NORTH AMERICA–DHX Media reported a massive increase in earnings for the first quarter of fiscal 2018, which ended Sept. 30, 2017, primarily due to the acquisitive growth from Peanuts and Strawberry Shortcake.
EUROPE–DHX Media has teamed up with Tencent in a multi-series deal to bring shows such as “Teletubbies,” “Strawberry Shortcake,” “Inspector Gadget” and “Super Why” to audiences in China via its streaming platform.
DHX Media has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the entertainment division of Iconix Brand Group, including an 80 percent controlling interest in the Peanuts brand and 100 percent of the Strawberry Shortcake brand for $345 million.
DHX Media has partnered with Nickelodeon to air 20 half-hour episodes of its new original CGI animated series “Massive Monster Mayhem.”
DHX Media’s co-founder Michael Donovan and Steven DeNure were individually honored on Wednesday evening at galas held in recognition of their contributions to the film and TV industries.
Thanks to sale of the Peanuts and Strawberry Shortcake brands to DHX Media, a deal that closed Monday, Iconix Brand Group has seen a substantial reduction of its debt.
