Music Division Acquisition & Transition Recap

News regarding the transition:
  • Given the recent developments in the Music division the office will become too big for the remainder of the group. As such we have notified the owner of the building now that the contract will be terminated as of January 1, 2018. We will use the rest of the year to look for other options, whereby the intention is to stay in Leiden.
  • Stationsweg 32 needs to be viewed and inspected the upcoming months. To minimize any inconvenience, fixed time slots are set. The time slots are 09:00-10:00, 13:00-14:00, 17:00-18:00 (Wednesdays and Fridays only).
  • The lease contract of Stationsweg 23B will be terminated as per April 26, 2017.
  • Maya and Joran left as per March 31, 2017.


Spring cleaning has started in the HU office last month! The fan-coils will also be cleaned before the airco season starts. Furthermore a new coffee machine has been purchased.

The Nespresso coffee machine has been repaired twice this month. The wrong combination of cups (flavors) and type of coffee (Ristretto, Espresso or Lungo) was the cause.
