AMC Entertainment Holdings, Inc. AMC is scheduled to report first-quarter 2022 results on May 9. In the last reported quarter, the company’s earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 42.1%.

Q1 Estimates

For the quarter to be reported, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for loss per share has widened to 65 cents over the past seven days from 42 cents per share. In the prior-year quarter, the company had reported adjusted loss per share of $1.42. The consensus mark for revenues stands at $724.5 million, compared with the year-ago reported figure of $148.3 million.

Factors to Note

AMC Entertainment’s first-quarter 2022 performance is likely to have benefited from a sharp increase in global attendance. The company’s to-be-reported quarter’s results might reflect an increase in average ticket pricing. Earlier, it had announced that the 2022 film slate is expected to be significantly stronger than 2021. The robust performance of its domestic box office bodes well.

The Zacks Consensus Estimate for Admissions revenues is pegged at $410 million, compared with $70 million reported in the prior-year quarter.

However, AMC Entertainment has been focused on comprehensive health and sanitation program, including enhanced cleaning procedures and upgraded air filtration efforts, to ensure maximum safety for guests. These efforts entail high costs, which might have weighed on the first-quarter performance. Monthly cash burns are likely to have negatively impacted the to-be-reported quarter’s performance. During fourth-quarter 2021, cash burn was approximately $75 million per month.
