ITEITE Group plc has sold TradeLink ITE Sdn. Bhd., the owner of Metaltech, the metalworking exhibition in Malaysia, to UBMMG Holdings Sdn. Bhd., a subsidiary of UBM plc for a total cash on completion consideration of MYR 23 million (£4.2m).

In the year to 30 September 2017, Tradelink ITE had gross assets of MYR 29.4m (£5.4m), reported a turnover of MYR 12.4m (£2.3m) and, due to non-recurring costs, made a loss before tax of MYR 1.7m (£0.3m).

Mark Shashoua, CEO, ITE Group plc said: “For the Metaltech team, this represents a logical and exciting development – their new parent has an existing business in Malaysia and can ensure the investment and continued success of the exhibition. I would like to thank our team in Malaysia for their contribution to ITE over the years and wish them well for the future.”

ITE acquired TradeLink in 2013.
