Bookham, Avanex Set the Date

7:20 AM -- Assuming no shareholder drama, Bookham Inc. (Nasdaq: BKHM; London: BHM) and Avanex Corp. (Nasdaq: AVNX) appear set to merge on April 27.

A revised S-4 form got filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) yesterday, giving that date for shareholder meetings of both companies.

If you haven't scanned the month-old S-4, it's recommended. You'll find tidbits like Bookham's request to shareholders for a potential reverse stock split of 1:5 to 1:30. Or a detailed history of Avanex's sale negotiations with five other companies late last year.
