Podcast production company Finyal Media has been acquired by the Jordanian podcast and media company Sowt.
Founded in 2019, Dubai based Finyal Media is a podcast network which creates content for young Arabs across MENA, through producing a range of popular Arabic fiction podcasts including 1001 Nights, Juha, The 40 Thieves and The Basement.
Based in Amman, Jordan, Sowt is a digital audio media company producing podcasts, audiobooks, and audio articles focusing on Arabic-speaking audiences. The financier of the acquisition, MDIF, invests in independent media around the world providing news, information, and debate.
The Bench advised Finyal Media in this acquisition with a team led by senior consultant Gerard Hobby (pictured).
