Universal

In the last year or so it has been tough times for the major record labels. The majors have not really been moving into the digital as fast as they should, whilst at the same time not understanding the digital business models.

Whilst this still remains the case Universal have released their lastest quarters results, and they seem very surprising to me.

  • $3.97 billion revenue for first 3Q’s of ’08
  • + 3.5% without currency fluctuations
  • + 33% for digital sales which “”more than offset” lower CD sales
  • Earnings 21.8% to $516M before deduction of interest, tax and amortization
  • Net is lower due to restructuring costs
  • Full press release
