Music Streamers Reportedly Express Interest In SoundCloud Deal
Jul 3 17
A new phase of consolidation is about to hit streaming music services. The latest player to go on the block is SoundCloud Limited. SoundCloud is being eyed by a host of players, The Post has learned. Deezer S.A. is one of the suitors, sources said. Apple Inc. (NasdaqGS:AAPL) is again said to be in the mix as it eyes a free ad-supported bolt-on to its 20 million paid Apple Music, sources said. Apple’s Jimmy Iovine had previously been interested in SoundCloud Limited but some Cupertino insiders last week were talking down the prospect, calling it “fake news.” Of course, a number of private equity players are circling, industry sources said. While it’s unclear who among the buyout bigwigs in serious pursuit and who is casually kicking the tires, KKR & Co. L.P. (NYSE:KKR) is interested in the space. Spotify Limited is also said to be discussing a bid, according to sources close to the talks, while Google was said to be circling, as well. SoundCloud is being viewed as a key chess piece in the game to build a rival to the Big Four: Spotify, Apple, Amazon and YouTube. Of all the suitors, Deezer S.A. is said to be the most interested. “Deezer is making a serious run,” said a senior music source. “There will be a lot of consolidation, if you are Deezer or Spotify. SoundCloud’s massive user base — one that is melting as it grapples with a shrinking pile of cash — lets you convert,” into a much bigger player, said a source familiar with talks. SoundCloud declined to comment.
