Investment Banking

EIG leverages its strong relationships with media and entertainment companies as well as leading commercial banks, institutional investors, asset managers, private equity, venture capital firms and individual investors to deliver the best investment banking solution to each client.

The firm has particular expertise in capital raising, where we apply our significant industry expertise and relationships with venture capital, private equity, and subordinate, mezzanine, and senior debt providers to successfully execute our engagements.

We have served as arranger or principal in over 50 media and entertainment investments totaling in excess of $4 billion in the aggregate.

Since its formation in February 2010, EIG has arranged nearly $200 million in venture capital, private equity, and debt commitments for its clients.

Our past engagements range from raising early-stage venture capital for start-up entertainment ventures to the recapitalization of mature music rights companies. Working with our financial partners, we have the capacity to arrange for up to $250 million for a single transaction.

Regardless of the size or scope of our engagements, we assist our clients in creating value through the development and execution of well-conceived plans for the acquisition, divestiture or capitalization of their businesses. These plans are matched with the requirements of capital providers to ensure an alignment of interests between management and investors.

Securities placed by EIG are offered through Sword Securities LLC, a registered securities broker-dealer and member of FINRA.
