      SEOUL, Jan. 8, 2024 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) today announced its preliminary earnings results for the fourth quarter and full-year of 2023.
      LG reported an annual consolidated revenue of KRW 84 trillion, marking the third consecutive year of achieving the highest annual revenue, and an annual operating profit of KRW 3.5 trillion. These figures demonstrate a resilient business performance, approaching the results observed during the prior period of pent-up demand, despite challenges posed by delayed demand recovery from the economic slowdown as well as heightened market competition.
      The historic high in annual revenue can be attributed to the robust fundamentals of LG’s core businesses and the growth experienced in B2B sectors. Notably, the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of LG’s revenue over the last three years stands at over 13 percent. Additionally, the annual operating profit demonstrated a solid performance, reaching levels comparable to the preceding year.
      LG’s effective management performance in the face of a challenging external environment is particularly noteworthy, setting it apart within the industry. Strategic efforts to enhance the business portfolio, including the early identification of market turning points to drive high growth in B2B sectors, played a pivotal role. Business model innovation, such as diversifying from hardware-oriented businesses to platform-based service business, also contributed to maintaining stable profitability.
      In the home appliance & air solution business, LG is expected to have achieved an annual revenue milestone of KRW 30 trillion. Strategic market approaches, such as expanding volume zone lineups while retaining premium leadership to address demand polarization, played a key role in this success. B2B expansion in areas like HVAC, components and built-in appliances further contributed to overall growth. Going forward, LG will concentrate efforts on strengthening core competencies in product and manufacturing competitiveness, while accelerating changes in business models, including direct-to-consumer (D2C) and subscriptions, to prepare for the future. The company will also accelerate efforts to evolving its smart home solutions, reflecting the value of “Zero Labor Home,” by expanding the lineup of home appliances embedded with operating systems.
      The vehicle component solutions business is anticipated to have exceeded KRW 10 trillion in annual revenue within a decade of its establishment, becoming one of LG’s core businesses. The average operating rate of production facilities has surpassed 100 percent since last year, driving growth. Starting this year, LG will intensify efforts to secure capabilities in the evolving trend of software-defined vehicles while aiming for growth in volume. Leveraging differentiation technologies accumulated in home appliances and IT, the company plans to enhance in-vehicle experiences while accelerating the efficiency and synergy of the entire business, including EV components and headlamps.
      Despite challenges in key markets like Europe, the home entertainment business experienced meaningful growth in webOS content and services. This year, the expansion of the webOS ecosystem will extend beyond TVs to encompass smart monitors, in-vehicle infotainment and other areas, further broadening the business scope. From a product perspective, LG will significantly strengthen both the top-tier OLED lineup and the QNED lineup, following a dual-track strategy to lead the premium market.
      The business solutions company is concentrating on the early commercialization of key areas such as EV charging and robotics. As a leader in LG’s B2B business, the segment aims to accelerate the shift from supplying single products to integrating and providing adjacent solutions. With a significant proportion of new businesses within the organization, investments are prioritized for future preparations rather than short-term management performance.
      It is important to note that these figures represent tentative consolidated earnings based on the Korean International Financial Reporting Standards and are provided as a service to investors before LG Electronics releases its final earnings results. The official announcement of confirmed results, including the net profit for the year 2023 and the management performance of each Company, is scheduled for later this month.

      LG’s efforts to upgrade business portfolio to expand the proportion of its B2B businesses, including automotive parts and HVAC, based on its deep understanding and experience of customers accumulated through years in the consumer-facing business have also led to continued growth.
      In addition to the rapidly growing B2B business, the company continuously boosted its B2C business by combining products with content and services and expanding high-demand lineups based on the competitiveness of premium products such as LG OLED TVs and LG Objet Collection.
      In July, LG CEO William Cho announced his future vision to create customer value, secure future growth opportunities and transform into a smart life solution company that connects and expand spaces and experiences beyond home appliances. The positive results of the third-quarter despite the economic depression and maintaining growth momentum is evidence that the portfolio transformation to achieve the company’s future vision is progressing smoothly.
      LG also made continuous efforts to improve business structure and apply digital transformation across the company to innovate customer experiences, which have led to the maximizing of efficiency of the entire value chain, including purchasing, manufacturing, logistics and sales.
      The LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company has seen significant growth in the B2B area with its HVAC solutions. The company aims to further expand its air conditioning business with heat pumps and ESS in response to the growing demand for eco-friendly and high-efficiency products in North America and Europe. And, launched in the third-quarter, LG ThinQ UP 2.0 – a smart home innovation that combines home appliances and subscription services – has already received positive responses from customers and is leading change in the home appliance paradigm.
      The LG Vehicle component Solutions Company continued its rapid growth trend in the third-quarter based on an order backlog expected to reach KRW 100 trillion by the end of the year and stable supply chain management, with the pace of growth also accelerating. In terms of profitability, there is also an economic effect of scale due to the expansion of sales. The company is expected to exceed KRW 10 trillion in annual sales for the first time this year. LG is also speeding up the establishment of regional production bases in response to the growing demand to convert to electric vehicles from major global customers.
      The LG Home Entertainment Company is accelerating its business transition from a product-based business to a media and entertainment platform as the content and service business continues to grow. To this end, in addition to expanding collaboration with various content providers, the company has recently started upgrading TV operating systems for the first time in the industry to expand the content experience of customers. The number of TVs powered by webOS, the foundation of the content and service business, is expected to reach 300 million units by 2026.
      The LG Business Solutions Company continues to innovate customer experience with premium IT lineups such as commercial displays and foldable laptops that provide customized solutions, while also rapidly fostering the electric vehicle charging business, one of LG’s new growth engines.
      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.
