The promotion recognizes Mr. Schwartz's ongoing leadership role in growing the 
Company's $1 billion-a-year home entertainment operations as they continue to 
build momentum following the most successful year in their history. 
Led by the blockbusters HUNGER GAMES and THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – 
PART 1, two of the three biggest home entertainment releases in the industry 
last year, Lionsgate achieved nearly 10% market share in calendar 2012, 
ranking among the top five home entertainment distributors.  The Company is 
off to a fast start in calendar 2013 as well, driven by releases such as THE 
TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN – PART 2, one of the biggest home entertainment 
titles of the year to date. 
During Mr. Schwartz's tenure, Lionsgate's 15,000-title library has achieved 
eight consecutive years of revenue growth.  He recently helped orchestrate the 
Company's distribution deal with A&E Network, adding thousands of titles to 
the Lionsgate library.  Lionsgate's digital and on demand revenues also grew 
by 46% last year to a record $270 million, and the Company is widely 
recognized as an innovator in delivering content to digital and traditional 
platforms alike. 
Mr. Schwartz is also a key member of the team that acquires films, in 
conjunction with sister company Roadside Attractions, for Lionsgate's growing 
specialty theatrical business.  The Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions partnership 
has already acquired and released such critically acclaimed and commercially 
successful films as WINTER's BONE, THE COVE, FRIENDS WITH KIDS and the 
day-and-date theatrical/VOD successes ARBITRAGE and MARGIN CALL. 
"Ron is a gifted and experienced executive who has helped guide our home 
entertainment business to several years of sustained and profitable growth," 
said Lionsgate Co-Chief Operating Officer and Motion Picture Group President 
Steve Beeks. "He has a keen grasp of the direction in which our business is 
heading, and he is ideally qualified to position Lionsgate as a global leader 
and innovator in delivering content to the full spectrum of home entertainment 
platforms." 
Prior to his promotion, Mr. Schwartz served as Executive Vice President and 
General Manager of Lionsgate Home Entertainment for seven years, playing a key 
role in the Company's adoption of new technologies and formats such as BluRay 
and Ultraviolet and establishing Lionsgate as the industry leader in box 
office–to-DVD and box office–to-VOD conversion rates.  He joined Lionsgate 
predecessor company Trimark in 1992. 
In addition to Mr. Schwartz, Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer, Vice Chairman 
Michael Burns, Co-Chief Operating Officers Steve Beeks and Brian Goldsmith and 
General Counsel and Chief Strategic Officer Wayne Levin have all signed new 
long-term agreements with the Company during the past year.
