    ◎TikTok的母公司ByteDance的價值是否超過Spotify,騰訊音樂,Vivendi和SiriusXM的總和?根據Bloomberg的一份報告,可能如此。
    ◎這是基於來自私人股票交易的數據。報告稱:一些交易最近對這家中國公司的估值在1050億美元至1100億美元之間。它的交易額也高達1400億美元。(Spotify的市值為352.9億美元,騰訊音樂為204.7億美元,SiriusXM為229億美元,Vivendi為221.2億美元,總計為1007.8億美元。)
    ◎風險投資公司「Manhattan Venture Partners」的合夥人(Andrea Walne)指出, ByteDance的交易反映了全球的消費者浪潮,他們認為ByteDance可以取代Facebook,成為領先的社交網絡。
    ◎ ByteDance並非一家單一產品公司。TikTok可能是大眾最了解的應用程式(加上最近推出的音樂串流媒體應用程式Resso),但它的第一個大熱門是Toutiao,剛開始為新聞應用程式,此後已擴展到其他類型的內容-包括用戶生成的內容。還有抖音Douyin,基本上是TikTok的中文版,並且有望從遊戲到辦公款體進入新市場。
    ◎關於ByteDance的市值猜測一直不斷,在Covid-19大流行之前,該公司已計劃在2020年第一季上市,同時還計劃在今年年底之前將員工人數擴增至100,000人。有關其財務狀況的信息較為粗略,媒體報導顯示,ByteDance在2018年創造了72億美元的收入,2019年光是上半年就在70億至82億美元之間。據報導,該公司在2018年10月籌集30億美元的融資時的預估值為750億美元。

    Here’s a question to chew on this morning: is TikTok’s parent company ByteDance worth more than Spotify, Tencent Music, Vivendi and SiriusXM put together? According to a report by Bloomberg, it might be.
    This is based on data from private share transactions. “Some trades recently valued the Chinese company between $105 billion and $110 billion on the secondary markets,” claimed the report. “It has also traded as high as $140 billion.”
    (Spotify’s market cap at the time of writing is $35.29bn, Tencent Music’s is $20.47bn, SiriusXM’s is $22.9bn, and Vivendi’s is $22.12bn – $100.78bn in total, since you ask.)
    There’s also a spicy quote from Andrea Walne, partner at VC firm Manhattan Venture Partners: “The trading of ByteDance is reflective of the global wave of consumers who agree that ByteDance can displace Facebook as the leading social network.”
    That’s quite the claim, but it is a reminder that ByteDance is far from a one-product company. TikTok may be the app we know it best for (plus its recently-launched music streaming app Resso) but its first big hit was Toutiao, originally a news app which has since expanded into other kinds of content – user-generated included. There’s also Douyin, essentially TikTok’s Chinese version, as well as anticipated moves into new markets from games to office software.
    Speculation about ByteDance’s value is far from idle: before the Covid-19 pandemic hit, the company had been tipped to go public in the first quarter of 2020, while also planning an aggressive expansion of its headcount to 100,000 people by the end of this year.
    Information on its finances is sketchier: media reports suggested that ByteDance generated revenues of $7.2bn in 2018, then between $7bn and $8.2bn in the first half of 2019 alone. The company was reportedly valued at $75bn in October 2018 when it raised a $3bn funding round.
    These figures will be front of mind for music rightsholders when they negotiate future licensing deals with TikTok and Resso, of course. ByteDance’s music and media ambitions are clear from its recruitment of senior Disney executive Kevin Mayer as COO of the parent company and CEO of TikTok.
