RF Industries Announces Sale of its RF Neulink Division
San Diego, California, August 6, 2013 – RF Industries, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RFIL) announced that it has sold its RF Neulink division to Raveon Technologies Corporation. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“This sale will allow us to focus on our profitable, core operations. RF Industries has grown rapidly through a focused strategy of providing innovative interconnect products and complex cable assemblies to growing markets, predominantly wireless. RF Neulink, which contributed less than 1% of RF Industries’ total sales for the six months ended April 30, 2013, did not contribute meaningfully to the growth or profitability of RF Industries. The divestiture of the RF Neulink division is part of our continuous process to evaluate the performance of our divisions and better concentrate our energy and resources on the higher growth and higher margin core components of our business,” commented Howard Hill, Chief Executive Officer of RF Industries.
