Quantcast
I.B. Sony

SONY SIDE UP: Since Doug Morris took command of Sony Music in July 2011, the company has been on an extended winning streak, orchestrating the bestselling album of the modern era in Adele’s 21, and racking up three consecutive year-over-year increases in total marketshare. And though the Japanese parent company enigmatically chooses to group Morris’ recorded music and Marty Bandier’s publishing empire together in its earnings reports, the buzz inside 550 Madison is that both of these veterans remain at the tops of their games, and the fiscal Q3 numbers support this assertion. They show sizable year-over-year gains in sales (14.4%) and operating income (32.5%), with $1.38 billion in revenue and $207m in profit—and this despite a down quarter for the Japanese record company. Our own I.B. Bad has more to say about this and other pressing music stories in his latest column, which you'll find here. (2/14p)
