Company Description

2012 was a transformative year for Lionsgate as the Company acquired Summit Entertainment in January 2012 and launched the global blockbuster THE HUNGER GAMES franchise in March 2012, emerging as a content leader in the world marketplace. The successes of the past year were the result of Lionsgate’s 12-year growth strategy in which the Company used a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions to assemble the building blocks for long-term success. Lionsgate is a far different company today than it was a few short years ago, although it remains committed to the low overhead, cost discipline, entrepreneurial business models and niche focus that have been signatures of its growth over the years

SCM employs a research intensive, value approach that often requires a contrarian philosophy and one with a time horizon measured in years. Investments are typically being made in out-of-favor companies whose securities may be declining. The portfolio on average includes 20-35 domestic equities traded on major exchanges and generally holds these securities as opposed to frequently trading many different securities.

Details Hidden

Contrarius Investment Management Ltd. is an active, contrarian manager which aims to create long-term wealth for clients by buying stocks they believe are trading below their intrinsic value and which are attractive relative to other opportunities. They follow a valuation-based investment approach, performing proprietary bottom-up research which seeks to determine the intrinsic value of an investment. The firm sells stocks when they believe they have reached their underlying intrinsic value or when they are less attractive than other opportunities, aiming to avoid the permanent loss which can result from continuing to hold a stock that ultimately corrects to fair value. Contrarius takes a long-term approach to investing, with a typical investment horizon of four years, believing that the ability to outperform in the long-term is largely determined by focusing on the long-term value of a business rather than short-term news flow.
