AMC Entertainment has been downgraded by debt ranking company S&P Global. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the world’s largest cinema chain has solely six months of money remaining. AMC should increase its capital or see attendance enhance as the corporate struggles by means of the coronavirus pandemic.

AMC within the US and Odeon within the UK shut down their cinemas again in March earlier than some places started to reopen in the summertime.
However, low attendance and a scarcity of blockbuster motion pictures to display screen have made enterprise gradual for film theatres.
In a brand new report, S&P Global argued that AMC “continues to struggle operationally and financially because U.S. attendance remains weak after reopening, additional major theatrical releases are delayed and its cash burn might accelerate now that its theatres are open.”
The debt rankings company identified that smaller capability at cinemas and audiences selecting streaming over risking going out was prone to proceed into 2021.
S&P Global added: “The negative outlook reflects our view that a default, distressed exchange, or redemption appears to be inevitable within six months, absent unanticipated significantly favourable changes in the issuer’s circumstances.”
