How Much Would You Pay for Linksys (the Business)?

By December 17, 2012

Follow me on:

To most people, "buying Linksys" means choosing some model of their home networking equipment to purchase. News reports are indicating, though, that Cisco Systems is now looking to sell off the entire Linksys business. Cisco paid USD $500 million to acquire Linksys in 2003. Since then, the company has continued to sell network gear under that name (the more recent products called "Linksys by Cisco") despite some plans to do away with the Linksys brand going back five years or more.

Trade rumors suggest Belkin is in the running to acquire Linksys. Opinions vary of how good a job the company did in building or maintaining this brand, but few expect it will sell for $500 million again this time. If you were Belkin or another prospective buyer, how much would you pay?

Update: The price is not yet disclosed, but on January 25th Belkin confirms it's intent to buy Linksys.

The Turbo T4RC features a wireless, four-way remote control
that it is possible to use to scrub any area that
needs extra attention. Moreover natural deodorizing products don’t discolor the material or leave any stain around the furniture. The first step is usually to get the fleas out of your respective house. Of course, you could work with a professional to appear in, impose a fee an arm along with a leg, and make use of chemicals on your own bedroom, or else you could perform the job yourself. Without the skills these people the world as we know it might soon arrived at the screeching halt.
