IQE plc announced that it has concluded successfully the renegotiation of a long-term supply contract with an existing tier 1 customer for the supply of wafer products used in wireless applications.

It will also see an expansion in terms of additional products from its molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) platforms. This contract renewal underlines the strength of the long-term customer relationship that IQE has developed.
