“All3Media is one of the world's great content companies, and this gives us an incredible
platform to continue to grow our expanding portfolio,” said Jeff Zucker, the CEO of RedBird
IMI. “The demand for new shows and ongoing existing series, both scripted and unscripted,
makes All3 a perfect fit for us. And we would not be doing this if not for the tremendous
confidence we have in the outstanding All3Media management team, led by Jane and Sara.”

“Acquiring All3 is an extension of our investment thesis around pure play global content
creators and owners of intellectual property,” said Gerry Cardinale, Founder and Managing
Partner of RedBird. “We look forward to partnering with All3’s management team to
continue accelerating their growth in Europe and the U.S. and capitalizing on RedBird’s
ecosystem in support of that goal.”

team is an exciting next step for us as we continue to build All3Media. Our strategy remains
to work with the world’s best talent, developing and producing high quality, popular
programmes and RedBird IMI’s support and investment will be key in helping us deliver this.
I am very proud of all that we have built over the past few years, and I am looking forward
to working with the RedBird IMI team as we take this important next step.”

“All3Media has gone from strength to strength during our period of joint ownership with
WBD, both financially and creatively,” Andrea Salvato, Chief Development Officer, Liberty

Global, said. “We look forward to seeing the company continue to prosper, led by Jane and
the team, as part of RedBird IMI. The sale continues our strategy of recycling capital in our
ventures portfolio.”

“We are incredibly proud of what All3Media, Warner Bros. Discovery and Liberty Global
have built together over the past decade, and given RedBird IMI’s strong commitment to
creative excellence, we are confident they are best suited to shepherd this world-class
production studio into its next phase and can’t wait to see all that’s ahead,” said Bruce
