SEOUL, Apr. 29, 2021 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) today announced first-quarter 2021 consolidated sales of KRW 18.81 trillion (USD 16.90 billion) and operating profit of KRW 1.52 trillion (USD 1.36 billion) – the highest quarterly results in the company’s history with the 8.1 percent operating profit being a first-quarter record. Compared with the first quarter a year ago, revenues grew by 27.7 percent and profitability soared by 39.1 percent, reflecting very strong demand for LG home appliances and home entertainment products as consumers around the world continue to spend more time at home.

The LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company generated first-quarter sales of KRW 6.71 trillion (USD 6.03 billion), an increase of 23.8 percent from the previous year. Operating profit of KRW 919.90 billion (USD 826.39 million) was 22.1 percent higher than the first quarter last year. For the second consecutive quarter the appliance business division saw significant growth year-on-year in North America and Europe as well as in its home market of South Korea where the rental business is particularly healthy. Profitability was accompanied by stable growth led by strong sales of premium products in North America and Europe. The business unit expects to see continued growth by expanding overseas sales in new products.

The LG Home Entertainment Company recorded sales of KRW 4.01 trillion (USD 3.60 billion) in the first quarter, an increase of 34.9 percent from the same period a year ago. Operating income grew 23.9 percent year-on-year to KRW 403.80 billion (USD 362.75 million), buoyed by strong sales in North America and Europe. Premium products led by OLED and NanoCell TVs continued to experience strong demand as the pandemic effect continued in most of the world. To maintain this success in 2021, LG will continue to enhance its premium product lineup, further expand online sales, optimize resources and streamline asset management.

The LG Mobile Communications Company reported sales in the first quarter of KRW 998.70 billion (USD 897.18 million) with an operating loss of KRW 280.10 billion (USD 251.63 million). Operating loss deteriorated 28 percent from the same quarter a year ago due to the lack of new products in light of the public announcement earlier this month that LG will exit the smartphone business at the end of July. Profit and loss for discontinued operations – including a breakdown of continuing and discontinued operations – will be included in the second quarter results.

The LG Vehicle component Solutions Company achieved first-quarter sales of KRW 1.89 trillion (USD 1.70 billion), an increase of 43.5 percent from the same period last year. Operating loss narrowed to KRW 700 million (USD 629,000), which can be attributed to the recovery of the automotive sector in North America and Europe as well as increased revenues from new projects in the e-Powertrain and infotainment sectors and better cost management.

The LG Business Solutions Company saw improved first-quarter revenues of KRW 1.86 trillion (USD 1.67 billion), an increase of 9.1 percent from a year ago and 23.6 percent higher than the previous quarter largely on the back of strong demand for products such as monitors and PC products in the era of remote working and online learning. Operating profit of KRW 134 billion (USD 120.38 million) declined from the same quarter last year due to the increasing cost of components such as LCD panels and semiconductors.

      Hi All,
       
      i’ve got an OLED 55C1 with webOS 6.0 and a service remote in South America. 
       
      I’ve been able to find working area codes for almost all regions using the service remote based on previous posts and tables. 
       
      Of most use to me were:
      Brazil: 26895 (local DTV transmission settings) /22800 (BR/US DTV transmission settings)
      US: 1843 / 1793 / 22287
      UK/EU/Turkey: 3122
      AU Australia: 767
      JP Japan: 23439
      I’ve also found working codes for China (CN), Taiwan (TW), Hog Kong (HK), Philippines (PH), Australia, NZ & South Asia incl. India (AJ), certain African and Middle Eastern countries (JA or JA ME IL regions: note Israel is not an option even though IL appears in the code) , Canada (CA), Mexico (MX), Panama and Central America (PA), Ecuador (EC), Colombia (CO), Peru (PE), Chile (CL), and Argentina (AR).
      Notably absent were working codes for;
      Israel (IL)
      Korea (KR)
      Russia and CIS countries (RU CIS)
      Eastern Europe (ETC?)
      Does anyone know the working area option service codes for these countries?
      I am mostly interested in working IL and KR codes.
       
      thank you so much!

