  3. Internationalmedia Strategy

  4. > Internationalmedia Strategy IM is in the fortunate position to be able to cut back on film development as it already has several promising projects ready for greenlighting over the next two years Development IM IM will adapt its overhead cost structure as development and distribution face strategic operative changes, e.g. one or several domestic / foreign distribution deals Enhancing market acceptance through one or several domestic / foreign distribution deals Market Acceptance Overhead Demand Supply IM will find a balanced market position


  5. Internationalmedia Strategy Market Acceptance

  6. > Market Acceptance Competitive Advantage: Intermedia differentiates itself through soft money (e.g. tax funds in Germany and Netherlands, Sale-and-Leasebacks and Government Subsidies in multiple foreign jurisdictions) and its foreign sales/servicing and has produced studio level films without the benefit of a studio deal Distribution Company Production Financing Domestic Foreign Foreign Soft Foreign Sales Features Studio Bank Studio Deal Output Money Sales Servicing Deals Intermedia Spyglass New Regency Mandalay Beacon Revolution Competitive Disadvantage: White spots are competitive disadvantages, especially under difficult market conditions, as it is hard to push film projects into the market. A domestic/foreign distribution deals would significantly increase its competitive position in the market Strategic opportunity if closing a distribution deal

  7. > Market Acceptance Internationalmedia will provide its distribution partners with two targeted slates of films Rationale: Films with budgets over 75 million US$ and under 25 million US$ prove to have higher profit potential than films with budgets in between • Event/Tentpole Slate: Intermedia will produce two to four high concept, star driven films annually with budgets greater than 75 million US$ • Genre/Concept Slate: Intermedia will produce or acquire two to four films annually with budgets less than 25 million US$, targeted by genre (Scream) or concept/demographic (American Pie) IM focuses on the profitable low and high budget films

  8. Internationalmedia’s distribution strategy has three primary elements: Domestic: Secure a multi-picture distribution deal for four to five films per year. The balance will be distributed on a case by case basis. Foreign: Negotiate selective distribution deals in two key territories with guaranteed TV revenues Foreign: Continue to pre-sell films in other territories on an individual or small package basis; alternatively, sell all foreign rights to a single studio Other elements include: IEG will produce and distribute one to two films each year Intermedia will be opportunistic in acquiring and distributing third party produced films The distribution group will service 3-5 non-Intermedia films annually > Market Acceptance Distribution strategy secures constant output
