"with an option for BMG to purchase the remaining interest in the company before the end of December 2001. On June 11, 2002 Zomba exercised this option" If BMG has the option, Zomba can't exercise it. If the option expired Dec 2001, it can't be exercised in June 2002. I suspect these are two different options. As worded this, is contradictory, thus the flag. GRBerry 22:39, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

New Page[edit]

I redid a history and structure of Zomba that I had started researching a while back. It ended up turning into this big project that tied in with some school work, so I decided to convert it into a wikipedia article. In doing so, I'm sure I left a lot of holes along the way, and possibly overemphasized some things, but this should be more than enough to start building upon, or tweaking and editing or whatever... I think the page should be renamed "Zomba Group of Companies" though, possibly with redirects for some of the common subsidiaries (Zomba Label Group, Zomba Music Publishers, Zomba Records, Zomba Recording Corporation).

According to Wikipedia:Article size this should probably be split up, but I wanted to get some input on that before attempting anything. Does anyone feel that any of those subsidiaries need their own page, that could thin out this one? I wasn't sure, so I plopped everything down here to see what others think first.

A note on categories: Zomba didn't have any record labels until 1981, so I changed the category to Record labels established in 1981. But I wonder if it should even be here at all since it is Jive that is the label, and Zomba is really a music company. Anyways, I used Companies established in 1975 as well, hopefully that (along with the actualy article) makes things clear.
