According to the global media company, the business combination between Forbes and Magnum Opus is expected to close in the first quarter of this year.

Upon closing the merger deal, Forbes is expected to get listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and trade under the stock symbol FRBS.

Forbes is looking to go public to capitalize on its digital transformation. The company wants to use technology and data-driven insights to engage its audience.

Those interested in getting hold of the FRBS stock could wait for the company to go public in the US equities market.

Bottom line

It appears that investors have been sceptical of initial public offering (IPO) and SPAC mergers since the beginning of this year. Some companies even delayed their IPO plans as uncertainty over interest rate hikes loomed over the market.

According to reports, Binance is replacing half of the US$ 400 million in the SPAC merger deal commitments. The strategic investment could make Binance one of the top owners of Forbes.

Forbes is one of the leading media companies in the world, and it was founded by the grandfather of Steve Forbes, who is the editor-in-chief and two-time presidential candidate of the United States.

In 2014, the global media company reportedly sold a 95 per cent stake to Whale Media, a Hong Kong-based company.
