Key Drivers

Dollar Age. This catalog has a Dollar Age of 4.68 years. This means the majority of royalties earned in the last 12 months came from songs that have collected royalties for nearly 5 years. A high Dollar Age like this suggests stability and longevity. This collection’s top-earning work is “Promise This,” which was released in 2010 and royalties continue to remain consistent. A catalog containing mature works with consistent earnings is something worth noting as an investor. This can help sustain a catalog's earnings moving forward.

International. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 74% of historical earnings. Although international royalty distribution can lag behind domestic payments and arrive with limited detail, as the winner of this auction you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by ASCAP, 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.

Pop/Streaming. According to the BuzzAngle 2018 Music Report, pop titles were the second-most streamed songs last year, representing 19.3% of all streams, up from 15.6% in 2017. Streaming accounts for 16% of this pop catalog's earnings last year.
