Avatar Exceeds AMC Entertainment CEO’s Box Office Prediction

Adam Aron AMC Entertainment CEO
Business News: Avatar: The Way of Water Exceeds AMC Entertainment CEO’s Expectations.

AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) CEO Adam Aron said his predictions were easily surpassed as Avatar: The Way of Water exceeded $570.3 million domestically.

Adam Aron said on Twitter last week, “Next week, it has a good short of hitting $550 million domestic, $1.8 BILLION worldwide. Those who say movie theatres are an anachronism or dead are wrong, wrong, wrong.”

The CEO says the blockbuster movie could exceed $600 in domestic ticket sales and $1.8 billion globally.

The Avatar sequel’s fifth-week performance means it is now the 13th highest-grossing movie of all time at the U.S. box office, overtaking 2008’s The Dark Knight and 2019’s Lion King remake, according to Box Office Mojo.

While it remains at the same spot as last week in the worldwide all-time rankings, the movie is expected to overtake Spider-Man: No Way Home sometime this week and begin closing in on Avengers: Infinity War and Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens.

Cameron has previously stated that Avatar: The Way Of Water needs to earn around $2 billion just to break even. The sequel’s steep budget however includes the cost of filming Avatar 3 and developing the scripts for a fourth and fifth film.

U.S. Box Office Rankings – Friday to Monday (est.)

  1. Avatar: The Way Of Water (Week 5) — $38.5 million
  2. MEG3N (Week 2) — $21.2 million
  3. Puss in Boots: The Last Wish (Week 4) — $17.3 million
  4. A Man Called Otto (Week 3) — $15 million
  5. Plane (Week 1) — $11.6 million
  6. House Party (Week 1) — $4.4 million
  7. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (Week 10) — $2.6 million

  9. Whitney Houston: I wanna Dance With Somebody (Week 4) — $1.3 million
  10. Waltair Veerayya (Week 1) — $1.2 million

Movie titles continue to bring in millions of dollars despite Wall Street doomsayers short on the industry.

At some point, the narrative has to change.

Sources say Amazon is planning to invest $1 billion per year in the movie theatre industry.

The world’s largest online retailer aims to make between 12 and 15 movies annually that will get a theatrical release.

Amazon is still sorting out this strategy said people who asked not to be identified.

That number of releases puts Amazon on par with major studios such as Paramount Pictures, says Bloomberg.

Streaming Services Aren’t Enough

As “Avatar: The Way of Water” gets closer to the $2 billion mark at the worldwide box office, James Cameron says it’s a reminder that moviegoers still value the theatrical experience in an era of streaming dominance.

“I’m thinking of it in the terms of we’re going back to theaters around the world. They’re even going back to theaters in China where they’re having this big COVID surge. We’re saying as a society, ‘We need this! We need to go to theaters.’ Enough with the streaming already! I’m tired of sitting on my ass. Source: Variety.

The sequel to Johnson’s popular “Knives Out” opened in nearly 700 theaters, the largest release of any Netflix original film to date, 200 of which were AMC Entertainment theatres.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery starring Daniel Craig was released in the U.S. as well as the UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany, and Spain.

The film earned $15 million at the box office but CNBC says the showing could have made $200 million if it had been kept in theatres longer.

Unfortunately for the online streaming platform, hundreds of millions of dollars were left on the table.

Box office analysts say Glass Onion could have earned much higher earnings if Netflix had opted for a traditional wide release of 2,000 to 4,000 theaters.

CNBC stated, “Netflix has backtracked on its previous policies, including by introducing an ad-supported subscription option, leading many to wonder whether the company should rethink its resistance to the traditional Hollywood movie release model as it looks for new ways to grow revenue.

The Rise of The Movie Theatre Industry Is Here

Avatar has AMC Entertainment’s CEO Adam Aron laughing at short sellers who are betting against the company and movie industry as a whole.

Shareholders have been stating for years now that the theatrical movie experience is irreplaceable.

