Safe Harbor

“Safe Harbor” Statement Under U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements include all of the statements under the “Business Outlook” section relating to our forecasted operating results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 and statements about our progress towards returning to normal operations. These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, and actual results could vary materially from these forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: our ability to recover expected amounts under our insurance policies; post-flood recovery and rebuilding efforts in Thailand; less customer demand for our products and services than forecasted; less growth in the optical communications, industrial lasers and sensors markets than we forecast; difficulties expanding into new markets; increasing competition in the optical manufacturing services markets; difficulties in delivering products and services that compete effectively from a price and performance perspective; our reliance on a limited number of customers and suppliers; difficulties in accurately forecasting demand for our services; difficulties in managing our operating costs; and other important factors as described in Fabrinet reports and documents filed from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including the factors described under the sections captioned “Risk Factors” in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q, filed on November 9, 2011 and our annual report on Form 10-K, filed on August 31, 2011. We disclaim any obligation to update information contained in these forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

Use of Non-GAAP Financials

The Company refers to the non-GAAP financial measures cited above in making operating decisions because they provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's ongoing operational performance. Non-GAAP net income excludes stock-based compensation expenses and other expenses in relation to flood. We have excluded these items in order to enhance investors’ understanding of our ongoing operations. The use of these non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations because they should not be used to evaluate our company without reference to their corresponding GAAP financial measures. As such, we compensate for these material limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures in conjunction with GAAP financial measures.

These non-GAAP financial measures are used to: (1) measure company performance against historical results, (2) facilitate comparisons to our competitors’ operating results, and (3) allow greater transparency with respect to information used by management in financial and operational decision making. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are used to measure company performance for the purposes of determining employee incentive plan compensation.
