Andrew Ross Sorkin requested Gelfond about his ideas on the valuation of competitor AMC Leisure Holdings Inc (NYSE:AMC).
“So to be clear, AMC is our associate, not our competitor,” Gelfond responded.
AMC Leisure’s valuation is pushed by its fan base, and the fan base loves AMC Leisure CEO Adam Aron, Gelfond informed CNBC. As a associate of the corporate, AMC’s latest valuation surge has been good for Imax, he stated.
IMAX Value Motion: Imax has traded as excessive as $25.05 and as little as $10.50 over a 52-week interval.
Eventually verify Monday, the inventory was down 2.6% at $19.32.
