Company description

Warner Music Group Corp.'s history dates back to 1929, when Jack Warner, president of Warner Bros. Pictures, founded Music Publishers Holding Company. The company incorporated in Delaware and trades on the New York Stock Exchange. As one of the world's major music content companies, Warner Music Group is composed of two segments: recorded music and music publishing. The company's recorded music segment markets, sells and licenses recorded music in various physical (such as CDs, cassettes, LPs and DVDs) and digital (such as downloads and ringtones) formats. The segment also participates in image and brand rights associated with artists, including merchandising, sponsorships, touring and artist management. The music publishing segment owns and acquires rights to musical compositions, exploits and markets these compositions and receives royalties or fees for their use. The company also holds rights in more than 1 million copyrights from more than 65,000 songwriters and composers. Headquartered in New York City, Warner Music Group generates over half of its revenues in more than 50 countries outside the U.S.
