Clearwater International advises Federation Entertainment on its investment from Montefiore to support growth
Clearwater International has advised the independent European studio and production company Federation Entertainment on its investment from Montefiore to accelerate its growth internationally.
Federation Entertainment Group carries out a minority transaction with Montefiore for a total amount of approximately €50m in several phases.
Founded in 2015 by its CEO and majority shareholder Pascal Breton, Federation Entertainment is a global player in the creation, production, financing, and distribution of original productions including TV series, platform films, and documentaries, for streaming platforms and traditional TV channels. As its name suggests, the group is a federation of talented independent studios specialised in drama, fiction, and youth content. Present in seven countries and with €140m in revenue, the group is a leading independent producer and the first producer to have worked with Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon in Europe. The group, which has produced or co-produced many hits such as The Bureau and, more recently, In Therapy, and has a heavy order book with more than 65 shows currently in production.
This capital opening and bond refinancing operation will enable the group to accelerate its growth in France and internationally.
