They are having a tough time keeping this a secret. Rumors going around that Disney has interest. Other rumored buyer is Technicolor. Been there 15 plus years, may be time to get out.

Is a rumor really worth messing with people's lives and scareing them? They are people that have families and this is their security. Some rumor on here can have terrible consequences for them. Please know what you are putting out there before you post. It can destroy a lot of lives.

Anderson Merchandisers Acquires Sony DADC

Sarah Skates • February 16, 2012
Anderson Merchandisers has acquired physical music distribution rights from Sony DADC. The purchase means the vast majority of physical music sold in America will soon reach customers through Anderson.

Sony DADC currently ships all Universal Music, Sony Music Entertainment and EMI CDs to U.S. wholesalers and retailers.

Anderson is already the country’s largest music wholesaler, supplying Walmart Stores, Sam’s Clubs, Best Buy, and the Army and Air Force Exchange Service.

Anderson Merchandisers sees a future for CDs, as long as they are affordable. CEO Charlie Anderson notes,“It takes a combination of factors, including making the music available at a price people find attractive. Obviously a more efficient, cost-effective distribution system helps accomplish that.”

The purchase of Sony DADC will enable the industry to streamline cost through Anderson’s “one box” shipment system which allows retailers to receive a single shipment of music from multiple labels.

A privately held company, Anderson Merchandisers, L.P. is an affiliate of Anderson Media, headquartered in Knoxville, TN, and established in 1917. The company has more than 5,800 associates across all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and Canada.

The rumor mill at Sony is incredible. For one, there are people that just love to stir up trouble. However, it's also incredible how often the products of this mill tend to become reality.

It wouldn't surprise me if DADC was spun off to another company. With Sony being in such financial trouble, I could see them liquidating their profitable assets to keep the big Sony boat afloat. DADC is a money maker....for now. The demand for physical media is shrinking and will eventually shrink down to the level where a company like DADC will nolonger survive.

I'm so happy to be working somewhere else. Goodbye to rediculous cronyism and blatent favoritism.
