      Company Achieves Record-breaking
      First-Quarter Revenues by Surpassing Boundaries Once Again

      SEOUL, Apr. 5, 2024 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) today announced its preliminary earnings results for the first quarter of 2024, reporting a consolidated revenue of KRW 21.09 trillion and operating profit of KRW 1.33 trillion.
      The company marks the highest first-quarter revenue in its history. The implementation of innovative business models such as subscriptions, along with the expansion of B2B operations, have proven to be crucial in overcoming challenges like the delayed recovery of market demand. From a product perspective, LG’s strategy to enhance the product range and price coverage of volume zone lineups, in response to market demand polarization, has demonstrated significant effectiveness. This strategy, combined with the company’s dedication to sustaining strong competitiveness in the premium market by emphasizing unique factors like AI, has played a substantial role in achieving the impressive figure.
      The first-quarter operating profit has surpassed KRW 1 trillion for the fifth consecutive year since 2020. The company’s content and service business, which leverages its hundreds of millions of devices distributed globally as a platform, along with D2C sales, are driving qualitative growth and enhancing the contribution to the company’s operating profit. Measures such as resource allocation, stabilization of raw material and logistics costs and ensuring the flexibility of the global production operation system have also played a part in maintaining stable profitability.
      In the home appliance & air solution business, new products like the LG Styler clothing care system, LG WashCombo All-in-One and LG WashTower have led growth, receiving positive market feedback. The strategy of expanding the volume zone lineup to cater to regional characteristics and shifts in demand in international markets has been successful. The company is also growing its B2B business, including HVAC, built-in appliances and component solutions.
      LG aims to expedite the paradigm shift in home appliances by introducing subscription services that allow customers to choose appliances and product management services that suit their lifestyles. Also, as AI expands its role in customer electronics, the company is incorporating its Affectionate Intelligence into its devices and services, aiming to provide a unique customer experience that goes beyond basic AI, offering more thoughtfulness and empathy towards customers.
      In the vehicle component solutions business, a secured backlog of orders is driving gradual sales growth. The order backlog is expected to exceed KRW 100 trillion in the first half of this year, increasing from the mid-90 trillion range at the end of last year. For In-vehicle Infotainment, a major contributor to sales, the emphasis this year is on bolstering software capabilities and broadening the spectrum of unique products. LG Magna e-Powertrain, having achieved profitability last year, is poised to accelerate growth by securing additional orders from the European and Asian markets. Concurrently, ZKW, a subsidiary specializing in vehicle headlamps, is strategizing to develop next-generation product capabilities while optimizing its business structure.
      The home entertainment business is continuing to experience meaningful growth with the launch of new 2024 OLED TV lineup with enhanced AI performance as well as the expansion of webOS content and services. Starting this year, the company will actively deploy dual-track strategy driven by both the top-tier OLED lineup and the QNED lineup to lead the premium market. Furthermore, the webOS platform business will be developed into a scalable, high-profit business this year.
      The business solutions sector continues to innovate customer experience through strategic products such as the new LG gram that comes with the latest on-device AI functions and gaming monitors. This year, the company will position itself with a competitive lineup of the commercial displays and continue to invest in future growth engines such as robots and electric vehicle charging, accelerating the early deployment of promising new businesses.
      These figures are tentative consolidated earnings based on K-IFRS provided as a service to investors prior to LG Electronics’ final earnings results, including net profit. Details regarding each division will be announced officially later this month.

      LG StanbyME Go, a portable 27-inch screen built into a case, was recognized as both an Innovative Product and Winner at this year’s Red Dot Awards. Complete with an integrated Dolby Atmos sound system, HDMI connectivity and webOS, StanbyME Go is the complete anywhere-you-want entertainment experience. LG StanbyME Go is the ideal mobile entertainment screen with its 40W speakers and articulating arm can position the screen in three different ways.

      Texas Production Factory to Solidify Company’s Position
      as a Trusted EV Charging Solutions Provider

