Jumias tech-focused hardware firm has climbed as it’s announced that CEO James P. Buehler has resigned amid a shake-up of the company’s management.
Jumiam, which is headquartered in Cambridge, Mass., is best known for its computer chip and networking solutions.
The company has struggled with slowing sales, and analysts have warned it could suffer a big drop in revenue if the stock price doesn’t continue to rally.
But Buehner has told investors that the shakeup is not a “bailout” and is focused on finding a buyer.
Bueshler has served as chief executive of Jumies semiconductor business since 2014, and is one of its key advisers.
The move comes after a year-long review that included a review of the business and the business of Jusica Technologies, a technology-focused technology company that Jumios board of directors had approved earlier this year.
Bucehler was the first CEO at Jumius, which has been in business since 1993, to resign after the company reported lackluster first-quarter results.
Bausehler, who has worked for Buehlers companies for more than 25 years, is one-third of the board, with another member, Michael J. St. Clair, serving as the CEO of the other two.
Buedhler has said that Jusicamps board has decided to “take a step back” to focus on finding new investors.
Jusics board also approved a $1.2 billion purchase of JUMIIA TECHNOLOGIES, Inc., which was intended to create a “significant value-creation opportunity.”
“The board has reviewed our business and concluded that the company should be sold to a new owner, with immediate effect, without having to wait until the IPO to do so,” Buehl said in a statement.
Buehnal says he is leaving the board because he feels the board needs to do more to help the company survive and grow. “
Jusicamp has an outstanding business and we believe a significant value creation opportunity exists in our company, and that is why we are taking this step.”

Buhlts departure comes as Jumiac and Jusias technology companies are battling for business as other firms seek to catch up with the booming market for technology services.
