El lado oscuro de la adquisición: Apple “despedirá” a 200 empleados de Beats
There, it’s all closed. After the European Commission approved the takeover a few days ago, the body of the same name in the United States has now also done so. And with that, Apple’s purchase of Beats is now complete . The company has published an official message on its website to reflect the news:
Beats has done the same on his website:
Another consequence we see today is the closure of the Beats Electronics store . We can still browse the catalogue of products offered by the company, but instead of being able to buy them directly we will find a link to the Apple Store online. We can still buy Beats headsets from other stores, of course, but now the official sales channel is Apple.
And the last detail: Vivendi , a French company of Universal Music Group, has sold its 13% share of Beats to Apple for $404 million. And with this, it seems that all the pieces of the acquisition are already in place. Now we just have to be patient and wait for the news that Beats and Apple will launch together, and thank you very much to all of you who have warned us!
