WALL STREET JOURNAL - Grindr is set to list on the New York Stock Exchange today, and the company plans to further monetize its services, review subscription prices and beef up its finance team once it joins the public markets via a merger with a special-purpose acquisition company. Grindr will combine with blank-check company Tiga Acquisition. The transaction, valued at $2.1B, is expected to provide Grindr with ~$384M in proceeds, which will bolster its balance sheet and help with paying down debt. The company will list on the New York Stock Exchange under a new name, Grindr Inc. During Q2, Grindr's revenue grew 34% YOY, to $46.6M. The company reported a net income loss of $4.3M in Q2 compared with a $1.8M profit in Q2 '21. The year-over-year loss was largely driven by one-time costs associated with going public, such as legal, consulting and audit fees. Q3 results haven't been released yet.
