Samsung Display will remain a significant shareholder of Corning for 7 more years

Starting with the CRT and LCD displays to the rising era of foldable panels, Samsung Display and Corning working together for more than 7 years, providing technical as well as business benefits to each other as a legacy.

However, it looks like both the company will be adding 7 more years to the partnership as Samsung will maintain an ownership stake in Corning until 2028 by converting all the preference shares into 115 million common shares.

Moreover, Corning will repurchase the 35 million common shares of Samsung Display to hand over its 9% ownership stake in order to increase the EPS (Earnings Per Share) of the company. Meanwhile, this deal will happen later this month.

“From the early days of CRT to LCD, to more recent collaborations on OLED, QD Display, and flexible displays, we’re proud to be the key material innovation partner to Samsung”, said Corning chairman/CEO Wendell P. Weeks
