Supraphon entered by Bonton

Bonton became Supraphon’s ma­jority shareholder. The joint-stock company also owned the Albatros publishing house, Bonton Film, Bonton Music, Radio Bonton and other firms operating in the domain of culture. Recordings of popular music from the Supraphon archives started to be released by Bonton Music, while Supraphon would focus on classical music and spoken word. Bonton remained the proprietor of Supraphon until the autumn of 2008, when it sold its share in Sony Music / Bonton. Subsequently, Supraphon resumed the release of pop music recordings.
