Corning reports fourth-quarter and full-year 2023 financial results

Corning Incorporated has announced its fourth-quarter and full-year 2023 results and provided its outlook for first-quarter 2024.

Wendell P. Weeks, chairman and chief executive officer, said, “Overall, our results in the quarter – and throughout 2023 – demonstrate that we continue to make solid progress advancing our market leadership, strengthening our profitability and improving our cash-flow generation even in the lower-demand environment we’ve experienced.”

Weeks continued, “We are entering 2024 operationally strong, and we have an opportunity to increase our sales by more than (USD) 3 billion in the medium term as our markets normalize. As we capture that growth, we expect to deliver powerful incremental profit and cash flow – which is a terrific opportunity for our shareholders.”
