The report points out that Unusual is now trying its hand in concert promotion and production, as it has less reliance on third-parties and might even be more competitive in terms of pricing its services.

The report notes that from a strategic point of view, the acquisition of Unusual equips mm2 with synergistics business activities, a more diversified revenue stream, and stronger network in Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Further, SGX has approved the total placement of 6.35m shares to Hesheng Media, Apex Capital, and Maxi-Harvest Group for a total consideration of $5m. The report notes that the proceeds and a chunk of the existing cash balance will provide the necessary cash to fund the initial signing fee.
