Yep, Mike, but the dollar amount was insignificant. I think Sharp's plan is to get a few companies that are committed strategically to its success.
As an aside, one "fact" about IGZO is that it was supposed to cheaper than existing backplanes and make LCD more competitive but more importantly help scale OLED. As we sit on the cusp of 2013, IGZO is in use barely at all by Sharp, which is basically going hat in hand trying to convince key players in mobile they need to save it. (And IGZO is currently in use nowhere else I'm aware of.)
