Vue Entertainment International has been pursuing a buy and build strategy, expanding its string of multiplexes across Europe and Taiwan to 187. It bought Apollo in the UK and Germany’s Cinemaxx in 2012 and, using financing from Canadian pension funds AIMCo and Omers, which backed a £935m buyout in 2013, it bought Polish cinema group Multikino later that year and Italian chain Space last year. Under chief executive Tim Richards, 56, overseas sales reached £262.5m in 2014.
