The company swung to a profit of KRW2bn won, owing to gains in foreign currency transactions, compared to a loss of KRW563bn during the corresponding quarter of the previous year.
The quarter witnessed NAND Flash price stabilising due to limited production by manufacturers and the increased sales of solution products such as MCP and eMMC contributed to an overall profit, said the company.

The bit shipment for NAND Flash increased by 5%.
