SiriusXM Invests $75 Million In SoundCloud

SiriusXM Holdings Inc. has purchased a minority stake in SoundCloud, investing $75 million into the audio platform and received two seats on its now expanded board. SoundCloud will use the additional investment to accelerate its product development and enhance services. "SoundCloud's unique platform serves a vital role in today's music ecosystem where new artists are discovered and build their fan base, and established artists experiment and connect directly with their fans in highly effective ways," says SiriusXM CEO Jim Meyer. "We believe this is another opportunity to continue creating value for SiriusXM stockholders by investing in expanding digital audio platforms." See the complete statement here.
