AMC lost over half a billion

AMC reported a first-quarter loss of $567.2 million, or $1.42 per share, on Thursday afternoon, an improvement from a loss of more than $2 billion in the same quarter a year ago. which was mainly caused by non-monetary losses from the revaluation of the cinema chain of its properties, as the COVID-19 pandemic forced closures around the world. Sales for the quarter were $148.3 million, up from $941.5 million in the first quarter of 2020.

This was expected after AMC released preliminary first-quarter results last week, abandoning a plan to ask investors to approve a potential sale of 500 million additional shares. FactSet said analysts were expecting a loss of $1.34 per share on sales of $148 million, though some of those estimates may not have been updated since last week’s disclosure.

AMC said Thursday that by the end of April, 589 of 593 US theaters and 110 of 357 international theaters it leases or operates in partnership with others have reopened to some extent. Investors and analysts want to know when those halls will be filled enough for AMC’s revenue to rise again to near pre-pandemic levels.
