Oplink completes acquisition of OCP

Photonic component, module and subsystem maker Oplink Communications Inc of Fremont, CA, USA has acquired the remaining 42% of the outstanding common stock of Optical Communication Products Inc of Woodland Hills, CA, USA, which designs and manufactures fiber-optic communication components and subsystems.

This follows approval of the corresponding merger (between OCP and a subsidiary of Oplink) by more than two-thirds of the holders of OCP common stock not held by Oplink. Oplink has paid the stockholders $1.65 per share (about $80m in total).

Oplink had agreed to acquire the outstanding OCP shares on 19 June, after previously completing its purchase of the 57.9% stake of The Furukawa Electric Co Ltd on 5 June.

As a result of the merger’s completion, OCP is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Oplink. “We look forward to integrating OCP with Oplink and being able to provide our combined customer base a broader product portfolio of offerings,” says Oplink’s president and CEO Joe Liu.
