EMI Group Overview

EMI Group is the last member of the Big Four. It has had troubles lately with its private equity owner Terra Firma, which has been trying to pull back its involvement in the firm.

EMI has been in merger talks with Sony for years now. The recent developments with Terra Firma have reopened the door for these talks, which would effectively reduce "the Big Four" to "the Big Three."

My take: Boy, do I hope this doesn't happen. All this work just for this site to become outdated in a matter of days. Don't do it, EMI!
