Kobalt Announces Unprecedented Growth In Digital Royalty Earnings Through AMRA


“More money, faster” isn’t just a catchy slogan; it’s what we do here at Kobalt. That’s why we’re excited to announce today that, through AMRA, we collected 28% more money for our clients from Europe in Q3 2015 (AMRA’s first quarter administering Kobalt’s catalog in Europe). Specifically, we saw an uptick of 34% in YouTube publishing payouts, and a 26% increase in Spotify payouts in Europe.


Kobalt founder & CEO Willard Ahdritz had this to say about the historic quarter:

“I’m ecstatic to share these first results with our clients. This has been my vision since starting Kobalt, using technology and a new model to drive efficiency and transparency. And these initial numbers are just for Europe - wait until we see the explosive growth coming out of so many other untapped markets around the world. There have been too many missed opportunities for creators on a global scale – now the solution is here.”

Today’s news follows last year’s landmark announcement of the creation of AMRA, which is the first global, direct, digital mechanical and performing rights society.
