The company recently announced plans to divest non-core assets

CUI Global Inc (NASDAQ:CUI) reported strong results from its fiscal third quarter, which saw the energy company execute on its transformational strategy to divest non-core assets.

In late September the Oregon-based company announced plans to sell its electromechanical business to a private entity.

The sale of the electromechanical business coupled with new CEO Jim O’Neil is part of the company’s strategy to reshape the company into a diversified energy infrastructure services provider to the North American energy market through aggressive acquisitions.

Earlier this week, CUI Global announced plans to sell the majority of its power business to electrical connector manufacturer Bel Fuse Inc (NASDAQ:BELFA) in a $32 million dollar deal.

"Our third-quarter results reflect continued strength in our engineering and integration services in North America that offset lower revenue from our U.K. operations due to the continued headwinds associated with Brexit," said William Clough, executive chairman of CUI Global.

"With these transactions, we move forward with a recast balance sheet and the financial resources to support the company's Energy-centric growth strategy with Jim O'Neil as CEO."

O’Neil told investors in a statement that secular trends in the oil and natural gas, electric power and telecommunications industries have created a “sustained market opportunity” for CUI Global.

“With the divestiture of the majority Power and Electromechanical segment, we turn our full attention to executing on our strategy to diversify our Energy business into the infrastructure services market and build a recurring revenue and earnings stream through acquisitions and organic growth,” O’Neil said.
