Ronez in the Channel Islands is set to be sold for £45 million.
The firm has 76 staff in Guernsey, 53 in Jersey and 24 roving employees, but officials say the takeover of the quarrying and building material firm will not put jobs at risk.

There's been a drop in unemployment in Jersey, with 80 people finding jobs in November.
1,310 islanders were registered as Actively Seeking Work last month, 180 lower than November 2015.
Around a fifth of those had been job hunting for a year or more.
