Genius Group Acquires Revealed Films Inc. to Deliver Instructional Content for Budding Entrepreneurs
Edtech Organization Taps Utah-based Production Company to Create Educational Entrepreneur-Focused Film Series
SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Genius Group Limited (NYSE American: GNS) (“Genius Group” or the “Company”), a leading entrepreneur Edtech and education group, today announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Revealed Films Inc., a media production company that specializes in multi-part documentaries. The transaction value is $10m with earnout and claw back payments in 2023, 2024 and 2025 that are contingent on meeting certain revenue and profitability criteria. The acquisition closed on October 4, 2022 and will enable Genius Group to enhance and supplement its always-evolving curriculum with high-quality entrepreneurial education videos.
“Working with Revealed Films will allow Genius Group to produce outstanding new educational videos catered to our entrepreneurial programs,” said Roger James Hamilton, CEO and founder of Genius Group. “We are very impressed with their catalog of films and look forward to collaborating with them on new content that supports our lifelong learning curriculum.”
Revealed Films Inc. was founded in 2017 by award-winning filmmaker and television producer Jeff Hays and wellness and business expert Patrick Gentempo. The company launches three to four docu-series per year covering topics such as wealth building, health and nutrition, medical issues, religion, and political matters. Revealed Films will continue to operate as a separate entity.
"We live in a world where synergy and collaboration create much more value for humankind than individual entities working on their own,” said Jeff Hays and Patrick Gentempo, co-founders of Revealed Films Inc. “Revealed Films is immensely excited to work with Genius Group and Roger Hamilton because it will ignite new possibilities for what we can all achieve together. Our combined vision and resources for what we will put into the world and how we believe we will massively expand our audience, which is already in the millions, are inspiring us to grow and have impact like never before."
This is the latest in a recent spate of acquisitions undertaken by Genius Group. Since going public in April, the company has expanded its student base through acquisitions of global education organizations including E-Squared Education Enterprises in South Africa, Education Angels in New Zealand, Property Investors Network in the United Kingdom, and University of Antelope Valley in California. By acquiring these companies, Genius Group is continuing its strategy to disrupt the education sector and build a new curriculum centered around entrepreneurship and lifelong learning.
