It was first formed as Lyons/Nichols/Bourne as a joint venture between DLE Corporation, Pip Pip Enterprises, Inc. and Comictoon Productions following the partnership between Dan P. Lyons, Darren Pipster, and Marshall Bourne that was formed on May 2, 2020. The company's first production was going to be the Rodfellows short film, Life of Danny Cat, but was cancelled due to polygamy and other controversies.

On September 5, 2020, it was announced that Lyons/Nichols/Bourne would be changed and rebranded to Lyons/Mortensen/Nichols/Bourne to include Alexander Mortensen's involvement, thus adding French Fry Animations to the joint venture.

On January 28, 2021, LMNB, Inc. terminated their ownership with SnouterCWK following corporate arguments and drama. The following day, Horizon Galaxy Enterprises was in the talks of acquiring LMNB, Inc.

On February 2, 2021, LMNB, Inc. closed down as a company and was folded into GlideFan's Azul Gemstone Entertainment (later known as Phantom Studios), however survives as a label until the company was relaunched by Peppermint City Entertainment on February 8, 2021.

As of April 22, 2021, after Peppermint City Entertainment liquidate all assets and cease operations, LMNB, Inc. went independent and since May 2021, LMNB closed as a company again and is now a label.
