    Description:

    Saban Capital Group, Inc. is a private investment firm specializing in the media, communications and entertainment industries. Based in Los Angeles, SCG was established in 2001 by Haim Saban, founder of Fox Family Worldwide, a global television broadcasting, production, distribution, merchandising and music company that was sold to the Walt Disney Corporation in 2001 in a $5.2 billion transaction. The firm makes both controlling and minority investments in public and private companies throughout the world, including in Germany's biggest television group, Israel's leading broadcasting network and Israel's national phone company. In addition, SCG owns and operates a music company, Saban Music Group. In 2008, the firm formed Saban Ventures, which invests in early-stage to mid-stage start-ups in digital media, mobile, and consumer Internet. SCG's current private equity investments include Univision (the premier Spanish-language media company in the US); Tiger Gate Entertainment (a joint venture with Lionsgate to operate branded pay television channels across Asia); Taomee (China's leading children's online entertainment company), Celestial Tiger Entertainment (a venture with Lionsgate and Astro, Malaysia's largest pay TV platform, to launch and operate new branded pay television channels across Asia); MNC (Indonesia's largest and only vertically-integrated media company); and Partner Communications (a leading telecommunications company in Israel). Saban Brands LLC, an affiliate of SCG, was formed in 2010 to acquire, manage and license entertainment properties and consumer brands across media and consumer platforms globally, and currently holds the rights to Power Rangers and Paul Frank Industries in its portfolio. Additionally, SCG founded Saban Films in 2014 to acquire and distribute independent feature films in North America. With another office in Singapore, SCG actively manages a globally diversified portfolio of investments across public equities, credit, alternative investments, and real property assets.
