    ◎BMG報告稱,儘管COVID-19大流行持續發生中,但2020上半年收入仍然增加。
    ◎根據母公司(Bertelsmann)的財務報告,BMG稱,今年前六個月的收入為2.82億歐元,比2019年同期增長了4.8%。扣除利息,稅項,折舊和攤抵前的收益保持不變,為4900萬歐元。
    ◎BMG將其表現歸功於該公司音樂發行業務的強勁表現,以及唱片目錄在串流的增長,比上一年增長了49%。BMG表示,在此期間,數位業務佔唱片收入的83%,佔音樂發行收入的48%。這種增長被不利因素所抵消,其中包括疫情大流行導致BMG全球19家辦事處被迫關閉,926名員工遠端工作。
    ◎BMG執行長(Hartwig Masuch)表示,儘管音樂行業的併購活動很高,但自2017年以來,公司並未進行重大收購,重點是透過為藝人和詞曲作者提供更好,更公平,更高效的服務來實現增長。毫無疑問,音樂人正在因大流行而受到傷害,這給唱片公司和音樂發行商帶來特別的責任,幫助藝人和詞曲作者,將他們的收入最大化。

    BMG reports that it increased its revenue in the first half of fiscal 2020, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
    According to financial filings by parent company Bertelsmann, BMG reported revenue of €282m for the first six months of the year, a modest 4.8% gain over the same period in 2019. Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization stayed even with last year at €49m.
    BMG attributed the performance to robust performance by the company’s music publishing business and growth in streaming of its recorded catalog, which increased by 49% from the previous year.
    Digital accounted for 83% of recordings revenue and 48% of music publishing revenue during the period, BMG said.

    The growth was offset by headwinds that included the forced shuttering of 19 of BMG’s offices around the world due to the pandemic, leaving 926 employees working remotely.
    “To deliver a record result in the midst of a pandemic is a remarkable achievement. It is a testament to our artist-centric business model, but also to our 926-strong team worldwide who went to extraordinary lengths to maintain service to our artist and songwriter clients,” said BMG CEO Hartwig Masuch.
    “Our growth is almost entirely organic. Despite the high levels of M&A in the wider music industry, we have not made a major acquisition since 2017. Our focus is on growing by delivering better, fairer, more efficient services to artists and songwriters. There is no doubt musicians are hurting through the pandemic, particularly with the loss of live business. That puts a particular responsibility on record labels and music publishers to help artists and songwriters maximize their earnings,” he added.
