Feltheimer has been at the Lionsgate helm since March 2000, longer than any of his studio peers. But now the CEO is at a crossroads as he grapples with a prolonged stock slump amid questions about his strategic path. The company rebuffed a reported $40-per-share takeover offer from Hasbro in February 2018, only to see its stock fall below $10. Lionsgate is seen as a takeover target once again after word surfaced that CBS offered to buy Starz, which Lionsgate had bought for $4.4 billion in 2016. The company sold its 50 percent interest in Pop TV to CBS in March and in September announced plans to build a $100 million studio complex outside of NYC. For now, Lionsgate is focusing on film and TV production, boasting a cinema hit with “John Wick 3” and 80 TV projects in development.
