BONA FILM GROUP Founded in 2003, Bona Film Group Limited is a leading film entertainment company in China, with solid financial backing and fully integrated business model encompassing film distribution, film production, exhibition, advertising and talent agency. Bona is the largest privately owned film distributor in China, as well as the first privately owned company to obtain a film distribution license from the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (“SARFT”). From 2004 to 2006, we have been consecutively recognized as “Outstanding Distribution Company for Domestically Produced Films” from SARFT. Bona pioneered the establishment of overseas film distribution workshop in HK in 2008 with our distribution coverage expanded into Greater China, SEA, Japan, Korean, The United Staes and Europe. In 2003, Bona set foot into the upstream sector of the film industry by investing in film production. Bona has invested, produced and co-produced a variety of films ever since and successfully became one of the leaders in the realm of film production in China. In order to execute the “fully integrated value chain” coverage strategy, the company moved downstream to film exhibition business since 2005. Now it owns and operates six modern movie theaters in major cities that are affiliated with leading theater chains. Bona anticipates continued expansion of film exhibition and establishment of the brand in theater operations. Bona ventured into film advertising and talent agency in 2005 and 2008 respectively to further consolidate and enhance core distribution business. Bolstered by the vast film slate, nationwide film promotion campaigns and scale in distribution, their advertising company has exhibited the ability to deliver innovative, effective and unprecedented brand building and communication campaigns for our clients. With establishment of their own talent managing company and collaboration with the well-know artist Bing Bing Fan, we are well-positioned to become one of the most competitive talent management agencies in China. In early 2007, Bona became the first privately-owned film company in China in securing international private equity funds, having successfully closed investments from two of the most prominent venture capital groups in the high-growth and cultural industries – Sequoia Capital China and SIG Asia Investments. The cash injections not only fueled the company’s expansion into other sectors in the film industry but also put it under the limelight of the media of the investment circles. In June 2009, Bona obtained 2nd round financing from Matrix Partners and Sequoia Capital, who together injected another RMB100 million. The success of our pre-IPO financing well demonstrated our leading position in the film distribution, investment and production field, our strong management team and the wide brand recognition within the industry. Through strategic partnership and alliance, Bona has aggregated the best resources in the Chinese film industry and achieved extensive presence across the entire film industry value chain, successfully emerging at the forefront of the global entertainment arena.
