As a single-source strategic partner, Oclaro delivers one of the industry's
largest laser diode offerings and has the manufacturing capabilities that
customers need to speed time-to-market and achieve high volumes quickly and
reliably. Through its merger with Opnext, Oclaro was able to add visible and
violet laser diode solutions to its portfolio and, at the same time,
strengthen Oclaro's presence in Japan and Asia where key customers in the
industrial and consumer markets are located. With this expanded portfolio,
Oclaro can now provide infrared and violet laser diode solutions for
computer-to-plate printing applications as well as red laser diodes for
digital printing applications.

"By offering one of the industry's most expansive portfolios of laser diode
solutions, Oclaro can provide customers with a single-source partner that
lowers risks, speeds time to market and reduces development costs," said Yves
LeMaitre, Chief Commercial Officer for Oclaro, Inc. "The combination of violet
and visible lasers with our existing infrared high power diode lasers
strengthens our portfolio for many applications in the material processing,
medical, aesthetics and printing markets. This also enables our customers in
the consumer market to leverage our product leadership, economies of scale,
vertical integration and technology expertise."

Oclaro will also be announcing new technological advancements at Photonics
West that improve the performance and packaging for its laser diodes currently
used in laser multi-function printers. Other products on display at the show
will include Oclaro's newly qualified 14G VCSEL array for high speed optical
interconnects used in mobile, home, enterprise and data centers applications,
its red laser diodes for display applications, as well as various products
from Oclaro's advanced high power laser diode portfolio.
