  • 索尼音樂財報因串流收入增加趨緩而表現不佳

      201906/1214:44

    ◎索尼音樂娛樂公司的財報顯示去年的銷售額為72億美元。利潤因為反映了對EMI Publishing的整合,幾乎翻了一番達到20.8億美元。但該公司對於今年的預測利潤將會低很多為12億美元。

    ◎索尼將不佳的財報結果歸因於較低的實體銷售額和新的會計準則。但串流的增長也放緩,收入僅增加15.3%至20.4億美元,這與2018年增長40%的情況相去甚遠。目前串流收入佔索尼錄製音樂收入的53.3%。實體音樂收入下降33.7%至8.01億美元。其競爭對手華納音樂集團最近公佈了實體銷售有小幅上升。

    ◎Travis Scott的《Astroworld》專輯是索尼在這個財年中最暢銷的產品,其次是Camila Cabello、Luke Combs、George Ezra、Calvin Harris和Khalid的專輯。

    詳細全文:

    Sony Music Entertainment reported flat sales of $7.20 billion for the last year. Profits almost doubled to $2.08 billion, reflecting the consolidation of EMI Publishing. But for the current year, the company forecast far lower profits of $1.20 billion.

    Sony attributed the poor results to lower physical sales and a new accounting standard.

    But streaming growth also slowed, with revenue from streaming up just 15.3% to $2.04 billion. That's a far cry from the 40% increase in 2018. Streaming now accounts for 53.3% of Sony's recorded music revenues.

    Physical music revenues fell 33.7% to $801 million. Competitor Warner Music Group recently posted a small increase in physical sales.

    Travis Scott's Astroworld was Sony's biggest seller during the financial year, followed by albums from Camila Cabello, Luke Combs, George Ezra, Calvin Harris and Khalid.
