NortonLifeLock (NASDAQ: NLOK), a global leader in Cyber Safety, today announced it has completed its previously announced acquisition of Avast.
“We believe that everyone deserves the freedom to live their digital lives to the fullest,” said Vincent Pilette, CEO of NortonLifeLock and the Combined Company. “Half a billion users trust us to protect and empower their digital lives, and now that NortonLifeLock and Avast have come together, we plan to redefine and reimagine Cyber Safety for consumers and small businesses around the world.”
The Combined Company will operate as NortonLifeLock Inc. and discuss its shared financials and metrics during the fiscal year 2023 second quarter earnings release call. As it starts merging its operations, the Combined Company will soon announce a new name that reflects the forward-thinking vision and scale of its comprehensive Cyber Safety platform and trust-based solutions for consumers around the world. It will also begin trading under a new stock ticker under the new company name on NASDAQ. Until that time, the Combined Company will operate as NortonLifeLock Inc. and continue trading on NASDAQ under its current “NLOK” ticker symbol.
