Samsung earns significantly less due to weaker chip demand

The weakening world economy has clearly left its mark on the South Korean electronics group Samsung. It is the first time in eight years that profit from ordinary operations has fallen below five trillion won in a quarter.

Operating profit in the fourth quarter of 2022 is likely to have declined 69 percent year-on-year to 4.3 trillion won (about 3.2 billion euros), the market-leading maker of smartphones and memory chips said in its earnings outlook on Friday.

Samsung expects sales to decline by 8.6 percent to around 70 trillion won (52.6 billion euros). Against the background of external uncertainties, the company has recorded a “significant slump in the memory business due to sluggish demand,” it said. In addition, sales of smartphones were weaker.
