According to Turtle Beach, it recently more than doubled its total addressable market (TAM) to $4.1B with the acquisition of German PC gaming accessory maker ROCCAT. Subsequently, a significant rise in PC accessories sales is attributed to its Atlas line and the addition of the ROCCAT portfolio.
The incremental ROCCAT operating and acquisition integration costs, as well as digital marketing and sponsorship initiatives, have been pointed out as the primary cause of Turtle Beach’s operating costs increase, which were up by $3.6M to $17.6M for the period. ROCCAT’s purchase price of $12.7M was funded with cash and borrowings under revolver.
Overall, the company generated a net loss of $3.1M or $0.22 loss per share compared to a net income of $14.9M in Q3 2018.
Furthermore, Turtle Beach authorized a share repurchase program of up to $15M. Since the share repurchase program was announced on Apr. 10, 2019, approximately 206K shares have been repurchased for $1.9M at an average price of $9.43 per share.
