This is an opportunity to collect 50% of the income generated by the sound recording copyrights from thousands of traditional and inspirational gospel songs. Up for auction is the seller's interest in the N'Vision Entertainment catalog, a large collection of over 2,000 recordings. 50% of this catalog generated $45,785 over the last 12 months.

This unique catalog collects royalties in multiple ways. The income generated comes from three different sources (one of which is a unique royalty stream not correlated to radio or streaming play):

1) Non-interactive Digital Performance Royalties:
Non-interactive digital services are very generally defined as those in which the user experience mimics a radio broadcast. So users may not choose the specific track or artist they wish to hear, but are provided a pre-programmed or semi-random combination of tracks, the specific selection and order of which remain unknown to the listener (i.e. no pre-published playlist). These royalties are currently distributed through SoundExchange from sources like Pandora, SiriusXM, iHeartRadio.com, etc.

2) Digital Distribution Royalties:
Anytime one of these songs is streamed on demand or digitally downloaded or sold, this catalog earns royalties. Digital distribution royalties are currently collected and paid through the Orchard from sources like iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon, etc.

3) Physical Sales
This music is available in hundreds of Christian stores through a disc-on-demand platform, myMEDIA BurnBar, from Integra Interactive. Every time one of these recordings is sold through this platform, sound recording royalties are generated.

Royalty Exchange will administer royalties from the Orchard and SoundExchange to the buyer on a quarterly basis and the first payment will be in November 2017. Integra will pay the buyer directly and will administer payments monthly starting September 2017.

Key Drivers
