Acquisition will create one of Europe’s leading content companies as well as bolster both companies’ distribution power.
Under the terms of the agreement, Hans Ulrich Stoef will continue to serve as chief executive officer of m4e; however, in the course of the closing, the former members of the supervisory board of m4e–Oliver Jansen, Ceese Wessels and Andreas Kinsky–have resigned their offices.
In addition, the executive board of m4e has filed an application with the district court of Munich in order to complete a supervisory board of m4e with Hans Bourlon, Koen Peeters and David Lloys as well as three representatives from Studio 100.
The combined group, which was announced last month, will aim to create one of the leading kids’ and family entertainment and content companies in Europe and will enable m4e to continue investing in new content and its worldwide exploration. It will also help bolster both companies’ local and international distribution power.
Studio 100 is known for its programs such as "Maya the Bee," "Arthur and the Minimoys" and “Heidi,” among others, while m4e is known for properties such as "Wissper," "Mia and me" and "Tip the Mouse," among others.
