Company Description

2012 was a transformative year for Lionsgate as the Company acquired Summit Entertainment in January 2012 and launched the global blockbuster THE HUNGER GAMES franchise in March 2012, emerging as a content leader in the world marketplace. The successes of the past year were the result of Lionsgate’s 12-year growth strategy in which the Company used a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions to assemble the building blocks for long-term success. Lionsgate is a far different company today than it was a few short years ago, although it remains committed to the low overhead, cost discipline, entrepreneurial business models and niche focus that have been signatures of its growth over the years

SCM's research includes an analysis of financial statements including all published material for at least the three most recent years.
