The company’s operating profit declined 24.8% year over year to KRW1.31 trillion ($1.21 billion) in 2014 while sales also retreated 2.4% to KRW22.58 trillion ($20.95 billion) when compared to previous year.

In the fourth quarter of 2014, the company’s net profit slumped 38.2% on the year to reach KRW 109.4 billion ($101.4 million) while its sales posted a decreased of 4.8% to KRW5.37 trillion ($4.97 billion) compared with the same period of the preceding year.
