The following organizational chart provides a graphic representation of our business and our four reporting segments:
 
We have incurred consolidated net losses, including the results of our non-recourse deployment subsidiaries, of $5,152 and $6,393 during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 , respectively, and we have an accumulated deficit of $226,285 as of June 30, 2012 . Included in our consolidated net losses were $284 and $2,369 during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 , respectively, of losses attributed to discontinued operations. We also have significant contractual obligations related to our debt for the remainder of the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013 and beyond. We may continue generating consolidated net losses, including our non-recourse deployment subsidiaries, for the foreseeable future. Based on our cash position at June 30, 2012, and expected cash flows from operations, we believe that we have the ability to meet our obligations through at least June 30, 2013. Failure to generate additional revenues, raise additional capital or manage discretionary spending could have an adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations or liquidity.

Revenues increased $2.9 million or 16% during the three months ended June 30, 2012 due to the impact of the consolidation of revenues in Content and Entertainment from the New Video acquisition offsetting a modest decrease in deployment revenues. Deployment revenues declined modestly due to movie release timing impacts as the three months ended June 30, 2011 results were bolstered by the opening of major tent pole release on the final day of the prior year quarter.  The $0.6 million increase in revenues in the Phase II Deployment segment was due to an increase in the number of Phase 2 DC's financed Systems installed and ready for content to 2,079 at June 30, 2012 from 874 at June 30, 2011 . Non-deployment revenues grew 99% period over period inclusive of New Video and 15% period on period assuming New Video had been included within the three months ended June 30, 2012 operating results. 
The $0.9 million , or 29% , increase in revenues in the Services segment was primarily due to (i) increased digital cinema servicing fees as 644 Phase 2 DC Cinedigm-Financed and Exhibitor-Buyer Structure Systems were installed during the three months ended June 30, 2012 and a total of 6,253 installed Phase 2 Systems were generating service fees in contrast to 2,829 Phase 2 Systems at June 30, 2011; and (ii) a 6% increase in Software license fee and maintenance revenues due to the previously described increase in Phase 2 Systems deployed as well as an increase in license and maintenance fees from other software customers. We expect continued growth in services from (i) continued deployments from our current 825 screen backlog as well as from new exhibitor customer signings as we enter the final 3 months of the contractual digital cinema deployment period; (ii) additional revenues from recently signed software customers upon installation in the remainder of this fiscal year and next fiscal year; and (iii) continued growth in software and cinema services from our strong sales pipeline.
 
As of June 30, 2012 Cinedigm provides its digital cinema services through both its Phase II deployment subsidiary and third party Exhibitor-Buyer Structure customers to a total of 6,253 Phase 2 DC screens in comparison to 2,829 at June 30, 2011 and 5,609 at March 31, 2012 . Cinedigm also services an additional 3,724 screens in its Phase I deployment subsidiary as of June 30, 2012. We will deploy additional Phase 2 DC Systems under various non-recourse credit facility commitments and will receive fees through the Exhibitor-Buyer Structure and CDF2 Holdings, LLC, ("Holdings").
 
The CEG business expanded significantly to revenues of $2.8 million due to the acquisition of New Video which was completed on April 20, 2012 during the first quarter of the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013. Total CEG revenues were flat, period over period, inclusive of New Video in both periods. CEG will continue its historical fee-for-service theatrical releasing efforts (Indie Direct) as well as expand the New Video ancillary market distribution efforts of distributing both movies and television entertainment content into digital, video on demand and physical goods (DVDs and Blue Ray). CEG will utilize the combined resources of its existing theatrical releasing infrastructure and the New Video home entertainment distribution capabilities to acquire the North American distribution rights in all media for independent films as well as to launch several programmatic alternative content channels. During the three months ended June 30, 2012, CEG has acquired the distribution rights to two additional independent films and ended the quarter with four independent films acquired. CEG subsequently acquired a fifth independent film in July 2012 and has an active acquisition pipeline. In addition, CEG theatrically released its first movie from this slate, The Invisible War, in June 2012. CEG recognized modest theatrical revenues in this quarter as the title will not be released into ancillary markets until September 2012. Based upon ancillary revenue pre-sales, CEG will be profitable on this title. Future releases are expected in our third and fourth quarters during the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013.

Direct operating expenses increased by 53% due to the consolidation of New Video and the resulting 99% total non-deployment revenue growth.  Excluding the impact of the purchase of New Video, direct operating costs increased by $0.4 million from the three months ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in direct operating costs in the Phase I and Phase II Deployment segments was primarily due to modest decreases in property taxes and insurance incurred on deployed Systems. The increase in the Services segment was primarily related to (i) additional administrative and financial personnel required to service our growing Phase 2 screens; and (ii) additional personnel costs to support the software development requirements of our current and new customers as well as new product development efforts.  The increase in the Content & Entertainment segment was directly related to our acquisition of New Video along with a large indie direct fee for service movie release. In addition, we incurred approximately $260 of “J curve” expenses related to advances and marketing for movie releases during the three months ended June 30, 2012 that we expect to be offset by revenues in future quarters from ancillary home entertainment revenue streams. In accordance with GAAP, Cinedigm must recognize its upfront content acquisition and marketing expenses at the time of a theatrical release of a movie. We expect to recover those expenses as well as earn our fee based profits over the ensuing 12-36 months from revenues earned on the distribution of the movie in the ancillary home entertainment markets. This timing difference creates a “J-Curve” and will continue in future periods as we increase our distribution activities and we will also experience an increase in direct operating expenses corresponding with additional revenue growth.
