"The second quarter continued the trend of revenues transitioning toward the commercial side," said Sidney D. Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Universal Display. "Though government contracts and other developmental work continue to be an important part of our revenue makeup, the volume production and sales of AMOLED displays produced by our licensees, like Samsung SDI, are making up a larger portion of our total revenues. We expect this to continue in coming quarters as production capacity is increased on a number of AMOLED display lines, display manufacturers begin producing new larger-area displays, and the demand for AMOLED displays continues to rise."
Mr. Rosenblatt continued, "As AMOLED displays continue to gain commercial traction and acceptance, we are also excited about the potential for white OLED lighting products. Recently, we announced that our Universal PHOLED(TM) phosphorescent OLED technology had achieved a record-breaking power efficacy for a white OLED of 102 lumens per watt (lm/W) at 1000 cd/m2. We also announced a new contract with the U.S. Department of Energy, and Armstrong World Industries, Inc. as a subcontractor, to develop a ceiling-based OLED lighting system for possible commercial application. Our Universal PHOLED(TM) technology is not only important for the future of displays and lighting, but now it is being applied more broadly in the present as well."
