TV sector continues to lag behind film division

MONTREAL — Canuck film and TV company Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. reported increased revenue but plunging profits for the first quarter of its fiscal year.

Net loss for the quarter, excluding an operating loss at Mandalay Pictures, was $2.3 million. In the same period last year, the company earned $17,000.

Including the Mandalay Pictures losses, Lions Gate’s losses for the quarter were $3.1 million. Lions Gate owns a 45% stake in Mandalay Pictures, but it picks up 100% of the operating losses.
