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. Strategy The key elements of the company’s strategy include acquisition of long-term and exclusive broad exploitation rights for finished programs across key genres; production and purchase of new intellectual property rights, particularly for British scripted dramas and mysteries, and urban/African-American content; expansion of content offerings on all 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 The IP Licensing segment includes intellectual property rights that the company owns, produces and then exploits worldwide in various formats, including DVD, Blu-ray, digital, broadcast (including cable and satellite), video on demand, streaming video, downloading, and sublicensing. Wholesale Wholesale and Direct-to-Consumer segments consist of the acquisition, content enhancement and worldwide exploitation of exclusive content in the same markets as the company’s owned content. The Wholesale segment exploits the content to third parties, such as Walmart, Best Buy, Target, Amazon and Costco while the Direct-to-Consumer segment distributes directly to the consumer through different exploitation channels. The company markets and exploits its exclusive content through agreements that generally range from 5 to 25 years in duration. The company engages in the exclusive licensing 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. The company’s digital retailers include Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, Hulu, Microsoft Xbox Live Marketplace, Sony PlayStation, YouTube/Google, Vudu, Vevo, Intel, Roku and Samsung. The company’s partners in the video on demand space include DirecTV, Dish, inDemand, AT&T Uverse, Vubiquity and Warner Digital Distribution. It also exploits its product to cable networks in the United States. Outside North America and the U.K., the company sublicenses distribution in the areas of home entertainment, television and digital through distribution partners, such as Universal Music Group International, Starz, BET International, Warner Music Australia and Universal Pictures Australia, each of which pays it a royalty for their distribution of its products. The company’s key distribution partners are Video Products Distributors, Ingram Entertainment, ITV Global Enterprises and All3Media. Key rental customers are Netflix and Redbox. Direct-to-Consumer The Direct-to-Consumer segment distributes film and television content through the company’s e-commerce Websites, mail-order catalogs and its proprietary, subscription-based, digitally streaming channels (Acorn TV, The Urban Movie Channel (UMC) and Acacia TV). The segment also sells complementary merchandise through the company’s mail-order catalogs: Acorn and Acacia. The Direct-to-Consumer segment exploits the same film and television content as the Wholesale segment but exploits the content directly in the U.S. and the U.K. to consumers through various proprietary subscription video on demand channels and in the company’s catalogs (Acorn and Acacia) and its e-commerce Websites. During 2014, the company delivered 21.5 million catalogs and flyers of which 20.4 million were delivered in the U.S. and 900,000 were delivered in the U.K. The company had approximately 4.4 million visitors in 2014 to its e-commerce Websites with 4.7% of the visitors purchasing the company’s products. Through its brands, Acorn and Acacia, the company’s product offering includes DVDs, lifestyle products for the discerning British mystery consumer, apparel, jewelry, and decorative household items. In 2014, the company launched UMC, an urban digital proprietary
