SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Coherent, Inc. (Nasdaq: COHR), a leading supplier of lasers and electro-optics for commercial and scientific applications, announced an adjusted EBITDA target of 19-23% of sales exiting fiscal year 2010.

The Company intends to achieve the target through a variety of activities including material cost reductions, expanded use of contract manufacturers, SG&A leverage, the introduction of more flexible and cost-effective platform designs and continued yield and reliability improvements.
