AMC Theaters is warning investors that without a steady flow of movies to bring people into the remaining theaters it has open, the company could run out of cash by the end of 2020. KSB世界播

AMC影院警告投资者,如果没有稳定的电影流来吸引人们进入其开放的剩余影院,该公司可能会在2020年底耗尽现金。KSB世界播


It’s no surprise that the theater industry is hurting. Nearly every major blockbuster (movies that could get people to possibly visit a theater mid-pandemic) has been pushed back to 2021, and the theaters still open are operating at reduced capacities. The results aren’t great; Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan’s Tenet — the one notable blockbuster a studio tried to release — failed to perform in the United States, where theaters in major markets like New York City and Los Angeles remain closed. The next big film is Wonder Woman 1984, and there’s always a chance that could move from its current December 25th release date. KSB世界播

戏剧业受到伤害也就不足为奇了。几乎每一部主要的大片(可能会让人们在大流行期间参观影院的电影)都被推迟到2021年,仍然开放的影院正在减少容量。结果并不是很好;华纳兄弟(Warner Bros.)和克里斯托弗·诺兰(Christopher Nolan)的“特尼特”(Tenet)--制片厂试图发行的一部著名大片--未能在美国上映,纽约市和洛杉矶等主要市场的影院仍然关闭。下一部大片是“神奇女侠1984”,现在的12月25日上映日期总是有可能改变的。KSB世界播


To try to avoid the potentially devastating financial impact the ongoing pandemic will have on its business, AMC is laying out a few potential ways of raising cash, according to public documents filed today. This includes continuing negotiations with landlords over lease payments on theater locations, starting joint ventures with other business partners, and potentially selling off assets. As it stands right now, however, “at the existing cash burn rate, [AMC] anticipates that existing cash resources would be largely depleted by the end of 2020 or early 2021.” KSB世界播

根据今天提交的公开文件,为了避免正在进行的大流行将对其业务造成潜在的破坏性财务影响,AMC正在列出几种可能的筹集资金的方式。这包括继续与房东就影院地点的租金进行谈判,与其他商业伙伴成立合资企业,以及可能出售资产。然而,就目前的情况而言,“按照目前的现金消耗速度,[AMC]预计现有的现金资源将在2020年底或2021年初基本耗尽。”KSB世界播


AMC’s chief financial officer, Sean Goodman, is also warning investors via public documents that there is “a significant risk” that the aforementioned potential sources of additional liquidity may not actually happen — or, he continued, even if AMC Theaters raises some form of liquidity through those potential avenues, it won’t be enough to offset AMC’s losses. Effectively, Goodman is letting investors know that it’s extremely difficult to predict anything right now, and there “can be no assurance” that any of the plans listed above can correctly solve the problem.

AMC的首席财务官肖恩·古德曼(Sean Goodman)也通过公开文件警告投资者,前面提到的增加流动性的潜在来源实际上可能并不会发生,或者,他继续说,即使AMC影院通过这些潜在渠道筹集了某种形式的流动性,也不足以抵消AMC的损失。实际上,古德曼是在让投资者知道,现在很难预测任何事情,而且“不能保证”上面列出的任何计划都能正确解决问题。KSB世界播


“Our ability to be predictive is uncertain due to the unknown magnitude and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the documents read. KSB世界播

“由于新冠肺炎大流行的规模和持续时间未知,我们的预测能力还不确定,”文件中写道。KSB世界播


AMC Theaters isn’t the only company facing an increasingly worrisome future. Regal, which is owned by Cineworld, announced last week that it would shut down its theaters for the time being. Doing so would cut costs, which CEO Mooky Greidinger told CNBC were increasing by keeping theaters open. AMC Theaters is currently only operating locations that are open at about 20–40 percent capacity. That represents approximately 83 percent of theaters in the US, according to the company. Since resuming business, however, attendance at theaters is down 85 percent year over year. KSB世界播

AMC影院并不是唯一一家面临越来越令人担忧的未来的公司。Cineworld旗下的富豪影业上周宣布,将暂时关闭影院。这样做将削减成本,首席执行官穆基·格里丁格(Mooky Greidinger)告诉CNBC,通过保持影院开放,成本正在增加。AMC影院目前只在容量约为20%-40%的情况下开放。据该公司称,这约占美国影院的83%。然而,自恢复营业以来,影院的上座率同比下降了85%。KSB世界播


One of the biggest uncertainties theater chains like AMC face is being unable to predict consumer behavior. Even if theaters open en masse next year, studios could continue delaying movies if people remain at home. Studios like Disney, Warner Bros., and Universal could move their titles to streaming services. AMC Theaters is working with Universal to shorten the theatrical window to just 17 days, which will allow Universal to sell it directly to consumers at a faster rate and will give AMC Theaters a portion of the revenue.

像AMC Face这样的影院连锁店最大的不确定性之一是无法预测消费者的行为。即使影院明年全部开放,如果人们留在家里,制片厂可能会继续推迟电影。迪士尼、华纳兄弟和环球等制片厂可以将它们的片名转移到流媒体服务上。AMC影院正在与环球影院合作,将影院窗口缩短至仅17天,这将使环球能够更快地将其直接出售给消费者,并将给AMC影院带来部分收入。KSB世界播
