Controversial Mogul Robert Sillerman's SFX Re-Acquisition: By the Numbers

Although the company has posted weak earnings since its IPO in late 2013, SFX owns popular brands -- Tomorrowland, Stereosonic, Electric Zoo -- as well as nightclubs and an EDM music store and streaming service, Beatport. With no signs of EDM slowing down, Sillerman can assemble the pieces without pressure from analysts and investors.
