In May 2018 Sony Corporation announced it was acquiring a controlling stake (90%), subject to regulatory approval in the EMI Music Publishing Group, which it already owns 30%, the £1.7bn deal would make Sony the largest music publisher in the world, due to it already owning the rights to over 2 million compositions via its other music related companies. Sony Corporation subsequently acquired the small holding held by Estate of Michael Jackson in separate deal in August 2018. The complete takeover was approved by European regulators on October 26th, 2018, with the deal being completed by Sony Corporation in Nov 2018.
