On February 9, 2017, AMC filed its prospectus with the SEC for the sale of approximately 21.9 million shares at $31.50 per share. The complaint charges defendants with failing to inform investors of material adverse known trends in the Company’s previously acquired Carmike Cinemas business.
On August 1, 2017 after the market closed, defendants reported much worse than expected financial results and highlighted Carmike’s poor performance as a major contributor to AMC’s losses. This news drove the price of AMC shares down about 27% to close at $15.20 on August 2, 2017. The August 2 closing price was nearly 52% below the secondary offering price.
“We’re focused on the defendants’ apparent undisclosed knowledge of problems with the Carmike business and damages to AMC investors,” said Hagens Berman partner Reed Kathrein.
