Detailed SWOT Analysis of LG Electronics, Inc.

Strengths

This section is available only in the 'Complete Report' on purchase.

Weaknesses

1. Muted Overall Sales with Mobile Communications Business Unit acting as a drag factor: The company reported sales of 55.37 trillion KRW (USD 49.61 billion) for the year ending December of 2016. When we compare it to the data of 2015, there is decrease of 2.0%. In 2015, company’s sale stood at 56.51 trillion KRW. In fact, the sales level of 2016 is close to the sales level of 2011: in 2011, LG Electronics reported a sale 54.26 trillion KRW. Contributing to this drop in overall sales was the 18.7% decline in Mobile Communications Business Unit from 14.40 trillion KRW to 11.71 trillion KRW. Also, Innotek - an aerospace division of LG Electronics reported a decrease in sales (down 3.0% to 4.67 trillion KRW). Also, Mobile Communications Division constitute 23.03% of the overall revenues.

2. In BCG Matrix Analysis, Cell Phone Business is in the Dog Category and Smartwatch Segment is in Question Mark Category: LCD TVs and Home Appliances come under the category of Cash Cows and hence will keep generating the revenues in bulk. But, the cell phone business with its meagre 3.2% market share is pulling the ship. Also, the Smartwatch business is in the Question Mark Category and investments in the same can have higher risks involved.

3. Exposure to Exchange Risks: LG generates a chunk of its revenue from export model and thus, there is always an exposure to exchange related risks. Debt/Equity Ratio: With total liabilities being 24499 KRW (bn), Total Assets (2016) equivalent to 37855 KRW (bn) and the Debt/Equity Ratio (2016) being 24499/13356 = 183.43%, it is seen that the company has been heavily taking on debt and thus has high risk.
