Asking Price: $2,900,000
Profitable SaaS/Music Label with $400,000 in TTM rev and 4k+ original
A royalty-free music platform providing copyright-safe music and sound effects for content creators. The company sells licenses and subscriptions to customers and businesses + receives consistent YouTube earnings from royalties from its own music (which is being used in hundreds of thousands of videos) + has contracts with other companies that offer tools for content creators (i.e.: video editing apps).
> 25 million YouTube views with our music each month
The company is at its best, with a record number of users and immersed in the boom of the exponentially growing creator economy industry, which is now worth more than $100 billion.
Huge growth opportunity for the right buyer as the company has not had paid advertisement. The growth has been organic through a mix of freemium/premium plans, content marketing (a few posts per week), basic social media postings, and SEO.
The company and brand is pretty well-known and it has a great reputation.
Represents a $40 billion+ market that is anticipated to grow 9% annually through 2030 (this high level of growth is not frequently seen in other markets and industries).
> Because of their nature, music royalties are a great source of consistent recurring revenue income which has shown their propensity to provide an excellent ROI.
> Essentially independent of the general market volatility
> There is a mass of expected regulatory changes sweeping across the US and Europe with better controls in place to protect music. These aim to rights holders for their contributions and will, in turn, increase the increasing rates of streaming revenues.
“I think everyone realized that publishing catalogs were assets you could finance, like a building. And the forecasts the investment banks are making for the number of streaming subscribers in the next 10 years are extraordinary. So investment bankers, hedge funds, private equity – they all look at this as an asset class.” — Martin Bandier, former CEO and chairman of Sony/ATV Music Publishing
