The company's shares have risen steadily since the beginning of the day; on Monday, July 8, it even crossed the 1 per cent mark in their gains. Over the past 5 trading sessions alone, the company shares have made gains of over 2.55 per cent or KRW 9,000.00 (KRW= Korean Won).

When it comes to the decline in profits, the numbers declined to USD 142 million in June. This visible decline is being attributed to the global drop in EV demand, which in turn has impacted battery makers like LG.

This aforementioned slowdown in demand appears to have plagued the whole industry at large, with various parts of the supply chain feeling the pinch. This decline in demand has also affected carmakers like Tesla and BYD, who have seen their sales dip in the recent past.

At 10:17 IST, the company share jumped 1.26 per cent or KRW 4,500, taking the overall value of each individual share to KRW 3,62,000.
