DNA Studios Enters New Investment Partnership With GlenMartin to Expand Sports, Media Productions
GlenMartin’s new partnership with DNA Studios Plus seeks to advance the development of original content creation. The asset purchase has been structured with the goal of establishing a new operational headquarters in Dallas, Texas, with continued production operational studios located in Humble, Texas.
GlenMartin, a private equity firm focused on infrastructure investments, envisions this partnership as an opportunity to expand live broadcast and streaming media services. As “Live Content is King”, this industry sector has experienced large advancements in media production technology. The partnership will continue to grow DNA Studios Plus capabilities with innovative technology, additional capital purchases and new market segments. GlenMartin’s strong background in telecom and energy infrastructure investments complements the partnership and offers the opportunity for additional synergistic acquisitions.
“Our goal is to offer the highest quality productions with utmost reliability,” according to Sam Schrade CEO of DNA Studios Plus. “The landscape for televised sports and streaming broadcasts is changing rapidly. Those who can adapt will succeed. Innovation is at the core of our company, and we are excited to announce the expansion of the DNA Studios Plus team, with Dallas being a phenomenal market to expand into and operate from.”
Schrade brings 35 years of industry experience in technical live productions and business operations. Recent accolades include numerous national TV broadcast awards and a recent designation as an Inc. 5000 fastest growing company in America for 2023.
Chris Martin, Chairman of GlenMartin, says, “This new partnership will tap into our long history of building and financing great enterprises. There is so much to do within this industry to build solid business units that service both national and international sports and media events. Advanced telecom solutions are an integral element to any quality live sports production. A live production does not get produced reliably without multiple modes of interconnection. Our capacity to remotely produce events is highly dependent on great connectivity. We pride ourselves in the legacy we’ve built and will continue to invest with owners who share in our values.” Martin adds, “GlenMartin continues to explore synergistic acquisitions that grow this platform investment strategy. Our investment in DNA Studios Plus endeavors to align with GlenMartin’s commitment to making a positive impact on communities. Our team believes that sports productions are a way to get communities involved and working together in a positive way.”
