Source: Securitization News


Two or three new movie securitizations are set to hit investor screens within the next couple of months, and that's after two blue-chip deals from The Walt Disney Co . and Marvel Studios have already closed. The tail-end of a bumper year is likely to also witness the debut deal from Bob and Harvey Weinstein 's new company. There could be $750-900 million of film securitizations in the next two months, predicted Eric Hedman , director in Standard & Poor's new assets group.

The Weinstein brothers formed The Weinstein Co . after leaving Disney in March and are expected to complete a $500 million securitization based on the firm's films. Another deal will securitize a slate of films bought by a third party from two different studios. This would be the first time a single deal will finance two studios, one industry official said. A call to Harvey Weinstein was referred to Sarah Levinson , spokeswoman, who declined comment.

Greater investor acceptance of film securitizations have contributed to the increase in volume, which include the Disney and Marvel transactions that closed earlier this year.
