CUI Global Inc (NASDAQ:CUI) signed a non-binding letter of intent late Wednesday to acquire four privately-held companies.

The combination of CUI Global as the public company platform, along with four privately-held companies, which remained unnamed, would create an energy services company with annual revenue of about $350 million. The combined entity intends to be known as Pro Forma CUI and would be led by former Quanta Services CEO Jim O'Neil.

The deal would include issuing 160 million shares of CUI stock, $30 million in cash, a $45 million one-year unsecured sellers note, the assumption of $15 million in outstanding debt and an earn-out payable over 5 years of up to $200 million.

The deal is expected to be announced by June 1.
