SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IntraOp Corporation (“IntraOp”) (OTC: IOPD) announced today that it has retained NewCap Partners to act as financial and strategic advisor to assist the Board of Directors and management in evaluating strategic alternatives for the Company that may enhance shareholder value.
