Good Times as One Media iP bucks the trend

A recent trade study of the music business during 2014 (reported by Musically) established that digital revenues worldwide were up 6.9% in value last year (2014) to $6.85bn. The growth was stunted due to downloads (the iTunes model) dropping by 8% overall (10.9% for single tracks and 4.2% for digital albums). Streaming (the Spotify model) was up by 39% ($1.57bn) representing 23% of total digital income, taking up the slack caused by the loss in download revenue, (CD sales were down by 8%) streaming up by 18% on 2013 with Spotify, Deezer, Rdio, Napster, Tidal and others achieving 41million paying subscribers.  This represents a growth of over 500% since 2010 and a 40% increase over 2013. Global sales as a whole including all formats were down 0.4% overall. The industry feeling is that this is encouraging and suggests that the market drop since the turn of the millennium is reaching a turning point.
The industry will have to watch 2015 very carefully as to how much music sales (CDs and downloads) decline this year and monitor the growth in streaming versus the fall in other formats to establish the shape of the evolving music industry.

One Media's end of year numbers for October 2014 showed turnover growth of 9.5% and normalized profit increase of 21.7% over the previous year (the 2014 reported pretax profit increase was 95% after AIM cost attributed in its 2013 numbers).

"As a small business we are able to manage the 'curves' and respond quickly said Michael Infante OMIP's CEO "Our strengths are in our diversification across all the media platforms including YouTube, which remains the 'dark horse of streaming income, with now over 1.5bn users. Monetisation and profit is a long wait for Spotify, as they are a pure delivery channel. As a content owner, we are profitable, debt free, cash resourced and paying dividends. Sure we have grown slowly but unlike many of our peers, listed or private, we have remained very positively ahead of the pack."

Ivor Novello winner Mungo Jerry (Ray Dorset) famed for the global hit In the summertime, which is estimated to have sold a staggering thirty million units and is now officially recognised as the most played summer song of all time, will be releasing his exclusive new album Good Times: Some Hits & More Stuff through One Media in May 2015.  May the good times roll on for One Media iP Ltd, as they continue to stay one step ahead.

    Report from WestHouse Securities

    Written by WestHouse Securities

    Michael Infante, Chairman and CEO of One Media plc came in to tell us more about the company he founded in 2005. One Media acquires and exploits intellectual property rights, repackaging content from years gone by, using its proprietary software, so that it is ‘digitally ready’. One Media has a catalogue of performance rights over 200,000 music tracks generally from the 1950s-1990s, and 8,000 videos. This content is delivered to over 600 web-based music and video stores (such as iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and YouTube). Michael pointed out that the industry is now in the midst of another shift away from digital downloads towards streaming. The speed and ultimate effect of this transition are still in question and this has caused forecasts for 2015 and 2016 to be moderated at the time of the Company’s final results last week. With streaming there is no fixed price, but a minimum subscription fee. This impacts habits – for instance consumers tend to be more experimental with music choices. The effect on the type of content One Media owns is as yet unknown. To date it has been a case of an 80:20 rule, where 20% of content works hard and generates 80% of One Media’s income. Unlike other providers that cater to ‘hit’ music audiences, no one track/artist does more than 1% of One Media’s turnover. Outside of this core business, one Media has two other business areas: (1) ‘Sync’ a new part of the business that sweats the long tail of assets, by making them search-able and purchase-able for films etc. (2) an expanding video library (which currently consists of 8,000 programmes; there are more opportunities with tv/film content versus music to be ‘sliced and diced’ in different ways, such as creating short clips concentrating on certain scenes or themes…these are leveraged and monitised across YouTube.

    The likes of YouTube and Spotify take a large chunk for the use of their platforms. However there seem to be plans afoot, albeit very early stage, for One Media to create an owned, more B2C offering as it is exploring technology options. Nearer term, we would expect more content acquisition in particular in the area of tv/film (which is only 5% of the current business). The Company has been finding that – similar to what was seen with audio content – tv/film content as it ages is becoming more available for acquisition. Given he owns c.35% Michael stressed that he is only interested in deals that he considers good value, and outlined a number of transaction structures that are persuasive for current owners. The next 12-18 months will be a very interesting time for the Company and though organic growth expectations have been moderated, further content acquisitions alongside the build-out of technology to enable more B2C (such as apps) could add to growth potential.

    The landscape has evolved unrecognisably since the early days of the gramophone, each evolution presenting new challenges and whilst the mediums may have changed along the way, the opportunity to monetise audio and visual IP is undeniable. We remain confident in our activities and are flexible enough to move with the changes and set new horizons and opportunities for all of our content.

  • Update Bulletin Feb 2015 from Michael Infante CEO for OMiP Partners

    Update Bulletin Feb 2015 from Michael Infante CEO for OMiP Partners

    2015 is a new challenging year. So many changes so many upsets. That is how the industry is viewing much of what has happened in the last 3 months. From a One Media perspective and with our 10 years of experience in the digital environment I suppose it is all to be expected. The landscape has changed, the digital model of iTunes and full track downloading is going to become an old format its being said, whilst the streaming model of Spotify's business model, becomes the Kings New Clothes. The press is littered with artists complaining of lower income and statistics are being banded about regarding the shift and its overall effect on labels income, and if you believe everything you read were all going to rush out and replace our collections with vinyl...
