Shares of movie studio Lions Gate Entertainment Inc. fell in after-hours trading Thursday following a quarterly earnings report that showed markedly lower revenue compared with the same quarter a year ago.
For the quarter ended June 30, the company reported revenue of $409 million, down 9 percent from the same period last year. Net income for the quarter was also down, falling 6 percent to $40.7 million (28 cents a share).
But there was good news from the company’s television production business, which saw a 73 percent increase in international television licensing revenue, largely powered by big foreign interest in hit prison dramedy “Orange is the New Black.”
