Belden Inc. is selling its consumer electronics assets in China for $43 million.

Belden, a maker of cable, connectivity and networking products headquartered in Clayton, said the sale of the assets to Shenzhen Woer Heat-Shrinkable Material Co. Ltd., is slated to close this year, pending Chinese regulatory approval.

The sale is expected to reduce Belden's 2013 revenue by between $100 and $120 million, but will not significantly impact operating profit, the company said.

"We believe this is a positive outcome that will benefit Belden shareholders by returning our focus to areas of strategic relevance in Asia," Belden's president and CEO John Stroup said in a statement.
