When narrowing down the focus on quarterly and monthly performance, we observe growth spread throughout the year and interesting trends in terms of royalty payouts distribution. For 11 out of 12 months, ANote Music has distributed more royalties than the previous year, with peak highlight months like April 2023, May 2023, July 2023, and October 2023, where royalties distributed marked remarkable year-over-year growth (from 6x to 9x times the 2022 amounts). As an example, in the month of August 2023 alone we paid a total of €39,739.77 which is more than the entire amount we distributed previous year during the entire third quarter of 2022. 

On a quarterly basis, ANote Music has experienced yearly growth in the amount of royalties distributed during every quarter, from a minimum of €49,699.62 distributed in Q2 2023 to a maximum of €166,394.88 distributed in Q4 2023.
