    KBS Corporate advise on sale of ESM Global

    ESM Global specialise in the development of optical fibre equipment, providing design and installation services to educational institutes and photonic companies across the globe.

    The Company has been established for over 20 years, amassing an impressive, global client base within this time. The projects undertaken by ESM include optical fibre drawing equipment, fibre rewinding machines, laboratory cleanrooms and gas scrubbing equipment.

    As the shareholders of ESM Global began to look towards their retirement plans, they instructed KBS Corporate with the sale of their business.

    Following a thorough research strategy by KBS Corporate, a range of interested parties came forward, which included both trade and investment buyers across the globe.

    Ultimately, a deal was agreed with Ifiber Optoelectronics Technology, a Beijing based specialist in the research, development and manufacture of optical fibre sensors.

    Ifiber Optoelectronics Technology also provide thermal detection systems, temperature measurement systems and other integrated services. The buyer is currently one of the leading providers of optical fibre technology in China, having built an established reputation and service since inception.

    Nathan Leah, Deal Executive at KBS Corporate advised on the deal and commented, ‘I have thoroughly enjoyed working on this deal from start to finish. I believe the deal will be very beneficial for Ifiber, allowing them to cement their position in China and to branch out into new and exciting directions. I wish nothing but the best for all involved and I would like to thank all parties for their co-operation throughout the process.’
