“Rumours regarding Spotify’s initial public offering have been circulating for some time. The value of Spotify is a combination of its brand, technology, and its existing customer base but also, crucially, its right to access and stream content now, and in the future. As things stand with Spotify, there’s no guarantee of the latter.
“In order to look attractive to investors, it’s obviously trying to tie down long term license agreements with the big record companies, and if the IPO is to succeed, it will have to do that.
“At the moment, Spotify dominates paid streaming. However, its big competitors such as Apple Music and Amazon’s Prime Music are snapping at its heels.
“If Spotify can’t tie down its license deals and can’t attract the big names (for example, Frank Ocean’s new album, “Blonde” has just launched amid a lot of music industry hype, and is exclusive to Apple Music at the moment), it may struggle going forward.”
