TEL AVIV -- Orckit Communications Ltd. (Nasdaq: ORCT - News) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a three-for-one stock split of the Company's Ordinary Shares to be effected in the form of a 200% stock dividend, pursuant to which the Company will distribute to each holder of an Ordinary Share two additional Ordinary Shares for no consideration.

As of February 25, 2005, Orckit had 4,540,718 ordinary shares outstanding. Following the share split, the Company will have 13,622,154 ordinary shares outstanding.

With shareholder approval, the Company will announce the record date and distribution date of the stock dividend, which is expected to occur in early April 2005.
