The world's fourth-largest music publishing company just got a little bit bigger.
As a result, BMG now has access to Virgin's some 21,000 song catalog featuring Nirvana, Duffy, and Iggy Pop.
The deal is a result of Sony/ATV's earlier $2.2 billion purchase of EMI's publishing segment this summer
Though specific monetary details of the transaction haven't been revealed, it's thought the purchase is in the area of $90 million.
Back in September, The Hollywood Reporter reported Sony/ATV Music Publishing was auctioning off the rights to Virgin's music catalog for an estimated $150 million.SEE ALSO: The highest-grossing concert tours of the year >
