The Florida-based company produces online digital content, including the Aim High series starring Twilight’s Jackson Rathbone as a student by day and secret agent by night.

The company acquired marketing and public relations firm 42West LLC last year in a US$28mln deal. The firm has signed big-name clients like Empire’s Taraji P. Henson, singer Camila Cabello and comedian Marc Maron.

“The organic growth of 42West is something we hope to highlight for many quarters and years to come.  Also, as we have noted before, we have a solid pipeline for acquisitions of companies and personnel to complement 42West in public relations and marketing for celebrities and entertainment content,” said CEO Bill O’Dowd.

Shares of the company were up more than 8% to US$3.19 in early Tuesday trading.
