Management Commentary
"The fourth quarter of 2023 was highlighted by ongoing interest in licensing our technologies, driven by our first commercial material supply license agreement announced in May," said Dr. Michael Lebby, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic. "This initial licensing agreement demonstrated tangible commercial progress and market acceptance of our EO polymer materials. As we continue to engage with a wide spectrum of companies – including multinational tier-1 corporations – our first licensing agreement has served as a good commercial template to discuss the potential for additional committed, multi-year agreements.

"Although closing agreements are a long and deliberate process, we are encouraged by these positive discussions and momentum from potential customers for our innovative device platform and licensing our technologies. In our conversations with potential customers, the biggest points are not performance related. They know our polymers are fast, low power and in a smaller footprint. They are asking to see more reliability data and the ability to produce at scale, as well as to ensure that we can sustain a long-term partnership.

"To that end, we continue to provide more reliability data and have accelerated this with our facilities expansion in 2023. We are actively working with foundries that supply 200mm silicon wafers so that we can showcase the ability to scale in volume. Given our robust cash position with no debts – we believe that we are well positioned to serve as a value-added partner and will continue to grow increasingly strong in the quarters and years to come.

"Underlying this momentum is the fact that our technology continues to be recognized for driving innovative change in our industry, most recently with the 2023 Industry Award for Most Innovative Hybrid PIC/Optical Integration Platform from the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC). With our commercialization underway, awards such as this further validate our technology and provide industry confirmation of the inherent benefits of our platform. Our ability to evangelize the benefits of platform at leading industry events globally has been an important part of our awareness efforts. At the Optica Photonic-Enabled Cloud Computing Industry Summit I was privileged to present how electro-optic polymers can serve as a core enabling technology in the future of cloud computing, and ultimately, become a ubiquitous part of the internet itself.

"Our efforts in 2023 to expand our new laboratory production facilities and add key team members has positioned us for anticipated growth in 2024. Supporting these efforts, we continue to fortify our intellectual property with new patent issuances and patent applications. We are encouraged by the constructive meetings we are having with industry leaders, and believe they are positioning us to capitalize on our momentum with additional licensees as we continue to build the excitement around our technology, which we believe has the potential to deliver sustainable value for our shareholders over the long-term," concluded Lebby.
