On November 30, 2016, AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc completed the acquisition of the outstanding equity of Odeon and UCI Cinemas Holdings Limited (“Odeon”) for $637 million. As of the acquisition date, Odeon operated 242 theaters with 2,243 screens throughout Europe. On December 21, 2016, AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc completed the acquisition of Carmike Cinemas, Inc. (“Carmike”) for $858.2 million. As of the acquisition date, Carmike operated 271 theaters and 2,923 screens located in 41 states across the United States.

The plaintiff claims that the defendants failed to disclose that Carmike’s operations had been experiencing a prolonged period of financial underperformance due to a protracted period of underinvestment in its theaters, that Carmike had experienced a significant loss in market share when its loyal patrons migrated to competitors that had renovated and upgraded their theaters, that AMC was able to retain only a very small number of Carmike’s loyalty program members after the Carmike acquisition, that these issues were then having a material adverse effect on Carmike’s operations and theater attendance and that as a result of defendants’ false statements and/or omissions, the price of AMC common shares was artificially inflated between December 20, 2016 and August 1, 2017, trading above $35 per share.

In addition, the complaint alleges that between December 20, 2016 and August 1, 2017, defendants made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose adverse facts regarding AMC’s business and prospects. Specifically, the complaint alleges that defendants failed to disclose that Carmike’s operations had been experiencing a prolonged period of financial underperformance due to a protracted period of underinvestment in its theaters, that Carmike had experienced a significant loss in market share when its loyal patrons migrated to competitors that had renovated and upgraded their theaters, that AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc was able to retain only a very small number of Carmike’s loyalty program members after the Carmike acquisition, and that these issues were then having a material adverse effect on Carmike’s operations and theater attendance.
