The series will use former cars from various Formula racing series in addition to new builds. It will use both electric and fuel-powered cars.
- AMA Xtreme Dirt Bike Series - An AMA-sanctioned motorcycle racing series which involves off-road motorcycles on an artificial, man-made dirt track consisting of steep jumps and enduro obstacles such as rocks, boulders and logs. The series can be basically described as "RollerJam with dirt bikes", with a TV series of the name covering the races along with comedy skits (according to Robert "think Saturday Night Live with dirt bikes, injuries, and unscripted trips to the emergency room"), and music videos. The series will began in January 2017 with a race at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida, broadcasted on Pay-Per-View, Stainton Enterprises' television channels, and Sling TV as Pushing It To the Limit!. Racer ages go from 11 to 59.
- Indy Grand Touring Series - A INDYCAR-sanctioned touring car racing series, usually held on temporarily closed public roads, in temporarily closed public parks, or on temporarily closed or already closed airports' runways. Like the Indy Local Series, the series will use former cars from various Formula racing series in addition to new builds, and will use both electric and fuel-powered cars. Racing ages go from 13 to 69.
- Hooters All-Stock Series - A self-sanctioned stock car racing series, using former NASCAR, ARCA, and Allison Legacy stock cars. Racing ages go from 14 to 69.
On December 30, 2016, Stainton Enterprises bought Gibson Brands, Inc.
On January 2, 2017, Stainton Enterprises began trading on the New York Stock Exchange as SEI, on NASDAQ as SETM (literally standing for Stainton Enterprises: The Megacorporation, which Robert Stainton got from an Adbusters article criticizing his company), and on the S&P Composite 1500 Index. The same day, Stainton Enterprises purchased Hasbro and Mattel.
On January 4, 2017, Stainton Enterprises purchased the unincorporated coastal community of Bolinas, California, for $598,000. Bolinas is now one of two municipalities in the United States controlled by Stainton Enterprises, the other being Buffy, Illinois. New road signs for the town were installed on previously unmarked roads and State Route 1, with theft-proof bolts on the signs to prevent residents from taking them down like in the past.
On January 6, 2017, Stainton Enterprises purchased Reddit. The purchase led to the popularity of the hashtag #DammitRobert, which is used to make fun of Robert Stainton at his own expense. Robert has used the hashtag also. Robert also shut down the subreddit r/HailCorporate, calling it "cyberbullying", though he put it back up afterwards after outcry.
On January 7, 2017, Stainton Enterprises acquired Estonian software developer Markus Software, responsible for Markus Cinema System.

Ivan Stang was added to Stainton Enterprises' board of directors. Soon afterwards, broadcasts of the Hour of Slack began on radio stations WBBM-FM, WNVR (AM) and WIND (AM) in Chicago. Broadcasts on WIND have Nate Stainton's "Live from That One US Territory No One Cares About" radio show afterwards. On the same day, Stainton Enterprises purchased stakes in guitar manufacturing companies Fender and G&L.
Stainton Enterprises debuted it's new RAGE-based 2D motion capture technology, KaBoom! 2D-Capture, compatible with Toon Boom Animation, Adobe Animate, Adobe Flash, and Moho, on January 11, 2017.

On January 26, 2017, Stainton entered negotiations with Orkla, to acquire the latter's food, snacks, food ingredients and health divisions. The same day, Stainton was considering acquiring Arla Foods, "with an acquisition of it's Kruså Mejeri, Taulov Mejeri, Nr.Vium Mejer, Holstebro Flødeost and Sipoon Meijeri as a back-up plan". However, all acquisitions succeeded except for Arla Foods and Sipoon Meijeri.
Soon afterwards, Air Labs acquired a major British Raspberry Pi-focused programming and tools developer Cherry plc.
On January 27, 2017, Stainton purchased Pinnacle Foods, a packaged foods company, headquartered in Parsippany, New Jersey, that specializes in the shelf stable and frozen food categories.
On January 28, 2017, Stainton Enterprises, Equality Illinois and the ILGA held the Rally for Lila at the Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois. Tens of thousands of people attended the rally, which was hosted by Hillsboro, Missouri high school student Lila Perry, known for a 2015 incident in which 150 students walked out of Hillsboro High School in a protest over her use of the girls’ locker room and bathrooms at the school, and Robert Stainton. The rally was produced for Stainton, Equality Illinois, and the ILGA by Iron Mike Productions and Robert's company Animators Association of America Business Group Conglomerate, Inc. The rally featured guests such as the MythBusters (Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman), Robert's wife Kristian Michaels, and Julie Brown. Robert came up with the rally after waking up from a dream in which a large rally for transgender rights was being held at the speedway. Most of the rally's humor was satirical, and proceeds from the rally went to the British charity Sparkle, the NOH8 Campaign, the Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists, and the Human Rights Campaign (HRC). Plans to donate to the Freedom from Religion Foundation were considered, but the plans were cancelled due to Robert Stainton's hatred of atheism.
On February 9, 2017, Stainton Enterprises purchased Warner Music Group. This caused the amount of Stainton's video and audio library to clock up to 945,678,990 hours. In a interview with Robert Stainton conducted by RedEye, Robert said it would take 5,678 days, or a little over 15 years non-stop, to watch or listen to everything media-related owned by Stainton Enterprises, it's subsidiaries, and it's divisions. Robert then stated "Have fun locking yourself in your room for the next 15 years! And assuming if anyone reading this thinks the few remaining video stores in America have every VHS and DVD of our shows, you'll need to camp at one for a long time."
On February 15, 2017, Stainton began a licensing service, GrePro Licensing Worldwide.
On April 8, 2017, Stainton sold Hanna-Barbera back to Warner Bros. Animation
On June 17, 2017, The Greeny Channel Advertising Services opened even more offices in: City of San Marino, Montegiardino (San Marino), Chiavari, Reggio Emilia, Turin (Italy), Manaus (Brazil), Monterrey, Tijuana (Mexico), Fitchburg, Lynbrook, Harrisburg (United States), Kingstown (Saint Vincent and the Grenadines), Charlotte Amalie, Anna's Retreat, Cruz Bay, Christiansted (United States Virgin Islands), Baghdad (Iraq), Tehran (Iran), Havana (Cuba), North Nicosia (Northern Cyprus), Nicosia (Cyprus), Ramallah, East Jerusalem (Palestine), Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, Tzrifin (Israel).

