CommScope has completed the acquisition deal of ARRIS International which the companies signed in November 2018.

The acquisition worth approximately $7.4 billion in cash, brings together two companies with a unique set of complementary assets and capabilities that are expected to enable end-to-end communications infrastructure and connectivity solutions, something that neither company could achieve on its own. The combination of the companies, which includes Ruckus Networks, is expected to create new opportunities across multiple markets, while increasing the companies’ relevance and importance with existing networking customers.

As previously announced, The Carlyle Group, a global alternative asset manager, has reestablished an ownership position in CommScope through a $1 billion minority equity investment as part of CommScope’s financing of the transaction.

Eddie Edwards, President and CEO, CommScope
We are focused on ensuring CommScope, with the fully integrated ARRIS and Ruckus businesses, is at its best financially, operationally and competitively. We are confident in our ability to solidify our leadership positions in the markets we serve and capitalize on opportunities in new markets.
