Icahn & Co.

Carl C. Icahn released the following statement today:

"We are holders of significant positions in both Lions Gate stock and MGM debt. Today, Lions Gate has made a proposal to combine these two companies. We believe that this combination of Lions Gate and MGM would enhance value for all constituencies and we believe this proposal as submitted is far better for MGM holders than the current proposal to combine MGM with Spyglass. In addition, we also believe such a combination transaction would enhance the value of Lions Gate shares. However, we intend to continue to pursue our lawsuits regarding Lions Gate's recent dilutive transaction with Mark Rachesky. Whether or not we prevail in those lawsuits, we intend to continue to support a combination of Lions Gate and MGM. Our support for this combination is conditioned on the combined company having satisfactory corporate governance provisions."

The terms and conditions of the tender offer by Mr. Icahn's affiliates to acquire any and all of Lions Gate's outstanding common shares for $7.50 per share, which will expire at 8:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 22, 2010, unless extended or withdrawn, are set forth in an Offer to Purchase, Letter of Transmittal and other related materials that have been distributed to holders of Lions Gate's common shares and were filed with the SEC as exhibits to the Icahn Group's amended Schedule TO and with the Canadian securities authorities on SEDAR.
