Royalty Exchange is an online marketplace that connects buyers with sellers of royalty assets. We don’t conduct backroom deals or broker private transactions. Our commitment to open markets ensures all sellers know they’re getting the best value that the market can support.
Each Royalty Exchange auction consists of a single asset made available to multiple bidders. All bids are public, and bids are accepted for the entire asset only. Each auction has only one winner, and the winning bid is a binding, legal contract with the seller to acquire the entire asset.
For each auction:
Here’s a more detailed breakdown of the process…
Royalty Exchange can facilitate sales of all types of music royalty streams, from public performance, to sync, to mechanical, recording copyrights, and more. You can choose to sell in any increment you choose, be it 100% rights to a single song or catalog, to a percentage of only the sync or performance rights, or any combination you like.
To list your royalty stream on Royalty Exchange, you will need to provide the following information:
After we review this data and verify your royalty stream, we will discuss the following questions:
The starting price and minimum bid amount are determined by you. We want to give you complete control of your listing, as well as provide your auction with the best possible probability of success.
Before we place a royalty up for auction, we need to complete a Listing Agreement.
Once the listing agreement is finalized, our team of Account Managers will gather any remaining due diligence information from you and create a listing for your auction which you can review and approve before we publish it live on our site.
Once the above steps are complete, we then alert our network of over 17,000 registered investors that your listing is available and accepting opening bids. New listings are also promoted across social media and, on occasion, with press.
Initially, the auction will be listed in “accepting opening bids” status until a verified bidder places a bid at the starting price. Once the starting price is met, the auction will become “live” and countdown clock will begin. Most auctions will run for less than one week.
Royalty Exchange uses the “Five-Minute Rule” for auctions, meaning if a bid is placed in the final five minutes of an auction, the listing will stay open for an additional five minutes. There is no limit to the number of times an auction can be extended. When the auction has officially come to a close, the listing will indicate "Auction Closed."
