Gadgetmaker Logitech would have discussions to take over the American Plantronics. Sources let the Reuters news agency know that this would be “the biggest acquisition” of Logitech. The company would like to pay 2.2 billion dollars (1.9 billion euros) for the purchase of Plantronics.
It is not clear how far the discussions between the two companies have progressed. The initiates report that an agreement can be reached next week. The companies have not yet responded to the rumors of Reuters.
Logitech makes accessories in areas such as gaming, music and smart home solutions. The company paid 85 million dollars last year for the acquisition of Astro Gaming, to expand into the gaming sector.
Earlier this year, Logitech bought the American microphone manufacturer Blue Microphones for $ 117 million. Logitech already makes microphones for consumers, but with Blue the company would have the means to build more professional equipment.
Plantronics publishes communication systems, among other things. The company is also known for its (wireless) headsets.
