Revenue of $2.71 billion for fiscal 2013 increased by 71% compared to $1.59 billion in the prior year, reflecting strong performances by the Company throughout its theatrical, home entertainment, international and Lionsgate U.K. operations driven by a successful slate of feature films led by the global blockbuster HUNGER GAMES and TWILIGHT franchises.

Adjusted EBITDA of $329.7 million for fiscal 2013 compared to adjusted EBITDA of $71.6 million in the prior year.

Net income for the fiscal year was $232.1 million or $1.73 basic net income per share on 134.5 million weighted average number of common shares outstanding compared to a $(39.1) million net loss or $(0.30) basic net loss per share on 132.2 million weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the prior year.  Adjusted net income of $190.1 million or $1.41 adjusted basic net income per share compared to adjusted net loss of $(13.1) million or $(0.10) adjusted basic net loss per share in the prior year.

Free cash flow of $280.5 million for fiscal 2013 compared to negative free cash flow of $(86.9) million in the prior year.

Lionsgate's filmed entertainment backlog, or already contracted future revenue not yet recorded, was $1.1 billion at March 31, 2013.

"We completed a stellar fiscal 2013 with an outstanding fourth quarter that reflected strong contributions from our young adult franchises as well as the rest of our theatrical slate and our home entertainment and international businesses," said Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer.  "We are performing ahead of plan for all of our metrics, and we're pleased with the financial strength of our diverse portfolio of businesses and our strong and growing momentum building Lionsgate into a next generation global content leader."

Overall Motion Picture segment revenue for fiscal 2013 was $2.33 billion, an increase of 96% from the prior year reflecting strong gains in all categories.  Within the Motion Picture segment, theatrical revenue in the fiscal year was $535.5 million compared to $208.9 million in the prior year, a 156% increase attributable to the box office performance of a 2013 slate that included THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2, WARM BODIES, THE EXPENDABLES 2 and MADEA'S WITNESS PROTECTION as well as THE HUNGER GAMES from the 2012 slate.  The next HUNGER GAMES installment, THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE, will open worldwide on November 22, 2013.

Lionsgate's home entertainment revenue from both motion pictures and television was $964.1 million for the fiscal year, a 41% increase compared to $683.5 million in the prior year, driven by THE HUNGER GAMES, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN -- PART 1 and THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2, three of the biggest home entertainment titles of the year, as well as THE EXPENDABLES 2, MADEA'S WITNESS PROTECTION, CABIN IN THE WOODS and WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING.  Digital media revenue increased by 46% to $276.6 million in fiscal 2013 compared to $190.1 million in the prior year.  

Television revenue included in the Motion Picture segment was $277.9 million in fiscal 2013, more than doubling the $119.9 million generated in the prior year.

International Motion Picture segment revenue of $369.7 million (excluding Lionsgate U.K.) for fiscal 2013 more than tripled the prior year total, driven by the strong international theatrical performances of THE HUNGER GAMES, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1, STEP UP REVOLUTION and WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING.

Lionsgate U.K. revenue was $147.7 million, an increase of 46% from the prior year, on the strength of a diversified theatrical slate including THE HUNGER GAMES and THE EXPENDABLES 2, Lionsgate U.K.'s SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN and third-party titles such as MAGIC MIKE. 

Revenue in the Television Production segment in fiscal 2013 was $379.0 million compared to $397.3 million in the prior year.  The decline was primarily attributable to a decrease in home entertainment revenue for television programming as the prior year included the licensing of four seasons of MAD MEN to Netflix.  Domestic and international licensing of television programming posted gains over the prior year.

The three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 include cash settled SARs expense of $9.7 million and $12.9 million, respectively.

 

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

EBITDA, as adjusted represents EBITDA as defined above adjusted for gain on sale of asset disposal group when applicable, 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 cash settled stock appreciation rights ("SARs") and equity settled SARs. 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 March 31, 2013 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. EBITDA, as adjusted is a non-GAAP financial measure.

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 and 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.

Income (loss) before income taxes, net income (loss) and basic and diluted EPS, as adjusted are adjusted for the following items:

(1) Tax valuation allowance: This adjusts net income to eliminate the discrete tax benefit recognized for financial reporting purposes upon the reduction of the Company's valuation allowance on its remaining net deferred tax assets (excluding certain deferred tax liabilities) as of March 31, 2013 that are expected to be realized in future tax returns. The adjustment presents net income for the year ended March 31, 2013 assuming the valuation allowance on these remaining deferred tax assets was not reversed, consistent with the prior period's presentations. 

(2) Loss on early extinguishment of debt: This adjusts income (loss) before income taxes and net income (loss) to eliminate the loss on early extinguishment of debt. The adjustment to net income (loss) is net of the tax impact calculated using the tax rate applicable to each adjustment.  

(3) Stock based compensation: Adjustments for stock-based compensation represents compensation expenses associated with stock options, restricted share units, cash settled SARs and equity settled SARs. The adjustment to net income is net of the tax impact calculated using the tax rate applicable to each adjustment. 

Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors regarding the Company's results as compared to historical periods. The Company uses these measures, among other measures, to evaluate the operating performance of the Company. The Company believes that the adjusted results provide relevant and useful information for investors because they clarify the Company's actual operating performance and allow investors to review our operating performance in the same way as our management. Since these measures are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, they should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for income before income taxes, net income, basic and diluted EPS. Not all companies calculate income before income taxes, net income, basic and diluted EPS as adjusted in the same manner and the measures as presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.
