NAPERVILLE, Ill., July 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Dear Stockholders, Customers, Employees and Friends,

It is my sad duty to inform you that Tellabs CEO Rob Pullen has lost his battle with cancer. He passed away today.

We extend our sympathies to Rob's wife Dawn, his children Brittany and Brendan, and his family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them. 

On a personal note, I was honored to have worked side by side with Rob at Tellabs for 30 years. No words can describe the grief I feel right now.

Sincerely,
