The company reported $0.32 earnings per share for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of $0.36 by $0.04.

On a similar note, analysts expect EPS of $0.41 in December 2017 quarter and $0.25 in March 2018 quarter, representing 24.24% and -21.88% growth, respectively.

Investors did not appear to like what they saw as the Cineworld share price was nearly 4% lower in Tuesday morning trading - following losses of up to 20% last week when news of the talks emerged. But since then, those gains have faded by -0.4%.

The current consensus recommendation provided by covering analysts is 2.30.
