Netflix orders feature-length adaptation of young adult novel The Kissing Booth from Komixx Entertainment.

The children’s producer optioned the rights to Beth Reekles romantic novel from online publishing platform Wattpad, where the ebook has been read 19 million times since it was uploaded in 2012.  

The story is set in the US and follows sixteen-year-old Elle Evans and the ups and downs of her romance with the hottest boy in school, her best friend’s brother, Noah.

Investors

As an independent producer and entertainment rights owner, Komixx is targeting the world-wide family audience market estimated at approximately $1.3 trillion*

The company’s mission is to generate IP (intellectual property), licence revenue and build assets and value from investing in, producing and managing family entertainment brands. Its management team is fully committed to building Komixx into a large independent producer and entertainment rights owner with a corporate valuation in excess of £20million.

Fully recognising the risk management requirements of equity investors, Komixx employs a unique set of financial and creative strategies for selecting, financing and exploiting entertainment rights, avoiding more speculative, higher risk approaches adopted elsewhere.

Its expertise covers the creation of exclusive strategic alliances, employing proprietary market research and sophisticated structured finance, and a proven digital distribution and advertising strategy.

Komixx also provide a match for investors’ expectations in the intellectual property rights of character properties. Investing in intellectual property rights alone, with lead-in times from the exploitation of character properties to peak sales revenues typically taking 3-7 years, is a less attractive proposition compared with pure equity investors, especially for a typical three-year exit strategy.

Komixx’s approach is different.

As a producer, and an intellectual rights brand management business, investors have access to a trading company’s positive revenues from each production. The company also combines creative expertise with strong commercial and financial capabilities, built around a versatile, entertainment rights production business model.

This is possibly the most exciting time to invest in media rights. The opportunities and innovation found in the digital revolution are immense, and entertainment represents the largest of those opportunities, especially for media consumption and distribution.

Strategy

As a forward-looking business, Komixx has a mission to generate licence revenue and build assets and value from investing in, producing and managing family entertainment rights. The management team is committed to building Komixx into a large independent producer and entertainment rights owner with a corporate valuation in excess of £20million.

The management team at Komixx employs a unique set of financial and creative strategies for selecting, financing and exploiting entertainment rights, avoiding more speculative, higher risk approaches adopted elsewhere.

Business Model

As a business at the forefront of digital media innovation, Komixx’s goal is the creation of imaginative and highly visual family entertainment, through a branded-portfolio that includes enduring content and global intellectual properties. It also provides a fully risk-managed investment for shareholders, with strong capital growth potential.

At its heart, Komixx is a modern production and intellectual rights business, run by people possessing considerable, commercial expertise.

Established in 2007, the company’s management team has proven track-records in the industry and include a BAFTA award-winning producer, an advertising and global brand director and a private equity and asset manager.

Delivering audience-led, creative solutions based on proprietary market research techniques, Komixx can take initiatives forward either as Komixx Entertainment, or participating in joint ventures with established brands, illustrated by its partnership with Random House Children’s Publishers.

The business also recognises commercial realities.

At Komixx, business strategies encompass the re-examination of media finance and production strategies from the ground up. For example, web and mobile devices have created additional distribution platforms that allow shorter paths to the consumer for revenue optimisation. And everything at Komixx possesses a global perspective, from finance through to production and distribution.

While fully able to adapt and embrace multi-platform, digital media entertainment channels, Komixx is able to balance the entrepreneurial, imaginative and inspirational with strong investment backing and significant financial acumen.
