LiveXMedia Becomes A 'Belieber,' Launching NFTs: What Investors Should Know

A small cap music company seeing record growth announced a partnership with one of the leading names in the industry on Friday.

What Happened: Justin Bieber is a bestselling musician with more than 75 billion career streams and 70 million albums sold. Bieber is the No. 1 artist on YouTube, owned by Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)(NASDAQ:GOOGL), with 60 million subscribers and has over 65 million monthly listeners on Spotify Technology SA (NYSE:SPOT).

Livexlive Media Inc (NASDAQ:LIVX) and iHeartMedia Inc (NASDAQ:IHRT) are hosting an album release party for Bieber’s sixth studio album, “Justice,” on March 25.

The event will feature never-before-heard interviews, fan questions and music from the album. LiveXLive will stream the event live. iHeartMedia will stream audio of the event on its pop, hot adult contemporary and rhythm stations.

The album from Def Jam Records features chart-topping hits like “Holy,” “Lonely,” “Anyone,” and “Hold On.” Tracks from the album have been streamed over two billion times globally already.

Why It’s Important: LiveXLive Media, which presented at a recent Benzinga Small Cap Conference, is targeting super fans who want to listen to their favorite artists and attend livestreaming performances.

LiveXLive recently reported third-quarter revenue of $19.1 million, a 96.9% year-over-year increase. The company’s nine-month revenue total of $44.2 million is up 53.5% year-over-year. The third quarter marked the 11th consecutive quarter of record revenue for the company.

LiveXLive is guiding for full fiscal 2021 revenue to come in a range of $64 million to $69.5 million. The company issued fiscal 2022 guidance in a range of $90 million to $100 million.

More than 100 artists will participate in the event featuring over 50 hours of nonstop music. The 2020 streaming festival had more than 50 million views from fans.

The festival will have the first-ever NFT music festival poster according to the company. It was created by its Custom Personalized Solutions brand.

Investors should watch to see if this leads to additional NFT offerings from the company’s livestreaming events.
