Super D, based in Irvine, Calif., reportedly has revenues of nearly $195 million and Alliance Entertainment, based in Coral Springs, Fla., has revenues of nearly $725 million, which also makes the merged company the second largest wholesale with combined revenues of about $920 million, behind Anderson Merchandisers. By Billboard’s estimation, the new company will now have 6.64% market share in the U.S., behind iTunes 40.6%, Anderson’s 12.2% and Amazon’s 8.6% shares. Previously Alliance Entertainment was ranked No. 5 and Super D was ranked No. 11., but the merger will move them past the previous No. 4, Target, which had 5.48% market share in 2012.
