Key Drivers

Dollar Age. This catalog has a Dollar Age of approximately 8.54 years. This means the majority of royalties earned in the last 12 months came from songs that have collected royalties for more than 8 years old. A high Dollar Age like this suggests stability and longevity.

“Erase My Scars” was released in 2009 and royalties continue to grow/remain consistent. A catalog containing mature works with consistent (and even growing earnings) is something worth noting as an investor. This can help sustain a catalog's earnings moving forward.

Rock & Streaming. According to the BuzzAngle 2018 Music Report, rock titles were the third-most streamed songs last year, representing 14% of all streams. Streaming accounts for 97% of this rock catalog's earnings last year — and its income is on the rise — a 16% increase over the previous four quarters.

In fact, this collection has shown significant streaming increases overall since its release. Historically, radio and SiriusXM earnings drove this catalog, making up over 60% of earnings but in recent years the shift to streaming is apparent and strong.
