AMC yields positive results for Q2 2022
AMC Entertainment announced it had its best Q2 in 3 years, up 61% from its previous two years according to CEO Adam Aron.
The company was able to seat more than 59 million guests worldwide in Q2 alone, due to massive titles such as Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness and Top Gun: Maverick.
Top Gun Maverick is currently the highest grossing film this year nearing $1.3 billion at the box office.
In Q2, AMC had $52 million of positive operating cash flow and $107 million positive EBITDA, which is relative to the strength of a company.
The company ended Q2 with $1.18 billion in liquidity, a trend we’ve seen in the past with Q1 of 2022.
AMC announced it had reduced its deferred rent by more than $250 million and plans to reduce it by another $40 million ending the year.
While AMC has become a target for Wall Street firms and journalists, it looks like opposers will continue to eat crow for the time being.
The largest movie theatre chain in the world has become a force to be reckoned with.
AMC issues APE dividend
One of the most exciting news confirmed during AMC’s Q2 earnings call was that of the issue of a new dividend.
Investors holding AMC Entertainment stock by August 19 will be granted a new stock for each AMC share they hold under the stock ticker symbol $APE.
This will be an additional security and will not dilute AMC’s float as it is a separate stock.
The ticker symbol APE stands for ‘AMC Preferred Equity’.
AMC plans to use this currency as a means to pay down debt and raise additional cash.
The new currency will be available to all international AMC shareholders and will be tradable in the market.
So, was AMC’s Q2 earnings what you expected?
