South Korea's LG Display Co Ltd on Monday said it has named LG Chem President Jeong Ho-young as its new chief executive officer. LG Display, a supplier to Apple , said in a statement that Chief Executive Han Sang-beom offered to step down over mounting losses. LG Display has been struggling with a global supply glut in liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) used in television sets, which has pushed down prices.
LG Display Co Ltd on Tuesday said it is looking to diversify its supplier base in case a diplomatic spat sees Japan extend export curbs on display-making materials bound for South Korea. Japan this month placed restrictions on the export to South Korea of three high-tech materials used particularly in making chips and displays, in a move widely attributed to a dispute about their shared wartime past. The restrictions - which essentially add paperwork and delays to the materials' export - have the potential to disrupt the global tech industry as Korea is home to some of the world's largest chipmakers and best-known consumer electronics brands.
LG Display Co Ltd on Wednesday said OLED R&D costs and stalled smartphone growth will likely translate into a weak 2019, after the Apple Inc supplier booked a first-quarter operating loss that was wider than analyst estimates. The South Korean manufacturer may underperform market expectations as it invests heavily in organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels at a time of weak demand for smartphones and tech gadgets in general, its chief financial officer said. "This year will require patience," Suh Dong-hee said on a call briefing analysts and journalists on its financial results.

(This story was refiled to correct typo in paragraph 5) By Heekyong Yang and Ju-min Park SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea's LG Display Co Ltd on Wednesday warned of weaker panel prices in the year ahead due to global economic uncertainty and U.S.- China trade tensions, as it posted a jump in quarterly profit thanks to surging sales of wearable screens. The company said strong sales of high-end screens for smart watches helped improve profitability, even as overall sales fell due to weakness in the television segment. The surge in profit from wearable screens underlines the Apple Inc supplier's ongoing efforts to focus on high value-added products to fend off declining prices for large panels due to aggressive output from Chinese rivals.
