- Samsung Display and LG Display (LPL +2.1%) have settled their contentious legal battle, which resulted in multiple display patent lawsuits and accusations of trade secret theft.
- Samsung says it has "come to an agreement with LG Display to focus on finding ways to cooperate on patent matters though discussions, and to immediately drop lawsuits" related to LCD and OLED IP.
- The settlement is an incremental positive for Universal Display (OLED +0.8%), which counts both companies as licensees (but currently gets far more revenue from Samsung). In addition to standard mobile OLED displays, both Samsung and LG are working on flexible OLEDs and OLED TV displays.
- Samsung Display was spun off from Samsung Electronics in 2012.
