LIONSGATE REPORTS REVENUE OF $743.6 MILLION, EBITDA OF $66.2 MILLION, ADJUSTED EBITDA OF $87.2 MILLION AND NET INCOME OF $37.8 MILLION OR $0.28 PER BASIC SHARE IN THE THIRD QUARTER OF FISCAL 2013

Third Quarter Results Driven By Domestic Theatrical Releases of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN - PART 2 And Other Films As Well As Home Entertainment And International Operations

SANTA MONICA, Calif. and VANCOUVER, Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF) today reported revenue of $743.6 million, EBITDA of $66.2 million, adjusted EBITDA of $87.2 million  and net income of $37.8 million or $0.28 per basic share for the third quarter of Fiscal 2013 (quarter ended December 31, 2012).

Revenue of $743.6 million in the third quarter increased by 130% compared to $323.0 million in the prior year quarter, driven by the domestic theatrical box office performance of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 and several other films, continued strong home entertainment and international revenue and increased pay television revenue.

EBITDA of $66.2 million and adjusted EBITDA of $87.2 million in the third quarter compared to EBITDA of $16.6 million and adjusted EBITDA of $27.3 million in the prior year quarter.

Net income of $37.8 million in the third quarter compared to net loss of $(1.4) million in the prior year quarter.  The Company noted that, excluding the $14.7 million noncash expense for extinguishment of debt related to the early payment of the balance of the Summit term loan, net income as adjusted was $52.4 million or $0.39 per basic share.

Profitability and EBITDA growth in the third quarter compared to the prior year quarter was attributable to strong performances of the Company's theatrical, home entertainment and international businesses which more than offset increased marketing costs for a larger slate of films.

Basic net income per common share for the third quarter was $0.28 on 135.0 million weighted average common shares outstanding, compared to basic net loss per common share of $(0.01) on 126.5 million weighted average common shares outstanding in the prior year quarter.

The Company reported $125.2 million in free cash flow in the third quarter compared to free cash flow of negative $(37.0) million in the prior year quarter.

Revenue for the nine months ended December 31, 2012 was $1.92 billion compared to $942.4 million in the prior year nine-month period.  EBITDA of $156.9 million and adjusted EBITDA of $214.1 million for the nine-month period compared to EBITDA of $38.4 million and adjusted EBITDA of $41.5 million for the prior year nine-month period.

Net income of $69.2 million or $0.52 basic net income per common share for the nine months ended December 31, 2012 compared to net loss of $(16.4) million or $(0.12) basic net loss per common share for the prior year nine-month period.

Lionsgate's filmed entertainment backlog, or already contracted future revenue not yet recorded, was $1.2 billion at December 31, 2012.

"The quarter reflected not only the impact of our young adult franchises but strong contributions from the rest of our theatrical releases and our home entertainment and international operations," said Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer.  "Our revenue growth compared to the prior year quarter was matched by continued strong EBITDA and free cash flow that will enable us to continue our focus on optimizing our capital structure and deleveraging our balance sheet."     

Overall motion picture revenue for the third quarter was $673.5 million, an increase of 189% from the prior year quarter reflecting strong gains in most categories.  Within the motion picture segment, theatrical revenue in the quarter was $192.9 million compared to $8.4 million in the prior year quarter, an increase attributable to the box office performance of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2, SINISTER, THE IMPOSSIBLE and several other titles.  The TWILIGHT SAGA BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 will have a March 2, 2013 home entertainment release.

Lionsgate's home entertainment revenue from both motion pictures and television was $233.0 million in the third quarter, a 43% increase from the prior year quarter driven by a diverse mix of titles including THE EXPENDABLES 2, STEP UP REVOLUTION, MADEA'S WITNESS PROTECTION, CABIN IN THE WOODS, WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING, ARBITRAGE and continued revenue from THE HUNGER GAMES, released on DVD and digital in August.  

Television revenue included in motion picture revenue was $98.8 million in the third quarter, a fourfold increase from the prior year quarter driven by contributions from THE HUNGER GAMES, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 and GOOD DEEDS.

International motion picture revenue of $89.5 million (excluding Lionsgate U.K.) for the third quarter increased six times over from the prior year quarter driven by the strong international theatrical performances of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 and STEP UP REVOLUTION.

