FFI Holdings, the holding company of Film Finances Inc., has acquired UK film distributor Signature Entertainment.

Founded in 2011, Signature has released more than 600 titles across the fiction and non-fiction spaces  into the British market, including documentaries Spinning Plates and Last Call at the Oasis, and acts as an aggregator for such streaming services as Netflix, Amazon Prime and Sky.

The acquisition continues to expand FFI Holdings’ platform, which now includes global distribution capabilities, post-production services, and entertainment risk insurance. FFI currently has a theatrical documentary collaboration with IMAX and Warner Brothers, Pandas. 

Financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

“We look forward to working with Marc Goldberg and his team as they expand their distribution business which is especially well poised in the streaming arena,” said Steven Ransohoff, CEO of FFI Holdings PLC, in a statement. “Signature will afford us excellent opportunities to expand the reach of the rest of FFI’s platform into a new captive distribution channel.”
