The class action, captioned Reynolds v. IMAX Corp., et al., 06-cv-6693, is pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. The class action is brought against defendants IMAX, Richard L. Gelfond, Bradley J. Wechsler and Francis T. Joyce ("Defendants").

The Complaint alleges that Defendants violated the federal securities laws by issuing a series of material misrepresentations in its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and press releases. According to the Complaint, Defendants failed to disclose that: (1) IMAX's financial results including its revenue recognition were materially misrepresented; (2) IMAX lacked adequate internal controls; and (3) IMAX's financial statements were presented in violation of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. The Complaint alleges that Defendants inflated IMAX's financial results in a failed attempt to attract a buyer or merger partner for the Company.

On August 9, 2006, IMAX announced that it was responding to an informal inquiry from the SEC regarding the Company's revenue recognition. IMAX's share price fell by 40.6% or $3.91 in reaction to this news.
