What type of rights are included?
Sterling Fox is listing 100% of the international songwriting royalties (excluding the United States) generated by the songs included in the catalogue.
Songwriters and producers to a song are entitled to a share of the royalties generated by a song’s music composition and sound recording, respectively. Songwriter royalties are usually paid to the songwriter by a partnering publisher, collective management organization or performing rights organization, while producers are usually paid by the record label or distribution company they signed with.
At what frequency will royalties be paid out?
The royalties are distributed by BMI quarterly. The royalty payout on ANote Music Platform might account for some extra time, in order to perform our due diligence activities. ANote Music will be distributing the exact amounts straight to the investor’s account and portfolio wallet as soon as all funds are available and have been verified. The standard fees are applied as is the case for other auctions: 4% when the rights have been acquired during primary market listings, 8% in the case they were traded on the secondary market. For more information on our fees, please read more on the dedicated section on our platform.
How is the initial price of the asset determined?
As with any listing on the ANote Music platform, an in-depth due diligence process has been executed by our team, carefully analysing and assessing the historical track record of the catalogue. In agreement with the rights owner (Sterling Fox), the initial price has been determined based on the historical average royalties generated in the last 3 years (multiple of 10x over the royalties generated in the last 12 months).
Music rights holders offer a portion of their rights up for auction. The catalogues undergo a full due diligence process, reviewing all historical data, contracts and future potentials before getting listed for auction.
You’ll have access to clear charts and easy-to-understand tools, summaries of all necessary financial data and information. You can then decide to place bids during the auction phase and acquire fractional shares of music catalogues. Once the auction ends and your bids are successful, shares will be distributed to your portfolio. The shares become instantly tradable on the secondary market.
Each time royalties are being paid out, you’ll receive the funds, pro-rata to the percentage of the catalogue owned, straight to your account.
