Hollywood Entertainment

Business Description

Hollywood Entertainment owned and operated a chain of video retail superstores in the United States, growing to become the second largest video retailer behind Blockbuster Entertainment.


The Company decided that a public offering would not only bring in needed capital for expansion, but would also enhance its standing with landlords when bidding on new locations for its stores and help to build a strong national brand.


A principal of Carter Morse & Mathias acted as lead underwriter on Hollywood Entertainment’s IPO.
