Crescent Enterprises Acquires an Equity Stake in Teshkeel Media Group

Business Wealth

Crescent Enterprises, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Crescent Group of companies in the UAE, announced the acquisition of an equity stake in the Teshkeel Media Group (TMG), a Kuwait-based media and entertainment company that develops and delivers content for children and young adults. The acquisition is as part of a consortium of investors that includes Abraaj Capital’s small and mid-cap investment platform, which invested in TMG in 2011.

The co-investment from Crescent Enterprises enables TMG to continue with its planned production for Season 2 of the animated TV series (a critical milestone which enhances THE 99’s attractiveness to major broadcasters and product licensing companies), to expand its animation and licensing footprint into new geographies and to execute a value-creation strategy within the business. All of these initiatives will contribute to TMG’s tremendous growth potential in the Middle East and beyond.

TMG is a leading Middle East-based developer of children’s entertainment products for a worldwide market. Its acclaimed comic superhero series, THE 99, is based on Middle Eastern culture and history and uses a dynamic and exciting medium to promote ethical and cultural values around the world.

In 2010, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, praised the series as “one of the most innovative ways” to spread the lessons of peace and tolerance to the children of the world. THE 99 phenomenon has featured heavily in international media, including recognition by Forbes Magazine, one of the world’s most influential publications.

Commenting on the transaction, Badr Jafar, Managing Director of the Crescent Group and CEO of Crescent Enterprises, said: “We see Teshkeel as being one of the leading companies in the sphere of social development throughout the region and beyond. The confluence of a profound social message with a series of dynamic, animated characters makes this an ideal investment for Crescent Enterprises and what we stand for. We are pleased to back the wonderful story that Teshkeel has created and look forward to sharing in the continued success of the company.”

Naif Al-Mutawa, CEO of Teshkeel Media Group, has led the company through a path of sustained organic growth since 2004. Discussing the investment, Dr. Al-Mutawa said: “The investment from Crescent Enterprises comes on the heels of our successful launch on MBC and Yahoo! Maktoob throughout the Middle East. Not long ago, MBC and Yahoo! Maktoob were start-ups in a vast ocean of opportunity and danger. Today, MBC is the largest broadcaster in the Arab world and Yahoo! Maktoob is the largest Arab online portal. Each is a great success story of Middle East media. The fact that MBC and Yahoo! Maktoob have chosen to work together to raise THE 99 to their own lofty heights speaks volumes, as does our gratitude for their confidence and that of our new investors, Crescent Enterprises.”

After several years of developing original content for THE 99 brand, TMG is now positioned to achieve transformational growth through the launch of its animated television series in 2012. The series is expected to be aired initially across the Middle East (including Turkey) and Asia. TMG will capitalize on strategic relationships with its UK-based production partner, Endemol, and leading broadcasters in the United States and throughout the world for a successful launch of THE 99.

    Apparently,

    isn’t enough government control over private enterprise.

    Do you support the government bailout of urban newspapers which supported the replacement of their literate customers with 40 – 50 million illegal aliens and the fact that the remaining public does not trust and considers what is published biased on a 2 to 1 ratio?

  2. Initially the restaurant sold only chicken, but french fries and jalapeños were later added in 1955.[3] The company had four restaurants when George W. Church died in 1956. Following Church’s death, his son George W. Church, Jr., took control of the company. By 1962, the family had expanded the company to eight restaurants. Among the later distributors of the chain in Texas was B.P. Newman of Laredo. Church’s Chicken is especially popular among African Americans.
    Rapid growth followed, and Church’s became the second-largest chicken restaurant chain in 1989, when it merged with Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits. The brands had their supply lines consolidated but were still marketed as separate chains. Hala Moddelmog was appointed as president of Church’s Chicken in 1996, making her the first female president of a fast-food restaurant chain.

    Church’s was owned by AFC Enterprises, along with Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits and Cinnabon through the end of 2004, when it was sold to Arcapita (formerly Crescent Capital Investments). Because Arcapita is an Islamic venture capital firm, pork products were removed from the menu after the sale (pork not being halal) in 2005. So, if we eat at a Church’s chicken, is the profit being funneled to a terrorist organization?

  3. im writing a report on Nevada and need to know if this is good. It will say look here for pics but there on a cologe so these are just words…

    Nevada

    The state of Nevada was claimed as the 36th state on October 31, 1864.Thats when it became an official state. Nevada’s nicknames are Sagebrush State, Battle Born State, and the most known nickname is the Silver State. The meaning of the name of our state “Nevada” is snow-capped in Spanish. Here are some facts about Nevada; the population is about 1,998,257 people. It’s the 35th largest state (2000 census). Nevada’s Capital is Carson City. The state bird is the Mountain Bluebird and the state animal is the Desert Bighorn. The state flower is Sagebrush and the state tree is Single-leaf Pinon and the Bristlecone Pine. Our state precious gemstone is the Virgin Valley Black Fire Opal. The state song is Home Means Nevada.

