Motorola sees first quarterly profit for years, while LG profit falls

Motorola's quarterly results show the first operating profit for over three years. Net quarterly profit was $109 million (£68.5 million), up from $12 million year-on-year, while revenue was up 13% to $4.9 billion.

The company shipped 9.1 million mobile phones, including 3.8 million smartphones. There was a GAAP operating loss of $43 million for the Mobile Devices unit, although non-GAAP figures showed an operating profit of $3 million.

Sanjay Jha, Motorola co-CEO and head of the Motorola Mobility business, said "In the third quarter, Motorola Mobility showed positive momentum across the business, with Mobile Devices reaching profitability for the first time in over three years and Home continues to maintain its leadership position. Mobile Devices’ DROID X continues to sell extremely well, and we have had several other successful smartphone launches globally, including the DROID 2, the MING series in China, as well as a well-received introduction of our enterprise-ready DROID PRO. As we continue to make progress across the organization, we remain focused on further improving our financial results and pursuing the delivery of best-in-class software and hardware experiences to consumers and business users."

At LG, net profit was 8 billion Korean Won (£4.5 million) in the third quarter – that's a dramatic fall from the same period in 2009. Revenues at the LG Mobile Communications business dropped by 30% percent year-over-year, with handset shipments down 32% to 28.4 million handsets.
