Corning raises FY18 revenue view to $11.3B, consensus $11.0B
"Each of our businesses met or exceeded expectations for the second quarter. We now anticipate that 2018 will be even stronger than originally expected, with full-year sales up 10% to approximately $11.3 billion, and margin expansion in the second half of 2018. Optical Communications, Specialty Materials, Environmental Technologies, and Life Sciences segments are all expected to continue to grow, and the pricing environment in Display Technologies is the best in more than a decade. Several of our largest capacity expansion projects have exited the start-up phase, and production and efficiency rates are climbing. We expect a step-change in sales and profitability in the third quarter, and we plan to build on that going forward," said CFO Tony Tripeny.
