"Fulfilling a decade in this industry that is always changing by new technologies and influenced by its audience's new habits, is a milestone that makes us proud, especially when all our companies are performing successfully in the market. We have managed to form a technical, creative and executive team that has been able to position each of our companies within its space as a reference of quality and expertise. I am very grateful for our team and our clients, and I hope to continue with this dynamic of growth based on synergies and positive results," stated Villanueva, president, and CEO of Somos Group.
Villanueva said that progressively the Group's objective has been to extend its business from the distribution areas to the production and co-production of contents, establishing synergies with its other companies.

The company also ventures into the live production of the Latin American Music Awards and the Billboard Mexican Music Awards for Telemundo.
The Group participates in the production of feature films with Somos Films. To close, Somos Next successfully distributes content through its platforms FlixLatino and Pinguinitos, as well as directly through the online stores.
