POET appoints new Investor Relations Counsel
POET Technologies, a developer of opto-electronics fabrication processes for the semiconductor industry, has announced the appointment of Robert Ferri Partners, LLC, as the company's investor relations counsel.
"The appointment of San Francisco-based Robert Ferri Partners is part of the previously announced transition of our leadership and operations team to Silicon Valley," said POET CEO Suresh Venkatesan. "Our entire team welcomes Robert Ferri, who has served a number of semiconductor companies over nearly two decades. We also appreciate the contributions of our previous IR counselors and we thank them for their service."
POET also announced the acceleration of the previously announced shift of corporate operations to Silicon Valley from Toronto and Connecticut, inclusive of the people and the lab. The company's Connecticut laboratory ceased operations on October 30, 2015, ahead of the previously expected completion date in the first quarter of 2016.
The company announced on September 30, 2015, that it had secured office/lab space in San Jose to serve as headquarters and a base for growth and is working to commercialise its patented module-on-a-chip process, which integrates digital, high-speed analogue and optical devices on the same chip, thereby enabling step-function improvements in power, cost and size.
