Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition

 

Item 8.01. Voluntary Disclosure of Other Events

 

Effective January 1, 2008, Corning changed its internal reporting structure to better reflect the company’s focus on new business development and later-stage research projects and to provide more transparency on our specialty materials operating segment. As a result, our segment reporting will include the following changes which are in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards 131, “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information:”

 

We will provide separate financial information for the Specialty Materials operating segment. This operating segment was previously included in All Other.

Certain later-stage development projects, such as microreactors and green lasers, now meet the criteria for operating segments and are included in All Other. Spending for these projects was previously part of Exploratory Research and was reported in the reconciliation of reportable segment net income to total net income.

Certain other new product lines now meet the criteria for operating segments and are included in All Other. Spending related to these businesses, such as EPIC® and VITA™ glass, was previously included in our Life Sciences and Display Technologies operating segments, respectively.

 

Our reportable operating segments are now as follows:

 

Display Technologies – manufactures liquid crystal display glass for flat panel displays.

Telecommunications – manufactures optical fiber and cable and hardware and equipment components for the telecommunications industry.

Environmental Technologies – manufactures ceramic substrates and filters for automotive and diesel applications. This reportable operating segment is an aggregation of our Automotive and Diesel operating segments as these two segments share similar economic characteristics, products, customer types, production processes and distribution methods.

Specialty Materials – manufactures products that provide more than 150 material formulations for glass, glass ceramics and fluoride crystals to meet demand for unique customer needs.

Life Sciences – manufactures glass and plastic consumables for scientific applications.

 

All other operating segments that do not meet the quantitative threshold for separate reporting have been grouped as “All Other.” This group is now primarily comprised of development projects and results for new product lines.

 

The following provides historical segment information reflecting these changes for 2007, 2006, and 2005 and quarterly information for 2007.

Many of Corning’s administrative and staff functions are performed on a centralized basis.

See Note 7 (Investments) to the consolidated financial statements.

(4)

Other corporate items include the tax impact of the unallocated amounts and the following significant items:

 

In 2007, a loss of $15 million from the repurchase of $223 million principal amount of our 6.25% Euro notes due 2010 and a credit of $103 million from the release of a valuation allowance on German tax benefits.
