EL Editions is listing 5% of publishing royalties from its catalogue on the ANote Music Primary Market. This includes 248 tracks, across a variety of genres including Pop, EDM, Folk-pop, Rock and Electro. The listing offers investors the right to receive cash flows deriving both from already-produced tracks, as well as from songs that EL Editions publishes and acquires throughout a 10-year deal horizon. The listing itself has a maturity of 10 years, after which the full royalty stream will return to EL Editions.

EL Editions, founded in 2009 by singer and composer Bertrand Louis, has brought together the publishing rights to some of the most successful and promising songwriters and composers in French pop music all under one banner. Amongst these are Vianney, who over the past decade has been named Songwriter of the Year, Male Artist of the Year and Original Song of the Year at the prestigious, Victoires de la musique awards. Also included are Boulevard des Airs, who have been met with huge success thanks to songs such as “Emmene-Moi”, “Cielo Ciego”, “Demain de bon matin” and “Laisser Faire”. The catalogue also contains songs from renowned artists such as TiBZ, June the Girl, Elise Reslinger, Maxime Manot, Chuly Santa Maria, Ulysses from Mars, B’Boy and Trackhead.

Since 2018, EL Editions’ catalogue has generated royalties exceeding €300,000 yearly. With the 5% royalty stream auctioned for €60,000, the listing is set at an entry multiple of 7.00 over the last 12 months’ royalties, resulting in an expected yield for investors of 7.07%. The listing gives exposure to a remarkable growth opportunity, with a rebound in the main artists’ touring activity, as well as production of new tracks expected to deliver great results.

Marzio F. Schena, founder and CEO of ANote Music, says: “The music industry is enjoying a growth phase, as the increase in streaming has outpaced the decline in physical sales, with the sector expecting to double by 2030 to $131 billion from 2017 levels. These encouraging statistics, along with the universal appeal of music explains why the alternative asset class is becoming increasingly popular worldwide. Our partnership with El Editions has allowed us to expand our international reach and enter the French music market for the first time.”

Bertrand Louis, founder of El Editions, adds: “El Editions is honoured to be the first French catalogue listed on ANote Music’s platform. We are dedicated to nurturing talented French artists including the likes of Boulevard des Airs, Vianney, Elsie Reslinger and Maxime Manot. I am therefore delighted to offer music fans worldwide the chance to be a part of, and profit from the flourishing French music scene via ANote.”

Florent Dasque of Boulevard des Airs, comments: “As an artist, the ability to innovate whilst retaining independence is key. Through listing catalogues up for auction, ANote is offering artists such as myself new financial opportunities, allowing us to keep making music for our fans worldwide.”
