In what it termed a “transition year,” with no new “Taken” or “Lucy” and nine English-language movies still to release, EuropaCorp posted an annual net loss of €27.7 million ($30.8 million) for 2015-16, the company announced Friday. Operating losses were €22.3 million ($24.8 million).
The downbeat results for the financial year ending March 31 are broadly in line with expectations: EuropaCorp, led by Luc Besson, had already issued a profit warning before posting its numbers. Its share price edged down in early-morning trading Friday on the Paris bourse, losing 1.8%. EuropaCorp stock has already fallen by 17.7% in 2016.
The company’s losses come after a 2014-15 financial year when it registered €16.2 million ($18 million) in net profit thanks to returns from “Taken 3” and Scarlett Johansson-starrer “Lucy.” By contrast, EuropaCorp released just five movies in 2015-16, only one of which received global distribution.
Consolidated annual revenues were down 35% to €147.3 million ($163.7 million) from €226.9 million ($252.2 million) in 2014-15.
