A look to the future
In November 2010 Oakley Capital Investments Limited acquired 50 per cent of Time Out London. In May 2011 Oakley Capital made a further Investment in Time Out New York with the aim of creating a global digital media group.
In April 2013, Time Out Chicago was acquired by Time Out Group's US affiliates to become part of the owned and operated portfolio, joining London, New York, Paris and Los Angeles. This acquisition means that, along with New York and Los Angeles, Time Out is now in the three largest markets in the United States.
Since June 2016, Time Out Group is listed on London's AIM stock exchanges, trading under the ticker symbol 'TMO'.
