In 2015, SUISA posted higher revenues from royalty collections than in the preceding year. Copyright earnings from domestic and international business totalled CHF 142.7 million, an increase of 1% over the previous year. The result was due largely to increased revenues from concerts and broadcasting. Of these revenues, SUISA allocates CHF 125 million to composers, lyricists and publishers of music in Switzerland and abroad. Thus, about 88 of every 100 francs taken goes to the rights-holders. With these strong annual earnings, the cooperative society ensures that music professionals are compensated fairly for use of their work.
