Private equity firm EagleTree Capital is in advanced talks to buy popular peripheral and hardware-maker Corsair, sources have told Reuters.




On Thursday Reuters reported that two sources affirmed that EagleTree Capital, a private equity firm based in New York, has offered to purchase Corsair for more than $500 million. Four different financial institutions will help finance the acquisition, the sources said, including Goldman Sachs, Macquarie Group, BNP Paribas, and Societe Generale.


Corsair's range of products include peripherals and hardware aimed at the professional gaming segment, including cooling solutions, keyboards and mice, audio headsets, high-end PC cases, RAM, and a unique small form-factor PC called the Corsair One.
