Lions Gate’s acquisition of Starz is aiding its Media Networks revenues. Investments in Starz premium programming like Power, American Gods and Outlander, and its retention rate boosted domestic subscriber growth. Additionally, partnerships with the likes of Amazon, Hulu and Liberty Global to showcase Starz’s content are likely to expand its international footprint and boost global subscriber growth. Moreover, Lions Gate’s continuing partnerships with the likes of Universal Music Group (UMG) and 3 Arts among others bode well. However, increasing investments in areas like content, marketing and partnerships are expected to hurt profitability, at least in the near term. Moreover, increasing competition from other media companies and streaming video service providers remains a headwind. Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis.
