00001898 TO OUR SHAREHOLDERS & EMPLOYEES: The growth and earnings of your Company during the fiscal year ended August 31, 1967 were indeed gratifying. Gross income increased from $114,260,000 in the previous year to $136,765,000 this year, with net income rising from $5,819,000, or $2.94 per share, to $15,755,000, or $8.26 per share. Checks were mailed on November first to share- holders of record on October 18, 1967, covering Loew's first dividend of twenty-five cents per share for the quarter ended August 31, 1967. The Board has announced a split of 2'/s shares=for-one, subject to shareholder approval at our annual meeting on January 11, 1968. Acquisition last February of the Hotel Mark Hopkins in San Francisco brought Loew's hotel total to 12. The Mark Hopkins has been completely refurbished and refurnished from the bottom to "The Top of the Mark." In December, Loew's will open the luxurious 500-room Paradise Island Hotel and Villas in Nassau, Bahamas, and plans to construct a large luxury hotel in downtown Washington, D.C., on a site presently occupied by a Loew's theatre. Your Company is entering the European market with a deluxe 500-room hotel in London's Portman gquare, to be completed in 18 months. In addition, we are surveying opportunities in major cities, both here and abroad. Loew's Hotels, both resort and big-city, enjoy the highest average occupanc-ies and average rates in the industry. At the closing of the fiscal year, Loew's operated 71 thea= tres, including seven new theatres which opened during the past twelve months. We have just acquired 27 fine theatres in southern California and three in Phoenix, Arizona. Your Company plans to add ten new theatres, most of them in shopping center locations, during the current fiscal year. Attendance in Loew's Theatres contin= ues to increase. The land under Loew's Capitol Theatre on Broadway in New York City has been leased to Uris Building Corpora= tion, which will demolish the theatre and erect a 1,700,000 sq. ft. office building. Loew's ownership of the basic lease should enable us to realize between $16,000,000 and $17,000,000 on this property, if we elect to mortgage or dispose of it. Your Company has many theatres and commercial proper- ties in excellent locatipns, many of which are completely free and clear of mortgage debt. It is our intention to carry out a mortgaging program over the next few years. With the addition of mortgage money and cash flow to our present cash and security position, we project having available re- sources approximating $200,000,000 during the next three years. At the opportune time, we intend to use this fund for a major acquisition. Pending the fulfillment of this pro- gram, we are making investments in marketable securities. Our continuing growth in the hotel and movie industry, plus the strength of our position, stimulates our enthusi- asm about the future of Loew's. I express my gratitude for the constant vigor and support of our young and aggressive management group and all of your Company's loyal and dedicated employees. Laurence Alan Tisch Chairman of the Board November 8,1967 t

A REPORT ON LOEW'S HOTELS During the six years since Loew's first hotel (The Summit of New York) opened, the group has grown to 12 hotels and motels and has become one of the world's leading hotel chains. This record has been made possible by the high rate of "repeat" business in all phases of the operations: guest rooms, conventions, banquets and sales meetings. Comfort, service and convenience are prime considera- tions in the management policies of Loew's Hotels. The hotel division continues its planned growth pattern - - - in both the domestic and international fields. DOMESTIC: In February, 1967, Loew's Hotels acquired the famous Hotel Mark Fiopkins atop San Francisco's cele- brated Nob Hill. The 500 guest rooms and suites, meeting and banquet rooms, restaurants, intimate cocktail lounges and lobby have been completely refurbished and refur- nished. "The Top of the Mark" continues as a No. 1 attrac- tion for both residents and visitors. A new 500-room luxury hotel is planned for downtown Washington, D.C., on Pennsylvania Avenue. INTERNATIONAL: The new Paradise Island Hotel and Villas, in the Bahamas, will open in December. It will emerge as one of the loveliest of all tropical resorts. Under construction is a 500-room luxury hotel in London's fashionable West End, on Portman Square. The hotel will house a blending of traditional English com- forts and services along with the newest concepts in American hotel operations. It will be within walking dis- tance of the splendid Bond and Oxford Street shops, Mayfair, Hyde Park, and the Piccadilly theatre and night- life district. Loew's Hotels enjoy active and productive convention, banquet and travel-sales staffs. In addition, sales offices for room accommodations are maintained in 24 domestic and 8 foreign cities. Through each of these offices, imme- diate and confirmed reservations can be made for any Loew's Hotel. Loew's Theatres, nationally, serve as exten- sions of the field sales offices. eGRI0000 A completely new Hotel Mark Hopkins is now truly No. 1 on San Francisco's Nob Hill. ae N i " ZI I e i r r r /~ . a 1 1( ~ ~ . f W NEW YORK CITY AMERICANA 7th Avenue at 52nd Street (2,000 rooms) CITY SQUIRE MOTOR INN 7th Avenue at 51st Street (727 rooms) THE DRAKE Park Avenue at 56th Street (678 rooms) HOWARD JOHNSON'S MO-T-ORLODGE 8th Avenue at 51st Street (300 rooms) LOEW'S MIDTOWN MOTOR INN 8th Avenue at 48th Street (366 rooms) THE REGENCY Park Avanue at 61st Street (500 rooms) THE SUMMIT Lexington Avenue at 51st Street (800 rooms) THE WARWICK Avenue of the Americas at 54th Street (500 rooms) CHICAGO HOTELS AMBASSADOR 1300 N.

Your Company has acquired 27 of the Statewide Circuit's fine theatres in Southern California, and 3 in Phoenix, Arizona. These include such important showplaces as: the Hollywood Paramount, the Beverly, Crest and Picfair in the Los Angeles area, Century 21 in Anaheim, the Titan in Fullerton, and newly completed theatres in San Bernardino and Bakersfield. In addition, the following new Loew's Theatres were completed and are now operating: Loew's Morse Road and Loew's Arlington in Columbus, Ohio; Loew's Lauderhill in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida; Loew's Westchester in Miami, Florida; Loew's Northglenn in Denver, Colorado; Loew's 7 & 27 Drive-In in Toronto; and Loew's at South Shore Mall in Bay Shore, L.I., N.Y.
