LG Announces 2017 Financial Results

Strong Profitability and Highest Annual Sales Ever Led by Performance of Premium Home Appliances and TVs

DUBAI, UAE, Jan. 28, 2018 —  LG Electronics Inc. (LG) today announced record full-year revenues for 2017 of KRW 61.4 trillion (USD 55.4 billion), an increase of 10.9 percent from the previous year, the highest in the company’s history. Full-year 2017 profits of KRW 2.47 trillion (USD 2.23 billion) – the highest profit since 2009 – in-creased 85 percent from 2016 due in large part to strong performance by premium home appliances and TVs. Fourth-quarter 2017 revenues grew 15 percent versus 2016 to KRW 16.96 trillion (USD 15.3 billion), generating strong operating profits of KRW 366.8 billion (USD 330.9 million).

The LG Home Appliance & Air Solutions Company reported full-year 2017 revenues of 19.23 trillion (USD 17.34 billion), a 11 percent increase from the previous year, reflect-ing strong demand for premium products such as TWINWash washing machines, In-staView refrigerators and energy-efficient home appliances.

Fourth-quarter 2017 reve-nues of 4.33 trillion (USD 3.91 billion) rose 7 percent from the same period the previous year, with sales in Korea up 27 percent year-over-year. Quarterly operating income declined to KRW 80.7 billion (USD 72.8 million) because of increased marketing ex-penses related to LG SIGNATURE, infrastructure investments in North America and R&D expenditures related to AI appliances and robots.

The LG Home Entertainment Company reported full-year revenues of KRW 18.67 tril-lion (USD 16.85 billion), a 7 percent increase from the previous year. Strong full-year operating profit of KRW 1.57 trillion (USD 1.41 billion) reflected the continued growth in demand of premium LG OLED and UHD TV products.

Fourth-quarter 2017 sales were strong, up 14 percent year-over-year to KRW 5.48 trillion (USD 4.94 billion), thanks to increasing demand for LG premium TVs. Operating income for the quarter in-creased 134 percent from the same period 2016 to KRW 383.5 billion (USD 345.96 mil-lion).

The LG Mobile Communications Company posted full-year sales of KRW 11.67 trillion (USD 10.52 billion) despite a challenging marketplace and strong competition from Chinese brands. Fourth-quarter revenues increased to KRW 3.07 trillion (USD 2.77 bil-lion), while the quarterly operating loss narrowed to KRW 213.2 billion (USD 192.33 million) due to strong sales of the LG V30 and other premium smartphones and an im-proved business structure.

The LG Vehicle Components Company posted solid full-year sales of KRW 3.49 trillion (USD 3.15 billion), an increase of nearly 26 percent from the previous year, and quar-terly sales of KRW 856.7 billion (USD 772.8 million), down slightly from the same pe-riod a year earlier. The company’s fourth-quarter 2017 profitability declined due to a temporary decrease in sales in the infotainment business and investments in new busi-ness. Growth of the global electric vehicle market is expected to generate additional demand for components in 2018.
