Samsung Combines Display & Semiconductor Businesses

According to the Wall Street Journal, Samsung will combine its flat-panel display and semiconductor businesses into a single unit. What’s the reason? Well, Samsung didn’t have too good of profits during its first quarter, and mediocre performance during its second quarter.

However, when you combine the two businesses, the semiconductor aspect of Samsung made up 70% of Samsung’s operating profits and 44% total of the company’s revenue. Those are some pretty impressive statistics, and allows its flat-panel display business to piggy back off the semiconductor manufacturing successes.

LG Announces Company’s Strong Quarter

The company believes that an aggressive product line-up in televisions will continue to fuel profits. The company saw its first operating profit in early of 2010. LG feels confident that the Cinema 3D TV range and its Smart TVs will be the driving force of product sales.
