Kajama Group Announces Independent Production and Debt Financing Services

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 19, 2010) - Kajama Group today announced its launch, offering independent production and financial advisory services. The company will provide production services and alternative debt financing solutions across industries, with a focus on the media and entertainment sector.

Kajama Group, LLC was recently founded by entertainment industry veterans Christopher May, Katrina Nahikian, and Jack Sojka after a decade of collaborating as executive producers and financiers on various projects. Chris has been at the forefront of new media, producing content for broadband and mobile in association with Procter & Gamble brands. Katrina was VP of Development under a deal at Fox Television Studios. Her entertainment career began at Bette Midler's All-Girl Productions and segued to Lionsgate Television and Oxygen Media. Jack is a veteran writer, producer, and director who has worked on several projects for The History Channel, Lionsgate Entertainment, The Harbinger Group, and RGH/Lions Share. Additionally Jack worked on the producing team for the David Lynch and Academy Award nominated Werner Herzog film "My Son My Son What Have Ye Done."

"Equity players are being very careful about their investment dollars and the overall banking industry is now just starting to show signs of recovery. Within the entertainment industry alone, actively lending banks decreased by 75% during the recession. So there is still quite a large gap for filmmakers, P&A funds, finishing funds, and many others in the industry looking for new financing options," says Jack Sojka, Managing Partner, Kajama Group. "Our goal is to provide alternative debt financing options that hopefully fill in some of these gaps."

Kajama Group will facilitate these financing options once committed collateral is provided such as a letter of credit, CDs, future tax credits or a committed distribution guarantee among others. For details, please contact Kajama Group at info@kajamagroup.com.
