Samsung is acquiring Harman for approximately $8 billion

confirmed just yesterday that they are buying Harman International Industries. Harman is well-known for their car tech and premium audio systems. Here are the details.

The deal for Harman went official yesterday. Samsung agreed to pay approximately $8 billion for the acquisition. This sale caused a spike in Harman’s stock price, which is now valued over 25% higher than before the deal closed. At this point, you’re probably wondering, what will Samsung do with costly acquisition? We can’t be sure as to exactly what Samsung will do, as it remains early for making solid predictions. However, we can make some bold ones.

With the purchase of Harman International Industries, Samsung will own the rights to strategic business units like JBL, Harman Kardon, Mark Levinson, AKG, Lexicon, and Infinity coupled with a few others. These brands will be able to provide Samsung assistance in audio systems and car tech especially. This may just be the beginning to Samsung’s next push at the smart environment around us.
