The Fund will focus on three clear segments – Music Scores for Film and Television, Comic Books, and Video games. Other sectors may be included at a later date. Investment funds will be used to subscribe for shares in companies operating predominantly in these segments of the industry. The aim is to focus on creating portfolios for investors which have asset backing and solid income streams, whilst also benefiting from favourable tax reliefs which are supported by the UK Government.
The following partner companies will likely be used to source deals within their relevant sector in the first instance:
Atlantic Screen Music Limited - responsible for creating, protecting, administering and monetising rights in musical compositions on behalf of musicians, songwriters and composers.
Skyrocket Games - a video games development company that is developing, marketing and distributing video games created from Film and Television IP.
AfterShock Comics LLC - a comic book company that combines the creative edge of an independent comic book publisher with the strengths and experience of a traditional powerhouse to produce original comic book content
The Fund Manager will likely look for an exit in years 4 to 5.
Music scores: For music content, this will entail the sale of the catalogue or the companies themselves to a major music publisher or to Atlantic Screen Group.
Comics: For the comics, the IPs will be sold to a major comic book company or to the likes of Netflix, Amazon or Facebook for future exploitation of the IP.
Video Games: The Games IP created will be sold to a major games company
