Merging Forums.

I'm in discussions to purchase another forum within my niche.

It's around the same size however its older than mine and would obviously double my forum instantly upon merging.

SEO wise would the merge have a positive effect? Is there any negatives to merging the other forum into mine?

After merging it with your site, make sure the site you merged it with is offline and that you're 301 redirecting its web pages to your web pages (don't redirect everything to the domain).

If that site the person is selling to you is getting traffic from search engines and it's similar, it is a positive effect because you'll be getting the traffic.

After merging the forums, I may well be a good idea to merge any threads that are very similar.
