Avid to acquire M-Audio

Avid has entered into an agreement to acquire Midiman, also known as M-Audio, a provider of digital audio and MIDI solutions for electronic musicians and audio professionals.

Avid will pay approximately $80 million in cash, issue approximately two million shares of Avid common stock, and assume all outstanding M-Audio stock options. The deal also includes earn-out provisions, which would be payable to M-Audio's equity holders based on the successful achievement of certain financial milestones.

Under the terms of the agreement, M-Audio will become a business unit of Avid's Digidesign audio division and market its line of computer audio peripherals, PCI sound cards, keyboard controllers and control surfaces, microphones, speakers, and distributed software and proprietary sound libraries alongside Digidesign's digital audio workstations.
