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.

We offer four on-ramps to the Digital Enterprise: alignment through collaborative process analysis; transformation through portfolio management; agility through process automation and integration; and visibility through intelligent business operations and big data.
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.

With the iCloud scandal seemingly in its past, Apple announced new iPhones, updates to iPad and MacBook as well as news on OSX Yosemite. Although consumers will have to wait to get their hands on some of that new stuff, what they can get is the latest release of iOS 8 that Apple made available for most in-market iPhones and iPads. Originally announced at WWDC (Apple’s annual developers conference) in June, iOS 8 seems to spearhead Apple’s newfound focus upon greater integration of their products into everyday tasks, cross-platform mobility and self-monitoring. Before you update your device, here is a look at some of the new features and things you may want to consider from a mobile security perspective.
