The company in late September said it would look to cut an additional $135 million to $235 million in operating costs in its fiscal year, which began on Oct. 1, and it is instituting more layoffs. All that uncertainty, combined with a generally cautious macro-economic view, likely means Avaya's IPO plans -- the company filed a Form S-1 in June 2011 -- will stay shelved.
