SEOUL, April 8 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Electronics Co., the world's biggest technology firm by revenue, estimated Tuesday its 2014 first-quarter operating profit at 8.4 trillion won (US$7.9 billion).
The preliminary estimate represents a 4.3 percent fall from the operating profit of 8.78 trillion won a year earlier, the company said in a regulatory filing.
The figure, however, marks a 1.08 percent increase from the operating profit of 8.31 trillion won posted over the September-December period of 2013.
