Future announces intention to acquire TI Media
Zillah Byng-Thorne: “I truly believe that through our combined passion, determination and expertise that we will be a super-force of specialist media.”

This acquisition signals one of the most important moments in Future’s history, expanding its portfolio to more than 220 global brands and giving it the opportunity to lead some of the magazine world’s most iconic titles, says Future.

The acquisition of TI Media is consistent, says Future, with its ongoing strategy of expanding the company’s global reach. It introduces three new verticals to their consumer portfolio: Lifestyle, Women’s Interest and Sport, with titles such as Decanter, Wallpaper*, Country Life and Marie Claire UK.

By utilising Future’s SEO and tech expertise, Future says there’s great potential to scale TI Media’s brands both digitally and internationally. It also strengthens a number of Future’s existing verticals and further diversifies its audience with a large female readership.

Our CEO, Zillah Byng-Thorne, says: “Following a record-breaking year of huge organic growth at Future, I am delighted that we are now in a position to announce the proposed acquisition of TI Media. We have long admired TI Media, and I am thrilled at the prospect of bringing our exceptional teams together. I truly believe that through our combined passion, determination and expertise that we will be a super-force of specialist media.”
