AMC Entertainment announces acquisition completion of Odeon & UCI Cinemas

AMC Theatres announced it has completed its acquisition of the largest theatre exhibitor in Europe, London-based ODEON & UCI Cinemas Holdings from private equity firm Terra Firma in a transaction valued at approximately $1.2B. Combining both AMC and ODEON together, AMC now operates 636 theatres with 7,623 screens in eight countries, making it the largest movie exhibition company in the world. With the change in ownership, AMC intends to change the organization's name to ODEON Cinemas Group. There also will be a transition in leadership at ODEON Cinemas Group: Paul Donovan, who has served as CEO since February 2014, is departing. Mark Way, who has served as CFO since September 2014, is the new President, AMC Europe and Managing Director of ODEON Cinemas Group. Ian Shepherd, Group Chief Commercial Officer since June 2014, is the new EVP, AMC Europe and Chief Operating Officer of ODEON Cinemas Group. AMC will operate ODEON as a wholly-owned subsidiary. Theatres in the UK and Ireland will continue to operate under the ODEON brand, theatres in Italy, Portugal, Germany and Austria will continue to operate under the UCI brand, and theatres in Spain will continue to operate under the Cinesa brand. For the year ended December 31, 2015, and nine months ended September 30, 2016, ODEON had revenues of $1.142B and $779.3M, respectively. AMC also is currently in the process of acquiring US-based theatre exhibitor Carmike Cinemas (CKEC). Carmike shareholders have approved the transaction. Closing remains subject to customary conditions, including regulatory approval, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2016 or early 2017.

AMC acquisition puts Carmike deal at risk, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Stan Meyers believes AMC Entertainment's (AMC) acquisition of Europe's largest theater chain Odeon puts its deal with Carmike Cinemas (CKEC) at risk. The pressure on AMC to complete the Carmike deal in 2016 is "largely off the table, increasing the risk of the deal falling apart by the end of the week," Meyers tells investors in a research note. AMC management seems willing to raise its bid and potentially throw in some equity, though not to the levels expected by the Carmike key stakeholders, the analyst contends. He thinks Odeon should accelerate AMC's EBITDA growth over time. Further, the AMC/Odeon deal should also accelerate IMAX's (IMAX) expansion in Europe, Meyers contends.

National CineMedia attractive after recent weakness, says Wedbush
Wedbush believes that National CineMedia's (NCMI) valuation is attractive at current levels, partly due to what it sees as the company's "undemanding Q1 guidance," "confusion" about Carmike's (CKEC) acquisition by AMC (AMC), and the "continuing secular advantages of cinema advertising." The firm thinks that the Carmike deal could benefit National CineMedia over the longer term by enabling it to work with and/or replace Screenvision as Carmike's ad network partner. . Wedbush keeps a $19 price target and Outperform rating on National CineMedia.

AMC could boost Carmike takeover offer by $2-$3.50 per share, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Alex Olvera said that after holding a conference call with the largest shareholder of Carmike (CKEC), Driehaus Capital, that he believes Driehaus and another big stakeholder, Mittleman Investment, may vote against the company's merger deal with AMC Entertainment (AMC). He added that he is not sure if these holders would look to perfect appraisal rights, but said that to avoid costs associated with such a scenario that AMC could decide to raise its offer by $2-$3.50 per share for all Carmike shareholders.
