Investing in early to mid-stage companies that generate strategic value for Time Warner.

Investment Mandate

The Power Behind Innovative Companies

The Time Warner Investments group focuses on investment opportunities that directly enhance Time Warner's ability to meet specific strategic goals. These strategic goals include the delivery of new services, enhancement of an existing product, entry or expansion into a key strategic market, completion of a strategic partnership, and critical research and development.

Time Warner Investments works closely with management, other investors, and with the Time Warner operating companies to derive value and maximize the opportunities for mutually beneficial partnerships.

Time Warner Investments seeks to acquire minority equity stakes in private companies, and targets an investment size of up to $25MM.

Investment Criteria

Company's operations must have a clear strategic fit with an existing Time Warner business.

Company can demonstrate near-term partnership potential (for example, the delivery of a unique product/service to at least one of Time Warner's divisions).

Company is at stage of development where they have demonstrated the feasibility of their business model and/or their technology. Will invest at an earlier stage if the opportunity has a greater potential for strategic value creation.

High quality management team with a demonstrated track record of execution against operating plans.

Attractive financial return potential commensurate to the risk profile of the investment.

Time Warner Investments expects to be an active and prominent investor. Will act as lead investor in a round and will seek governance rights including board seats and observer rights as appropriate.
