Sony Finalizes Acquisition of Michael Jackson Estate's Stake in Sony/ATV Publishing

The Sony Corp. has completed its acquisition of the Michael Jackson's estate share of Sony/ATV Music Publishing, giving it sole ownership of the music publishing powerhouse. The deal was first announced in March, but it took a while to close because the transaction had to be scrutinized by the EU Commission and because the Jackson estate needed to do some house cleaning in preparation for cashing out, sources say. While the press release announcing the closing said that Sony paid $750 million for the Jackson's estate 50% share in the company, Billboard estimates that the company's valuation was anywhere from $2.2 billion to $2.4 billion when debt and an earlier agreed upon discount-- for some other consideration previously given by Sony to the Jackson estate--are taken into account. 

Both Sony and the Jackson estate still have a stake in EMI Music Publishing, which they acquired when a consortium, including other investors, put together by Sony, acquired that publishing entity now administered by EMI. And of course, Sony still issues Jackson's music. Sony said the purchase is not expected to have a material impact on its forecasted financial results for the year ending March 31, 2017.
