Geneva Media Holdings, LLC Protects Production Costs and Insures Investors Against Loss of Capital
GENEVA MEDIA offers proprietary structures for the protection of media and entertainment investments. Break-even points are guaranteed by eliminating slate financing arrangements from possible loss on feature films, television series and PC games.
U.S. film tax credits (IL, CA, FL, LA, NM, GA, NM, CT CA, etc.), and provincial Canadian incentives (Nova Scotia, Ontario, etc.) have helped reduce risk for investors, but only one company offers a proprietary business structure which provides principal protection to film studios and their private or institutional investors. Otherwise risky endeavors like media and film finance can leave investors without a penny of collateral to pay back bank loans or their fund's investors.
Rather than issuing "performance protection", "residual value" or "default risk" insurance on media and film financing arrangements, Geneva has designed an entirely new structure for risk mitigation. It does not rely on P&C policies, which often do not collect enough premium to properly protect investors. Mr. Dyer's CAIC structure has high cash values which can provide the liquidity needed to protect investor assets using liquid, cash reserves that exceed the original film or television negative costs expenditures by 110% to 125%.
Unlike property and casualty insurance, Mr. Dyer's CAIC structure has been used for almost 50 years, and has been installed since the mid-1960's in almost every Fortune 500 company in America. Geneva Media Holdings, LLC uses A+ rated L&H carriers with outstanding track records. No legal reserve, North American L&H insurance carrier has ever paid back less than their contractual guarantees.
Mr. Dyer's family has installed similar media risk management plans for key executives (Tribune Co., WGN, Los Angeles Times, Bell-Philip Productions, The Young & The Restless, etc.), since 1978. Geneva Media Holdings, LLC continues this tradition, by giving banks, hedge funds and private equity investors a double level of security. In so doing, Geneva Media has devised a way to insure that banks and equity funds avoid any loss when investing in a slate of film or television projects.
Dyer brings with him a number of past Crain’s Top 40 Under 40 business minds, along with many of Hollywood's top studio and network professionals, in order to roll out the new principal protected media funding structure to major banks like Citi, J.P. Morgan, Comerica, OneWest, Harris Trust and others during 2013.
Mr. Dyer has vowed to bring even more film productions to Illinois, Georgia, New Mexico, Florida, Connecticut and California during the next 5 years. Mr. Dyer was previously with Bank Of Montreal, Harris Bank and Trust, Transamerica and numerous other broker/dealers during his 24 year career as a top financial and risk management adviser. His company caters to Forbes 400 families and Fortune 500 corporations.
