expansion of our intellectual property portfolio. We believe we are well
positioned to build on our materials expertise and further bolster our

opportunities that lie ahead of us," said Mr. Abramson. "Founded on the
R&D mission to develop and commercialize key technologes for OLEDs, we
continue to expand the potential of our OLED business as we leverage our
intellectual property, materials and growing product portfolio. Over the
past few years, we have made tremendous progress in improving our

PHOLED is the key to OLED technology's success. We believe that OLED
penetration will broaden to applications such as mid-end smartphones,
high-end tablets, the commercialization of OLED TVs, flexible devices
and wearable displays. In lighting, we recently signed new customer
