#3. Cineworld update on Chapter 11 proceedings

Cineworld [LON:CINE] has provided an update on the Chapter 11 proceedings that are taking place across certain subsidiaries in the US. The company has now received non-binding proposals from a number of potential transaction counterparties for some or all of the Group’s business, but on what has been received to date, it is not expected that any sale transaction will provide any recovery for the holders of the Company’s equity interests. The note adds that any sale transaction for the Group as a whole would not include the sale of the equity interests in Cineworld itself and would therefore not be subject to the rules of the Takeover Code. As previously stated, Cineworld continues to operate its global business and cinemas as usual without interruption.
