Key Drivers

International. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 61% of historical earnings. 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 17% of this pop catalog's earnings last year.
