◎根據瑞典媒體Di Digital的報導，Spotify的創始人Daniel Ek和Martin Lorentzon已表示有意出售更多的該公司股份，而美國證券交易委員會於10月1日和2日提交的文件在報導發佈時尚未以數位方式提供。當最近的一筆股份交易完成之後，這對創辦人就會已售出這間他們在2006年成立的公司的約2.21億美元的股票。
◎根據該報導，Daniel Ek在7月至9月之間出售了336,213股價值6,170萬美元的股票，而上個月底他表明有意再出售6,990萬美元的股份。Martin Lorentzon在7月至9月之間共售出317,800股總計5870萬美元，並於9月中旬宣布他有意以3180萬美元的價格出售另外174,250股股票。
◎Spotify的代表Sofie Grant告訴該媒體，「作為其長期財務策略的一部分，Daniel Ek將在未來9個月內出售一小部分Spotify的股票。此次股票出售將只佔他持有該公司股份的一小部分」。而Daniel Ek和Martin Lorentzon拒絕發表評論。
◎這兩位創辦人仍然擁有該公司很大比例的股份，此次出售只減少了他們在該公司的總持股量約半個百分點，Daniel Ek從8.8%降至8.3%，而Martin Lorentzon則從12.2%降至11.8%。Martin Lorentzon仍然是該公司的最大股東，Daniel Ek是第三大股東，而去年底以股票交換方式收購該公司10%股份的騰訊則是第二大股東。
Spotify's founder Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon have signaled their intention to sell more shares in the company, according to the Swedish publication Di Digital, citing SEC filings registered Oct. 1 and 2 that were not available digitally at press time.
When the most recent sale is completed, the pair will have sold approximately $221 million in stock of the company they founded in 2006.
According to the report, Ek sold 336,213 shares $61.7 million worth of stock between July and September, and late last month signaled his intent to sell another $69.9 million sold in July–September for a total of $61.7 million.
Lorentzon sold 317,800 shares between July and September for a total of $58.7 million, and in mid-September declared his intent to sell another 174,250 shares for $31.8 million.
"Daniel will sell a small share of Spotify shares in the next nine months as part of his long-term financial strategy. This sale of shares will constitute a minimal part of his holding in the company," Spotify rep Sofie Grant told the paper. Ek and Lorentzon declined comment.
The pair still own a large percentage of the company: The sale decreases each of the founders' total holdings in the company by approximately half a percentage point: Ek's goes from 8.8% to 8.3%, while Lorentzon's drops from 12.2 to 11.8. Lorentzon remains the company's top shareholder and Ek its third, with Tencent, which acquired 10% of the company in a stock swap late last year, at No. 2
