Independent Feature Film Project
The Boys From Minnesota was a $10 million film project developed by a large team starting in 1992. The project successfully developed and sold merchandise by direct mail and in retail locations, produced and distributed a music CD soundtrack that was aired on radio stations in Minnesota, implemented a youth hockey fundraising program with the film merchandise, and produced the Hollywood Hat Trick Celebrity All Star Hockey Charity event at the Target Center in December 1996 that made donations to Minnesota charities prior to the event.
The corporate finance team developed a unique financing structure that mitigated risk to investors. It provided three options for investors to invest into various stages of the film project and the level of risk and return each wanted to receive. Three different limited partnership interests were created - A. B, and C. The A investors provided the producers complete access to the funds invested with the highest return. B and C investors chose to have less return and their investment was escrowed in a money market account at a major bank generating interest on their funds. Until film milestones such as talent being signed were accomplished these funds could not be used. The structure also was developed for broker dealers who would not usually risk investing their clients money by allowing them to still make a commission of 10% for selling the deal. The difference of 90% of investors money went into the escrowed money market account and received interest.
The film project was put on hold in 1996 because the producers of the film made a determination that the escalating costs related to the option and terms of the film script and potential unforseen costs were not a risk acceptable to offer to investors.

Our properties include World Arena Rugby, or WAR for short (www.worldarenarugby.com). WAR serves a niche segment of professional sports, rugby. "Niche" to the United States, that is. For over one hundred years, rugby has been a sports tradition on every continent of the world, but has had slow growth in the U.S. which has been dominated by other American pasttimes such as baseball, basketball and football. However, just like soccer, rugby is beginning to enjoy acceptance because of the speed and RAW strength of the sport. It took soccer (futbol, football) over 10 years to become an established competitive sport in the U.S. and ZMBC expects WAR to eventually enjoy the same loyalty afforded the sport by fans around America. With WAR's debut scheduled for the summer of 2013, ZMBC expects WAR to bring exceptional value to the company and its shareholders as an exciting, interesting and competitive alternative to traditional American sports.
ZMBC also operates a business data and investing newsletter business in FNIN, First National Information Network (www.fnin.com), and Investor Concepts(www.investorconcepts.com).
