Item 5.01.    Changes in Control of Registrant
(a)        (1)        Registrant Cambridge Display Technology, Inc. (the "Company") experienced a change of control upon the closing of its merger (the "Merger") with Rosy Future Inc. ("Merger Sub"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd. ("Sumitomo"). As a result of the Merger, Sumitomo gained control of the Company. Reference is made to the Registrant's press release dated September 19, 2007, attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
        (2)        The change of control occurred on September 19, 2007, when the Merger of Merger Sub with and into the Company took effect upon the filing of a certificate of merger with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware.
        (3)        Sumitomo owns 100% of the voting securities of the surviving corporation of the Merger.
        (4)        The consideration in the Merger was $12 in cash for each share of the Registrant's common stock, or an aggregate of approximately $285 million. Registrant has appointed Mellon Investor Services LLC as paying agent for this transaction. Mellon Investor Services LLC will make arrangements to contact Registrant's former shareholders to arrange payment of the Merger consideration at $12 per share.
        (6)        Sumitomo borrowed funds under existing general purpose credit facilities to finance the Merger.
        (7)        Pursuant to the merger agreement, the directors of Merger Sub became the directors of the surviving corporation of the Merger.
        (8)        Not applicable.

(b)        Other than the Merger, the registrant is not aware of any arrangements that may result in a change of control of the registrant at a future date.
