May 30th 2008 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on Pinewood Shepperton (PWS.L, LSE:PWS, LON:PWS) entitled "Smoothing The Revenues". In summary, the report says:
Our visit to the company last week showed the extent of progress in broadening the sources of revenue to diversify from comparatively volatile feature film work. Investment in studios and supporting facilities, together with the concept of the media park bringing in associated skills and services, is helping to attract film and television productions beyond the blockbusters for which it is famous. Utilisation across the studios is improving, with the ability to switch content production between the different sites helping efficiencies.
