Turtle Beach köper upp konkurrenten Roccat

Amerikanska Turtle Beach låter meddela att det nu står klart att de ska köpa upp tillbehörstillverkaren Roccat för $14,8 miljoner (runt 140 miljoner kronor). Sammanslagningen av företagen väntas vara klar efter andra kvartalet då Roccat-tillskottet beräknas ge Turtle Beach intäkter på mellan $20-$24 miljoner. Turtle Beach-bossen Juergen Stark kommenterar affären:

"This is a dynamic and strategically important deal for Turtle Beach. We are adding a complementary portfolio of PC gaming mice and keyboards, a skilled PC accessories team, and a highly synergistic distribution footprint.

The acquisition is also a key step in achieving our goal of building a $100 million PC gaming accessories business in the coming years. Roccat accelerates our expansion into the roughly $1.6 billion PC gaming headset market, as well as directly enables us to address the roughly $1.3 billion PC gaming keyboard and mice market. We believe our combined product portfolio is one of the strongest in the industry, covering gaming headsets for consoles and PC's, gaming keyboards and mice. Together we will have 48 core product models to pursue the total addressable market of over $4.7 billion in North America, Europe and Asia."

Även Roccat-chefen, René Korte, kommenterade denna storaffär i pressreleasen:

"We've long admired how Turtle Beach's pioneering headsets have elevated gaming and it is an honor to join forces and bring our great products to more gamers. I have no doubt that combining Roccat's strength in the PC peripherals market with Turtle Beach's 45 years of experience, impressive technology, console dominance, and strong brand will bring even more victories to gamers around the world."
