Illumina Advises Stockholders To Take No Action In Response To Roche's New Offer

Illumina, Inc. (ILMN) suggested that its stockholders take no action at this time in response to announcement by Roche Holding AG (RHHBY.PK) that it is now offering to acquire Illumina for $51.00 per share in cash.

Earlier, on February 7, 2012, Illumina's Board of Directors rejected Roche's $44.50 per share cash tender offer and recommended that stockholders not tender their shares.

Illumina stated that its Board of Directors will thoroughly review Roche's revised proposal and make a recommendation to stockholders regarding the proposal in due course.
