Sword, Rowe & Company Secures Launch Funding For Atlas Music Publishing

Bookmark and Share

Sword, Rowe & Company, a boutique investment bank focused on media, entertainment, technology and healthcare, advised on the launch and capitalization of Atlas Music Publishing, a new music publishing venture led by music executive Richard Stumpf. The firm was responsible for securing a substantial capital commitment from Virgo Investment Group and a select group of strategic investors. Managing Director Daniel Rowe served as financial advisor to Stumpf and Atlas Music Publishing.

"I think Richard has the experience and vision to create substantial value for both his songwriters and his investors."

Stumpf, a veteran music publisher, was most recently President of Imagem Music US and prior to that, SVP of Creative Services and Marketing at Cherry Lane Music Publishing. Throughout his career Stumpf has worked with artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, The Black Eyed Peas, John Legend, Quincy Jones, The Who, Sammy Hagar, John Denver, NSYNC, Willie Nelson and others. He sits on Boards for the National Music Publishers Association, American Association of Independent Music, Association of Independent Music Publishers, and The Recording Academy, for which he is a voting member. "After helping build two successful boutiques, I recognized that the time was right to launch my own writer-focused publisher," said Stumpf. "Given his background and passion for the space, Dan Rowe was the ideal banker to partner with."

Sword, Rowe & Company has legacy domain expertise in media, and specifically in music and original content. The Firm's past clients include Capital Cities / ABC, ATO Pictures and the Hearst Corporation. The music industry is of particular interest to Rowe, a musician himself, who has worked on both the creative and business sides of the music industry for almost two decades. "A decade of disruption has left the music industry ripe with opportunity," said Rowe. "I think Richard has the experience and vision to create substantial value for both his songwriters and his investors."

Of note, Sword, Rowe & Co. also participated as an investor and owns a small minority position in Atlas Music Publishing. The firm has been increasing its merchant banking and co-investing activity since its re-launch in October 2013.
