  • 索尼音樂驅動索尼集團有創紀錄的第三季,但別指望第四季也會表現這麼好

    ◎全球娛樂和電子巨頭索尼的財報顯示第三季度的淨利潤達到創紀錄的37.8億美元。索尼的電影部門成長而遊戲部門在掙扎,真正推動獲利的明星是音樂,但即使整體音樂部門正在飆升,仍可看出索尼音樂娛樂正在掙扎的警告信號。

    ◎索尼音樂的營運利潤從3.61億美元增長了13.5億美元,這得益於EMI音樂出版的整合所帶來的一次性收益。然而整體而言,音樂部門的收入減少9%至19.2億美元。最後一次下調的數據與其他的錄製音樂領域形成鮮明對比;Vivendi公司的環球音樂集團的的收入正在不斷增加,且由於串流媒體成長使得該領域總體正在飆升。在索尼,本季度的串流媒體收入增長了13%,實體銷售減少了38%。

    ◎索尼音樂需要新的熱門作品。Travis Scotts的《Astroworld》於2018年8月3日發行,是索尼過去兩個季度的暢銷專輯。上一季度前5名的專輯是Travis Scotts的《Astroworld》、Bob Dylan的《More Blood, More Tracks: The Bootleg Series vol. 14》、George Ezra的《Staying at Tamara's》、Little Mix的《LM5》和Pentatonix的《Christmas is Here!》。

    詳細全文:

    Global entertainment and electronics giant Sony reported a record $3.78B net profit in Q3. Sony's film division grew and gaming struggled. The real star driving profits was music, but here were warning signs that Sony Music Entertainment is struggling, even as the overall music sector is soaring.

    Operating profits at Sony Music were up $1.35 billion from $361 million, thanks to a one time gain from the consolidation of EMI music publishing. Overall, however, revenues in the music division dipped 9% to $1.92 billion.

    That last downward stat is in contrast to the rest of the recorded music sector. Vivendi's Universal Music Group is booking growing revenue, and the sector overall is surging thanks to streaming growth.

    At Sony, streaming revenue grew 13% in the quarter, while physical sales fell off the cliff, dropping 38%.

    Sony Music needs new hits. Travis Scotts "Astroworld," released on August 3, 2018, has been Sony's top seller for the last two quarters.

    The Top 5 records this last quarter were Scott, Bob Dylan ("More Blood, More Tracks: The Bootleg Series vol. 14"), George Ezra ("Staying at Tamara's"), Little Mix ("LM5"), and Pentatonix ("Christmas is Here!").
