"We are pleased to return a portion of the proceeds from the recent divestitures of non-core assets to shareholders in alignment with our continuing efforts to enhance shareholder value," said William J. Clough, executive chairman.

On Tuesday, CUI Global revealed it had completed the sale of the majority of its power business to electrical connector manufacturer Bel Fuse Inc (NASDAQ:BELFB) for $32 million in cash.

The proceeds are expected to be used on CUI's strategy to build an infrastructure services company and for general corporate purposes.

The sale came from the group's Power & Electromechanical (P&EM) segment.

The decision was part of a larger shift by CUI to transform the structure of its company.

In October, the firm announced the sale of its electromechanical business for US$15 million, which also came out of the P&EM segment.
