MUSIC BUSINESS: Tencent Group Buys 10% of Universal Music for $3.4 Billion

A consortium led by China’s Tencent Holdings Ltd. agreed to buy 10% of Universal Music Group from French media company Vivendi SA after months of talks.

The deal values the world’s biggest music company at 30 billion euros ($33.6 billion). Tencent and its partners can increase their stake to as much as 20% at the same valuation until Jan. 15, 2021, the companies said in statements on Tuesday.

With the Chinese social media and gaming giant now officially on board, other potential investors may look at Universal Music. That would energize a sale process that seemed to be dragging along since Vivendi first announced plans to sell as much as half the business in July 2018.

GOOD ARTICLE: Content Clashes and the #Netflix Effect: #Hollywood Lawyers Discuss the Decade Ahead

Several iPhone models ago, video industry giant Blockbuster refused to buy a fledgling DVD rental by mail company for $50 million. A decade later, there's one Blockbuster store left in existence and that startup is worth about $142 billion. Netflix has rocked Hollywood in ways most insiders couldn't have imagined at the start of the decade — but it's meteoric rise is certainly not the only thing to significantly impact the industry in the 2010s.

As the year and decade come to an end, The Hollywood Reporterer asked attorneys across various sectors of entertainment to weigh in on the most impactful events of the past decade and make predictions for the industry's next 10 years.

LUXURY HOSPITALITY: Endeavor Finalizes Deal For On Location Experiences, Co-Owned By NFL

Endeavor said it has acquired a majority equity ownership stake in On Location Experiences, the high-end experiential hospitality company. The deal, which has been in the works for a while, is thought to be for around $650 million-$700 million.

On Location, originally a part of the NFL, has been privately held since 2015 by RedBird Capital Partners, Bruin Sports Capital, the Carlyle Group and the NFL’s investment arm 32 Equity. The league will continue to be a minority shareholder and retain its seat on the board of directors. Veteran media exec Paul Caine, most recently chief revenue officer at Bloomberg, has been tapped as president.

OLE’s CEO John Collins will serve as an advisor to the company and Endeavor through an integration period, said Endeavor, which adds OLE to its roster of entertainment companies including talent agency WME, IMG and the UFC.

REST IN PEACE: Former NBA commissioner David Stern dies at 77

David Stern, the NBA commissioner during the most successful period in league history, has died, the league announced Wednesday. He was 77.

Stern died as a result of the brain hemorrhage he suffered three weeks ago. His wife, Dianne, and their family were with him at his bedside, the NBA said.

"For 22 years, I had a #courtside seat to watch David in action. He was a mentor and one of my dearest friends," NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement. "We spent countless hours in the office, at arenas and on planes wherever the game would take us. Like every NBA #legend, David had extraordinary talents, but with him it was always about the fundamentals -- preparation, attention to detail, and hard work.

"David took over the NBA in 1984 with the league at a crossroads. But over the course of 30 years as Commissioner, he ushered in the modern global NBA. He launched groundbreaking media and marketing partnerships, digital assets and social responsibility programs that have brought the game to billions of people around the world. Because of David, the NBA is a truly global brand, making him not only one of the greatest sports commissioners of all time but also one of the most influential business leaders of his generation.

SPORTS & APPAREL: Cleveland Cavaliers, StockX Team Up In Unique Partnership At Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse

The Cleveland Cavaliers and StockX, the world’s first “Stock Market of Things”, have teamed up to bring their online marketplace to the home and visiting locker rooms at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Players, coaches and team personnel will have the ability to browse and purchase sneakers, streetwear, watches and handbags on fully-functioning 55-inch iPhone PADZILLA from the StockX app.

Every user at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse will have the ability to scroll through the vast collection of authentic gear available to the public on the StockX app and also be able to login to make bids or purchases as well. This unique partnership between StockX and the Cavaliers is the first of its kind for any major sports league team.

“StockX is a member of our Family of Companies led by our Chairman Dan Gilbert,” said Nic Barlage, Cavaliers President of Business Operations. “Their platform was a concept that Dan and his visionary greatness envisioned based on the way he saw the ‘stock market of things’ evolving for the future. This is a very natural and organic partnership for many reasons, but foremost because of the connection within our Family of Companies.”

This partnership is just the latest example of Gilbert and the Cavaliers organization trying to make Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse more than just an arena for Cleveland to call home. This technical innovation is just another unique feature that makes the arena the gold standard not only in the United States, but across the globe as well. It also allows entities like StockX and the Cavaliers, a partnership Gilbert has a clearly vested interest in, to flourish and grow together.

MEDIA: Spotify Becomes Latest Tech Company To Hit Pause On Political Ads

Spotify announced that it will stop the sale of political ads on the streaming platform. The move follows similar decisions by other tech giants, including Twitter and Google.

The change will apply to the company's ad-supported music streaming service and its podcasts. As Ad Age reported, it will only affect the U.S. because it is the only country where the company has sold political ads previously.

This move by Spotify follows similar decisions by Twitter and Google ahead of the 2020 presidential election. In October, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced that the social media platform would halt political advertising worldwide.

In November, Google released its own updated policies around political ads, saying they would be allowed, but that advertisers would only be able to target to audiences using general categories of age, gender and postal code.

https://www.npr.org/2019/12/28/792078881/spotify-becomes-latest-tech-company-to-hit-on-pause-political-ads

Starting early 2020, the company says it will no longer sell paid political advertisements for its streaming service. The move follows similar decisions by Twitter and Google.

NEW COMPANY: Concord COO Glen Barros Exiting to Launch New Music Rights Venture

Glen Barros will exit his post as Concord's chief operating officer after 25 years with the company on Dec. 31 to form a new music rights business venture. Concord will name a new COO in the new year.

Barros' quarter-century history with Concord began in 1994, when at age of 28 he closed a deal to purchase the Concord Jazz label from its founder, Carl Jefferson, assuming the role of president/CEO when Jefferson passed away shortly after. Barros went on to grow the traditionally jazz-oriented label into Concord Music Group, which is now one of the largest independent music companies in the world, in part thanks to an aggressive acquisition strategy in recent years.

Concord's publishing division now represents such clients as Daft Punk, Mark Ronson, Pink Floyd and Denzel Curry, while on the recorded music side, it owns Fantasy Records, Fearless Records, Loma Vista Recordings and Rounder Records.

BEAUTY: L’Oreal Expands Virtual Try-On Service
L’Oréal is among several cosmetics companies turning to augmented reality and artificial intelligence to boost sales

L’Oréal SA is expanding its use of augmented reality and artificial intelligence, after virtual try-on services over the past year prompted customers to buy more makeup and hair color products, said Lubomira Rochet, the French cosmetic company’s chief digital officer.

The company’s U.S. subsidiary rolled out a service this week that lets shoppers use their phone’s camera to simulate various hair-color shades from L’Oréal products Garnier Nutrisse and Garnier Olia using augmented reality technology.

Using the Google Lens image-recognition mobile app, made by Google Inc., shoppers can point their phone cameras at the hair-color boxes to activate the virtual try-on service. The application identifies the product and color and then activates the virtual try-on service, powered by technology from ModiFace, a company that L’Oréal acquired in 2018 for an undisclosed amount.

Customers can use the feature anywhere the two Garnier products are sold, but 500 participating Walmart Inc. stores will have signs near the products demonstrating how the virtual try-on service can be used.
