10:34 EDTCREESamsung confirms plans to exit LED lamps, Lighting says
Samsung (SSNLF) confirmed that it is exiting the global LED lamps business, according to industry site Lighting. The publication quotes the company as issuing the following statement: “We have decided to discontinue our LED lamp business in all markets, except Korea, so that we can focus more resources on our core business areas. We will remain active in the LED industry through our LED component business, and continue to provide high-quality products and services to our customers.” Philips’ (PHG) recent decision to split off its lighting division has been blamed, at least in part, on the commoditized nature of the consumer LED lamp market, Lighting added. Shares of Cree (CREE), whose products consist of both LED and traditional lighting systems, are up 1% in early trading following the news of Samsung's plans. Reference Link