On May 30, 2016, Stainton Enterprises Japan and the Lotte conglomerate announced to enter negotiations about merging to form SL Group.
Negotiations about an acquisiton of Apetit Oyj were also started on May 1, 2016.
On May 10, 2017, Stainton Enterprises Turkey and Doğan Holding announced that they were entering negotiations to merge to form SD Holding A.Ş., which would do business under the Stainton and Doğan names.

On January 10, 2018, Stainton Enterprises China and the Chinese government entered negotiations to have Stainton Enterprises China, Beijing North Star, and Beijing Enterprises to merge to form Stainton-Beijing Entertainment & Technology Group Co. Ltd.
Negotiations were started by Stainton Enterprises to purchase Clearwater Partners II LLC on January 18, 2018. This came after Clearwater purchased Greeny Phatom Productions LLC and most of the GP franchise days earlier. If the purchase is to be finalized, Clearwater would fall under Stainton Media Group and the GP franchise would be partially under Stainton control again.
However, the plans came through, after investors and shareholders had creative differences, as Clearwater Animation continues holding the rights to the Greeny Phatom franchise until Robert Stainton stops harassing the company's chair of directors. This also caused Terry Ward to publicly announce a potential buy out of the conglomerate.
After Robert Stainton and his associates were accused of sexual harassment, Stainton Media Group ended up filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and started liquidation. Selected assets were sold to All3Media, Warner Bros International Television Production, Nice Entertainment Group.
The first time Stainton failed to acquire a company was in December 29, 2015, when Stainton tried to acquire The Lucasfilm Group (consisting of Lucasfilm, Lucasfilm Animation, Lucas Online, Skywalker Sound, Indsutrial Light & Magic, Lucas Licensing, Lucasfilm Story Group, and LucasArts) and Maker Studios from Disney.
As of December 2015, they also failed to acquire MGA Entertainment, Haribo, Saint-Globan, Mondelez International, Cloetta/Leaf International BV, and Alibaba Group.
They also attempted at acquiring Restel Oy from Tradeka in May 2016.
Another merger in progress is the merger between Carlsberg Group, Tuko Logistics, Toms International, Leaf Brands, The Weetabix Food Company, Sitos srl, Dr Pepper/Snapple Group, and Stainton Food & Life LLC (with possibly Orkla Foods) to create Stainton Foods division, with all the active brands of the respective companies as surviving brands, and other food companies as the division's subsidiaries. However, it was not accepted by the US Administration before 2017, but was accepted by European commission.
On December 1, 2017, Stainton Enterprises began negotiations to purchase Viacom. They were denied by the investors for anti-trust reasons.

Cartfish (formerly "Balls" Studios Riverside) is a quality assurance, localization and game development company located in Riverside, United States.
They made games based on Mikkoman & Eetuman comics and Geo's World franchise. They also used to modify GeoBob Engine 4, a game engine developed by "Balls" Engine Development Team with contributions by other "Balls" Studios. Cartfish modified the engine to facilitate game development on Microsoft Windows, along with the PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360 consoles. GeoBob Engine evolved from the id Tech originally developed by id Software for use in the sixth generation console era versions of games and the upcoming games.
"Balls" Studios Riverside announced Geo Adventure Dimensions, which was their last game, considering the last few years when most of the "Balls" studios (which were active since the first acquisition in 1990s) were closed. The lay-offs hit Riverside studio in July 30th, 2014, when 80% of the staff (which was 120 people) was laid off, but eventually 95 people moved to Wingstar Studios, while 25 people moved to Dambuster Studios, owned by Deep Silver.
As part of acquisition of the parent company "Balls" Corporation by Apple Entertainment, the 98% of staff from Wingstar Studios and over 20 staff members from the Riverside studio merged to now-independent "Balls" Game Labs (soon OK Labs). There was rumors that the studio will close down, once it finishes Geo Adventure Dimensions, which will be released in July 2015.
The studio has been closed down, but merged to "Balls" headquarters in Boston, in June 2015.
In January 2016, the employees were re-hired and the studio has been revived as Cartfish, a Riverside studio owned by GreenyWorld Interactive.
