In 2017, the company achieved sales of KRW 239.58 trillion and operating profit of KRW 53.65 trillion. 4th quarter sales grew approximately 24% compared to last year due to continued memory market upturn and sales increase of flexible OLED panels.

Operating profit also rose 5.9 trillion won year-on-year basis, as the profitability of the semiconductor business improved significantly. The operating profit margin also reached 23%.


4th quarter results were affected by stronger KRW over US dollar as well as other major currencies including with a negative impact of about KRW 660 billion compared to previous quarter.

In addition, special bonus payment for semiconductor employees also affected earnings.
