  • Lions Gate's Fiscal Q1 Profit Jumps on Higher Revenue (LGF)

    Film and television production studio Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. (LGF) said Monday that its fiscal first quarter profit rose considerably from last year, helped by strong performance from its Mandate Pictures segment. The Santa Monica-based company reported fiscal first quarter net income of $36.3 million, or 30 cents per share, compared with only $3.5 million, or 3 cents per share, in the year-ago period. Revenue jumped 30% to $387.7 million from $298.5 million last year. On average, Wall Street analysts expected a net loss of 5 cents per share, on much lower revenue of just $330.6 million. The latest quarter marked the first full quarter that included revenue from TV Guide Network and TV Guide.com deals, which Lions Gate acquired in January. Another key acquisition provided a big revenue boost, as the company's Mandate Pictures unit, acquired in August 2007, saw revenue rise to $53.1 million from $8.5 million last year. TV revenue also increased to $87.2 million in the quarter, more than double than last year's level. Lions Gate shares rose 23 cents, or +3.5%, in morning trading Tuesday.
