The Orchard-IODA Pairing

MORE DIGITAL DEVELOPMENTS: Coming on the heels of INgrooves’ acquisition of Fontana, digital aggregators The Orchard and Independent Online Distribution Alliance (IODA) have announced plans to merge, with Sony Music Entertainment a strategic investor in the combined company. Sony, which already owns 51% of IODA, will acquire the remainder, then complete the deal with The Orchard, owning at least 50% of the merged entity.
