The Company noted that, excluding the $14.7 million noncash expense for extinguishment of debt related to the early payment of the balance of the Summit term loan, net income as adjusted was $52.4 million or $0.39 per basic share.Profitability and EBITDA growth in the third quarter compared to the prior year quarter was attributable to strong performances of the Company's theatrical, home entertainment and international businesses which more than offset increased marketing costs for a larger slate of films.Basic net income per common share for the third quarter was $0.28 on 135.0 million weighted average common shares outstanding, compared to basic net loss per common share of $(0.01) on 126.5 million weighted average common shares outstanding in the prior year quarter.The Company reported $125.2 million in free cash flow in the third quarter compared to free cash flow of negative $(37.0) million in the prior year quarter.Revenue for the nine months ended December 31, 2012 was $1.92 billion compared to $942.4 million in the prior year nine-month period. EBITDA of $156.9 million and adjusted EBITDA of $214.1 million for the nine-month period compared to EBITDA of $38.4 million and adjusted EBITDA of $41.5 million for the prior year nine-month period.Net income of $69.2 million or $0.52 basic net income per common share for the nine months ended December 31, 2012 compared to net loss of $(16.4) million or $(0.12) basic net loss per common share for the prior year nine-month period. Lionsgate's filmed entertainment backlog, or already contracted future revenue not yet recorded, was $1.2 billion at December 31, 2012."The quarter reflected not only the impact of our young adult franchises but strong contributions from the rest of our theatrical releases and our home entertainment and international operations," said Lionsgate Chief Executive Officer Jon Feltheimer. "Our revenue growth compared to the prior year quarter was matched by continued strong EBITDA and free cash flow that will enable us to continue our focus on optimizing our capital structure and deleveraging our balance sheet." Overall motion picture revenue for the third quarter was $673.5 million, an increase of 189% from the prior year quarter reflecting strong gains in most categories. Within the motion picture segment, theatrical revenue in the quarter was $192.9 million compared to $8.4 million in the prior year quarter, an increase attributable to the box office performance of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2, SINISTER, THE IMPOSSIBLE and several other titles. The TWILIGHT SAGA BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 will have a March 2, 2013 home entertainment release. Lionsgate's home entertainment revenue from both motion pictures and television was $233.0 million in the third quarter, a 43% increase from the prior year quarter driven by a diverse mix of titles including THE EXPENDABLES 2, STEP UP REVOLUTION, MADEA'S WITNESS PROTECTION, CABIN IN THE WOODS, WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING, ARBITRAGE and continued revenue from THE HUNGER GAMES, released on DVD and digital in August. Television revenue included in motion picture revenue was $98.8 million in the third quarter, a fourfold increase from the prior year quarter driven by contributions from THE HUNGER GAMES, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 and GOOD DEEDS.International motion picture revenue of $89.5 million (excluding Lionsgate U.K.) for the third quarter increased six times over from the prior year quarter driven by the strong international theatrical performances of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2 and STEP UP REVOLUTION. Lionsgate U.K. revenue was $36.6 million, an increase of 120% from the prior year quarter, on the strength of a diversified theatrical slate driven by THE EXPENDABLES 2 and WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING, Lionsgate U.K. and third-party titles MAGIC MIKE and KEITH LEMON: THE FILM and the continued strong performance of THE HUNGER GAMES. Television production revenue was $70.1 million in the third quarter, a decline of 22% compared to the prior year quarter, as strong international sales of ANGER MANAGEMENT, MAD MEN Seasons 3, 4 and 5 and WEEDS Season 8 were offset by revenue declines in domestic series licensing due to timing.Lionsgate senior management will hold its analyst and investor conference call to discuss its third quarter fiscal 2013 results at 9:00 A.M.

EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure.EBITDA, as adjusted represents EBITDA as defined above adjusted for a gain on sale of asset disposal group, 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 stock appreciation rights. 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 December 31, 2012 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.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 or EBITDA, as adjusted in the same manner and the measure as presented may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies.LIONS GATE ENTERTAINMENT CORP.RECONCILIATION OF FREE CASH FLOW TO NET CASH FLOWS PROVIDED BY (USED IN) OPERATING ACTIVITIESThree Months EndedThree Months EndedNine Months EndedNine Months EndedDecember 31, 2012December 31, 2011December 31, 2012December 31, 2011(Amounts in thousands)Net Cash Flows Provided By (Used In) Operating Activities76,124(71,290)218,259(211,852)Purchases of property and equipment(1,110)(296)(2,086)(1,549)Net borrowings under and (repayment) of production loans50,16148,547(58,979)84,346Restricted cash held in trust—(13,992)—(13,992)Free Cash Flow, as defined$125,175$(37,031)$157,194$(143,047)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.
