According to rumors, Apple is wanting to buy the German luxury television maker Loewe (makes me think of Lowes), which is said by a report that is unconfirmed by AppleInsider. The site is saying that Apple is offering them €87.3 million for this firm, which is a 48% premium coming from the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on Friday of Loewe’s.
Word of the negotiations was exclusively revealed to AppleInsider, and although the offer has yet to be accepted, a source claims that Loewe “has been advised by its financial advisor to accept the offer and a final decision is scheduled to be announced internally before 18 May 2012.”
Very thin, and “minimalist” TV’s is what Leowe’s makes and it seems to fit the fancy designs coming from the mastermind Jony Ive (the product designer from Apple). And this firm also makes speaker systems, which includes a speaker that is compatible with AirPlay, called AirSpeaker. And they also make a very nice application that controls the Loewe TV set through the iPad aswell.
The biggest shareholder of Loewe is Sharp, which is the exact same company that is being rumored to be the choice of Apple to form a partnership to be working together in March. It is said by AppleInsider that the decision on this buyout will be revealed internally by the very end of this week sometime.
