In 2017, Gaumont decided to sell its movie theater operation business to focus on production, particularly series production in the U.S., Germany and the UK. 2018 and 2019 represent a transition and development period for these new activities, which should start to yield results in 2020.

  • 2018 REVENUE

Consolidated revenue for 2018 amounted to €196.2 million, versus €177.0 million in the previous year.

  • Cinema production

Revenue from the cinema production and distribution business amounted to €95.5 million in 2018, compared to €96.9 million in 2017:

  • revenue from film distribution in French movie theaters stood at €20.4 million in 2018, compared to €30.7 million in 2017. In 2018, the 10 movies released in theaters sold 8.4 million tickets, compared to the 12.2 million tickets sold in 2017 for 13 movies;
     
  • revenue from video and video on demand distribution in France amounted to €12.4 million in 2018, versus €11.6 million in 2017. Physical video sales increased, with more than 1.2 million video units sold. This was mainly due to the performance of the new releases. The same applies to digital sales (VOD and SVOD);
     
  • sales of broadcasting rights to French television channels amounted to €24.0 million in 2018, compared with €18.6 million in 2017. Sales of catalog titles to historical television channels and digital channels increased, with close to 190 films sold during the year;
     
  • revenue from international film production and distribution stood at €33.3 million in 2018, versus €30.9 million in 2017. Sales of new releases were down whereas sales of catalog films were in line with the previous period.
     
  • Television production

Revenue from the production and distribution of television programs totaled €92.0 million in 2018, compared to €74.6 million in 2017.

Sales of American series accounted for €75.4 million of revenue in 2018, versus €67.8 million in 2017. Two series were delivered to Netflix for online release in November 2018.

Revenue from the production and distribution of television drama and cartoon series came to €16.6 million in 2018, versus €6.8 million in 2017. It includes sales of two six-episodes drama series, broadcasted respectively on Canal+ and France 2, as well as episodes from three cartoon series for Disney and France 5.

  • 2018 RESULTS

Gaumont recorded a Group share net loss of €8.8 million in 2018, as against a profit of €123.0 million in 2017.

The 2017 and 2018 annual results are not comparable: 2017 profit includes the gain on disposal of the 34% minority interest in Les Cinémas Pathé Gaumont for €143.9 million, and the €8.4 million contribution from this business to Gaumont’s results until the disposal date.

Operating income from cinema production and distribution, excluding overheads, totaled €20.5 million in 2018, compared to €12.6 million in 2017.

Operating income from the television production business in France and in the United States, excluding overheads, amounted to €9.0 million in 2018, versus €9.9 million in 2017.

Revenue from the holding and real estate businesses totaled €6.0 million in 2018, mainly due to trademark royalties, compared to €11.5 million in 2017.

Net financial income stood at €0.2 million in 2018, compared to a net financial expense of €8.1 million in 2017. The change reflects favorable foreign exchange rate effects.

Income tax expense for the period totaled €0.6 million, versus €2.0 million in 2017.

  • EQUITY AND BORROWINGS

Group share of consolidated equity stood at €272.1 million as of December 31, 2018, versus €305.1 million as of December 31, 2017. The decrease in equity was due essentially to the year loss and to the purchase of non-controlling interests from subsidiaries in the United States.

Gaumont’s borrowings have fallen. Net cash stood at €20.1 million as of December 31, 2018, versus net borrowings of €27.7 million as of December 31, 2017. This mainly includes a positive cash balance of €130 million, the Gaumont SA bond for €60 million and self-liquidating loans of €42 million, based on proceeds from pre-financing and release of American series.
