“Universal Display delivered another strong quarter of profitability and ended 2013 with superior year-over-year growth, translating into record revenues and earnings,” said Sidney D. Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Universal Display. “Across the Company, we have been building momentum for profitable growth. A significant milestone was reached in 2013 with the commercial adoption of our green emissive dopants and green hosts. We continue to expand our IP and materials portfolio, while also pursuing new avenues of opportunity including single layer barrier encapsulation and organic vapor jet printing (OVJP) technologies. These long-term projects are in their early stages, but we believe they hold promise. We are also optimistic about the prospects for growing our business and enabling energy efficient OLED products as we continue to improve our materials, broaden our product portfolio, deepen our customer relationships, and foster developmental activity. Looking ahead to 2014, these factors and the growing OLED market give us confidence in our upward trajectory as we build shareholder value.”
