Intent Media has taken over all assets, such as its giant mail and email databases, following purchase of the title from IT Publishing in Birmingham - a division of the media giant Trinity Mirror.
Total circulation of PC Retail will now be increased and editorial remit will be widened, providing the computer and IT channel with an unrivalled, high quality monthly trade publication stretching across both print and online.
"This deal makes PC Retail even stronger, becoming an essential read for everyone in the retailing and reselling business," commented Intent Media managing director Stuart Dinsey.
The last edition of CTO is published this week. Its subscribers will be added to PC Retail's circulation from the September issue.
