The South Korean panel maker said Thursday its October-December net income reached 319.7 billion won ($299 million), lower than the 352 billion won median forecast by analysts polled by FactSet.
Sales rose 32 percent to 8.74 trillion won. Operating profit totaled 587.3 billion won, compared with a 154.7 billion won loss a year earlier.
Analysts expect a lower profit in the current quarter due to slower sales of iPhones and iPads.