Lionsgate U.K. revenue was $36.6 million, an increase of 120% from the prior year quarter, on the strength of a diversified theatrical slate driven by THE EXPENDABLES 2 and WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING, Lionsgate U.K. and third-party titles MAGIC MIKE and KEITH LEMON: THE FILM and the continued strong performance of THE HUNGER GAMES. 

Television production revenue was $70.1 million in the third quarter, a decline of 22% compared to the prior year quarter, as strong international sales of ANGER MANAGEMENT, MAD MEN Seasons 3, 4 and 5 and WEEDS Season 8 were offset by revenue declines in domestic series licensing due to timing.

Lionsgate senior management will hold its analyst and investor conference call to discuss its third quarter fiscal 2013 results at 9:00 A.M. ET/6:00 A.M. PT on Tuesday, February 12, 2013. Interested parties may participate live in the conference call by calling 1-800-230-1074 (612-234-9959 outside the U.S. and Canada).  A full digital replay will be available from Tuesday morning, February 12, through Tuesday, February 19, by dialing 1-800-475-6701 (320-365-3844 outside the U.S. and Canada) and using access code 279710.

The nine months ended December 31, 2011 includes a benefit for charges associated with a shareholder activist matter of $2.0 million related to a negotiated settlement with a vendor of costs incurred and recorded in fiscal year 2011, and insurance recoveries of related litigation offset by other costs.

EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, income tax provision, and depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure.

EBITDA, as adjusted represents EBITDA as defined above adjusted for a gain on sale of asset disposal group, loss on extinguishment of debt, stock-based compensation, acquisition related charges, certain corporate defense and related charges, and non-risk prints and advertising expense. Stock-based compensation represents compensation expenses associated with stock options, restricted share units and stock appreciation rights. Acquisition related charges represent severance and transaction costs associated with the acquisition of Summit. Corporate defense and related charges represent legal fees, other professional fees, and certain other costs associated with a shareholder activist matter. Non-risk prints and advertising expense represents the amount of theatrical marketing expense for third party titles that the Company funded and expensed for which a third party provides a guarantee that such expense will be recouped from the performance of the film (i.e. there is no risk of loss to the company) net of an amount of the estimated amortization of participation expense that would have been recorded if such amount had not been expensed. The amount is subtracted from EBITDA in the three months ended December 31, 2012 because there was no non-risk prints and advertising expense incurred and the amount represents the estimated amortization of participation expense that would have been recorded if such prior period amounts had not been expensed.

Management believes EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted to be a meaningful indicator of our performance that provides useful information to investors regarding our financial condition and results of operations. Presentation of EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted is a non-GAAP financial measure commonly used in the entertainment industry and by financial analysts and others who follow the industry to measure operating performance. While management considers EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted to be an important measure of comparative operating performance, it should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, net income and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. EBITDA and EBITDA, as adjusted do not reflect cash available to fund cash requirements. Not all companies calculate EBITDA or EBITDA, as adjusted in the same manner and the measure as presented may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies.

Free cash flow is defined as net cash flows provided by (used in) operating activities, less purchases of property and equipment, plus or minus the net increase or decrease in production loans including production loan activity under the Company's Film Credit Facility, plus the decrease in restricted cash held in a trust for certain obligations until December 31, 2011. The adjustment for the production loans is made because the GAAP based cash flows from operations reflects a non-cash reduction of cash flows for the cost of films associated with production loans prior to the time the Company actually pays for the film. The Company believes that it is more meaningful to reflect the impact of the payment for these films in its free cash flow when the payments are actually made.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure as defined in Regulation G promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. This non-GAAP financial measure is in addition to, not a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

Management believes this non-GAAP measure provides useful information to investors regarding cash that our operating businesses generate whether classified as operating or financing activity (related to the production of our films) within our GAAP based statement of cash flows, before taking into account cash movements that are non-operational. Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure commonly used in the entertainment industry and by financial analysts and others who follow the industry. Not all companies calculate free cash flow in the same manner and the measure as presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Net income, as adjusted is defined as net income, as reported, adjusted for the loss on early extinguishment of debt, net of tax. The adjustment for the loss on early extinguishment of debt, net of tax, reflects a non-cash charge associated with the early extinguishment of debt. Earnings per share, as adjusted is defined as net income, as adjusted per weighted average shares outstanding.

Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding our results before taking into account certain non-operating non-cash charges. Not all companies calculate net income, as adjusted in the same manner and the measure as presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
