CommScope Launches Rebranding Following Privatization

CommScope introduced a new corporate identity and branding. The move follows the recent privatization by The Carlyle Group, which acquired all of the outstanding shares of CommScope for $31.50 per share in cash -- a transaction valued at approximately $3.9 billion.

CommScope, which is based in Hickory, North Carolina, began as a small provider of cabling to the nascent cable TV market in the 1970s. It is now a multi-billion dollar, global infrastructure leader with solutions for wireless, wireline, enterprise and cable television networks.

The brand makeover is the first for CommScope since the mid-1990s and follows the acquisitions of Avaya's Connectivity Solutions division in 2003 and Andrew Corporation in 2007.

CommScope said its new logo portrays a more dynamic company with a contemporary look and feel and a more structured hierarchy of product and solution brands serving the telecom carrier, cable television, business enterprise and government markets.
