AMC shares spiked by nearly 40% on Monday amid the company’s announcement it had raised $917 million in equity and debt. According to the AMC’s chief executive, the new funding will stave off any talks of imminent bankruptcy.

AMC reportedly brought in over $500 million by issuing more than $164 million new shares as part of efforts to raise new capital.

“So basically, if you think that at some point through vaccination and other means, infection and vaccination, a significant portion of the public will be allowed to and interested in returning to the theaters, that AMC makes a lot of sense because you can borrow money for very inexpensively and you can buy it at a ridiculously low price,” Max Wolff, managing partner at Systematic Ventures said.
