Logitech is acquiring Blue Microphones in a $117 million cash deal.
Blue, a former TWICE Picks Award winner, manufactures headphones and studio microphones.
Said Logitech CEO Bracken Darrell in a statement: “Logitech’s acquisition of Blue Microphones will accelerate our entry into a growing market, and offers another way for us to help bring people’s passions (from music to blogging) to life. Joining with Blue is an adjacent opportunity for us — a new way to grow — with additional synergies related to our existing gaming, PC webcam and audio categories. It’s exciting!”
All Blue employees and contractors will be brought into Logitech’s broader portfolio, a Logitech spokeswoman told TWICE, as will its brand. Blue will continue to be based in Westlake Village, Calif.
