[RC]PC gaming hardware maker Corsair Components sets terms for $78 million US IPO - Page 2

post #11 of 40
As long as they keep doing what their doing and making great products. it dont care if they land a man on the mars or run for president.
Money and Power corrupts, I hope it doesn't happen to my fave company.
But it shouldn't change the company to much if any at all.

Corsair does make solid products (looks at PSU, Cooler, SSD and flashdrive).

I just hope that they can land a contract in a big box store and get quality into the hands of regular folk.

Corsair makes none of the things you listed.

They buy, rebrand, and sell them.

Corsair is a good company; not disputing that. Just wanted to point that out.

i'd personally buy their stock just to support such a customer-friendly company, but as far as economics goes, i don't think they have room to expand. corsair is, and will always be, an enthusiast/build-it-yourself brand, and i don't see them breaking into the mainstream any time soon.

That is not quite true... being a public traded company that are required to issue more reports and investors push for shorter term returns.

Companies do change how they behave after going public.

Corsair does supply R&D...

Their SSDs, PSUs, audio products, and watercooling line are modified from base designs.

Their cases, KB, and mice are original designs.

I don't get why people that a company will lose it's service integrity when it goes public? Could people give examples of companies that have gone afloat and their service quality has diminished? I really would like examples of these.

It will ASAP. When their IPO drops the institutional investment types will be all over the BOD creation/selection process unless the current owners are retaining all or most voting rights.

I could provide bunches, but what's more relevant than going public is how much control the people that built the company maintain, and I didn't see anything in the source about maintaining rights within current management. Time will tell.
