Behind this achievement lies the entrepreneurial spirit of Seoul Semiconductor, which has been committed to earning customer trust. Seoul Semiconductor incurred a huge loss as it maintained a safety stock worth USD 50 million, even during the COVID-19 pandemic, to deliver on its promises to customers. Nevertheless, it has not failed to supply 100% of committed orders to customers. Seoul Semiconductor's consistent and responsible behavior has earned the trust of its customers. As a result, in 2023, even under the deteriorating economic conditions, Seoul Semiconductor was able to limit its growth decline to negative 8%, whereas other major companies in the industry were hit harder, experiencing a reversal to negative 13% on average. This is the result of Seoul Semiconductor's perseverance in prioritizing customer trust above all else.

Under the vision of “Make the World Clean, Healthy and Beautiful with Light', Seoul Semiconductor is running innovation centers in six countries and production bases in four countries to ensure stability in product supply to customers.

* Organic growth refers to the growth that a company achieves by enhancing its own competitiveness, such as technology development, without relying on external drivers, such as mergers and acquisitions (M&As).
