The offering price and the company’s pre-money valuation of $9,000,000 was determined based on the best-estimates of the Company’s management, but not based on objective measures. We believe this valuation is reasonable for several reasons. We have tracked pre-money valuations for other entertainment companies that have raised capital under similar circumstances. We have a highly successful team that includes three music industry veterans (each having over 25 years of experience), as well as direct experience valuing and monetizing music royalty assets. Also, the global market for recorded music sales and licensing is growing materially each year, and is expected to more than double from its current level by 2030. Please be aware that the Company has not obtained any third-party valuations.
The Company is a record label that signs artists, releases singles, EP’s, albums, and videos, and then markets and promotes this content to help make it as successful as possible. From these deals, the Company earns royalties from digital streaming, public performance (e.g., radio, venue broadcast), sync and licensing opportunities (e.g., placement in ads, movies, series, etc.), and physical product sales. Additional revenue generation opportunities may exist from touring and merchandise sales (should the label provide support to help elevate this income), as well as from music publishing should SongVest Records establish a separate but related company to administer this function.
There are two ways you make money. First, investors will collectively earn periodic payments equivalent to 5% of SongVest Record's gross proceeds (these periodic payments are dependent on a successful offering). Secondly, investors collectively own up to a 10% equity stake in the company (your stake will be proportiate to this based on shares owned) that can be sold during a liquidity event.
