May 2011
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., May 6, 2011 — Emcore Corp. announced its entrance into a long-term supply agreement with Space Systems/Loral (SS/L) to manufacture and deliver high-efficiency multijunction solar cells for SS/L’s commercial satellite program.

The multiyear contract is the second-largest award in Emcore’s history, it said. The company, a provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the broadband, fiber optic, satellite and terrestrial solar power markets, will produce the solar cells at its Albuquerque manufacturing facilities.

The agreement is subject to certain terms and conditions, including a provision allowing SS/L to terminate the agreement for convenience.
