Rangemore clarifies business model
MIAMI BEACH, FL, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - In response to numerous inquiries, Rangemore Film Productions Corp. ("Rangemore") (OTCPINK:RANF) would like to clarify to shareholders and potential investors its current business model.
The business of Rangemore consists of two components: studio operations and film royalties.
The studio operations could be compared to that of a property management company. Rangemore has access to a portfolio of properties of which it leases out at a small profit to film production companies in exchange for cash and film royalties. Whether Rangemore owns or leases the properties long or short term is inconsequential. While this component does generate revenue, its true purpose is to provide a method for Rangemore to acquire royalties in the independent film productions without a large cash outlay. Rangemore will negotiate profit sharing arrangements with film producers in exchange for use of the use of studios (cost set-off against a contracted agreement for profit share). This is a cost effective way for Rangemore to build a portfolio of revenue producing film royalties.
The film royalty side of the business is where the large returns come from and is where the main thrust of business lies. Low budget pictures produced by independent production companies in the past have been able to routinely generate revenues in excess of $2 million when one considers not only theater, but pay-per-view, home video, foreign and ancillary revenues. Looking at the top low budget independently produced pictures, the average 10-year gross was in the neighborhood of $9 million while the top 8 grossed more than $30 million and the number one picture earned just over $120 million. Occasionally, feature films produced for less than $50,000 will gross hundreds of thousands or even break the multi-million dollar mark. The table below lists the top ten independent movies with the lowest budgets that have exceeded $1 million in gross revenue. It is Rangemore's intention to utilize the studio properties as means to acquire an interest in these types of independent film projects and over time grow a large portfolio of revenue producing film royalties. This is the core business of Rangemore.
