FOA continually updates our technical materials, online and printed, and our curriculum to ensure our readers have access to the latest technical information and our schools teach the latest technology and applications. FOA created the FOA Online Guide as a non-commercial trustworthy technical reference almost a decade ago so the industry would have a reliable technical reference.FOA is a "virtual organization" - we have no "brick and mortar" presence.We operate over the Internet with operations centered in California, with active workers and volunteers in locations as diverse as Texas, Ohio, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, Denmark, South Africa, the Middle East and many more.When the FOA was founded as a non-profit professional society in 1995, our charter was to promote professionalism in fiber optics through education, certification and standards.Nothing in our charter has changed in the last 22 years - we're still dedicated to educating a workforce that can be respected for their efforts to make fiber optics the backbone of the world's communications systems.Teva shares plummeted nearly 18%, while fellow generic drugmakers Perrigo Co. shares dropped 2.1% , Taro Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. This past summer, Teva's earnings report sparked a wider and extended sell off in industry shares.
Teva shares have plummeted 62.8% over the last three months, compared with a 4.2% rise in the S&P 500 .
