Samsung formed Samsung Display (SDC) in 2012 as a merger between Samsung Mobile Display and S-LCD, in an attempt to streamline operations. There are now reports that SDC is now planning to split itself to two companies - one for OLED displays and one for LCDs.
Samsung Display had a tough 2014 (this was true for many other Samsung operations) and posted low operating profits and even a loss in Q3 as it lost its market leadership to LG Display. SDC now 'blames' its LCD business of "pulling down the entire earnings" while OLEDs are highly profitable. The LCD unit is reportedly lowering morale, too.
