It recorded the highest quarterly revenue since its establishment alongside its parent company, Seoul Semiconductor in this quarter.

The revenue increased 33 year-on-year and 17 quarter-on-quarter. In the visible LEDs, proportion of high-value-added products such as WICOP, an LED technology that does not require a package, gradually increased, resulting in a double-digit growth YoY and QoQ. WICOP is a technology that will be the core of Mini and Micro LEDs in the future, although it is currently used in automobile headlamps and LCD backlights with its light, thin and simple features.

UV LED revenue increased by triple digits YoY, continuing the growth trend.

Net debt ratio fell 30 percentage points (P) to 84.1 YoY due to the increase in cash and cash equivalents, and the current ratio also rose 15.4 percentage points YoY to 58, showing an improved financial status compared to the past.

Meanwhile, Seoul Viosys presented a conservative Q4 revenue guidance of KRW 120 billion to KRW 110 billion, which is the same as in the third quarter, considering external uncertainties. This is an increase of 20 to 31 compared to the same period last year.
