Shock Records And Koch Renew Licensing Deal

Shock Records has renewed its exclusive licensing deal with KOCH Entertainment for Australia and New Zealand, which is a continuation of a previous successful arrangement that has existed for the past three years.

The deal is a collaboration between two of the world's more aggressive independent companies. Shock Records is Australia's #1 independent music company, representing the cream of the world's independent labels in the Australian and New Zealand markets. From product marketed to niche markets to mainstream chart success (Shock recently had 5 of the top 40 singles in Australia in one week). Shock has established itself as a true force in the Australian and New Zealand markets while maintaining 100% independence and its original Australian ownership.

Bob Frank, President of KOCH Entertainment says, "Shock is a perfect partner for KOCH. We look forward to continuing the success we have had with them over the past 3 years."

Charles Caldas, President of Shock says, "All of us at Shock are very pleased that we will be working with KOCH in the long term. Koch have quickly emerged as the USA's #1 independent music company and we are sure that the combination of Shock's expertise in our markets with KOCH'S aggressive A&R will see the success we have already enjoyed continue to develop. We look forward to making KOCH a key label in the Australian market."
