Sugar Land, TX, Aug. 28, 2017 – Applied Optoelectronics, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAOI) today confirmed that its facilities suffered no known damage from Hurricane Harvey.

AOI’s facility suffered no known damage during the storm, and production operations are expected to continue as usual, subject to staffing constraints due to flooded roadways in and around the city of Houston.
