Globally iconic leader in the provision and operation of studio space for the film and television production industries

Pinewood Group Limited (Pinewood) is an iconic independent British business recognised as a world-leader in the ownership, leasing and operation of studio and related space used primarily for film and television content production. Over its 80-year history, Pinewood has hosted some of the best known films and television shows, including 22 of the 24 James Bond films and the latest Star Wars film. The company has an international presence, with the majority of its activities occurring at two freehold properties outside central London. The locations afford access to London’s vibrant creative industries, with a long-established English speaking talent pool and “eco-system”.

Fund III acquired 100% of the shares of Pinewood, which was listed on the United Kingdom’s Alternative Investment Market exchange, and subsequently delisted the company. Pinewood’s management has identified short, medium and long-term growth initiatives. One large initiative has already been implemented, primarily comprising an expansion of large-stage studio space at the main Pinewood site.

The team will work with management to support various strategic growth initiatives, with the aim of further enhancing Pinewood’s offerings to its customers and extending its market leading position in the United Kingdom and internationally.
