leading his team at Lionsgate (NYSE:LGF-A), and is currently the Executive Vice
President of FP&A and Strategic Planning. Mr. Knap is part of the team that handled
$7 billion in capital market transactions, including the $4.4 billion acquisition of

"WR is delighted to welcome Ulrik to the Board of Directors, and I look forward to
working closely with him in Los Angeles. Ulrik has been at Lionsgate for over a
decade, the Hollywood studio that produced the "Hunger Games" films and just
distributed the Golden Globe winner "La La Land". His vast experience from
Lionsgate will be a great addition to WR Entertainment."
"WR er svært tilfreds med å kunne ønske Ulrik velkommen i styret, og jeg ser frem til
å jobbe tett med han i Los Angeles. Ulrik har vært hos Lionsgate i over et tiår,
Hollywood studioet som produserte "Hunger Games" filmene og nå nylig distribuerte
Golden Globe vinneren "La La Land". Hans lange erfaring fra Lionsgate vil bli et
fremragende tilskudd til WR Entertainment"
