India’s leading multiplex chain PVR and the local unit of Mexican company Cinepolis are in advanced merger talks, according to a report.

The transaction is "moving quickly toward fruition” and would result in the merged giant owning more than 1,200 screens

Cinepolis will likely have a 20 percent stake in the company and PVR's Ajay Bijli will have the management control for at least three years

Wow! Cinepolis is my favourite cinema hall and my city Jaipur didn't have any PVR yet.

No bro 80% of it will still be with PVR . So win - win situation for us 🙂
"Cinepolis to be largest shareholder with around 20% Stake, While PVR promoters will have around 10-14% stake"
It means proportionate holdings will be of PVR stake holders, but definitely less than that of Cinepolis.

We are slowly heading towards a duopoly of PVR and Inox. Already PVR acquired SPI Cinemas, one of the biggest multiplex chains in the South (especially TN), in 2018 and it has acquired Cinemax and DT Cinemas before. Meanwhile Cinépolis acquired Fun Cinemas from Essel Group in 2016.
