AMC breaks over 120% of records. He raised more money and shareholders and will offer popcorn – Bolsa



AMC breaks over 120% of records.  He raised more money and shareholders and will offer popcorn - Bolsa

Shares in AMC – the world’s largest movie theater chain – soared more than 120% in Wednesday’s session to a record $ 72.62, then lost some speed and eventually gained 95% to $ 62.55, the final all-time high.

Due to the high volatility, trading in the shares was suspended twice during the session on Wall Street.

The AMC bonds were sold by the announcement of the American company that it would reach its new supporters through an initiative called AMC Investor Connect.

The company described this “investor connection” as a way of “direct communication” AMC with a huge base of enthusiasts and individual shareholders.

As a reminder, AMC continues to enjoy the popularity it has won among a group of investors focused on the Reddit platform. So-called “meme stocks,” a group that includes AMC or the game store chain GameStop, have grown significantly since the beginning of the year, with an army of small investors increasingly investing in these actions to punish large investors who have bet on its fall.

The chain also announced today that its small shareholder base has grown to over 3 million owners in recent months.

“Many investors have shown their support for the trust in AMC. We plan to communicate more frequently with these investors and from time to time offer them special benefits in our cinemas, ”CEO Adam Aron said today in a statement quoted by CNN.

These benefits will include free XL popcorn packages for investors watching this summer’s first movie in the AMC room, while other promotions will include special discounts and invitations to movie previews.

Also, the growth of shares is facilitated by the fact that yesterday AMC announced that it had raised $ 230.5 million by selling 8.5 million bonds to Mudrick Capital Management. However, Bloomberg said that immediately after the purchase of the “hedge fund” [fundo de cobertura de risco] sold all shares, taking advantage of the rally and making a significant profit.

The cinema chain is trying to get back to normal after a bad year for the industry in which it operates. The pandemic hit cinemas especially hard, which had to be closed with restrictions and many films had to be delayed. However, Reddit’s army of supporters has allowed it to take over the stock market.

This rise in the stock market has allowed it to achieve a market capitalization – currently at $ 29.67 billion – which no longer matches the Russell 2000 where it is quoted as it is an index for lower-cap listed companies.
