With the news that Meredith Corp. (MDP) has made a $2.8 billion bet to acquire Time  (TIME)  in a deal backed by Koch Brothers, it's important to note that Time encompasses more than 100 different brands and publications. 

Meredith has agreed to pay $18.50 a share in cash when the deal is expected to close at some point in the first quarter. 

As the owner of Better Homes & Gardens, Meredith is no stranger to the neighborhood newsstand.
