Inphi Completes Acquisition of ClariPhy Communications, Inc.

Dec 12, 2016

. Further Solidifies Inphi's Market Leadership in High-Speed Optical and Networking Interconnects SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 12, 2016) - Inphi Corporation ( NYSE : IPHI ), a leading provider of high-speed data movement interconnects, today announced that it has completed the acquisition of ClariPhy Communications, Inc., as announced on November 1, 2016, in a transaction valued at $277 million plus the assumption of certain liabilities. "By finalizing the ClariPhy acquisition we achieve an important milestone in offering a platform for optical networking customers," said Ford Tamer, President and CEO of Inphi Corporation. "The ClariPhy coherent DSP complements Inphi TiA, driver, optical PHY and silicon photonics components to provide system OEM and module customers high-performance and low-power platform solutions. We believe this will provide customers with faster time-to-market, proven quality, and competitive cost. " IHS estimates the total available market for 100G & 200G coherent optical network hardware will grow at 18% CAGR, from $3.2 billion to $7.4 billion, between 2015 and 2020. This growth will be driven by several concurrent, powerful tailwinds: the current optical super cycle, a growing and expanding SAM (serviceable available market), opportunities in regions such as China and with new markets such as Cloud. Inphi believes that this acquisition will position the Company to be one of the most comprehensive component and platform suppliers across all three optical market segments inside/outside data centers, metro and long haul.
