SendR SE: SendR Group acquires Phonofile AS and is to double revenue
DGAP-News: SendR SE / Key word(s): Takeover/Merger
Hamburg, January 28th 2016 - Music service provider SendR SE (ISIN DE000A1YDAZ7), headquartered in Hamburg with offices in Berlin, London, Paris, Los Angeles and Singapore, and traded on the Berlin Stock Exchange and in the Marché Libre segment of the Euronext Paris exchange, announces its acquisition Phonofile AS, northern Europe's biggest digital service provider.
The result is one of the largest mergers in the recent history of the independent, digital music distribution segment. Under the umbrella of the SendR Group, Phonofile AS will join forces with finetunes GmbH (Hamburg), the German digital service pioneer in the field of digital music rights distribution. The companies will continue to operate autonomously and independently of one another. "Both companies will continue to use their respective strengths in each of their regional territories. The medium-term focus of the acquisition is on developing new, shared strategies and, in connection with this, on establishing a larger global presence. In this way, we can actively play an even more important role in this market in the future," said Henning Thieß, Executive Director of SendR SE.
The merger not only allows the Group to double revenue directly as part of the consolidation, but will also enable it to expand its global reach for the benefit of music licensers. This merger will make possible a unique and comprehensive approach to managing and marketing the licensers.
Henning Thieß, Executive Director of SendR SE: "Our many years of trailblazing work has received another vote of confidence. Northern Europe's biggest digital service provider, Phonofile AS, reinforces our unique selling points and the mutual trust between us. Together, we can ensure that we continue to provide our music licensers not only with the support to which they are accustomed and the comprehensive distribution of music titles, but also we can also enable a further, and even more comprehensive, market penetration for ourselves and our clients. In the ever-growing music streaming market, we have now reached a size that allows us to cover every aspect for our artists and licensers."
Erling Andersen, FONO: "This merger generates a new, major player in the music licensing market, one that can offer its customers considerable added value. Today, Phonofile AS is the leading independent distributor im Scandinavia, serving nearly 2000 labels. The merger with finetunes is another great step for Phonofile, which will strenghten both the commercial and financial position of the company in a very competitive market. For Norwegian indie companies this will be very good news, as their digital distribution and marketing partner Phonofile will be part of a strong alliance with great potential of market extention and further development of digital label services."
Until the integration into the Group has been completed, the parties have agreed not to disclose any information on the purchase price. SendR SE has, however, made known that ~25% of the purchase price will be paid in cash, and the remainder by issuing new shares.
