Correcting inaccurate media reporting, II-VI Incorporated (Nasdaq: IIVI) (“II-VI”) announced today that it has not been requested by the State Administration for Market Regulation of the People’s Republic of China (“SAMR”) to re-file the application for clearance that II-VI previously filed with SAMR with respect to II-VI’s pending acquisition of Finisar Corporation (the “Merger”).   

SAMR’s review of the Merger is currently in Phase III, which ends on August 17, 2019.  II-VI will make a subsequent announcement either when SAMR approves the Merger, or if Phase III expires and II-VI re-files in order to provide additional time for SAMR to review the transaction.
