The recent rise in share price is a reaction to the video released on May 27 in conjunction with the annual shareholders meeting. Anyone interested in the company should watch it and peruse the rest of the website.

My summary of what makes LWLG so compelling that I've held shares for 15 years:
  • 20+ years of development has produced chromophores (dye molecules) that react to electricity by emitting photons (electro-optical effect). The photons can be regulated to encode data in a binary manner to convey information, similar to electrons passing through a silicon chip. Photons are faster and require less energy to produce.
  • LWLG embeds the chromophore in a polymer (plastic) substrate in configurations similar to existing products that use different chemistry, and that are less stable, more expensive, and require more power to operate than LWLG's materials.
  • The potential applications for the technology are numerous, but LWLG is concentrating on modulators for data transmission in data centers. Modulators translate digital information in the form of electrical signals into light to be transmitted through optical fibers.
  • LWLG has proven that it's modulators can transmit data at speeds faster than any other commercially available product. In the recent video, it is made clear that they have materials that exceed the speed that can be measured by existing equipment. LWLG worked with an equipment manufacturer to develop the current 'state of the art' - it must now be extended to higher speeds.
  • LWLG has developed packaging and manufacturing methods that allow their devices to be layered on to silicon chips using existing fabrication technology.
  • The modulators require a laser as a light source. Current products also require a driver, a separate component to provide power to the laser. LWLG's modulators use less power, and are therefore 'driverless'. They don't need the extra component to provide extra power. This is a huge advantage.
  • They are working with chip fabs to develop "PDKs", production development kits. These are specs foundries can use to integrate the tech into their manufacturing processes.
  • All of this tech is well protected by an extensive IP portfolio.
  • Much of the details of the development of the tech has been withheld due to NDAs with potential customers. In the video, it is explained that sometime 'soon' that should change, with joint PRs with NDA partners.
  • When the video was released, LWLG had met all the requirements for listing on the NASDAQ except for share price. The recent rise over $4 meets the requirement. Uplisting to the NASDAQ should be announced in the near future.
