CEPS is selling its investment in the CEM group. 

CAPS has an 80% stake in CEMTeal, which owns CEM Press and Sampling International. The purchase of Sampling International has not proved to be a success. Only £9 of the potential £1.2m payment has been made due to poor performance. The anticipated efficiencies from consolidating the two businesses have not been achieved.

The CEMTeal loss in 2018 meant that CEPS reported a profit less than one-half of what it would have been without the company being consolidated. The loss is increasing. CEPS is owed £2.1m by the CEMTeal businesses.

Moorfields Advisory has been appointed to advise CEPS and it believes that the businesses should be sold as quickly as possible.
