How can I get my AMC “APE” stock?

AMC has also declared a special dividend. Instead of cash, the company plans to hand its shareholders a special type of preferred share with a par value of $0.01. Once issued, those dividend shares will trade under the “APE” symbol.

AMC plans to issue investors with one share of the special APE stock for every share of its common stock they own. As a result, the company plans to distribute about 517 million units of the APE shares.
