Here are OCLI's numbers...

Should these numbers be simply added to JDSU's equivalent entries, or is there more to it than that?


There's more to it than that. I believe that the two companies did business together before, so when you consolidate them, the intercompany activity is eliminated. Since we don't know the full extent of that activity, we really just have to wait until the companies are combined in the financial statements.

As far as competitors go, I've thought of using NT, LU and or GLW, but the problem is that all of those companies have aspects of their businesses that are different than that of JDSU, since I can't separate out the competing parts (which I believe are also larger portions of their business), I'm still leaning towards going with the companies that have the most similar overall businesses.
