Record Revenues, Strong Profitability Provide Solid Foundation for
Pursuing Mid- to Long-term Growth Through Advancement of Business Portfolio
SEOUL, July 27, 2023 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) today announced second-quarter 2023 consolidated revenue of KRW 20 trillion with operating profit of KRW 741.9 billion.
The company recorded the highest second-quarter revenues in company history. The second-quarter results underscore the success of the company’s strategy to drive continuous growth while strengthening its business competitiveness. The record revenue reflects the company’s actions to fundamentally improve its business structure by pursuing new platform-based service businesses and continuously expanding the business-to-business (B2B) segments. Profitability also was strong, although operating income was 6.3 percent lower than the second quarter last year, primarily due to a one-time second-quarter 2023 provision.
The company plans to drive further profitability improvements by optimizing efficiencies and by preemptively meeting market demands through enhanced demand forecasting and manufacturing competitiveness. LG also plans to continuously strengthen its online brand store and direct-to-consumer businesses.
The LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company generated second-quarter revenues of KRW 7.99 trillion and an operating profit of KRW 600.1 billion. Despite intensified market conditions, the business unit recorded strong profitability on the back of increased sales of high-demand products such as air conditioners and energy efficient heat pump-enabled products. The operating profit increased by 40 percent from the previous year, reflecting efficient cost structure management. The company will leverage its high-efficiency innovations including heat pumps and ESS as demand for green technologies grows in Europe, North America and around the world. At the same time, the company sees the electrification trend as an opportunity for future growth in the HVAC business. In the third quarter, the company will launch new LG ThinQ UP 2.0 home appliances featuring hyper-personalization, subscriptions and services. Certain mass-tier appliance lineups also will be expanded in response to market changes. The company plans to lead a paradigm shift in the home appliance industry by combining service-based business models with differentiated product competitiveness, while continuing efforts to increase efficiencies in production, purchasing and logistics for stable profitability.
The LG Home Entertainment Company recorded second-quarter revenue of KRW 3.15 trillion and an operating profit of KRW 123.6 billion. As challenging business conditions persist for the worldwide consumer electronics industry, the company continued to focus on improving operational efficiency and improving profitability by growing the content and service businesses based on LG’s webOS smart TV platform. The company intends to transform its TV business portfolio into a “media and entertainment service provider” by expanding content, services and advertising in differentiated products. The business unit also intends to solidify LG’s leadership in the ultra-large-screen TV market with the launch of the 97-inch LG SIGNATURE OLED M, the world’s first “wireless” consumer TV with Zero Connect technology. Also driving the premium TV market are expanded sales of the company’s popular new Lifestyle Screens.
The LG Vehicle component Solutions Company‘s second-quarter revenue was KRW 2.66 trillion, the highest second-quarter revenues in company history. However, an operating profit was KRW 89.8 billion excluding non-recurring expenses such as one-off provision, achieving the highest second-quarter operating profit in terms of business performance. But after the company’s operating profit margin included the one-time provision of KRW 151 billion, related to General Motors’ recall of the Chevy Bolt EV, it resulted an operating loss of KRW 61.2 billion. This provision reflects the increases in material costs that occurred during the recall period.
The business unit will continue its growth momentum by focusing on expanding its high value-added and high-performance business. The company’s order backlog is expected to reach KRW 100 trillion by the end of the year, leading to sequential sales conversion resulting in profitable growth. In particular, in terms of profitability, it is positive that the company is experiencing economies of scale from sales expansion. As steady increase of electric vehicle demand is expected in the future, the company will actively seek new opportunities in future mobility areas, such as autonomous driving, software solutions and content, while securing stable profitability by expanding the portion of high value-added and high-performance products supplied to key automotive customers around the world.
The LG Business Solutions Company saw improved second-quarter revenues of KRW 1.33 trillion with an operating profit of KRW 2.6 billion. Both revenue and operating profit declined slightly from the same period last year due to the persistent softening of demand for IT products. From the third quarter, demand for IT products is expected to show a gradual recovery compared to the first half. In the midst of this, LG plans to actively expand sales of monitors and laptops equipped with gaming features and OLED displays. In the commercial display business, the company will seek opportunities for further growth with customized solutions for various vertical markets, from hospitality and health care to education, retail and corporate.

