In the context of this merger, the group has completed a capital increase primarily subscribed by Ohana Capital, AB Group and Laurent Dassault (LDRP).

The merger of the labels founded by Dimitri Rassam and Aton Soumache has created a major player in Cinema and Audiovisual in France, active in both animation (The Little Prince, Iron Man, Le Petit Nicolas, etc..) and live movies (Le Prénom, Mauvaise Fille, Gibraltar, etc..).
