RLJ Entertainment, Inc. operates as an entertainment company in North America, the United Kingdom, and Australia. The company has strategic sublicense and distribution relationships in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. The company acquires, develops, and exploits television, film and other media content in complementary products agnostically across all platforms of distribution. The company acquires content rights in various categories, with particular focus on British episodic mystery and drama, urban programming, and full-length independent motion pictures. Through long-term exclusive agreements, it licenses a set of rights to third-party programs. The company also develops, produces, and owns original programming through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Acorn Productions Limited, and its majority-owned subsidiary, Agatha Christie Limited (ACL), in addition to fitness titles through its Acacia brand. The company’s owned content includes 25 Foyle’s War made-for-TV films, and multiple fitness/wellness titles. The company exploits this content across multiple platforms, including broadcast/cable, digital distribution formats: download-to-own, download-to-rental, subscription video on demand, free video on demand; DVD and Blu-ray retail and online ecommerce; and international licensing and sales. Strategy Key elements of the company’s strategy include production and purchasing of new intellectual property rights, particularly for British scripted dramas and mysteries, and urban/African-American content; acquisition of long-term and exclusive broad exploitation rights for finished programs across key genres, such as British television, urban, independent feature films, fitness/lifestyle and documentaries that meet financial criteria of approximately 20% return-on-investment, including allocation of all direct and indirect costs through net income before taxes; expansion of content offerings on all current and emerging digital platforms as consumers migrate from hard goods to digital consumption; and expansion of international distribution footprint. Segments The company’s segments include Intellectual Property Licensing (IP Licensing); Wholesale; and Direct-to-Consumer. IP Licensing This segment includes intellectual property rights that it owns, produces and then exploits worldwide in various formats, including DVD, Blu-ray, digital, broadcast (including cable and satellite), VOD, streaming video, downloading and sublicensing. The operating activities consist of the company’s 100% interest in Foyle’s War Series 8 and Series 9, with anticipated release in late 2014 or early 2015. Also included is the company’s 64% majority interest in ACL, which holds the IP rights to approximately 80 novels and short story collections and 19 plays written by Agatha Christie and exploited globally through film, TV, stage, digital games and book publishing income streams. Wholesale This segment consists of the acquisition, content enhancement and worldwide exploitation of exclusive content in various formats. The Wholesale segment distributes the content to third parties, such as Walmart, Best Buy, Target and Costco while the Direct-to-Consumer segment distributes directly to the consumer through different exploitation channels. The company’s wholesale partners are broadcast, digital outlets and major retailers in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Australia, including Barnes & Noble, Showtime, DirectTV, and Hulu. The company has a catalog of owned and long-term licensed content that is segmented into genres, such as Acorn (British drama/mystery, including content produced by ACL), Image (independent feature films, stand-up comedy), One Village (urban), Acacia (fitness), Athena (educational) and Madacy (uniquely packaged collections of historical footage/documentaries). The company engages in the exclusive wholesale of the digital rights to its library of audio and video content. The company enters into non-exclusive arrangements with retail and consumer-direct entities whose business models include the digital delivery of content. Its digital video library contains approximately 3,200 individual video programs. S
