VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liquid Media Group Ltd. ("the Company," "Liquid Media" or "Liquid") (Nasdaq: YVR) today announced the completion of its acquisition of iNDIEFLIX Group Inc. ("iNDIEFLIX"), a global market leader in educational entertainment or 'edutainment'. The closing of the acquisition adds a key asset to Liquid's four-stage business solution engine, which is designed to drive sustainable growth for independent intellectual property (IP) owners and producers.
"We are delighted to welcome our talented new colleagues from iNDIEFLIX to the Liquid Media family and to be continuing along a path that will augment our growth for years to come," said Ronald Thomson, CEO of Liquid.
iNDIEFLIX is a global subscription video-on-demand streaming service focused on content with a purpose. Cofounded by award-winning Producer, Director, Costume Designer and Author Scilla Andreen, its success in providing monetization opportunities for IP owners syncs perfectly with Liquid's mission to help creatives take their professional content from inception to monetization.
"Independently produced social impact programming is in demand and more relevant than ever. Having created meaningful content and built a wide distribution infrastructure in the education, corporate and government spaces, I felt it was time to find a partner who could support our growth. I found the perfect match in Liquid Media," said Scilla Andreen, iNDIEFLIX CEO & Co-Founder. "I love working with Ron, and the entire Liquid team. Now we have access to greater resources and can tap into a family of great companies to further our mission. I'm excited about taking the good we do in the world to the next level."
Liquid Media's iNDIEFLIX will continue with its excellent work in the social impact area of edutainment, creating, promoting and distributing important films, video curriculum, educational materials and more to B2B and B2C audiences around the world, across corporate, private, education, government and public sectors. In parallel, iNDIEFLIX will play an important role in stage four of Liquid's business solution engine as the Company supports independents towards IP monetization in a shifting landscape.
Liquid acquired iNDIEFLIX for up to 2.5M common shares of Liquid, which are scheduled to be paid out to iNDIEFLIX investors across specific performance milestones in five equal tranches of 500,000 common shares each (the "Consideration Shares"). The first tranche of Consideration Shares was paid on closing, with four remaining milestones to be triggered by iNDIEFLIX revenues totaling up to US$65M in the years ahead. Additional cash is being invested in iNDIEFLIX's ongoing operations, to be applied towards working capital and production of original content for iNDIEFLIX's education and other channels. Further details of the acquisition will be available in the Company's Q3 financial statements filed on SEDAR.
