E Ink To End LCD Completely

By Bob Raikes

E Ink said in March that it was improving profitability by moving away from LCD production to focus completely on its EPD technology (E Ink Benefits from Strategic Change). Now at an investors’ conference the company said that LCD was below 3% in Q1 and would get to zero during the second half of 2017. The company will continue licensing the AAFS technology that it acquired with Hydis in 2008. The company said at the meeting that licence income was $13.5 million in Q1, up 5.66% on the year.
