WMG CEO Stephen Cooper said:

Some strong new releases, as well as outstanding execution by our operators around the world during the holiday season, made for an excellent start to our fiscal year. Our extraordinary roster of songwriters and artists, combined with our first-class management team and our sustained investment in new opportunities, means that we are well-positioned to build on this success as the industry evolves.”

    MAN in charge of digital activities has no time for me in his 2015 BUDGET!
    Just busy licensing his goodwill to digital NERDS.
    He also refuses to connect me with Len Blavatnik, the owner.

    You contact Access Industries and they will refer you to the MAN giving away the business!
    …and the music circus keeps marching into all inclusive streaming SWAMP!

        In most business just few folks understand where the money comes from.

        The digital guru I was referred to is very busy executing his 2015 “budget” he has no time to listen to any ideas able to leapfrog him effortlessly in to 2020! He is just BUSY giving away the goods to TUBES.

        Blavatnik owns the outfit and has brilliant hand for money.