      SEOUL, Jan. 15, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) has expanded its electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions infrastructure, opening its first EV charger production factory in the U.S. The new, 5,500-square-meter facility, located in Fort Worth, Texas, will focus on delivering chargers for the North American market and is expected to have an annual capacity of more than 10,000 units.
      The factory is LG’s first EV charger production site outside of South Korea, where the company last year opened an EV charger manufacturing operation under its affiliated company HiEV Charger.
      LG chose to establish its U.S.-based EV charger production factory in Texas for multiple, strategic reasons, such as the ability to utilize existing facilities. The state also boasts excellent logistics and transportation networks and is home to major operations for companies in industries ranging from automobile manufacturing to finance.
      In 2023, when announcing the company’s future vision, LG CEO William Cho noted that ‘Electrification’ would be a major driver of rapid mid- to long-term growth. LG’s entry into the U.S. EV charging market will enable the company to address rising local demand and discover new business opportunities. Strategically and philosophically aligned with several of the energy and environmental goals set out in the U.S. government’s Inflation Reduction Act, the sustainability-focused company is committed to bolstering its EV charger business, and has commenced plans to grow its presence around the world, including in Asia and Europe.
      LG has started assembling 11kW chargers at its Texas factory and will begin production of 175kW fast chargers within the first half of the year. LG also aims to introduce a 350kW ultra-fast charger in 2024, expanding its EV charger lineup to meet the varied needs of customers, especially those operating in areas such as commercial travel and long-distance transportation.
      The company is quickly earning a reputation as a reliable EV charger provider thanks to its manufacturing capabilities, quality control and after-sales service. Through emphasizing its differentiated offerings, including control and advertising solutions, LG is confident that the EV charging solutions business will continue to improve its market position over the mid- to long-term.
      Furthermore, LG intends to tap into the diverse EV charging demands of various businesses and facilities, such as hotels, shopping malls, retail stores, gas stations and parking garages, to drive future growth. LG’s B2B experience in the U.S. hotel TV and digital signage sectors provides valuable insight that is expected to aid in the U.S. expansion of the company’s EV charging solutions business.
      The global EV charging market is expected to grow to USD 186 billion by 2030, according to Roland Berger, a global management consulting firm. The market expansion is being driven by several factors, including the ongoing implementation of regulations aimed at protecting the environment and the continuous progress of vehicle electrification.
      “By establishing our EV charger production factory in Texas, we will be able to actively respond to the rapidly growing demand for EV infrastructure in the U.S.,” said Jang Ik-hwan, president of the LG Business Solutions Company. “LG is dedicated to delivering uncompromising quality and will offer customers reliable EV charging solutions that combine efficient charger units with advanced control systems.”

      LG SIGNATURE OLED T 4K Marks the Beginning of an
      Exciting New Chapter in LG’s Ongoing Legacy of TV Innovation

      LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) is unveiling the world’s first wireless transparent OLED TV at CES 2024. The LG SIGNATURE OLED T is a true technological marvel, combining a transparent 4K OLED screen and LG’s wireless video and audio transmission technology to transform the screen experience in ways that have never been possible before. The OLED T unlocks a world of near-limitless potential, giving users the unprecedented freedom to meticulously curate their living spaces. This is complemented by the class-leading picture quality and performance of LG OLED, powered by the new α (Alpha) 11 AI processor. A genuine game changer, LG’s transparent OLED is the winner of five CES 2024 Innovation Awards, including a Best of Innovation honor.
      LG SIGNATURE OLED T liberates users from a dominant black screen that competes with the décor in their home. Maintaining its 77-inch screen size, OLED T and its innovative transparent display seamlessly harmonizes with its environment. Practically invisible when turned off, it blends into the environment and frees users from the long-standing problem of what to do with the ‘big black screen.’ The TV’s beautiful see-through screen also helps to make one’s space feel larger, providing a sense of openness.
      The unique LG OLED T brings with it many new possibilities, from where it can be placed in the room, to the kinds of user experiences that LG can now deliver.
      Its transparent OLED screen removes the usual constraints that come with conventional TVs. No longer does the TV have to be placed against the wall. Instead, users can place the OLED T in the middle of the room to become a divider or prop it against the window without blocking the view outside. The included Zero Connect Box, which leverages LG’s cutting-edge wireless transmission technology to send 4K images and sound to the OLED T, also enables users to place their TV anywhere, regardless of where the electrical outlets are located in the room. With no cables between the Zero Connect Box and the OLED T, users can enjoy a clean, cable-free viewing environment.
      What’s more, the modular design of the LG OLED T facilitates diverse installation methods. The OLED T comes in stand-alone, against-the-wall or wall-mount options. Customers can further customize by adding standing or floating shelves on either or both sides of the screen to best suit their unique tastes and preferences.
      LG’s transparent OLED lets owners discover new forms of entertainment and use via its dual viewing experiences: transparent and opaque. The OLED T becomes a transparent digital canvas for showcasing artwork, videos or photos with the Always-On-Display (AOD) feature. Content displayed on the transparent screen appears to float in air, yet simultaneously fuses with the surrounding space to create a compelling and atmospheric visual effect. Another option is the T-Bar feature that offers a helpful info-ticker running along the lower part of the screen. The T-Bar displays news alerts, weather updates or the title of songs being played while the rest of the screen presents a clear, unobstructed view of the space behind it.
      For viewing in picture perfect OLED, simply click a button to raise the contrast screen. In this way, users can instantly switch to take full advantage of LG OLED’s enhanced picture quality through the new α (Alpha) 11 AI processor with 4-times greater AI performance. This provides a 70 percent improvement in graphic performance and a 30 percent faster processing speed compared to its predecessor. OLED T offers the best of both transparent and vibrant-color screen experiences with just a click of a button.
      “An incredible feat of consumer-driven innovation, LG SIGNATURE OLED T offers brand-new screen experiences plus the picture quality and performance of our award-winning OLED technology,” said Park Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “LG’s transparent OLED gives customers greater freedom to curate their living spaces, completely redefining what’s possible and pointing the way to an exciting future for the television industry.”
      The stunning LG SIGNATURE OLED T will be on show during CES 2024 from January 9-12 at the company’s booth (#16008, Las Vegas Convention Center). For more information on LG products unveiled at CES 2024, please visit
