MILPITAS, Calif. -- JDSU (Nasdaq: JDSU - News; TSX: JDU - News) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a 1-for-8 reverse split of its common stock, following approval by the Company's stockholders on December 1, 2005. The reverse stock split will be effective at 11:59 pm, Eastern Time, on Monday, October 16, 2006. JDSU's common stock will begin trading on the NASDAQ on a split adjusted basis when the market opens on Tuesday, October 17, 2006, under the temporary trading symbol "JDSUD". The trading symbol will revert to "JDSU" after approximately twenty trading days. JDSU's reverse stock split is intended to enhance investors' visibility into the Company's profitability on a per share basis. The Company also believes that a higher share price could broaden JDSU's appeal to investors, in addition to reducing per share transaction fees and certain administrative costs.

The reverse split will reduce the number of shares of the Company's common stock outstanding from approximately 1.7 billion to approximately 211 million. Furthermore, proportional adjustments will be made to JDSU stock options and other equity incentive awards, equity compensation plans and convertible notes. The number of authorized shares of common stock will be reduced from 6 billion to 1 billion.

The exchangeable shares of JDS Uniphase Canada Ltd. ("JDU"), a subsidiary of the Company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, will effect a comparable reverse stock split at the same ratio of 1-for-8. No adjustment to the trading symbol "JDU" will be made for the exchangeable shares. The reverse split will reduce the number of exchangeable shares outstanding from approximately 51 million to approximately 6 million.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
