Hyundai Motor profit declines 29% as strikes cut production
[SEOUL] Hyundai Motor Co, whose executives are taking a pay cut because of an earnings slump, posted a drop in quarterly profit after labour strikes hurt production in South Korea.
Operating profit declined to 1.07 trillion won (S$1.31 billion) in the three months ended Sept 30 from 1.5 trillion won a year earlier, the Seoul-based company said Wednesday.
That compares with the 1.22 trillion won average of 23 analysts' estimates compiled by Bloomberg.
