FROM: Rolf Schmidt-Holtz

TO: SONY BMG Employees

DATE: June 1, 2006

It is with regret that today I announce that Don Ienner and Michele Anthony have decided to resign from SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. Donnie and Michele have been the bedrock upon which Sony Music’s success has been built over the last 18 years and we are very appreciative of their important contributions during this period.

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Rob Stringer as President of the Sony Music Label Group reporting directly to me, effective September 1, 2006. I am delighted that Rob has agreed to join us in New York. Rob has been with Sony Music throughout his 20-year career and now is the perfect time for him to take on this senior role.

From now until September the label group will report to Tim Bowen, Chief Operating Officer, SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT.

For a good recap, read the NY Times article by Jeff Leeds or Chris Morris's article at the Hollywood Reporter.

For a good thread on the subject with plenty of anonymous candor, read this thread at The Velvet Rope.
