Group One Holdings, backed by sovereign wealth fund Qatar Investment Authority (QIA), is planning an initial public offering (IPO) in the US, Bloomberg reported.

Earlier, the company had explored a listing via a blank-check firm, the news agency reported.

In December 2021, the company raised $150 million in equity financing, led by QIA and Guggenheim Investments, the global asset management and investment advisory division of Guggenheim Partners.

The new investment will support its global growth strategy, which includes diversifying its content offerings and expanding outside Asia.
