Samsung Electronics to tighten grip on management

[Samsung Electronics to tighten grip on management] 기사의 본문 이미지

Samsung Electronics is tightening its grip on management in a bid to surmount yet another crisis after a series of earnings forecast for the second quarter is announced.

In a message sent to employees and executives earlier this month, Samsung Electronics vice president Kwon Oh-hyun and Co-CEO Yoon Boo-keun and Shin Jong-kyun noted, “growth of our major products including smartphones and TVs are decelerating. Now is time to embrace mach management which calls for overhauling what we’ve been and working in different manners. Then we’ll be able to break through difficulties facing us,” according to sources in the industry Sunday.

Samsung should seek its growth engine from the unchartered business including wearable devices, IoT-related products, B2B and medical equipment, they stressed.

Samsung again proclaims it is in ‘crisis’ because a prevailing view is that the prospect for its second quarter earnings would be bleak. As early as this year, most brokerages expected Samsung’s operating profit for the second quarter to exceed nine trillion won ($8.9 billion). However, they now predict the figure would be far below eight trillion won.

Crisis facing Samsung is not just confined to Samsung itself. It affects Samsung affiliates including Samsung SDI, Samsung Elctro-mechanics, Samsung Display, resulting in hardship of other partners at home and abroad. Moreover, it is taking a heavy blow to domestic employment, investment and stock market.

The failure to seek next breakthroughs in the third quarter would prolong Samsung’s lackluster performances, Samsung Electronics concerned. This explains why it props up efforts for crisis management.

Market observers attribute weak earnings for the second quarter to sluggish sales of the ‘Galaxy S5.’ However, within Samsung Electronics, competition among global rivals, other nations’ regulations against Samsung and lack of growth engine are blamed for disappointing results.
