Control4 Acquires Pakedge, Bolstering Home Networking Reach

During its earnings call today, Control4 revealed that it had acquired Pakedge Device & Software Inc., the supplier of advanced networking products and cloud network-management services, for approximately $32.7 million in cash. The deal was finalized on January 29, 2016.
