JDSU to separate into two public Companies
01 October 2014 - JDSU announced that its Board of Directors has unanimously approved a plan to separate JDSU into two publicly traded companies: An optical components and commercial lasers company (“CCOP”) consisting of JDSU’s current Communications and Commercial Optical Products segment and a network and service enablement company (“NSE”) consisting of JDSU’s current Network Enablement, Service Enablement and Optical Security and Performance Products (OSP) segments.
The CCOP (optical components and commercial lasers) company, with its long-standing reputation for optical innovation and quality, serves a $7.4 billion optical communications market expected to grow at a compounded rate of 11 percent over the next four yearsi. It also addresses an approximate $2.5 billion commercial lasers market, growing at a forecasted 7 percent annuallyii.
The stand-alone NSE (network and service enablement) company will be a leader in its core businesses, addressing an approximate $7 billion network and service enablement market expected to grow at 6-8 percent annuallyiii. The NSE company will primarily focus its investments in higher growth markets, particularly software supporting virtualized and software-defined networks. The optical security business addresses an approximate $1.1 billion market growing at an expected 6-8 percentiv.
The separation is expected to occur through a tax-free pro rata spinoff of CCOP to JDSU shareholders, though the structure is subject to change based upon various tax and regulatory factors.
“Over the past five years, JDSU has invested heavily in innovation that is well aligned with the industry’s best growth opportunities, including cloud networking, data center expansion and software-defined networks,” said Tom Waechter, JDSU president and CEO. “These opportunities extend beyond the traditional telecom ecosystem and now include web services, over-the-top, enterprise and other customers. We believe two fundamentally focused companies best position us to stay ahead of the accelerating pace of technology change and to compete even more effectively across the unique markets we serve today.”
Waechter added, “Now is the time to make this transition, giving these businesses the opportunity to maximize their success while providing shareholders with distinct investment opportunities in two growth markets.”
