The company had been recently having financial issues due to a number of flops and a few hostile takeover attempts by famed corporate raider Carl Icahn (who has a history of buying floundering businesses and making things worse than before). Icahn dumped his one-third stake in Lionsgate in August, 2011 for $7 a share, a significant haircut after what turned out to be the roaring success of ''Film/TheHungerGames'', which has the makings of a CashCowFranchise with as many as three sequels coming in the next five years. In January 2012, Lions Gate acquired Creator/SummitEntertainment, the studio behind the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' film franchise, for $412.5 million.
