The Ins-and-Outs of Music Catalog Sales and the Behind-the-Scenes Players Advising Songwriters Who Cash Out

Partner and West Coast Music Practice Leader Mark Kaplan provided his insights in a Varietyarticle, "The Ins-and-Outs of Music Catalog Sales and the Behind-the-Scenes Players Advising Songwriters Who Cash Out."

Compared to most artist deals, catalog negotiations are “more intense because you’re talking about a bigger, more valuable long-term asset, so that’s going to involve more thought about intangibles as well as tangibles. You’re probably more likely to engage other levels of professionals, like maybe a valuation person or tax lawyers, because once again, it’s just the size of the deal," he said.

Citrin Cooperman's Valuation Advisory Services Practice has more than 20 years of experience valuing music catalogs - publishing and production, music ancillary services, and global entertainment enterprises.
