Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE® company (NYSE: LGF) is a worldwide theatrical motion picture development, financing, production and distribution company within the Lionsgate group of companies. Summit Entertainment has been a leading foreign sales and production company since 1993. In April 2007 it emerged as a full motion picture studio when Robert G. Friedman, the former Vice Chairman and Chief Operating Officer of Paramount Pictures Motion Picture Group, and Patrick Wachsberger, founder, Chief Executive Officer, and President of Summit Entertainment L.P., raised significant financing through Merrill Lynch to finance a full production slate and distribute its own pictures in the United States. Since 2007 Summit Entertainment has achieved major success with The "Twilight Saga"" franchise and other notable pictures including "Red", "Knowing", 2012 Best Picture Oscar® winner "The Hurt Locker", and the "Step Up" franchise. Summit Entertainment was acquired by Lionsgate, a diversified global entertainment company, in January 2012. The acquisition brought together two of the leading independant studios and united two of the most prestigious brands in the entertainment space. In the same month, Friedman and Wachsberger were named Co-Chairs of the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group to oversee all aspects of Lionsgate's domestic and international feature film acquisition, production and distribution business as wellas the home entertainment releases of theatrical feature films. Summit Entertainment has a full slate of motion pictures in its pipeline and continues to develop, produce and distribute its own theatrical motion pictures targeted for the worldwide market. Summit has an extensive network of output partners worldwide, including in the United States, Universal Studios Home Entertainment for physical DVD/Blu-ray distribution, iTunes, In Demand and other leading video on demand services, and Showtime and HBO for pay television.