      Organizational Moves to Consolidate Company’s Capabilities to Create
      Differentiated Customer Value, Accelerate Future Growth Engines

      SEOUL, Nov. 24, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) today announced organizational changes designed to bolster its preparedness for the future. The changes are being implemented primarily to accelerate the company’s future growth engines and enhance its ability to create differentiated customer value and experiences.
      A key piece of LG’s forward-looking strategy is the establishment of the Corporate Customer Experience (CX) Center, which will report directly to LG’s headquarters. The CX Center will be led by executive vice president, Lee Chul-bae, who previously served as head of the Corporate Design Management Center. The main role of the CX Center will be to create a seamless and expanded customer experience. It will also develop strategies and roadmaps to foster greater innovation at every stage of the customer experience journey from product planning and customer service to future business models.
      The CX Center will also encompass the CX Strategy Division, which will be charged with the discovery and promotion of company-wide goals and core tasks, and the LSR Customer Research Center, formerly the Life Soft Research (LSR) Lab.
      LG’s Platform Business Center will play a new role in integrating and organizing LG ThinQ services, responsibilities that were previously distributed across corporate and business headquarters. Established in July 2021, the Platform Business Center has been leading the creation of LG’s fandom based on data. Moving forward, the Center will be headed by LG’s vice president, Jung Ki-hyun, who joined the company in September this year. Jung has had a distinguished career with roles at eBay Korea and Google as well as acting as the CEO of Meta Korea.
      In 2023 and beyond, LG will continue to focus on improving supply chain management (SCM) and augmenting its already-strong Digital Transformation (DX) capabilities. To this end, the company’s Procurement and SCM Management Center has been renamed the Global Operation Center, with the functions and roles of the Production Planning Division transferred from the Production Engineering Research Institute. The Global Operation Center will create synergies across the company’s operations – such as production, purchasing and SCM – through promoting improvements based on DX technologies.
      Aiming to spur further growth through improved organizational performance, LG will strengthen its agile and responsive decision-making system across all four business units.
      Lyu Jae-cheol, head of the Home Appliance & Air Solution (H&A) Company, has been promoted to president in recognition of his success in improving H&A’s performance and product portfolio. An expert in his field, Lyu has worked in various areas of LG’s home appliance business since 1989, including in the R&D and production departments.
      Eun Seok-hyun, head of the Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company, was promoted to vice president. Under his leadership, LG’s vehicle component solutions business has achieved operational stability with an improved profit and loss structure, and has constructed a strong business portfolio encompassing several key future mobility technologies.
      Another of the newly-announced changes, the H&A Company’s “Living Appliance Business’ and “Kitchen Appliance Business” will become the “Living Solution Business” and “Kitchen Solution Business,” respectively. The renaming aligns with LG’s renewed focus on customer experience innovation and points to the greater emphasis the company is placing on the expansion of content and services.
      The Home Entertainment (HE) Company is set to increase its capacity to create customer value by establishing the Indonesia Research and Development Division under the HE R&D Lab Institute to enhance collaboration between overseas R&D and manufacturing bases.
      The VS Company aims to strengthen its capabilities in purchasing, producing and SCM by establishing an operation group that manages the integrated operation of the electric vehicle component business.
      The Business Solutions (BS) Company set up a new EV Charger Business Division directly under the company to accelerate the full-fledged development of EV charging solution business that was launched last year.
      All appointments are effective Dec. 1 with promotions going into effect on the first day of the new year.

      Strong Demand for Premium LG Home Appliances and Auto Parts
      Drives Highest Quarterly Revenue in Company History

      SEOUL, Oct. 28, 2022 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) announced third-quarter 2022 consolidated revenues of KRW 21.2 trillion, an increase of 14.1 percent from the same quarter last year and the highest quarterly revenue in the history of LG Electronics. Operating profit for the third quarter was KRW 746.6 billion, 25.1 percent higher than the same quarter last year.
      For the third quarter, the company recorded growth of revenues driven by increased sales of premium home appliances including new appliance categories and automotive parts. However, considering one-off costs incurred last year, operating profit declined due to weak demand caused by the global economic slowdown.
      The LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company reported revenues of KRW 7.5 trillion in the third quarter, an increase of 5.8 percent from the same quarter last year, recording the highest third-quarter revenue ever for the business unit. Operating profit of KRW 228.3 billion was lower than last year due to increased marketing investments and higher logistics costs. Revenue increase was driven by strong sales of premium appliances including new appliance categories such as hygiene products using steam technology in the key regions of North America and Europe. The business unit plans to continue its momentum by improving competitiveness of premium products and strengthening its mass-tier lineup, along with cost structure management to enhance profitability.
      The LG Home Entertainment Company recorded revenues of KRW 3.7 trillion in the third quarter and an operating loss of KRW 55.4 billion, which reflected higher marketing investments in response to intensified market competition. LG’s Home Entertainment strategy will center on effectively managing marketing expenses and boosting the premium TV segment, in addition to nimble inventory management.
      The LG Vehicle component Solutions Company achieved third-quarter sales of KRW 2.3 trillion, a 45.6 percent increase from the same period in 2021, marking the business unit’s highest quarterly revenue. Third-quarter 2022 operating profit was KRW 96.1 billion. The significantly higher sales were driven by proactively responding to higher demand from automakers with efficient supply chain management. The company will continue to build strong relationships with global automakers and work to increase profitability through efficient cost structure management.
      The LG Business Solutions Company recorded third-quarter revenues of KRW 1.4 trillion with operating loss of KRW 14.4 billion caused by higher raw material costs and increased global logistics costs. Revenues increased 9.7 percent from a year ago largely on the back of recovery of the B2B segment. The company plans to aggressively target the rebounding B2B segment by developing more customized solutions and expanding its product portfolio for stable growth, coupled with stabilizing the supply of major components, actively reducing costs and managing resources more efficiently.

