"We are pleased to report another record quarter of strong revenues and operating profit. The continued broadening array of OLED consumer products such as smartphones, tablets and wearables, coupled with Universal Display’s leadership in phosphorescent OLED materials and technologies, drove our top-line and bottom-line growth," said Sidney D. Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Universal Display. "From commitments to OLED TV and flexible display production to our expanding customer base, OLED activity continues to grow. Recently, we announced an extended evaluation agreement with BOE Technology, China’s largest panel maker, and a commercial materials agreement with Philips, a pioneer of lighting development and production. Looking forward, we continue to be excited by what we believe to be substantial growth opportunities in the evolving OLED display and lighting markets.”
