Bona Film Group

O’Melveny represented Bona, a publicly listed, Chinese motion picture distribution company, in its US$235 million investment in a slate of Hollywood tentpole movies from 20th Century Fox. The transaction had an extraordinarily tight timeline as it needed to close and fund before the theatrical release of the first motion picture involved in the slate, “The Martian.” To document and execute the very complicated transaction, O’Melveny formed two separate teams working in parallel, one to handle the investment agreement and the other to handle the credit agreement.
