AMC Accused ofMisrepresentations in its Secondary Public Offering Prospectus

According to the complaint, in late 2016, AMC acquired Carmike Cinemas, Inc. and subsequently held a secondary public offering in February 2017, selling over 21 million shares at a price of $31.50 per share and raising $618 million. Although AMC represented to investors that the integration was running smoothly, the acquisition had taken a significant toll on AMC. In fact, AMC failed to retain Carmike's loyalty program members and experienced a substantial loss in market share when its patrons migrated to competitors that had renovated their theaters. As a result, AMC's capital resources and operating results were negatively impacted. On August 1, 2017, AMC announced disappointing preliminary financial results for Q2 2017, causing AMC's stock to plummet nearly 27%, closing at $15.20 per share on August 2, 2017. AMC's stock currently trades at $14.26, less than half the secondary public offering price.
