AMC shares jump 6.5% premarket on news cinema operator to reduce debt, raises $300 million in new funding

AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc.'s shares (AMC) soared 6.5% in premarket trade Monday, after the owner of the world's biggest cinema chain said it has reached an agreement to reduce its debt by at least $460 million and has secured $300 million in new funding. The company, which has been battered during the coronavirus pandemic as it was forced to close its theaters, said it has amended exchange offer and other agreements to reduce its debt by up to $630 million with holders of 73% of its roughly $2.3 billion in senior subordinated notes supporting an amendment announced late Friday. Separately, the company has also reached agreements to restructure some $600 million of convertible bonds issued in 2018 to Silver Lake. In another liquidity-boosting move, AMC has converted cash interest on new exchange notes for 12 months, and under certain conditions up to 18 months, into payment-in-kind and will be deferred until 2026. The company said that could save $100 million to $200 million of cash in the near term. "This is one of many steps we have taken since March as we navigate through these turbulent coronavirus times, including significantly reducing operating costs and capital expenditures, working with theatre landlords to abate and defer rents, raising $500 million of new public debt in April and developing new health and cleaning protocols with the best global experts to keep our theatres safe," Chief Executive Adam Aron said in a statement. AMC shares have fallen 36.5% in the year to date, while the S&P 500 has fallen 1.4%.
