To Our Shareholders:
2018 was a terrific year for Corning. We grew core sales and earnings per share. We returned cash to shareholders through stock buybacks and a double-digit dividend increase. We won new customers. And we launched new products that continue our track record of innovation. Most importantly, we have positioned the company for sustainable, long-term growth by delivering on our Strategy and Capital Allocation Framework.
