Lightwave Logic Inc's Comment on Competitors and Industry Peers

The markets we are targeting for our electro-optic polymer technology are intensely competitive. Among the largest fiber-optic component manufactures are Finisar, JDSU, Oclaro, NeoPhotonics, OpLink, CyOptics. Additionally, the five largest inorganic modulator component manufacturers hold approximately 85% of the electro-optic modulator component market. They are JDSU, Sumitomo, Oclaro, Fujitsu and ThorLabs. These companies are heavily invested in the production of crystalline-based electro-optic modulator technologies, as well as the development of novel manufacturing techniques and modulator designs.

GigPeak, Inc. may be considered our primary polymer competitor. They design and have patented potentially commercially feasible electro-optic polymers and hold an exclusive license to all electro-optic polymeric technology developed at the University of Washington. GigPeak presently has a joint venture with CPqD, an independent Brazil institution. GigPeak has sold a majority interest of their polymer IP to BrPhotonics S/A based in Brazil. Recently, GigPeak announced that it signed an agreement for Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (IDT) to acquire GigPeak. We do not know at this time what IDT’s intention is regarding polymer technology.

We believe that as our organic polymer technology gains industry acceptance, we will be poised to obtain a significant portion of the component manufacturing market. Electro-optic polymers demonstrate several advantages over other technologies, such as inorganic-based technologies, due to their reduced manufacturing and processing costs, higher performance and lower power requirements. Our patented organic polymers and future electro-optic photonic devices have demonstrated significant stability advantages over our known competitor's materials.

We believe the principal competitive factors in our target markets are:

The ability to develop and commercialize highly stable optical polymer-based materials and optical devices in commercial quantities.

The ability to obtain appropriate patent and proprietary rights protection.

Lower cost, high production yield for these products.

The ability to enable integration and implement advanced technologies.

Strong sales and marketing, and distribution channels for access to products.

We believe that our current business planning will position our Company to compete adequately with respect to these factors. Our future success is difficult to predict because we are an early stage company with all of our potential products still in development.

Many of our existing and potential competitors have substantially greater research and product development capabilities and financial, scientific, marketing and human resources than we do. As a result, these competitors may:

Succeed in developing products that are equal to or superior to our potential products or that achieve greater market acceptance than our potential products.

Devote greater resources to developing, marketing or selling their products.

Respond quickly to new or emerging technologies or scientific advances and changes in customer requirements, which could render our technologies or potential products obsolete.

Introduce products that make the continued development of our potential products uneconomical.

Obtain patents that block or otherwise inhibit our ability to develop and commercialize our potential products.

Withstand price competition more successfully than we can.

Establish cooperative relationships among themselves or with third parties that enhance their ability to address the needs of our prospective customers.

Take advantage of acquisition or other opportunities more readily than we can.

*Market share is not actual measurement, only performance comparison of companies which report and operate within the same segment.
