South Korean flat-screen maker LG Display Co Ltd posted on Wednesday its second consecutive quarterly loss, as soaring inflation and a gloomy economic outlook dealt a further blow to lacklustre demand for TVs and smartphones.
The Apple Inc supplier posted an operating loss of 759 billion won ($532.13 million) for the quarter from July to September, compared with a profit of 529 billion won in the year-earlier period.
It missed an average forecast of a loss of 474 billion won from 12 analysts polled by Refinitiv SmartEstimate.
