Movie Tickets issued its first press release this year. The most interesting part is this
“Today’s deal with Regency builds on MovieTickets.com’s exponential growth over the last year. The number of tickets sold by the company in the first quarter of 2017 was up 62% compared to the same period in 2016.”
Consequently, it looks like the company is growing very fast because more and more people are buying movie tickets online. The longer Hollywood Media waits to sell its stake in MovieTickets.com, the more its stake is going to be worth.
The shares of Hollywood Media did not react at all to this news.
