Aron

Chairman / CEO / President

Aron has been on a roller-coaster ride throughout the pandemic. After shutting down its 1,000 theaters worldwide, AMC had five brushes with bankruptcy by Aron’s count. The company started 2021 trading at $2/share, but by the end of January he had raised $4 billion to ensure its survival. At the same time, a social media campaign by renegade retail investors sent the stock into the stratosphere, to a peak of $72.62/share in June. Aron used the windfall to buy back large chunks of AMC’s outstanding debt and make other strategic moves, including signing with Warner Bros. for a 45-day theatrical window in 2022, expanding its non-movie events to include WWE and UFC programming and deciding to accept cryptocurrency payments by the end of 2021.
