    The Company organised a second EGM today at its headquarters in Lannion. The extraordinary resolutions submitted during this meeting were similar to those submitted during the previous EGM called on March 21 during which the necessary quorum has not been reached.

Our goal, today, is to propose an strong European alternative in the optoelectronics components and sub-systems sector.
