Oclaro To Sell Off Assets To II-VI Subsidiary

The agreement is to generate cash and strengthen the firm's existing relationship with II-VI and Photop Technologies
Oclaro, Inc., a provider and innovator of optical communications and laser products, has signed a definitive agreement to sell the assets of its Santa Rosa thin film filter business to Photop Technologies, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of II-VI Incorporated.


Oclaro says it will sell its interleaver product line to Photop Koncent, Inc. (FuZhou).


Both transactions are expected to close on December 3rd, 2012.


Total consideration to Oclaro for these transactions will be in the form of cash proceeds of $27 million, with $23 million to be paid upon closing, $3 million payable on or before December 28th, 2012 and $1 million to be held in escrow until December 31st, 2013.


"Divesting our thin film filter business and the interleaver product line is consistent with our strategy to focus our resources on our core competencies," says Alain Couder, chairman and CEO of Oclaro.


"The proceeds from these deals improve our balance sheet and give us additional operating flexibility to serve our global customer base. The agreements also strengthen our existing relationships with II-VI and Photop, and will ensure customers in the telecom, life sciences and industrial markets continued access to these products as part of an even broader portfolio from a market leader."


Francis J. Kramer, president and CEO of II-VI Incorporated comments, "This acquisition will enhance Photop's core business while expanding their global footprint and diversification into the growing life sciences market. We look forward to the world class team at Santa Rosa becoming a part of II-VI."


Divesting these product lines is expected to reduce revenues for the fiscal quarter ended December 29th, 2012 by approximately $2 million compared to the guidance range issued by Oclaro in connection with its earnings announcement on November 5th, 2012.


Revenues for these product lines in the full fiscal quarter ended September 29th, 2012 were $3.6 million.


 




AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
