Centricus, a London-based investment firm, has acquired a majority stake in SK Global Entertainment, a film and television production and finance company.
SK Global is the producer of the film Crazy Rich Asians. Earlier this year, SK Global acquired Critical Content, a production company focused on unscripted television series including MTV’s Catfish and Netflix’s Get Organized with The Home Edit. With the investment, Centricus looks to provide additional capital to support SK Global’s growth strategy through IP ownership and financing strategic acquisitions of complementary businesses.
Latham & Watkins LLP served as legal advisor to Centricus and Eisner LLP served as lead counsel to SK Global.
