The recent spread of video-on-demand (VOD) services has drawn greater attention worldwide on streaming high-quality dramatic content. Given this background, Babel Label seeks to establish an intellectual property (IP) business through video productions, namely film and TV shows. CyberAgent, meanwhile, has global aims for developing a wide-ranging entertainment business on the internet blending technology with creativity. Babel Label agreed to join the CyberAgent Group's management because both companies share a common goal of releasing high-quality Japanese video content with global appeal. Babel Label aspires to do more in producing TV shows for a wide range of platforms, along with films, and to export video content worldwide.
This deal will have minimal impact on the consolidated results for the reporting period ending September 2022.
