Bon voyage, Charlie Brown.
A Canadian company that owns the majority of the beloved Peanuts brand is selling nearly half its stake to Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) for $185 million.
American fans have nothing to fear: Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and crew will not change, according to a spokesman for DHX Media of Halifax.
“The Peanuts characters, and the brand representation that Americans and other fans around the world love, will remain essentially the same,” DHX Media spokesman Shaun Smith told CNNMoney. “The Snoopy that Americans love is the same Snoopy that the Japanese love, and Canadians, for that matter.”
He said that Peanuts, and “Snoopy in particular,” is already “enormously popular in Japan.” Sony (SNE) Music Entertainment (Japan) has already licensed the brand since 2010, according to DHX.
DHX Media (DHXM) signed the deal on Sunday to sell 49% of its 80% stake in the Peanuts brand. DHX still keeps the controlling share of 41%, in Peanuts, while Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) will own 39%.
