Investing in GLE

An investment in GLE is an investment in an entertainment and media brand poised to exponentially grow over the next 24 months.  An investment in GLE hedges against risk as GLE’s investors share in GLE’s profits, not just the earnings (or losses) of a single film, television or new-media project.  The risk-reward factor is not as great as with an investment in a single project, however, an investment in GLE is a relatively inexpensive entre into the world of entertainment and media.

Investing in a GLE Property

When an investor considers a GLE project, that investor should not have to ask very many questions as our business philosophy is grounded in the concept of full disclosure.  We know what investors need to see in order to evaluate the efficacy of any particular entertainment opportunity.  Entertainment finance has changed radically over the past 20 years and has even dramatically changed over the past 3 – 4 years.  In fact, GLE was born in this brave new world of entertainment finance, and is intimately familiar with all the current and future financial models. 

GLE’s business model must necessarily tailor itself to the category of entertainment project, however, the overarching core principles of cost-effectiveness, capital preservation and protection, guaranteed distribution or sales channels, and securitization permeate throughout GLE’s projects.  Just as the production itself is a collaboration of talent, producers, directors, crew and investors, financing has become a collaboration of hard equity, soft money, long-term debt and gap debt.

GLE believes in the use of leverage, provided that use is principled and disciplined, in order to reduce the amount of equity required to produce.  GLE knows how to not only obtain minimum guarantees from distributors and tax credits from states, countries and territories, but how to monetize those security instruments (and they are security instruments in the entertainment world), obtaining debt capital for the production budget at reasonable rates, secured against those minimum-guarantee and tax-credit agreements.
