Incipio buys Skullcandy

The globally recognised name in mobile phone cases, Incipio is buying the funky and affordable audio accessory brand, Skullcandy. Incipio recently announced its plans to acquire Skullcandy for $177 million (Dh650 million). Skullcandy is Incipio’s latest acquisition across tech accessory brands.

This purchase won’t affect the Skullcandy brand, says Incipio. It wouldn’t make much sense to tamper with a loved brand aesthetic. What we can definitely expect to see is Skullcandy’s penetration into more markets and a bolstered presence in existing markets. Incipio has a variety of licensing deals with premium brands such as Kate Spade and Tumi, so we could see higher-end versions of Skullcandy products as part of these brands. With Incipio’s large roster of products, we can also expect to see Skullcandy’s collaboration with other accessory brands.

Keep your eyes peeled for more from Skullcandy and it’ll definitely be better than before.
