Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG)


Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) is the leading global music publisher, with more than 57 offices in 47 countries, including South Africa.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, UMPG has grown exponentially through both direct signings and catalogue acquisitions. UMPG is also the global leader in the areas of production music (through Universal Publishing Production Music), Christian/Gospel, and classical.

In 2007, UMPG acquired BMG Music Publishing, with over one million copyrights. The acquisition catapulted UMPG to the world's number one music publisher. 80% of the company's revenue comes from non Anglo-American repertoire and non-pop areas such as production music, making UMPG the most diverse and 'international' of all music publishers.