    Home means Nevada, Home means the hills. Home means the sage and the pine. Out by the Truckee’s silvery rills. Out where the sun always shines. There is the land that I love the best, fairer than all I can see. Right in the heart of the golden West, Home means Nevada to me.

    Our state colors or silver and blue. And the state flag has a green reef looking type of thing on it with yellow flowers. Its says Nevada under a white star. Above the white star there is a scroll saying battle born. The background color of the flag is navy blue.
    Our states motto is “all for our country.”

    Here is a picture of what our state looks like,
    Here is a picture of Carson city, our capital.

    Nevada is the home of the wild mustangs, which is one of my favorite things about the state.

    Nevada is bordered by Utah,Arazona,California,Oregon, and Idaho.

    Here is a timeline of dates that are important to
    Nevada.

    • 1821 Mexico claimed the area after a successful revolt against Spain.
    • 1840’s Americans on the way to California traveled through the region.
    • 1848 Nevada was part of the area ceded by Mexico to the United States.
    • 1849 The first non-Indian settlement was made at Mormon Station (Genoa).
    • 1850 When Utah Territory was organized, almost all of present-day Nevada was included except the southern tip, which was then part of the New Mexico Territory.
    • 1859 The Comstock Lode of gold and silver was discovered at Virginia City, and many miners began coming from California.
    • 1861 Congress created Nevada Territory. In 1862 the territory was enlarged by shifting the eastern boundary.
    • 1863 Nevada became a state. In 1866 and 1867 more eastern land was gained from Utah Territory and the southern tip was acquired from Arizona Territory.
    • 1880 – 1890 As the Comstock Lode declined, the state’s population fell from 62,000 to 47,000.
    • 1900 The discovery of silver at Tonopah, soon followed by gold strikes at Goldfield and the discovery of copper at Ely, led to a new mining boom that lasted until after World War I.

    Those are some very important history dates of Nevada.

    Nevada has a lot of beautiful scenery look here.
    One thing you guys might know about Nevada, is Sarah Winnemucca. This is what the wikipedia says about her in the first paragraph, Sarah Winnemucca (born Thocmentony, Paiute: Shell Flower )which is now western Nevada… (ca. 1841 – October 17, 1891) was notable for being the first Native American woman known to secure a copyright and to publish in the English language. She was also known by her married name, Sarah Winnemucca Hopkins, under which she was published. Her book, Life Among the Paiutes: Their Wrongs and Claims, is an autobiographical account of her people during their first forty years of contact with explorers and settlers.
    Sarah was a person of two worlds. At the time of her birth her people had only very limited contact with Euro-Americans; however she spent much of her adult life in white society. Like many people of two worlds, she may be judged harshly in both contexts. Many Paiutes view her as a collaborator who helped the U.S. Army kill her people. Modern historians view her book as an important primary source, but one that is deliberately misleading in many instances. Despite this, Sarah has received much positive attention recently for her activism. She was inducted into the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame in 1993, and in 2005 a statue of her was added to the National Statuary Hall Collection in the U.S. Capitol.
    That says a lot about her. Sarah Winnemucca is very well known for bringing peace between Americans and Indians. Nevada is well known for her. Because she was born in what is now western Nevada. She is now in the Nevada hall of fame.

    Nevada is apart of the Great Basin desert. You can see many miles of beautiful mountains, sagebrush, animals, and so much more!!! Nevada has one of the lowest average rainfalls out of the fifty states: nine inches. You may have heard the poem Mountains as Islands which says the following,

    Mountains as Islands
    Each range here is like a warship standing on its own, and the Great Basin is an ocean of loose sediment with these mountain ranges standing in it as if they were members of a fleet without precedent, assembled at Guam to assault Japan. Some of the ranges are forty miles long, others a hundred, a hundred and fifty. They point generally north. The basins that separate them-ten and fifteen miles wide-will run on for fifty, a hundred, two hundred and fifty miles with lone, daisy-petalled windmills standing over sage and wild rye. …Discounting the cry of the occasional bird, the wailing of a pack of coyotes, silence-a great spatial silence- is pure in the Basin and Range. It is a soundless immensity with mountains in it.
    -John McPhee
    Basin and Range, 1980
    this is a 4th grade papeer just so you know…
    just read my own paper and fell asleep geese this paper sucks!

