Entertainment Partners has acquired its Canadian affiliates to unite their entertainment payroll and tax incentive services, the company announced.
Terms of the deal between Entertainment Partners, in Burbank, and EP Canada, in Vancouver, and Canada Film Capital, in Toronto, were not disclosed.
The transaction will have EP Canada, which handles payroll services and management, and Canada Film Capital, which coordinates film and television tax incentive programs, operate as independent providers.
Entertainment Partners Chief Executive Mark Goldstein said a stronger company will result from uniting with EP Canada and Canada Film Capital and will incorporate each other’s best practices to optimally serve their clients throughout North America.
“Our shared values of integrity, dedication to client service, and technological innovation make this combination mutually beneficial for both organizations and our industry,” Goldstein said in a prepared statement.
EP Canada’s President, Cheryl Nex and her Canadian executive team will remain in place.
Entertainment Partners also has affiliates in the United Kingdom, Puerto Rico and Asia.
