Recent Financial Numbers Pushed Turtle Beach Shares Higher
Turtle Beach Corp, the leading gaming headset and audio accessory brand, generated year-over-year revenue growth of 185% in the first quarter, supported by the increase in its market share along with higher volumes from high-performing game releases.
The company claims the successes of Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds have attracted new gamers into the market – which has generated a strong demand for its headsets.

Full-year revenue outlook is likely to stand in the range of $205 million, substantially higher than previous estimates for $149 million. Overall, Turtle Beach Corp has been experiencing a strong demand for its gaming headset and audio accessory products – which would most likely continue to contribute to its share price performance.
