Why Are Wonderla Shares Trading At An All-Time High?

Shares of Amusement park operator Wonderla Holidays shot up over 4% to a record high on Monday after the company got a massive tax break for a project in Tamil Nadu.

What Happened? Wonderla said on Friday that the government of Tamil Nadu had granted it a significant waiver of the local body tax for 10 years after persistent efforts by the company seeking the waiver.

The waiver will likely provide a material boost to the business. However, the company will have to begin commercial operations at the site within two years to receive the tax waiver.
