We are excited to be part of the team that will continue to grow the business at this important juncture in music publishing’s evolution.” Added KKR’s Philipp Freise: “This acquisition validates the growth story that we set out to build when we launched the innovative BMG partnership with Bertelsmann last year, combining KKR's capital with BMG management expertise.” (3/26a)
