In Spring of 2005, the restructured studio presents an initial public offering and begins trading on the free market.

In 2006, the studio secures a long-term lease of two industrial halls adjacent to the studio lot, allowing it to double its stage capacity. In the Fall, the studio purchases Prague’s Central Scope Productions sro, allowing it a greater ability to provide international production services.
