Lionsgate Buys Summit Entertainment for $412.5 Million

Lionsgate Buys Summit Entertainment for $412.5 Million

Last week, Lions Gate purchased Summit Entertainment for (insert Dr. Evil’s voice) $412.5 Million. Mwhahahaha!

From LA Times:

Bringing Hollywood’s two biggest independent film studios and the blockbuster young adult franchises “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games” into one powerful entity, Lions Gate Entertainment has agreed to acquire Summit Entertainment for $412.5 million in cash and stock.

The two Santa Monica-based companies have engaged in on-and-off merger talks since late 2008 as Lions Gate has sought to bolster its library of film and TV properties and Summit’s investors have tried to find a way to cash in on the lightning-in-a-bottle success of its “Twilight” movie series, which has grossed $2.5 billion worldwide over four films.

The acquisition will provide a windfall to Summit’s investors, among them Ebay co-founder Jeff Skoll’s film company Participant Media and private equity fund operator Suhail Rizvi’s Rizvi Traverse Management. Summit’s investors previously received a $200-million dividend as part of a recapitalization in early 2011.

—–

In an announcement issued (last) Friday, Lions Gate said the majority of the purchase price would be funded by cash on hand at Summit. The rest will be paid for by $55 million of Lions Gate’s cash reserves, $45 million from new debt issued by Lions Gate, and another $20 million of cash or stock that Lions Gate must issue within 60 days.

Summit comes into the deal with about $200 million in net debt, which is secured by that studio’s existing assets and will not be assumed by Lions Gate.

Summit was in net debt?  Wow.  I know we’re a week late posting this.  What are your thoughts?  How will this effect Breaking Dawn Part 2?

Summit in Talks to Merge with Lionsgate, Twilight and Hunger Games Under One Roof?

Summit in Talks to Merge with Lionsgate, Twilight and Hunger Games Under One Roof?

Lionsgate Summit

Summit, the studio behind The Twilight Saga, is reportedly in talks to merge with Lionsgate, who are making the Hunger Games movies.

This isn’t the first time talks have happened behind closed doors according to Bloomberg, and neither studio is commenting at present. The current rumors are based on the word of three people “with knowledge of the situation,” according to Bloomberg, who broke the story.

This would allow the studios behind two of the biggest book-to-movie translations in recent memory to pool resources.

Summit was a tiny studio before it hit gold with the Twilight series. Lionsgate hopes to find the same success.

This deal could allow the studios to take on more projects like The Night Circus, which is a fantastic book from a first-time author that Summit recently picked up before it = hit shelves. Had Twilight not happened, it’s hard to imagine Summit having the resources to make the fanciful and fantastic book a reality on screen.

While the financials and terms are unknown, it’s hard to see the downside. As long as Edward Cullen doesn’t pop up in Hunger Games 8: Volturi vs. The Capitol, this sounds good to me!
