Rumors that all three members of the Taiwanese girl group S.H.E were to leave HIM International Music after their contracts expired last Sunday have become a reality, the record company confirmed last Tuesday, stressing that it is still in negotiations with them about the possibility of future cooperation.

The group S.H.E, which burst onto the scene in 2001, is one of the most popular girl groups in not only Taiwan but also China and Southeast Asia. In July, member Ella Chen revealed her plans to leave the company to set up a management agency with her husband. The label confirmed that Selina Jen and Hebe Tien, the other two members, were also to establish their own agencies.

To persuade the three to stay, the label spent NT$30 million (US$973,000) recently on a concert celebrating their 17th anniversary. On news that it was about to lose its “golden goose,” shares of the label tumbled by 10 percent, the daily maximum, or more than NT$500 million, the day after it was confirmed.
