Acquisition by Hasbro

Entertainment One (and eOne Music with it) were acquired by US toy giant Hasbro in December 2019 in a $3.8 billion all-cash deal.

That acquisition saw eOne Music’s assets transfer to Hasbro’s ownership.

Those assets included Death Row Records, home to recordings from the likes of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Tupac Shakur.

Other eOne assets that moved under Hasbro ownership include Dualtone Music Group (home to The Lumineers’ catalog) and Last Gang Entertainment, in addition to controlling catalog recordings from Brandy, Wu Tang Clan, Chuck Berry and more.


Financials

In 2018, according to eOne’s annual report – prior to its Audio Network acquisition – eOne Music turned over £64.4 million ($78.7m).

That comprised just 6.8% of eOne’s company-wide total FY revenue of £941.2m ($1.15bn).Music Business Worldwide
