At the pubco's recent holiday party, UMPG CEO Jody Gerson is joined by none other than Sir Lucian Grainge, who rode his trusty steed down Colorado Blvd. to join the festivities and hail Gerson's banner year, which included an increase in global gross revenue (up nearly 4% over 2015), global EBITDA (up nearly 5% over 2015) and global sync revenues (up 13% over 2015). Also, company-wide use of the word "global" increased 27% year over year. Later, the two admired an ice sculpture in the likeness of Evan Lamberg.
