Derivative Litigation Dismissed Against All Reading International Directors

Share:

Reading International, Inc. ("Reading") (NASDAQ:RDI, RDIB)) today
announced that the Nevada trial court dismissed with prejudice all
claims asserted against Reading Directors Guy Adams, Ellen Cotter and
Margaret Cotter by James J. Cotter, Jr., in his purported derivative
litigation in the case of Cotter v. Cotter, et al., Case No.
A-15-719860-B (District Court of the State of Nevada for Clark County).
The District Court granted the summary judgment motions from the bench
on June 19, 2018, and a final order is now being prepared. The
previously announced July 9, 2018 trial date has been vacated.

All claims against Directors Judy Codding, William Gould, Edward L.
Kane, Douglas McEachern and Michael Wrotniak were previously dismissed
with prejudice by the District Court's order dated December 28, 2017.

The dismissal with prejudice of claims against our Directors was entered
by the District Court over the protests of Mr. Cotter, Jr., and it is
anticipated that Mr. Cotter, Jr. will likely appeal the District Court's
decision. Mr. Cotter, Jr. has previously appealed the District Court's
December 28, 2017 decision dismissing the above named directors.

William Gould, Reading's Lead Independent Director, commented, "We are
pleased with the Court's ruling in favor of our Directors, which
represents a positive outcome for our company. With this matter behind
us, Reading remains well-positioned to execute on our strategic plan and
enhance stockholder value."
