Investment Highlights – Acquisition of Curiosity Ink Media

The company purchased Curiosity Ink Media (CIM) in August 2021. CIM is a creator, developer, and producer of kids and family entertainment content that was created by Russell Hicks in 2018. We believe the company is poised to benefit from the increase in expected spending on content from major streaming services.

Russell Hicks has a history of success and was involved in the development of hits such as Scooby-Doo, SpongeBob Square Pants, Dora the Explorer, and Paw Patrol.

He was a driving force behind the success of Nickelodeon in the early 2000s, where he was the president of content and production from 2012–2017 and Chief Creative Officer from 1998-2012. We believe his past history of developing hit content is repeatable.

The team at CIM has a strong incentive to develop successful content due to the earn-out structure from the acquisition. Grom paid roughly $5.7M for CIM up front, but the selling party has the opportunity to earn up to $17.5M more upon achieving certain EBITDA targets from 2023-2025.

According to Ampere Research, streaming services spent more than $220B for content in 2021, representing an increase of 14% over 2020. In 2022, Ampere expects investment for content to exceed $230B, representing an increase of 4.5%

Top Draw Animation Tailwinds

With recent contract wins in 4Q21, we believe the company’s backlog is roughly $8.6M, which represents a 33% increase above the backlog stated at the beginning of FY21 and a 23% increase above the backlog stated at the beginning of FY20.

Russell Hicks was appointed to Managing Director of Top Draw Animation in August 2021. The founder of Top Draw Animation, Wayne Dearing, resided in the Philippines and retired in August 2021. The company now has direct access to Hollywood through the connections that Russell Hicks has built over the past 40 years.

According to former Nickelodeon executive, Paul Ward, who joined the company in March 2021 as President of Grom, many of Russell Hicks’ colleagues hold key decision-making roles at major companies such as NBC Universal, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon.

As a result, we believe the company’s Top Draw Animation business will win a lot of new contracts going forward.

Positive Momentum in KPIs and Revenue Trends

Grom boasts a high online usage duration versus some of its peers and continues to grow its user base. The company currently has roughly 2.5M total monthly active users, up from 876K in 2019, representing approximately 60% growth per year.

EFHutton Analyst Price Target $5/Share

“Grom was assigned a $5.00 price target using a sum of the parts analysis and a relative valuation from peers.”

EFHutton’s price target implies a return of more than 400% from the current PPS.

Recent Article- Deep Dive: Grom Social Enterprises

Our goal is that this initial introduction gets everyone started with their own research.

***Note that GROM is currently on the NASDAQ’s Reg SHO Threshold List. Failures to deliver to the clearing agency usually indicate some naked short selling within the security.

Regulation SHO is a 2005 SEC rule that governs short selling. The regulation introduced the “locate” and “close-out” requirements aimed at curtailing naked short selling.

There is a lot to cover with Grom, I will have more soon.
