Comments CDT's CEO Dr David Fyfe: "We are delighted to see rapid progress being made by the team from Sumation(TM), our joint venture operation formed in 2005. We place a very high priority on continuing to improve the underlying capability of P-OLED technology and the range of applications it can satisfy. We expect to continue to report further progress going forward. These data demonstrate the very significant synergy achieved with the combination of two very experienced teams in Cambridge and Tokyo."

(1) Lifetime data has hitherto been reported by CDT from an initial luminance of 100cd/m2. On this basis, the blue fluorescent devices would have an extrapolated lifetime of 200,000 hours. (2) Equivalent to 800,000 hours from 100cd/m2. (3) Equivalent to 600,000 hours from 100cd/m2 About CDT

Cambridge Display Technology is a pioneer in the development of light emitting polymers (P-OLEDs) and their use in a wide range of electronic display products used for information management, communications and entertainment. P-OLEDs are part of the family of organic light emitting diodes, or OLEDs, which are thin, lightweight and power efficient devices that emit light when an electric current flows. P-OLEDs offer an enhanced visual experience and superior performance characteristics compared with other flat panel display technologies such as liquid crystal displays, and have the key advantage that they can be applied in solution using printing processes. Founded in 1992, the company is headquartered in Cambridge, UK and listed on the US NASDAQ National Market under the symbol 'OLED'. In 2005, CDT and Sumitomo Chemical established a joint venture called Sumation(TM), which develops, manufactures and sells P-OLED materials to the display industry.