The public continues to prove that while online streaming platforms such as Netflix and Disney+ are convenient, nothing beats the cinema experience.

But I’m curious to hear your thoughts on where you think the movie theatre industry is headed.

AMC CEO Says He Will Not Sell Shares Any Time

Market News: AMC CEO says he will not sell shares.
Market News: AMC CEO says he will not sell shares.

Adam Aron just said on Twitter that he will not be selling AMC shares any time soon.

“Some of you forget that I currently own or will vest in about 3 million AMC shares and 3 million APE preferred units. That is an enormous incentive to do what is best for all AMC shareholders. I work in the best interests of AMC shareholders because I am one – and a big one!”, said the CEO.

Adam Aron made over $40 million between November 2021 to January 2022 when he sold millions of AMC shares while retail investors held.

The CEO has recently been criticized for not tackling the topic of naked shorting and dark pool trading considering AMC Entertainment has been victim to predatory short selling tactics.

However, many shareholders view the CEOs decision to freeze his pay raise this year and announcement to not sell shares as noble.

AMC finished 2022 down -84.65% after it had reached an all-time high of $72 per share the previous year.

The bull market in 2021 helped the movie theatre chain amass such a big following even as we entered a bear market in 2022.

And the apes aren’t leaving.

Where is AMC headed in 2023?

AMC CEO Asks for Pay Freeze as Shares Slide

Adam Aron AMC News
Market News: AMC CEO asks for a pay freeze as shares slide below $4.

AMC CEO Adam Aron announced he will not be receiving a pay raise for the new year.

His decision comes as shares of AMC Entertainment stock slide just under $4 per share.

The movie theatre chain leader said on Twitter that he does not want ‘more’ when shareholders are hurting.

“So, I recommended to the AMC board to red circle and freeze both my target cash and target stock pay for 2023. NO INCREASE.”

And shareholders are cheering the CEO for his noble gesture.

Adam Aron earned $18 million in salary and compensation last year, but he’s come a long way from his 2016 salary of only $10 million.

The CEO was able to capitalize on the ‘meme stock’ surge in 2021 earning $41 million while retail investors held their stock for their lives.

At the time, CFO Sean Goodman had sold all of his shares before receiving more stock from their executive compensation package.

At the time, representatives from AMC declined to comment.

Here’s the latest AMC news.

Adam Aron Becomes Shareholder’s Savior

Market News: Adam Aron CEO Pay Freeze News.
Market News: AMC CEO Pay Freeze News.

“I think that while Adam Aron clearly communicated his intent to liquidate some of his position in AMC shares by year-end (2021), many investors were caught off-guard by the extent to which he sold shares between early November and mid-December,” said Alicia Reese, an analyst at Wedbush.

“Sean Goodman of course already has more shares since he sold in November (2021), and all of the executives will continue to accumulate more shares as part of their compensation packages, but they’re walking a fine line by cashing in on the elevated share price while the retail shareholders have committed to holding at all costs,” she said.

Today, the CEO has forfeited a pay raise for 2023 in both cash and stock.

Many shareholders are happy to hear Adam Aron will be sacrificing his pay raise to make shareholders feel better.

Adam Aron says his motives are pure.

“I try as best as I know how to lead AMC through painful aftermath of this horrid pandemic.”

Many shareholders have made Adam Aron their beloved savior.

This will prove to be beneficial to the company as loyalists become the foundational customers of the movie theatre chain.

Others on the other hand beg to differ.

AMC stock is currently trading at $3.84 with a market cap rounded to $2 billion.

The Latest on APE Stock

APE stock (AMC’s Preferred Equity) has been the topic highlight since its inception earlier this summer.

AMC Entertainment was able to raise several million dollars from the equity to pay down its debt.

The price of the equity has since come down drastically as short sellers piled in forcing share prices to a low of $0.65.

APE stock price today
APE stock price today – APE stock news and updates.

And just as the possibility of the equity merging with AMC is announced, APE share surge more than 75% reaching $1.20.

