I agree with Matt, the story was a little thin on several points. A couple more sentences, they could have cleared it up. There is a contract in place but, the deal is not closed yet as there is still due diligence to be done. Should be good for PB as Bonnier owns over 50 magazines and websites.

And with that said - looking forward to the future prospects of PBM.
I heard Hustler bought Fountain...