LG reported revenues of KRW 19.9 trillion in the second quarter of 2023, the highest second-quarter revenue, with operating profit of KRW 892.7 billion, the second highest second-quarter operating profit in the company’s history.

The LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company recorded strong profitability on the back of increased sales of high demand products such as air conditioners and energy efficient heat pump-enabled products as well as energy storage systems.

The LG Vehicle component Solutions Company is continuing the growth momentum supported by high order backlog of auto parts and stable supply chain management. At the same time, the company’s growth was positively impacted by a stable business portfolio made up of the 3 key areas of infotainment, e-powertrain and lighting solutions. The LG Business Solutions Company is accelerating the expansion of the customer experience to discover potential customer demand by introducing the world’s first commercial television sets to feature Apple AirPlay technology support for hotel TVs.
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.

Imagine yourself fully immersed in the final scene of a movie. What do you see? The careful arrangement of objects, delicate shades of color and every visual element artfully come together to portray a distinct message. This is known as ‘mise-en-scène’ in the film industry.
Mise-en-scène, which was previously only considered by iconic directors, is firmly on the minds of designers at the LG HE Design Lab, who pursue product designs that help people discover the unique beauty in everyday life. Taking a customer experience-focused approach, the team strives to produce versatile designs offering value for diverse needs and preferences – a myriad of lifestyles, packed into one TV.
Minimizing a TV’s visual elements help it effortlessly blend into its surroundings, thereby giving users greater freedom to inject their unique personality and style into their living space. With exactly this in mind, the “Gallery Design” of the LG OLED evo G Series, a flush-to-wall form factor that resembles art gallery picture frames, was born.
One of the innovations which makes the Gallery Design possible is a special recessed area at the back of the product which allows the TV to seamlessly rest against the wall when combined with LG’s dedicated wall bracket – differentiating the G series from most premium flat-screen TVs, which have protruding back covers to make room for connections and back-firing speakers.
Making the LG OLED evo G Series even more of a minimalist’s dream, a razor-thin bezel frame made of sleek, elegantly finished aluminum adds a touch of refinement to the home décor, as well as unlocking immersion of the highest degree so that movie and game nights are always unforgettable.
What’s more, the LG OLED evo G Series’ Zero-gap design allows its wall bracket and cables to be stored out of sight for a sleek and clean look. With all the drab TV accessories neatly tucked away, users can finally enjoy their living environment’s aesthetics to the full. This incredible design fully demonstrates the LG HE Design Lab’s efforts to make installation easier while expanding use cases.
According to LG’s product designers, all these innovative form factors were born from a unique design approach which aims to conceal, rather than expose. “We tend to believe that designs exist to be detected with the user’s eyes – but more often, obscurity is the superior approach,” explained Jang Yong-hun, senior product designer at the LG HE Design Lab’s Display Design Team. “In the case of LG OLED TVs, visual elements which easily stand out are carefully hidden from view in order to deliver the utmost level of content immersion.”
LG’s customer experience-driven approach showcases the boundless evolution of TV design, seamlessly emerging with increasingly diverse lifestyles. Unveiled at CES 2023, the 97-inch LG SIGNATURE OLED M TV features a wireless real-time video and audio transmission technology to eliminate cable clutter, creating endless new ways for homeowners to redefine their space. Leading the way for a reimagined form of home entertainment with new levels of convenience, the LG OLED M and its wireless solution stand out by far among TVs released to date.
LG’s designers are conceiving new innovations to ensure the company’s TVs complement every part of your prized home décor. So next time you rearrange your abode, take the full creative rein and become the director of your own scene.
