DiGiCo acquires Fourier Audio – plugging into innovating live sound

Friday 6th October, 2023

The Marriott Harrison team was delighted to advise longstanding client Audiotonix and their portfolio company DiGiCo on their acquisition of UK-based Fourier Audio.

Fourier Audio delivers live audio solutions with its team of software engineers and specialist sound designers, reinforcing an engineer’s ability to create seamless sounding performances. The acquisition will allow DiGiCo to enhance live sound innovation as Fourier Audio plans to present ‘Project Core’, a new platform bringing together the power of studio audio and software plug-ins to live engineers.

James Gordon, CEO at Audiotonix, commented: “We are always looking for the next audio innovators that are a good technology and cultural fit, and with Fourier I’m pleased to say we have found both. Bringing this talented team into the Audiotonix fold under DiGiCo will allow us to give live sound users access to a wider range of our own and other 3rd party developers’ plug-ins.  Working once again with our trusted team of advisors at Marriott Harrison, we were able to complete this acquisition very quickly and smoothly thanks to their pragmatic support and advice.”

James Barton, Director of Mergers and Acquisitions at Audiotonix, added: “The team at Marriott Harrison have now advised and supported us through a number of acquisitions and other projects over the last decade and more. For this transaction the key challenge was speed, with the deal being completed to a very tight six week deadline, which would not have been possible without the full commitment of the Marriott Harrison team.”

Jonathan Leigh-Hunt led the multi-disciplinary MH team which included Yasmin Barber (Corporate), Sofia Gottgens (Employment), Elisabetta Bestetti (Commercial), Michael Hansby (Tax) and Harry Peel (Real Estate).
