PresentationJonathan E. Dorsheimer – Canaccord Genuity
Okay. Well, I’d like to thank everybody for coming. My name is Jed Dorsheimer. I’m one of the Senior Analysts at Canaccord running the Display and Lighting sectors globally for our firm.
And well for those who saw me at lunch, give a presentation on LEDs and solid-state lighting, one of the key ingredients in manufacturing an LED, which is the basic component for any solid-state light is sapphire technology.
Basically it’s the substrates that’s used in 90% of the growth of LEDs and there is a few incumbent companies that sell into that market and we’re lucky enough to have one of them Rubicon Technology here to tell us more about how they are doing. It’s interesting I actually go back about 11 years when I first did diligence on this company. And so it’s been nice to see them grow and come into the public market.
To just to do a couple of housekeeping items, one, we will have our breakout with all the Q&A across the hall in the – in the London room; and two, I’d point you to our conference materials for important disclosure.
I’d like to introduce Dee Johnson in the back, Head of IR for Rubicon, and Bill too, CFO of Rubicon to tell us more about their story and how they are going with the LED and also more recently the Silicon-on-Sapphire.
