Samsung confirms sharp drop in Q3 profit

Thursday 30 October 2014 | 08:21 CET | News
Samsung Electronics confirmed a drop in third-quarter sales to KRW 47.45 trillion from KRW 59.08 trillion a year ago. Operating profit more than halved to KRW 4.06 trillion, and net profit fell to KRW 4.22 trillion from KRW 8.24 trillion in the same period of 2013. As warned earlier by the company, the weak results were due mainly to competitive pressure on its mobile phones business. The mobile division recorded sales of KRW 24.58 trillion, down from KRW 36.57 trillion a year ago and 14 percent less than in the second quarter. Operating profit from the activities plunged to KRW 1.75 trillion
