Tencent acquires 10% stake in Thailand's GMM Music for $70 million.


Earlier this week, Thai music platform GMM Music officially announced its latest development with Tencent, which invested $70 million to acquire a 10% stake in the company.

On Monday, Thai entertainment platform GMM Music announced that Tencent and its subsidiary Tencent Music Entertainment will acquire a 10% stake in the company for $70 million. This transaction marks a further implementation of GMM Music's spin-off plan.

Specifically, Tencent and its holding entity Tencent Music Entertainment will complete this acquisition through a combination of cash payment and a small shareholding in the music streaming app JOOX Thailand. This transaction gives GMM Music an overall valuation of $700 million, reflecting high market recognition of the company.

As early as July 2023, GMM Grammy, the parent company of GMM Music, had already approved a plan to spin off its music division and list it on the Stock Exchange of Thailand. This strategic move aims to further enhance the company's market competitiveness and capital operation capabilities.

This acquisition not only provides significant financial support to GMM Music but also helps the company make greater progress in business expansion and innovation. GMM Music stated that the funds will be used to drive the diversification of its business and the development of innovative projects, further enhancing the company's market influence and technological capabilities.

GMM Music CEO Phawit Chitrakorn noted in a statement: "The establishment of this partnership will provide a significant boost to our business expansion into new and larger markets. Particularly in China, a key target area with tremendous market potential, we believe that this collaboration will help us further develop and consolidate our market position."

Through this strategic collaboration, GMM Music will receive strong financial support and engage in deep cooperation with Tencent and Tencent Music Entertainment in technology, market expansion, and business innovation. In the future, GMM Music will leverage the advantages brought by this collaboration to further strengthen its competitiveness in the global music entertainment market.
