A 2019 Forbes Report showed that 80% of the 700 or so films made per year lose money. Films4U are here to make sure that doesn’t happen for you.
On over 500 films, and £6bn in budget, we haven’t lost money on a film to date!
Everyone loves Movies – but not everyone makes money from them! With Films4U, you can…here’s why…
We go to great lengths to reduce risk within our private equity and EIS investments. We structure with the aim of mitigating risk and maximising investment returns, as well as to qualify for a range of investor tax reliefs under the Government’s HMRC administered Enterprise Investment Scheme (the “EIS”).
Every film project will go through an in depth review as part of a robust due diligence process including;
• An initial desktop review – we look at more than 500 films per annum, rejecting more than 90% at desktop review stage through rigorous review procedures
• Followed by a detailed in depth review – less than 50 films reach this stage. We then spend a minimum of three months reviewing all aspects of the film/company’s business, business plan, financials, projections, key management, market sector, competition, exit strategy and EIS compliance.
• Deal approval – Undertaken by the Investment Committee, our meticulous focus is on quality over quantity.
As with any financial investment, there is always an element of risk and it is very important that you do not invest what you cannot afford to lose.
While it is not possible to guarantee the commercial success of any film project, we want the best for our investors and choose projects carefully, using our experience and network to maximise every opportunity.
We identify routes to deliver a successful investment exit at the outset, and all parties are focused and incentivised towards achieving an exit within three to five years.
No matter what else you’ve done in lockdown – you’ve probably fallen prey to film streaming. Is this a passing trend or an irrevocable change in habit?
Investing in film is tempting – but can you use SEIS and EIS investment schemes to help you save takes and mitigate risk?
Considering investing in film? Films4U is a film investment group that can help – here’s why you should contact us rather than going it alone.
FILM BUDGET AND FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE RECORDS
Why do we produce films? We produce films and distribute them globally, because original screen play dominates the film market, with over 44% of the market share, and we can use our 30-year track record of success, to guarantee they get to the screen!
