Cineworld has secured a $750m (£552m) funding package to see it through the crisis as it hopes for a possible spring reopening. Following news last week that the global chain – which has 127 UK sites – was considering a company voluntary arrangement to secure its future, the latest support package is said to be a “lifeline” for the business. The funding includes $450m (£331m) in new loans, as well as issued warrants that could hand around 10% of shares to creditors. Cineworld has also secured debt waivers until 2022, the extension of a $111m (£82m) line of credit until 2024 and the early repayment of a $200m (£147m) tax rebate.
