Company Profile and Business Description for Universal Display

Universal Display Corporation, incorporated on April 24, 1985, is engaged in the research, development and commercialization of organic light emitting diode (OLED), technologies and materials for use in display and solid-state lighting applications. The Company also supplies its OLED materials to manufacturers of OLED displays and lighting products for evaluation and for use in product development and for pre-commercial activities, and it also provides technical assistance and support to these manufacturers. The Company has produced and sold phosphorescent emitter materials that produce red, yellow, green and light-blue light, which are combined in various ways for the display and lighting markets. It has also developed host materials for the emissive layer.

The Company is a supplier of phosphorescent emitter materials to OLED product manufacturers. Phosphorescent OLEDs utilize specialized materials and device structures that allow OLEDs to emit light through a process known as phosphorescence. Phosphorescence is also used for large area displays, such as televisions. The Company is developing UniversalP2OLED Printable Phosphorescent OLEDs materials and device architectures for red, green, yellow, blue and white OLED devices. Its Ewing facility houses multiple OLED deposition systems, including a full-color flexible OLED system, a system for fabricating solution-processible OLEDs, and an organic vapor jet printing (OVJP) system. The Company has developed a technology for the fabrication of OLEDs that have transparent cathodes. Transparent OLEDs (TOLEDs) use a transparent cathode and either a transparent, reflective or opaque metal anode.

The Company's other OLED device and manufacturing technologies include FOLED Flexible OLEDs, which are OLEDs built on non-rigid substrates, such as plastic or metal foil; Thin-Film Encapsulation, which is an encapsulation technology used for the packaging of flexible OLEDs and other thin-film devices, as well as for use as a barrier film for plastic substrates; UniversalP2OLED Printable Phosphorescent OLEDs; OVJP Organic Vapor Jet Printing, which reduces OLED material waste associated with use of a shadow mask, and also avoids generation of solvent wastes and eliminates the additional step of removing residual solvent from the OLED device; OVPD Organic Vapor Phase Deposition, which utilizes a carrier gas, such as nitrogen, in a hot walled reactor in a low pressure environment to deposit the layers of organic material in an OLED, and TOLED Transparent OLEDs.

In addition to accelerating the commercial viability of flexible OLEDs, its thin-film encapsulation technology provides benefits for various other flexible thin-film devices, including photovoltaics and thin-film batteries. Transparent OLEDs utilize transparent cathodes and reflective metal anodes known as top-emission OLEDs. The Company has early-stage evaluation programs, development and pre-commercial programs, and commercial arrangements with various manufacturers of OLED display and lighting products.

The Company competes with Eastman Kodak Company, Sumitomo Chemical Company, Sumitomo, Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd., Merck KGaA, Cynora Gmbh, Kyulux Inc., Dow Chemical, Doosan Electronics, SFC Co. Ltd., NSCC, Samsung SDI Co. Ltd. and Duksan.
