Francisco Partners, a global investment firm specializing in technology businesses, has made a strategic investment of $100 million in NZXT, a provider of PC gaming hardware and services.
The investment is intended to enable NZXT to bring on additional senior talent, expand its product offerings into new hardware categories, expand its D2C offering, invest more in the community and continue building its brand. Along with Francisco, a group of top leaders and entrepreneurs across multiple sectors will join as strategic investors.
“Francisco Partners’ track record and expertise helping successful technology companies take their growth to the next level made them the ideal partner for us,” added Johnny Hou, NZXT CEO. “We look forward to working closely with their team as they not only understand the challenges we face and where our priorities are, but most importantly, they are as committed to our community as we are.”
“As NZXT enters this next phase of growth, we are excited to partner with Johnny and the entire team to help them scale the business and expand into new products built to serve the needs of gamers across the world,” stated Alan Ni, consumer internet investing at Francisco Partners.
