In 1948 L. M. Ericsson withdrew from the UK, signing an agreement with ETL not to manufacture or compete in the UK telephone market for 20 years. All shares in ETL were sold to a British finance consortium, and it became an independent UK company until Plessey purchased all the shares in 1961. Through the 1950s and 1960s, Ericsson maintained a trading presence in Britain through the Swedish Ericsson Company Ltd.
