Mishmash Média Acquires L’actualité.

Mishmash Média, member of the Mishmash experience collective, announces the acquisition of the magazine L’actualité, owned by Rogers Media since 1994. The magazine, a pillar in Quebec’s media landscape for over 40 years, will continue its mission which focuses on information, analysis and reflection.

In September 2016, the private equity firm XPND Capital announced the creation of the Mishmash collective—a group of businesses from the sectors of culture, media and entertainment, whose goal is to promote Quebec talent on a global scale. The acquisition of L’actualité, one of the world’s prominent French-language publications, is perfectly aligned with this vision. This transaction also forms a valuable complement to the activities of two businesses that are part of XPND Capital’s portfolio: Communication Voir (editor of the magazine Voir) and Média Boutique (an innovative media-oriented platform for the monetization of exchange contracts with advertisers). Gord Carley, Senior Associate with Grimes, McGovern & Associates/Canada represented Rogers Media in the sale.
