The Regency Media Group is a privately owned Australian company and has been manufacturing media for the Home Entertainment Industry since the mid 1950’s. Under a single management structure the company has grown to become Australasia’s most experienced, locally owned electronic media manufacturing business.
Over 50 years, Regency has expanded to become a diversified group comprising digital media manufacturing and distribution.
Regency also has a 74% interest in an Indian joint venture with Saregama India Ltd (“Saregama”) to produce CDs/VCDs/DVDs in that market. Saregama is the oldest music company in India with its origins dating back to the late 1800’s. It has interests in Bollywood movies and music content.
In August 2010, Regency acquired Shock Entertainment (“Shock”), one of the largest independent distributors of film, TV and music content in Australia. In 2012 Shock DVD changed name to Regency Home Entertainment and has licensing and distribution deals with partners such as WWE, CBS, E! Entertainment and Timelife. The company also launched Regency Film Distribution in June 2012.
Shock Records represents prestigious labels such as Cooking Vinyl, Vagrant and Eagle Vision. As part of the acquisition Regency now has access to a large catalogue in Australia as well as the infrastructure and a specialist team with skills in content acquisition and management. The acquisition of Shock represents the first pillar of the Company’s committed strategy to be a vertically integrated media company.
