Studios - Australia’s first company

have a new ownership structure!
a year-long journey of influencing Australian legislation,
we’re excited to officially transition to being Employee-Owned
This is a huge milestone in Meld’s story, and in Australia’s
company ownership story.
does Employee Owned by Trust mean?
an Employee Owned Trust or EOT is:
A trust established by a company to hold equity
on behalf of its employees, with usually all – or at
least a majority – of the shares being held by the trust.
being an EOT means that:
Over time we transition shares from our three founders
(owners) to the Meld EOT
· All permanent employees are beneficiaries
of this Trust
· As a beneficiary, every Meldster has
indirect ownership of Meld
· Every Meldster wears two hats: practitioner and business
· Every Meldster has a direct say in the
direction of the company through established engagement
· Every Meldster gets the benefit of equal
profit distribution due to our collective efforts.
