Illumina, Inc. (ILMN) said it is sending a letter from its Board of Directors highlighting supportive reports issued by two of the nation's leading proxy advisor firms. The company's Board recommends that stockholders reject Roche's (RHHBY.PK) offer and vote for the election of its highly qualified nominees at its 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders by completing the WHITE proxy card on April 9, 2012.

Illumina also urged its shareholders to vote the WHITE PROXY CARD to re-elect to the Board four highly qualified and experienced directors, Blaine Bowman; Karin Eastham; Jay Flatley, President and CEO; and William Rastetter, Chairman.
