posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Memory-Tech Holdings fully acquired Pony Canyon subsidiary Pony Canyon Enterprise on March 20 after purchasing 100% of its capital stock. Memory-Tech Holdings did not disclose the cost of the acquisition.
Pony Canyon Enterprise is a video editing, post-production, and DVD and Blu-ray Disc authoring company, and has also been involved with sound production for anime. The company also provides subtitles and dubbing for video, and also prepares and encodes videos for streaming.
Memory-Tech Holdings is the parent company of the Graphinica (Expelled from Paradise, Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas, Jūni Taisen) CG animation studio, which it formed in 2009 after acquiring Gonzo's digital video division through its Q-Tec subsidiary.
In December, Memory-Tech acquired AOI TYO Holdings' TYO Animations and REAL-T subsidiary companies, with REAL-T becoming a subsidiary of Memory-Tech, and TYO Animations becoming a subsidiary of Graphinica. Memory-Tech also changed TYO Animations' name to Yumeta Company, reviving an old name that was retired in 2009 when the original Yumeta Company merged with Hal Film Maker to form TYO Animations.
