Registers 4Q net profit of KRW Overall, the company reported full-year revenue of KRW Fourth quarter earnings were driven by the components business, with the largest contribution coming from the Memory business that manufactures DRAM and NAND, as orders for high-performance memory products for servers and mobile storage were strong.
Total smartphone shipments decreased due to the lineup optimization of low-end models, while shipments of flagship products, such as the Galaxy Note 8, increased from the previous quarter. The Consumer Electronics Division, comprising the TV and home appliances businesses, posted gains for the quarter.
For home appliances, demand for high-end washing machines and ovens in North America and Europe was responsible for stronger revenue on a YoY basis. A one-off incentive paid to employees of the semiconductor division also affected earnings.
Looking ahead, the first quarter, despite being a traditionally slow season, is expected to show strong demand for memory products used in datacenters. Shipments of System LSI products are forecast to pick up, as orders for APs and image sensors for flagship devices are expected to improve.

The Memory Business achieved strong earnings amid favorable market conditions. For NAND, overall demand was strong due to strong seasonality for mobile, particularly high-density mobile products, as well as solid growth for server SSD.
Samsung strengthened profitability and posted solid earnings by promptly responding to strong demand for higher-density and value-added memory products for newly launched mobile models and server SSD. Server demand remained solid due to cloud expansion, new datacenters, and higher-density trends.
Mobile demand also remained strong thanks to increasing set numbers and content growth, mainly from new flagship model launches. Looking at the first quarter outlook for NAND, server SSD demand from major cloud providers is expected to remain strong despite weak seasonality, and the high-density trend from high-end smartphones is likely to continue.
Therefore, overall demand is expected to remain steady QoQ. On the supply side, supply is forecast to be limited despite industry expansion of layer products. Samsung will focus on accelerating layer transition and strengthening product differentiation via its V-NAND-based solutions. Forstable market conditions and strong demand are anticipated and the company will focus on mass production of V-NAND while strengthening technology leadership through a ramp-up of the next generation product after layer.
As for the DRAM outlook in the first quarter, datacenter demand is expected to offset slow seasonality. Mobile demand is likely to decrease under the weak seasonal effect, however the decline is likely to be less than it was in the previous year thanks to demand for high density at the high-end and content growth at the low-end.We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
