The long-rumored merger of Avanex and Bookham is a rumor no longer. I'm on hold as I write this, waiting for the conference call to start.

According to someone at Bookham's PR firm, it's believed that Bookham will own a majority stake in the combined company, something like 53.25%. Bookham also will have a 4-3 majority on the board.

More soon...the conference is starting now.
