SANTA MONICA, Calif. and VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF) ("the Company"), the leading next generation studio, today emphasized the value creation potential of its proposed merger combination with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. ("MGM"). The Company filed an Amendment to Schedule 14D-9 with the Securities and Exchange Commission yesterday disclosing that it sent an October 11 proposal to MGM regarding a potential business combination between the two companies. Under the terms of the proposal, the combined company would be owned by shareholders of Lionsgate and creditors of MGM.

It would create a combined entity with enough scale to leverage all of our distribution platforms worldwide."
