Media & Entertainment Transactions

What We Do

The media and entertainment (M&E) sector is one of the most dynamic, exciting and rapidly changing industries in the world. Organizations in this sector rely heavily on the expertise of trusted advisors as they execute complex financial transactions.

FTI Consulting’s M&E Transactions Group is a market leading advisory practice providing transaction advisory services (both buy-side and sell-side), financial and strategic analysis, forecasting services, valuation services, financial opinions and litigation support services.  The group has established a reputation over decades as a deeply trusted advisor to the M&E industry with a uniquely comprehensive understanding of our clients’ businesses and the marketplace.  The group is involved in high value projects across all M&E verticals (e.g. film, television, music, video games, sports), across the content production, distribution and finance landscape.

How We Help Clients

  • Strategic Advisory and Transaction Support: We provide our clients with the analytic excellence, insight and defensibility. Our advisory and transaction support services are used across a variety of M&E transactions, including capital raising support and buy- or sell-side M&A effort.
  • Data Analysis: Our television, film and music industry clients often need help analyzing large, complex data sets to distill usable information for financial modeling, valuation and to develop analytical case studies on their assets or businesses.
  • Intellectual Property and Intangible Asset Valuation Opinions: M&E organizations may face intellectual property challenges, including collateral administration, M&A efforts, financial reporting, tax reporting, transfer pricing, litigation and distressed situations. Combining our technical and entertainment industry expertise, we develop valuation opinions for intangible assets, such as intellectual property.
  • Portfolio Valuation: Private equity firms, hedge funds and other investment managers are often required to value illiquid assets. They turn to our team for an independent valuation on M&E assets.

What We Offer You
