Apple supplier LG Display posts fourth quarterly loss in a row

SEOUL, Jan 31 (Reuters) - Apple supplier LG Display Co Ltd reported its fourth quarterly operating loss in a row on Friday, hit by lower liquid crystal display (LCD) panel prices and restructuring costs.

The South Korean company posted a loss of 422 billion won ($361.55 million) in the October-December quarter, compared with an operating profit of 279 billion won in the same period a year previous.

This was smaller than the analyst estimate of a 578 billion won loss, according to Refinitiv SmartEstimate based on the estimate of 19 analysts.

Revenue fell 8% to 6.4 trillion won, LG Display said in a regulatory filing. (Reporting by Heekyong Yang Editing by Chris Reese)
