Invest in a catalog of Swedish hip-hop singles driven by streaming. The offering is unique in that it includes both public performance and mechanical royalties for the tracks for the lifetime of the copyrights.
This collection generates public performance and mechanical earnings distributed by the Swedish performing rights society STIM. The “Financials” tab lists the organization’s unique payment schedule.
Domestic streaming royalties are the leading source of earnings accounting for 90% of last year’s total.
You’ll notice a significant spike in earnings in February 2021. This is a result of STIM processing a one-time adjustment for Spotify from H2-2017. Although this is not expected to occur again, the winning bidder will be entitled to all future royalty payments regardless of when earned.
ABOUT THE CATALOG:
The catalog’s top song with 70% of earnings is “Trakten Min” from one of Sweden’s biggest hip-hop artists Yasin. Released in 2016 on the album Allstars, the track has 25+ million spins on Spotify — making it Yasin’s most popular song on the platform.
It’s important to note that although “Trakten Min” was released in 2016, the songwriter was not affiliated with a performing rights organization until 2018. As a result, earnings for “Trakten Min” only date back to December 2018.
The next highest-earnings track is “Sanningen” — a 2020 release from Swedish hip-hop artist Nineb Youk. Also from Nineb Youk are “Kontant” and “Rain” both from 2019.
Streaming Growth Worldwide. According to IFPI’S Global Music Report 2021, subscription streaming revenues for recorded music increased 18.5% over the previous year. That’s the sixth consecutive year of growth, totaling 443 million paid subscription accounts worldwide. Total streaming (including both paid subscription and advertising-supported) grew 19.9% and reached $13.4 billion, or 62.1% of total global recorded music revenues.
NOTE ABOUT DISTRIBUTION FREQUENCY
STIM pays on a quarterly basis, with four regular payments each calendar year. In addition to these quarterly payments, STIM also distributes "out of cycle" payments for digital music services. These dates are estimated (not fixed) and can vary throughout the year. The winner of this auction will receive all future distributions for the included works in this offering paid by STIM.

EXCHANGE RATES AND FOREIGN TAX WITHHOLDING
Please note: Royalties for this asset are reported in Swedish Krona. To calculate the payments in U.S. Dollars, Royalty Exchange applied the average historical foreign exchange rate for the distribution month (via X-rates.com).
The future royalties will be paid to Royalty Exchange in Swedish Krona, converted to U.S. Dollars upon receipt, and then paid in U.S. Dollars to the winning investor. Assets paid in foreign currency entail additional risk as foreign exchange rate changes will cause fluctuations in future cash flows.
Additionally, because the royalty payments originate in Sweden, the purchaser may be subject to withholding taxes, depending on their domicile. You can learn more about foreign tax withholding here. Since all investors’ tax situations are different, please consult your tax advisor if you have questions on foreign withholding.
