“We are thrilled to have an aggressive Canadian distributor that complements our entrepreneurial spirit,” Shout! Factory founders Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos said in a joint statement. “Phase 4 is an experienced and motivated team that can put concentrated focus on our content and work collaboratively with us to maximize our business in traditional and non-traditional channels.”

Factory has an amazing track record of securing unique and highly marketable content, and we are excited to begin working together. Our teams are aligned and we are intent on growing both their physical and on-demand business in the Canadian market.”
