Company plans to expand

BERLIN — Advanced Medien AG has become the latest in an increasing number of German entertainment companies to go public.

Advanced Medien was established in 1980 and controls more than 1,000 film licenses. Execs at the Oberhaching-based company said they are expecting revenues of DM58.5 million ($30 million) this year, an increase of 270% over 1998.
