Management Commentary

"The first quarter of 2020 was marked by our continued advancement of our proprietary electro-optic polymers, incorporating feedback from potential partners to drive our technology closer to commercialization," said Michael Lebby, Chief Executive Officer of Lightwave Logic. "We have, and will continue, to focus on materials innovation and speed of our modulators, which brings us one step closer to future integration of our technology.

"From a thought leadership perspective, we continue to gain mindshare with key industry players - most recently through my virtual keynote address at the SPIE Photonics Digital Forum in April 2020. During that event, I discussed how polymer optimal devices, such as ours, are the clear choice for next-generation internet infrastructure given their ability to operate at lower voltages with improved signal quality. We were also fortunate to have our article on the benefits of EO polymers featured in Photonics Media, a leading industry trade publication.

"I look forward to continued progress in the months ahead as well advancing our development of prototypes and enhanced performance both at 1310 as well as 1550nm optical wavelengths. We continue to focus on creating sustainable value for our shareholders over the long-term," concluded Lebby.