CEO Adam Aron announced on Twitter today that there will be a shareholder vote to convert APE equity to AMC common shares.

He also commented on the possibility of a 1-for-10 reversal stock split for AMC stock.

It’s the biggest news in the AMC community thus far.

So, why did APE shares rise so much today?

And where did so much trading volume come from?

Retail investors are speculating insider buying triggered the massive price surge and heavy volume.

Others are alleging it’s the company’s way of injecting value back into the equity before APE re-merges with AMC common stock.

The truth is, it’s hard to say.

APE was never intended to be a valuable asset for investors, but more so a valuable asset for AMC Entertainment as a company.

Will APE Shares Keep Rising?

If insiders are injecting the equity with value before shareholders vote for the merge of APE and AMC, then it’s very possible the equity may continue to rise.

As of right now, where the immense amount of volume came from is undetermined.

What’s certain is many shareholders weren’t too happy about the creation of APE in the first place as it created unnecessary loss for shareholders.

Here are the CEO’s comments published on Twitter:

“Also, APEs worked exactly as intended to let us raise needed cash, buy back debt, explore M&A. But a huge discount in APE market price vs common stock must be addressed. We’ll hold a shareholder vote. It’s time to convert APE preferred into AMC common to eliminate that discount.”

APE shares have been massively shorted to cents, AMC stock is now trading below $5, a solution has to be addressed.

And so it has.

Adam Aron is proposing a 1-for-10 reversal stock split where shareholders will get left with 1 share of AMC for every 10 shares they hold in exchange for a higher share price.

The idea is to give shareholders the illusion of a higher share price by reducing the number of shares they hold.

The value of an individual’s portfolio would remain the same amount.

However, if an investor holds 10 shares of AMC, they will convert to 1 share.

If an investor holds 100 shares of AMC, after a 1-for-10 reverse split they will hold 10 shares.

All for the sake of making the value of AMC shares appear much higher.

With AMC currently trading around $4.50, a 1-for-10 reverse stock split would mean the stock will then trade at $45 per share.

Here’s the latest AMC Entertainment News: AMC Cineworld acquisitions cancelled.

AMC’s CEO says talks have been halted with Cineworld lenders relating to the possibility of several acquisitions.

Adam Aron says all talks AMC Entertainment had about acquiring Cineworld/Regal movie theatres are now officially off the table.

“We are disciplined to use our cash or stock ONLY when we are convinced that doing so is in the best interests of AMC shareholders.”

According to the 8K filing, AMC Entertainment planned on using APEs (AMC Preferred Equity) as partial payment for the acquisitions.

AMC Scraps Cineworld Acquisition Deal

Cineworld News | AMC Cineworld News today.
Cineworld News | AMC Cineworld News today.

On Wednesday, Adam Aron released a snippet of the company’s 8K-Filing stating the following:

“AMC participated in discussions with certain of the Lenders (the “Lenders”) of Cineworld regarding a potential strategic acquisition by AMC, through a consensual plan in Cineworld’s ongoing Chapter 11 cases, including following the announcement in the Cineworld Chapter 11 proceedings that the Cineworld debtors were exploring strategic alternatives.

The discussions focused on the acquisition of certain strategic theatre assets of Cineworld in the United States and Europe, which acquisition would be financed, in part, through the issuance by AMC of APEs and debt financing provided by the Lenders, and conditioned upon a liability management exercise with respect to certain indebtedness of AMC.”

“During the course of discussions, the Company did not provide any
confidential or non-public information, analyses, compilations, forecasts, studies or other documents to the Lenders.

A definitive agreement with the Lenders has not been reached regarding the terms of any proposal to be presented to the debtors in the Cineworld cases, and at this time negotiations are not continuing.

While AMC reserves the right to continue to explore the acquisition of value enhancing strategic assets, there can be no assurance that AMC will resume any discussions with the Lenders or, if it were to do so, that it would be able to agree with Lenders or any other party as to the terms of a mutually acceptable proposal.

