    ◎全球獨立發行商暨唱片廠牌服務公司Kobalt的財報顯示增長強勁,截至2018年6月30日的財年之中,收入同比增長25.3%至4.021億美元。

    ◎版稅收集總收入增長30%至4.94億美元。該公司的錄製音樂和廠牌服務部門AWAL在上一財年增長了50%。但Kobalt的稅後虧損為4270萬美元,增長了29%,該公司表示這是「有意識地決定經由對短期獲利能力進行戰略投資來讓增長優先」的結果。

    ◎Kobalt創始人兼執行長Willard Ahdritz在一份聲明中表示「我們一直專注於建立全球團隊,以支持快速發展的音樂產業。我們已經成為音樂產業中的技術領導者,我們正在深入投資於在整個音樂生態系統中構建創新的新產品和服務,以在包括出版、錄音、版稅收集、鄰接權和影視同步配樂上服務我們的客戶。我們的錄音業務AWAL快速增長,在上一財年實現了超過50%的增長,且預計今年將繼續保持類似的增長率。通過其獨特的多方案模式,AWAL旨在透過可擴展的平台為藝人在其職業生涯的各個階段提供服務。」

    Kobalt has reported strong growth for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2018. Revenues at the global indie publisher and label services firm rose 25.3% year-over-year to $402.1 million.

    Gross collections were up 30% percent to $494 million. AWAL, the company's recorded music and label services division, grew 50% during the last fiscal year.

    But Kobalt's after-tax loss was $42.7 million, up 29% which the company said resulted from the "conscious decision to prioritize growth through making strategic investments over short-term profitability."

    "We're outpacing the industry in terms of growth," said Kobalt founder and CEO Willard Ahdritz in a statement. "We've been laser-focused on building out the global team to support the rapidly growing music industry and setting up creators for success. We've established ourselves as the technology leader in the industry, and we are deeply investing in building innovative new products and services across the music ecosystem to super-serve our roster, across publishing, recordings, collections, neighbouring rights and synch. We are very excited by the rapid growth of AWAL, our recordings business, which achieved growth of over 50% in the last fiscal year and is anticipated to continue a similar growth rate this year. Through its unique multi-tiered model, AWAL is designed to serve artists at all stages of their careers on a scalable platform."
