South Korea’s Hyundai Motor on Monday said second-quarter (Q2) net profit climbed 31.2 per cent, as a weaker local currency helped lift US income, while new models boosted domestic sales.
April-June profit reached 919.3 billion won ($780.44 million), from 700.6 billion won in the same period a year earlier. The result compared with the 1.03 trillion won average of 18 analyst estimates compiled by Refinitiv, reports Reuters.
Operating profit rose 30.2 per cent to 1.24 trillion won while revenue went up 9.1 per cent to 26.97 trillion won, the automaker said in a stock exchange filing.
