After just a year and a half of operation, Hakuto Co. (Tokyo, Japan) has sold its share of a joint venture back to Optical Coating Laboratory Inc. (OCLI; Santa Rosa, CA). Hakuto-OCLI Co. Ltd., which had been equally shared between the two companies since April 1997, will now be called OCLI Asia Co.
