May 21, 2013

Author: Mike P.

Bonnier Corporation has sold TransWorld SKATEboarding, TransWorld SNOWboarding, TransWorld SURF, TransWorld Ride BMX and TransWorld Business to Grind Media, a division of Source Interlink Media. In exchange Bonnier has purchased nine different motorcycle publications from Source Media.

Grind Media is the parent company of Snowboarder, Surfer, Skateboarder, Surfing and many other reputable action sports publications. This recent acquisition will put grind Media at the forefront of these sports. The TransWorld Media team will remain in Carlsbad California. Financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

 In making this announcement, Chris Argentieri, President of Source Interlink Media (“SIM”) noted, “The TransWorld acquisition is the latest in a series of significant acquisitions SIM has made in the action sports space. As a result, along with continued organic growth, Grind Media has emerged as the clear leader serving this highly engaged and sought after audience. We are looking forward to developing our audience further, while leveraging Grind’s expanded reach to help our marketing partners deliver their brand’s message, in innovative and meaningful ways.”

 “The TransWorld brands demonstrated vision in how their audiences were changing the way they consumed content, and their efforts to adapt to these changes have provided valuable lessons for elsewhere within Bonnier,” said Dave Freygang, CEO of Bonnier Corporation. “We wish them all well with Grind Media.”

 Nothing has been released in regards to the future of the purchased publications aside from business as usual. Just to recap, Grind Media is now the owner of TransWorld SNOWboarding, Snowboader, TransWorld SURF, Surfer, Surfing, TransWorld SKATEboarding and Skateboarder. That is a lot of boarding.
