SAN JOSE, CA | Posted on March 28th, 2007

"We would like to thank Diego for his dedication and commitment to the
USDC during his term as chairman. Through his leadership efforts, the USDC
has succeeded in spearheading more than 25 R&D contracts to support future
display innovations, including our newest initiative aimed at developing
the flexible, printed and organic electronics (FPO) market," noted USDC
President Michael Ciesinski.

Ciesinski added, "Mike's in-depth knowledge and commitment to enabling
the flexible displays and electronics market makes him an ideal candidate
as chairman of our governing board. Having already been heavily involved
with the USDC as a board member, Mike's new role will be to keep the USDC
centrally focused on the display space, while leading the consortium in new
directions. I am especially pleased that Jim, Steve and Dan will also help
drive forward USDC's FPO initiative."

In his new role, McCreary is chartered with overseeing the USDC's
decisions on policy, program content and disposition of funds available to
the consortium for sponsoring FPD technology-related R&D projects. During
his term, he will also work with the governing board and all USDC
stakeholders to further steer the USDC in a strategic direction that will
increase the consortium's value in the electronics industry and the
application areas it serves.

"I look forward to leading USDC's governing board, which has played an
enabling role in the electronics display industry through its R&D and
business development programs," said McCreary. "Now, there are exciting
opportunities to further extend display capabilities, as well as drive
development of new processes in related areas such as the FPO arena. The
USDC will be at the forefront of these new technologies, providing even
more substantial value to its private-sector and federal partners."
