Founded in 2011, Signature has released over 600 titles and acts as an aggregator for Netflix, Amazon Prime and Sky and other streaming services. 

The consideration is US$5mln cash upfront followed by four annual payments based on underlying earnings.

FFI dominates the space in the UK for completion contracts, in effect an insurance policy to guarantee a film gets made, but has diversified recently into post-production services and distribution capabilities.

A documentary collaboration with IMAX and Warner Brothers, "Pandas", has also now been launched in the US.
