eMagin Corporation (NYSE MKT: EMAN), the leader in OLED technology for the design and manufacture of OLED microdisplays for high resolution imaging products, today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2012 ended June 30, 2012.
“I am pleased to report record revenue of $8.6 million, fueled by a 20 percent increase in display sales,” stated Andrew G. Sculley, president and chief executive officer. “We captured the highest level of new business bookings ever, which drove our backlog to new highs. This performance, demonstrates the strong demand for our displays, from our new digital VGA to our latest HD WUXGA. These microdisplays are used in a wide range of products from portable viewers and thermal weapons sights to military and personal headsets. Our base business performed well both in domestic and international markets and our outlook for the balance of the year remains positive. Our second quarter performance reflects growing market demand for our advanced OLED technologies, which can address the most demanding applications, as well as further improvements in our manufacturing capacity and yield.”
Mr. Sculley added, “We are manufacturing displays on our new OLED deposition tool as we continue to work on full-automation to optimize production capacity. We believe the displays coming off the new tool are of even higher overall quality, with increased uniformity. The increased uniformity is a benefit to both quality and yield. Once fully optimized, the new machine is expected to provide a 10-fold increase in OLED deposition capacity. During this period, we will continue to also produce on the Satella, our other OLED deposition machine, in order to enhance throughput and meet increasing customer orders.”
Revenues for the second quarter rose 15.3 percent to a record $8.6 million versus $7.4 million for the second quarter of 2011. The growth in revenues is mainly attributable to increased OLED microdisplays sales, which rose 19.8 percent.
