lg chem ltd (051910) Key Developments

LG Chem Announces Financial Results for the Second Quarter Ended 30 June 2014; Provides Earnings Outlook for the Third Quarter of 2014

LG Chem announced financial results for the second quarter ended 30 June 2014. Net sales declined marginally, by 8% year on year to KRW 5.87 trillion. The company's operating income was down 28.3% year on year to KRW 359.6 billion, while net income fell 43.4% year on year to KRW 226.8 billion. During the quarter, overall profitability of the energy solutions segment improved due to increased sales of lithium-ion batteries. However, the primary cause of decline in overall net profit was weak performance in the petrochemicals segment, owing to the stronger won and slow recovery of the sluggish petrochemical industry. Nevertheless, decrease in the company's net income was partially offset by the IT and electronic materials segment along with the energy solutions segment. For the third quarter of 2014, the company expects increased demand for premium products such as stepped batteries in the Energy Solutions segment, following new product launches by customers. The company projects growth in batteries for electric vehicle (EVs) to accelerate with the rising number of new OEM customers in automotive industry, most recently with Audi. Furthermore, the company expects gradual recovery of the petrochemicals industry, as it plans to mainly focus on sharpening competitive edge in the segment by enhancing differentiated product streams and expanding sales of high-value-added products. Improvements in overall profitability of the IT and electronic materials segment is also expected due to additional cost reductions.
