Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.
On December 27, 2006, Regal Entertainment Group (the Company) issued an aggregate of 50,000,000 shares of Class A common stock of the Company, to Anschutz Company (Anschutz) upon the conversion by Anschutz of an equal number of shares of Class B common stock of the Company. The shares of Class A common stock issued by the Company upon the conversion are exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, pursuant to Section 3(a)(9) thereof.
Shares of Class B common stock may be converted at any time into shares of Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis by the holder and are automatically converted into shares of Class A common stock on a one-for-one basis upon a transfer that is not a Permitted Transfer. Each holder of Class A common stock is entitled to one vote for each outstanding share of Class A common stock and each holder of Class B common stock is entitled to ten votes for each outstanding share of Class B common stock. Other than the number of votes per share, Class A and Class B common stock have identical material terms and provisions.
Anschutz has advised the Company that Anschutz has elected to convert the shares of Class B common stock of the Company into shares of Class A common stock of the Company in order to cause Anschutzs voting interest in the Company to drop below 80% so that the Company and its subsidiaries will not be members of the Anschutz controlled group for Anschutz employee benefit plan purposes, which would have otherwise commenced January 1, 2007.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
