Reflecting on Corning’s second-quarter performance, Wendell P. Weeks, chairman, chief executive officer, and president, said, “We had a solid second quarter in terms of sales and earnings performance. We achieved much more moderate price declines for our LCD glass as set forth in our goals that we shared in February. Additionally, LCD glass retail and supply chain market statistics were generally in line with our expectations. As a whole, our other businesses grew 2% year-over-year.”

“However, we are concerned about the continuing economic challenges in Europe and China’s decelerating GDP growth. We have seen signs that the unsettled global economy impacted some of our businesses in the past quarter. For example, in Europe our Environmental Technologies segment saw reduced sales of light-duty filters for auto emission systems. We are alert to the fact that the economic woes may grow, and consumers may reduce their spending, which could impact our customers. If we see further weakness, we will respond with appropriate actions,” Weeks said.

Second-Quarter Segment Results

Sales in the Display Technologies segment were $641 million, a 9% sequential and 16% year-over-year decline. LCD glass price declines were, as expected, much more moderate.

Telecommunications segment sales were $559 million, a 10% sequential and 2% year-over-year increase. The sequential gain was driven by stronger optical fiber and cable products and enterprise network solutions sales. North America and China were the most robust geographies for Corning’s Telecommunications segment.

Specialty Materials segment sales were $296 million, a 3% sequential and 5% year-over-year improvement. The increase was driven by Gorilla Glass sales in the handheld and information technology device markets.

Environmental Technologies segment sales were $249 million, a 5% sequential and 3% year-over-year decline. The company saw strength in its heavy-duty diesel products sales in the quarter, offset by weakness in light-duty (auto) product sales, the result of planned seasonal auto manufacturing plant shutdowns and weakness in the European market.

Life Sciences segment sales were $162 million, representing 5% sequential and year-over-year increases. The company anticipates the completion of the BD Biosciences Discovery Labware unit acquisition by year-end, pending U.S. government regulatory approvals.

Dow Corning Corporation’s equity earnings were $61 million, increasing 74% sequentially, but declining 36% on a year-over-year basis. The second quarter increase, without one-time gains, would have been 43%*. Dow Corning saw sequential quarterly sales improvements in both its silicone and polysilicon segments.

Corning’s gross margin for the quarter was 42%, consistent with the previous quarter. The company ended the second quarter with $6.3 billion in cash and short-term investments. During the quarter, Corning spent $314 million in stock buybacks.

Looking Forward

“We are pleased with the progress we have made against the goals we outlined in February for stabilizing our Display Technologies segment earnings and growing our other businesses,” James B. Flaws, vice chairman and chief financial officer, said. “We are moving forward on new opportunities in high performance displays, and our recently formed OLED equity venture in Korea. We are excited about the possibilities for Corning® Willow™ Glass, an ultra-slim flexible glass that may enable some very unique opportunities for us.”

For the third quarter, Flaws noted that Corning expects LCD glass volume for the company’s wholly owned business and Samsung Corning Precision to grow in the low double digits sequentially. The stronger glass volume should be driven by normal industry seasonality, along with continued demand for tablet computers and larger TV sizes. Glass price declines in the quarter are expected to remain moderate.

Telecommunications segment sales are expected to be consistent with the previous quarter and consistent with normal seasonal trends. Corning expects sales of optical fiber and cable in China to remain strong.

Specialty Materials segment sales are anticipated to increase 10% to 15% sequentially, reflecting improved Gorilla® Glass sales during the quarter.

Environmental Technologies segment sales are expected to be similar to the previous quarter.

In the Life Sciences segment, Corning forecasts sales to be consistent to up slightly over second-quarter results.

Dow Corning equity earnings in the third quarter are expected to decline about 30%, driven primarily by the non-repeat of an $11 million gain in the second quarter. Normal summer manufacturing shutdowns will contribute to the sequential decline.

Corning’s tax rate in the third quarter is anticipated to be approximately 19%.

“Our first-half performance was in line with our expectations. Our LCD glass business remains highly profitable, and our other businesses in aggregate grew year-over-year,” Flaws said.

“Current economic conditions may present challenges for the near term. In spite of this, we anticipate continued growth in several of our businesses in the third quarter,” he said.

Presentation of Information in this News Release

Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP. Corning’s non-GAAP net income and EPS measures exclude restructuring, impairment and other charges and adjustments to prior estimates for such charges. Additionally, the company’s non-GAAP measures exclude adjustments to asbestos settlement reserves, gains and losses arising from debt retirements, charges or credits arising from adjustments to the valuation allowance against deferred tax assets, equity method charges resulting from impairments of equity method investments or restructuring, impairment or other charges taken by equity method companies and gains from discontinued operations. The company believes presenting non-GAAP net income and EPS measures is helpful to analyze financial performance without the impact of unusual items that may obscure trends in the company’s underlying performance. Reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures can be found on the company’s website by going to www.corning.com/investor_relations and clicking Financial Reports on the left. Reconciliation also accompanies this news release.

            1. Asbestos Litigation   Pittsburgh Corning Corporation (PCC) was named in numerous lawsuits alleging personal injury from exposure to asbestos and, on April 16, 2000, PCC filed for Chapter 11 reorganization. Corning, with other relevant parties, proposed a Plan of Reorganization of PCC in 2003, which has not yet been confirmed. Under this PCC Plan, Corning would contribute certain payments and assets. In the second quarter of 2012, we recorded a charge of $5 million ($3 million after-tax) to adjust the asbestos litigation liability for the change in value of the components to be contributed by Corning under this PCC Plan.   2.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE TO GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE

Three Months Ended June 30, 2012

(Unaudited; amounts in millions, except per share amounts)

            Corning’s net income and earnings per share (EPS) excluding special items for the second quarter of 2012 are non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of Regulation G of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The company believes presenting non-GAAP net income and EPS is helpful to analyze financial performance without the impact of unusual items that may obscure trends in the company’s underlying performance. A detailed reconciliation is provided below outlining the differences between these non-GAAP measures and the directly related GAAP measures.     Per Income Before Net Share Income Taxes Income   Earnings per share (EPS) and net income, excluding special items $ 0.31 $ 560 $ 465   Special items: Asbestos settlement (a)   -   (5 )   (3 )   Total EPS and net income $ 0.30 $ 555   $ 462
