MLT Aikins represents Curiocity Group in recent transaction

MLT Aikins is pleased to have represented the founders of Curiocity Group Inc., a leading digital media publisher in Canada, (“Curiocity”) in their sale to ZoomerMedia Limited (TSXV: ZUM) (“ZoomerMedia”).

Calgary-based lawyers John A. Brigidear, Mark Mielke and Reagan Munro represented Curiocity and its founders in the sale transaction.

Curiocity is one of Canada’s leading digital media publishers focused on national and local lifestyle content with a presence in Calgary, Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Seattle. Curiocity has nearly 4 million daily readers who consume its up-to-the-minute food and drinks, experiences, deals and adventures content.

An aggregate purchase price of $5 million was paid in cash on closing by ZoomerMedia.

“From day one, our focus has been on building a business, a brand and a model that can go beyond just the two of us and our small, but accomplished, teams. ZoomerMedia’s guidance and large and robust sales force will enable Curiocity to scale to new heights that would otherwise be impossible to achieve independently. We’re excited about what the future holds for Curiocity and look forward to growing our monthly content views, already at over 250 million, across all platforms including the coveted Meta where we remain available for business,” said Mark Montanini and Lisa Briscoe, Curiocity’s founding siblings.
