At the start of our 30th anniversary year in November 1999, we dedicated ourselves to being at theforefront of the digital convergence revolution. Now in our 31st, we’re working hard to turn that ambitiouscommitment into reality through an initiative we call ourstrategy.The “digital” part of this strategy focuses on enhancing the value chain by realigning our operationsinto four major business portfolios—home networks, mobile networks, office networks, and corecomponents. The “ E” or “electronic” part aims to create a solid support framework for these portfoliosby optimizing the supply chain to make our operations as efficient and timely as possible.So, where do we expect this strategy to take us? All the way to the top in the very, very near future.And everyone’s invited to join us!03

The year 2000 presented Samsung Electronics with a host of externalchallenges. But even record-high oil prices, plummeting memory prices,and faltering technology sector stocks couldn’t stop us from once againrecording our best financial performance ever.

During the year, sales climbed over 31%, gross profit jumped over 45%,operating profit soared to 66%, and net income skyrocketed to 90%.While these impressive figures clearly show solid quantitative growth,they also show outstanding qualitative growth, providing unequivocalproof that our ongoing efforts to deliver greater value to our customers,partners, and shareholders have given us a solid, efficient, andprofitable financial structure that’s second to none.Operating 559.620,744.91999in millions of U.S. dollarsNet Income26,895,04611,378,234700.3in millions of wonTotal Assets10,702,199875,542SalesTotal Liabilities881,675Return on Equity RatioDebt to Equity RatioCapital 1999Shareholders’ EquityNet Debt Equity Ratio35,006US 15Earnings per ShareEBITDA MarginUS 28 The financial results in the above tables are for Samsung Electronics only and do not reflect the results of its subsidiaries or affiliates. US amounts are converted at a rate of US 1 1,259 won.05

06Sales For the 7th straight year, we led the domesticmanufacturing sector with sales of 34.3 trillion won,a 31.3% increase over 1999. Approximately 68% ofthe total came from international markets,representing 12% of Korea’s total year 2000exports. The Semiconductor Business Groupaccounted for 38% (13 trillion won), followed by theDigital Media System Business Group with 27% (9.3trillion won), the Information & CommunicationsBusiness Group with 22% (7.6 trillion won), and theHome Appliances Business Group with 8% (2.7trillion won).Gross Profit Ongoing restructuring and management innovation activities were behind theremarkable 45.3% growth in gross profit to 12.3trillion won. The year also saw the overwhelmingbias toward semiconductors begin to shift toward amore balanced profit structure.Operating Profit The 2000 operating profit of 7.4trillion won was the highest in company history andan outstanding 66% improvement over 1999,translating into an overall profit margin of 22%. TheSemiconductor Business Group led with 81.5% ofthis total (6.1 trillion won), an outstanding profitmargin of 47%, followed by the Information &Communications Business Group with 12.2% (908

billion won), the Digital Media System BusinessGroup with 7.1% (525 billion won), and the HomeAppliances Business Group with 2.5% (187 billionwon).Net income In 2000, net income shot up 90% tojust over 6 trillion won. This produced an equallyremarkable 82% rise in EPS from 19,214 won to35,006 won. The fact that net income rose nearly90%—nearly triple the 31% increase in sales—is asolid indicator that we’ve successfully made thetransition to a profit-driven organizationalstructure.Return on Equity Total shareholders’ equity rose to16.2 trillion won from 13.3 trillion won in 1999, a21.5% year-on-year increase. This as well as strongsales helped ROE jump from 31% year-on-year to41%, putting us in the same league as the world’stop corporations.Debt to Equity For the second straight year, wetook advantage of strong earnings to trim ouroverall debt. In 2000, we paid back 1.6 trillion won,slashing our 5.7 trillion won debt burden by 28% to4.1 trillion won. This in turn improved our debt toequity ratio from 85% in 1999 to 66%, laying astrong foundation for continued profitability.07

08Dear Customers, Partners, and Shareholders,“ Samsung Electronics is dedicated to leadingthe digital convergence revolution ”

I am pleased to report that 2000 was Samsung Electronics’ bestyear ever. During the year, our sales grew over 31.3% to 34.3trillion won. Even more remarkable was the 66% rise in operatingprofit to 7.4 trillion won, producing an outstanding 22% operatingmargin. Taken alone, these figures are an impressive testimony tothe success of our ongoing customer-driven efforts to enhance thevalue of the Samsung brand as well as our aggressive marketing andpricing policies in markets worldwide. Taken in the context thatthey and similarly impressive figures in 1998 and 1999 wererecorded in an environment marked by unfavorable economicconditions at home and unclear economic prospects abroad, they09

10are also unmistakable proof that the restructuring initiatives of thepast three years have helped lay a solid foundation for profitability.But our work is far from over.As I have stated many times, the coming decade will bringmore changes to the way we live, work, and play than the entirepast century. And Samsung intends to be the driving force behindas many of these changes as possible. Our ambitious plans for thenext five years call for us to more than double sales to 80 trillionwon as we aim for an operating margin of 15% in 2005. We alsointend to triple our brand value from US 5 billion to US 15billion. I would like to share with you now the master strategy thatwill make this all possible.On our 30th anniversary in November 1999, we made publicour vision of leading the digital convergence revolution. On our31st in 2000, we announced how we intend to translate this visioninto reality. Recognizing the critical role that digital convergenceand networking technology will play in our success in this endeavor,we have highlighted them in the name of our new master plan—Digital- e Company—a strategy that seeks to maximize bothcustomer and corporate value through a comprehensive solutionand process-centric approach to enhancing the value chain andoptimizing the supply chain.Our value chain focus is now putting in place an integrated,solution-focused organizational framework where each of our

divisions is assigned to one of four synergetic business portfolios:home networks, mobile networks, office networks, and core components.This reorganization will create a fertile internal climate for synergyand greater value as our divisions cooperate, share, and togethercreate digital solutions far superior to anything they could achieveon their own.Similarly, our supply chain focus now reflects the simple realitythat value innovation is not just about developing the mostinnovative products. It is about finding ways to enhance value atevery step of the supply chain process—from the research lab tothe marketing department. By applying e-processes to streamline,accelerate, and create opportunities for synergy within the businessprocess itself, we will reap the benefits across the entire organization, ultimately creating greater value for all. And that will help usmore effectively achieve our mission of bringing innovation anddigital technology to all our products in ways that will make lifeeasier, richer, and more enjoyable for all generations and allcustomers. We call it Samsung Digitall. And everyone’s invited.I would like to close with a sincere thank you for your supportduring the past year that helped make 2000 our best year ever. Welook forward to bringing you even better news in 2001.Jong-Yong YunVice Chairman and CEO11
