by Acquiring Both Functional Safety and Cybersecurity Certifications

LG-Functional-Security-Verification-1-60

SEOUL, March 30, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) is the first player to meet international testing standards for functional safety and cybersecurity management for vehicles. LG annually updates required certifications for its hardware and software solutions for electric vehicle components through leading global testing organization, TÜV Rheinland.

A respected player in the rapidly growing EV components industry, LG has consistently complied with international regulations and participated in key certification programs. To lead the field of vehicle safety, LG is committed to securing the technical capabilities both at the employee and the organizational level.

Recently, LG research engineer Kim Min-kyu obtained the Automotive Functional Safety Expert qualification, becoming the second individual ever to do so since the qualification program was established in 2011. Also, LG acquired functional safety certification for its ADAS front camera in the ‘4M’ (Material, Method, Machine, Man) categories in 2022. The company’s vehicle components also comply with the Cyber ​​Security Management System (CSMS) – the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe’s (UNECE) regulation No. 155 (UN R155).

“With the rising importance of vehicle security and safety regulations in the global auto industry, acquiring certification for our auto components and technologies is key to maintaining competitiveness,” said Eun Seok-hyun, President of LG Vehicle component Solutions (VS) Company. “LG will continue to comply with the latest standards and grow its capabilities in safety and security to provide our customers with even more reliable solutions.”

“We congratulate LG on producing Asia’s first Functional Safety Expert, an achievement that reflects the company’s outstanding, across-the-board performance in acquiring top industry certifications and qualifications,” said Frank Juettner, CEO and director of TÜV Rheinland Korea. “Obtaining the latest certifications, including ISO/SAE 21434, demonstrates LG’s commitment to providing its customers and partners with the highest level of product, system safety and security.”

LG has built stellar track records maintaining its innovation at the highest level of quality and reliability. Already in 2018, LG secured technical certification for Functional Safety Management (FSM) in infotainment development, and in 2021, its Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) front camera passed assessments for functional safety (product and processes) based on ISO 26262 – an international functional safety standard for the development of electrical and electronic systems for vehicles.

LG also plans to lead future trends in autonomous driving, where functional safety will be centered on the fast-growing area of Safety of The Intended Functionality (SOTIF). SOTIF is becoming increasingly important as the entire auto industry seeks to incorporate and expand the use of various advanced technologies in their vehicles, including artificial intelligence (AI), high-definition maps, sensor data interfaces and cybersecurity applications.

      Company Pushes Boundaries With Innovative Business Models
      While Balancing Core Operations and Future Growth to Create New Opportunities

      SEOUL, April 25, 2024 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) announced first-quarter 2024 consolidated revenue of KRW 21.09 trillion and operating profit of KRW 1.33 trillion. The company’s home appliance sector demonstrated global leadership, achieving record-breaking revenue and double-digit operating profit margins. The EV components sector, a key driver of future growth, continued its steady expansion. Both the TV and business solutions sectors experienced year-on-year sales growth and returned profits compared to the previous quarter.
      Despite navigating challenging macroeconomic conditions such as high commodity prices, volatile exchange rates, rising interest rates and delayed demand recovery, LG achieved its highest-ever total revenue for a first quarter. This milestone underscores the effectiveness of implementing sustainable business models like subscription services and leveraging growth opportunities in the promising B2B sector. LG’s emphasis on differentiating features such as AI, energy efficiency and customer-centric design has strengthened its competitiveness in the premium market. Furthermore, the strategic approach of offering diverse product lineups and flexible pricing structures enabled the company to successfully navigate polarized demand trends.
      Operating profit surpassed KRW 1 trillion for the fifth consecutive year, showcasing LG’s strong performance in the face of intensifying market competition. The company’s focus on content/service businesses and direct-to-consumer sales via the Online Brand Shop (OBS) has fueled qualitative growth. Efforts to stabilize raw material and logistics costs, coupled with production location flexibility, have further bolstered profitability.
      The LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company generated first-quarter revenue of KRW 8.6 trillion and an operating profit of KRW 940.3 billion. This represents a notable 7.2 percent increase in revenue compared to the same period last year, setting a new record for first-quarter performance. Operating profits reached the second-highest level in the company’s history, with an operating profit margin of 10.9 percent, underscoring the company’s exceptional global competitiveness.
      Driven by its core technologies, particularly in motors and compressors, LG’s home appliance business continues to innovate within a mature market landscape. With a commitment to industry leadership, LG is pioneering transformative initiatives such as product subscription services and advancing the concept of ‘Affectionate Intelligence’ appliances. These innovations are tailored to empathize with and address customer needs effectively. Moreover, LG is strategically expanding its B2B ventures, including HVAC and built-in solutions, to capitalize on emerging growth opportunities.
      The LG Vehicle component Solutions Company reported first-quarter revenue of KRW 2.66 trillion and an operating profit of KRW 52 billion, reflecting an 11.5 percent year-on-year revenue increase. The ongoing conversion of backlog orders into revenue is progressing steadily. Despite ongoing investments in overseas production sites to fulfill new orders and meet OEM demands, the company has maintained stable profitability, benefiting from economies of scale resulting from revenue expansion.
      While there are expectations of a slight slowdown in the recent growth of EV demand, the demand for high-value-added EV components continues to rise steadily. LG is proactively addressing these market dynamics by developing a balanced portfolio, spanning from in-vehicle infotainment to powertrains and headlamps. The company aims to ensure sustained revenue growth and a stable profit base by actively adapting to these market shifts.
      The LG Home Entertainment Company reported first-quarter revenue of KRW 3.49 trillion and an operating profit of KRW 132.2 billion. This represents a 4.2 percent increase in revenue compared to the same period last year, driven by a resurgence in TV demand in Europe and the successful launch of new 2024 models. The positive operating profit was fueled by the robust performance of the webOS content/service business, alongside traditional product sales. Despite challenges such as rising LCD panel prices, the company effectively managed profitability.
      Looking ahead, a gradual recovery in the TV market demand is anticipated in the second half of the year. LG’s strategy focuses on leveraging its globally leading OLED TV and premium LCD QNED TV offerings while continuously enhancing the profitability of the webOS platform business, which is poised for rapid growth.
      The LG Business Solutions Company reported first-quarter revenue of KRW 1.57 trillion, marking a 6.5 percent increase year-over-year, and an operating profit of KRW 12.8 billion. The launch of new LG gram laptops, featuring on-device AI and timed for graduation and enrollment seasons, garnered positive market feedback. In addition, sales of commercial display products, including electronic whiteboards and LED signage, experienced growth. While operating profit returned to positive territory from the previous quarter, there was a slight decrease compared to the same period last year, attributed to factors such as rising component prices and intensified competition.
      This year, the overall IT market is expected to maintain similar demand levels to the previous year, with a slight growth anticipated in the commercial display segment. There is an expected increase in demand for high-spec IT products like gaming monitors and LED signage. LG aims to lead the market with strategic IT products tailored to customer needs, integrating gaming-specific features and OLED displays, alongside premium LED products. Efforts to proactively develop promising new businesses such as robotics and EV charging continue to drive future growth prospects.

      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.
