Eight Advisory has carried out the financial vendor due diligence related to the sale of a minority share in Studio 100 Group encompassing both the Media and Theme parks businesses.
Studio 100 Group is one of the largest independent family entertainment companies globally – with offices in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Poland, Australia and USA.

The Studio 100 catalogue is the biggest independent content library of kids and family entertainment programs, led by international flagship brands such as “Maya the Bee” or “Heidi” and new productions like “100% Wolf”. Other than the creation of audiovisual content, Studio 100 Group further extends its own content into seven amusement parks across Belgium and neighboring countries (NL, GER, PL) and has a strong track-record in live-entertainment shows inspired on its live-action characters. The Groups’ ongoing success of live-entertainment spectacle musicals focused on senior audience further contributes to the growth of the Group.
Eight Advisory would like to thank the Studio 100 and Studio Plopsa management teams, the shareholders for their trust and BNP Parisbas Fortis and other advisors for the collaboration on this important project.
