South Korean steelmaker POSCO on Thursday posted a 9 per cent rise in operating profit for the July to September quarter, as a sustained recovery in steel prices lifted earnings at its overseas operations.
POSCO, the world's fifth-biggest steelmaker, said consolidated operating profit was 1.13 trillion won ($1.01 billion) in the third quarter, up from 1.03 trillion won in the same period a year earlier and in line with an average estimate of 1.12 trillion won from analysts polled by Reuters.
Third-quarter revenue rose 18 per cent from a year ago to 15 trillion won.
