The acquisition resulted in Soft Bank Group and it’s subsidiaries owning all outstanding Fortress Investment Group shares. Fortress’s common stock was de-listed from the New York Stock Exchange due to the fact that Fortress’s future financial results are to be consolidated and reflected on Softbank’s financial statements. That being said Fortress is still allowed to operate as an independent company under the umbrella of Soft Bank whois committed to maintaining the leadership, personnel, business model, and brand which over a thousand clients, both corporate and private, worldwide have come to trust in for their investments.

Perhaps it is too early to tell but if Softbanks numbers from 2017 (after announcing their intent to buy Fortress) are any indication, Fortress Investment Group is a solid boone to the company’s ever growing portfolio.
