* Says may use part of proceeds for acquisitions
* Intends to list the stock under "NPTN" on NYSE
April 15 Neophotonics Corp filed with U.S.
securities regulators on Thursday to raise up to $115 million
in an initial public offering of common stock.
The company, which makes photonic integrated circuit-based
modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high-speed
communications networks, plans to list its stock on the New
York Stock Exchange under the symbol "NPTN," but did not say
how many shares it plans to sell.
Neophotonics said it plans to use the net proceeds from the
offering for working capital, and may also use a portion of the
net proceeds to acquire complementary businesses, products,
services or technologies.
The company told the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission in a preliminary prospectus that J.P. Morgan
Securities Inc and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc are acting as
joint book-running managers of the offering.
