REVENUE UP 11 PERCENT THROUGH Q3: For the first nine months of 2018, UMPG revenue was up 11 percent in constant currency. "Our administration team fights to collect every dollar, and our creative team signs -- and re-signs -- the best artists," says Cimino. Case in point: Tierra Whack and Billie Eilish were among 2018's signings; notable re-signings included Elton John, Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Halsey and Post Malone.
