“With its compelling technology and high quality services, we believe Ease is uniquely positioned to modernize the production process for its entertainment customers,” added Doug Trussler, partner at Bison Capital. “We are very excited to partner with Mike Rose and his management team as Ease pursues its growth objectives.
Precise terms of the investment were not disclosed.