The Company has provided this statement pursuant to the terms of non-disclosure agreements with certain of the Lenders.”

Shareholder Comments

Most shareholders are on board, but some are wondering why APE would be used as payment when it’s trading this low.

The CEO addressed the falling share price of APE earlier this week with many shareholders still resenting Adam Aron for issuing the equity without shareholder approval.

While many shareholders continue to criticize the CEO for not raising concerns on the heavy short selling of the company, many shareholders still stand closely by Adam Aron’s side.

What does the cancellation of the Cineworld/Regal acquisition mean for AMC Entertainment?

Simply put, the company is waiting for the right opportunities to present themselves.

If there’s one thing Adam Aron has proved it’s that he’s a master at raising cash out of thin air and is precise about where he puts it.

In the past year, cash has been used to upgrade the company’s projectors with state-of-the-art laser technology, invest in their first-ever online merchandising store, all while paying down their debt.

AMC shareholders have been urging CEO Adam Aron to address APE, AMC’s Preferred Equity as shares fall below $1.

APE has taken a nosedive from $7 to the current share price of $0.68.

Retail investors have demanded the CEO to speak out on what’s happening with the share price after bold announcements of a ‘pounce’ earlier this summer.

The CEO has now spoken out on the falling APE share price in a new press release shown below.

Adam Aron on APE Share Price

APE Stock Price

In a new press release by AMC Entertainment, the CEO released the following statement:

“Even though the APE units and our common shares are economically equivalent, it is disappointing that the APE units have since inception consistently traded at a significant discount to the AMC common shares.

While the trading prices of the two securities seem to reflect distinct market and trading dynamics, the APEs are serving precisely the purpose originally intended for them.

At a time when one or more of our competitors have been facing potentially devastating liquidity challenges, by contrast during the past 90 days, AMC has been able to raise $162 million of additional cash through the sale of equity thereby improving our own liquidity position markedly.

In addition, AMC reduced debt for the third time this year, including most recently by buying back debt at a substantial 61% discount and is able to contemplate various opportunities to add theatres to our fleet including just having successfully secured for AMC the attractive former Arclight Boston.”

Adam Aron added, “Our outlook for the industry is positive as we expect the box office will be larger in 2023 than in 2022.

Our liquidity position is strong, as we continue to demonstrate our ability to raise cash, thereby strengthening our balance sheet.

We also continue to enhance our footprint by acquiring superb theatres without significant capital outlays while at the same time exiting under-performing locations.

For so many reasons, we believe the future remains bright for AMC.”

APE Continues to Serve Its Original Purpose

Despite Adam Aron’s disappointment in the share price of APE, he says the equity continues to serve its original purpose to provide liquidity to the company.

APE is down -88.67% since its inception with majority of the float being held by retail investors.

Only 0.18% of institutional investors are currently holding the equity according to a Nasdaq report.

There was tension between shareholders whether to sell or hold the security once it became available in the market due to primarily being a liquidity tool for the company rather than an investment for retail investors.

In October, AMC Entertainment released a statement warning both retail investors and short sellers of the possibility of accrued losses through either the possibility of a short squeeze, or company capitalization.

Earlier in December, Yahoo Finance listed APE as the #1 top shorted stock on their list.

Wall Street Has Decimated APE Stock

APE Stock News
Market News: Here’s the latest on AMC’s Preferred Equity, APE.

Retail investors are angry at regulators for allowing Wall Street to decimate APE stock.

While AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE) was intended for the company to capitalize on, banks, institutions, and short sellers have abused shares to the ground.

The equity was meant to provide AMC Entertainment with liquidity in order to pay down their debt.

While AMC was able to reduce their debt by $106 million due to APE, shares have been shorted from $7 all the way down to $0.81.

APE momentarily made Yahoo Finance’s Top List of Most Shorted Stock.

Shareholders questioned how shorting APE was possible in the first place, failing to recognize that APE is a tradable security just like any other stock.

