New TV production company acquisition ! RNS Number : 1940K Entertainment One Ltd 09 April 2018 Acquisition of UK-based Whizz Kid Entertainment Entertainment One Ltd. today announces that it has acquired a 70% controlling stake in Whizz Kid Entertainment Limited ("Whizz Kid"), a UK-based non-scripted TV production company, from the Whizz Kid Sellers. The acquisition further enhances eOne's non-scripted television production capabilities into the UK, in line with the Group's strategy. Based in the UK, Whizz Kid was founded in 2006 by Malcolm Gerrie, and has gone on to become a fast-growing and successful non-scripted television production company delivering multiple hit shows including nine seasons of Ex on the Beach, the popular format currently being adapted by eOne for MTV in the US, and Lip Sync Battle UK, and has long-standing relationships with key UK broadcasters including the BBC, Sky, Channel 4, ITV and Channel 5. eOne has acquired a 70% controlling stake in Whizz Kid for consideration of £6.9m, which will be satisfied by payment of £5.0m in cash and the issuance of 637,952 Entertainment One Ltd. common shares (the "Consideration Shares"). A distribution of excess cash held by Whizz Kid on closing is expected to result in a payment of approximately £1.6m to the Whizz Kid Sellers. Additionally, put and call options have been agreed, with consideration at a capped amount, which will enable eOne to acquire the remaining 30% stake after a five year period. Whizz Kid's results will be fully consolidated in eOne's financial statements. In its audited financial statements for the year ended 31 March 2017, Whizz Kid reported revenues of £14.2m, profit before tax of £3.3m and gross assets of £6.3m. Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended 31 March 2017 amounted to "1.6m (2016: £1.0m). Malcolm Gerrie and Lisa Chapman will continue to lead Whizz Kid and, as part of the transaction, have entered into new, long term employment agreements. In addition, eOne has also entered into a distribution agreement with Whizz Kid, which will provide the Group with access to high quality, non-scripted programming and formats for exploitation globally. The Whizz Kid Sellers are comprised of: Ingenious Capital Management Ltd., Malcolm Gerrie, Lisa Chapman, Katherine Allen, Lisa McCormack, Terence Back, Tracey Lloyd, Shane Murray and Caroline Roseman. Following completion, applications will be made for the Consideration Shares to be admitted to a premium listing on the Official List and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's Main Market for listed securities (together, "Admission"). It is expected that Admission will take place at 8.00 a.m. on 12 April 2018. Total voting rights Following Admission becoming effective, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 460,749,271 common shares with voting rights. Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company will be 460,749,271. This figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules. Darren Throop, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "The addition of Whizz Kid to eOne's non-scripted television business gives us a strong footing in one of the most creative markets in the world. I'm pleased to welcome Malcolm, Lisa and the Whizz Kid team to the Group, and I'm excited about how this new relationship will deliver great new series on both sides of the Atlantic."

Good to see a close again above the 300p threshold on very modest volume, after falling back from the recent high of 323p during the "volatile correction" 3 weeks ago.

Hard to make out from this chinese website but it appears that Peppa pig has had a surge of popularity in china in the last few months after the release of the 5th season. "Piggy's popularity has risen sharply since October 2017, even rising to 136,000 in December." "In one year, the total number of domestic platforms has been broadcast Total more than 10 billion times. In an interview with the media, Eunaugh Chen, director of the Entertainment Group at Asia, the authorized unit of "Pig Page," said in a media interview that she had never seen an animated film capable of achieving 10 billion performances a year . Up to now, the "Piggy" Complete Works in Tencent video playback volume has reached 16.45 billion times, the amount of love Fantastic Art also has 11.32 billion times." "The popularity of "Piggy" is directly reflected in the Baidu Index. Since 2016, the search index of Piggy has gradually increased, reaching a peak after 2017 with the highest search index reaching 160,000 and the average weekly search index at More than 85,000, the popularity is evident." hTTp://www.sohu.com/a/223046462_104421

Unless Darren has a short term need for the cash, then this suggests the company will not be sold anytime soon.

Probably why the share price has been a bit down recently. Now those shares have been disposed of, we might start to go back up. Be interesting to see how we open today.

I can see how Throop plans to double the size of ETO. He will issue endless amounts of new shares until the number of shares in issue have doubled! What a great idea.Concentrate on EBITDA as any amortizing of all that goodwill could be tricky.EBITDA is the new normal for profits it seems...until it isn't. That said, a large media company may well pounce this year so round about 280 p worth a punt as long as the market does not suddenly start taking a dim view of companies with poor cash flow.
