The acquisition will be accomplished through a combination of share-swaps and cash sales expected to be worth approximately $80 million. The deal will give Alliance ownership of Salter New Media's business-to-business properties and TheItch.com, as well as the Independent Film Channel – Salter's CRTC-licenced Category 1 DTV channel. The change in control of that property is subject to commission approval.