Faceless influencers within the AMC community led many retail investors to believe that shorting AMC’s Preferred Equity was impossible.

And unfortunately, this perception clouded many people from creating a proper investment strategy or embracing for what was to come.

Let’s discuss it.

Retail Investors Seek to CEO for Answers

AMC and APE shareholders all have one common goal in mind, an AMC short squeeze and an APE short squeeze.

And although many shareholders have been transformed into paying customers, others are looking at AMC CEO Adam Aron for answers.

Loyalists don’t question the CEO and will condemn you for doing so, but if shareholders are still invested in the company, they have every right to yearn for answers.

Adam Aron has successfully maneuvered AMC out of bankruptcy, primarily thanks to its shareholders of course.

He’s utilized Twitter magnificently in a way that no other CEO has ever done so before.

And you can’t help but to admire the business personality in him that can raise cash out of thin air.

Even if it’s from his most loyal followers.

But the CEO has failed to address shareholder concerns on the decimation of APE, or the distribution of APE from Citigroup, who’s been short on the company.

Addressing shareholder concerns is important, whether you agree or not.

Does It Even Matter?

Some of you care about your money, your finances, your investments, and some of you simply don’t.

To some, being part of an embracing community, being known in a community, and embracing the movie theatre industry, but more specifically AMC Entertainment, is more important than monetary gains or financial abundance at this point.

And is that even a bad thing?

You just want to be heard; you want to fight evil in the markets without a care about money.

Or maybe you’re simply in the middle.

AMC Entertainment Introduces New Income Stream with Visa Card

AMC Entertainment just introduced a new income stream through its new AMC Visa card.

Moviegoers will now get a chance to earn rewards points on all AMC Entertainment purchases.

The movie theatre chain currently has a waiting list where the cards will become available in early 2023, according to the official website.

AMC Stubs members who sign up for the waitlist and apply for a card will be entered for a chance to win a trip to attend a red-carpet movie premiere with AMC Theatres CEO Adam Aron.

The strategy aims to increase its revenue by distributing these credit cards amongst avid moviegoers and its most loyal shareholders.

And it looks like many of Adam Aron’s followers on Twitter have already begun to sign up.

If there’s one thing Adam Aron is an expert on, it’s on raising cash for the company.

AMC Entertainment News Today

AMC Entertainment CEO Adam Aron announced on Twitter today that AMC will now be accepting applications for its new Visa card to be distributed in early 2023.

The company has creatively come up with new ideas since its resurrection in 2021 on how to raise capital to pay down their debt.

In November, the company launched its first-ever online merchandise store, selling t-shirts, hoodies, and other AMC branded items to their customers and shareholders.

AMC Entertainment announced a month prior that it had reduced its debt by $106 million and extended its maturities until the year 2027.

The movie theatre company was able to raise cash by capitalizing on its preferred equity (APE).

APE is another genius way the CEO was able to capitalize from his shareholders.

Even now as AMC shareholders continue to buy APE shares, they’re supplying the company with an income stream of its own through a capital pool.

While APE may not be a shareholder incentive, it certainly is for the company.

AMC CEO Says a DRS Will Prevent Shorting

DRS AMC shares
Stock Market News: AMC CEO says Registering AMC Shares prevents shorting.

AMC CEO Adam Aron said during Q3 announcements that by using a DRS, or Direct Registration System, investors could prevent the company stock from being shorted.

“If you direct register your shares, they cannot be shorted”, said the CEO.

Now investors who were once skeptical on DRS suggest this could be the only way to trigger a massive short squeeze event.

Institutions have been able to suppress AMC’s share price through overleveraged shorting in the market.

And unfortunately for retail investors, the real demand for the stock has been hidden for far too long.

Is DRS the strategy to beating Wall Street again?

Let’s discuss it.

Join the newsletter for daily stock and crypto market updates.

What is a DRS?

should you DRS AMC shares?
Should you DRS AMC shares? AMC DRS Reddit.

