In 2010 IMRO revenue was €38 million.
Public Performance revenues (royalties arising from the public performance of copyright music in shops, bars, cinemas, hotels, office and live concerts) fell nine per cent (€1.4 million) to €13.5 million compared to 2010.
Despite this, the company “performed well” according to its Chief Executive Victor Finn who added that the fall in revenues was expected and could be attributed to the “continued difficulties faced by the hospitality, broadcasting and live music sectors”.
IMRO Chairman Keith Donald pointed out that, “The ongoing economic downturn continues to pose challenges for IMRO. In 2012 our focus will be to maintain 2011 revenue, continue a review of our licensing schemes, grow online revenue, enforce rights on behalf of our members via an effective office-based and on-the-ground presence and via a rigorous defence of members’ copyrights”.
