The complete answer;

The company was independent until 1990 when it was sold to General Microwave
Corporation, a Long Island (NY) company and I remained as Director of Fiber
Optic Engineering. In 1997, Math Associates, Inc. was dissolved and the
assets and trademarks were sold to Communications Specialties, Inc. (CSI).
I stayed on as Director of Fiber Optic Engineering with CSI.
In September 1999, having fulfilled all contractual requirements I left CSI and
reformed Math Associates, Inc. as a private corporation in New York State once

product line using the latest components and technology and incorporated many of
the features customers have asked for during the 20+ years I have been in the
field. The Litelink? product line is the result of that effort.
