London, 23rd October 2017 – Vitruvian sells its shareholding in leading independent content company Tinopolis.
Headquartered in London and Llanelli, the Tinopolis Group is an international media producer and distributor with a significant presence in the global media marketplace. It is one of the largest independent television content suppliers in the UK and a producer of programmes for many of the top networks in the USA.
Ben Johnson, a Partner at Vitruvian, commented:
“The team at Tinopolis have achieved remarkable success in growing the company during our time together. Turnover has increased over threefold since our investment and the USA has become the company’s largest revenue market. The Vitruvian team would like to thank the Tinopolis management for the strong partnership and wish them every success for the next stage as a company entirely owned by the management and founders.”
Ron Jones, Executive Chairman at Tinopolis, commented:
“We worked with Vitruvian to take the company private when conditions in the public market made it difficult to deliver our growth strategy. With its investment and support that strategy has made Tinopolis a major global television producer. Our partnership began when Vitruvian was a new private equity house and we are pleased to have seen its continued growth and success. We have worked with some outstanding professionals at Vitruvian and we are grateful for their help and friendship.”