The Direct Registration System, or DRS, is a system for book-entry ownership.

DRS offers investors and shareholders an alternative from receiving a physical certificate, by allowing the shares to be recorded in the books electronically.

The way AMC shareholders can transfer their shares to a DRS is by contacting their brokers and requesting the transfer directly.

Shares registered through DRS cannot be lent to short-sellers by brokerage firms.

DRS might also be able to expose the fraud that occurs behind the doors of market makers and other financial institutions.

Naked shorting has been a real problem in the finance sector and unfortunately the SEC has not tackled it head on.

It’s very possible DRS kills two birds with one stone.

But I’d love to hear your thoughts on the segment.

Should AMC shareholders DRS their shares?

And do you think it will make a difference?

Shareholders and The Public Are AMC’s Only Hope

AMC Entertainment CEO Adam Aron: Stock Market News + more.

Short and distort campaigns are flooding Twitter after AMC Entertainment beat Q3 earnings.

AMC’s share price tumbled despite the company having beat earnings expectations for Q3 of 2022.

Variety says AMC’s partnership with Zoom is bizarre and Hollywood Reporter is focused on AMC’s $227 million loss ($0.22 loss per share) despite revenue for Q3 being up $968.4 million.

Zacks Consensus Estimate predicted a loss per share of 25 cents, so AMC performed better than expected.

What we’re seeing is that the public alongside AMC shareholders are the only hope for the company.

Mainstream media isn’t willing to give AMC the credit it deserves.

Below are highlights from AMC’s Q3 earnings call.

Join the newsletter for weekly market news and updates on your favorite stock tickers.

AMC Q3 Earnings Highlights

AMC Q3 Earnings
AMC Q3 Earnings Beat – Stock Market News + more.

Here’s a quick look into AMC’s Q3 earnings call.

  • 53 Million guests attended AMC Theatres in Q3, a 33% increase from Q3 of 2021.
  • $1.5 billion in debt financing
  • AMC finished Q3 with just under $900 million in liquidity ($896m in cash).
  • AMC’s Preferred Equity (APE) helped the company raise $37 million in capital to pay down debt.
  • The movie theatre company says market conditions are out of their control when addressing falling share prices.
  • AMC had $500 million of improved and adjusted EBITDA, and an increase of $18.21 per patron.
  • A new AMC credit card is set to be released early next year and retail AMC popcorn will be hitting the shelves soon.
  • The company is striving for positive cash operations by Q4 of 2022.

AMC Entertainment had an overall successful Q3 for 2022.

On the list of the most anticipated movie theatres coming to AMC this year, is Black Adam, which has surpassed $300 million in earnings since its release three weeks ago.

Two other anticipated films coming to AMC theatres in Q4 include Black Panter: Wakanda Forever and Avatar 2.

AMC’s Market Cap is Still Below Its Debt Load

AMC stock Reddit
Wallstreetbets: AMC Stock Reddit.

AMC Entertainment’s current market cap is sitting at $2.88bn, the company has north of $5bn in debt.

The movie theatre chain company has done an incredible job at paying down its debt, although company shareholders and the public are what’s keeping AMC Entertainment afloat.

As long as there are moviegoers and investors feeding the company with liquidity, AMC Entertainment is far from gone like many short sellers would hope.

The public’s eye on the largest movie theatre chain company in the world has not faltered; for them, going to the movies is merely a means of reality going back to normal after the pandemic lockdowns.

And as we saw in Q3 earnings, AMC’s attendees have increased 33% from Q3 of last year, seating more than 53 million guests in Q3 alone.

Shareholders also play a massive role in the success of the century old movie theatre company.

The difference is shareholders are battling short and distort campaigns in a conflict of interest with mainstream media and Wall Street institutions who hope to profit from the possibility of bankruptcy.

And although AMC is no longer on the brink of going bankrupt, Wall Street seems to have a personal vendetta against retail investors who disrupted the flow of their short scheme.
