AMC & Amazon Deal

LCID Ratings by Stock Target Advisor

Shares of AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc (AMC.N) rose by more than 18% on Tuesday, after a report that Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) was considering acquiring the theater chain. The Intersect reported that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos had dispatched investment advisers and top entertainment executives to explore acquisition plans for AMC.

If the acquisition goes ahead, it would be Amazon’s latest move to beef up its entertainment offerings. Last year, the ecommerce giant closed an $8.5 billion deal for MGM, adding the company behind “Rocky” and James Bond to its Prime Video streaming service.

AMC’s shares have gained about 11% this year, giving it a market value of around $2.4 billion. However, the company’s stock was valued at more than $23 billion at the peak of the meme stock rally in June 2021, when it became a favorite of retail investors on Reddit and other social media platforms.

The COVID-19 pandemic and rising costs have made it difficult for movie theaters to attract audiences, even after the lifting of restrictions. People are cutting spending on out-of-home entertainment in favor of essentials like groceries and rent.

An acquisition by Amazon could provide a much-needed boost to AMC’s business, allowing it to tap into the tech giant’s resources and reach. However, it remains to be seen whether the deal will go ahead, and if so, at what price.

Investors in AMC should monitor developments closely and consider the potential impact of the acquisition on the company’s financial performance and long-term prospects. While an acquisition by Amazon could provide a boost in the short term, it also raises questions about the future of the traditional movie theater industry and the impact of streaming on the sector.
