While the exact size of the investment has not been made public, Murray said the funds will enable the publisher to bolster its newsroom staff and invest in new technology and markets. The funds will also allow Fortune to bolster business divisions such as the Fortune Knowledge Group, a creative services division that had been folded into Time Inc. Fortune also plans to expand its lucrative events business, which it has begun to treat more like a memberships business, with customers paying big fees for a mixture of editorial content, marketing services, access to events and networking services.
Though he declined to offer many specifics, Murray said that Fortune aims to launch multiple paid offerings, at both consumer and professional price points, within the next year. Fortune has experimented with paywalls in the past, but it was unable to investigate them seriously over the past several years.
Some of these plans, such as moves into new markets in Asia, are more recent ideas. All of them are meant to further modernize an year-old brand that still draws substantial revenue from its print product.
