Positive expectations for 2019 set the tone for 2020!

The 2020 budget was adopted by the Supervisory Board in December 2019 based in part on our latest expectations for the financial year 2019: copyright royalties collected and distributions above budget, lower operational expenses and investment results well above the standard return. Compared to the 2019 budget, Buma/Stemra expects to collect €9.7 million more copyright royalties in 2020 and to distribute €11.1 million more to rights owners. Read more about the budget 2020.

Buma/Stemra looks back on a good first half of 2019.* Copyright royalties are increasing in almost all market segments and the management costs are under control. The investment results are very positive and more than offset the negative results for 2018. These achievements provide a good basis for the remainder of the financial year.
