The partners sold the company to EMI Music Publishing (for a reported US$295 million), and launched SBK Records. It was distributed through the short-lived EMI Records Group North America, or ERG. In 1989, Daniel Glass joined SBK as Senior Vice President of Promotion. In 1990, Glass was promoted to Executive Vice President/General Manager. With the consolidation of SBK, Chrysalis, Wild Pitch and EMI Records USA several years later into EMI Records Group North America, he rose to President-CEO.
SBK Records was part of the EMI Group, but became dormant as of 2007, when Martin Bandier left EMI Publishing for Sony Corp.'s Sony/ATV Music Publishing. EMI was sold in 2012 to two different entities and split up.
