WATCH: Live Company continues aggressive European expansion with Geneva deal

LVCG said that while taking responsibility for the show would result in a greater outlay, it expected to benefit from increased revenue by receiving all ticket and commercial sales, while previously it had only received a content and licence fee.

At the new show, the company said it would be showcasing its new BRICKLIVE Force and BRICKLIVE Outerspace touring assets while also introducing a new format of half-day sessions.

The NEC show will be the first one held in Birmingham since LVCG acquired Lego-brick sculpture company Bright Bricks Limited for £8.5mln in October.

The group added that it had appointed Sarah Whittaker, who has managed previously BRICKLIVE events at the NEC, on board as chief marketing officer from the start of May.

Whittaker would be responsible for managing the new BRICKLIVE NEC show as well as other BRICKLIVE events in the UK and Europe.

David Ciclitira, Live Company’s executive chairman, said the company was “ideally placed” to manage the NEC show following the Bright Bricks acquisition, adding that Whittaker would bring “a substantial amount of event management experience” to the company.

Second Monaco Christmas show

In a separate announcement, the company said it had reached an agreement with the Grimaldi Forum (GFM), a conference centre in Monaco, to host a BRICKLIVE Christmas show in the principality.

The show, which will run from 21 December 2019 to 5 January 2020, is the company’s second BRICKLIVE Christmas show held in Monaco and will involve GFM staging and promoting the show with content on loan from BRICKLIVE.

"After the huge success of the BRICKLIVE Christmas Show in 2018, where over 11,000 people visited the event, we are thrilled that the Christmas Show will be returning to the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco in 2019”, Ciclitira said.

BRICKLIVE is a series of shows featuring sculptures constructed out of Lego-bricks and areas where attendees can build their own sculptures.

Shares were up 3.5% at 58.5p.

These range from large BRICKLIVE events that attract hundreds, to smaller cafes that parents and children can enjoy while taking a break from shopping.

Since listing on AIM in December 2017, the company has been pursuing an aggressive strategy of expansion and brand building that has paid off for the share price.

What it owns:

Brick Live Group holds BRICKLIVE, an interactive event that allows people to learn, build and play with LEGO bricks.

Parallel Live is a joint venture with Three Six Zero to hold BRICKLIVE events in the US and Canada.  The joint venture has agreed terms with Live Nation Entertainment to launch events this year. The first was held in Dallas in January.

Bright Bricks, acquired by Live Company last October, is a professional LEGO brick building firm. It makes custom LEGO brick and toy brick creations for clients across the globe including Rolls-Royce, Google, BT, Land Rover, Warner Brothers, LEGO, General Electric, The National Gallery, Maersk and Lufthansa.

Infection points: Live Company in February announced a deal with AWC AG, a leading German exhibition promoter, to provide three BRICKLIVE shows in the country. AWC will organise three BRICKLIVE shows, including two at Odysseum in Cologne and one at Explorado in Duisburg, to take place over the next 12 months. An equity fundraising with certain existing investors to raise around £2.2mln will support the expansion of the BRICKLIVE Zoo shows following significant interest in the programme. Revenues for 2018 were broadly in line with expectations with strong order book and pipeline of opportunities from the start of 2019. The first BRICKLIVE show in the US at the Ford Centre in Fisco Texas was well received by visitors. BRICKLIVE events will be held in about 60 locations across the world this year including in the UK, China, Singapore and Malaysia. Last November the group landed a US$1.3mln lease agreement with a South Korean firm for its Mythical Beasts touring assets that will run until December 2021. The deal involves the lease of 50 models created and built by Bright Bricks. Blue Sky:

Live Company said there is a strong pipeline in place for future sales as it invests in content and producing five new BRICKLIVE Zoo touring assets over the next 14 months. The group expects the assets to generate £2mln in revenue and £1.6mln in gross profit in 2019.

The company is well-funded to support its planned expansion of BRICKLIVE Zoo following its £2.2mln share placing and subscription. 

“With the success of our Zoo touring assets at Marwell Zoo and Twycross Zoo in the UK, we have seen significant levels of interest from other zoos across the UK, Europe and the United States,” said chairman David Ciclitira.

“This funding will therefore allow the group to take advantage of these exciting opportunities and I'm personally delighted to be investing in the company at this time."

Under the agreement, AWC will organise three BRICKLIVE shows, including two at Odysseum in Cologne and one at Explorado in Duisburg, to take place over the next 12 months.

READ: Live Company holds first US BRICKLIVE show in Dallas

The Cologne shows consist of a BRICKLIVE interactive show and a Brickosauras touring show while Duisburg would host a BRICKLIVE Force touring show.

AWC will become the firm’s exclusive partner in Germany, subject to organising at least three BRICKLIVE shows per year, while also becoming Live Company’s non-exclusive partner for other European shows excluding the UK and Ireland and working with the group to bring its BRICKLIVE Zoo programme to Germany.

The two would also collaborate to develop concepts for future BRICKLIVE shows, including a Christmas show exclusively in Germany and potentially elsewhere in Europe, while AWC would provide logistical support such as model warehousing to allow greater access to central Europe.

The agreement itself is for four years with a one-year break clause, under which AWC will pay Live Company a licence fee for each BRICKLIVE show it organises while receiving a commission for each BRICKLIVE Zoo show delivered in Germany and further payments for additional services.

The partnership follows closely behind Live Company's first foray into the US market, with its first BRICKLIVE show in the country held in January.

David Ciclitira, executive chairman of Live Company, said: “I am delighted to have AWC, a leading player in the exhibition sector, as our partner to deliver BRICKLIVE shows in Germany and potentially across Europe.”

Placing to fund BRICKLIVE Zoo expansion

In a separate release, Live Company announced an equity fundraising with certain existing investors to raise around £2.2mln.

The fundraise comprised the conditional placing of around 2.1mln new shares to raise £1.36mln and a conditional subscription of 1.3mln shares to raise £840,000, both at a placing price of 65p per share, a 4.8% premium to its last close price of 62p.

The company also said it would issue 1.25 warrants for every share in the fundraising which would provide the holder with the right to one new share on its exercise, exercisable for a two year period after the admission of the placing shares on 25 February at a price of 80p.

The money would be used to finance the expansion of the BRICKLIVE Zoo programme due to what the firm said was “significant interest” with seven shows already scheduled for 2019.

Revenues for 2018 were also “broadly in line” with expectations, the group said, with a “strong order book and pipeline of opportunities” from the start of 2019.

Shares were up 4.8% at 65p.

READ: Live Company acquires Bright Bricks

Bright Bricks, the world’s largest independent LEGO brick building company, has contracted with eight additional zoos and parks, including a major zoo in Europe and the USA.

The plan is to form more partnerships with other venues around the world, while Live said it was in talks to take a new show back to Marwell Zoo, where it all began last year.

The Bright Bricks shows will be incorporated into the group’s BRICKLIVE TOURING division. That arm of the company also includes the BRICKLIVE Animal Paradise shows, which recently kicked off a three-year tour of China.

“We are pleased to be confirming the launch of our touring concept in zoos and parks in the US and Europe, which was one of our strategies for the recent acquisition of Bright Bricks,” said executive chairman David Ciclitira.

“Combining the Great Brick Safari package with the success of BRICKLIVE ANIMAL PARADISE enables BRICKLIVE TOURING to strengthen and in turn ensure the capacity for an additional range of concepts, strengthening the group as a global children's entertainment and education brand.”
