Beringea invested from ProVen VCT and ProVen Growth & Income VCT. Bank financing was provided by Coutts, while LongAcre Partners acted as financial advisers to the management team. Previous investor in Eagle Rock, edel music AG, also backed the deal.

Eagle Rock produces, publishes and distributes music programming and documentaries for TV and DVD. Key catalogue properties include live performances from artists such as The Bee Gees, The Who and Janet Jackson.
