MM2 Asia is benefiting from the latest announcement of the Government’s green light to allow more patrons in cinemas. On 23 September 2020, the government announced that from Oct 1, large cinema halls with more than 300 seats will be allowed to admit up to 150 patrons in three zones of 50 patrons each.

On the other hand, smaller cinema halls will also be allowed to increase their capacity to 50 percent of their original operating capacity or maintain the current limit of up to 50 patrons per hall, subject to safe management measures.

For Cathay Cineplexes’ parent company – MM2 Asia, it would have breathed a sigh of relief that the worst is probably over as they can welcome more customers.

But that being said, the Cathay cinema is just 1 division of MM2 Asia as the latter owns many more integrated businesses across the content, immersive media, event, and concert industries across Asia.

The adverse impact has been especially so for UnUsUaL Entertainment (“UnUsUaL” in short) with concerts around Asia literally come to a standstill. Hence, it’s of no surprise that its shares have been hammered from around S$0.30 in December 2019 to S$0.14 as of around 20 August 2020.

Is the worst over for UnUsUaL given the gradual opening up of the economy? Does UnUsUaL shares contain hidden value waiting to be unlocked?

To try to answer the questions, we take a deep dive into its business model and catalysts below to find out more. But first, here’s a quick background of UnUsUaL.
