Listed digital audio firm 7digital predicts 2020 profitability

“By combining our global catalogue with our cloud-based flexible technology platform, we continue to enable music industry innovators to reach new digital music consumers as well as target enterprise clients that want to better promote customer engagement and reduce churn through compelling music experiences.

“The Company continues to make a positive impact on powering streaming music opportunities in developed and emerging markets.

“This, together with a substantially improved financial position, healthy pipeline, client renewals, and rigorous operational management, gives me confidence that 7digital is well positioned to execute on our strategy and continue to lead the growth of music streaming.”
