In the past two years the market conditions for Internet based Television has grown dramatically and Analysts predictions of Over The Top (OTT) Television including Keegan/Minerva are being realized. “FilmOn is not only positioned to be the leader in this space but to dominate a large market share over its competitors,” said Hans Zimmerman of Regan & Delloite.
FilmOn Global delisted its German offering in 2009 and has returned to the market almost two years to the day offering it European Division with an initial market capitalization of 43 Million Euros. Top tier Frankfurt market maker 886AG (886AG-Specialist), is handling FilmOn.com PLC stock.
FilmOn Founder and CEO Alki David who is listed as 45th richest man in the UK by the Times Rich List stated in a keynote speech at the recent Credit Suisse Cable TV Conference in London, “When we first listed FilmOn Global in 2009, with a market cap of 500 Million Euros it seemed at the time unfortunate that the World’s financial markets crashed. This of course hampered our efforts to build a relationship with the German and other European markets. However the silver lining metaphor has come true on many levels and because in the past two years I have continued to personally fund the company and develop our live-network technologies. The opening of the Los Angeles Office has also helped us increase our huge content offering with American channel partners and strategic alliances based in the US.”
Mr. David added, “Please note that FilmOn PLC is happy to buy back the shares sold in the 2009 listing from any investor with 10% interest paid on the price they bought stock at. Claims should be made directly to email@example.com.”
