GameStop’s main running mate, AMC (NYSE:AMC) reported its second quarter earnings after the markets closed. The company reported a wider than expected loss of $121.6 million during the quarter. But the big news from the company is that it announced a special dividend of preferred shares that will trade under the ticker symbol APE. These will be created in a 1 for 1 ratio to common shares and can be converted if the shareholder vote passes. This dividend was not enough to sway AMC Apes though, as the stock was down by nearly 12% in after hours trading at the time of this writing.
