11 July 2002 -- Alcatel Optronics - which makes optical components, modules and integrated sub-systems for telecoms networks - says that the management buy-out of Alcatel Optronics Netherlands has been completed, in line with the announcement of 5 June.
The new entity, called C2V, is independently owned and financially supported by Dutch private equity firm Greenfield Capital Partners. Its non-telecom MEMS and planar design software stem from two start-ups bought by Kymata prior to its acquisition by Alcatel Optronics.
A C2V team will be dedicated to Alcatel Optronics for 18 months on a planar design research and development program.
