The automotive industry is evolving quickly along several dimensions, perhaps none more dramatic than the development of automated vehicles and the emergence of on-demand, shared mobility platforms. This evolution promises to significantly alter how travelers interact with and their expectations of vehicles. The end result, if current forecasts are correct, will be a transportation system that is more multimodal and less personal-vehicle centric.

Cineplex has been a leader in theatre exhibition in Canada for many years, but market share alone does not ensure success. As the world of entertainment, technology and consumer habits have changed, we have had to change as well in order to remain relevant. We have constantly innovated to improve the guest experience and provide new offerings in our core business area of Filmed Entertainment and Content. In addition, we have embarked upon a diversification strategy to grow in the areas of Media and Amusement and Leisure. I will provide an overview of how Cineplex has navigated the disruption occurring around us in order to continue to position us for long term growth in the future.
