            Michael Burns has been Vice Chairman of Lionsgate since 2000. He and CEO Jon Feltheimer have been the principal architects of Lionsgate's evolution into the leading independent filmed entertainment studio through organic growth and accretive strategic acquisitions. With the acquisitions of Artisan Entertainment, Trimark Holdings and other available libraries, Lionsgate now has a 5000-title library and an exciting, commercially potent slate of 18 feature film releases a year.

            Lionsgate's feature films have generated more than $300 million at the domestic box office during each of the past two years, including such recent number one box office hits as Saw II, Hostel, Madea's Family Reunion and the Academy Award ® winning Crash, which earned four Oscars, including Best Picture. The highly diversified company also features a vibrant television business with four prime time cable network series, including the critical sensation Weeds, a $500-million-a-year home entertainment business and a 29% interest in a video-on-demand company CinemaNow, showcasing Internet-delivered feature films drawn from most of the major studios.

            On the entrepreneurial front, Mr. Burns has served as chairman of Ignite Entertainment, a Los Angeles-based entertainment production company, was cofounder of the Hollywood Stock Exchange (www.hsx.com) and serves as chairman and cofounder of Novica.com (in association with National Geographic), a company with a global infrastructure enabling thousands of artists around the world to directly access the global marketplace through online and wholesale channels.

            He is an executive producer on the upcoming Employee of the Month starring Dane Cook and Jessica Simpson, as well as a producer on the Cannes Film Festival's Fipresci Prize winner, Bug directed by William Friedkin which is slated for release in fall 2006.

            Burns graduated with a B.S. from Arizona State University and received his M.B.A. from the John E. Anderson Graduate School of Management at the University of California at Los Angeles.
