AMC Entertainment will offer as many as 50 million shares as it seeks to avoid bankruptcy, according to a filing with the SEC.
The news follows the movie theatre giant’s 200 million shares offering it filed for earlier this month. It raised $104 million after selling roughly 38 million of 200 million in available shares.
AMC indicated that it needs to obtain additional liquidity until it is able to achieve more normalized levels of operating revenues. In its new founding round, the company is hoping to raise $125 million in fresh capital by selling 50 million shares, to avoid bankruptcy.
AMC needs at least $750 million of additional liquidity to finance cash requirements through 2021, as suggested by the company. It has been exploring several options, including restructuring of debt.
“And in the event of such future liquidation or bankruptcy proceeding, holders of our common stock and other securities would likely suffer a total loss of their investment,” it said in the filing.