    Nevada has a lot of beautiful scenery look here.
    One thing you guys might know about Nevada, is Sarah Winnemucca. This is what the wikipedia says about her in the first paragraph, Sarah Winnemucca (born Thocmentony, Paiute: Shell Flower )which is now western Nevada… (ca. 1841 – October 17, 1891) was notable for being the first Native American woman known to secure a copyright and to publish in the English language. She was also known by her married name, Sarah Winnemucca Hopkins, under which she was published. Her book, Life Among the Paiutes: Their Wrongs and Claims, is an autobiographical account of her people during their first forty years of contact with explorers and settlers.
    Sarah was a person of two worlds. At the time of her birth her people had only very limited contact with Euro-Americans; however she spent much of her adult life in white society. Like many people of two worlds, she may be judged harshly in both contexts. Many Paiutes view her as a collaborator who helped the U.S. Army kill her people. Modern historians view her book as an important primary source, but one that is deliberately misleading in many instances. Despite this, Sarah has received much positive attention recently for her activism. She was inducted into the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame in 1993, and in 2005 a statue of her was added to the National Statuary Hall Collection in the U.S. Capitol.
    That says a lot about her. Sarah Winnemucca is very well known for bringing peace between Americans and Indians. Nevada is well known for her. Because she was born in what is now western Nevada. She is now in the Nevada hall of fame.

    Nevada is apart of the Great Basin desert. You can see many miles of beautiful mountains, sagebrush, animals, and so much more!!! Nevada has one of the lowest average rainfalls out of the fifty states: nine inches. You may have heard the poem Mountains as Islands which says the following,

    Mountains as Islands
    Each range here is like a warship standing on its own, and the Great Basin is an ocean of loose sediment with these mountain ranges standing in it as if they were members of a fleet without precedent, assembled at Guam to assault Japan. Some of the ranges are forty miles long, others a hundred, a hundred and fifty. They point generally north. The basins that separate them-ten and fifteen miles wide-will run on for fifty, a hundred, two hundred and fifty miles with lone, daisy-petalled windmills standing over sage and wild rye. …Discounting the cry of the occasional bird, the wailing of a pack of coyotes, silence-a great spatial silence- is pure in the Basin and Range. It is a soundless immensity with mountains in it.
    -John McPhee
    Basin and Range, 1980
    this is a 4th grade papeer just so you know…

  6. im writing a report on Nevada and need to know if this is good. It will say look here for pics but there on a cologe so these are just words…

    Nevada

    The state of Nevada was claimed as the 36th state on October 31, 1864.Thats when it became an official state. Nevada’s nicknames are Sagebrush State, Battle Born State, and the most known nickname is the Silver State. The meaning of the name of our state “Nevada” is snow-capped in Spanish. Here are some facts about Nevada; the population is about 1,998,257 people. It’s the 35th largest state (2000 census). Nevada’s Capital is Carson City. The state bird is the Mountain Bluebird and the state animal is the Desert Bighorn. The state flower is Sagebrush and the state tree is Single-leaf Pinon and the Bristlecone Pine. Our state precious gemstone is the Virgin Valley Black Fire Opal. The state song is Home Means Nevada.

    Home means Nevada, Home means the hills. Home means the sage and the pine. Out by the Truckee’s silvery rills. Out where the sun always shines. There is the land that I love the best, fairer than all I can see. Right in the heart of the golden West, Home means Nevada to me.

    Our state colors or silver and blue. And the state flag has a green reef looking type of thing on it with yellow flowers. Its says Nevada under a white star. Above the white star there is a scroll saying battle born. The background color of the flag is navy blue.
    Our states motto is “all for our country.”

    Here is a picture of what our state looks like,
    Here is a picture of Carson city, our capital.

    Nevada is the home of the wild mustangs, which is one of my favorite things about the state.

    Nevada is bordered by Utah,Arazona,California,Oregon, and Idaho.

    Here is a timeline of dates that are important to
    Nevada.

    • 1821 Mexico claimed the area after a successful revolt against Spain.
    • 1840’s Americans on the way to California traveled through the region.
    • 1848 Nevada was part of the area ceded by Mexico to the United States.
    • 1849 The first non-Indian settlement was made at Mormon Station (Genoa).
    • 1850 When Utah Territory was organized, almost all of present-day Nevada was included except the southern tip, which was then part of the New Mexico Territory.
    • 1859 The Comstock Lode of gold and silver was discovered at Virginia City, and many miners began coming from California.
    • 1861 Congress created Nevada Territory. In 1862 the territory was enlarged by shifting the eastern boundary.
    • 1863 Nevada became a state. In 1866 and 1867 more eastern land was gained from Utah Territory and the southern tip was acquired from Arizona Territory.
    • 1880 – 1890 As the Comstock Lode declined, the state’s population fell from 62,000 to 47,000.
    • 1900 The discovery of silver at Tonopah, soon followed by gold strikes at Goldfield and the discovery of copper at Ely, led to a new mining boom that lasted until after World War I.

    Those are some very important history dates of Nevada.
