Blue Microphones has been acquired by Logitech International S.A.

The Riverside Company has sold Blue Microphones to Logitech International S.A. for US$117 million. Purchase price does not include working capital adjustment.

Blue Microphones designs, markets and manufactures external digital microphones for consumers and professionals. The company’s microphones are used by content creators, streamers and musicians for recording and streaming podcasts, videos, music, and PC gaming (on platforms like Twitch). Blue’s products are sold through premier brick and mortar and online retailers, which include Amazon, Best Buy and Guitar Center, among others. The company originally established its reputation as one of the premier professional studio microphone brands for recording musicians and has successfully leveraged that professional credibility to the consumer market, which currently accounts for approximately 90% of its sales. The firm’s consumer microphone product portfolio includes products ranging in price from US$40–250. Blue Microphones has developed patented technology, trademarks and trade secrets which differentiate its products from the competition.

Focused on innovation and quality, Logitech designs personal peripherals to help people enjoy a better experience with the digital world. The company started in 1981 with mice, which (new at the time) provided a more intuitive way of interacting with a personal computer. Logitech became the worldwide leader in computer mice, and has reinvented the mouse in dozens of ways to match the evolving needs of PC and laptop users.

The Riverside Company is a global private equity firm focused on investing in growing enterprises valued at up to US$400 million. Since its founding in 1988, Riverside has invested in more than 550 transactions. The firm’s international portfolio includes more than 80 companies.
