Bold Films Extends $50 Million Finance Pact with Comerica Bank

[pr] Three Year Agreement Will Fund Future Film and TV Slate

Los Angeles, Calif., Oct. 24, 2017 – Bold Films renews and increases its revolving line of credit with Comerica Bank, a $50 million dollar debt facility that extends for three years. The deal provides financing for the independent studio to produce four to six films a year and ramp up their TV slate. Bold’s continued success includes “Stronger” (Jake Gyllenhaal) based on the 2013 Boston bombing, which premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival to strong reviews, and released theatrically last month through LGF/Roadside Attractions.

Bold Films CFO Rob Mitchell led the credit facility deal for the company. Bold was repped by Legal Counsel Miles Mogulescu. Adam Korn handled the deal on behalf of Comerica.

“We are thrilled to continue our valued partnership with Comerica,” said Bold Films CFO Rob Mitchell. “The facility extension and expansion allows Bold to efficiently finance its production slate as we shift to produce more big budget films.”

“Bold’s prestige brand and pipeline of films along with Comerica Bank’s knowledge of film finance makes for a great partnership. We’ve had the privilege of serving as trusted advisors to Bold for more than four years and look forward to helping the company continue to grow their film and TV business,” said Adam Korn, Senior Vice President/Alternate Group Manager for Comerica.

Bold Films first entered their first deal with Comerica in 2013.

“If there are theories about me, I’d rather not know. Astrophysics – now that’s fascinating. String theory, worm holes, the expanding universe, the Big Bang versus the Big Bounce – those are the kind of theories that make you feel like living and understanding the mystery of the world. Film theory is just a pain in the ass.”

“I had a knockoff Michael Kors bag that said MLK instead of MK. Jada told me that I shouldn’t have knockoff stuff. I told her that my philosophy is, Whatever the bag costs, I should be able to keep that amount of cash in the bag. If it’s a $300 purse, I have to put $300 in cash in that purse. I do not want a bag that is more expensive than the cash I have to put in it. Things are going good for me now, so I am graduating to your Fendis and your Guccis. But I better have the cash equivalent, or I’m not buying the purse. And if things start to go wrong, I’m going right back to my knockoffs. When you’re somebody like me, who’s been homeless, clothes are not that important. Clothes are not a roof over my head, food in my ­stomach, my family’s health—that’s what money is for. But fashion helps get more money. So, we ride.”
