Some tidbits from yesterday's conference cal with Oclaro Inc. (Nasdaq: OCLR), the merged Bookham/Avanex that was created yesterday with a logo that I'm going to describe as dark purple. (See Bookham, Avanex Form Oclaro.) It certainly beats the color-blindness tests of the similarly named, but wholly irrelevant, O-Cel-O.
That's the Bookham half. How did the Avanex half do? We'll never completely know. Oclaro will count up the combined business from here on out, but with Avanex vanishing as a public company, Oclaro declares Avanex's full March-quarter results will never be released.
Bookham executives at least dropped a hint: Avenex revenues were in the "middle" of the $24 million to $31 million range that its executives had predicted.
