Key Drivers

International Earnings. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 94% of earnings over the last 4 quarters. As the winner of this auction, you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by SESAC, regardless of when they were earned. As this collection earns primarily from countries outside the United States, it’s important to note that international earnings can often be reported to distributors with limited detail. These international earnings often include income from radio, streaming platforms, and TV/Film.