      Sales Growth for Premium LG Home Appliances and Auto Parts

      SEOUL, July 29, 2022 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) announced its highest-ever second-quarter revenues, reflecting strong sales for LG home appliances in key regions and the profitable growth of LG’s vehicle components business as the global automotive industry rebounds.
      LG reported revenues of KRW 19.5 trillion in the second quarter of 2022, 15 percent higher than the same quarter the previous year. Operating profit for the second quarter was KRW 792.2 billion, 12 percent lower than the same quarter last year, largely due to supply chain challenges and higher logistics costs.
      Given the business impact of the evolving state of the pandemic and economic conditions, LG is leveraging its comprehensive business portfolio, expanding sales from premium to mass-tier products and growing business-to-business areas such as auto parts.
      The LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company reported revenues of KRW 8.07 trillion in the second-quarter, first time in LG’s history for a single business unit to exceed quarterly revenues of KRW 8 trillion. Operating profit was KRW 432.2 billion. Revenues increased 18 percent from the second quarter a year ago, mainly driven by stronger sales of premium appliances and new categories such as hygiene products using steam technology in the key regions of North America and Latin America. The business unit plans to continue its momentum by improving competitiveness of premium products and strengthening its mass-tier lineup.
      The LG Home Entertainment Company recorded revenues to KRW 3.46 trillion in the second quarter with operating loss of KRW 18.9 billion reflecting increased marketing investments in response to intensified market conditions. LG’s Home Entertainment strategy will center on effectively managing marketing expenses and growing the premium TV segment, particularly around peak selling seasons including the FIFA World Cup and holiday.
      The LG Vehicle component Solutions Company achieved second-quarter sales of KRW 2.03 trillion, a 19 percent increase from the same period of 2021, leading the business unit to be profitable for the first-time. The significantly higher sales were driven by LG proactively responding to higher demand from automakers with efficient supply chain management. With the cloud of uncertainty created by inflation and geopolitical risks, the company will continue to build strong relationships with global automakers along with strong cost structure management to further improve profitability.
      The LG Business Solutions Company recorded solid second-quarter revenues of KRW 1.54 trillion with operating profit of KRW 14.3 billion. Revenues increased 19 percent from a year ago largely on the back of recovery of the business-to-business segment. The company plans to aggressively target the rebounding B2B segment by developing more customized solutions and expanding its product portfolio for stable growth.
      Discontinued Operations: Second-quarter financial results from LG’s solar panel business, which closed in June as previously announced, are being treated as a loss from discontinued operations.

The appliance business expects to see continued growth by expanding overseas sales in new appliance categories.
      The LG Home Entertainment Company recorded sales of KRW 4.06 trillion (USD 3.38 billion) with an operating profit of KRW 188.40 billion (USD 156.44 million). Sales increased 1.4 percent from the same period a year ago driven by continued demand for premium products including OLED and large-screen TVs in Europe and North America.

      The LG Vehicle component Solutions Company achieved first-quarter sales of KRW 1.88 trillion (USD 1.56 billion). The sales increase of 8.5 percent from the same period last year reflected a preemptive response to shortages of automotive semiconductors.

      The LG Business Solutions Company saw improved first-quarter revenues of KRW 2.02 trillion (USD 1.67 billion), an increase of 23.7 percent from a year ago largely on the back of continued demand for products such as monitors and PC products in the beginning of academic season and recovery of the B2B segment, while product competitiveness and operational efficiencies also improved.
