About Lionsgate

Lionsgate is a nearly $2 billion diversified global entertainment corporation with a leading presence in motion picture production and distribution, television programming and syndication, home entertainment, family entertainment, digital distribution and new channel platforms. Lionsgate's blueprint for growth combines the flexibility and entrepreneurial culture of an independent, with the financial and strategic relationship of a major studio and the structure and consumer focus of a top digital age company.

During the past 10 years, Lionsgate has grown into a leading filmed entertainment studio through a combination of organic growth and accretive strategic acquisitions. With the acquisitions of Artisan Entertainment, Trimark Holdings and other available libraries, Lionsgate now manages one of the most prestigious and prolific libraries in the entertainment industry with nearly 13,000 titles, a diverse portfolio of businesses, and an exciting, commercially potent feature film slate of approximately12 to 15 releases per year.

Lionsgate's feature film slate generated more than half a billion dollars at the North American box office in calendar year 2010, fueled by such box office hits as THE EXPENDABLES, Lionsgate's most profitable film ever, THE LAST EXORCISM, SAW 3D, KICK ASS, TYLER PERRY'S WHY DID I GET MARRIED TOO? and the critically-acclaimed PRECIOUS, which won two Academy Awards®. Other hits in the past two years included DAYBREAKERS, MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D, HAUNTING IN CONNECTICUT, FORBIDDEN KINGDOM, RAMBO and THE BANK JOB. Lionsgate has earned 55 Academy Award® nominations and 10 Oscar® wins over the past 10 years, more than any other independent studio.

Last fall, the Company announced its plans to partner with Latin media giant Televisa to form Pantelion Films, which acquires, produces and distributes a full slate of English and Spanish language feature films for the fast-growing audience of 26 million Hispanic moviegoers in the U.S. Supported by the top U.S. theatrical exhibition circuits, Pantelion kicked off its slate with the January 28, 2011 debut of the comedy FROM PRADA TO NADA.

The highly diversified company also features a vibrant television production and syndication business with 15 prime-time cable and broadcast network series spanning 12 channels, including the Emmy® Award-winning drama series "Mad Men" and "Weeds," the critically-acclaimed "Nurse Jackie" and the comedy "Blue Mountain State." Lionsgate's television programming has earned 77 Emmy® nominations and seven Emmy® wins in the past 10 years, including 26 Emmy® nominations in the past year alone.

The Company also has a syndicated portfolio of television series through its Debmar-Mercury television distribution arm that includes Tyler Perry's hit "House of Payne," with 212 total episodes produced for Turner Broadcasting and the Fox syndicated station group, its spinoff "Meet the Browns," "The Wendy Williams Show," the recently launched comedy "Are We There Yet?" on TBS, the upcoming "Jeremy Kyle Talk Show" and such evergreen classics as "South Park," "Family Feud" and "Trivial Pursuit."

Lionsgate's $600-million-a-year home entertainment business has 7% market share and the industry's highest box office-to-DVD conversion rate, including such recent hit titles as THE EXPENDABLES, KICK ASS, PRECIOUS, the first five seasons of "Weeds," the first three seasons of "Mad Men" and the first season of "Nurse Jackie."

Lionsgate is also building a portfolio of new channel businesses, including FEARnet, the branded horror channel operated with partners Sony and Comcast, TV Guide Network, acquired in February 2009 and operated in conjunction with JPMorgan's One Equity Partners, EPIX, the new premium entertainment channel with partners Viacom and MGM, and Tiger Gate, which operates the branded action and horror channels Kix and Thrill in Asia in partnership with the Saban Capital Group.

TV Guide Network, a fully distributed channel reaching over 80 million homes, has achieved significant growth of its content and distribution businesses in its first two years under the Lionsgate banner, and it is airing the recently-acquired strips "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Weeds" and "Ugly Betty" with fresh original programming in the pipeline. TV is a leading online navigation site which has grown from 5 million to 21 million unique monthly visitors in the past three years.

EPIX continues to gain momentum with its transformative carriage agreement with Netflix along with other recent carriage deals with Verizon, Charter, Cox, Suddenlink, Mediacom, NCTC and DISH Network. EPIX has gone from launch to profitability in its first year and is already available in more than 30 million homes.

Tiger Gate is expanding its distribution footprint across Asia, with recent launches in Hong Kong, Singapore and Indonesia, and it is scheduled to roll out to the Philippines and additional key Asian territories in the next year. Its Thrill channel showcases high-end local Asian horror films and thrillers and hit television series, and it will also leverage Lionsgate's vast stockpile of horror/thriller content as well as other Hollywood studio hits. The Kix channel is a fast-paced, action-packed channel featuring a mix of Asian blockbuster motion pictures, hit television series, cutting edge reality series, action game shows, anime, extreme sports, mixed martial arts events and classic martial arts masterpieces, bringing together a broad spectrum of Asian content as well as international content with an Asian influence.

Other companies within the Lionsgate family include Lionsgate UK (originally Redbus Film Distributors), acquired in October 2005, and the independent production and distribution company Mandate Pictures, acquired in August 2007, which subsequently released the box office hit and Best Picture Academy Award® nominee JUNO, as well as HAROLD AND KUMAR 2, NICK AND NORA'S INFINITE PLAYLIST and Sam Raimi's DRAG ME TO HELL.

Lionsgate has also made investments in, the leading online site for young men ages 18-34 with more than 80 million monthly unique users worldwide, and in Roadside Attractions, an independent film production and distribution platform that released the drama WINTER'S BONE, which earned four Academy Award® nominations this year, Best Foreign Language Film nominee BIUTIFUL which also earned a Best Actor nomination for Javier Bardem and last year's Academy Award® winning documentary THE COVE. Lionsgate has also created a vibrant global distribution infrastructure that includes the product of a growing roster of third parties including Relativity Media, Gold Circle Films, Televisa and StudioCanal, in addition to Lionsgate's own content.

During the past 10 years, Lionsgate has grown its revenues eightfold, from $180 million to nearly $1.6 billion, its theatrical box office market share tenfold, the size of its library 15 times over and its television revenues by a multiple of 50, from $8 million in 2000 to $351 million last year.
