Adam Aron explains the 500 million share dilution
“There’s confusion about what this share authorization means”, says Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment.
Adam explains that authorizing more shares doesn’t mean they are all going to float in the market immediately. He expressed that the last time they issued approximately 500 million shares was back in 2013. These shares were put out in the market in the span of several years. The first time they were used was in early 2016 and early 2017. The last time they put more shares in the market was September of 2020.
He explains, “foolish dilution is bad and smart dilution is smart”.
Adam Aron is a CEO that knows how to strategies the use of a dilution in a way that can be a positive development for AMC Entertainment.

Adam Aron comments on AMC short squeeze news
Adam’s focus is better directed on the long-term prospects of AMC Entertainment. Which is appropriate for a CEO to focus on.
He thinks any short squeeze probability and intricacy of share price movement is better left to analysts and retail investors. He’s pro people making their own decisions despite what he thinks.
We can tell Adam is not really allowed to discuss his opinions regarding an AMC short squeeze. His leadership requires him to discuss fundamentals and long-term prosperity.
AMC Entertainment’s message from CEO to analysts prediction $0.01 share price
“I guess if I thought the one penny guys was accurate, I might be selling stock. And I’m not selling stock. Or I might choose to run a different company, but I’m not gonna choose to run a different company. I’m a bull about AMC’s future long-term prospects.”
“I don’t think it’s a good idea to bet against movie theaters, and I certainly don’t think it’s a good idea to bet against AMC, and I’d like to think it’s not a good idea to bet against Adam Aron either”.

Apes Together Strong Documentary

The goal is to capture the story of AMC, the community, and process of how retail investors have come to love this company.
Adam Aron expresses his willingness to properly cooperate with the documentary makers.
“I’m not here today because of the Reddit rally or the Robinhood effect, I’m here for one reason and one reason only. The people who subscribe to your channel, a lot of them own AMC stock. And it’s very important for a company and a management team to talk to his or their shareholders. I just have an enormous appreciation to the shareholder of our company. It’s your company and I work for you. And that’s why I’m here”.
