Universal Display reported excellent financial results for Q2 2017. Revenues increased 59% (compared to Q2 2016) to $102.5 million, with material sales increasing 110% to $46.8 million. Net income increased $25.4 million to $47.2 million.

UDC has $380 million in cash and equivalents, and is on the lookout for opportunities to use this money. UDC also increased its guidance for 2017 to be in the range of $285 million to $300 million.

UDC says that they are progressing on their quest to develop a long-lasting blue PHOLED, and they are getting close to a commercial material. Another interesting remark was that most of the income from China comes from BOE Display.

Regarding ink-jet printing, UDC does not expect any OLEDs produced by printing technologies in the foreseeable future - and this includes LG's next-gen OLED TV fab (the P10). Finally, UDC's agreement with Samsung Display expires at the end of the year, and UDC is focused on signing an long-term extension and not just a temporary agreement.

UDC Haven't really given any

UDC Haven't really given any real update on blue performance since 2012 - only cryptic messages that they are making progress and hope to have a commercial solution "soon". Statements like that seem solely to keep investors and shareholders happy as if they had made reall progress they would give some details (color point, T95 etc).
