Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Samsung Electronics sees 44% drop in profit - Samsung Electronics sees 44% drop in profit
Fri, October 24 2008 | 1:56AM | PermaLink Feedback?
Samsung Electronics posted a 44 percent drop in third-quarter net profit Friday as the global slowdown hurt its businesses, but operating profit beat estimates as semiconductors showed some resilience. Still, the future looks challenging for the world's top maker of memory chips and liquid crystal displays, or LCDs, which is facing a lengthy downturn in the once-reliable memory market and a rapid margin deterioration in the flat-screen sector, along with slowing demand for all consumer electronics. Samsung's display division margins fell to 8 percent from the second quarter's 21 percent amid a rapid deterioration of the market due to oversupply. Samsung, second only to Nokia in the cellphone market, sold 51.8 million mobile phones, up sharply from 45.7 million in the April-June quarter.
