Don Lichterman, the Head of the Sunset Records Group says that "The staff at Sunset-Digital Entertainment has worked hard over the last year building this extensive catalog of live concert downloads. Our revenues in that medium alone have been the biggest boost in revenues over the past six months for Sunset-Digital division." Lichterman continues to say that "this is a unique division in the label structure and the reason why bands should offer live downloads at Sunset, is that from day one, they will generate revenues, making the risk of working unrecouped at the label, very minimal".
This is part of the reason why the company has never worked in deficits or on debt since starting the company last year. The Sunset-Digital Entertainment division has just posted increases in sales revenues of over 28% from the last quarter in 2005 to the 1st Quarter 2006. Those numbers are up 46% from last year at this time. Lichterman says that "we have not even scratched the surface as far as acquisitions."
