 May 18, 2012 12:56 PM

(By Balaseshan) Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. (NYSE:LGF) and Nordisk Film have concluded a new multi-year output agreement over distribution of feature films in Scandinavia.

Under the deal, Nordisk will distribute in Scandinavia feature films from both Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment, which Lionsgate recently acquired.

The agreement extends Nordisk's existing output arrangement with Summit to encompass the entire Lionsgate family of feature films and was announced Friday at the Cannes Film Festival.

The recent merger of Lionsgate and Summit allows Lionsgate to bring a dramatically expanded portfolio of product to its distribution partners around the world and enables the company to achieve significant economies of scale and an even higher level of consistency and predictability in its global business.
