[SEOUL] Samsung Electronics Co Ltd on Tuesday said fourth-quarter operating profit jumped 50 per cent, matching its earlier guidance, as record earnings in its chips business masked the negative impact of its failed Note 7 phones.
The world's biggest maker of smartphones and memory chips said October-December operating profit was 9.22 trillion won (S$11.23 billion), compared with prior guidance of 9.2 trillion won.
Revenue remained flat at 53.3 trillion won from the same period a year earlier, versus its estimate of 53 trillion won.
Samsung also said it plans to buy back 9.3 trillion won worth of shares this year.
