Pantaflix (formerly Pantaleon Entertainment) is a VOD platform to which international film producers can upload and manage their content directly. The business also has a film production segment based in Berlin. Founded in 2009, the group has produced a string of successful films for German cinema. In December 2016 it launched a global VOD platform designed to serve the demand for local language film by expatriate and migrant communities.
While the growth of the video on demand (VoD) platform will likely take the plaudits, Pantaflix’s film production business has continued its strong run of ramping up both the quality and volume of content. Continued investment in both businesses saw net losses expand to €4.4m in H118. However, the film production business has a strong pipeline and the VoD platform is growing rapidly. Despite the premium rating, further improvements to the newly launched KPIs or the announcement of additional partnerships could drive upside.
