Judging by market caps and public valuations, Apple could snap up Vivendi ( $23bn ), Sony Corp ( $38bn ), ,

Sony Music earned $1.2bn from streaming platforms in 2016

Sony Music earned $1.2bn from streaming platforms in 2016Sony Music Entertainment generated 134.83bn Yen ( $1.24bn ) from streaming music in calendar 2016 – and 40.65bn Yen ( $372m ) in the three months to end of December alone. That means Sony’s recorded music division is now earning approximately $124m every month, $31m every week, $4m every day and $167,000 every hour from the likes of Spotify and Apple Music. This quarterly streaming haul of 40.65bn Yen was up 30.3% on the 31.2bn Yen ( $286m ) recorded in the same period of 2015. Physical sales were still the top money-maker for Sony Music labels across the whole of 2016, but only just. CD and vinyl generated 137.23bn Yen ( $1.26bn ) in the year – 1.8% (around $21m) more than streaming. In the three months to end of December, which includes the bumper Christmas gifting period, Sony’s physical recorded music sales stood at 44.97bn Yen ( $412m ) down 24.6% on the equivalent quarter in 2015.

This was Sony Music’s contract with Spotify

This was Sony Music\'s contract with Spotify
Over the last year the music industry has been in flux as artists, labels, and streaming services jockey over the best way to build the future of their business. Taylor Swift pulled her catalog from Spotify; Tidal launched a new platform owned by artists, not record companies; and Apple is preparing to muscle in on the market with its own offering. The one thing missing from much of this discussion has been the details on how deals get done between these groups, but that is no longer the case. More interestingly, the contract details how Sony Music uses a Most Favored Nation clause to keep its yearly advances from falling behind those of other music labels, how Spotify can keep up to 15 percent of revenues “off the top” from ad sales made by third parties, and the complex formula that determines how much labels get paid per stream. This contract — like every other contract involving a music label and a streaming service — has been secret until now.
