Here's exactly how many shares the major labels and Merlin bought in Spotify - and what those stakes are worth now
Here’s perhaps the most noteworthy thing about all of this: in its recent public announcement regarding its Spotify proceeds, Sony said: “Sony Music and The Orchard are committed to sharing with their artists and distributed labels any net gain they may realize from a sale of Sony Music’s equity stake in Spotify.” Do you spot it? “… any net gain”. In other words, Sony is publicly committing to passing a slice of profits to artists from Spotify stock which it actually paid for with its own money. An interesting addition to the ‘greedy majors’ narrative, no?

Warner has sold $400m of Spotify stock - and says it will share money with artists and label partners
Warner’s share sale transaction was either made in April or the first few days of May (after the major’s last fiscal quarter), according to Cooper. It suggests that Warner’s total pre-sale shareholding in Spotify was worth somewhere between $500m and $550m. Speaking on a quarterly earnings call today (May 7), Cooper tackled the thorny issue of what will now happen to the Spotify equity banked by his company. The exec confirmed, for the first time, what Warner’s distributed label partners can expect as a result. “We’ll share these proceeds [the same way] we share revenue from actual streams and so-called digital breakage,” said Cooper. “In addition, we will be sharing equity proceeds with distributed labels – if [this is] included in their agreements with us.”
