LIONSGATE Key Lines of Business
Lionsgate is a premier next generation global content leader whose feature films, television programming and digital content touch consumers around the world. The Company has become one of the independent studios of choice for leading intellectual property owners, third-party distributors and digital platforms of tomorrow.
With over 40 feature film releases spanning eight labels each year, Lionsgate has emerged as a creative force in the global marketplace with a track record of commercial and critical success. The Company’s feature films have grossed more than $7 billion at the global box office over the past four years, and Lionsgate and its predecessor companies have earned 90 Academy Award® nominations and 20 Oscar wins.
The Lionsgate Television Group, a supplier of nearly 80 shows to 40 different U.S. networks, has become a leader in delivering premium content to cable and broadcast platforms and one of the suppliers of choice for streaming networks. The Company has earned 186 Emmy nominations and 29 Emmy wins, driven by ground-breaking series such as Orange is the New Black, Mad Men, Weeds and Nurse Jackie. With its November 2015 investment in leading reality producer Pilgrim Studios, combined with continued organic growth, Lionsgate is also building a strong nonfiction business alongside its premium scripted operations.
Driven by its 16,000-title film and television library, one of the biggest content catalogues in the world, Lionsgate has also built a premier home entertainment business that is an industry leader in box office-to-DVD, VOD and digital conversion. The Company is a first mover in aligning with leading digital platforms, incorporating new technologies and exploring windowing strategies to expand the choices and enrich the home entertainment experience it offers consumers.
Lionsgate also continues to build a portfolio of channels driven by strong brands, deep content pipelines and its vast library. Epix has become the most successful new pay television network in the past 20 years. POP, the Company’s partnership with CBS, continues to build a strong slate of original programming and expand its distribution footprint.
The Company is also connecting its content directly with consumers through its OTT platforms that include Tribeca Shortlist, in partnership with Tribeca Enterprises, Comic-Con HQ and Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud comedy platform.
A first mover in location-based entertainment, video games and virtual reality, Lionsgate continues to create alliances with a new generation of content companies to extend its reach into ancillary businesses designed to extend the longevity of existing franchises while identifying exciting new properties. The Company is already planning investments in theme park attractions, rides and exhibitions on four continents, and it continues to build its presence in video games and interactive ventures that leverage the breadth and depth of its IP. Its partnership with Disney and Fox on the ground-breaking Atom Tickets app creates exciting new opportunities for theatre owners and consumers alike.
With a diversified, scalable and growing television business, a feature film slate driven by an expanding portfolio of brands, franchises and other leading IP and continued exploration of exciting new directions in storytelling for next generation audiences, the Company is well positioned to continue enhancing its stature as a global content powerhouse.
Throughout this process, Lionsgate will continue its commitment to the innovation, entrepreneurial spirit and financial discipline that have become the hallmarks of its brand.
