SKorea court to rule on Samsung inheritance battle
Question of the Day
Lee Kun-hee, chairman of Samsung Electronics Co., which is the conglomerate’s flagship company, is facing off against his older brother and other relatives who all want a bigger piece of the Samsung cake.
The court’s decision might upset a dynastic succession in Samsung’s leadership as it could result in the unraveling of a cross-shareholding structure that allows Lee, who is South Korea’s richest person, to control the group as a minority shareholder.
Late last year, Lee’s only son Jay Y. Lee was promoted to vice chairman of Samsung Electronics, putting the 44-year-old closer to the top leadership position at the world’s largest maker of memory chips, smartphones and TVs.
