UDC's revenues in 2016 reached $198.9 million, up slightly from 2015 ($191 million) - mostly driven by higher royalty and license fees (commercial material sales revenues were lower than in 2015). Net income in 2016 was $48.1 million, and operating cash flow was $80.3 million.

UDC sees an "extremely positive momentum in its business" and the company is "well positioned to capture the tremendous opportunities" in the OLED market. The company has $343 million in cash and equivalents. For 2017, UDC believes that its revenues will be in the range of $230 million to $250 million. UDC also announced its first dividend - a quarterly cash dividend of $0.03 per share ($1.4 million in total).

UDC also announced that it is accelerating its OVJP R&D, and the company is starting to talk to companies regarding the commercialization of this new production technology. This is going to be a long process though and UDC expects it to take a few years before OVJP can really be deployed in production.
