AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc.’s Investor Connect program has hit 1 million members, according to the company’s CEO Adam Aron.
Launched in 2021, Investor Connect lets AMC
shareholders self-identify through the company’s website to receive special offers and company updates.
“AMC Investor Connection is our free program of communications and offers for AMC shareholders,” Aron tweeted Wednesday. “ONE MILLION PEOPLE have now enrolled as members. While I get a few hate messages, AMC is SO fortunate to have passionate retail investors with us. TY, TY, TY!”

The movie-theater chain and meme-stock darling recently reported better-than-expected first-quarter revenue and adjusted earnings, and Aron is confident that the company will benefit from the slate of movies coming in 2023.

into common stock.

AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc (AMC) has reached a major milestone in just three years. The entertainment giant’s Investor Connect program, which launched in 2017, has exceeded 1 million members. This program provides investors of AMC stock exclusive benefits such as exclusive investor emails, investor events, and theater experiences.
In a statement, the company’s Chief Executive Officer Adam Aron congratulated the team and thanked the million members who joined the program. “I’m proud to report that in connection to today’s AMC Investor Day we’ve achieved our objective of hitting 1 million members in our investor loyalty program. Since its launch in 2017, we’ve worked to design a program that’s unparalleled in our sector,” he said.
The program had originally been designed to support the loyalty of existing investors, but it has not only grown the base of AMC’s current shareholders but also provided an opportunity for new investors to gain access to exclusive events.
In addition to these exclusive benefits, the AMC Investor Connect program also provides detailed information about the company’s financial performance and upcoming movies. Financial experts have shown that this content has helped the investors to make informed decisions on investing in the company’s stocks.
The fact that the program has achieved 1 million members in such a short period of time is an impressive milestone for AMC and a testament to the members’ loyalty. With the success of this program, AMC looks forward to continuing its commitment to providing investors with the best content and experiences.
