According to Reuters, who claims to have two anonymous sources, Corsair “is in advanced discussions” to be acquired by EagleTree Capital. They claim that the transaction, if it goes through in its current form, will be worth more than $500 million USD. EagleTree has several backers, including Goldman Sachs, Macquarie Group, and BNP Paribas.

From my perspective, this would be an interesting transaction. The company, being private, hasn’t published their finances recently, but annual revenue was as high as $455 million in 2011. Their catalog has since diversified heavily, especially with their seemingly successful power supply, case, and liquid cooling product lines. At first, the rumor felt a little high, because half-of-a-billion dollars is a lot of money, but they’re certainly selling a lot of stock. At the same time, they don't do a lot of their own production, but they do spend a lot of effort in their designs and making them fit a unique niche in one way or another.

Thanks to TechSpot for noticing this!

I can't believe that that's all corsair is worth as a awesome computer part company. They make all kinds of high end computer parts from clc water coolers to power supplies to memory to computer cases all of which are really top notch products which in term should make them worth way more than that. I agree I really hope they don't sell. I would be so sad to see the top notch corsair quality go away with this sale.

To be fair, Corsair doesn't actually make a lot of their products. They're made by third party vendors to varying degrees of specs provided by Corsair and then branded Corsair. For instance, my Corsair psu is actually made by season, but another in the same series is made by cwt.
