Huang announced on the 9th that it posted sales of $5.133 billion (approximately 6.83 trillion won) and operating profit of 13.73 billion won ($77.42 million). Revenue has grown 27% in the same period last year, and operating profit has improved more than 400 billion won, considering that it paid $3151 million (365.3 billion won) in the third quarter of last year.
