Exhibit No.    Description
99.1    Press Release dated July 6, 2012, issued by Opnext, Inc.

Additional Information and Where to Find It

This communication is being made in respect of the proposed business combination involving Opnext and Oclaro. In connection with the proposed transaction, each of Opnext and Oclaro has mailed a Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus (the “Proxy Statement”) to its stockholders, and each of Opnext and Oclaro may file other documents with the SEC regarding the proposed transaction. Investors and security holders of Opnext and Oclaro are urged to carefully read the Proxy Statement and other documents filed with the SEC by Opnext and Oclaro as they will contain important information about the proposed transaction. Investors and security holders may obtain free copies of the documents filed with the SEC on Opnext’s website at www.opnext.com or Oclaro’s website at www.oclaro.com or the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Opnext, Oclaro and their respective directors and executive officers may be deemed participants in the solicitation of proxies with respect to the proposed transaction. Information regarding the interests of these directors and executive officers in the proposed transaction is included in the Proxy Statement. Additional information regarding the directors and executive officers of Opnext is also included in Opnext’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2012, which was filed with the SEC on June 8, 2012.


Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Certain of the statements in this release are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that are not limited to historical facts, but reflect Opnext’s and Oclaro’s current beliefs, expectations or intentions regarding future events. Words such as “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “expect,” “plan,” “project,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “potential,” “pursue,” “target,” “continue,” and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, Opnext’s and Oclaro’s expectations with respect to the anticipated financial benefits of the proposed transaction; approval of the proposed transaction by stockholders; the satisfaction of the closing conditions to the proposed transaction; and the timing of the completion of the proposed transaction. All forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements, many of which are generally outside the control of Opnext and Oclaro and are difficult to predict. Examples of such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: (i) the failure of the merger to close for any reason; (ii) the competitive position and opportunities for the combined company; (iii) general business and economic conditions; (iv) the performance of financial markets; (v) risks relating to the consummation of the contemplated merger, including the risk that required stockholder approval and regulatory agencies might not be obtained in a timely manner or at all or that other closing conditions are not satisfied; (vi) the impact on the merger on the markets for the combined companies optical, industrial and consumer products; (vii) the failure of the combined company to realize synergies and cost-savings from the transaction or delay in realization thereof; (viii) the businesses or employees of Opnext and Oclaro not being combined and integrated successfully, or such combination taking longer or being more difficult, time-consuming or costly to accomplish than expected; (ix) operating costs and business disruption following the merger, including adverse effects on employee retention and on our business relationships with third parties; (x) the future performance of the combined company following the closing of the merger; (xi) the combined company’s ability to maintain gross margins; (xii) effects of fluctuating product mix on results; (xiii) the combined company’s ability to timely develop and commercialize new products; (xiv) the combined company’s ability to respond to evolving technologies and customer requirements; (xv) the combined company’s dependence on a limited number of customers for a significant percentage of its projected revenues; (xvi) the combined company’s ability to effectively compete with companies that have greater name recognition, broader customer relationships and substantially greater financial, technical and marketing resources; (xvii) increased costs related to downsizing and compliance with regulatory requirements in connection with such downsizing, competition and pricing pressure; (xviii) the combined company’s potential lack of availability of credit or opportunity for equity based financing; (xix) the combined company’s risks associated with international operations; (xx) the combined company’s outcome of tax audits or similar proceedings; (xxi) the outcome of litigation pending against Opnext or Oclaro and (xxii) the parties’ ability to successfully negotiate an final settlement agreement, or the Delaware and California courts’ approval of such a settlement. Additional factors that can cause the results to materially differ than those described in the forward-looking statements can be found in the most recent Form 10-Q, most recent Form 10-K and other periodic reports filed by Opnext and Oclaro with the SEC. They each anticipate subsequent events and developments may cause their views and expectations to change. Neither Opnext nor Oclaro assumes any obligation, and they specifically disclaim any intention or obligation, to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
