WHO OWNS GRACELAND? THE SALE OF GRACELAND
The house in Memphis, Tennessee, which is owned by Elvis' former wife Priscilla Presley and their daughter Lisa Marie Presley, is the second most visited private home in the United States, after the White House, with more than 600,000 visitors a year. The 14-acre property is said to be worth around 55 million dollars. It begs the question? Is Lisa Marie Presley ready to sell?

Graceland Hotel

Elvis Presley Enterprises has applied for a $57 million building permit for its planned 450-room hotel near Graceland. The planned 450-room Guest House at Graceland, the largest Memphis hotel project in decades, is scheduled to open in fall 2015.

The resort-style Guest House at Graceland, will include a grand stairwell connecting two floors in the lobby that harkens back to the main staircase at Graceland itself. The hotel, scheduled to open in fall 2015, also will include Jungle Room-inspired prints and accents, plus a sports bar and lounge that recalls the design of Graceland’s billiard room.

Other design touches include the separation of the hotel façade into three components to give it the feel of three separate residential-scale hotel buildings added over time.

 

Lisa Marie Presley GracelandAuthentic Brands Group has purchased Elvis Presley’s intellectual property from CORE Media Group.

The purchase gives Authentic Brands, also known as ABG, control of Elvis Presley Enterprises, which manages the licensing and merchandising rights to Presley’s image, name and likeness, in addition to a massive collection of music, photos, movies, television appearances and performance specials featuring the Elvis Presley.

Weinshanker, Authentic Brands and the Presley family will partner in operating Graceland.
A purchase price wasn’t disclosed. ABG is an intellectual property corporation in New York that manages brands, including those of Marilyn Monroe and Muhammad Ali.

“This is an exciting day for Elvis and his fans,” says, Priscilla Presley. “We look forward to working with the ABG team to further promote the legacy of Elvis. This is the opportunity the family has been envisioning to expand the Graceland experience and enhance Elvis’ image all over the world.”

In 2012, Elvis Presley Enterprises CEO Jack Soden said the licensing business generated about $32 million a year in revenue.

Even in death, there can only be one King. Reclaiming his top spot on the list is Elvis Presley, whose Estate generated $49 million in the past year. CKX Entertainment, the publicly traded firm which presides over the bulk of the Elvis empire (daughter Lisa Marie Presley retains a 15 percent stake) announced a massive overhaul of Graceland this summer, marking the 36th anniversary 2013 of the The King's death. Among the changes are a new hotel convention center, a state-of-the-art multimedia museum and visitor's center. The plans are paying off: Revenues from Graceland were up 15 percent this year, to $35 million. And that doesn't include royalties generated from Elvis music, DVDs and licensing deals like the one struck with Cirque du Soleil for an Elvis-themed revue in Las Vegas.

Each year, 600,000 people file through Graceland. Sillerman believes he can double that number. "So many people want to come to Graceland because they want to celebrate Elvis' life," Sillerman said. "Forty percent of visitors are unaccompanied kids under the age of 35"

CKX Entertainment, the publicly traded firm which presides over the bulk of the Elvis empire (daughter Lisa Marie Presley retains a 15 percent stake) announced a massive overhaul of Graceland this summer, marking the 30th anniversary of the The King's death.

And that doesn't include royalties generated from Elvis music, DVDs and licensing deals like the one struck with Cirque du Soleil for an Elvis-themed revue in Las Vegas.

Thirty years after his death, Elvis is still idolized. So what is that name worth now? To Bob Sillerman, who bought the king's name and likeness, it was worth $114 million. That's what his company, CKX, paid for Elvis Presley enterprises two years ago. Elvis' music was not part of the deal. he sold most of his hits back to his label before his death. but the family sold 85 percent of everything else and his ex-wife Priscilla Presley says it wasn't an easy decision. 

"Absolutely. I mean I'm not gonna lie. It's pretty frightening when, you know, you've been a private company for all these years," she added... "You know and you're the boss." 

But Priscilla and Lisa Marie, say the family business needed an investor to expand. And Sillerman was just the man to do it. "He just got it," she said. " You know there is no other company like his company." 

His company also owns the "American Idol' franchise, which Sillerman bought for $175 million. Then last year he added "the greatest of all time" to his roster of icons, buying rights to Muhammad Ali's name for another $50 million.  Now Sillerman plans to move the Graceland Plaza visitor center located opposite Graceland on the other side of Elvis Presley boulevard and relocated it  next to the Graceland mansion. The Heartbreak Hotel will be torn down to make way for two bigger hotels. In the entire complex that takes up 25 acres will grow to more than 100 acres.
